97 per cent of the world to be destroyed tomorrow!

Post  wyatt1 on Sat Aug 04, 2012 12:55 pm

First topic message reminder :

No, not really. It's just my little joke, based on pretending to take people like the BBC's resident climate activists David Shukman, Richard Black and Roger Harrabin seriously.
I'll tell you what doesn't amuse me, though. Here I am in Wales, on my holidays, enjoying the semi-sun, and suddenly I get emails from and Tweets from sensible people on my side of the argument saying: "Help! Help! The BBC has gone mad for this story about the NASA satellite showing that 97 per cent of Greenland has melted and apparently it's 'unprecedented'. What do we do?"
Sigh. The right thing to do on occasions like this, I find, is to head straight for Watts Up With That? Unlike, say, the BBC, or the Guardian, or the Independent or most of the rest of the MSM, WUWT's posts are grounded in actual science and real world data.

Hi Wyatt. Thank you for the good wishes. I hope you remain healthy. It isn't very nice after years of good health and fitness to find your body beginning to break down.

Hi Stardesk, it must be terrible, I seem to be one of the lucky ones and never had any problems so far. Hope you are feeling better and keep improving. Thumbs up

Evening folks. Trying to get back on topic, all these scare-mongering articles are a comedy, very much like the conspiracy theories. If we believed all these tales we wouldn't dare go out lest the sky fell on us! Or a UFO landed on your lawn.

Quite comical really, isn't it. Now and again we get these bible bashers predicting the end of the world, they all gather on top of a hill with arms spread to the heavens, waiting to be beamed up, and what happens? Nothing. The next day the pastor says he made a mistake in his calculations. lol!

I think it would be better to have a word with Mama Pacha, after all she was the (Inca) Earth Mother Goddess who brought the world and life into being. Kukulcan was just a lowly serpent.

BTW, mythology is one of my favourite subjects and past-times, I'm all for discussing this topic if you're interested.

Ah, but he was a god to the Mayans...the top God, as I recall.

I'm not really an expert on Mayan mythology, but I have been to Chichen Itza and seen the pyramid. I didn't get the opportunity of climbing up it, unfortunately, because I had done something fairly nasty to my back the previous day and was on a walking stick....well, with the temperature at about 100 and the humidity off the scale that was my excuse!

The pyramid and the sacred ball court were absolutely awsome, and in going there I achieved one of the six goals I set myself before I shuffle off this mortal coil.

I've managed four others - the pyramids and tombs of Egypt, the birthplace of Christ (moving whether you are a believer or not) and the Rock of Masada (even more intensely moving, IMO - I actually wept..and me a battle hardened old bugger! The tragic story is well worth a google if you don't know it) and I've photographed wild animals in Africa. The only one I've missed out on is Ayers Rock, and I think it's probably too late now.

I'm just finishing a trilogy of fictional novels by Steve Alten on the Mayans and their legends...a bit way out, but I like a bit of escapism from time to time. I can recommend them, but they are very long and I'm finding the third one somewhat confusing.

Good evening, Edmund. Concerning the Ball Court. I believe the losers of a ball game were sacrificed to the gods! Perhaps we should do that to some of our egotistical players.

As regards Steve Alten, no I haven't read any of his books. At the moment I'm reading Richard Dawkin's book 'The Greatest Show on Earth.' The evidence for evolution. A very comprehensive work but not too heavy where scientific explanations are given. An excellent work if you want to know more about evolution.

'Tis true about the losing side in the ball game, Stardesk...or at least so far as their captain was concerned. He was taken up the steps of the pyramid (for those who haven't seen a pic of it, it is huge, but it is stepped and can be walked up) and the priest was waiting on the top platform where there was a stone statue of the reclining god Chacmool. The poor bugger was laid out on it and his heart was removed by the priest using an obsidian knife, and then displayed to the crowd.

I gather the same sort of thing happens after Millwall home games....

Possibly nothing to do with the topic...but

Internet 'will be full by Friday'
THE world will run out of cyberspace by the end of the week, it has emerged.

This could be the final cat picture
Once the limit is reached, it will be impossible to upload any new content. Technologists have blamed the ‘perfect storm’ of an iPhone launch, a new Doctor Who episode and a royal scandal with tits in it for a barrage of unsolicited opinions that has pushed the internet to 99.94% of capacity.

Web analyst Stephen Malley said: “The web is like the big cardboard box in your loft – bulging at the seams with X Files episodes and useless products – except it’s not in your house, it’s in the air.

“When it bursts, the crap will come spraying out randomly in all directions, projecting breasts and cats onto any vaguely screen-like surface.”

The public is being asked to think carefully before adding to the world wide web.

Stephen Malley said: “Does Facebook need another blurry photo of you dancing with your drunken friends? Is your comment on that Daily Mail article really going to add to the sum of human knowledge?”

“We’re hoping to free up additional room by deleting MySpace. We got rid of half of it six months ago, and no one noticed. ”

The British government is considering internet rationing, with users limited to three ‘Likes’ and two ‘LOLs’ per day. ‘LMFAOs’ will be banned for being too wordy.

Restrictions on pornography are already in place, with new films permitted only if they cater for new fetishes.

Porn star Wayne Hayes said: “The only film currently in production stars a woman dressed as a tree and a bucket of whelks. Frankly that’s not what I got into this industry for.”

Wonder what it's like on the other side, do we all become lovely dovey angels with no hatred, and nothing but love and peace in our hearts for others, is their really a judgement day?, do certain religions auto reject at the pearly gates and are told (sorry wrong department, you need the ground floor) or is there just nothing but nothingness?.

Anyone willing to take a wager that when we reach the Pearly Gates the pikeys will have got there first and nicked them?
