Observations and insights into the end times and the apocalypse

How do we know the world has not ended?

May 21st, 2011 · Uncategorized

I see all these news stories about how Camping’s prediction hasn’t come true e.g. “if you are reading this, then ” blah blah blah.

Anyway, I’m not sure how we would know if the world started ending it a different time zone, as we wouldn’t be able to contact those people.

I would say wait an extra few days to make sure we know that the whole world really hasn’t ended at all.



“And even if he’s wrong again and you’re still around on Oct. 22, relax. The Mayan apocalypse is just around the corner.” lol

An anonymous reader writes “Japanese scientists have spotted [0]two huge
holes on the sun’s magnetic field, and it appears there is some reason to
be concerned about. The holes, called coronal holes, are gateways for
solar material and gas to spill out into space, according to space.com.
The gaps in the sun’s magnetic field make a hole through its atmosphere,
letting gas out, NASA has said.”

2012 Movie Box Office

December 14th, 2009 · Uncategorized

Now that it’s all over, of course the end result is what matters… how did it perform at the box office?

According to Box Office Mojo – http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=2012.htm it did about $155M domestically and rather better in the worldwide release – almost $700M. As would be expected I suppose for a movie with worldwide repercussions.

What do you think? Should the movie have done better or flopped? Post comments below.

NASA Opposes 2012 and End of the World

November 13th, 2009 · Uncategorized

“Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012,” states NASA in a new FAQ web page set up for the occasion.


“Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists know of no threat associated with 2012.”


One question on the faq — “Q: How do NASA scientists feel about claims of pending doomsday?” hahaha

No way! Well at least we know NASA’s not planning anything. Maybe next ask Bin Laden?

Wall Street Journal 2012 Review

November 13th, 2009 · Uncategorized

Joe Morgenstern didn’t seem to think it was a great movie… too long mostly and formulaic. Too bad. Roland Emmerich’s other films were kind of epic and interesting, but apparently this one did not make the grade. I’ll still go see it eventually, or maybe wait until it’s on DVD and will probably enjoy it. But the length of the movie is a little troublesome. I always prefer a 90 minute movie. Still, John Cusack is always entertaining to watch, and you can’t go wrong with Woody!

2012 Doomsday Scenarios – The Mayan Calendar Seems to Predict the End of the World in 2012

September 28th, 2009 · Uncategorized

Yes it’s true that the Mayan Calendar ends in 2012. But wouldn’t they just start a new one? Or were they hoping that the Mayan civilization would last until 2012? Maybe some secret Mayan society that was just hanging on is about to lose it’s last member? Maybe it’s just a numerology thing and just a coincidence? About.com has got you covered with answers to these and all your other 2012 questions –


In an upcoming post we will share how we think the end of the world might have an effect on your daily life and how you can prepare to cope without the benefit of a comfy world to live in.

Death from the Skies – Some Light Reading

August 10th, 2009 · Uncategorized

Plait, an astronomer and author of the popular Web site badastronomy.com, presents in loving detail the many, many ways the human race could die, from temperature extremes and poisonous atmosphere to asteroid impacts and supernovae explosions. Such a state of destruction existed some 65 million years ago, when a giant meteoroid struck Earth, sending up so much flaming debris that the whole planet caught fire and the dinosaurs were wiped out. Solar flare activity could bring on another Ice Age. Worse yet would be a gamma ray burster, a collapsed star whose radiation would be comparable to detonating a one-megaton nuclear bomb over every square mile of the planet.

2012: Supernova from Asylum

August 8th, 2009 · Uncategorized

I heard Asylum was planning a sequel to their movie 2012: Doomsday. I didn’t know any details, nor did I watch the first movie, butit struck me as kind of funny Asylum would do a sequel to a movie in which the world has already ended.

So anyway, I was poking on their web site a few days ago and again today, and I just noticed this –http://www.theasylum.cc/product.php?id=161 I swear it was not there a couple days ago. This movie 2012: Supernova, doesn’t look like a sequel, so perhaps I was wrong about there being a sequel to 2012: Doomsday, it’s just another 2012 / apocolypse movie.

Still, imagine any other movie studio. Yes, sometimes you see two similar movies coming out around the same time. Not to get stuck on the disaster theme, but a made for TV movie Asteroid came out in 1997 and Deep Impact was released as a theatrical release in 1998. But these are competing studios. Wouldn’t Asylum be worried about cannibalizing their other 2012 movie by flooding the market with so many end of the world movies called 2012. I guess not!
