Keeping the theme from my post about creationists co-opting reality to support their beliefs, let’s quickly visit the 12/21/2012 gang.
Here’s my prediction about that upcoming non-event.
Unless the upcoming movie 2012 is a documentary made in the future and sent back through a wormhole (or put in the mailbox shared by Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves), 12/21/2012 will be so uneventful that it’ll make Y2K look like the Harmonic Convergence.
But when the “planetary alignment” occurs, without the warned-about mayhem, here’s how the 12-ers will spin it:
“YOU DID IT, HUMANITY! You made the shift in consciousness that we needed to avert disaster and have ushered in a new era in global connection and enlightenment.”
This announcement will be followed on 12/22/2012 by a dramatic continuation of the status-quo with the only enlightenment coming from the burning of 2012 books (stock up on ingredients for s’mores!).
Once again, you heard it here first (because, I, too, have come back in time through a wormhole — or through the ham radio transmissions of Dennis Quaid, I can’t tell).
