WE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!
 
So, what do you all think about the mayan thing about 12-21-12?

Re: WE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!
 
Sounds like someone needs to do some research.

I dont buy into the mayan thing at all. But i know that a lot of people are talking about it.

We'll all die when the lord Jesus takes us.
Not when a false prophet says.
Praise him.

As long as he has the good sense to wait til I've finished my beer, I guess I can tag along.

A capital G is usually associated with that particular diety, no? Or is it only the heathen that may be called out for spelling errors?

Re: WE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!
 
I have the perfect theory about why the Mayans say the world will end this year. Ok, so it was like a super long time ago and they were making their calenders and they worked for like years and years on them, finally the guys got so sick of it and one of them said "lets just say that this is when the world ends and we can quit wasting our time making these calenders" the others all thought that it was a good idea and they stopped making calenders and made a prophecy about the world ending. Find me one better theory and maybe I will believe that instead.

The Mayans made no prediction on the end of man. The fact is, the last known calendar they made ended on 12/21/12. So everyone can relax. R

Yes, we're all gonna die.

Just not at the same time.

Truth.

12/21/12 is simply when the Mayan calendar cycle ends and starts over. It'll be like December turning over to January... no big deal.

Just so my new drums get here before then. I wanna go out playing my new Stage Customs, looking good and rocking out :)

Well, I don't know about the whole end-of-the-world thing, but it would certainly solve a lot of problems, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed ...

Lol. Yes, the planet that doesn't exist.

Re: WE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!
 
I think there is a pretty obvious explanation here that everyone is forgetting about. (or never knew)

I believe that this date (date and year) and not just year that Neil Peart was alluding to in
"2112". So there is really nothing at all to fear as this is simply the date that the elder race of man will return, to claim the home, where they belong. They are also home to tear the temples down (that might piss off smokestack) and they are home to change.

I'll bet my 47 Radio King to your whatever,that we'll still be posting here on 12/22/12,and there after.And that's a serious bet....any takers?I also predict that Sticks in one of his pseudonims,will be back,and with a still newer kit.....and be banned again.That guy's like the Chuck Norris of drum forums.:)

All hail Lord Xenu!

Why, oh why does a Christian member decide to permeate this thread with his nonsense? I have no issue with people holding that view but I don't want to hear it. It's not like I go on and on about my hard Atheism at every possible juncture.

There was no disaster when the last calendar changed in the 17th Century. This 'Mayan Prophecy' is totally bull. I would use stronger language to describe it but the forum does not permit it.

It's a pretty good bet. If you lose, you won't have to pay up.

The mayans couldnt predict their own end so why are we supposed to believe they predicted ours?

I sir,...am with you,and agree this should be a forum of secular interests only.

The end is near......the end is near..........yeah and so's Christmas.:)

Yeah, it could be argued that their track record on the prophesy front is somewhat lacking.

So you guys say my 2013 Mayan calendar I bought earlier this year isn't valid?
Maybe it's a fake then?
That's a bummer, it has nice pictures! So I should return it as long as I and the guy
who sold it to me are still alive it seems!!

If Christians are not allowed to post "nonsense", then Atheism and secularism is present by default. Besides, I don't really see anyone playing holier than thou on this forum.

I'm just hoping the Justin Bieber calendars aren't for sale as long as the Mayan ones were...

I think we all did die a little bit today when 20 kids were slaughtered in Newtown, CT.

Nonsense is saying you know for sure that which is unknowable.

You mean:

Isn't an inappropriate religious comment on a thread? This is a secular forum. It is written in the rules. I'm not going around telling people that there is no God, although that is my personal conviction. To do so is damned rude, arrogant and demeans the intelligence of the other people here.

Zephyr, in terms of 'nonsense' I didn't mean his Christian beliefs, I meant the arrogance to assume that his view precedes all others. I'll admit that my wording was not exactly choice.

Secularism and Atheism are different things. Secularism prevents religion from influencing the agenda or laws of the body in which it is used, Atheism denies the existence of a deity.
