At least you'll have it for next year.. Unless the world ends first! :P Haha kidding, I don't think it will.
Please tell me you're joking, 46. The will NOT end in 2012. Are you really going to believe some extinct race of 'prophets' or are you going to believe science? What has the Myans brought to you that science hasnt. Besides the bullshit prediction. I'll take sciences' side.
60- "Science" is not perfect, because people are not perfect. It is often wrong, and unfortunately politically motivated, misrepresented, and falsified at times. No, I don't believe the world will end in 2012, but I can't deny it. Hell, the world might end tomorrow, but I'm not one to say whether it does or not. My point is that sometimes, fully trusting and relying on modern science is just as wrong as fully trusting and relying on ancient beliefs. Plus, even if it was proven that the world will end on a specific date, they wouldn't tell us now, would they? ;)
Just throwing this in there.. I just got back from Mexico where I went to the Ancient Mayan Capital Chichen Itza. 2012 was the main topic. The Mayans NEVER said that the world will end or anything of that sort. What the ACTUALLY said was "the world will change as we know it". It is based on the Mayan calendar. Every several thousand years, the Mayans will destroy everything they own because when all of the planets align, that is a "sign" to restart a new life. They tear down their houses, gardens, temples, etc.. Except the capital. They cover it with new rocks and make the temple even bigger. As a start of "a new life". So the world is not coming to an end. And the Mayans never said that it will. It's just a beginning of a new life for them. Or it would have been if Cortes' wouldn't have killed them off.. But that's a different story for a different time. :)
Thank you desireev, that is true too. I also remember hearing about the earth entering a new phase, (something to do with astronomy) but I'm really not sure, so I would be glad if someone could clarify that. Also, I don't see this as a religion vs. science argument at all. It's more like science vs "science".
Shrooms- it is all a science. On December 21st, 2011, all of the planets, together, are supposed to align. Which will cause an eclipse that will be so powerful that it will knock the earth off it's axis by 1% at the most. Not much really, but when you think about how big Earth is, 1% could change the world up ALOT. Glaciers could melt and cause the ocean to become much larger, therefore, causing floods and continents to collapse in to the ocean. Or cause earthquakes and volcanoes to erupt, etc.. Back to the "prophecy".. The world will not end.. It will change as we know it. Although, the 1% could not be much at all and nothing could happen at all. It's a matter of seeing what happens.. The eclipse will happen though. Don't think I'm telling you it won't.. It has been proven that it has happened, and it will happen again. We just don't know what's gonna happen..
Now you have one for next year!! There's always a bright side. And hey maybe you can decorate it for other holidays.
Why does everyone think suing is the only way to solve things? It's stupid if you ask me. Don't buy from the company again if you don't like the way they do things. Unless you were told when you bought the item that they would deliver in a certain amount of days/hours and they failed to do so then you have no right to complain. I know it's expected that holiday items should arrive in time for the holidays, but that's not always how it works.
