Just so we know everyone is still alive, feel free to post about how anticlimactic your "end of world" experience was. (feel free to ridicule those who believed the end was nigh)

So far, I've walked to my local service station and bought cigarettes. Still Alive.

You have to remember, on this side of the world is where the Mayan calendar was created, so it goes by our time, not the rest of the worlds. We are still on the 20th, so Doomsday(LOL) hasn't officially happened yet. LMAO!

OK. You got me. Can't we just pretend? Actually, consider this topic your last will and testament in case the end times to occur. *snickers*

Also don't forget that it could happen at any point during the 24 hour period of December 21st. Not the instant the clock turns midnight and the 21st starts.

That is why we all need to check in at this topic. If you see any apocalyptic-like events, report here first. We must be vigilant.

Winter solstice is only time that matters, since thats when their calendars ran. Doesn't happen until 11:12 AM UTC tomorrow

Doesn't matter. Its timed based on the Winter Solstice, which doesn't take into account any other calendar inventions or time changes.

Question: What do you predict will be the most common excuse for the world failing to end?

Date shifting: "Oh, we said 21st of Dec 2012? We meant 2021. You can see how someone could confuse that"

Spiritual apocalyspe: " well, no one said it was going to be the end of the world, per se, we meant a spiritual awakening!"

Obfuscation: "These things are complex, we need more time to understand them. Ancient cultures left many clues *blah blah blah*"

Less then 12 hours till midnight. East coast time would be about 3am your time.

Well the obvious conclusion would be: "Oh, well it is actually set for 12-12-2112." or "12-21-2112."

2112? How are you going to scare anyone today with date so far away, mate? It may as well be 3112. :p

Why would there be excuses, pretty much anyone here knows the worlds isn't going to end and that the Mayan calendar doesn't actually end, they just never got around to write the next "year" for it since the Spanish killed them all, and it's circular anyway. it's simply their version of the end of a very long year, new one to come. and even if they Mayan calendar did predict the end of the world, people over here are intelligent enough to know the Mayans didn't know when the world would end anyway.

But hey, maybe there's just more intelligent people over on this side of the lake. But then, even most of the doomsday preppers featured on the discovery or NGC show aren't prepping for the mayan end, but rather a global or American economic collapse or one of the other socio economic collapses they think could happen. So I don't know where everyone gets all this "everyone is afraid of the end of the world" thing from, I only ever see people talk about it as a joke.

You have to take into consideration that if "Doomsday" doesn't occur, then there's no scare tactics that will work on the current generation. So in all you have to embed the seed for the later generations.

100 years? You could invent another doomsday thing for the lamestream media to fuss over in 2 years time. You're being far too generous.

Well, let's see then. 2018 which is the Year of the Dog. So maybe everyone will say that 2018 will be the year God comes back. Year of the Dog = Year of God. Hopefully you see what I did there. LMAO!
