PREDICTIONS FOR 2012
« on: December 28, 2011, 07:34:30 AM »
Please add your predictions.

Of course there won't be a world after 12-20-2012 because of the Mayan (and always unmentioned, Gregorian) calendar prophecy.

Since few of us claim any psychic ability there will be no need to explain away the failure of our prophecies.

I predict that all the laws of physics will work exactly as they're supposed to and that the entire universe will "keep going" as it's supposed to. Everything will be completely normal.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

I predict the U.S. will elect a bought and paid for politician to the  whitehouse.
Actually it doesn't. One could conceivably be all-powerful but not exceptionally intelligent.

There will be rioting in major cities.
A major government will change.
A bank will collapse.
Many people will lose their jobs.

....is that vague enough for a "prediction"?   ;D
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

On December 21st, 2012, after the Mayan thing fizzles, followers of von Däniken will find a sharpened stick lying near a campfire with what appears to be marshmallow bits on it that, when looked at under a microscope, say very clearly in an ancient text that the world will end on February 31st, 2018. They will start passing out petitions asking people to help them change the calendar so that this event will be possible. And they will get enough signatures in two weeks.

And scientists will prove that people like being afraid of something more than just having their favorite TV program cancelled. As per the above paragraph.

I should take a bunch of stocks and note their trends up or down and then predict a reversal.  There will always be some, of course.  Then next year I can point out the right ones and claim that my inspiration has defied the experts.  I can ignore the bad ones and since I don't have to identify the experts I have something bankable.

Or here's a new one:  Policemen and journalists in Hawaii and various Kenyans are going to die -- in supposed accidents, alleged diseases and "robberies".   These are all people who were on to Barack Obama's true origins.  I don't know whether they knew it or not.  The Kennedy assassination conspiracists and the Vince Foster conspiracists have never had to specify.

I predict that Pat Robertson will soon give us God's predictions for the coming year. And I predict they will include things like "turmoil in the Middle East," "economic uncertainty," and "natural disasters in some parts of the world."

I predict that as December 21 approaches, there will be another "run" on food, water, gasoline, weapons, and so on, much like the one for Y2K but likely on a smaller scale since most people know that the Mayan calendar thing is hooey (as opposed to the Y2K bug, which could have been a very serious problem were it not for all the programmers who worked to fix it).

I also predict that no one on this forum will disagree with this prediction.  In fact, I predict I'll hear a lot of people saying things like "Thank you, Captain Obvious".   ;D

There was a thing on TV the other day about a company that was selling underground bunkers with ventilation, ability to be underwater for a period of time, etc.  Also, 2 large arks being built that could get you 5 months with food/water/etc.  Think it was like a million to secure a spot and some were pissed off that the news of it is out.

You will know when it happens.  One of us will start acting different.  Try to hide the horns and tail.  Dead give away.

There is going to be a dead give-away? Cool. Has the body already been procured? How do we get tickets?      ;D

I predict a number of theists will come to the forum, most which will any and all of the following: a.) preach endlessly b.) refuse to listen or consider alternative arguments or c.) arrive knowing nothing about whatever they came to talk about, ie. evolution. I predict we'll also find a few keepers as well who will at least be willing to consider alternative viewpoints openly!

Assuming I don't die from poor health or by accident I'll still be alive in 2013. Along with about 7 billion other people.

The poor will get poorer and the rich will get richer.

Obama will get relected. Republicans will wonder how the Gingrich/Bachmann dream ticket was defeated, eventually blaming it on Satan and the liberal media.

Donald Trump will continue to think the comb over is a cool look.

More superhero drivel from Hollywood. After all it's perfectly normal for a guy to fight crime wearing spandex tights.

The Olympics will be the usual overpriced waste of time and effort.

Afghanistan will be another graveyard for western military might and a real graveyard for the afghans.

Iraq will collapse into civil war.

The waist on Simon Cowells pants will get higher.

Jesus will fail to make a second coming. Yet again. Oh well maybe 2013.

I predict that Holland will win Euro 2012, avenging their 2010 World Cup loss to Spain by beating the sods 4-0 in the final. Ronaldo will miss 4 easy shots on goal.

I predict magicmiles prediction will be wrong. Holland will be smacked and Ronaldo will NOT miss 4 shots.
