figure 1: NostradumbassI survived doomsday, and all I got was an alcohol and party favor enhanced warm, cheery smile as friends, family and I discussed (in part) the idiots who bought into the Doomsday FUD scams.

Good job. I must borrow a term for such individuals:  Nostradumbass.

This has been the most anticlimactic event ever.

Let’s face it, the world is not going to end. Our society and species will only continue to devolve, with the rate of technological improvements inversely proportional to the level and momentum thereof.

One hundred years from now, long after sufficiently advanced technology has supplanted supreme being or deity based faith and/or belief systems as our popular, contemporary religions and mythology, people will still be captives and victims to the same characteristics of human nature and society as we have since forever. I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of “Doomsday” and the Doomsday-sayers.

 

So it’s five days until Doomsday, and I’m stuck asking:

What would Beavis do?

Well, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t let the world end without watching this.

 

 

Smoke em if ya got em. ;p

I just can’t keep my eyes off this stuff. The world is ending soon, verrry soon. Here’s the official Doomsday countdown clock on timeanddate.com.

If you ever wanted to do anything, you’d better get crackin’. No holds barred. This is for all the marbles.

On the other hand, before you go all out and do something rash, you may want to consider how many times the end has been wrongly predicted.

Even Harold Camping is sitting this one out.

In other related news, after erroneous predictions of world ending via planetary collision in August and/or September of 2012, some of the more flagrant Doomsday FUD mongers on youtube have now postponed Apocalypse until anywhere from 2014 to 2016. More time to extract money from rubes. (At least one citing improper translation of the Mayan calender.) LoLz!

Since I could not find any embeddable Theodoric of York Medieval Astronomer/Philosopher videos, I’ll leave you with this. It’s always been a favorite of mine.

There sure is a lot of FUD regarding alleged Planet Nibiru and doomsday. Around the web you’ll see all sorts of dire predictions. Some have stated that the end will come as early as August 17th, clear to the day both Nostradamus and the Mayan Calender supposedly predict Apocalypse, December 21, 2012.

I notice that most of them are selling things or have Paypal donation buttons. I wonder why they need the money if the world is ending?

At any rate, if someone knows exactly when and where we can all see this alleged planet, brown dwarf or whatever, please chime in the comments.  By that I mean real coordinates, not lame video of lens flare which seemingly appear in all different places and times in the sky.

Here’s what NASA has to say on the issue. Are there any “real” scientists who can debunk NASA?

The Science of Doomsday 2012

Published on Mar 19, 2012 by

NASA Scientist David Morrison discusses the rumors of a doomsday in December 2012 and shows how these claims are not supported by science. This updates Morrison’s earlier videos “The Truth About 2012” and “The Truth about Nibiru“.  Another good discussion is in the JPL video “12-21-2012 Just Another Day“.

For entertainment only.

Enjoy!
