Thousands of Dutch Prepare for 2012 Apocalypse, According to Report


Thousands of Dutch Prepare for 2012 Apocalypse, According to Report

Theworld will end in 2012 — or so say thousands in the Netherlandspreparing for the apocalypse in four years, the Dutch-languagenewspaper de Volkskrant reported Tuesday.

The paper spoke tothose who believe the 2012 date signals the impending end ofcivilization and are stocking up on emergency supplies, equipment andlife rafts in case of flooding, United Press International reported.

Whiletheories vary as to why 2012, in particular, is believed by some torepresent the world's end, most say it is the end of the Mayancalendar. Some are optimistic about the apocalypse, saying they nolonger want to live in the modern world.

"You know, maybe it'sreally not that bad that the Netherlands will be destroyed," PetraFaile told de Volkskrant. "I don't like it here anymore. Takeimmigration, for example. They keep letting people in. And then we haveto build more houses, which makes the Netherlands even heavier. Thecountry will sink even lower, which will make the flooding worse."

2012? That's not fair. I won't even be able to collect social security before 2017.

Think 2012 is going to be about as eventful as 2000 was.

I'm hoping there will at least be fireworks. ;)

If you have an interest in astronomy, a good telescope, and clear skies - there will be "fireworks".

2012 is more about a change for the new than the end of the world. Even then, it'll be gradual. I don't believe anything happens overnight. It's just not how the universe works. Unless there is a collision of heavenly bodies, but those are extremely rare.
