Do you believe the 2012 Mayan/Nostradamus prophecy?
What is the 2012 phenomenon, anyway? Well, here's what Wikipedia has to say..
The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs that cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on December 21, 2012. This date is regarded as the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae related to this date have been proposed.
To those who do believe in the prophecy, I totally respect your opinion/beliefs. My stand? No. Come December 21, 2012, the world would end? Pshh! Crap. I really think that people are just being paranoid.
I know that the Mayan Calendar ends on that said date.. but it will start over again after the 21st. It's just a cycle.. a calendar. Just like our very own calendar.. it is on a 12-month cycle and it just repeats itself indefinitely. I think this whole idea of the 2012 phenomenon was blown out of proportion because of fear and paranoia.
Though, I can totally understand if some people think and act that way. With everything that has happened in the past few months.. tsunamis, earthquakes, etc.. one couldn't help but feel afraid. But come on, why should you be afraid? Shesh!
Here's my point.
Why should you be afraid of that date.. 12-21-2012.. when you may die tomorrow? Life is too short.. and it is a borrowed gift from God. One could never tell how, where and WHEN you're going to die. Then why should you be afraid of dying on that said date, when you could be having your last breath while washing the dishes, or while watching TV or while taking a nap? Yeah, it sounds kinda silly.. but it's true. No one knows when our last days will be.. so here's a thought. Live LIFE today. Do something worthwhile with your life so that someday, the next generation will have something to remember you by. Your legacy. Stop being too paranoid about the future and live today.
What are your views about this? It's totally okay if you disagree with me. These are my thoughts about the 2012 prophecy. And yours are....?
