I highly doubt astronomers and scientists have seen even 1% of the universe, let alone 10%. Its really big, you know.

Considering scientists still have no idea just how big the universe is, I think any assessments of how much the of the universe we've "seen" is moot. And I guarantee, its WAY less than 4%.

"Leading scientists and researchers at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, said the experiment was safe. They dismissed as "pure fiction" doomsday predictions that the experiment could create anti-matter, or black holes."

Interesting quote there. Everything I've seen and read has said that the Collider could create black holes or anti-matter, but of course they made sure to put down the "faky-dangery" worries.

Interesting....

according to some scientist in 2012 2 thirds of the population will die from disasters because of a pole shift caused by our solar system crossing the galactic plane of our galaxy and thats only worst case scenario and scientists on think it might happen it's hard to find a proper site that talks about this because there are so many cult sites out there
Edit:forgot to add isn't it funny about the date 2012

This is also funny 10 other dates the world failed to end

According to X-Files, 2012 is when the aliens attack. Also, it's the end of the Mayan calendar.

Haven't we had pole shifts before and we are still alive? I doubt we will all die on 2012.

Not as far as I know, or at least not on the level expected by the Mayan calendar predictions. I dont think it'll be the end of the world, but it should be mentioned that the Mayan calendar system is still more advanced than our own current time keeping systems. They've also been pretty reliable (incredibly so) in terms of their "predictions", at least if you buy into certain interpretations.

I know I was only saying it might happen
If it does happen best case senario is that our electronics are usless for a while...not exactly sure how it all works but thats what my brother was saying

O.K, The Mayan calendar is made up of Katoons; periods used to chart and keep time (and my spelling may be incorect, but it is pronounced Ca-Toon). The first Katoon started when the Mayan people arose. When one Katoon ends another begins. Their calendar ends on the 13th Katoon leaving some to believe this to be the end of the world.

The Mayan also knew through calculations that we live inside what they called (rough translation) the 'Mother Godess' [the Milky Way] and that at the center of this was a demon.

Scientists have only now started to agree that at the center of our galexy is infact a massive black hole and most are stunned at the exacting cosmic knowledge the Maya had which leads most to hold faith with their precice numbers.

What they have also relized is that every 26000 years the magnetic poles of the Earth shift destroying the Ozone layer (not the atmosphere) until the poles settle, where they are regenerated. This happens over a relatively quick time interval.

Scientists have linked this with the phonomana in which the Earth lines up perfectly with the center of our galexy, meaning there will be nothing blocking a straight shot (hypathetically of course) between us and that center in which the gravities may have bizzare effects on the planet. No one knows for sure what will happen because there are no writen records of it in the past (No one is even sure if humans were around back then, although some have argued so). They do know this [the lining up] will occur on December 21, 2012.

I've mentioned this before but I'll add my two cents again, I will not say the world will end in 2012, but I will say that I think the world as we know it will cease allowing for a new to start. The reality is that the world changes every day, some have bigger impacts than others, but life goes on.

People have predicte dthe world will end for years now. The 2012 thing seems awfully BS-y.

The only "End of the World" thing I see from 2012 is people killing themselves over it. They did it on 1999.

Thanks for totally ignoring my post above and the blatant rhetoric.

Now that we've covered that ground lets move on.

lol I am only 17 and twice in my life I have already been told that the world was going to end with a definite date set.
The first time was the whole New Millennium thing.
The second was 6/6/06
(which I didn't take seriously, the first I did though cause I was a kid and gullible)
honestly I am not going to worry too much about it.
if **** is going to hit the fan it is going to hit the fan.
nothing I can do about it.
might as well just enjoy life.
