There has also recently been found a illustrated book attributed to Nostradamus that points to 2012 as end time.

That's because he predicted that everyone who believed his prophecies would be unable to read.

quote from dumb link posted above
http://www.december212012.com/articl...012-update.htm:

"I will give you one example of something that is false. Money is false. There is no intrinsic value in the currency that we currently exchange. You can't eat it; you can't do anything with it; it's just paper and the only reason it holds value right now is because we agree that it has value. You take your dollar bill to the merchant and you trade it for.. let's say.. a banana. You are trading a small piece of green paper for a banana because you and the merchant both agree that the dollar bills value is equal to or greater than the banana. What do you think would happen if the merchant no longer agreed that the dollar bill held any value and he saw it for what it truly is, a small piece of imprinted green paper? You would keep your paper, the merchant would keep his banana, and you would be hungry."
That's ********, how does this person think the merchant got the banana in the first place?

Anyway, the most likely thing that will happen is we'll just have finished electing a new president. After suffering through 12 years of mediocre presidential leadership, the four years starting in 2012 won't be looking much better either.

The US will be in very sad shape and not be able to wipe it's own ars because the government is soft on illegal immigration and sending all the manufacturing jobs overseas therefor leaving it's core populous (whipped dog blue color)without jobs thus needing to claim welfare from the system that won't able to support it because the majority of the illegal population will have their family's draining the housing, education, and medical institutions because the government will give that too them too.

I fully expect China to invade the US being funded purely by profits from Walmart/Home Depot/Lowes
They will probably start by bombing us with children's toys filled with lead.
Then they will get rid of our live stock by putting poisonous material in the food.

Too much?
