Wait, there’s more! Indian guru Kalki Bhagavan, an incarnation of the god Vishnu, has said since 1998 that “2012 marks the end of the Kali Yuga, or degenerate age.” Sources say that 15 million of India’s people agree with the writings of Bhagavan.
I am compelled to continue. There is growing belief among some in the United States and the West that an apocalyptical alignment is coming between the Sun and a supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy which will create havoc on earth. Take courage. Most discount this particular theory as “bunk.”
Here’s the last, and maybe the best. Science and History Channel viewers know that a “gamma ray burst” occurring at the death of a star, even in a vastly distant region, will end all life on earth. This doesn’t happen often, every several billion years, but if such a burst were to occur there would be no warning (the burst coming toward us at the speed of light), and all life on earth would be extinguished. While media outlets haven’t said much about the gamma ray burst scenario, there is speculation that the red supergiant Betelgeuse will nova at some time in the foreseeable future. Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse! The imagination reels!
There is cause for optimism. Many fight fans worldwide witnessed the non-title welterweight boxing match in the Philippines on Saturday night, December 9, between Manny Pacquiao, and the Mexican Pride, Juan Manuel Marquez. It has been noted that presidential contender Mitt Romney was on hand for the bout, in support of Pacquiao. Pacquiao has been plagued for years by an odd jinx; his victories are unexplainably followed, exactly 13 days later, by catastrophic disasters. 13 days after a Pacquiao victory in 2006, a tragic stampede brought loss of life to Manila. Then, 13 days after that, the Philippians were swept by terrible mudslides. Mount Mayon erupted 13 days after a Pacquaio victory. And exactly 13 days after yet another Pacquiao win, a devastating explosion ripped through a Glorietta shopping complex at Ayala Center in Makati, Metropolitan Manila. Consider then, dear reader, that December 21, the predicted day for the end of everything-on-Earth, is precisely 13 days beyond the December 9th match. Good fortune! In round six of the matchup, Juan Manuel Marquez scored an overhand right punch to the face of Pacquaio who went nose-first down in the ring, where he lay motionless for several seconds. Marguez won the contest on the strength of this knockout punch. Since Pacquiao lost, disaster may have been averted!
