Thinking Twice About Doomsday

As of today, every living person on earth can be classified into two groups: those who believe that there is no way this planet will face doomsday on December 21, 2012 and those who are doing everything they can to prepare for the end of the world which they truly and wholeheartedly believe will happen in a few months time. The latter group is growing smaller as each day pass-by; more and more believers start to think twice about the doomsday that they have been clamoring about for so many years. As the other group grow in number, the latter shrinks into a mere group of “insane” individuals.

Over the past few years, the supposed end of the world which will apparently happen in five months time have already caused so many heated debates and riots. It has been the subject of so many discussion; it has even been used as a plot in countless cartoons, comics strips and TV shows. Some groups have even started massive campaigns to invite others to support them in building underground dungeons that are meant to “protect” them once the Apocalypse takes place.

The 2012 doom’s day has become a familiar story — one whole year of unlivable condition, famine, diseases, plague and all other “scary” things that the human mind can conceive.  The speculations grew even stronger as the world faced difference natural calamities, take the ever destructive earthquake that happened in Japan two years ago as an example. However, as the supposed doom’s day approaches, it seems that many of those who used to be very passionate about their belief have resorted to living their lives again, now convinced that their fears are basedless.

NASA has even made a conscious effort to explain to the people how this prediction is completely out of context. Science has been so consistent in claiming that the end of this planet will definitely not happen some time soon. Political analysts also say that it will be unlikely that the doom’s day will be triggered by a world war. According to them, the superpowers do not yet have the incentive to launch a world war, at least not in the current year or in next year.

Today, the question on whether the 2012 doom’s day is real or not is already very laughable. Everybody have assumed that no sane person will ever believe that this end will most likely happen. Even those who claim that this Apocalyse is biblical are quieted by their leaders. If there is anyone who still assume the likelihood of this phenomenon, he/she must have definitely became a laughing stock among his/her peers.

This is how transient everything is; at one point, something can be regarded as a fact and many people will spend time and money just to support this alleged “fact”. But no one can really be so sure if this belief will be sustained until it comes to its fruition. This is not new to mankind. We are creatures who are easily swayed by trend and massive propaganda only to be dis-swayed some time in the future.

Now, if you are still thinking twice if the doom’s day is indeed true, I suggest that you do that alone and avoid thinking aloud. December 2012 is too close, and so many people are already waiting to prove you wrong.
