I know it's strange to hear these words from a Martian, but get a grip people!

Imagine my surprise when I heard on CNN today that both NASA and the Griffith Observatory had found it necessary to set up an office and a website respectively to field 2012 concerns. The phone is ringing off the hook.

These are just books. Just people making money off of scaring people. Like horror movies. It's basically fiction with one or two tiny bits of history in it. Tiny.

People have been predicting the end of the world since the world began. Every body with any sense knows the world doesn't just end one day; it just peters out over time, like a big balloon with a leak in it.

I would like to hear the opinions of earthlings on this timely (and timeless) subject.

Earthlings like to go for roller coaster rides - to get scared in a safe way. It is a form of entertainment.

We, Alpha Centaurii, do not indulge in such frivolity. So it's time you Martians bug off. Other wise it'll be too late when we take over.

Heck, according to at least one self-described expert, it will be all over before 2012. Harold Camping, of Family Radio, is certain that Judgment Day is scheduled for May 21, 2011. You can get all the details here: http://www.familyradio.com/. If you click on the "Judgment Day" button, a pop-up will appear explaining Mr. Camping's reasoning, which consists of pulling a number of otherwise unrelated passages from the Bible to "prove" that God will destroy the world exactly 7,000 years after the beginning of Noah's flood, which (he knows for sure) occurred in 4990 BC. 4,990 plus 2011 minus 1 equals 7,000. (He carefully subtracts the 1 because there was no Year Zero.)

Of course the only people who will be taken up in the Rapture are listeners to and believers in Family Radio. The churches have (according to Mr. C) gone far away from the word of God and will be destroyed.

Here's a link to the Griffith Observatory web site on 2012. http://www.griffithobs.org/exhibits/special/2012.htmlSec. 123

Shoot, I thought this was an election year post. Who cares what some looney toon thinks about anything?
