Winter Solstice

December 22, 2009

Someone wrote in to remind us that Winter Solstice takes place today , Dec 21 2009. The astronomical event takes place when the Earth tilts farthest from the Sun and occurs at precisely 12:47 P.M. EST , or 17:47 UTC.

Besides being the shortest day of the year and the official start of winter, today also marks the astrological shift to the sign of Capricorn.
The word ” Solstice ” is derived from the latin phrase the ” Sun stands still ” and its history goes back to ancient times when special ceremonies and yule festivals were held.

SORRY–THE WORLD ISN’T ENDING IN 2012, by Victor Baines

December 2, 2009

NO–ITS NOT THE END!  THE WORLD WILL NOT END IN 2012, AND NOSTRADAMUS NEVER SAID THAT IT WOULD!  I would say that certain people in film making and the media are getting carried away in their promotional propaganda, placing hype above reality (all for the sake of  box office revenue and TV viewer ratings–and at the expense of truth).

Have you heard the insane rumor that the world is suppose to come to an end in December, 2012?  Let me assure you of this–I have spent 15 years researching the prophecies of Nostradamus and “nowhere in his prophecies does he suggest that the world will end in 2012!” In fact–this has to do with the Mayan Calender expiring–and doesn’t have “jack” to do with Nostradamus!

How dare they lie and intentionally misrepresent the words of a prophet, just so they can try to sell tickets for a “science fiction disaster movie”! Don’t get me wrong, 2012 was a good movie, but come on– its only science fiction.

Even worse,  according to scholars in Mexico, just because the Mayan Calender expires  on December 12, 2012, it does not mean the world is coming to an end.  It simply means the end of one age and the beginning of another one.

One of my duties as the Director of the Nostradamus Society of America is to “seperate bullsh#t from reality” (and “fact from fiction”).  Therefore, I can promise you that Nostradamus stated in his Epistle to his prophecies that the world would end in 3797 (due to burning stones from the heavens hitting the surface of the Earth).  He named this event “the final conflagration”.  This gives us 1788 years until the end of the world (according to Nostradamus).  So don’t hold your breath waiting for the end!

Can you imagine “how stupid” the people who claim the world is going to end in 2012 will feel when they wake-up with hang-overs, on New Year’s Day of 2013–only to realize that the world “didn’t” come to an end?  They will be the”laughing stalks of the world”.

Therefore, although I advocate the right to everyone having an opinion (and expressing it)–I want to make sure that people know what my opinion is–Nostradamus never said the world will end in 2012!   So, let’s don’t confuse the philosophy of the Mayans (with the Prophecies of Nostradamus), or with the bullsh#t of film makers.
