Dutch Prepare for 2012 Apocalypse…Fear the End Is Near

2012 Doomsday?

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, June 23 (UPI) — Thousands of people in the Netherlands say they expect the world to end in 2012, and many say they are taking precautions to prepare for the apocalypse.

The Dutch-language de Volkskrant newspaper said it spoke to thousands of believers in the impending end of civilization, and while theories on the supposed catastrophe varied, most tied the 2012 date to the end of the Mayan calendar, Radio Netherlands reported Monday.

De Volkskrant said many of those interviewed are stocking up on emergency supplies, including life rafts and other equipment.

Some who spoke to the newspaper were optimistic about the end of civilization.

“You know, maybe it’s really not that bad that the Netherlands will be destroyed,” Petra Faile said. “I don’t like it here anymore. Take immigration, for example. They keep letting people in. And then we have to build more houses, which makes the Netherlands even heavier. The country will sink even lower, which will make the flooding worse.”

  1. It has nothing to do with the bible. The bible was written by man, as are all other books. If the world does end (which it eventually will.) It has nothing to do with anyone will or any plan. it’ll be a natural catastrophy, magnetic storm or WWIII will be unleashed and everyone will bomb everyone else. The world is going to end, be it in 2012, 2999, or in another 4000 years. Who knows. Stocking up is the right answer, unless you don’t want to live through it without your Iphone4 or Facebook account…

  2. you cannot prepare for the end of the world gods will does not work that way. you canot change the preditions in the bible if so it would have been wrote. unless god inspires us to build an ark just stay home, hiding underground woun’t matter your still on earth mars maybe?
