I just watched an episode of Jesse Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory about the 2012 hoax. Now, I’m a pretty factually-minded, educated person, and there has to be a lot of evidence before I’ll believe something, but that show scared me. Yes, I’m aware that that was probably its intent, however, some of the things they showed on there seemed pretty legit. The show focused on the most scientific aspect of the 2012 hoax, the danger to the Earth’s power grid from a giant solar flare. It did not even mention the other obvious fallacies surrounding the 2012 thing, such as Nibiru, magnetic pole reversal, asteroid impact, etc. In fact, it didn’t even talk about the whole Maya connection that much; they just mentioned it in passing. The show claimed that in the year 2012, a large solar flare is going to be emitted from the sun, which will in turn strike the Earth, possibly getting through the magnetosphere via the large hole they’ve recently discovered in it, and either massively shut down the Earth’s power grid, causing world-wide chaos, or have more sinister consequences such as tidal waves, wildfires, etc. The show also claimed, and displayed evidence supporting their claims, that the government and many private individuals are building secret “2012 bunkers” so that the rich and powerful can hide from whatever happens in 2012, leaving the rest of us to fend for ourselves. Now, I know that a show called Conspiracy Theory probably isn’t all that factual, but what they showed seemed pretty real. They talked to people from NASA and the government, and even went inside a couple of these bunkers. Also, they claimed that the largest of the bunkers is currently being constructed underneath the Denver airport. They even went there and showed a lot of evidence supporting that claim. I’m not extremely concerned about 2012, but seeing things like this does scare me a little, I’ll admit. I’ve read a lot of other things on NASA and other credible scientific websites claiming that nothing major is going to happen in 2012, even from a solar flare, but still, I have to wonder, if, as the show claimed, the government knew it wasn’t prepared to deal with such a catastrophe, would they really let people know that? Doesn’t hiding away in a hole and letting things work themselves out, then coming out when it’s safe for them sound exactly like the sort of cowardly thing they’d do? So, what’s your opinion? You can probably find this particular episode of Conspiracy Theory on Youtube if you want to see exactly what I’m talking about.
I know it’s a long question. Sorry. I just wanted to present all the facts in the hopes of getting the most accurate answer.
As I said, this part of the hoax isn’t about the Mayas. It’s about a particularly large solar flare striking the Earth and causing worldwide technology breakdown.
I didn’t say I was giving in to it. I said I wondered if there was any way it could possibly be true. I do not believe any of the 2012 hoaxes such as some rogue planet or asteroid hitting us, magnetic pole reversal, or that the Mayas predicted the end of the world. But when you’re presented with visual proof that the government is building bunkers and preparing just in case something does happen in 2012, it kind of makes you wonder if there isn’t some truth to the whole solar flare thing. You know, there was a massive flare that hit the Earth in 1859. Back then, there was nothing for it to disrupt really, but what would happen today if such a thing were to repeat itself?
OK nevermind. Just did a bit more research. Here’s a site that explains the whole thing. Sorry to have even been worried about this.
