The book in an on itself was ok, if you're into that kind of stuff. The Yellowstone supervolcano is getting ready to blow, and if it does, we can look forward to nuclear winter and 90 percent annihilation. That word does not actually appear on the cover of the book -at least not the edition I borrowed. The message, in a nutshell? On the day after Christmas, a close family friend died of an overdose of narcotics and antidepressants. Journalist and science writer Laurence E Joseph is our incisive and witty guide unravelling the religious, astrological and mystical prophecies behind the potentially earth-shattering events of 2012. Most of the scenarios the author presents as likely fulfillment of the 2012 prediction parallel McCarthy's The Road—a million laughs a minute. It was well written and engaging for the time it came out; however, I feel that if I or anyone else were to read it nowadays, it would have a whole new hokey connotation to it and wouldn't allow readers to even remotely be able to try and take it serious albeit with a grain of salt.
Dear Reader, If there were a chance that opening this book could set off a chain of events that would lead to Apocalypse, to the end of Life as we know it, would you be tempted? There s nothing you can do, but you might as well sit back and enjoy the show. Clearly used but very few minor defects. I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. Enter the prophecies concerning December 21, 2012: a multi-faceted prediction in Mayan culture and repeated in several other cultures throughout the earth dating back many centuries that the earth would experience some great change on this date. One source of protection from excess solar radiation comes from another way the world might end. As an example, Lawrence mentions that the bible foresees greater storm activity leading up to the faithful day. This book will convince you that there is a nonnegligible chance that the year 2012 will be more tumultuous, catastrophic, and, quite possibly, revelatory, than any other year in human history.
Because the year 2012 has no prominent role in anything the ancient Maya ever actually wrote, Stuart takes a wider look at the Maya concepts of time and their underlying philosophy as we can best understand them. Beh, un indebolimento della magnetosfera, se ne parla da un po' del fatto che è possibile che il campo magnetico terrestre si inverta anche se ad ogni modo non andremo a dormire con la bussola che segn Un'indagine che non ha nulla di scientifico sulla fine della civiltà. Giving this book 3 stars for now. About this Item: Broadway, 2008. Though second-hand, the book is still in very good shape.
I'm a bit of a sucker for prophecies and end of the world, so I was eager to read a book about it. May show signs of minor shelf wear and contain limited notes and highlighting. The author is not a crackpot. Is a surge in sunspots going to short out the power grid? But status quo may no longer be an option, for any of us. Pages and cover are clean and intact.
So why read this book? It is in this time that the angels will sound the Trumpets announcing the arrival of the apocalypse and the ultimate Judgment of God will bestowedupon humanity. The Atomic Energy Commission had kindly sent us the plans for a linear accelerator, a device that propels subatomic particles from either end toward the middle and then smashes them into each other head-on at terrific speeds. Possible clean ex-library copy, with their stickers and or stamp s. But status quo may no longer be an option, for any of us. May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text.
May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text. Kita seharusnya menghadapinya dengan lebih serius, tapi bukan dengan panik. Joseph did have a great tone when writing this book, keeping it light even though it's about the possible end of the world. So why read this book? The end is coming, and there's nothing you can do about it. He challenges Christians to respond to these predictions not with fear, but with hope and joy. Some of the material posted there suggests his main worry is the vulnerability of our electrical grid, but he adds it can be protected fairly easily and cheaply for less than half a billion by installing hundreds of surge suppressors.
Pages can include considerable notes-in pen or highlighter-but the notes cannot obscure the text. His research is actually pretty thorough and compelling. On impulse, I googled 2012 and promptly fell down the rabbit hole into a thriving apocalypse subculture. So, if 2012 really is going to be a year of unprecedented catastrophe, what can we do to increase our odds of surviving it? And at the core of this book is Joseph's investigation into the growing number of scientific researchers trying to figure out why conditions around our planet are becoming so bizarre. As it was I didn't finish the last chapter. La fine della civiltà vorrei che arrivasse solo per finire di leggere queste stronzate che i coglioni del gruppo Mondadori continuano a pubblicare, notare bene.
I got sick of it. It seems the Earth is poised to explode from within super-volcanoes ; about to be irradiated by the Sun solar flares, and sunspot minimums that have got more activity than most sunspot maximums ; a rough bit of space that's going to upset the sun that the Solar System is beginning to pass through; lumps of rock or ice, and that we're about due for one the size that extincted the dinosaurs; add to that the fact that a respectable number of ancient civilisations had the date 21st December, 2012 marked in their diaries several thousand years ago and the trouble the planet went to to grow us all over 4,500 billion years all seems a bit pointlesss. From United Kingdom to U. You ll get a good chuckle. Our solar system is entering an energetically hostile part of the galaxy.
India had a power outage so great that seven hundred million people were without electricity for weeks, and people worldwide fear that something of this same magnitude may also strike their area in the very near future. The end is coming, and there's nothing you can do about it. With kind regards, Lawrence E. Thankfully Joseph decries a lot of the stranger scenarios, and even puts a pin in the balloons of a lot of wacko thinking in Apocalypse 2012. Intéressant, étant donné qu'il contient l'une et fait partie de l'autre. I found this to be off-putting. You'll get a good chuckle.
