I wouldn't actually count Y2K as an end of the world prophecy... it was a problem that we created and we fixed

Believing anything and everything does not make you openminded. It makes you a sheep.

holding an open mind and considering the possibility that some things are beyond or oblivious to our understanding is not the same as "believing everything and anything" nt

This whole rapture/end of the world thing got me thinking yesterday. I think deep down, we all are a little nervous about it, and alot of us, myself included, crack jokes and call others crazy for believing into the hype, in order to ease ourserlves.

Personally, I didn't buy into yesterday's, I think 2012 is also B.S, but I do know it's happened before with the dinosaurs, and it can possibly happen again to us in a different form or matter.

We are only debating this because media likes to cash in with movies on prophecies, doomsday scenarios, and the masses buy into it.

For most of us, we see through these 'end of the world' dates ahead of time, but I still think deep down, we are all a little curious to see what happens that day. 99.9% of the time, nothing will happen, and we are quite lucky for that.

However, we do know one day that a massive earthquake, asteroid/ something more plausible, etc, CAN happen.

Yes, anything can happen, the joke is on the predictors and fortune tellers who claim to know before the fact, as they try to benefit from it.

2 problems exist with 2012 that nobody can deny......
( The Earth goes through one complete precessional cycle over a period of approximately 25,800 years and it happens next year.)

1)Indirect consequences could be the effect on the Sun which will increase its activity in response to the Energy radiating from the super-massive black hole. We are already increasingly seeing this manifest in the form of increasing solar activity, and in particular sun spots, solar flares and most dangerous of all coronal mass ejections. If Earth were to receive a broadside from a coronal mass ejection, the outcome would be absolutely devastating.

2)Locally, as Earth transitions into alignment with Galactic Centre and the super-massive black hole Energy radiating from there, the axis of rotation of Earth could well be "pulled" into alignment with the plane of the Energy, resulting in a geophysical pole shift of the 23.5 degrees mentioned previously. Again, the outcome of such an event could well be catastrophic giving rise to, including but not limited to massive land movements, volcanic activity, massive tsunamis hundreds or even thousands of feet high and much more. I believe that this geophysical pole shift has already started, and accounts for many of the abnormal weather conditions increasingly being experienced. Whether this will be an accelerating process or whether any final shift will be sudden, as seems to be the case in the past, we cannot be certain.

I mean nothing could happen, but nobody can be certain on it. No matter what, this event only happens every 25,800 years so its a very rare occurrence to be living in.

My history isn`t exact, but what is more surprising is that the Mayans predicted this date exactly right? Not that it would be the end of the world, the fact that the earth would align perfectly with all the other planets.

To me, that is pretty amazing, people could predict this 100 of years ago.

South African rapture believers stuck with huge hotel bill

Instead of going to heaven, a group of South Africans who checked into a Johannesburg hotel to await the end of the world now have a big bill to pay.

News Desk
May 23, 2011 04:15

Johannesburg, South Africa is still here after the supposed end of the world on May 21, 2011, and a group of rapture believers who checked into a downtown hotel now have a huge bill to pay.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — A group of South Africans who expected to ascend to heaven on May 21 have instead found themselves stuck with a massive hotel bill.

Johannes Coetzee had traveled the country spreading the word about the impending apocalypse, Afrikaans newspaper Beeld reports. Coetzee is said to be a devotee of American TV evangelist Harold Camping, who believed that May 21, 2011 would be “Judgment Day,” when the “good people” would be taken up to heaven and everyone else left to perish in earthquakes and other natural disasters.

In preparation for Judgment Day, Coetzee and about 80 of his followers on Friday checked into a mid-range hotel in downtown Johannesburg. The group had booked 50 rooms — some of the rapture believers were sharing — and had not let hotel management know when they were planning to check out, hotel staffer Shaun O’Reilly told Beeld reporters.

The rapture hasn't come (so far), and now Coetzee's group is left with a hotel bill in the thousands of dollars. A single room at the Orion Devonshire Hotel, which is in the Braamfontein area of Johannesburg, costs $98 a night (meals not included) and a double room costs $168.

When Beeld reporters visited the Orion Devonshire Hotel, Coetzee refused to talk. He wouldn’t answer his cell phone or respond to messages.

Harold Camping was similarly hard to find on Sunday. Reuters reported that the curtains of his house were drawn shut and no one opened his door. Camping has since emerged to say that he is "flabbergasted" that the world did not end.

Coetzee’s Facebook profile has reportedly been inundated with messages from sympathizers — and people making fun of him.

"Johannes, you can come out of your hiding place now, the danger is gone,” one man wrote.

With a name like Johannes, couldn't get just tell them that it was his town, which includes unlimited mini-bar access?

Matthew 24:36
"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

You know youre 100% wrong when you guess year day and hour.
I cant believe there are Christians out there that follow this guy.
