The End Is Near

Submitted by on January 20, 2013 – 8:01 PM12 Comments | 1,876 views

Have you ever heard the phrase “To the ends of the Earth?”
How many ends does the Earth have anyway? Well, Earth is a globe, so technically it has no end, but looked at from a different perspective it could also be said to have an infinite number of ends. Having passed two recent biblical apocalypses predicted by Harold Camping, missing out on a Nibiru that utterly failed to materialize, and narrowly squeaking by the Mayan apocalypse by finding the next calender what is left?

While the video is really quite pretty it really does not offer any information, but the description that goes along with it delivers all the gory and contradictory details:

SCIENTIFIC EXPERTS globally are predicting and expecting that 3 years from now, all life on Earth may well come to an end. Some are saying it’ll be we humans that would set it off. Others believe that a natural disasterous phenomenon will be the cause. And the religious folks are saying it’ll be God himself who would press the stop and restart button. The following are some likely arguments as to why the world would end by the year 2015. Go through them and leave your view in comments.

Reason one: Mayan calendar
The first to predict 2015 as the end of the world were the Mayans, a bloodthirsty race that were good at two things — building highly accurate astrological equipment out of stone and sacrificing virgins.
Thousands of years ago they managed to calculate the length of the lunar moon as 329.53020 days, only 34 seconds out. The Mayan calendar predicts that the earth will end on MAY 15, 2015. Given that they were pretty close to the mark with the lunar cycle, it’s likely they’ve got the end of the world right as well.

Whoa, talk about “been there done that!” The Mayans must have really wanted to cover all the bases. They predicted the end in 2012, and just in case maybe their computations were wrong they went ahead and predicted another apocalypse in 2015. Pretty good for a culture that could not predict their own demise, or invent the wheel.

Reason two: Sun storms
Solar experts from around the world monitoring the sun have made a startling discovery. Our sun is in a bit of strife. The energy output of the sun is, like most things in nature, cyclic and it’s supposed to be in the middle of a period of relative stability. However, recent solar storms have been bombarding the earth with lot of radiation energy. It’s been knocking out power grids and destroying satellites. This activity is predicted to get worse and calculations suggest it’ll reach its deadly peak sometime in 2015.

And the last few billion years of enduring solar storms has not wiped out the Earth, so while solar activity may be increasing, there is no reason to suspect it will destroy anything more than cell phone reception and satellite TV.

Reason three: The atom smasher
Scientists in Europe have been building the world’s largest particle accelerator. Basically, its a 27 km tunnel designed to smash atoms together to find out what makes the universe tick. However, the mega-gadget has caused serious concern, with some scientists suggesting that it’s properly even a bad idea to turn it on in the first place. They’re predicting all manner of deadly results, including mini black holes. So when this machine is fired up for its first serious experiment in 2015, the world could be crushed into a super-dense blob the size of a basketball.

I think you got the date a little wrong on this one. Cern is up and running and happily humming away knocking out those Higg’s Bosons. No black holes yet. Even if they are created, all the models show that quantum black holes evaporate as soon as they are created and pose no real danger. If you are going to accept the model that predicts them, you have a hard time refuting that same model that says they are no threat.

Reason four: The Bible says it
If having scientists warning us about the end of the world isn’t bad enough, religious folks are getting in on the act as well. Interpretations of the Christian Bible reveal that the date for Armageddon, the final battle between good an evil, has been set for 2015. The I Ching, also known as the Chinese Book of Changes, says the same thing, as do various sections of the Hindu teachings.

Really, none of them offer dates. What dates there are come from subjective interpretations based on a multitude of assumptions and if you wish to use any of these holy books as source material you must first prove the validity of the chosen book. (here we go)

Reason five: Super volcano
Yellowstone National Park in United States is famous for its thermal springs and old faithful geyser. The reason for this is simple — it’s sitting on top of the world’s biggest volcano and geological experts are beginning to get nervous sweats. The Yellowstone volcano has a pattern of erupting every 650,000 years or so, and we’re many years overdue for an explosion that will fill the atmosphere with ash, blocking the sun and plunging the earth into a frozen winter that could last up to 15,000 years. The pressure under the Yellowstone is building steadily, and geologists have set 2015 as a likely date for the big bang.

Yes, Yellowstone is super volcano, but while earthquakes are wholly unpredictable, volcanic eruptions offer up many signs of their occurrence prior to the actual event. And actually it is not yet overdue as the last activity, the Lava Creek eruption is dated at 640,000 years ago. 10,000 to go, but we will consider ourselves warned.

Reason six: The physicists
This one’s case of bog — simple maths mathematics. Physicists at Berkely University have been crunching the numbers. They’ve determined that the earth is well overdue for a major catastrophic event. Even worse, they’re claiming that their calculations prove that we’re all going to die, very soon. They are also saying that their prediction comes with a certainty of 99 per cent; and 2015 just happens to be the best guess as to when it occurs.

Welcome to reality. Random events have had catastrophic effects upon the life on this planet. Key word being random. There is no mathematics that predicts a random event to occur.

Reason seven: Earth’s magnetic field
We all know the Earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that shields us from most of the sun’s radiation. What you might not know is that the magnetic poles we call North and South have a nasty habit of swapping places every 750,000 years or so — and right now we’re about 30,000 years overdue. Scientists have noted that the poles are drifting apart roughly 20-30 kms each year, much faster than ever before, which points to a pole-shift being right around the corner. While the pole shift is under way, the magnetic field is disrupted and will eventually disappear, sometimes for up to 100 years. The result is enough UV outdoors to crisp your skin in seconds, killing everything it touches

It is actually quite simple to measure the degree to which the poles shift. For the last 200 million years that shift has been measured at 0.2 degrees every million years. There have been reversals in the poles, but these events are non-cyclic and so thoroughly unpredictable. Debate is still open about the effects. Some experts theorize the magnetic field disappears briefly during a reversal, which would allow the Earth to be bombarded with devastating radiation. Others say it is significantly more likely that a polar shift happens with the magnetic field in place so satellites, terrestrial navigation, probably power systems and migratory birds would all be affected, and life would be disrupted but not destroyed. There is no solid evidence linking polar shifts throughout Earth’s history to extinction events.

It is just amazing to me that all of these events, though completely unrelated to each other all come to bring about the ultimate demise of all life on Earth in the same year. Each event is offered as being supported by definitive proof and expert analysis despite several of them already being proven wrong.

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

    Mega numbers such as earth being few billion years old are hoax or a non-deterministic error.

    Feel free to post your evidence of the age of the Earth.
    Radiometric dating based upon isotope decay, comparison of terrestrial and lunar rocks, as well as  comparative analysis of the sun with other stars places the age of the Earth at 4.5 billion years give or take a few hundred million

    I don’t have time to read all of these, but this one “The energy output of the sun is, like most things in nature, cyclic and
    it’s supposed to be in the middle of a period of relative stability” is actually a false statement, as the Sun is currently approaching the peak of an ACTIVE phase, which will be followed by a period of relative inactivity.

  • Dung Shooken

     The concept of you being intelligent is also a hoax.

    If you cannot accept the accuracy of isotope decay, I hope you never trust your GPS as it will send you off a cliff.

    Yes, it is absolutely true that the Dutch government was given a false moon rock. Which proves one rock was not from the lunar surface and has no bearing upon the hundreds of other samples.

    There is no theory involved in comparative analysis. To compare one thing to a large group of similar things requires only the presence of each of the things to be observed. The rest is pretty basic math as far as nuclear physics goes.

    But do feel free to post your own belief about the age of the Earth, and your supporting, irrefutable evidence.

  • IThinkso

    Radiometric Geological Age vs. Global Positioning System (Navigation), No comparison! GPS, a product of the public domain consumer business, while radiometric dating is the process, not in public domain. It’s purpose is to prove or disprove. If not correct it can stray, far more people than the passenger airliner.

    Here is my real world story for GR (Ghost Reality) readers; my recently purchased portable CO2 Alarm gadget (from Home depot) strangely went off, for no obvious reasons. I left it in the garage (fully functional with two cars) for the test purpose, after it was bought. It was there for more than two weeks, and still is, without any problem, under same conditions. But that special day, as we were very close to opening the garage and drive in, we heard intriguing beep sounding intervals. Curiously I inquired, Is someone’s phone beeping? Something in the car beeping? Something outside the car beeping? …few seconds before opening the garage. But as we drove in, it became clear that our CO2 alarm gadget was beeping with blinking red led. I approach it with the realization that there is a normal flow of oxygen in the garage. It was reading 52 on its display panel.  As I looked for reset button, I actually saw the reading jumped to 225, while it was in my hands. It still is sitting in the same conditions as the very first time…Software glitch? Hardware glitch? Trapped CO2? (A car had left the garage about 2 hours before)…. Or Haunted!!!?

    Charles Robert Darwin was born merely 203 years from the present days. It just doesn’t feel right that 203 years of history should overpower 4.5 billion years. I believe, he and his forefather’s were not from monkeys and that, he was simply misled by Shaytaan.

     GPS uses speed of light calculations (the time it takes your signal to reach various satellites in the gps array) to triangulate your position on earth, the only clock accurate enough to carry out those calculations is based on radio isotope decay.

    “The most recent estimated amount of uncertainty achieved corresponds to a Yb clock uncertainty of about one second over the lifetime of the universe so far, 15 billion years.”
