Will humanity be united, ever?


I'll say, my friends, I'm worried where we as human race are going. Do we fell honor, respect, love. Would you die for your friend? 21.12.2012.

We come from nowhere and will return there. Till then, let's be happy and try to make as less damage as possible on this earth we have the chance to live on, so that future living being can benefit of it as we do now.

I'm confused. Was the end of the world supposed to be the 12th or the 21st?

Wasn't there some "Peace on earth goodwill to all men" thing in a book? It's supposed to end up better after it's got worse. Liam Neeson riding 4 horses through the whole world kind of worse.

The world is and has always been a bad place to live. It is my opinion that nothing ever changes.

I think Nostradamus is the 12th while the Mayan is the 23rd.

Strangely enough, humanity has existed on this planet for thousands of years and probably will do so for thousands of years more, even though we are and probably will remain "sonsofbeeches" if given one-third of a chance.

And for what it may be worth, I fully expect to be able to say: Merry Christmas!

Will humanity be united, ever ? Never.

As for the apocalypse, I expect it to be as uneventful and disappointing as Y2K was.

I thought the Mayans said the 23rd too but I've since seen 21st also. Not that I care personally but it would be good to know which day to look out for morons behaving like it's their last day and perhaps making it a self-fulfilling prophecy for them.

Looking back throughout history

One thing is for sure, no matter what, how or why

Humans kill humans.
