2012 is so yesterday....

No, I'm kinda serious here. It occurs to me that I've seen multiple epic dates come and go with no epic, and its started to bore me. I was thinking it might be fun to try and figure out what day will become the end of the world once it's 2013 and the boat has gone to the next shore. All goes well, and this topic will result in lulz and "I told you so" in about 4 years. Anyone ever come across some well done psuedo science site with a date after 2012? Plato? Jesus? Maybe the Jews?

I remember someone once

I remember someone once telling me that the "Fifth Age" of the world was coming in a few years (can't remember the exact year) and that Plato had written about some seccret documents that were already hidden and sealed by his time in the left foot of the Sphinx. Supposedly, at the beginning of the fifth age their going to open it (and yes he even had the odassity to say that the Egyptian government and many other world goverments all bought this and were willing the deface the Sphinx for it) and then we can all read what was hidden there. Maybe those documents can tell us when the world will end.

One need not be daring to engage in end-of-the-world skepticism. If the world ends you wont be around to eat crow.

I see potential in both of

I see potential in both of those, but no dates is a bit annoying. Have to wait for ratzinger and successor to die in one, or a rather extreme change of regime in the other. Harder to keep people's attention when it gets that vague. Still, good stuff.
