They made a movie about the world ending in 2012
10 July 2009
who ever came up with the world ending in 2012?
Very interesting teaser!
Only they didn't say it ENDED, per se... but that the world is overturned, and a new order emerges.
The Aztec calender "end" famously coincided with the arrival of Cortez... a fact he used to his advantage.
Also, the demise of the city of Copan also coincided with Mayan calendar end period.
But with both of these historians cite the effect of self fullfilling prophesy... An army fully believing in the FATE of their destruction is unlikely to fight very effectively.
A populace convinced that their culture shall fall is susceptible to someone organizing an attack at that specific time.
And as we have leanred from the Rapture Right in the past 8 years...
Folks who BELIEVE the rapture is right around the bend do not PLAN for a raptureless future...
Economies and cultures can crash from nothing more than the belief that a crash is inevitable.
But the folks making this movie... I am sure they have residual and merchandising deals that have contract terms running well beyond 2012.
The apocalytics can always make a good buck BANKING on the apocalyse not occuring.
Roland Emmerich (and his oft-cohort Dean Devlin) is perhaps the only filmmaker I would consider honoring over Michael Bay for the worst filmmaker of my lifetime award. This looks and sounds like the kind of shit he loves to make.
Looking at my retirement account, if it ends in 2012 I may just have enough money to carry me that far... otherwise, maybe not. So I'm in favor of 2012.
Ah, well. At least I have a fairly large penis.
Google it and you'll find that there's a lot of armageddon fantasies surrounding that year. The really funny part is how many "facts" they've amassed to bolster their belief that it will really be the end of the world. You wouldn't think that so many people would look forward to the idea, but a lot of people seem to!
they had to cast Woody Harrelson :yuck:
Well, on the bright side and fortunately for us, they didn't cast Sean Penn.
It is the Annunaki. Disclosure is at hand...
It is the Serponites. Disclosure is at hand...
