iMissyRae 2.0: Civilization Turned Annihilation?

We've all seen commercials for the upcoming movie 2012 on TV screens everywhere.

The movie's trailers consist of the usual crowd teasers -- fatal explosions, audio pulsation, and cataclysmic disaster. Throw that into a pot full of panic and you have yourself the ultimate end of the year movie.

Set to be released on November 13th, 2009, director
Roland Emmerich, who has an extensive background in disaster movies, some being The Day After Tomorrow (2004) and Godzilla (1998), has again directed a thriller meant only to entertain the thought of worldly extinction.

But what makes this movie different? Sure the story line is compiled of fictional characters and settings, but in all realization, the event set to happen in the movie has a history.

When the Mayans were still in existence, they predicted a time of great change for the world: December 21st, 2012, otherwise known as doomsday. Though the Mayans didn't make any prophetic accusations, many speculate that this day will in fact be the end of life as we know it.

The 2012 phenomenon has been under close research and many sources including the prophetic texts from Nostradamus and The Book Of Revelation in the Bible, clearly describe an event similar to an apocalyptic catastrophe. However, no specific texts have confirmed the actual "end of the world" being in 2012.

However, there are numerous theories linked to 2012 describing what exactly will happen in this fateful year. Some predictions include the idea of solar flares, super volcanic eruptions, and even planet collisions.

But Missy, why blog about the end of the world? Isn't the whole situation a bit exaggerated?

Okay so the whole human extinction trend is a bit old news but after watching The Nostradamus Effect on the History Channel, I can't quite grasp the thought of dying in three years (and counting). The whole idea seems silly and vague yet I still ponder the situations we are supposedly "destined" to encounter, and as we travel forward, society's mood towards this phenomenon grows more anxious.

Will we die? Will every species on the planet cease to exist? Will mankind have made it this far to see the world fall apart? The facts.. well there aren't any. All we have are ancient prophecies and our own intuitions, but if you happen to be sleeping, eating, or even partying on this fateful day and nothing happens.. THEN we can just laugh it off at our ten year reunion.
Until then, beware! You never know when destiny will sneak up on you and demolish your species.
