DOOMSDAY: 21 December 2012 Apocalypse

A scene from the end-of-the-world movie "2012."
21 December 2012 is an important date as many people believe it will herald the start of the Apocalypse.  It marks the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar and the conclusion of the fourth and final b’ak’tun
Pick a day, any day and start counting. The long-count calendar is
a linear system based upon tracking time through units of twenty. 

Some archaeologists and Maya experts say the prophecy predicts the return to Earth of a powerful God named Bolon Yokte and even perhaps the start of a new era, but not a global catastrophe.
Bolon Yokte K’u suggestS the number ‘nine’, like ‘nine steps’. In the Maya books of Chilam Balam, it is written that a group of nine different gods will descend upon the Earth. They come with sorrow and disaster, but will bring gifts in the end. They will ‘re-order what they once created’.
The oldest surviving manuscript of the Popol Vuh dated to 1701 describes the Gods first creating three failed worlds, followed by a successful fourth world in which humanity was placed. The Maya Long Count’s “start date” was set at a point in the past (11 August 3114 BC in our Gregorian calendar) marking the end of the third world and the beginning of the current one. As a result the fourth world will have reached the end of its 13th b’ak’tun, Maya date, on December 21, 2012.
While some people believe Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive spiritual or physical transformation, others suggest that 21 December 2012 marks the beginning of the End. Some scenarios suggested for the Armageddon include Earth’s collision with a black hole, passing asteroid or a planet called “Nibiru” and even destruction from the forces of the galactic alignment or the next solar maximum which is to occur soon.

Whatever the case, watch the video for more Maya 2012 info as you have less than 24 hours left  (as of this posting) until 21 December 2012 to make up your mind, or is there? Let's wait and see.....

7 FAILED Doomsday predictions.

In preparation for the so-called end of the world this Friday, December 21, based on the Mayan calendar,
Aztec Calendar-an adaptation of the Mayan calendar
here are some of the most recent, popular doomsday predictions that didn't come true – some with tragic consequences:

1. Banahaw doomsday
A Short Trek to a cave dedicated to Mary the Virgin at Mt. Banahaw
In 1999, pilgrims flocked to the mystic Mount Banahaw to welcome the new millennium, believed to bring the end of the world. Isabel Suarez, a woman who leads a sect called Mistica, said the so-called end of the world will come through earthquakes, famine and other disasters. It has been 12 years since the so-called doomsday. Mount Banahaw can still be visited by pilgrims and tourists alike.

2. Pat Robertson

Best-selling author and “The 700 Club” host Pat Robertson first predicted in 1976 that the end of the world was coming in 1982. In a May 1980 broadcast of his show, he even went on the record to say that “I guarantee you by the end of 1982 there is going to be a judgment on the world.” Robertson continues to make predictions on the price of oil, US presidential elections, terrorist attacks, etc.

3. “The 1980s: Countdown to Armageddon

Based on the New York Times best-seller “The 1980s: Countdown to Armageddon” by Christian writer Hal Lindsey, it was possible that the battle of Armageddon could take place soon, noting, “the decade of the 1980s could very well be the last decade of history as we know it." Among his scenarios is a surprise Soviet nuclear attack. The Soviet Union collapsed and not only did the world survive. Lindsey, who went on to write “Planet Earth - 2000 A.D.,” which states that Christians should not plan to still be on earth by the year 2000. 

4. May 21, 2011 rapture

Harold Camping (American pastor, Christian radio broadcaster) predicted that the world would end on May 21, 2011- the date of the “rapture” – when Jesus Christ returns to earth and gathers the souls of those who have been saved. Camping had previously predicted that Judgment Day would occur on or about September 6, 1994. The world is still here. Camping said his prediction was an “incorrect and sinful statement” and announced that he is out of the prediction business.

5. Y2K

Several analysts predicted that the entire computer network would crash in the year 2000, causing widespread dysfunction to a population that has long been dependent on technology as the year 2000 would register as 1900. The year 2000 turned out to be just like any other year, save for a few scattered power failures. 

6. Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple

Jim Jones, who founded the Christian doomsday cult Peoples Temple in the 1950s, earlier predicted that the world will end in a nuclear war. He then developed a belief called “translation,” in which he and his followers would die together and move to another planet for a life of bliss.

His followers drank cyanide-laced grape punch in a mass suicide in 1978. Jones, who died of a gunshot wound to the head in 1978, was found to have been “unbalanced” because of excessive drug use.

7. Heaven’s Gate

When the comet Hale-Bopp appeared in 1997, Marshall Applewhite, the leader of the UFO cult Heaven's Gate, believed rumors that were spreading at the time among paranormal followers that an alien spacecraft was trailing it. For Applewhite, this so-called spaceship would “transport their spirits aboard for a journey to another planet” and that “their souls would ascend to the spaceship and be given new bodies.”

Applewhite and 38 of his followers committed mass suicide -- the largest to occur inside the US.

RARE "Blueberg" auction- photo of iceberg that sank Titanic to be sold.

Yahoo! News - A one-of-a-kind photograph of the iceberg thought to have sunk the 'Titanic' (Image; RR Auctions)
A caption by Captain W F Wood identifies it as the 'blueberg' - tinted blue by the sun's rays - that sank the Titanic in three hours. 

A photograph of the iceberg that sank the Titanic - thought to be one of the only images of the iceberg in existence- is to be auctioned in America. No images taken from Titanic's deck survived the collision, which caused the loss of 1,502 lives. The picture was taken by the captain of a different steam ship, the S.S. Etonian, two days before the fatal collision that sank the Titanic. It was photographed in the correct area, and matches descriptions and sketches of the fatal iceberg.  Sketches by sailors on board the Titanic - including Frederic Fleet, the lookout who first spotted it - look 'eerily similar' to the photograph .

The U.S. auctioneer R R Auctions  says,  "There are, of course, no surviving photographs of the iceberg taken from Titanic’s deck on that fateful night, several photographs of icebergs in the vicinity of the collision, taken before and after the event, have been offered throughout the years as candidates for the iceberg responsible for the disaster."
"The fact that the particular iceberg in the Etonian image offered here is known to have been photographed at a position arguably 2-3 days’ iceberg travel time to Titanic’s foundering position, and that it substantially matches both the sketches drawn by Titanic’s crewmen and the photo taken after the ship went down, allows noted Titanic experts to establish this photograph as capturing the iceberg everyone has been talking about for the past century."

The 13"x11" photo will go on sale on December 13. It is expected to fetch $10,000.
