But seriously, there are so many irregularities surrounding the DIA, that a voluminous book could be written on the subject. The facilities and the art displayed lead many observers to believe that the DIA is much more than an airport: it is literally a New-Age cathedral, full of occult symbolism and references to secret societies. The art at the DIA is NOT an aggregation of odd choices made by people with poor taste, like many people think. It is a cohesive collection of symbolic pieces that reflect the philosophy, the beliefs and the goals of the global elite. The DIA is the largest airport in America and it has cost over 4.8 billion dollars. Everything regarding this airport has been meticulously planned and everything is there for a reason. http://www.factoverfiction.com/article/3627But seriously, there are so many irregularities surrounding the DIA, that a voluminous... more
Elenin: Comet or Brown Dwarf?
Conspiracy theorists believe that Elenin isn't a comet, but a Brown Dwarf star. Although, NASA has officially denied the claim, there are some interesting coincidences of major earthquakes occurring simultaneously with alignments of the Sun, Earth, and Elenin:
February 27, 2010 - Chile - 8.8 (6th largest in last 100 years)
September 4, 2010 - Christchurch, NZ - 7.2
March 15, 2011 - Japan (occurred on 3/11) - 9.0 (4th largest in last 100 years)
Were the Mayan's a year too late?

was the japan earthquake related to the mayan calendar
When I first stumbled across this date, the prophecies and significance that have been associated with 21/12/2012 (before the movie may I add), I was hugely drawn in by the vast number of different predictions on what would happen (if anything), and how the these foreseen events would occur... in approximately 21 months from now?
What does stand out to me is the amount, the different standpoints but yet similar views on this “End of Age”.
First off and probably the most hyped is the Mayan Calendar, which runs out on this exact date, (erm well by some people's calculations).
Popol Vuh is the Mayan Creation Myth, that the Earth, humanity, and life experience cycles of destruction and re-birth over long periods of time, every 26,000 years. This is called the Long Count. Throughout the Mayan culture and to this day the stars have had a huge part to play in their outlook on the cycles of earth, harvest, socio-structures and of course the measurement of these, and more importantly the measurement of time.
The Maya of today still equate The Olmec symbol, that represents an important ‘cleft-like’ feature of the Milky Way, with the Underworld Portal. This Great Cleft or “dark-rift” in the Milky Way, which looks like a black road running down its middle, is called the “Road to the Underworld”. At the end of this current cycle our planet will be in total alignment with this Cleft, signalling the end of the current B'ak'tun 13th cycle. The Mayan peoples however would not have assumed this to mean the end of the world but would have had great celebrations for the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.
However the cycle which we will be finishing on the winter solstice 21/12/2012 is the End of the Mayan B’ak’tun 13 calendar cycle, the last B’ak’tun of the Long Count. Not the end of the calendar as most believe, it just resets itself back to zero and starts the Great 26,000-year Cycle again. We are in the 4th now, according to the Maya.
Esoteric author John Major Jenkins asserted that the Mayan Calendar did actually fall in line with the winter solctas. This date was in line with an idea he terms the “Galactic Alignment”. The Galactic Alignment is the alignment of the December Solstice Sun with the Galactic Equator. This alignment occurs as a result of the Precession of the Equinoxes and this Galactic Alignment only happens once every 26,000 years. (Clever Mayans!)
On the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun should exactly conjoin, ecliptically, with the crossing point of the Galactic Plane, also the exact centre of the Galaxy, which is call the 13th Star sign, Ophiuchus, or the sign of the Serpent!
The Milky Way Galaxy is the inspiration for the symbol of the Ouroboros.
Myth refers to a serpent of light residing in the heavens. The Milky Way is this serpent, and viewed at galactic central point near Sagittarius, this serpent eats its own tail. Some say this sign is clearly depicted on the church and also in the lost book.
Ophiuchus crosses the celestial equator just at the point where the center of the Galaxy meets the Celestial Equator and the Sun is aligned to the centre of the Galaxy and the Sign of Ophiuchus (Ophiuchus’ heart is known as the Black Hole of the Milky Way!).
Is this either a sign in the heavens of the truth and divinity of God and story of Saturn? Or is this where the Bible writers have taken inspiration? I guess the answer for that is left up to each person's individual beliefs.
During this Alignment many things can happen, apparently! We will have 72 hours of darkness (please refer to Bible for huge symbolic reference to the End Times).
Will the Sun and Earth go through a process of Magnetic Pole Reversal? This could spell serious problems for mankind. Electronic malfunctions, birds migrating losing all sense of direction (could bees dying out through confusion of vibration be due to this, or birds falling from the skies?), immune systems of living creatures weakening, increasing Earth crust activity, earthquakes, volcanoes, tectonic movements, floods, landslides. Large asteroids would be drawn to the Earth. Did this happen when the dinosaurs were wiped out??
This brings me nicely on to Planet X a.k.a Nibiru.
As I understand it, Nibiru is a planet whose orbit is now approaching the Earth’s. This planet is flying in from Saturn’s orbit and during 2012 will come very close to the Earth or Mars’ orbit, which could cause violent tidal force interactions, volcanoes, tidal waves; it could send us off-balance or even capture the Earth within its gravitation field and we would freeze when it leaves our solar system.
All of this would depends on the sphere of influence and if Nibiru is of such a mass and comes close enough to Earth to exert gravitational influence. However there are lots of factors which would have to be present before any apocalyptic event was caused by Planet X. It is suggested that the planet is not large enough to hold any substantial mass and we may be blocked by the Sun from any gravitation influence.
Now, I cannot finish without mentioning the Bible.
Many religious enthusiasts believe in the ‘End of Days’. Most believed that God’s wrath is let out upon the earth, unleashing plagues, earthquakes, hailstorms, fire, famine, meteor storms, lack of drinking water and more. This is called the Tribulation, and this is when the Anti-Christ will gain influence and power.
The Armageddon will soon follow this, which is a terrible war provoked by the Anti-Christ where most of the world’s population will die in a series of violent events as prophesied in Daniel 9, Matthew 24, and Revelations 4:19.
At this point with the world in tatters, nearly all human life is lost, apart from the armies of the Anti-Christ. This is when Jesus Christ returns to Earth and destroys those armies and all those who have been faithful to Him and accept him as their Saviour are welcomed into the New, Eternal Kingdom of God here on Earth, and the Anti-Christ, false prophet and Satan are thrown into the pit of fire for eternity.
Interestingly enough, the story continues to state that the devil must be released one more time after Christ’s 1000-year reign. At this time a final battle takes place with the devil losing and being vanquished into the lake of fire forever.
So there we are guys, a summary of all good things to look forward to, if any of it is to be believed. I myself do actually think that something is happening with our world — I would tend to be leading towards a Pole Reversal. But I have always believed in God. (Not in a religious way, more totally and in a personal spiritual way. I put my faith in righteousness, kindness and love and that there is a God who is utterly divine.) And I think that although we may see something happening which has a scientific name and is mathematically correct, why can that then not be attributed to God?
But whatever it is, if anything that will occur in the next 2 years, I do know that mankind cannot carry on at the rate that it currently is. Not a month passes without some natural disaster. The East is in complete meltdown, which means that we are too, via the domino effect. Our socio-structures are balanced on a knife edge and the planet is starting to kick off, big style! I do hope that this is not the case and I am just being a worrier (my plan is to start buying lots of beans!), but I guess that only time will tell. So I guess... let the Countdown commence!
N.B. Oh and for those of you who enjoy the informativeness of the American Government and their agencies please enjoy this factual, enlightening take on the issues above.

Having produced a feature-length documentary film and edited a book on the topic, I thought I’d interviewed or researched most of the important public figures who have something interesting or informative to say about everyone’s current favorite end-times date, December 21, 2012.
Unfortunately I didn’t know that George Lucas is one of the many people who think the end of the current 5,125-year cycle of the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar on that date will mark an apocalyptic event. The Toronto Sun is reporting that Lucas revealed his fears to Seth Rogen of all people:
Funnyman Seth Rogen was left stunned by a recent encounter with his moviemaking hero George Lucas — because the Star Wars director spent 20 minutes telling him the world would end in 2012.
Rogen was left speechless when Lucas and Steven Spielberg joined a movie meeting he was a part of – but the encounter has left him worried his life will be over next year.
He recalls, “George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it.
“He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ’My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry…’
“I first thought he (Lucas) was joking… and then I totally realized he was serious…

Sorry, apocalypse lovers and good news for others: the world will not end in 2012! So, if you made plans for December 21st, 2012 – don’t break them just yet.
That’s the day the apocalypse is supposed to occur according to the Mayan calendar. It turns out the calculations may be incorrect and the world might not end after all.
Errors made in calculating the Mayan calendar means it may be inaccurate according to a recent textbook. That means those waiting for the world to end on Dec. 21, 2012 might be in for a big disappointment.
Even worse, if the calculations turn out to be incorrect, believers will have no way of knowing when the world really will end.
A new critique, published as a chapter in the new textbook “Calendars and Years II: Astronomy and Time in the Ancient and Medieval World” (Oxbow Books, 2010), argues that the accepted conversions of dates from Mayan to the modern calendar may be off by as much as 50 or 100 years.

What is this strange ring that has been developing on the Sun?
Sunspot 1112, located in the southeast quadrant, has been the source of a giant filament that is currently stretching 400,000 km across the surface of the Sun.
However, today, there appears to be development of a enormous circular ring which looks to be linking with the huge magnetic filament of sunspot 1112. Most of today's various wavelength images of the Sun all show this feature over at the SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) - NASA website.
SpaceWeather.com today reports,
A vast filament of magnetism is cutting across the Sun's southern hemisphere today. A bright 'hot spot' just north of the filament's midpoint is UV radiation from sunspot 1112. The proximity is no coincidence; the filament appears to be rooted in the sunspot below. If sunspot flares, it could cause the entire structure to erupt. This active region merits watching...
What concerns me is that if indeed this is a huge magnetic filament nearly encircling the entire Sun, it is now currently directly facing the Earth. If sunspot 1112 does erupt, could the entire filament explode into a massive CME?
This particular phenomenon will be all over in a few days as it rotates around the Sun, but it serves to remind us that there are more and more events happening on the Sun as we transit into the next solar cycle maximum (peaking ~ 2012 into 2013).

Interview with Carl Calleman, expert on the Mayan calendar and the Ninth Wave coming up!
New Years is a time for both reflection and looking toward the future.
And when looking toward the future you can’t help but think about the supposed end of the world on December 21, 2012. The people who believe in our apocalyptic demise attribute the disaster to the end of the ancient Mayan calendar.
Hmm. Have you ever tried high-fiving a Mayan? It’s pretty hard considering they’re all dead. Maybe Mayans aren’t the best source for information on the survival of the human race. The lesson being: Don’t believe the hype. People don’t know shit.
… I spent several memorable afternoons during my senior year of high school with a modest middle-aged woman in a nearby town. It was a wholesome relationship during the fall of 1999. She would puff Virginia Slims and roll joints while I constructed various pieces of furniture in her new house.
“Put together this computer table,” she’d say.
“Two joints. One before and one after.”
And the computer table was built. Sometimes we’d watch professional wrestling if there was nothing left to construct.
But the woman was troubled; She fell victim to the oversaturated coverage of the Y2K scare and worried her ganja pipeline would somehow be affected. She feverishly began saving roaches. Hundreds of them.
And as the clock crept past midnight and into the year 2000 – nothing happened. The joint-roller and I were stuck smoking half-burnt schwag for the rest of the winter. The lesson being: Don’t believe the hype. People don’t know shit.
… Ten years ago some of the world’s most opinionated minds were also dead wrong about a lot of things. I have the January 2000 Collector’s Edition Playboy Magazine to prove it.
Page 53 - Column by James R. Peterson: We should downsize airport security. Has anyone noticed that the bad guys blow up buildings and buses? Ouch - sort of negates his idealistic stance on the legalization of prostitution. Peterson didn’t think much like a terrorist, otherwise he might’ve realized planes were just buses flying through the air.

Page 195 - Harry S. Dent Jr. predicts the Dow could hit 41,000 in 2008. Currently the Dow stands around 10,500. Oops.
The lesson being: Don’t believe the hype. People don’t know shit.
… This December I went back to that nearby town of my youth, walked up the steps of the joint roller’s house and knocked on her door. She answered in a mangy robe full of burns and stains. Her Virginia Slims had been replaced with Marlboro Reds. A wine glass seemed glued to her hand.
“Do you remember me?” I asked. “I helped put together your furniture. Jason.”
She swayed and stared hard at me.
“We watched Hulk Hogan beat Ric Flair for the Intercontinental Belt,” I continued.
Her eyes lit up: “You had the pierced dick, right?”
I shook my head. We shared a frown before I walked away, never wanting to smoke roaches or listen to fortunetellers or watch John Cusack movies ever again.New Years is a time for both reflection and looking toward the future. And when... more
