Doomsday Scenario (1)

There are today more doomsday scenarios than ever. We should make a mental note of them but we should not believe in them.

Astrologer skilled in Mayan techniques offers free reading! states one Google advert. We shall here and now see if that is a good idea!

The dangerous thing is that many of the world's most vociferous madmen actually believe in these superstitions, predictions and so-called revelations and so construct their many and various scenarios and try to work towards them.

One example. The world, or the age, will not end on 21st December 2012 as predicted by the Mayan Calendar. The facts, and history, show that the contrary is true.

A new era of enlightenment, courtesy of the Hubble Telescope, NASA, the Internet, DNA, the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, ISS, etc., etc. is already underway. Millions are taking giant steps away from old superstitions and dogma which have haunted their existences and cursed their lives since the days before they were born.

Away from the prophets of doom another future beckons; one with a smile on her face.

In the following couplets the reader should notice where the full stop is placed and see the significance of that.

The Mayan World°
Has long since ended.

The Calendar
Went on too long

°note: Any modern descendants of the ancient Mayans who are using the Long Count Calendar will simply begin all over again on 22nd December 2012. The calendar has nothing to do with doomsday or any other unlikely scenario. It is merely a sequence.


  1. Hilarious! indeed it was.

    But I also like your suggestion that we make a note of these doomsday predictions even if we don't take them seriously. Then we'll be able to look back objectively to ascertain if we spoke too soon

  2. Food for thought here Gwilym. At present there are one or two madmen in the world causing mayhem.

    Nothing lasts for ever. I am watching a really good programme about the History of Britain at present - it does help to put things into perspective.

  3. Gedle,
    you are absolutely right of course. We can look back to events only recently - the so-called millennium bug and the end of life as we know it!

    you mean this mess we've brought on ourselves at the Berlin Conference by dividing up Africa (so it looks a bit like Europe) and other bits of the world with our old straight line rulers.

  4. Will the astrologer be as infamous in his predictions as Private Frazer?! If so, we're not doomed.

  5. have been reading ken ring's earthquake predictions at

    he also mentions whale strandings in relation to earthquakes. are you familiar with his site?

  6. Thank you Gedle. I shall look at Ken Ring's earthquake predictions as soon as possible - sometime later today. I'll get back to you.

  7. Ken Ring, as mentioned by Gedle, is worth looking at if, like me, you believe that the moon, and other bodies in our solar system, may be partly responsible for our earthquakes. Also applies, of course, if you merely have an open and investigative mind. Thank you again, Gedle.
