KiwDaWabbit: So, it's like the Book of Revelation?
CygnusDarius: I heard shroom trips are awesome.
SlothB77: i read some article where they interviewed a Mayan and he was like 'we don't believe the world will end. Our calendar will end, but a new calendar will begin. It is like a new beginning.' what kind of calendar is 5125 years? how do you come up with a random number like that?the world doesn't end every december 31st for the rest of us does it?
fatassbastard: KiwDaWabbit: So, it's like the Book of Revelation?Yep, and the Quran, and the Vedas and the Tale of Taliesin: manufactured mythology.
SearchN: The Mayan prophecy is real. The only issue is that we are viewing the dates wrong. The Mayan's never accounted for a leap year, so in reality the end of the world is going to happen this coming June.
born_yesterday: Well, the Ancient Aliens guy pointed out that the Mayan stone calendar and the hadron collider look virtually identical, so that's all the evidence I need.
flup: So wait... the world is NOT going to end on Dec 21?
All_Farked_Up: So the Dresden codex is a fake?
FTA: The December 21 date appeared in a 1975 book by Terence McKenna, a writer who is also infamous for strange descriptions of "machine elves" he saw while he was tripping balls.
Terence McKenna, 1975
Snapper Carr: CygnusDarius: I heard shroom trips are awesome.I've had a couple of dozen and I've never had a bad one (can't say the same about LSD)
doglover: Their callander has base 20 and base 18 units parts.
darwinpolice: "Shroom trip" is always what I mean by "prophecy."
KiwDaWabbit: CygnusDarius: I heard shroom trips are awesome.Mucho gusto, me llamo Bradley-uh.
boinkingbill: Where is Harold Campings when you need him?
socoloco: It's amazing the level of shiat religious whack jobs and new agers leap to because they so desperately want the world to end. They are all death cults. Jews, Christians, Muslims, New Agers just froth at the mouth over messiahs, imams and "masters" to destroy the world.You're all a bunch of sick farks. Just my opinion, don't take it personally. You need to get a farking hobby or become gainfully employed to a degree that makes you responsible for helping make the world a better place.Religion is the science of pulling bullshiat out of your ass to force down people's throats.
anfrind: Most New Agers historically haven't seen the end of the Mayan calendar as a doomsday event. Those who believe it has some real meaning usually interpret it as the date of some kind of worldwide spiritual awakening. You know, New Agey stuff.The idea of 12/21/2012 as the end of the world didn't really take off until the movie "2012" came out and The History Channel did a few so-called "documentaries" on the Mayan calendar.
