1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

And the comments were a fun read. LOL

Wow.  All it takes to make my day go better is to see just how much more deluded some folks out there on the web are…..

(Hmmmm.  He listed some new sites to read on the 2012 conspiracy/calamity!  I think I’ll go do some readin’!!)  surprised

Actually, on the topic of geomagnetic reversals the “sceptics"need some correcting too. The last reversal wasn’t 780 000 years ago. While this is the boundary of two major geomagnetic polarity epochs (Brunhes and Matuyama), thruth is that several smaller short-term polarization reversals have occured since, some rather recent.

...and they still do absolutely nothing. Even with the amount of electronics we have today, it won’t affect them in the slightest. Only possible issues come from extremely sensative magnetic devices (folks at CERN may have to rewrite some code), and Boy Scouts will have to follow the ‘south’ end of their compasses. They also don’t happen overnight - might take several years before it’s even noticable - nor are even the ‘minor’ flips that frequent.

I 200% agree to that.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
