|December212012.com: yet another Profit of Doom.|
A Veritable Clearinghouse
There is hardly a doomsday claim that December212012.com has not managed to wedge into the 2012 hype. Just in the site's main menu the reader can find links to wild misinformation pertaining to:
- an alleged Mayan prophecy;
- Solar System events (e.g. asteroids, comets, and an Earth-Sun-Moon "alignment" that won't happen on 12/21/2012)1;
- Nibiru/Planet X;
- the Bible Code;
- 11:11 numerology;
- the I-Ching;
- a cataclysmic pole shift;
- and a host of dubious old predictions (e.g. by Nostradamus and the Hopi) commonly and erroneously attached to 2012 by doomsayers.
To top it all off, the site maintains a blog and generously offers to sell you "2012 Survival Supplies," as well as CafePress t-shirts, mugs, books and videos. They also proudly display an animated graphic of 2012 "Celebrity Believers" who may or may not actually believe. Ultimately, celebrity endorsement (or endorsement by anyone) has nothing to do with whether a proposition is true, but it is a terrific advertising technique.
December212012.com is just another scam site trying to make a buck via fear-mongering. More or less every claim put forth there is addressed on 2012hoax.org.
