Welcome to the spooky, sensationalized end of the world “2012 Phenomenon.” Thanks to an array of spellbinding theories tossed about on the Internet, books, TV, and blockbuster films, catastrophic events were feared to hit in the year 2012.
Today, in 2013, doomsday followers still believe the world will stop, too. Read on—unravel some believe it or not no-nonsense scenarios that may or may not happen.
While smoky skies in Northern Calif. and Nevada isn't doomsday, the Rim Fire is catastrophic and one of the worst wildfires in history for the Golden State.
Alien Attack: In the exciting film “Independence Day” aliens pay a visit to Earth. The extraterrestrials are hostile and their arrival causes devastation. Other UFO films like “War of the Worlds” and open-minded human observers show us that we may not be alone.
2012 Scenario: And come December 21, an E.T. sequel could take place on our planet. But, the rumor is, this 2012 Phenomenon scenario may come with a Planet X aka Nibiru and collide with Earth.
Great Earthquakes: If you don’t like space creatures, you may not enjoy a group gathering of planets that can shake it up. The Jupiter Effect, a book penned by John Gribben, Ph.D., and Stephen Plagemann, predicted an alignment of the planets of the solar system would cause gravitational effect on the Earth’s crust and create great earthquakes, including a great movement of the San Andreas Fault, on March 10, 1982. It didn’t happen.
2012 Scenario: Still, some folks believe, like in The Jupiter Effect, there is going to a “galactic” line up but with the sun and black hole at the center of our galaxy and it may spell disaster on Earth.
Asteroid/Meteor: If the West Coast doesn’t go down, the East Coast may be next in line, according to the film “Armageddon,” when an asteroid zooms toward Earth. As the rock nears, meteorites damage New York with cause of concern for our planet. According to California Geologist Jim Berkland, we may be tested during the 2029 scheduled close approach of an asteroid.
2012 Scenario: But 2012 end days fans believe a large asteroid or meteor may arrive sooner than later on Earth. If it’s large enough, doomsday could be the end result.
Polar Shift: In another sci-fi thriller, “2012” shows us a pole shift in motion where the North Pole and South Pole change places.
2012 Scenario: If there is a pole shift (shifts of geographical locations of the poles and the axis of rotation of the Earth), great earthquakes and massive flooding could be the end result of such an event.
Solar Storms: Seattle-based, science author Mitch Battros believes there may be a connection between the Sun and Earth’s magnetic field shift and earthquakes. In my book The Man Who Predicts Earthquakes (Sentient Publications), he noted his studies have been targeted toward solar activity and its link to weather. So, what is Battros’s equation? Sunspots – Solar Flares – Magnetic Field Shift – Shifting Ocean and Jet Stream Currents – Extreme Weather and Human Disruption.
2012 Scenario: Solar flares are nothing new. In the movie “Knowing” the sun’s solar flares scorch the Earth and a lethal tidal wave of fire sweeps the Earth. Some theories suggest on December 21 a solar storm could happen.
Meanwhile, I suspect the media and commercialism will have a heyday about the potential coming apocalypse. More chatter about a dangerous reversal of the Earth’s magnetic field (which could cause a mega glitch in technology to solar radiation) will be the buzz. As an intuitive, I sense we will be challenged and endure more natural disasters and man-made catastrophes–whatever the cause may be. And it may feel like end times but in the end we do not have control over catastrophic events.
The End of the World as We Knew It
Back in 1999, people feared the Y2K crazies linked to a potential computer crisis but we survived and entered the 21st century. In 12 years our world has endured events that have felt like the sky was falling. Who can forget the attack of America on September 11, 2001; The 2004 Asian Tsunami; Hurricane Katrina; the BP oil spill; the 2009 flu pandemic; and the 9.0 Japan Quake-Tsunami(s) and nuclear plant crisis. These events were horrific. Lives were lost, humans and animals were displaced, and our environment was challenged. But despite the chaos, life goes on and our world is still here.
