So here we are again: on the doorstep of another doomsday, and only just over a decade since the last. Difference this time, though, or so they say, instead of being a collapse of our beloved power grid due to poorly designed computer software, the threat we face is a total planetary annihilation. Do we believe it? Will the ground beneath our feet turn against us like it did in the movie? Will fiery mountain-sized stones rain down from the heavens and vaporize us where we stand? Will the oceans rise up out of their basins or the sun vomit hot plasma particles on us? Will it happen?
There’s nothing to fear but fear itself, or at least I’ve heard. Maybe what’s in store for us this time—as was with last time—is nothing more than the morning after. Are we all going to wake up on December 22, 2012, throw another log on the fire to warm our winter-chilled bones, and mock the previous day’s non-events over our coffees, fried eggs, and bacon as we did on January 1, 2000? Are we going to feel like we’ve been duped all over again? Are we going quietly thinking in our minds that we’re relieved we were duped all over again?
Science would have you believe the latter of these two scenarios is the more likely, but one might be wise to keep in mind that science doesn’t, in fact, have all the answers. Other than some highly questionable theories, science can’t even explain away the how and the when of the Great Pyramid at Gaza.
Like myself a lifetime ago, most kids take what we’re taught in school as hard fact. It’s ingrained in us, as the young of the species to do so. We accept—without question—that our teachers are telling us the truth. The truth is, however, they’re only teaching us what they’re told to.
Also like most, I was taught the typical mainstream theories about the creation of these ancient megaliths: constructed in about 20 years; built as Egyptian tombs; made by workers using only braded ropes, palm-held stone striking tools, and copper chisels….
These ancient people—just fresh out of the Stone Age—hadn’t even invented the wheel yet, but, because I had faith in the educators who were teaching me, I swallowed every bit of it. Or at least I did back then. Later in life, though, I just couldn’t let it go. The answers I was given as facts just didn’t add up. If, for instance, with the modern technology and engineering we have at our disposal we can only barely pull this off today, how did they accomplish it with the severe lack of tools they had some four and a half thousand years ago?
Along came the internet and its trove of information to save the day. How? It gave me access to theories not taught in school,and it taught me that when evidence is discovered which contradicts the mainstream ideas, science will often-times omit it in an effort to keep the accepted beliefs … well, accepted.
“Aw yes.” you say. “He’s a conspiracy theorist.” And I am. I am, and I’ll be the first to admit it. But before you drop a book of judgment on me, watch this documentary. It details water erosion evidence discovered by a man named John Anthony West that potentially dates the Great Sphinx at some twelve thousand years old. In case you haven’t been keeping score: four and a half thousand years ago the Egyptians were using copper chisels and palm-held stone mallets. What, I wonder, did their toolkit consist of nearly than thrice that long ago.
You won’t, of course, find this information in any schoolbook, but I assure you: once you see what West is pointing out, you’ll never unsee what West is pointing out. It’s undeniably there, but, like I said, it contradicts mainstream theories.
So … in conclusion I ask you this. If science doesn’t know what happened in our own past, how can we accept it has the ability to tell us what’s going to happen in our future. If science doesn’t explore every lead, for that mater, how can we accept—even if it does have foreknowledge of events to come—that it’ll even be forthcoming with it? Will the world end on December 21, 2012…?
