    Is the world on the downhill slide???


    I do not advocate the theory of 2012, nor am I a religeous zealot, but we all have to agree that the world isnt in a good state, and it seems to be getting worse! Massive weather events worldwide, floods, famine, governments falling, etc...

    This video aired earlier this year on History Channel... it is food for thought... and a little scary!



    What do you think?

    Not just a 'little' scary but VERY scary, and very ominous. People of different countries, races, ethnicities, political views, etc. need to start pulling together to save this planet, each other, and the advances that man-kind has made thus far, or we're in very serious trouble.

    We need a friendly alien encounter. Show the world that we are all together on this blue sphere, and we better get our act together. Hmmm, would make a good movie/TV show

    It is quite scary. Though I'm not superstitious at all, I'm beginning to wonder whether somthing actually will happen in 2012. All we can do is wait, I suppose.

    If the Mayans were so good at predicting the future then how come they didn't see the Spanish coming

    I would have to agree, except the Mayans werent the only ones to predict a similar end, or the circumstances surrounding that fate. e.g. - Nostrodamus, The Bible, etc...

    Either way, the world is rapidly deteriorating around us, and it may be too late to undo the damage. What are all of us nerds gonna do when the power goes out? LOL!

    It is amazing how many people believe in such a BS and start worrying. The main reason why we are aware of so many negative events is our modern communication systems. 1000 years ago nobody would have had to worry about storms in Asia or famine in Africa - they just did not know.
