2012 & Asian Carp



In the early 70’s catfish farmers in Mississippi and Arkansas brought in the Asian Carp to help filter their ponds. The Floods of 1993 came and the rest is history. The Asian Carp has now spread and infested many river systems in the US and will soon enter the Great Lakes and Canada.

Asian carp are extremely problematic because of their rapid growth rate. They soon get too large for any predators and go relatively unchecked eating half their body weight in a given day. Because they are filter feeders they attack the food chain from the bottom meaning that they consume the plankton and small fish which are the food of the larger fish. The end result is the destruction of river ecosystems wherever they go.

So how does the Asian Carp relate to 2012 and the Apocalypse. Well let us first think about man. The world population will soon reach 7 billion probably sometime before 2012. Similar to the Asian Carp, man has no predators and he destroys ecosystems wherever they go. Mankind is also gluttonous and greedy.

Man is to the world what the Asian Carp is to the river systems of America. This is just another thing to think about as we approach December 21, 2012.

Swine Flu Making the Jump to Birds


View Larger Map






If pigs could fly there would be barn yards in the sky. Who would have ever thought it possible but just yesterday it happened? Pigs can fly or rather the nasty flu they carry can now fly on the wings of birds they infect.

With the recent development, we are all in trouble. It will not be long when the wild migratory bird population gets infected as well and starts spreading the swine flu. But wait it gets better. Scientists are saying that soon the Swine Flu which is a hybrid of the Human Flu and Old Swine Flu will join forces so to speak with the very lethal Avian Flu.

Just remember these 3 simple facts.

1) The Swine Flu is very contagious and easily spread but the survival rate is very high. Only around 8% of the people infected die.
2) The Avian Flu is very lethal meaning that if you get it is about an 80% chance of mortality. However Avian Flu is not as contagious and less easily spread.
3) More people die every year from the Human Flu than the Swine Flu and Avian Flu combined.

Since the news Swine Flu has already made the jump to human, a new “Super Flu” combining Human, Swine, and Avian DNA be not long off.

May be December 21, 2012 will bring about a pandemic that will kill billions.

Excerpts from


Chile said Friday that tests show swine flu has jumped to birds, opening a new chapter in the global epidemic.

Top flu and animal-health experts with the United Nations in Rome and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were monitoring the situation, but said the infected turkeys have suffered only mild effects, easing concern about a potentially dangerous development.




So far, the virus — a mixture of human, pig and bird genes — has proved to be very contagious but no more deadly than common seasonal flu. However, virus experts fear a more dangerous and easily transmitted strain could emerge if it combines again with avian flu, which is far more deadly but tougher to pass along.

Vatican City Bunker


View Larger Map


There are rumors of a Vatican City Bunker. No one knows for sure if the bunker really exists but there is probably something beneath Vatican City. Since the Vatican is a state within Rome, it is safe to assume that the catacombs Rome catacombs must also run under the Vatican. And it is not out of the realm of possibility that the people running operations at Vatican somewhere along the way took what was beneath them and converted it into a fortified structure to protect the Pope and his people in a time of crisis.
People all over the world build shelters underneath or next to their homes. Why would the most powerful religious figure in the world not have a shelter as well?

Besides if there was a secret underground bunker beneath the Vatican, would they really advertise it to the World?

Perhaps you've been to Rome. You've probably seen the Coliseum, the Forum, a dozen or so churches, and the Vatican.
Well, if so, you've only scratched the surface.

Underground, beneath the Coliseum lies a rabbit-warren of rooms where the death defying spectacles were prepared. Beneath that, archaeologists have excavated the skulls of tigers, giraffes, bears, and other animals used in the shows.

And those churches you've visited for their renaissance art most likely harbor pagan secrets below their floors as well.





http://www.articlepool.com/exploring+underground+rome-76755


Rome is a fascinating adventure waiting for individuals and families to experience all the wonderments that are all around, however, many people do not realize that there are many treasures to be found in underground Rome as well.

For an unusual and exciting tour, underground Rome has many attractions that many do not ever get the chance to embrace. With Rome Tour you will be able to experience underground Rome with your own personal tour guide so you can enjoy all there is to see while hearing all the tales and history of the various treasures lying underneath the ancient city of Rome.

The Roman Coliseum is a major attraction for visitors to Rome, but did you know under the Coliseum are various rooms where the animals and even slaves were kept before they were sent above for their daring battles. Skulls of various animals have been discovered that has allowed visitors to visualize the death defying battles once you learn the skulls included tigers, bears, and even giraffes. As you travel through the various underground rooms, you will be able to feel the atmosphere of those about to do battle in the arena, as your private tour guide walks you through the history.

Even underneath many of the churches of Rome are hidden rooms that have held secrets of the past for centuries. Underneath the Basilica of San Clemente, you will find two levels of secrets. The first one will embrace a plan for the creation of a basilica during the 4th century and the next level is a building that was created in the 1st century.

All over Rome, there are many such hidden treasures. Instead of demolishing the older buildings throughout the centuries, other buildings were placed on top of the older ones building Rome up instead of out. There are centuries of hidden secrets in many homes, churches, and other buildings all across Rome due to this astonishing feat. Not all of the treasures have been found and many are not open to the public.

A few other underground places to visit include the Crypta Balbi which will allow you to see the various layer of the history of Rome and learn how all of this came to be. You can even visit the Museo Nazionale Romano to learn about the various layers you encounter and the history hidden inside.

St. Peter’s Basilica may be the most popular underground attraction. Underneath the Vatican there is an entire city, however, excavation of many of the treasures may never be discovered as the authorities of the Vatican are watching closely. It is believed that Saint Peter’s tomb is home beneath the basilica.

The Catacombs on the Appian Way is an underground cemetery that draws quite a bit of attention from visitors as well.

Remember, if you truly wish to embrace underground Rome, it is in your best interest to hire a personal tour guide that can provide you with an in-depth tour without standing in the long lines. Explore the history of Rome from beneath the ground up. It will surely be an adventure of a lifetime.

Reader's Digest Bankruptcy





The recent filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection by Reader’s Digest is another sign that print media is dying and probably for good. Besides who needs print media when we have the internet. We get everything we need to know from the internet. Who needs to mess with a magazine or newspaper when we can just power on our laptops and bam everything we need is right there. It is not hard to see that one day soon everything we read on paper will be read on our computer screens via the internet.

That is exactly the problem. We have become too reliant on the internet for our information. The ease and convenience of the internet has made it so successful and so closely tied to our daily lives.

Hypothetically let’s say a virus that can’t be stopped or a group of people bring down the internet. You are probably thinking that will never happen and I am being ridiculous.

Well in 2007 that very thing did happen in the Union of Myanmar also known as Burma. The military junta cut off internet access to the entire county in an attempt to stop news and images of the atrocities from reaching the rest of the world. If Myanmar, a country of roughly 60 million can be cut off from the rest of the world then why is it not possible for internet shut down to happen on a global scale? Think about it. It is possible.

This is just another thing to think about as we approach December 2012. May be the internet will crash leaving the world in the dark. Where will we be then?

Myanmar Internet Shut Down, But We Can Still Watch From Space
from the it's-a-small-world dept


As previously reported, the pro-democracy rallies in Myanmar have been closely covered by regular reports coming out of the embattled nation via cellphone, email and even YouTube. The government's attempts to try and pollute the web with their own propaganda must not have worked, since on Friday morning, the government shut off Internet access, cut phone lines and confiscated mobile phones in an attempt to control the outflow of information about the rallies. Though this may have slowed reports, it's very difficult for the government to completely clamp down, so some news reports are still getting out through mobile phones and a few satellite uplinks to the Internet. Even if the junta is able to completely shut things down, events can still be monitored from satellites, which are providing evidence of potential human rights abuses conducted by the government. Now that its next actions are being played out under a vigilant global eye, hopefully Myanmar officials will make the right choices in the coming days.

District 9






The movie starts off 28 years in the past as a documentary style series of interviews explaining the stranding and later quarantine of an extra-terrestrial work force in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The movie then flash forwards to present day where the main character Wikus (Sharlto Copely) is put in charge of moving the burgeoning alien population now 1.8 million to District 10. In the process he accidentally activates an alien device, which infects him and causes his body to mutate. This mutation allows him to operate the alien weaponry. Before his company MNU is able to extract his DNA, Wikus escapes to the only place he can, District 9.

There he befriends an Alien by the name of Chris Johnson. Johnson and Wikus make a deal. Wikus will help Johnson break into the MNU to steal the fuel needed to power the stranded alien spaceship so Johnson and his people can return home. In return Johnson promises to fix Wikus’ DNA so that he can become human again.

For what happens next, just go and see the movie. Don’t worry about wasting your money because District 9 was number 1 at the Box Office according to the New York Times and was produced by Peter Jackson.

Autism and Vaccines: 2012





Do vaccines cause Autism? No one knows for sure but the people from the Autism Research Institute seem to think so. They are not calling for the total outright ban of vaccines rather they are suggesting that vaccines should not be given the “Sacred Cow” status and their use by the medical establishment needs to be re-evaluated.

The article below on Genetics, Autism and Priorities shows that proper nutrition and food supplementation through the use of vitamins has probably done more to prevent diseases and certain medical conditions than vaccines. It also suggests that the medical establishment has been too liberal with the use of vaccines and in many cases, less would be more than adequate.

The people at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) feel differently. They state that there is no evidence that MMR Vaccine (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) causes Autism and that proponents of the Autism Vaccine Link are simply providing misinformation and unnecessary fear to the public.

In any case one fact remains, the rate of Autism has increased. In the 1970’s one out of every 10,000 kids developed Autism where as today it is one out of every 150 children. How do we explain this dramatic increase? Also what about other diseases such as Gulf War Syndrome? Many are suggesting that the Anthrax Vaccine could be the cause. Something is going on. This is just another thing to ponder as we approach December 21, 2012.

Ponyo: Review and Preview













Having seen the Japanese version of Ponyo (Gake no ue no Ponyo) and Hayao Miyazaki’s other films such as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, this U.S. release will be a must see for the entire family. Besides the visually stunning animation, all of Miyazaki’s films come with a powerful message of protecting and preserving the environment.





Wiki-


Ponyo (崖の上のポニョ, Gake no Ue no Ponyo?, literally "Ponyo on the Cliff") is a 2008 Japanese animated film by Studio Ghibli, written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. It is Miyazaki's eighth film for Ghibli, and his tenth overall. The plot centers on a goldfish named Ponyo who befriends a five-year-old human boy Sōsuke and wants to become a human girl.

The film has won several awards, including the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year.[3] It was released in Japan on July 19, 2008 and August 14, 2009 in the US and Canada.[4


More on Hayao Miyazaki-


Hayao Miyazaki (宮崎 駿, Miyazaki Hayao?, born January 5, 1941 in Tokyo, Japan) is a prominent filmmaker of many popular animated feature films. He is also a co-founder of Studio Ghibli, an animation studio and production company.

He remained largely unknown to the West, outside of animation communities, until Miramax released his 1997 Princess Mononoke. By that time, his films had already enjoyed both commercial and critical success in Japan and abroad. For instance, Princess Mononoke was the highest-grossing film in Japan until Titanic (1997) came out a few months later, and the first animated film to win Picture of the Year at the Japanese Academy Awards. His later film, Spirited Away, had that distinction as well, and was the first anime film to win an Academy Award, topping Titanic in the Japanese box office. Howl's Moving Castle was also nominated but did not receive the award.


Miyazaki's films often incorporate recurrent themes, such as humanity's relationship to nature and technology, and the difficulty of maintaining a pacifist ethic. Reflecting Miyazaki's feminism, the protagonists of his films are often strong, independent girls or young women; the villains, when present, are often morally ambiguous characters with redeeming qualities.

Miyazaki's films have generally been financially successful, and this success has invited comparisons with American animator Walt Disney. In 2006, Time Magazine voted Miyazaki one of the most influential Asians of the past 60 years.[1] The previous year, in 2005, he was named one of the Time 100 Most Influential People.[2]

Anime directed by Miyazaki that have won the Animage Anime Grand Prix award have been Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind in 1984, Castle in the Sky in 1986, My Neighbor Totoro in 1988, and Kiki's Delivery Service in 1989.

Terra-Cotta Warriors for 2012




Emperor Chin was a cruel murdering tyrant who had done many horrible things throughout his reign. He created this Terra-Cotta Army of thousands to protect him in the after life. Isn’t it funny, how the very powerful people are also very insecure and paranoid? This is just something to think about as we approach 2012.


Wiki -

The Terracotta Army (traditional Chinese: 兵馬俑; simplified Chinese: 兵马俑; pinyin: bīngmǎ yǒng; literally "soldier and horse funerary statues") are the Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses of Qin Shi Huang the First Emperor of China. The terracotta figures, dating from 210 BCE, were discovered in 1974 by some local farmers near Xi'an, Shaanxi province, China near the Mausouleum of the First Qin Emperor. (Chinese: 秦始皇陵; pinyin: Qín Shǐhuáng Líng). The figures vary in height (183–195 cm - 6ft–6ft 5in), according to their role, the tallest being the generals. The figures include strong warriors, chariots, horses, officials, acrobats, strongmen, and musicians. Current estimates are that in the three pits containing the Terracotta Army there were over 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses, the majority of which are still buried in the pits.[1]

Donald Duck a Nazi?




Donald Duck a Nazi? How can that be? Well it is not true. In the 1940’s Disney produced this anti-Nazi cartoon. In it, Donald finds himself in Nazi Germany and is forced to work in an artillery factory. He eventually wakes up to realize that it was all a bad dream.

The constant images of swastikas and Donald saluting Adolf Hitler caused this cartoon to be banned by Disney forever.

Inglorious Bastards: Preview and Review







The upcoming release of the Inglorious Bastards starring Brad Pitt is actually a remake of the 1978 Italian Film Quel maledetto treno blindato (literally translated as That damned armored train and released as Inglorious Bastards in the USA).

The plot of the original version centers around a group of American prisoners who are in the process of being shipped off to prison for their various crimes. On the way to prison, their transport is hit by a German Stuka, killing most of the MPs enabling 5 of the prisoners to escape.

The fugitives then decide to make a run for the Swiss Border and freedom. Somehow along the way they end up volunteering for a commando mission to steal the new prototype gyroscope for the Nazi V2 Rocket with help of the French Ressistance. The team must find a way to sneak onto the most heavily guarded train in German territory, steal the Nazis' most precious military hardware, and bring it back to the Allies without getting arrested again by their own side.

The new Brad Version is much different. Just wait and see.

A Modest Proposal for 2012

A Word from 2012 Terra:

Jonathan Swift (political satirist of the 1700s) lived in a time where saying the wrong thing or offending the wrong person got you thrown in jail. Therefore when he wrote his “Modest Proposal” he was careful to do none of the above.

Today is much different because you can say anything you want. The Freedom of Speech protects people from getting incarcerated or harmed for saying the wrong thing. However, saying the wrong thing does not come without consequences. Angering big business, special interest groups and powerful people with money is pretty much a death sentence if you want advertising dollars and a vehicle to be heard. Money is the name of the game and playing it well is the key.

So from now on, I won’t say that a popular beverage or flavor enhancer is bad for you, or this big company is doing something fishy, or this group of people is nuts. I am going to be like Swift and be sly with my words.

No longer will you see my posts saying one thing and my Google Ads saying another.



Below is Jonathan Swift's proposal for the people.






A MODEST PROPOSAL

FOR PREVENTING THE CHILDREN OF POOR PEOPLE IN IRELAND FROM BEING A BURDEN TO THEIR PARENTS OR COUNTRY, AND FOR MAKING THEM BENEFICIAL TO THE PUBLIC

IT IS a melancholy object to those who walk through this great town or travel in the country, when they see the streets, the roads, and cabin doors, crowded with beggars of the female sex, followed by three, four, or six children, all in rags and importuning every passenger for an alms. These mothers, instead of being able to work for their honest livelihood, are forced to employ all their time in strolling to beg sustenance for their helpless infants: who as they grow up either turn thieves for want of work, or leave their dear native country to fight for the Pretender in Spain, or sell themselves to the Barbadoes.

I think it is agreed by all parties that this prodigious number of children in the arms, or on the backs, or at the heels of their mothers, and frequently of their fathers, is in the present deplorable state of the kingdom a very great additional grievance; and, therefore, whoever could find out a fair, cheap, and easy method of making these children sound, useful members of the commonwealth, would deserve so well of the public as to have his statue set up for a preserver of the nation.

But my intention is very far from being confined to provide only for the children of professed beggars; it is of a much greater extent, and shall take in the whole number of infants at a certain age who are born of parents in effect as little able to support them as those who demand our charity in the streets.

As to my own part, having turned my thoughts for many years upon this important subject, and maturely weighed the several schemes of other projectors, I have always found them grossly mistaken in the computation. It is true, a child just dropped from its dam may be supported by her milk for a solar year, with little other nourishment; at most not above the value of 2s., which the mother may certainly get, or the value in scraps, by her lawful occupation of begging; and it is exactly at one year old that I propose to provide for them in such a manner as instead of being a charge upon their parents or the parish, or wanting food and raiment for the rest of their lives, they shall on the contrary contribute to the feeding, and partly to the clothing, of many thousands.

There is likewise another great advantage in my scheme, that it will prevent those voluntary abortions, and that horrid practice of women murdering their bastard children, alas! too frequent among us! sacrificing the poor innocent babes I doubt more to avoid the expense than the shame, which would move tears and pity in the most savage and inhuman breast.

The number of souls in this kingdom being usually reckoned one million and a half, of these I calculate there may be about two hundred thousand couple whose wives are breeders; from which number I subtract thirty thousand couples who are able to maintain their own children, although I apprehend there cannot be so many, under the present distresses of the kingdom; but this being granted, there will remain an hundred and seventy thousand breeders. I again subtract fifty thousand for those women who miscarry, or whose children die by accident or disease within the year. There only remains one hundred and twenty thousand children of poor parents annually born. The question therefore is, how this number shall be reared and provided for, which, as I have already said, under the present situation of affairs, is utterly impossible by all the methods hitherto proposed. For we can neither employ them in handicraft or agriculture; we neither build houses (I mean in the country) nor cultivate land: they can very seldom pick up a livelihood by stealing, till they arrive at six years old, except where they are of towardly parts, although I confess they learn the rudiments much earlier, during which time, they can however be properly looked upon only as probationers, as I have been informed by a principal gentleman in the county of Cavan, who protested to me that he never knew above one or two instances under the age of six, even in a part of the kingdom so renowned for the quickest proficiency in that art.

I am assured by our merchants, that a boy or a girl before twelve years old is no salable commodity; and even when they come to this age they will not yield above three pounds, or three pounds and half-a-crown at most on the exchange; which cannot turn to account either to the parents or kingdom, the charge of nutriment and rags having been at least four times that value.

I shall now therefore humbly propose my own thoughts, which I hope will not be liable to the least objection.

I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee or a ragout.

I do therefore humbly offer it to public consideration that of the hundred and twenty thousand children already computed, twenty thousand may be reserved for breed, whereof only one-fourth part to be males; which is more than we allow to sheep, black cattle or swine; and my reason is, that these children are seldom the fruits of marriage, a circumstance not much regarded by our savages, therefore one male will be sufficient to serve four females. That the remaining hundred thousand may, at a year old, be offered in the sale to the persons of quality and fortune through the kingdom; always advising the mother to let them suck plentifully in the last month, so as to render them plump and fat for a good table. A child will make two dishes at an entertainment for friends; and when the family dines alone, the fore or hind quarter will make a reasonable dish, and seasoned with a little pepper or salt will be very good boiled on the fourth day, especially in winter.

I have reckoned upon a medium that a child just born will weigh 12 pounds, and in a solar year, if tolerably nursed, increaseth to 28 pounds.

I grant this food will be somewhat dear, and therefore very proper for landlords, who, as they have already devoured most of the parents, seem to have the best title to the children.

Infant's flesh will be in season throughout the year, but more plentiful in March, and a little before and after; for we are told by a grave author, an eminent French physician, that fish being a prolific diet, there are more children born in Roman Catholic countries about nine months after Lent than at any other season; therefore, reckoning a year after Lent, the markets will be more glutted than usual, because the number of popish infants is at least three to one in this kingdom: and therefore it will have one other collateral advantage, by lessening the number of papists among us.

I have already computed the charge of nursing a beggar's child (in which list I reckon all cottagers, laborers, and four-fifths of the farmers) to be about two shillings per annum, rags included; and I believe no gentleman would repine to give ten shillings for the carcass of a good fat child, which, as I have said, will make four dishes of excellent nutritive meat, when he hath only some particular friend or his own family to dine with him. Thus the squire will learn to be a good landlord, and grow popular among his tenants; the mother will have eight shillings net profit, and be fit for work till she produces another child.

Those who are more thrifty (as I must confess the times require) may flay the carcass; the skin of which artificially dressed will make admirable gloves for ladies, and summer boots for fine gentlemen.

As to our city of Dublin, shambles may be appointed for this purpose in the most convenient parts of it, and butchers we may be assured will not be wanting; although I rather recommend buying the children alive, and dressing them hot from the knife, as we do roasting pigs.

A very worthy person, a true lover of his country, and whose virtues I highly esteem, was lately pleased in discoursing on this matter to offer a refinement upon my scheme. He said that many gentlemen of this kingdom, having of late destroyed their deer, he conceived that the want of venison might be well supplied by the bodies of young lads and maidens, not exceeding fourteen years of age nor under twelve; so great a number of both sexes in every country being now ready to starve for want of work and service; and these to be disposed of by their parents, if alive, or otherwise by their nearest relations. But with due deference to so excellent a friend and so deserving a patriot, I cannot be altogether in his sentiments; for as to the males, my American acquaintance assured me, from frequent experience, that their flesh was generally tough and lean, like that of our schoolboys by continual exercise, and their taste disagreeable; and to fatten them would not answer the charge. Then as to the females, it would, I think, with humble submission be a loss to the public, because they soon would become breeders themselves; and besides, it is not improbable that some scrupulous people might be apt to censure such a practice (although indeed very unjustly), as a little bordering upon cruelty; which, I confess, hath always been with me the strongest objection against any project, however so well intended.

But in order to justify my friend, he confessed that this expedient was put into his head by the famous Psalmanazar, a native of the island Formosa, who came from thence to London above twenty years ago, and in conversation told my friend, that in his country when any young person happened to be put to death, the executioner sold the carcass to persons of quality as a prime dainty; and that in his time the body of a plump girl of fifteen, who was crucified for an attempt to poison the emperor, was sold to his imperial majesty's prime minister of state, and other great mandarins of the court, in joints from the gibbet, at four hundred crowns. Neither indeed can I deny, that if the same use were made of several plump young girls in this town, who without one single groat to their fortunes cannot stir abroad without a chair, and appear at playhouse and assemblies in foreign fineries which they never will pay for, the kingdom would not be the worse.

Some persons of a desponding spirit are in great concern about that vast number of poor people, who are aged, diseased, or maimed, and I have been desired to employ my thoughts what course may be taken to ease the nation of so grievous an encumbrance. But I am not in the least pain upon that matter, because it is very well known that they are every day dying and rotting by cold and famine, and filth and vermin, as fast as can be reasonably expected. And as to the young laborers, they are now in as hopeful a condition; they cannot get work, and consequently pine away for want of nourishment, to a degree that if at any time they are accidentally hired to common labor, they have not strength to perform it; and thus the country and themselves are happily delivered from the evils to come.

I have too long digressed, and therefore shall return to my subject. I think the advantages by the proposal which I have made are obvious and many, as well as of the highest importance. For first, as I have already observed, it would greatly lessen the number of papists, with whom we are yearly overrun, being the principal breeders of the nation as well as our most dangerous enemies; and who stay at home on purpose with a design to deliver the kingdom to the Pretender, hoping to take their advantage by the absence of so many good protestants, who have chosen rather to leave their country than stay at home and pay tithes against their conscience to an episcopal curate.

Secondly, The poorer tenants will have something valuable of their own, which by law may be made liable to distress and help to pay their landlord's rent, their corn and cattle being already seized, and money a thing unknown.

Thirdly, Whereas the maintenance of an hundred thousand children, from two years old and upward, cannot be computed at less than ten shillings a-piece per annum, the nation's stock will be thereby increased fifty thousand pounds per annum, beside the profit of a new dish introduced to the tables of all gentlemen of fortune in the kingdom who have any refinement in taste. And the money will circulate among ourselves, the goods being entirely of our own growth and manufacture.

Fourthly, The constant breeders, beside the gain of eight shillings sterling per annum by the sale of their children, will be rid of the charge of maintaining them after the first year.

Fifthly, This food would likewise bring great custom to taverns; where the vintners will certainly be so prudent as to procure the best receipts for dressing it to perfection, and consequently have their houses frequented by all the fine gentlemen, who justly value themselves upon their knowledge in good eating: and a skilful cook, who understands how to oblige his guests, will contrive to make it as expensive as they please.

Sixthly, This would be a great inducement to marriage, which all wise nations have either encouraged by rewards or enforced by laws and penalties. It would increase the care and tenderness of mothers toward their children, when they were sure of a settlement for life to the poor babes, provided in some sort by the public, to their annual profit instead of expense. We should see an honest emulation among the married women, which of them could bring the fattest child to the market. Men would become as fond of their wives during the time of their pregnancy as they are now of their mares in foal, their cows in calf, their sows when they are ready to farrow; nor offer to beat or kick them (as is too frequent a practice) for fear of a miscarriage.

Many other advantages might be enumerated. For instance, the addition of some thousand carcasses in our exportation of barreled beef, the propagation of swine's flesh, and improvement in the art of making good bacon, so much wanted among us by the great destruction of pigs, too frequent at our tables; which are no way comparable in taste or magnificence to a well-grown, fat, yearling child, which roasted whole will make a considerable figure at a lord mayor's feast or any other public entertainment. But this and many others I omit, being studious of brevity.

Supposing that one thousand families in this city, would be constant customers for Infant's Flesh, besides others who might have it at merry meetings, particularly at weddings and christenings, I compute that Dublin would take off annually about twenty thousand carcasses, and the rest of the Kingdom (where probably they will be sold somewhat cheaper) the remaining eighty thousand.
I can think of no one objection, that will possibly be raised against this proposal, unless it should be urged, that the number of people will be thereby much lessened in the Kingdom. This I freely own, and 'twas indeed one principal design in offering it to the world. I desire the reader will observe, that I calculate my remedy for this one individual kingdom of Ireland, and for no other that ever was, is, or I think, ever can be upon Earth. Therefore let no man talk to me of other expedients: of taxing our absentees at five shillings a pound: of using neither clothes, nor household furniture, except what is of our own growth and manufacture: of utterly rejecting the materials and instruments that promote foreign luxury: of curing the expensiveness of pride, vanity, idleness, and gaming in our women: of introducing a vein of parsimony, prudence and temperance: of learning to love our country, wherein we differ even from Laplanders, and the inhabitants of Topinamboo: of quitting our animosities, and factions, nor act any longer like the Jews, who were murdering one another at the very moment their city was taken: of being a little cautious not to sell our country and consciences for nothing: of teaching our landlords to have at least one degree of mercy towards their tenants. Lastly, of putting a spirit of honesty, industry, and skill into our shop-keepers, who, if a resolution could now be taken to buy only our native goods, would immediately unite to cheat and exact upon us in the price, the measure and the goodness, nor could ever yet be brought to make one fair proposal of just dealing, though often and earnestly invited to it.

Therefore I repeat, let no man talk to me of these and the like expedients, till he hath at least some glimpse of hope, that there will ever be some hearty and sincere attempt to put them into practice.

But as to my self, having been wearied out for many years with offering vain, idle, visionary thoughts, and at length despairing of success, I fortunately fell upon this proposal, which as it is wholly new, so it hath something solid and real, of no expense and little trouble, full in our own power, and whereby we can incur no danger in disobliging England. For this kind of commodity will not bear exportation, the flesh being of too tender a consistence, to admit a long continuance in salt, although perhaps I could name a country, which would be glad to eat up our whole nation without it.


After all, I am not so violently bent upon my own opinion as to reject any offer proposed by wise men, which shall be found equally innocent, cheap, easy, and effectual. But before something of that kind shall be advanced in contradiction to my scheme, and offering a better, I desire the author or authors will be pleased maturely to consider two points. First, as things now stand, how they will be able to find food and raiment for an hundred thousand useless mouths and backs. And secondly, there being a round million of creatures in human figure throughout this kingdom, whose whole subsistence put into a common stock would leave them in debt two millions of pounds sterling, adding those who are beggars by profession to the bulk of farmers, cottagers, and laborers, with their wives and children who are beggars in effect: I desire those politicians who dislike my overture, and may perhaps be so bold as to attempt an answer, that they will first ask the parents of these mortals, whether they would not at this day think it a great happiness to have been sold for food, at a year old in the manner I prescribe, and thereby have avoided such a perpetual scene of misfortunes as they have since gone through by the oppression of landlords, the impossibility of paying rent without money or trade, the want of common sustenance, with neither house nor clothes to cover them from the inclemencies of the weather, and the most inevitable prospect of entailing the like or greater miseries upon their breed for ever.

I profess, in the sincerity of my heart, that I have not the least personal interest in endeavoring to promote this necessary work, having no other motive than the public good of my country, by advancing our trade, providing for infants, relieving the poor, and giving some pleasure to the rich. I have no children by which I can propose to get a single penny; the youngest being nine years old, and my wife past child-bearing.


Before I go, I want to also mention that Jonathan Swift also wrote Gulliver's Travels. There was also a message in that one as well.

A Scientology Bunker for 2012?





Are the Scientologists building a survival bunker? What are they preparing for? Could it be 2012? Who knows? This video is more proof that many people are preparing for something terrible to happen to Terra (Mother Earth) in 2012.


Below is the Wiki Defintion for the Church of Spiritual Technology or CST:

The Church of Spiritual Technology, also known as CST, is a Californian 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation[1], incorporated in 1982, which owns all the copyrights of the estate of L. Ron Hubbard. The CST is doing business as L. Ron Hubbard Library. The organization receives its income from royalty fees paid to it by licensing of the copyrighted materials of Dianetics and Scientology to Scientology-connected organizations approved by the Religious Technology Center, and from its wholly owned for-profit subsidiary Author Services Inc. which publishes and promotes Hubbard's fiction works.[2]

In a 1993 memorandum by the Church of Scientology International, the role and function of CST has been described as follows:

"[...] CST [...] is an autonomous church of the Scientology religion outside of the international Scientology ecclesiastical hierarchy. CST conducts an extensive program of activities to preserve and archive the Scientology Scriptures for use by future generations. CST also owns the option to acquire RTC's rights to the Scientology advance[d] technology and religious marks under three narrowly defined sets of circumstances, each of which contemplates a serious threat to continued existence of the religion. CST is the principal beneficiary of Mr. Hubbard's estate, provided that it obtains recognition of its tax-exempt status. [...]"[3]

Charlie Chaplin's Speech for 2012




This speech is from the movie The Great Dictator. It was Charlie Chaplin's first true talking picture. The movie was released in 1940, just a year before the U.S. entered into the second World War. In his speech Chaplin talks about "machine men with machine hearts and machine minds". He was making reference to men like Adolf Hitler and Hideki Tojo.

In today's world, the dictators of the 1940's have been replace with the owners of the big corporations. They are today's machine men with machine hearts and machine minds. They don't need huge armies to take over the world because they have already done so by controlling politics, information, energy, the products we buy and even the food we eat. This is something to think about as we approach 2012.

Earth's Carry Capacity & 2012



\allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344">



As 2012 approaches, we can clearly see that our planet is grossly over populated. Resources such as food, water, arable land, and energy are running low. Decades of pollution from our fossil fuels, factories, farms and cities has made the planet is less viable than ever before. How can “Mother Earth” continue to sustain more with so much less?



Wiki defines Carrying Capacity –



The carrying capacity of a biological species in an environment is the population size of the species that the environment can sustain in the long term, given the food, habitat, water and other necessities available in the environment. For the human population, more complex variables such as sanitation and medical care are sometimes considered as part of the necessary infrastructure.



In 2012 the World’s population will top 7 billion, more than three times the Earth’s estimated carrying capacity. We are at a crossroads and if the proponents of the Gaia Hypothesis are correct, the Earth will respond by correcting this imbalance. How this will take place is unknown.




Dr McConeghy's Environmental Science -


When scientists say that the carrying capacity of the Earth is 2 billion, they are not forgetting that we have 6 billion already. What they are saying is, that if you add up all the supplies in the world, and divide them up according to the amount that a typical American uses, then there is only enough for 2 billion people. If we have 6 billion people, the amount of fuel, water, electricity, etc. is just not enough to go around. Some people are going to be left out. We know that this is the case because, as we said in class, only about 1.2 billion people live in MDCs while the other 4.8 billion people have to make do with less.

Monsanto Will Double Profits in 2012








Monsanto

Last name origin & meaning:

Spanish and Portuguese: habitational name from Monsanto (‘sacred mountain’) in Beira or one of the other places so named.


Sacred mountains are mountains sacred to certain religion. Almost all religions have some sacred mountains - either holy themselves (like Mount Olympus in Greek mythology) or related to famous events (like Mount Sinai in Judaism and descendant religions). In some cases the sacred mountain is purely mythical, like the Peak of Hara in Zoroastrianism. Volcanos were also thought to be the homes of gods, such as Mount Etna in Italy, which was believed to be the home of Vulcan the Roman god of fire.

Monsanto expects profits to double by 2012
By staff reporter, 13-Nov-2007
Related topics: Financial & Industry

Biotechnology giant Monsanto has said it expects to double its profit over the next five years, on the back of the firm's hopes for new platforms it plans to implement.

Company executives told analysts last week that between now and 2012 Monsanto expects to introduce six "blockbuster projects" with an estimated sales potential of up to $500m, as well as one "mega-blockbuster project" that could bring in over $1bn.

"While we've historically talked a lot about the products we're delivering, we're now focused on the platforms that our business is poised to deliver between now and the end of 2012. We believe these platforms, like SmartStax in corn and Roundup RReady2Yield in soybeans, have the potential to effectively change the competitive dynamics within the agriculture industry," said Monsanto chairman, president and CEO Hugh Grant.

Attendees at the firm's biennial US Investor Day meeting heard that as well as doubling the gross profit potential of its business by 2012, Monsanto also expects to generate free cash flow of up to $2.2bn in the period, which will be used for additional acquisitions and technology investments.

The company said it expects its seeds and traits business to be shaped by six key factors over the next five years. These are: its US and international corn seeds and traits business; its soybean business; its cotton business; its Seminis fruit and vegetable seed business; and its R&D pipeline.

According to the firm, it continues to show good potential in its corn operations, on the back of the strong performance of its Dekalb brand and the introduction of its SmartStax product.

Monsanto also said its soybean business is on track for the release of its Roundup RReady2Yield technology on 1-2m acres in 2009, followed by its full-scale roll-out of 5-6m acres in 2010. The firm also said that the introduction of Roundup RReady2Yield soybeans will serve as the platform for up to five new stacked trait products in soybeans by 2012.

In terms of its R&D pipeline, the firm said that by 2020, this will create an additional $5bn in gross sales.

"Backed by the growing demand for our seed and trait products, our business is poised for significant organic growth between now and the end of 2012," said Grant.

World Population in 2012: 7 Billion




FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Broadcast Release


World Population Approaches 7 Billion
World population is projected to reach 7 billion in 2012, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The world population hit 6 billion in 1999.

These figures come from the updated world population estimates and projections released today through the Census Bureau’s International Data Base (IDB). The IDB provides information on population size and growth, age and sex composition, mortality, fertility and net migration. The data are available for 226 countries and other selected geographies.

This revision to the IDB includes updated projections for 34 countries. Compared to previous estimates, this revision indicates that the world population will be 146 million larger in 2050.

The Census Bureau’s latest projections show world population growing at a slower pace during the first half of the 21st century than the latter half of the 20th century. The world population doubled from 3 billion in 1959 to 6 billion in 1999, but is projected to increase by only 50 percent between 1999 and 2040.

Global population growth, about 1.2 percent per year, is projected to decline to 0.5 percent by 2050. However, this growth will be concentrated in less-developed countries.

About 1.5 percent of the current global population is 80 or older, with more than half living in developed countries. By 2050, about 5 percent of the world’s population is projected to be 80 or older, with about three in four likely to be living in less-developed countries. For developed countries, the percentage of the population 80 or older will grow to about 10 percent in 2050.

World population estimates and projections include the impact of HIV and AIDS. Of the 34 countries updated in this revision, nine are hard hit by this pandemic (Benin, Côte d’Ivoire [Ivory Coast], Eritrea, Ethiopia, Guinea, Nigeria, South Africa, Zimbabwe and the Central African Republic). Data for other countries seriously affected by HIV and AIDS are also available from the International Data Base.

The International Data Base offers online users a choice of ways to retrieve demographic data, including:

Country summary pages showing key population indicators
Tables of demographic indicators for countries and regions
Population pyramids showing age and sex composition

First Contact on 2012






Wiki-


First contact (anthropology)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
For other uses, see First contact.
First contact is a term describing the first meeting of two cultures previously unaware of one another. One notable example of first contact is that between the Spanish and the Arawak (and ultimately all of the Americas) in 1492.

Such contact is sometimes described later by one group or the other as a "discovery", particularly by the more developed society. In addition it is generally the more advanced society that is able to travel to a new geographic region to discover and make contact with the generally more isolated, less developed society, leading to this frame of reference. However, some object to the application of such a word to human beings, which is why "first contact" is generally preferred. The use of the term "discovery" tends to occur more in reference to geography than cultures; for an example of a common discovery debate, see Discoverer of the Americas

2012 Terra:

May be December 21, 2012 is not the end of the world but the end of the world as we know it. Think about the arrival of the first Europeans to the Americas and how the lives of those Native Americans were changed forever from that point on.

We are on a collision course for something big to happen? The signs are all around us. It is inevitable and will come. All we have to do is open our eyes and our minds.

Chinese Plague

Chinese Plague Likely Started From Infected Dog
Chinese state media reported that a dog is suspected to be the origin of an outbreak of pneumonic plague in northwest China that has left 10,000 people under strict quarantine and resulted in the deaths of three people, AFP reported.In an effort to contain the spread of the highly virulent disease, Ziketan, a remote town in a Tibetan area of Qinghai province, has been locked down since Saturday.Xinhua news agency said one patient was in critical condition and eight others were infected, most of them relatives of the first fatality, a 32-year-old herdsman.The news agency reported late Wednesday, quoting professor Wang Hu, director of the Qinghai disease control bureau, that initial tests had shown that the herdsman's dead dog was the likely origin of the outbreak.The dog probably died after eating a plague-infected marmot and that the man became infected when he was bitten by fleas while burying the dead dog.

2012 Terra: Aspartame & Monsanto




From my earlier post on the Svalbard Seed Farm I quoted Henry Kissinger.

Henry Kissinger (circa 1970's) -

"If you control the oil you control the country. If you control the food you control the population".

The Polar Shift premise in to soon to be released blockbuster movie "2012" should be the least of our worries. Aspartame a.k.a NutraSweet is killing us as I write this post. Monsanto the same company which developed Agent Orange is also the creator of NutraSweet. NutraSweet is in almost everything we eat or drink even though it has the most health related complaints to the FDA of any food product out there. Aspartame is so bad that it needed approval 26 times in the last 23 years.

Wiki -

The 1940s saw Monsanto become a leading manufacturer of plastics, including polystyrene, and synthetic fibers. Since then, it has remained one of the top 10 US chemical companies. Other major products have included the herbicides 2,4,5-T, DDT, and Agent Orange used primarily during the Vietnam War as a defoliant agent (later proven to be highly carcinogenic to any who come into contact with the solution), the excitotoxin[dubious – discuss] aspartame (NutraSweet), bovine somatotropin (bovine growth hormone (BST), and PCBs[1]. Also in this decade, Monsanto operated the Dayton Project, and later Mound Laboratory in Miamisburg, Ohio, for the Manhattan Project, the development of the first nuclear weapons and, after 1947, the Atomic Energy Commission

Are the Feds Stockpiling food for 2012?








Here is an article from WorldNetDailey:

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=70281

In this article they talk about the Federal Government's recent stockpiling of #10 cans of freeze dried food. What are #10 cans of freeze dried food? Here is an explanation from Mountain House, the largest manufacturer in the world of freeze dried foods.

Mountain House -

#10 Cans-- 25 Year Shelf Life
Packed in airtight #10 cans, Mountain House freeze-dried foods have the longest shelf life available. We can confidently claim a 25-year shelf life, because our testing has shown the shelf life exceeds 30 years! These independent university studies were performed on actual 20-, 25- and 30-year-old product stored under real-world conditions, which weren’t always ideal -- not on newer product exposed to an accelerated-time environment in a laboratory.
The interior and exterior of the cans are coated with protective enamel for double protection. Our canning process, which is equal to military standards, uses both vacuum oxygen removal and nitrogen flushing. Your food is protected until you are ready to enjoy it.

After opening, we recommend using the dry contents within one week for best results and taste, using the convenient resealable plastic lid between uses.

After hydration, treat any leftover hydrated food as you would fresh food.

Survive 2012 with a Survival Condo?





This company buys old missile silos and transforms them into underground condos built to survive all kinds of disasters namely the 2012 event.

Survival Condos appear to be a throw back to the 1960's bomb shelter of the Cuban Missile Crisis Days. I was reluctant to find out much they really cost when I read this:

Persons interested in purchasing one of these units are advised of the following:

1. This is a high-end facility that requires substantial financial resources.
2. Anticipated completion date for this facility is September 2010.
3. Each condo unit can have a maximum occupancy of eight people (members) who must be identified.
4. You will be required to sign a release document that authorizes us to run full background investigation on ALL authorized members.
5. Ownership requires mandatory annual training and familiarization visits of all members.

For those of you interested or bold enough to find out:

Yes this is a trailer for a movie that came out a few months may be 6 months ago. If we continue to damage and over populate our planet aka Terra we too may be looking for a new world in which to live

So go ahead and laugh at this cartoon but if mankind does not shape up soon this could be our faith. 2012 Terra Theory may just be an omen of things to come.

Battle for Terra (known as Terra before a name-change for the 2009 U.S. release) is a 2007 computer animated science fiction film, based on the short film, about a peaceful alien planet which faces destruction from colonization by the displaced remainder of the human race. The film was directed by Aristomenis Tsirbas of MeniThings Productions, and features the voices of Brian Cox, Luke Wilson, and David Cross among others. It premiered on September 8, 2007 at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was widely released in the United States on May 1, 2009.[2] The film was originally shot in 2D but was made so that a second camera could be added to the film.[3] After the film was shown at festivals and distributors showed an interest in it a small team was hired to render the entire film again from the perspective of the second camera for a true 3D effect.[3]

It won the Grand Prize for Best Animated Feature at the 2008 Ottawa International Animation Festival. [4]

Sitchin's Theories Relating to 2012



Zecharia Sitchin's official website:

2012 & Zecharia Sitchin







Wiki -


Zecharia Sitchin (born 1922)[1] is an author of books promoting an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts, amidst other aspects of pseudoscience.

Sitchin attributes the creation of the ancient Sumerian culture to the "Anunnaki" (or "Nephilim"), a race of aliens from a planet he calls Nibiru, which he believes to be in an elongated, elliptical orbit in the Earth's own Solar System and asserts that Sumerian mythology reflects this view.

His speculations are entirely discounted by professional scientists, historians, and archaeologists, who note many problems with his translations of ancient texts and with his understanding of physics.[2]

2012 or Apocalypse Now






The 2012 Event may be the least of our worries. Man's INHUMANITY to man is our biggest problem today. For all of you don't know Apocalypse Now was based on Albert Camus' Heart of Darkness. This book is a must read.

http://www.amazon.com/Heart-Darkness-Oxford-Worlds-Classics/dp/0192801724


Wiki -

Albert Camus (French pronunciation: [albɛʁ kamy]) (7 November 1913 – 4 January 1960) was a French author, philosopher, and journalist who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957. He is often associated with existentialism, but Camus refused this label.[1] He wrote in his essay The Rebel that his whole life was devoted to opposing the philosophy of nihilism while still delving deeply into individual freedom.

In 1949, Camus founded the Group for International Liaisons within the Revolutionary Union Movement, which (according to the book Albert Camus, une vie by Olivier Todd) was a group opposed to some tendencies of the surrealistic movement of André Breton. Camus was the second-youngest recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature (after Rudyard Kipling) when he became the first Africa-born writer to receive the award, in 1957.[2] He is also the shortest-lived of any literature laureate to date, having died in an automobile accident only three years after receiving the award.

In an interview in 1945, Camus rejected any ideological associations: "No, I am not an existentialist. Sartre and I are always surprised to see our names linked…"[3]

2012: What Will Happen





Here is a humorous take on the 2012 event. It gave me a good chuckle and I thought you guys would like to see it. Enjoy.

2012 Pyramids




This video shows pyramids from all over the world that are often aligned with the stars. This is just something to think about since the 2012 deals with a
cosmic/galactic alignment.


Wiki Definition -


A pyramid is a building where the outer surfaces are triangular and converge at a point. The base of a pyramid is usually trilateral or quadrilateral (but may be of any polygon shape), meaning that a pyramid usually has four or five faces. A pyramid's design, with the majority of the weight closer to the ground,[1] means that less material higher up on the pyramid will be pushing down from above: this allowed early civilizations to create stable monumental structures.

The South Pole Telescope. A picture of the South Pole Telescope collaboration in front of the telescope.The South Pole Telescope (SPT) is a 10 meter diameter telescope located at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antarctica. It is a microwave/millimeter-wave telescope that observes in a frequency range between 70 and 300 GHz. The primary science goal for SPT is to conduct a survey to find several thousand clusters of galaxies, which should allow interesting constraints on the Dark Energy equation of state.

The project is a collaboration between the University of Chicago, the University of California-Berkeley, Case Western Reserve University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, the University of Colorado-Boulder, and McGill University. It is funded by the National Science Foundation.


From the South Pole Telescope Website (University of Chicago):

October 10, 2008: Galaxy clusters discovered with the South Pole Telescope.

The first major scientific results from the South Pole Telescope initial survey were released on October 10, 2008. A paper submitted to the Astrophysical Journal and posted on the astro-ph preprint server describes the detection of four distant, massive clusters of galaxies in an initial analysis of South Pole Telescope (SPT) survey data. Three of these galaxy clusters were previously unknown systems and, therefore, represent the first clusters detected in a Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect survey. These first four galaxy clusters are the most significant SZ detections from a subset of the ongoing SPT survey. As such, they serve as a demonstration that SZ surveys, and the SPT in particular, can be an effective means for finding galaxy clusters.

Pole shift hypothesis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
"Polar Shift" redirects here. For the Clive Cussler novel, see Polar Shift (novel). For the Antarctica benefit compilation, see Polar Shift (album).
This article is about the hypothesis of pole shift in its historical context. For a description of the modern scientific understanding, see true polar wander.
The pole shift hypothesis is the hypothesis that the axis of rotation of a planet has not always been at its present-day locations or that the axis will not persist there; in other words, that its physical poles had been or will be shifted. The Pole shift hypothesis is almost always discussed in the context of Earth, but other bodies in the Solar System may have experienced axial reorientation during their existences.

It is now established that true polar wander has occurred at various times in the past, but at rates of 1° per million years or less. However, in popular literature, many theories have been suggested involving very rapid polar shift.

2012, Svalbard, Bill Gates, Rockerfeller













As Henry Kissinger declared in the 1970’s, ‘If you control the oil you control the country; if you control food, you control the population.’

Gates and the Rockerfeller Foundation are two of the major contributors to the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault.

Read the article by F. William Engdahl for whole story:

Wiki -

Main article:

Svalbard Global Seed Vault The Norwegian government has, in cooperation with the Global Crop Diversity Trust, built a "doomsday" seed bank to store seeds from as many of the world's crop varieties and their botanical wild relatives as possible. The bank was created by hollowing out a 120-meter tunnel on Spitsbergen cut into rock with a natural temperature of −6 ˚C, refrigerating it to −18 ˚C, and then storing seeds donated by the 1,400 crop repositories maintained by countries around the world. The vault has top security blast-proof doors and two airlocks. The number of seeds stored depends on the number of countries participating in the project. The point of this project is to prevent the diversity of agricultural crops currently stored (typically in the form of seed) in seed banks from becoming extinct as a result of accident, mismanagement, equipment failure, war or natural disaster, or due to a regional or global catastrophe.[6][7][8]

2012 Mayan Dooms Day Prediction

The Mayans say that some sort of "dark event" visits the Earth every few thousand years. On December 12, 2012 the cyclical window is scheduled to reopen once again. The Mayans also say that the destruction of a civilization can sometimes be the result of losing "the Mandate of Heaven". If you look at the world today it is not hard to see that we have angered the gods.
