How embarrassing, in the year 2014, that people regress to bronze-age superstitious nonsense whenever a perfectly understood natural phenomenon occurs.
And yet, when compared to something like Time Cube, these people look like geniuses. The spectacular stupidity of some people is really quite amazing.

OT: I'll have to go outside to look at this during a study break that night.

Oh, for crying out loud...

Knock off the doomsday predictions! They've all been done to death a thousand times over.

Could we please make it illegal to go on and on with this nonsense? Say, fine anyone who pushes this crap ten years' income if they're proven wrong.

At this point, it's safe to say that all these predictions are just nonsense spouted by a bunch of people who so desperately want a major apocalypse scenario to happen for one reason or another. But they won't, ever, because this is reality not a fairy tale.

As far as I'm concerned, as long as they don't hurt anyone, let the idiots be and let us get back to our Game of Thrones. New seasons started!

World's ending in four days? Cool. I'll go get some coffee and wait at my porch to see what the apocalypse looks like.

"Major events in Israel"

Oh really? And tell me the last time there was no major events in Israel?

Still, blood red moons beat "THE CALENDAR IS CHANGING" as a reason for doomsday theories.

Ho hum. Another day, another doomsday prophecy. Are we done with this nonsense yet? I guess I'll spend this apocalypse the same as the Mayan and Nordic ones: drunk and playing video games.

*Composes a letter to the stars*

Dear Great Old Ones (and Outer Gods),

I have been an a very evil boy this year, so I would like to be sure that I am not on the 'tasty treats' list. In return for your benevolence, I will seek out your enemies (whoever they might be) and swallow their souls with my demon powers.

Sincerely,
FalloutJack

PS: If you turn on me like last time, I will join forces with Bruce Campbell to destroy you all.


There we go. I'm set. Anybody else want to send a letter?

Oh dear,not this doomsday crap again surely? Doomsday prophecies are so popular on Above Top Secret that there's a appropriately named "Doomsday Predictions" sub-forum.
But it'll be awesome to see because i should be able to see it from my country of New Zealand assuming the weather plays nice.

Predict that doomsday will come every day, and someday you will be right. Though I'm not sure if the heatdeath of the planet a billion years from now really counts.
Heat death will occur MUCH later than that, several orders of magnitude later. But if I recall correctly, the sun will expand(become a red giant) and swallow the earth in about 4-5 billion years, before it dies.

You know, I'd rather prefer that the world doesn't end on April 15th thank you. That would be the worst birthday present the universe has given me after having me born on April 15th in general. April 15th is Tax Day in the US, the day Lincoln died, and the day the Titanic sank. I don't need more things to add to that list! >.<

In all seriousness though, I'd hoped we were beyond these asinine doomsday predictions after 2012 didn't happen. If anything is gonna end the world, it's not going to be a moon changing color because of a lunar eclipse. If anything, it'll be humanity that will destroy humanity.

When I read "Blood Moon" my first thought was to brace myself for an Ork Waaagh!
Blood Axes and Bad Moons are tribes, don't think there's a Ork group of Blood Moons.

However, my first thought was it sounds like a crap teen fantasy book title.

Instead we get a lame ass eclipse. I wish doomsday prophets turn out to be right at least once in my lifetime.
They are, just locally, not globally. Unless someone was predicting the GFC because the stars were right.

If this doesn't turn the world into Shadowrun, I will be very sad.
Chin up chummer. At least we don't have dragons running the 1%, nor nations of elf conspirators trying to rule the world from their seats in the UK and California (well, according to some that may already be happening).

More seriously: I was set to do a program for that today at the observatory I volunteer at, but alas; remnants from this weekend's active storm pattern are all but ensuring cloudy skies during the event.

If I've learnt anything about the way life works, it is this.

When the apocalypse ACTUALLY comes, it will blindside everybody. Every last wacko and doomsday prepper will be wrong.

It will be interesting to see if anything happens, and what fingers are being pointed at. I'm a Christian, but seriously doubt it will be "The Second Coming" because as others have pointed out, there aren't supposed to be any signs like astrological ones pointing to the event. It will probably be the most unremarkable day possible oddly enough, at least as far as the general population is concerned. That said a "great event" is always possible, but great doesn't always mean flashy. If say some new prophet or saint was to be born it would be signifigant, even if that person didn't do anything for many years to come.

We'll see what happens, but I'm personally pretty sure it will just be a rare, but otherwise unimpressive, stellar event.

Truthfully, I'm kind of hoping it will be a return of benevolent alien sponsors. I could really use some near-magical (by our standards) medical technology (like a lot of people I imagine). I mean heck, if we're going to dream about massive change that ends the world as we know it, we might as well be optimistic! Some of these events could potentially be good, and change things so even I won't have to be a grim pessimist anymore. :)

So, did anyone see it? I was up and by an open window for most of the night. Saw a big, bright moon, but nothing red.

Tried to stay up for this, but was only able to stay up long enough to see the first bit of the eclipse. Thanks not feeling well!
