Next Year: December 21, 2012 – will it be the end of the world? You can believe the Mayan prophecies, look at the scientific predictions of solar flares and planetary alignments, supervolcanos, earthquakes, etc.
The bubbling hot caldera that causes Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park to erupt and fascinate audiences is a supervolcano. It’s conical shape goes down into the earth rather than up like volcanoes we are familiar with like Vesuvius, Mt. Etna, Stromboli, Mt. St. Helens, Kilauea, etc.
Sun spots – we know what they are from science class. They are dark spots on the surface of the sun. Each spot has a corresponding polar spot on the other side of the sun. Sun spots release solar flares.
TEOTWAWKI – the end of the world as we know it.
Here we go again. It’s not Y2K this time, but Y12. Next year!
So what’s the big deal? Haven’t we had several end-of-the-world predictions in the past? And we’re still here.
So what makes 12/21/12 so different?
Besides it being the winter solstice of that year, more than one source/prophet/predictor pinpoints that date as a day of cataclysmic events. And others describe possible scenarios that science corroborates as probable.
