The Web Bot

In the 90’s computer programers designed a program that would predict changes in the stock market. The “Time Monks” that created this program figured that if Web-Bot could predict the future of the stock market, then why couldn’t it predict the future of the world?? The methodology behind the Web Bot was that it was triggered by 300,000 or so keywords on forums, blogs, social networking sites and other internet sites. It would tally the types of chatter of the people posting online.
Web Bot is said to have predicted many disasters that have happened such as; the Columbia Space Shuttle, Northeast Blackout of 2003, 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, Hurrican Katrina, and the Dick Cheney Hunting incident.
The Web Bot has gotten most of its popularity from contributing to the 2012 apocalypse theories. It claims small nuclear wars will start in 2009 which would start a chain of events leading to major nuclear disasters in 2012 and possibly a switch in the magnetism of the poles. The Web Bot theory does not predict a complete end of the world, but possibly an end to how we know it.
This theory is even harder for me to believe than some others because the Web Bot is sort of a cheater. Since it gathers all its information from the internet, any internet site such as a weather channel site could predict a natural disaster first. The Web Bot would see this and then call for bad weather.


The Mayans

The Mayans are constantly quoted when referring the the end of the world. Their ancient civilization along with Nostradamus have predicted disasters all over the world. The Mayan apocalypse theory comes from a calender that they created. The Mayans created many calenders over time. Ones that predicted the location of the sun, others to help grow crops and about 13-17 others that predicted god knows what.

One of their calenders was called the “Long Count”. It started around 3114 B.C. and ended over 5,000 years later. When the Mayan’s calender was compared to the Gregorian calender the final day on both was December 21st, 2012. This is when everyone freaked out. Turns out that during that date, it is also the winter solstice. During the winter solstice, the sun and the Milky Way line up, and for some reason since this is all happening at the same time, it is predicted that the north and south pole will shift. If this happens, SUPPOSEDLY, it could cause many natural disasters on earth.  Underwater volcanoes could erupt causing floods that could flood the entire earth which would cause power and satellite failure, and all sorts of crap.

How come all of the sudden, just because the Mayans and Gregorians got too lazy to finish their calenders, now the world is going to end? The fact that their calenders ended on the same day is what I like to call a coincidence. I have no advice for this weeks apocalypse theory because I think its a load and if it wasn’t…eh, what can ya do?
