    Will the world end in 2012

    From the Telegraph :

    'Web-bot project' makes prophecy of 2012 apocalypse

    “Web-bot” technology has moved apocalyptic prophecy into the internet age, predicting that the world will end on 21 December 2012.

    Conspiracy theorists on the web have claimed that the bots accurately predicted the September 11 attacks and the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, and that they say a cataclysm of some sort will devastate the planet on 21 December, 2012.
    The software, similar to the “spiders” that search engines use to index web pages, were originally developed in the 1990s to predict stock market movements.
    The bots crawl through relevant web pages, noting keywords and examining the text around them. The theory is that this gives an insight into the “wisdom of crowds”, as the thoughts of thousands of people are aggregated.
    However, the technology was later appropriated for another, more controversial – some say nonsensical – use: predicting the future.
    Its study of “web chatter” is said to give advance warnings of terrorist attacks, and proponents claim that it successfully did so ahead of 11 September 2001. George Ure, one of two men behind the project, says that his system predicted a “world-changing event” in the 60 to 90 days after June 2001.
    Despite the vagueness of this prediction, many believed it to be genuine. Now its makers claim that the technology can predict natural disasters, and that it foresaw the earthquake that triggered the 2004 tsunami, as well as Hurricane Katrina and the devastation that followed.
    Its latest and most sweeping prediction is that 21 December 2012 signals the end of the world, possibly through a “polar shift” – when the polarity of the Earth’s magnetic field is reversed. Believers claim that as well as the bots, the 2012 apocalypse is predicted by the ancient Mayan calendar, the Book of Revelations, and the Chinese text I Ching.

    I am currently marketing a very nice range of tin hats available to TD members for 99 cents plus postage. Effective against polarity shifting events.

    Do your tin foil hats come with a kebab?

    Just that I like my kebabs wrapped in tin foil. And 2012. Couldn't they be original? And 2012 is the start of the tribulations in some revelations predictions, not the end of the world.

    Where do I send my 99 cents?

    Wait, so this 'web bot' picks up on chatter by nutcases who are convinced that the world will end in 2012 because that's when the Myan calendar does (even though Myan's themselves say it's meaningless), and from that it predicts that *shock* *horror* the world will end in 2012??

    I think I'm gonna be needing one of those tinfoil hats...

    Nope, sold both the bike and helmet to CMN!

    He'll be nice, safe, and protected and meanwhile I'm at the mercy of an imminent Apocalypse brought on from the sudden release of energy when the Mayan calendar ends in 2012: precisely nothing happens; and then millions of stupid people the world over implode because it suddenly dawns on them just how stupid they are; so therefore being unable to live with their own stupidity they literally wish themselves out of existence.

    Ironically dooming us all!

    Will the TD amulet protect against racist Saffas trying to rape me?

    Enquiring minds on this board want to know.

    That's confusing.

    We're right now in a crossover. What happens in the next 21 jubilees?

    Take it as a lesson. When forming your own cult, never post someone else's e:mail addy.

    But there are still opportunities out there, have you thought about a temple of the clitorus kinda idea. Supposedly there are a lot of guys trying to find out the secrets of that elusive deity.

    Now endorsed by Tom Sawyer - you will be saved! Check the numbers - it's true (ask your Thai girlfriend and her brother for verification)!
