Across the world people are prepping for the end of the world this Friday, 12.21.12. Based on my research, nothing will happen...yet. There may be random little events in isolated areas. For instance, there could be an earthquake or a volcanic eruption. However, an event or two doesn't mean it's the end of the world. As civilized people, we should relax on 12.21.12, and allow the crazy people to do what comes naturally.
The only event that could happen is Basher al-Assad destroying his city, Damascus. Predicting his downfall is a foregone conclusion. The exact date could happen soon.
Rest assured, all of the Seals of Revelation need to open and then we need to survive through the final seven years of Hell. Based on my calculations, we have a minimum of ten years before the messiah would return, regardless of a Rapture viewpoint. There may be tribulations in the meantime. Are you prepared?
What should you do now? What is a minimal level of prepping?
1. Cash: It's wise to have cash on hand at all times. Hurricane Sandy hindered my access to bank funds in Minnesota for a full week. Can you imagine if we have an apocalyptic global event? If possible, maintain two months of cash on hand in an emergency location.
2. Food: Have sixty days of non-perishable food on hand. Any supply-chain issues should be resolved in sixty days. If an event happens, be prepared, and make sure the food is portable.
3. Water: Have alternative water or water purifying/filtering devices available. Chlorine swimming pool tablets work well to render impurities less dangerous. Basic charcoal or cloth filters work well too.
4. Safe House: Determine a location away from the city in case your family needs to relocate temporarily. If cell phones don't work and your family is separated, where will you meet? Determine that location now. If an event happens, you can leave town until the crisis ends.
5. The Golden Rule: Act like civilized people, not the Russians (see below).
Mayan apocalypse mania grips Russia by Mariam Elder, Monday 17 December 2012 09.40 EST
Alexander Kolomeyets, the deputy head of Russia's Association of Independent Psychiatrists, lamented the apocalypse-mania that has gripped his country. "There are people who are prone to mental epidemics and I think that most of them are in our country," Kolomeyets said in an interview with local media in the far eastern city of Khabarovsk.
"What's happening in our country can be a lot scarier than the end of the world – so any negative information sticks. The more primitive the society, the stronger it lends itself to psychological epidemics. I think in this case our country isn't very civilised."
