We share the world with people who believe the world will end on Dec 21 this year because some ancient calendar predicted so. Thousands of New Age fanatics and doomsday believers already arrived in Cisternino and Bugarach to avoid the end of the world. They believe these two places are the only places to survive Armageddon and there will be special spaceships which will carry them off to a bright new world. Some of them believe Turkish village of Sirince is also a safe place. Lu Zhenghai, a Chinese man spent his £100,000 savings on a 70 ft by 50 ft vessel to escape doomsday. A man has built a luxurious underground bomb-proof shelter in California, just in case the Mayans’ predictions come true. The price of everything are now gone up in the so called apocalypseproof places. In a small village like Bugarach, you have to pay €500 for a bed in a barn.

Doomsday survival kits are available for doomsday warriors. The price ranges from $300 up to $4,000. Kits will give you survival knife, water purification tablets, non perishable food, first aid kit, flashlight, batteries, waterproof matches, lighter, thermal blankets, personal hygiene items, compass, whistle, tent etc.

Everything is so pathetic and hilarious.

By the way, is human brain shrinking?

    Nope! Just people believe in all sorts of crazy things. Remember the Hale Bopp comet and those suicide cults?

    It’s weird but seemingly harmless beliefs can sometimes manifest as dangerous ones based on hype.

    Let’s just say there are going to be some really stupid looking people on saturday.

    Oh if you want to have some fun? Go outside and leave some clothes arranged as if someone vanished and they fell to the ground. Try and gauge reactions…

    It never ceases to amaze me how people expect to survive the END of the WHOLE WORLD!!! with a supply of tins, guns and matches in a bunker. It’s as if they have a personal force field around their brains, preventing the ingress of reality.
    Personally I have no desire to live in a post apocalyptic world. No decent cheese and chocolate supplies, for one thing. Ring side seat for me thanks.

    People seem to baffled as to why this ancient numbering system had a finite span, “But why did their calender end?!!!1!1!!!!!ELEVENTY!!1!!!!”

    Because the way they calculated dates didn’t allow for an automatic reset every 12 months like ours does and there’s not been any Mayan’s about to write out a new one for quite some time now.

    What’s so hard about understanding that simple concept?

    Brains are probably not physically shrinking, but improved methods of indoctrination wielded by those in power (religious leaders, corrupt government officials, and multi-billionaire behind-the-scenes manipulators) have made it almost impossible to utilize effective individual brain power.

    Remember, when the world and everyone on it are smoldering ashes it will be the only accepted currency.

    Avicenna and charleschambers , The truth is, human brain is shrinking.
    ”.. even normal, apparently healthy human brains show the effects of aging, such as the buildup of amyloid-β plaque deposits and loss of neural connections, especially in regions linked to learning and memory. And previous studies of human brains have suggested that these brain regions, which include the frontal lobe and the hippocampus, are especially prone to shrinkage with age… Some regions shrank as much as 25% by 80 years of age. …the gray matter of the human frontal lobe shrank an average of about 14% between the age of 30 and 80, and the gray matter of the hippocampus about 13% over the same period. But shrinkage of white matter was even more severe: The white matter of the frontal lobe shrank about 24%, similar to the white matter volume decrease in most other brain regions measured.”

    freedom of thoughts belonging to any cast,creed or religion have no nation;not only communism even capitalism can not allow any freedom of speech,which also be treated as commodity for auction as well as integrity,perception and knowledge of man & woman.

    I would not criticise things I do not understand, Islam may not allow a person to adopt a child in a sense, as to adopt is to change the name of the child. A persons should keep the name of the farther, as it plays a very important part in a persons identity. So therefore a child a can be adopted but the childs surname must remain the same.

    The day is close aproaching where you will have no helper no protection, unless you are a believer.

    And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, He will cause him to enter Gardens beneath which rivers flow, and whoever turns back, He will chastise him with a painful chastisement.” [48:17]
    “The most common thing which leads people to Paradise is taqwa of Allah and good conduct, and the most common thing which leads people to the Hell Fire is the mouth and the private parts.” [at-Tirmidhi]

    You are here in this world only for a minuscule amount of time, and then you die that will be eternal, lets pray that you are guided, inshallah, as a heart of stone will remain a heart of stone without any guidance. The evil deeds you do and how you slander Islam, it is only you yourself who you hurt. We love our prophet (saw) any rubbish you say is not going to change that. YOU BELEIVE THAT YOU WILL NOT MEET YOUR MAKER, SURELY YOU ARE DECEIVING YOURSELF. YOU ARE A GREAT DECEIVER. A GOOD AND HONEST HUMAN BEING WOULD NOT DISRESPECT ANOTHER PERSONS RELIGION THE WAY YOU HAVE.
    YOU MUST HAVE A SICKNESS IN YOUR HEART TO HATE SO MUCH

    PLEASE STOP YOUR TREACEROUS WAYS AS IN THE END IT WILL EAT YOU UP INSIDE and you will BE THE LOSER

      It does not matter whether you think god exists or not it is not going to change anything, you did not come into being as a miracle with out any purpose. You are the creation of your creator, and currently living a purposless life. Also I read that you are a human rights activist, what kind of human rights activist mocks and ridicules people of a certain faith. I think maybe an anti human rights activist, you are only degrading yourself by what you do. Repent before it is too late, read about heaven and hell with an open heart, with understanding,as there will be no turning back when it is too late. THE END IS INEVITABLE YOU CAN DENY IT ALTHOUGH THAT WONT STOP IT HAPPENING

      1. Kevin

        You’re quite wrong. Human rights activists don’t mock people of faith…they’re humans, too.

        Atheists, that’s different. But you’re still wrong. We mock people of every faith. Yours is nothing special. Just another set of myths that allows someone else to tell you what clothes you can wear, what food you may eat, and excuses your terrible treatment of other “humans” (ie, women).

      2. abbeycadabra

        Um… do you have the slightest idea how in the wrong place you are to put forth a religious argument? nobody around here believes in your extremely angry and capricious imaginary friend in the sky.

    I’m laughing at the idea of the cultist on December 22nd, popping off to the ATM to withdraw some walking around money, and reading the receipt and saying, “Shit, is that all I’ve got left !?”

    I’m content to just laugh at them — and to be jealous of the good fortune of those places where they’re making a killing off of morons who have never seen a calendar turn to a new date.

    If only you but knew, I feel a great sadness for these people, by denying the truth it is only yourselves who you harm. People believe themselves to be civilised and intellectuals, how can a person with any intelligents explain their existence as purposeless. Your eyes with which you read with, your fingers with which you type with, every single part of your being has been designed uniquely by a maker, your creator. It is you whom will choose to believe or disbelieve.
