i know that people say that due to the increase in news across the planet we (we?!) tend to hear about more than we would have heard about in the past but it just seems to be happening ALL the time. just spain today! 2 big ones! it actually does freak me out

Tell me about it! I am living in Christchurch, New Zealand. In the last 10 months we have had to huge earthquakes (7.2 and 6.3), more than 5000 aftershocks so far. Last week there was a tornado in Auckland, and severe floods in the Hawke's Bay. That is only one country! I won't start with volcanoes and earthquakes in Chile, more earthquakes and tsunami, and nuclear scare in Japan, floods and fires in Australia, now Spain... What next???

i used to be a "god botherer" as people here say but i opted out for various reasons yet now im a bit as things seem to be out of control! i don't think that even the most sensible close minded person could argue that the natural disasters are on the increase, massively

It doesn't scare me particularly as most of these quakes have been 'predicted' for some time and we hear more about it because there's more people living in areas that every few thousand years become a little dicey. The planet is always changing. My sciency friends know all the ins and outs and they don't seem too concerned (though obviously its horrific for anyone involved).
Another part of me thinks its just Mama Nature showing us who's boss and what she's capable of if we don't buck our ideas up.
Actually, its a bit scary isn't it? I shouldn't have watched the Time Team Atlantis special last night either.

aldiwhore (awesome name btw!) the atlantis programme spooked me, i had to have an extra glass of wine (hic). my good friend is OBSESSED with the 2012 theory, i have looked into it quite a lot and it does make scary sense but of course we have to bear in mind that planetary alignments have happened zillions of times before. apparently the last big one was the one that knocked out the dinosaurs (sp). I guess when "we" are in the time frame "we" tend to project it all upon ourselves. who knows

When in doubt I turn to Prof Cox, and he says we're okay, at the moment, in general.
I don't want to get into theories because then I come over all funny, although I am planning a MASSIVE Christmas 2011 because well, it may be out last. If not, it'll be even bigger in 2012!

She's a massive freaking LizardLady with scary eyes and no soul.
Maybe IABU to think her extinction wouldn't be a bad thing. I'm usually rather fluffy too, part of the reason I don't like her, she makes me have bad thoughts.
Anyway.... back to Ma Earth's vengence!

Isn't millenium theory based around the idea that Revelation and all its nastiness is due around 2032? The time that this planet has a natural reshuffle anyway? Also that until 'we' recognise that this planet is a 'being' in its own right and can fight back if we smother it, we're all doomed? Or did I read that in a bad novel that I bought at a bargain price from the Banana Book Shop?
I get a bit muddled, which is nice, as any fear only lasts until the next novel/leaflet/poster I see.
