There is one strange thing I have noticed as I have been watching various prepper websites, youtube channels and Religious Cults. It is that during 2011 up until 2012 you couldn’t spit without seeing something about the Mayan 2012 Apocalypse.
Was the 2012 Apocalypse only geared toward prepper sites? Did I imagine the entire thing? I don’t think so. All of the more mainstream media sources have maintained their stories on this event. But as far as prepper sites, everything seems to have vanished.
Not a single mention of it anywhere.
I don’t think that it’s me, I have a pretty good memory. I remember where I was at 12 pm December 21st 2012, I was working right in the middle of the “hood.” Y2k I was visiting my grandparents. 9/11 I watching the news and then headed out to a terrible temp job.
November 9th, 1989 Fall of the Berlin Wall, I noticed it and then started watching cartoons.
If I can remember where I was during all these events, surely I remember the absolute metric ton of prepper sites that catered to this “Apocalypse.”
Maybe, I am not as true a believer of Apocalypse as I should be. After all, some of the religious cults have had their predictions of Apocalypse come true.
Jim Jones predicted an apocalypse for his people and that came true.
Props to Jim Jones for making it happen.
“Son of God” David Koresh’s prediction of fire and doom came true for 81 of the true believers of the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas.
Heaven’s Gate literally bet their balls that the Apocalypse would happen when the Haley Bop comet came near the earth. They even still have a website up. Now that is dedication. Of course, it rips out your eyes and makes you sick to the stomach to look at it…. Unless you are insane.
But why take down all of your info on the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse? Why is it the red-headed stepchild of Doomsdays?
Y2K is still mentioned, even if it has been rebranded as “EMP Armageddon.”
Is everyone embarrassed about 2012? Has it become the pleasantly plump girl that prepper sites drunkenly banged at the office party?
I just don’t get it. It was a great End of the World scenario. It captured the public imagination.
One thing is certain, a new end of times prediction needs to found and soon. I personally can’t wait to see the people coming out of doomsday bunkers in the next few years only to be sent scurrying back.
