Is there something going to happen in 2012 astronomically in our skies? are there any legitimate astronomers who can through some lights on 2012 doomsday theories from the point of view of stars and galaxy?
There are many such questions which needs to be answered. I tried to dig for few sources which have explained the overall results with advanced charting system of the movement of the stars and planets.
First one is http://www.visualastronomy.com/2009/01/so-tired-of-2012-hype.html which actually explains the things in understandable manner. Such astronomy for 2012 events does justice to some extent.
Kelly Whitt has written a piece of article titled Astronomy and December 21, 2012, you can read the complete article here http://stargazing.suite101.com/article.cfm/the_night_sky_on_december_21_2012
What I am not sure about is, if the above writers are astronomers or not. But the point they make is that 2012 doomsday theories do not have substance in them from the factual science of astronomy. I will try to look at the several other sources and compile one version.
The astronomy is in advanced stages and there are good equipments available which can track almost all the bodies in skies. There are many amateur groups which are active in the field. The debate in circle is that 2012 Dec 21, night or day sky does not reveal anything which is unusual. In the absence of factual terms, the doomsday theorists have the bad science to their credit. Either they must be knowing well if they are seeing something which is not visible to thousands of the telescopes in the world. No astronomer reported to sight the planet niburu so far. The planet niburu seems to have special likings to doomsday experts. It has evaded the sight of telescopes so far.
Many people have very different ideas about world of 2012. And due to several theories being circulated in pseudo-media, the curiosity has been increased to a level of frenzy. Many people are interested to know about world of 2012.
In America, the elections would be held in 2012 and Sarah Palin is expected to be one of the most prominent and celebrated name to be heard during the election. US is preparing to go to election and there is no uneasiness in political circles due to any unconfirmed theories of end-of-the-world.
Fiji would start to revise its constitution in 2012. The new constitution would be pro-citizens and would involve many electoral reforms. Who is afraid of 2012 theories, None!!!
Samsung aims to be No.2 PC maker by 2012. Samsung prepares its plans to be prominent leader in the technology market and its products are making right waves. Is Samsung afraid of 2012 theories? No!!!!
Sony has set release date for new Spider Man movie in July 3rd, 2012. The new movie is called Spider Man Reboot and it will be delivered in 3D. No, Sony is not scared of 2012 hype. There is no need to be.
Nissan to launch Electric Cars in ChristChurch city in 2012. The city and Renault-Nissan has joined hands to become the alliance and the city would be first to have electric cars. Is there a sign of panic due to 2012 theories. Nah!!! and None.
China’s new Rail system would be fully functional by 2012. There are grand plans which are going in operation. Earlier deadline was 2020 but the work has been accelerated now to complete it by 2012. Nobody is scared due to 2012 predictions.
Any sensible head will get the picture of World 2012 with these planned events. World is more stable politically than it was in last decade or few years before. President Obama has helped to make the world more peaceful and his efforts are showing good results. World leaders are not talking about conflicts and other problems. There are no natural events either expected to ruin the world. World has started to recover from economic problems. Many large companies are having grand plans to expand the business from one country to another.
In the wake of such well planned movements, there is no space left for any doomsday theory to come true. It all started with Movie on 2012 and now doomsday experts are not making any noises for long time now. Bad salesmen have started to look for another doomsday theories which can be cashed upon.
The world of 2012 will be more stable and will have many technology marvels released. There would be new phones, devices, new books, new movies and many success stories of the heroes in many fields.
So stay cool and there is nothing sort of doomsday which is going to happen.
2012 End of the World. How does it sound? It may sound little catchy and people get excited with the feelings that something is going to happen in 2012. Well, It is the case of more over curiosity than planning to save humanity per say. The world is full of many such generated phenomenons and thousands of the people search over the internet to find something which is out of the world news. It may help us to find something to read interesting but beyond that 2012 holds no significance if end of the world is concerned.
Many so called experts are going to be fairly disappointed because world is not going end. This blog has several posts to read on this subject where the reasons have been explained.
The hype over the 2012 seems to be almost over with movie release and people have seen the movie by now. Movie cashed on the hype. Suddenly the voices of experts are silent and there is no more buzz coming from the self-proclaimed experts on Mayan Calendar.
There may be logical reasons for few events in 2012 but largely end-of-the-world is beyond reasons. Those know-all experts are not generating enough news now. Mainstream media has learnt to ignore the gimmicks of desperate sales men who want to scare the people to buy survival goods especially planned for 2012.
There are many people horsing their ideas and predicting that weird things are going to happen. One needs to understand the theme for 2012. 2012 imagination is one thing and the weird events are another. Most of so called weird predictions are just imagination of few twisted minds.
From logical point of view which can be thought there are some pre-announced dates and events which are normal and are going to happen in 2012.
London Olympics will be held in 2012 and the preparations are in full swing. London is preparing itself for this mega event which will give it large chunk of business.
Other big event that may happen is the possibility of another summit on the lines of Copenhagen Summit this year. The reason is Kyoto protocol is expiring in 2012. Before Dec 2012, a new protocol will be presented before the world.
US is going to have presidential elections in 2012. Probable and would-be leaders are preparing themselves for the elections. There is movement in this direction and in may 2012, Mr. Obama can be elected again or there may be new president.
The logical world has no serious plans to focus on doomsday theories which are being circulated all over the world. There is nothing to worry as we see it from now.
The human history has shown that 3 years are not very big time to notice sizable changes on the timelines. There are no reasons to fear. Let people run wild imaginations to the horizons. 2012 is going to look better with newer gadgets and the better world to live in.
Chinese rules do not allow more than 20 movies from offshore market to be displayed in the country. Movie 2012 become top earner in Chinese market as well. It has set new record of ticket sales there in china.
Another movie Avatar is supposed to hit cinema halls in China on January 4th 2010.
A big question is that how and why a well hyped movie can also become top earner in very short span of time. The movie is hollow and does not have good material to back it up. That is what critics think. The movie has surprised not only the critics but trade gurus as well. Movie is going good and still public is well interested in it. The movie is still being awaited in many countries. The DVD and home edition is going make another round of good sale volumes all over the world.
Here are some genuine business ideas for entertainment industry which can be built around 2012 theme.
1. 2012 Part III is going to be released in Year 2012. Because it is just wild guess that 2012 Part 2 will be released some where around 2011.
2. 2012 World Tour by several pop/rock/musical stars
3. 2012 Home Videos with Survival Kits
4. 2012 Special Albums by several Musical Stars
6. 2012 Special membership by Casinos.
7. 2012 Special membership at strip clubs.
9. 2012 can be declared as Happy Year for drinking wines and beer.
10. A rock star may name himself ”2012 Survivor” to tap on the theme of 2012.
11. 2012 Special recreational sports may theme in WWE and RAW sports
12. 2012 Religious documentary claiming that Messiah is on the way to save you.
13. 2012 Specific Themes in Opera and musicals
14. Broadway Shows focusing on 2012
15. 2012 Magic Shows.
16. Toys, Books from Disney and other leading brands on the themes of 2012.
More Ideas to come and the above are not limited to the list.
Did Nostradamus say something about 2012?
While I was going over search engines and a book with me to find out if Nostradamus ever said anything about 2012. Here is re-run from the people who are buzzing with doomsday theories.
One guy claims that Nostradamus predicted WWIII in 2012. Come on, two things can not be true. Either it would be doomsday or WWIII if it has to be true. Looking at political preparations for 2012, US seem to be going on the track with its political leadership planning for 2012 campaign. World leaders are no fools and the WWIII is not going to happen ever, that’s what I think.
Another wonderful man discovered a lost book by Nostradamus and he says it has 2012 date written with letters. There can not be more foolish than this. People generate coffee-home news and discover many books when they are drunk. So no surprises and there is no proof that there was any book lost. No credible source to this claim.
Many people and experts falsely claimed over the last year that Nostradamus’s a particular prediction is going to be true. So called experts failed to read the book properly and the same people are claiming that Nostradamus told so already.
Nostradamus needs to be spared and let the scholar rest in peace. Several experts have made good fortune by writing books about his books. It is great idea for them to make money. For them Nostradamus theories for 2012, hold good commercial value which can be exploited.
On serious note, Nostradamus was genius and he only could understand or express what he is trying to tell actually. After him, several people interpret the words as it suits them. So no surprises even this time from Nostradamus, and there are no reasons to link theories.
A grand movie like 2012 and the talks in Copenhagen, do no have anything in common except climate. It was not expected like this. The movie got dismissal from the leaders of the world and there is no influence of this movie in talks in Copenhagen.
A powerful medium such as cinema needs to have some influence and inspire the actions. But unlike Day After Tomorrow, this movie does not have any value beyond silver screen.
Movie missed the chance to make an impact and it just being portrayed as just the piece of non-sense fiction which has no science in it.
Lets see if something sensible comes out from the talks of Climate summit at Copenhagen 2009.
I have been scanning the news sources for this week but could not find much of content being generated as it was before movie came out. Many people have started to cast the doubts on the Maya calendar and its hype as generated in media.
Was Maya Calendar a creation of few marketing heads at media houses? Looks like so. Why so called experts are silent after the movie. Their silence is really enigmatic and chilling.
Movie did not excite people who were waiting to see something extra-ordinary. Movie was bad attempt at explaining the fiction and it lands in the category of worst science movies ever made.
There is no interest for now in Doomsday theories. All eyes are set on London 2012 Olympic games. There is good new coverage for the biggest games. World seems like to have gotten over the rotten science of 2012 movie.
Someone like Michael Moore is needed badly to blast the theories of doomsday in 2012. Michael Moore needs to pickup this theme and produce something sensible.
The popular song of the time till 2012 will remain which movie created. It makes no sense to many what NASA says. People are busy with cooking the theories. There are many groups which are showing great interest in watching the sky with telescope. None of them report any sighting of star X. More theories are awaited. It is surprising to see why David Icke is silent on this subject. I hope he is going to bring most lunatic theory for 2012 and its impossible doomsday.
There are many self-proclaimed experts claiming to know everything. None of them have background in science. Most of them are just interested heads or have business interests in selling the books, goods and what not.
You ask them anything they will create it and come up with more bizarre theories. Almost all those theories are based upon disconnected facts and hold no ground if presented to scientific community.
So!!!!!, Please do not take these theories seriously. Life is beautiful and it will remain post 2012 also. Read those stories and laugh off on their idiotic thoughts. 2012 theories are no more than bad jokes which have been cooked badly.
A sensible theory is yet to be seen which must come from credible sources. Serious researcher needs to produce something convincing or debunking the theories.
