Re: Dec. 21st, 2012
Please tell me we aren't being serious here? If the world was going to end due to bad weather, that bad weather would already have started. It's December, and I have the windows open, and I live in the northern part of the United States. Because I am Atheist that means I can rule out any sort of religious "end of times" talk right away. The only thing I can even remotely be open to would be some sort of activity by our Sun being so harsh that it knocks out all the satellites from above. Rendering all of humanity to sudden chaos due to all our computers, electricity, and way of life being quietly obliterated by the Sun 149 million km away.
The greatest threat wouldn't make a sound, or even allow you to even realize what, or who did anything. It's not a bomb, earthquake, or flood. It's energy so strong that it completely puts humanity in to a state of panic, and chaos. We are aware of the sun, and realize it's power, but not often enough do we realize the potential, "rare" danger of being destroyed by it. Obviously this kind of event it highly unlikely to happen due to the odds, but it's about the only thing that makes me think how lucky we are. However, December 21st is just 4 days before Christmas to me, and people will be doing what they do just like always.
