When is Doomsday? Well it depends on who is counting. By my reckoning, there are four separate predictions for the end of everything that mature in the next year and a half or so.
Oct 21, 2011
Nov 11, 2011
Dec 12, 2012
Dec 21, 2012.
The most dubious date for End of All Things is Oct 21, 2011. It is the most dubious because the man who made the prediction, Harold Egbert Camping has unsuccessfully predicted the second coming of Christ two times already. If we want to be fairly certain that we have the wrong date, ask Camping.
The second date on the list was picked out by numerologists and dingbats. It is 11/11/11. I doubt that God, cosmic beings, or even Angels give a rat’s behind about the vagaries of the Gregorian calendar. So it’s pretty much a non starter. Moreover, there are those who say playful Angels make people notice the number 11 on clocks and such. One can only be disappointed in the weak halfheartedness of such Angels. Clocks will hit 11 minutes after 11 twice a day every day whether we notice it or not. It speaks to a desperation for miracles to call a common event miraculous. One might as well called buttered toast or ivy on telephone poles miraculous'”as some have done. Angels, how about a real miracle. Let’s try permanent and lasting peace in the Middle East or let all amputees grow new, useful and serviceable limbs overnight.
At last we come to the December 2012 end of all things. We can throw out the 12/12/12 date because it’s the numerologists getting auto erotic with their digits again. Now as for 21 December 2012. There is a lot of good evidence that some have mistaken the fact that Aztecs ran out of rock whilst counting up the centuries as the end of all things. Still once in awhile someone points out that there are somethings of note due in the 2012 to 2013 time frame. It is possible that we could see the effects of a magnetic pole reversal then. It is also possible that we could see increased cosmic particle activity or solar flares from the sun. And who knows, there is a certain national park with geysers and such that is due to blue up one day and take half of North America with it — .
The end of the world has been predicted many times and it has never happened. Not even once. You are safe to ignore all such predictions unless you are like me and you enjoy having end of the world parties while feeling safe and secure that the world is not going to end any time soon.
