I RECENTLY ASKED A QUESTION ABOUT WHO THINKS THE WORLD WILL END ON 2012. THIS IS MY BASIS FOR THE QUESTION.
this is an essay i wrote for a speech i had to give in college, i have a real nice power point to go with it.please grade me (F-A)
December 21, 2012 is a day that many people are unaware of or just don’t care about. After watching the history channel and surfing the internet I have recently become aware of the subject myself and have overwhelmed my brain and computer with information pertaining to this subject. There is a lot of information on this subject so I will only mention a few predictions and state some facts. Nostradamus, the Mayans, Edgar Cayce, and NASA predict 2012 will either be a day never to be forgotten or even worse the end of the world.
Nostrodamus is the most famous prophet I would like to talk about. Nostradamus was born in 1503 in St. Remy de Provence and was primarily known as the profit of doom because of his predictions of destruction and death, it has been said he predicted the birth and rise of Hitler, the French revolution, September 11th, and the assassination of John F Kennedy; but the most important prediction in my mind is his prediction of the end of the world. The history channel states that when the 13th zodiac sign, Ophiuchus (between Scorpio and Sagittarius) aligns with the sun and the center of the galaxy “the knowledge of the trees in the garden of Eden will be released” according to one of Nostradamuss’ writings. Nostradamus had his own style; he wrote in quatrains, poems that were very cryptic and often unreadable. He had to do this because the church would exile him or kill him if they read his devilish predictions.
The Mayans were a civilization that resided in Mexico around 2600BC and are known to be very advanced for their time. The Mayans are also known for creating the most meticulous calendar ever; it is so precise it has been said it is 3 seconds off when predicting lunar and or solar eclipses; when used today. The Mayan calendar is actually a collection of calendars known as the Tzolk’in with 260 days divided up into 20 periods and 13 days. The Haab has 365 days and was used to predict solar anomalies; together they make a complex calendar that proves to be accurate. Their calendar system is further more divided with the long count calendar which was used to count days on a linear scale of decimals. This was also used to track time that had passed and is also known as the great cycle. The great cycle lasts for 5,125.36 years from beginning to the end. The Mayans believe the world has been created 5 times and destroyed 4; they also state the cycle we are currently in begun on August 11, 3114BC and ends on December 21, 2012. They too fear an astronomical catastrophe will occur on this day just like Nostradamus.
Edgar Cayce was born in March 18, 1877, and it’s been said he was one of the best psychics of the 20th century. He gave readings to people while in a trance; he would tell people if they had terminal illnesses, the right business moves to make, life choices, etc. and he also made predictions for the beginning and end of world war one and two and he even predicted the exact day of his own death; January 3, 1945, and he was right. Edgar Cayce also predicted that the world will loose its coastal city’s to floods around December, 2012 while the continents are being rearranged. Edgar Cayce was not always right though once he predicted that Atlantis would return in 1968 or 1969 and he was wrong; many of his believers were extremely disappointed when this happened.
NASA, or the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, is a very well paid organization that puts a lot of money into their technology for space exploration and studies of space. NASA states that extreme solar storms around 2012 will occur. These storms will hit the sun causing what is called sun spots and this could change the way all the people on earth live, all cell phones, satellite, and GPS systems may cease to work; this would cause chaos and confusion. There is much more from NASA they also state that the crossing of planet X or “Nubri” through our solar system will switch our planets axis making the North Pole the South Pole. This would be done by the immense amount of gravitational pull planet X has.
December 21, 2012 may prove to be an ordinary day or our worse nightmares may come true one thing is for sure we have been warned by many including Nostradamus and his prediction for 2012 or NASAs’ facts that our poles will be shifted due to solar cataclysms around 2012. Also one of the most advanced cultures, the Mayans with their extremely accurate calendar mark the end in 2012, and Edgar Cayce who made many predictions some correct and some incorrect. Whether or not the predictions mentioned will prove to be true only time will tell.
