Why 2012?

Some people, like myself, believe that in 2012 there will some kind of apocalyptic disaster, I think it will be from many natural disasters, earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, etc... It basically, as far as I'm concerned, all started because of the ancient Mayan calendar and how accurate it's been to this date and that it "resets" on Dec 21 or 23 2012. Their calendar was based off of the stars and the solstice and what not and started when the earth last "reset" which was 5,123 years ago and that it "resets" every 5,125 years, which happens to be 2012. That alone though wouldn't convince me of anything, but of course there is more. Along with the Mayan calendar, is the Galactic Alignment. Basically on the winter solstice of 2012 the Sun will be in perfect alignment with the "Great Rift", which is a bunch of overlapping molecular dust clouds about 300 light years away that is right in between the solar system and the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way. It is believed that the Mayans knew of this and that also aided them in their calendar observations. There is much more to the Galactic Alignment but I won't go into a shit ton of detail. Now things are getting more interesting, so I begin to research what else is there to 2012. Along with the Galactic Alignment though, is that in the winter solstice of 2012 we will be entering a new Zodiac Era which is the Age of Aquarius. Another thing relating to the 2012 phenomenon is the Web Bot project. Not to much on it, but it basically gathers "web chatter" from across the globe to "predict" human-caused events, it predicted the Sep. 11 attacks. It's creator asserts that it has "predicted" when the world will end, which happens to be Dec 21 2012. There are other things that aren't so compelling, like the I Ching. It is one of the oldest Chinese texts, and is a book on divination. If some bullshit math is done with I Ching, some odd similarities in human history exist within the book. Basically, since it is comprised of 64 hexagrams, or six-line figures, multiply 64 x 6 and you get 384, which is almost the exact number of days in a 13 lunar month calendar. This is just the beginning, ethnobotanists and fractal time experts Terrence and Dennis McKenna kept going on their fractions and multiples. Take 384 and multiply back with 64 and you get 67 years, 104.25 days, which happens to be the 6 minor sunspot cycles that have occurred. Take 67 years, 104.25 days and multiply it again to 64 and you get 4306+ years, which happens to equate to 2 Zodiac Age changes. Finally take 4306 and multiply by 6 and you get 1 "precession" of the equinoxes, or the Galactic Alignment. Bullshit math, but weird coincidences, there is more, but these are the more compelling things that point to a disaster happening in 2012.


  1. Thank you for the kind comments on my blog :)

  2. I'm gonna disagree with you, but I assume you were expecting someone to eventually.

    It's not that I don't believe these events happened. What I don't believe, however, is that each has a correlation with the other.

    And even if something occurred on 2012, it doesn't exactly mean that occurrence will be cataclysmic. In fact, what is possibly most cataclysmic is not what will (or may not) happen on 2012, but our reaction in believing this (possible) myth.

  3. Interesting post, have you read this article:

    May or may not pertain to you, but I found it pretty interesting.

  4. I wrote a pretty lengthy paper on this for a course at my university. It was then forced to undergo an arduous process during which my professor tried to assess whether the topic was paper-worthy. Eventually I got an A but still...

  5. the minor chance of a disaster happening in the descember of 2012 is just below 1.
    the major disaster you are preparing for, is however less likely.
