OK, how many of us Colorado Fishermen think that the world will in fact end in 2012?

quick answer... The internet. Go back and look at a certain area. I will bet that you will find mass die offs of different animals. It is a common happening all over the world. It just so happens that with the internet, world news comes to our front doors. When something happens in Australia, the US will take it and run with the same situation here! Then something in France occurs, then it becomes a greater story. 15 yrs ago, we didn't pay attention to small stories in other countries. Same thing with the Kidnappings, and child abuse cases. It happens all the time, the media just uses it the create a greater story! it's because people take it the heart that they do it in the 1st place. If people didn't get all riled up, it wouldn't be news!Southplatter said:Imma be honest. Things are looking bad. Birds and Fishes are dying off in massive amounts in the same year. We are seeing very rare causes of death. 3 kids with enlarged heart deaths in 3 weeks. Death from the tow truck driver being dragged by own cables. Tire gets off semi and kills woman. Earthquakes in AR. Tsunamis in Japan, Oil spills in the Gulf. Kidnappings and childabuse happening everywhere. I havent seen this much news in a long time. Is it a sign, I hope not, but if the human race is going to end, may it come quick and painless. I still vote for zombies, stacking up the ammo and learning other ways to make fuel.
that's what I'm talking about! Put the worries away and enjoy what we have!djfisherman2 said:I hear the solar activity in 2012 is gonna be spectacular...it ought to make for a good Walleye fishing year!!! See ya' on the lake..
Well, I admit that it was an open ended question. It was deliberate. I wanted to open the door as wide as possible.What do you mean by the question?... - WE
Uh, heh heh, you said "coronal mass ejection..." heh heh, yeah. Actually, this is cause for concern. But it is also completely beyond human capacity to address, and as such I file it in the same mental drawer as "I could get hit by a bus!" It is true, but not worth my time or stress to worry about.I worry about solar activity in the next few years. A coronal mass ejection could wipe out electricty for a extended period and that will be the end of the world as we know it. The solar maximum should occur between 2012-2014. -Troutnut
Hard to argue. :-X But they have always looked bad, right? They also look good. It depends on where you look. I recommend that you do not watch the news... because if it bleeds, it leads. Stress is bad for us.Imma be honest. Things are looking bad... -Southplatter
There have been about six recorded mass extinctions in Earth's geological history. The most recent dramatic example of mass extinction came at the end of the Cretaceous Period, 65 million years ago. The most profound loss of life in Earth's history occurred in the Permian, where more than eighty percent of all life forms went extinct.quick answer... The internet.

DavidK, you are a gentleman and a scholar.The bottom line is this: People have been predicting the end of the world for thousands of years, and since obviously every single one of them have been correct we should all believe it this time too. (I hope the sarcasm was obvious on that comment.) Nothing is going to happen in 2012, just like the rapture isn't going to happen in 2 months (maybe it happened already! ). None of these doomsday prophets have ever had a shred of evidence or gray matter to back up their predictions, and the 2012 people aren't any more edjumicated. -DavidK
