A Cure for Doomsday Anxieties

Believe me, I’m not obsessed with apocalyptic, end-of-the-world, doomsday, end-time prophecies. But it was just eight years ago next month when a lot of people were trembling with fear as one millennium was about to end and another begin. And even if the world didn’t actually explode or implode as we entered 2000, we were certain to suffer mightily due to the dreaded Y2K.

It’s starting again. Here and there, more and more, we see references to 2012, the year the Mayan calendar ends, coincident with a number of other events that are certain to spell doom. Stay tuned for the Rapture. Just pray you’re not Left Behind.

All of this is why I encourage you to visit this website:

“Chicken Littles have been crying doom since ancient times,” writes the site’s author, Chris Nelson, who says he started the site “to debunk end-time prophecy by listing hundreds of failed doomsday predictions, allay the fears spread by end-time preachers, and demonstrate that doomcrying is nothing new.”

It’s a fascinating read ~ beginning with the year 2800 BC and extending to the present ~ with page after page of well-documented prophecies, many of them rather bizarre.

There’s probably no better way to fend off the anxiety that’ll be mounting until December 21, 2012, than to review the hundreds of failed predictions.

You might want to bookmark A Brief History of the Apocalypse for future reference.

Some of those prophecies are hilarious! Nonetheless, it is all very pitiful that there are people who put so much stock in pulpit talk.

The Ancient greeks had their Delphi oracul,and i supposed every nation on earth had one prophet too. I would like to share mine experience on the subject.Bulgaria had a famous prophet-Vanga.I did see her house in the town Petrich/near buy the border with Greece in southern Bulgaria/I was on the business trip ,and what impressed me, that her house was mobbed with people waiting to get questions answered.Questions regarding illnesses and cures,lost kids and etc.She was famous back then and the late Soviet Leonid Breznev paid a visit too.Any way people were on 1 year long waiting list.The city of Petrich was running the visits and making revenue.Not exuberant fee.I was dealing with official of the city and he offered me to get a visit.I politely declined,because i did not needed anything pressing to be resolved.There were people in really despair and sick people in wheelchairs.Would be disrespectfull to see her to satisfy your curiosity i tought back then.When you are dealing with person with such a gift you must respect it utterly. She was known to walk through the small garden and to call loudly to the waiting crowd behind the picket fence :Hey you there with the sick kid ,you need to go to this town and get a herbs from a healer and you will get better".She had a telepatick skills.So many people were helped and guided by her.After the conventional medecine,or the police was helpless she was the only hope.Here is litle bit info about her.

Vanga (Vangelia) Pandeva was born on January 31st, 1911 and spent her life living in Bulgaria until she died on August 11th, 1996. She lost her sight when she was 12 years old when she was swept away by a tornado. She was found alive with sand in her eyes, which was the reason for her blindness. Vanga began making predictions when she was 16 years old. She became very famous for having this gift rather quickly. Many of the statesman including Hitler had visited her and it is reported that Hitler left her house looking upset.

Vanga's most shocking prediction include:
"At the turn of the century, in August of 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water, and the whole world will be weeping over it." (1980)
- The prediction did not make any sense back then. Sadly, twenty years on, it did make a lot of sense, when a Russian nuclear submarine sunk in an accident in August of 2000. The submarine was named Kursk. Kursk - the city (after which the submarine was named), could by no means have been covered with water (probably that's why her prediction seemed so unrealistic at first).
"Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing." (1989)
- Happened as predicted. The World Trade Center Towers in New York collapsed following terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The WTC Towers were dubbed "Twins" or "Brothers." The terrorists drove passenger planes -"the steel birds"- into the towers. "The bush" obviously relates to the surname of the current U.S. president.

Below I'm including a big article about the predictions that she made about the future, and for visitors who don't speak Russian, I've translated each prediction she had made word to word, with text in ( ) being not my comment but the comment by the editor of a newspaper... You can either laugh and dismiss it, or take it word to word and become paranoid. The fact is no one knows whether any of it is going to come true or not, so i guess we'll have to wait and see, but your comments are welcome.

P.S. She also predicted;

"Everything will melt away like ice yet the glory of Vladimir , the glory of Russia are the only things that will remain. Russia will not only survive, it will dominate the world."(1979)
- The prediction was made in Soviet times when just a few people were using the term
"Russia". It remains to be seen which Vladimir Vanga had referred to. There are three real candidates: The Prince Vladimir, Vladimir Lenin, the Vladimir Putin, or the future one...
