Now, I have another question for you all...

What would you think if, back in 2005 or 2006, someone told you that Prince William's first son would be announced EXACTLY on December 2012???

At that time, what would you think about this information??

A show called "in search of..." hosted by Spock Nimoy back in the 70's. Great show for it's time.

Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

I remember I heard about the end of the world when I was quite young. I don't remember the circumstances but I do remember talking about it in school in 4th or 5th grade. I thought "it's such a long time from now, I'll be 59 then, an old man". Funny I still remember that. Well, here it is and I don't believe the world will end but here we are. However, the world is not ending but transitioning from how we view ourselves in the universe. The shift is upon us and most people don't even recognize it. HaHaHaHa

Yep! This was my introduction as well. Started my obsession with 12/21... and can probably be blamed for my interest in conspiracy theories.

And thanks to the interwebz...


"Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expresly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen." John Jay, NY,NY - 1787

When the US Constitution was written, the "natural law" that dealt with issues such as nationality and allegiance to a sovereign was called "the law of nations." Modernly, we call this "international law." In 1788, the preeminent codification, description and explanation of "the law of nations" was a work written by Emerich de Vattel, entitled THE LAW OF NATIONS, or principles of the law of nature applied to the conduct and affairs of nations and sovereigns. The Founders were not only familiar with de Vattel's treatise, they relied on it extensively when they wrote laws and Constitutions (of their respective States, not just the Federal one.)

In Section 212 of de Vattel's treatise, he states the following:

§ 212. Of the citizens and natives.

“The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

I just finished watching it, it's at the very very end right before the end credits.

Re: does anyone else remember the first time they heard of the mayan 2012 prophecy?
when I was a kid about 7-8 years old. (I am 30 now)

it was on a tv show called prophecies or something..
it showed what would happen dec 21, 2012. Apparently all the appliances and electronics will try to attack us and same with all our pets and animals lol

it scared the shit out of me though!!!

are you serious?! i had a dream when i was a kid that the appliances came to life and were trying to attack me.

When I was 9, a movie about machines coming to life and killing us came out...

It was called Maximum Overdrive. ;p
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7314441


There was even an earlier similar Twilight Zone episode:

The Twilight Zone (Episode #40): “A Thing About Machines” (airdate 10/28/60)

The Plot: Your machines are going to kill you.

The Goods: This season is quickly shaping up to be the one where Rod Serling played around with the structure of science fiction and the self-aware nature that writing in the genre can start to form week after week. If season 2 is seen as the sequel to season 1, Serling took to commenting on his own work (and the work of the other writers of course).

So what does he begin his tale of conspiratorial machinery with? Why, a broken television set, of course.

Bartlett Finchley (Richard Haydn) lives in a gorgeous home with all the modern comforts, but he’s pretty damned sure they are all out to get him. In a conversation with his television repairman (a grinning Barney Phillips who seems to return week after week for a new broken machine), he reveals his ultra-Luddite sensibilities by talking down to the day laborer, but when the door is shut behind him, he almost loses his mind with literal rage against his machines.

What works so well throughout this story is that it’s a ridiculously common sentiment. Finchley is played like a lunatic (who happens to be right), but we’ve all been in a position where our television reception is crappy, our cell bars are down to zero, and our computer freezes for no ascertainable reason. This is the glimmering, aureate age of the future – machines surround us, but we know very little about them.

So, yes, this episode is a great-great-grandfather of The Matrix. Finchley’s television might be displaying visions of Latin dancers who threaten him, but the machine itself isn’t going to stand up and attack (let alone build an elaborate system for control). But the idea is there. Machines are something we depend on, but with a profound lack of understanding, how can we ever really claim that we have conquered them?

On the other hand, his electric razor definitely attacks him. So stick to that five-bladed manual monstrosity.

Back to the original question, I discovered my dad's book Chariots of the Gods when I was 11 in 1969, I believe it mentions 2012 ... or it piqued my interest and from there I was led to Edgar Cayce and all things Glpish.

2001-02 when going to college.. Had and AMAZING "outside the box" type teacher.. She was old, quite old.. 70 ?? Anyway, the first day of Ancient History class she told us, "forget everything you EVER knew about history." We went on to spend months studying JUST the Sumerians, cuneiform, Egyptians, Maya and Aztec etc.. Basically any culture that dates back to the beginning of "known" history.. She even touched on the "giants." Fun FUN class..
