Just out of curiousity, what do you fellows believe is going to happen on the 21st of December which is coming up in like one week now? I mean, I know that nothing is really going to happen in regards to the "world ending" and all that crap, but I mean from a sociological point of view, what is going to happen in regards to all of the people who believe in this? Personally, I am actually a bit afraid. I think that it could be a dangerous day. Some of these people are absolutely insane, and they have huge stockpiles of firearms and aren't afraid to use them, believing that they are truly in danger. I imagine that we might see mass religious suicides and possibly a couple more whackos going on shooting rampages. I'll definitely be staying home that day.

I think it is going to be a day of big struggle.






I mean, there's probably work that needs to be done in the office and everyone including myself is in Christmas vacation mode.

For most people, not a dang thing is going to happen. Probably some bars will have funny 'end of the world' parties. And the day after that, I'll just go back to waiting for Christmas, like normal.

Hopefully the History Channel will rebroadcast its many hours of speculation before the big day. It's not likely to make very good repeat programming if the world survives.

 Sadly, yes.  I work with a few of them.  I pray that when they realize their erroneous beliefs, they'll be more open to authentic Christianity found in the Eastern Orthodox Church.

 As for myself, I'll probably start the day off with Fruity Pebbles and soy milk.  Smiley

This really bothers me: a local radio station did a "man on the street" type thing where they asked random people what they would do if it really were the end of the world. A couple of people said they'd spend more time with their families, but the rest said they'd steal, have lots of illicit sex, even kill someone they didn't like.

I wonder if they realize that what they're really saying is they'd be willing to go to the final judgment with blood and sin on their souls? Because the end of tje world, among other things, would be that, for each of us ...

(FWIW this interview took place the day before the CT shootings ... I'd like to believe some of those answers may have been different a day or so later ...)

You should try and go to Europe and Asia. The french are being overrun by doomsday preppers and new age followers, a chinese man has just stabbed 23 people(nobody died though). There have been panick scenes in Russia. It's crazy.

As far as i am concerned, state television is broadcasting a huge show to celebrate the end of the world, so it will probably just be an evening with me and my armchair.

I think that for the vast majority of folks, nothing will happen. However some tinfoil hat types will do something drastic, and other tin foil hat folks will point to it and say they were right. Also, those making money on this will either say "It was the end of our current thinking" or other such nebulous nonsense, while others will say that the date was incorrect and propose a new date.

Not true.  The sun only doesn't rise for 3 days at the Winter Solstice if you are above th Arctic Circle.  After that you'll get short days but there will still be sunrise and sunsets until Summer Solstice where the Sun doesn't set for 3 days.
