Snag Short Of A BBQ?
Well, you decide after reading the following
For a start, without attempting to insult anyone, I am a non believer in any type of god or supreme being, heaven, hell or anything in between, I am actually an antagonistic agnostic :) My opinion that has grown over a number of years, is that the only problems this world has is a belief in religion, mainly that ‘my’ god is better than ‘yours’ and to prove it I am going to wage war on you and your god. If there was a ‘god’ he should sack and outlaw all religions and the people who preach that drivel, then the world would be a better place! So, that is why I have a belief in science based fact and modern interpretations show a difference in opinion between university taught science and actual fact based science, in a number of areas.
On the 21st December 2012, the Mayan Prophecies says the end of the 5th age will occur, or more likely the beginning of a new age. Here is a link that explains everything.
Over the past 15 years or so I have been interested in some great investigation and exploration texts that have put fresh interpretations on existing information. It all started with a book by Graham Hancock called – Fingerprints of the Gods Basically this text went into great depth to show that there are quite a few things that happened in our past which are extremely unusual. The evidence was presented quite well and there was one photo that stuck in my mind. This was a map of the Antarctic continent that was produced in the 1500s called the Oronteus Finaeus Map of 1532 . It showed the land mass under 3kms of ice!!! This map or chart was produced a long time before America was discovered.
So, anyway it sounded quite convincing and I read quite a number of books along this type of theme, including the Orien Mystery, Keeper of Genesis etc.
So, over the past few years I have been planning on doing a Round The World trip. The reason for doing so is a combination of a number of factors.
I was bored with the rut I was in. You know, mortgage, good job etc but single with no plans in the wind to change this.
A good friend had a car smash and lost a lot of leg function and over a drink or two or many, we came to the conclusion that if you want to do something, do it now, or it may be too late!
I am an avid reader (kookiness alert) of both Science Fiction and other fiction books, as well as a belief in some of the fact books that are becoming more prevalent over the past number of years. Quite a few of these have been written by self proclaimed scientists who do not believe all that is taught by regular universities and have either taught themselves, or studied certain subjects with a totally different viewpoint. I have never followed the mainstream beliefs in anything, so this appealed to me :)
So, if I needed any type of excuse to go for a ride around the world, then the fact that there may not be a world as it is today in 2012, seemed like as good a reason as any :)
So, the above are the main reasons why I am doing what I am doing. If I waited another 10 years until I could maybe retire, this trip would be a lot more difficult physically. I am still young enough and agile enough to pick up my bike when it gets dropped, I have proven that already. If the world does not end in 2012, then I will have seen a lot of the world and enjoyed spending my savings in a way I wanted to. Also, on the 22nd December, if the world has not ended, is my mums birthday, so I will always have a few bucks held back to buy her a present ;)
So, it has taken me a while to write this page, over the space of about 10 months, now it is up to you to decide if I am a snag short of a BBQ, or whether what I believe has some truth based on facts. There is a lot of reading out there and as you should realise, not everything on the net is absolutely accurate and some people have a private agenda in misinformation. My own belief has been building over a long period of time and those books that have been printed actually do have facts in them, it is whether you believe in the authors interpretation that counts :)
I am not a doomsday artist, but believe the world as we know it will not be the same on the 22nd December 2012 and it will not all happen at once, but a general and gradual buildup in world events culminating on that date!
