2012: DOOMSDAY!! Yawn. Another one?

Throughout history, there have been those who have predicted the Coming of the End, the Consummation of All Things, the Return of Christ, Armageddon, Ragnarok, what-have-you. The majority of these seers and prognosticators were wise enough to leave the date unspecified, presumably to avoid embarrassment when the expected event failed to materialize. Others, such as Nostradamus and Bishop Ussher, put the date far into the future, long after their corporeal bodies had returned to dust.

There are those few brave souls, however, who are willing to stick their necks out, and give us a date in the near future, when they themselves will presumably still be around to either bask in the glow of glory, or suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, should the cosmic plan go awry. It is to these, the few, the brave and most importantly, the Web-enabled that this list is dedicated.

9/9/09: Doomsday? Apparently not.

It’s 9/9/09 and the doom-mongers have predicted in the past that the world will end today. But if you’re reading this, then we think it’s safe to assume it hasn’t.

The ninth day of the ninth month of the ninth year, was said by some to signify the end of the planet. Over the past few weeks, bloggers and conspiracy theorists have devoted their energies to convincing us that the numbers have mystical significance.

Would the world be sucked into a black hole created by the Cern particle collider in Switzerland?, some asked.
