Latest news - It's the end of the world

kirsty203.jpgTelling people the world is going to end is a tricky business. It's even more difficult if the apocalypse is being caused by an ugly race of aliens.

So if you had the choice of one person to tell you this news - who would it be?

Well Kirsty Wark of course.

In last week's episode of Doctor Who, our own Kirsty announced: "The government has declared a state of emergency" as the Sontarans unleashed their terrifying assault on earth.

David Tennant, who was sitting at home watching the episode, was so impressed he texted the director Douglas Mackinnon:

"It's funny but when Kirsty Wark tells you the world's ending you don't doubt it!"

    I expect Ms Wark will be telling us the world is going to end frequently during the Scottish referendum in 2010. To coin a phrase; "Bring it on!"

    YOU DON'T SCARE ME

    With Kirsty’s ‘post dental’ consanant-free Scottishness, and my 70 year old hearing, it would have all the impact of: ‘Send forty Euro’s, I need to have a pee’.

    I think the world is coming to an end, very slowly but surely. We have spent most of our lives trying to prevent things, like disease and stuff like that by focusing on the problems instead of the solutions. Just like global warming and such we are trying to use energy saving stuff but thats not gonna stop the pollution, its only gonna prevent it, until we cant prevent anymore and our world blows up and goes to the dogs :(

    Well actually the world IS coming to an end, of sorts. Not so much an end, perhaps, as a new beginning. We are about to experience a Pole Shift in the year 2012, which will also equate to a Consciousness Shift too. We will shift from the 3 Dimensional Physical Reality that we currently occupy, to a 4th or 5th Dimensional non-Physical new paradigm of Reality. (continued...)

    Another psychic medium, Ruth Montgomery, wrote of this in her book, 'Herald of The New Age' back in the 1980's. The science and evidence of Pole Shifts is explored at length by Graham Hancock in his book, 'Fingerprints of The Gods', also concurring with the findings of Prof. Charles Hapgood on Earth-crust Displacement Theory.

    This is predicted by the Mayan calendar. It is also confirmed in the Ra material channelings of David Wilcock, and the White Eagle teachings channelled by English psychic, Grace Cooke, in the 1930's/40's.

    The recent cyclone in Burma, and the earthquake in China, as well as the tsunami, are all symptoms of the coming Earth changes. There will be more to come!

    The Earth completes her 26,000 year Precessional cycle on 21st December 2012. This is when the Pole Shift will occur. The Shift of Ages. All the natural disasters, economic upheaval and warfare we are seeing at the moment, is a pre-cursor to the Shift.

  • Comment number 13.

    Advanced civilizations have existed before, way back in pre-history, but were wiped out by Pole Shifts. Hence the existence of anomalous and enigmatic evidence, such as the Piri Reis Map.

    The 'aliens', some of whom are E.T.s, some inter-dimensional Beings, some Ascended Masters, are here to help us through this event.

    Anarchy_UK #8 to #14 - why so many? were you afraid the world might end before you could hit the 'post' button?

    Our planet will come to an end, eventually: gobbled up by our dear neighbour Mr Sun... See articles in the New Scientist (notably in December 2003) or, if you have a Dutch sense of humour, this:

    No. There is too much info to fit into just one post. VERY IMPORTANT INFO. It all ends on Dec. 21st 2012= POLE SHIFT. The Government knows but keeping it secret.
