I’ve been paying close attention to the post-2012 activities of 2012 activists, and this one caught me by surprise…
Ostensibly an exercise in leveraging a popular meme for profit purposes only, the “official” Dec 21 2012 site has now been revived using the most generic cop out – the change has already begun, you just haven’t noticed….
I think the site’s latest menu speaks loudly:
The last 6 items are fear-based, primarily fear of authority & fear of those who are different. Not bad survival strategies, but not great if you wish to fit into current-day society.
Click on The Racial Divide and you get to read this:
You have the NAACP. You have BET. If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we’d be racists. If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we’d be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to ‘advance’ OUR …
I’m generally not a fan of theories disguised as fiction, and not a fan of prophecy either (too much to wade through to find anything real, and too hard to determine you have found it).
That’s two reasons why Cosmic Locusts by J.J. Keene is one of the many 2012-related books I failed to read prior to last month. But when I read it last night, I was riveted. Aside from the Biblical aspects, I feel he and I are on the same wavelength. Several things stood out:
He describes a suburban meteor storm – a recurring dream I had as a child, and the only “prophecy” I have ever had
He describes “dark comets”. His book was written in 2002, before the idea made the media.
The story revolves around a sun-grazing comet discovered in 2008, that would have an Earth encounter on Oct 3, 2012. C/2012 S1 (ISON) is a sun-grazing comet …
Pane Andov, from Macedonia, is well known for his extensive presentations within posts at various forums – I was one of the moderators that let him get away with it, and I saw a presentation he gave in Melbourne a few years back. Like Geryl, he comes across as genuine, but he lacks a BS detector. Like Wilcock he latches onto odd and hard to believe science from “legitimate” scientists.
At his website he says:
I received high number of emails from people all over the world, asking questions, attacking that is was all a fraud from the beginning, it was all about generating funds, spreading fear etc. [paneandov.com]
His excuses are at the start of the post, what follows is mostly copy’n’pasted from his previous work:
From DAY ONE always and I mean always everywhere on my websites, on everything that I have written it was clearly stated: Information purposes only, just my …
Patrick Geryl became quite famous in his home country (Belgium), had a best selling book in Poland and frequently appeared in the media worldwide telling people that, according to his calculations, doomsday would certainly occur on Dec 21, 2012. I placed a pair of his articles on this website before he had his own web presence, and it seems likely that this was how movie director Roland Emmerich learned of Patrick’s work.
I never understood the math of Patrick’s work, or the science. But as with the forum, I figured that everyone had a right to be heard, just in case someone cracked the mystery of 2012. His enthusiasm was such that he would have inspired thousands of people to be wary of 2012, and many would now be preppers. That is a fine achievement.
Unfortunately Patrick’s grand plans for survival communities in South Africa (Drakensberg Mountains, where the arks of the …
So here are the first few paragraphs of one of the many, many articles that have taken the cheap and easy shot, laughing at survivalists who were motivated by the Mayan end date. With my responses in RED
Without wishing to sound too smug, I think we can predict the menu for the next five years at Robert Bast’s ‘Survive2012’ Australian hideaway: tinned beans, tinned beans, bottled water and more tinned beans.
Not at all. 80% of our survival supplies are foodstuffs and water that are part of out everyday diet. The pasta, rice, tinned beans/tomatoes/fruit, ketchup, salt, crackers and so on will be rotated. I’m not so poor that I will solely feed my family our emergency food.
The same goes for thousands of others who had expected to be the only remnants of today’s scheduled termination of the human race. Like Bast, a well-known ‘survivalist’ and online prophet of doom, they …
As if the End Of The World (and associated hullabaloo) wasn’t stressful enough, we are moving out of the city, to spend a couple of years (at least) at our safe spot. Just a few days from now. Yep, while juggling media appearances I was packing boxes. I wonder how this past week would rate on a stress meter?
The timing is more to do with school years and family visits than the doomsday we just dodged – in case you were wondering why we would move after Dec 21 and not before. Plus, the house was only officially finished a few days ago. Oh yeah, I’ve been dealing with banks and builders as well.
So I won’t be posting much in the next week. But then I’ll get cracking on the backlog of things I figure are 2012-relevant but I have yet to write about.
As I have been saying, I consider …
A few points:
I phoned them prior and asked to cancel the interview – I had literally been up all night and wasn’t exactly on the ball – not surprising given that I virtually kicked off this meme 12 years ago
I didn’t know the questions in advance
Presumably the aim of the TV folk was to have a giggle, but for me it was an opportunity to let preppers know that their preparations weren’t in vain
I don’t know, but predict that no other 2012ers have admitted they were wrong on TV. And I never said the world would end (as we know it) but that we should merely prepare, just in case.
I’ll be on these for the next 6+ hours, for updates and questions:

If you have my phone number, please don’t phone, I’m still doing plenty of media interviews on it.
Courtesy of Google Translate is an interview from last night with El Pais, Spain’s #1 newspaper. Obviously the translation isn’t great, so it is for entertainment purposes only. I love the headline
“I believe in the Mayan prophecy when I’m in the shower”
One of the books most vilified by the scientific community in recent years Robert Bast life changed. This New Zealander, now 47, ran in the mid-nineties with a copy of Fingerprints of the Gods , where the colorful journalist Graham Hancock is expanding on the origin of men and civilizations that supposedly preceded ours and we do not know because, according to him, the Earth has experienced great cataclysms that destroyed them. Among these pages, Bast gave to what became the obsession of his life: the Mayan apocalypse.
There is the possibility that now, fifteen years later, Bast is a leading architect of the alleged Mayan prediction has become a worldwide phenomenon . It is often said that …
David Wilcock was, last I heard, about to bring about mass arrests of the global financial “negative elite”. From the way he spoke, it was on the verge of happening. Of course all bar his most ardent followers presumed he was either terribly misled, or misleading us.
There is abundant evidence that this group is real — and will soon be defeated. Major changes are about to happen in the world.
We have proven that a small group of international bankers have seized control of the planet and its resources. Their plan has been in place for 300 years, and was followed with ruthless efficiency.
The difficulty of unseating this group is extreme, due to their penetration into all aspects of our society — including the media, the government and the judiciary.
Nonetheless, it appears that they are about to be overthrown by an international coalition of 138 nations — who have banded together …
I saw David Wilcock give a long talk promoting his new book The Source Field Investigations. During that talk he proudly mentioned how many references his book had – linking his ideas to legitimate scientific studies and news items. His talk was good, but some of the scientific studies he brought up were a bit hard to believe – so I ordered the book so I could check them for myself. I have trusted that every reference is real, but I have looked into the worthiness of some that stood out as perhaps bogus.
The four examples below are indicative of how Mr Wilcock is willing to mix in rubbish with real science to help make his case. To be authentic, he needs to make less bold claims and upgrade his BS detector.
BTW, The Source Field Investigations is actually an excellent book, uniting many esoteric ideas and ancient mysteries to come …
The question of a 2012 doomsday throws up numerous responses, but typically:
It’s all Mumbo jumbo
If I die, I die, whatever…
My religion doesn’t factor in such a thing
I’m too old to care
I’d be embarrassed to be connected to a movement that failed
The reality is that sooner or later, a culture (if it lasts) will face a physical disaster. Indisputable!
So, what could go wrong?
Power Grid Failure – via solar storm, acknowledged by NASA. Way more serious than it first sounds. And ancient cultures might have tracked low latitude auroras.
Flu Pandemic – wasn’t a complete tragedy previously because it caught people unawares. These days, nobody will leave their homes = a peculiar disintegration of society.
Mini-Ice-Age – despite all the alarms of a global warming, the Sun is suggesting it will be quiet for a very long time.
Self-fulfilled Prophecy – virtually every religion has powerful men who are actively wishing for a religious apocalypse, …
Note: I haven’t asked for David’s opinion directly, as I am sure he is way to busy bringing the world’s financial hoodlums to justice.
This is the best I can determine from multiple rambling posts on Mr Wilcock’s Divine Cosmos site. If anyone can find a succinct version of what he believes (regarding 2012), please let me know.
The first port of call is the article titled Will There Be a “Quantum Awakening” in December 2012? From the title it is easy to predict the prediction (new age happiness), but you have to wade through a lot of content. Here’s my summary:
starts off with quite a long history – the last 2o years of David Wilcock. Not many authors preface their articles in such a manner…
an internal link brings forth an astronomical image with cubical properties which he says is connected to tornado-shaped vortexes, Planck’s constant, fractals, the Law of Attraction and …
Although I was well pleased that Whitley Strieber responded to my 2012 question – it felt like a cop-out:
The War for Souls was a work of fiction. While I do think that there is a great deal of change unfolding presently, I don’t see how, in real life, it would relate to the Mayan Calendar. I have no idea what I’ll be doing on December 21. Shopping for Christmas, possibly.
Fortunately we now have the full answer from someone who claims extra-terrestrial contact:
There are now a number of plausible end-of-the-world scenarios, enough to justify thinking seriously, and in a new way, what such an event might mean to us. It’s easy to say, oh, well, that’s it, then, we’ll just be gone.
That might not be the whole story.
Before I discuss why I think that, I’d like to run through a few of these scenarios. I’ll begin by saying that December 21, …
Two experts today (or not, see below).
First is Bob Thiel, Ph.D., a highly regarded researcher, biblical scholar, and one of the world’s foremost authorities on end time prophecies. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of LaVerne, a Master’s degree from the University of Southern California, and a Ph.D. from the Union Institute and University.
1. In a paragraph, what do you think will happen in the 2012 era, in connection with the Mayan Long Count calendar?
In 2012, as my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect teaches, people will claim that the Mayan 2012 date had to do with the dawn to an age of peace as opposed to catastrophe. As far as specific natural and geopolitical events, since my book has come out, at least 23 predictions in it, including weather extremes, have been confirmed. And more will in 2012 as well. While the world cannot and will not end in a flood in …
