1999 to 2012 and 2016

1999 to 2012 and 2016

Today, it is rainy and I am busy with a lot of work to do.

But, late last night, a cable TV channel, serving around Tokyo, featured the crisis of Dec. 21, 2012 and some related prophetic poems of Nostradamus.

2012 doomsday prediction

The 2012 doomsday prediction is a present-day cultural meme proposing that cataclysmic and apocalyptic events will occur in the year 2012. This idea has been disseminated by numerous books, internet sites and by TV documentaries. The forecast is based primarily on what is claimed to be the end-date of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, which is presented as lasting 5,125 years and as terminating on December 21 or 23, 2012, along with interpretations of assorted legends, scriptures and prophecies.

A New Age interpretation of this transition posits that, during this time, the planet and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation rather than an armageddon, and that 2012 may well be the end of the world as we know it, but not the end of the human species.[1],_2012

They once said that Nostradamus predicted the world would end in July 1999.

This time, they say that Nostradamus predicted that though the world would not end, something extravagant would happen on December 21, 2012.

If somebody had predicted in the first century that Israelites would be soon forcibly driven out of Jerusalem but would return to the holy city by force to be Israelis in the 20th century, we could think that such a prophecy could be possible.

(Jesus Christ Himself said to come back sometime riding on the cloud so that everybody could see Him from the East to the West.)

And, we are yet to hear any such prediction from the Islamic world while their mode of religious practices has been implying for 1400 years that the end is so close.

So, you had better doubt honesty of those who are making money by selling such predictions.

Yet, the year 2012 will not be an ordinary year, since 2008 was not.

By the way, do you really expect that the 2016 Summer Olympic Games will be held in Tokyo?

(I once mentioned some notable prophecies and predictions about the world, such as Newton's; you can still find them somewhere in this blog site.

And, I also made some predictions, too, based on correlation between the year 2001 and A.D.1. Please refer to my posting on October 03, 2008 "EEE-HISTORY". It goes the following way:

1943 (63 B.C.): Pompey captures Jerusalem, and establishes Roman annexation of Judea as a client kingdom. King Judah Aristobulus II removed from power, while his brother John Hyrcanus II becomes king under Roman suzerainty

1962 (44 B.C.): Julius Caesar murdered

1975 (31 B.C.): Roman Civil War: Battle of Actium — Off the western coast of Greece, forces of Octavian defeat troops under Mark Antony and Cleopatra.

1979 (27 B.C.): The Roman Senate votes Octavian the title of Augustus. Augustus eventually assumes all authority formerly held by the Roman senate becoming the first emperor.

2000 (6 B.C.): Birth of Jesus of Nazareth

[Though there isn't the year "A.D. 0," a new Pope was elected and the EEE Reporter started in 2005.]

2006 (1 A.D.):

2014 (9 A.D.): Three Roman legions were ambushed and destroyed at Teutoberg Forest by Germans under the leadership of Arminius.

2019 (14 A.D.): Augustus Caesar, first emperor of Rome, dies. His nephew Tiberius is his successor.

2035 (30 A.D.):
Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Death of Jesus.

2069 (64 A.D.): Great Fire of Rome, first Roman mass Persecution of Christians, earliest significant recognition of Christians in Rome.

2071 (66 – 73 A.D.): First Jewish-Roman War. )
