2012 Disaster -- Man-Made?

And intended to coincide with 2012?

According to the Bible, no man shall know when God's kingdom will unfold on earth. Not even Jesus knew.

I just recently saw an ad for a book that claims that December 21, 2012 won't be the end of the world, but could instead be time when Jesus returns.

It seems to make sense that God would prevent the world from ending by sending Jesus to set things right.

So what if there are people fighting to ensure that the world does end?

Aging, Immortality, and Evil

I've usually thought of aging as an evolutionary step which provides younger offspring a better shot at limited resources by killing off the older generation.

Since our technology allows us to harvest resources in mass quantities now, what's the point of growing old?

So many atheists argue that there is nothing after death, and there is no evidence of an afterlife. So why not use science to make humans functionally immortal in the physical plane?

But what if... What if as we grow older, the means of getting away with wrongdoings become simpler and simpler? Experience builds, while physical potential decays. So what if giving a man the fountain of youth would simply enable him to misbehave?

I was wondering why it seems that the rowdiness of youth seems to dissipate as we grow older. What if eternal youth means eternal rowdiness, eternal sin, and eternal idiocy?

A comforting counter-argument hinges on the idea that the older you become, the more naturally spiritual you become (as well as kind and cooperative). Subtle lessons regarding how to tap into a higher plan or another realm are learned over years, so what if instead of ensuring infinite stupidity, immortality allows humans to reach bold new spiritual peaks?

Mankind To Be "Uplifted" In 2012?

I've recently read about uplifting, whereby a highly advanced race of beings alters a lower creature to bring it into a higher state of evolution. So if you could give a dog the ability to think, to reason, to do the "I am" thing, then you'd be uplifting it.

There are stories of Gods visiting man, and I remember reading about an old guy with an elongated skull, leading a Mayan community. Could he be from an advanced race, sent here to uplift us in a technological sense? What if the 2012 date is his return? Or that of his race?

Will "higher" beings come to earth in December of 2012 and alter us? Bring us to a higher level of awareness? Of evolution?

It seems that we are approaching the point where we could uplift ourselves using our own technology. Perhaps a "higher" race wants us to "get it right" the first time, and skip all the trial and error that we'd inevitably experience before achieving a truly great form of uplifted humanity.
