The world ends on 21. December 2012.
Debate Rounds (3)
Let me give you some evidense why the world will end before Christmas this year.
1. The Mayans just didn't predict it.
The Mayans were a savage culture and they did terrible things, but what a lot of people remember them for is the December 21st, 2012 doomsday prediction. The mayans just didn't predict it the I Chang (Chinese book of changes), Hinduism, and even the Bible all tend to have their clocks set to this date.
Earthquakes are increasing as we get closer as a matter of fact there was a 7.3 earthquake in Japan just yesterday. http://news.yahoo.com...
3. Solar Storms
Solar storms are increasing incredibly and it's not a good thing as solar storms can destroy the powergrid and it will increase in just a matter of days.
2.Fact, that a 7.3 earthquake was in Japan yesterday, doesn't show that they are increasing. And earthquakes don't end the world, there has been many earthquakes and many earthquakes are to come.
3.Solar activity has a regular cycle, with peaks approximately every 11 years. Near these activity peaks, solar flares can cause some interruption of satellite communications, although engineers are learning how to build electronics that are protected against most solar storms. But there is no special risk associated with 2012. The next solar maximum will occur in the 2012-2014 time frame and is predicted to be an average solar cycle, no different than previous cycles throughout history.
lannan13 forfeited this round.
Pro said that some cultures and whatsoever predicted some things, but this is wrong. The doomsday was never predicted, just some people have spreaded this rumour around and nothing else. And those who have started really believing this have construed all of the things that they know and see as predictions and signs of our world ending. For example: "Oh, the matches are out of stock in our local shop. It must be because the doomsday is coming." It is quite stupid, isn't it?
Pro brought a argument: Earthquakes. He said that earthquakes are increasing, and that there were a 7.3 earthquake in Japan just yesterday.
That DOESN'T show that earthquakes are increasing. It just shows that there was a earthquake in Japan. He didn't really show that they are increasing. And even if they would be increasing, maybe a year from now, they'd start decreasing again, it doesn't really show that the world is going to end.
And the Solar Storms argument is just pure lie. I state that his source for this isn't reliable as solar activity has a regular cycle, with peaks approximately every 11 years. Near these activity peaks, solar flares can cause some interruption of satellite communications, although engineers are learning how to build electronics that are protected against most solar storms. But there is no special risk associated with 2012. The next solar maximum will occur in the 2012-2014 time frame and is predicted to be an average solar cycle, NO DIFFERENT than previous cycles throughout history.
