T E O T W A W K I (Doomsday 2012)
REVIEWED BY: Marguerite Zelle
MY RECOMMENDATION: YES
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: T E O T W A W K I
WEB ADDRESS: http://thetwelvetwelvetwelve.blogspot.com/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: Mankind has always been obsessed with the end of the word. On several occasions throughout history, members of cults have gathered together in caves or other locations to wait out the end of the world - which of course has never ended. The latest obsession is the belief that when the Mayan Long Calendar ends on 12/21/12, the world will end. This blog will spend a year chronicling the evolution of this most current fear, "Doomsday 2012" - from the books published on the subject to the TV shows made to the people who believe it and their actions. We also study the culture of the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas. And we'll also discuss the psychology and literature of those individuals and organizations who await for TEOTWAWKI . While we believe these individuals are misguided, articles will be posted in a respectful manner. Only the dawn of December 22, 2012 will prove who is right in that regard. This blog is updated at least a couple of times a week.
MY REVIEW: This blog represents the danger of using an in-joke as a name. I don't think very many people will be doing a search on T E O T W A W K I (the end of the world as we know it). Much better if they'd named it Doomsday 2012, or The Doomsday Seekers, or something like that.
For those folks who don't know why a certain amount of people think the world will end on Dec 21, 2012, this is the blog for you.
For those who wonder why people are so quick to embrace the end of the world...this blog will eventually be for you!
