Could the World End In 2012 ? – Blinds

April 28, 2010
Posted in Uncategorized — Written by admin

Blinds will be very low on your list of priorities if the mayans have correctly predicted that the world will end on December 21st 2012. This date will be known as the end of civilization on planet earth as we know it and the mass devestation that is set to occur on that day will change earth forever.

There are many possibilities and a countless amount of predictions that have been made that could all cause the world to change in such a drastic manner, the most common theory being a polar shift.

Solar flares that even the best blackout blinds could not keep at bay are said to shower the earth, causing mass devestation and widespread panic the world over.

This date in the legendary mayan calander is very significant as the mayan calander simply ends on this date.

The ancient mayan people have predicted very accurately in the past and they even forecast events such as the boxing day tsunami and the floodings of new orleans.

The signs are apparently already showing and the those who choose to ignore these obvious signs may simply perish.

How can you prepare ?

You don’t have to sit around and wait for things to happen, they have already started, look at the recent volcanic eruption in iceland, this has disrupted every major airport coming in and out of europe. The recent events are very small compared to what is to come and according to some very educated researchers they fear we are simply not prepared.

The government do not want us to know that their is even the smallest possibility of a huge natural disaster. Imagine this, the government announces that the world as we know it is about to change forever. Martial law and looting will soon commence, along with mass murder and all sorts of unforgivable crimes. Mass panic would occur the world over and there would be total gridloc throughout the whole country.

My advice is, forget your blinds. Concentrate all of your energy and focus into sourcing cheap land and then building an underground bunker that is capable of housing you and your loved ones for as greater length of time as possibble.
