A vast majority of you have heard all kinds of things what will happen at the end of this year. More precisely: on the21. December. What or if anything will, I DO NOT know. Some of you who might be more interested into this subject can find almost an INFINITE number of pages related ONLY to this topic.
To be honest, till now I haven't visited ANY of those sites, but I bet, that almost as there are pages out there about this topic, so are the various events that potentially await us.
But I don't have to look, to get my own opinion what at least some of this pages "prophecize" and they ALL have a common denominator:
THE END of the WORLD as we know it!
May it be in the form of "ASCENSION" (as some Christians beleive), again others franticlly try to persuade themselvses and others, that it has to do something (end of a specific cycle - more info about that is avaliable elswhere) with theancient Mayan calendar..., just to name some few scenarios.
My opinion of all this is SIMPLE:
I DO NOT have it!
But I do know, that humanity has been NEVER before with such pace "racing" to its own downfall, UNLESS WE do not change something.
So this prophechy is not so unlike as others are. It has its foundation, but people take advantage of that, to "form" their version of the truth according their personal views or beliefs.
I have no problem with that, but I STRONGLY oppose the fact, that science got "cought" in the middle of battle, that is 'raging' betveen the 'believers' and the scepticts.
And I have a message for both opposing sites:
A) To use (pseudo)science for predicting such events does actually MORE harm and has the opposite effect as it should in first place.
B) By disputing those "things" with scientific methods as a primary tool to do so is a VERY narrow minded, limited point of view. If there is something out there we do not understand, that does not mean, that it does not exist. Too often we forget (at least I belive so), that science is worth only so much as our minds can comprehend it. And to reject something purely on the basis that science CAN not (yet) explain it, that DOES not mean, that at some point in the future things will be different and that displaying such behaviour is nothing more than pure arrogance and pride. Why? Because often it would be more than enough to say, that with our current level of evolution (or the level of our brain capabilities being used, that is just a fraction of that it is capable of - and we just started to ucover its true potential) we sometimes reach the boundries of our understanding. But rather than doing so and "back of" for the time, until our 'perspective' at looking at 'reality' broadens, we stick to the almost dogmatic idea, that if science (or better said our understanding of it) can not explain a particular phenomenon, then it simply DOES and CAN NOT EXIST.
Both viewpoints (not only the first one) are harmful and do a very good job to slow down our progress as one consequence with the other being maybe even more dangerous,that people simply DO NOT KNOW anymore WHAT and WHOM to believe.
BUT in spite of all this disputes, whatever may or may not happen, take this countdown at least as a wake up call, to change things (as long there still is time) you are are ABLE TO CHANGE and INFLUENCE (and there is no need to be a 'rocket scientist' in order to do so)!
