Y2K is a hoax, I mean 2012. Only 666 more days until Dec 21, 2012 - what a bad omen.

A couple of websites were writing about 2012.  I watched the movie.  It was good for a goofy science fiction movie.  I didn't see it at the theater, instead the kids brought over a rental.  Hurry, it costs a dollar and they want me to watch it before they get charged a second dollar!  They wanted my scientific perspective.  I'm not a survivalist who's expecting a catastrophic event like that.  I plan for a lot of scenarios but not one where the whole world will disappear other than those who get on the rescue arks. 

That movie wasn't even allowed in North Korea.  You see, 2012 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of their nation's founder so the country has designated the year 2012 to be the year to become a rising superpower, Obviously no Mayan 2012 end of world predictions or biblical predictions allowed. 

No, I think this panic about 2012 is the new made up crisis of the decade.  There are so many problems in the world that are much more apt to actually happen.  What about Y2K?  You have to remember that Y2K was a manmade “crisis of the decade” computer problem…the computers were all supposed to fail and turn the world upside down.  The computer programmers were able to reprogram computers and save the world!  2012 is also a manmade problem. The Mayan calendar stops then. Sorry, but that was wishful thinking on the Mayans part. Their civilization as they knew it ended long before then. Our media just needs another “crisis of the decade” so 2012 is it.

Only God knows when the world will end. He may throw some kinks in along the way to keep people on their toes but survivalists are expecting to survive what is really a man made problem. If you really analyze what is going on in the world both locally and globally, society and civil unrest is more of an issue than something God and the universe throws at us. Of course, those in Australia who just went through the flood may think differently or those in New Zealand.

God will take us when he is ready. Still, God expects us to want to survive, which is why we are preppers or survivalists. Anything less is not respecting the wonderful life and unique opportunities that God has given us. I’m not worried about prophesies about 2012. On the other hand, there's only 666 more days until Dec. 21, 2012.  Better get prepared!

There's a song the kids were singing today, "Furious they assailed us but your arm availed us, and your word broke their sword when our own strength failed us."  That's what it's all about.  We practice and do our best and God will provide.
