The Book of Seven Seals discovered

The Book of Seven Seals, as mentioned in the Book of Revelation, has been discovered a few years ago in Jordan and since been snatched away by an Isreali! It's been photographed but not studied apparently. I'm not exactly sure why it has twelve seals but hey.

2012 is soooo 2010

You know how screwed up our calendar system is? Firstly, it uses the supposed birth date of the Prophet Jesus Christ as start point for year one... but wasn't he born on Dec 25th? I don't think many historians or Bible scholars actually believe that this was the exact date anyway.
Second of all, the "Julian" calender used since the days of Ceasar, counted 365 days a year. but a year is actually 365 and a quarter days long, which is why we have leap years. but they hadn't calculated that, so in the 16th century they skipped two weeks of the year to catch up! Caesar did a similar thing in his time, leaping 67 days to catch up with the actual movement of the solar year. which brings me to my point...

So you've all heard of and sick of hearing about the Mayan Calendar cycle which ends on Dec 20, 2012. But hang on, syncing that calendar with ours, have we taken into account all this tampering done by Caesar and Pope Gregory with the dates? No. and if we do? Apparently, the end date of the Mayan Calendar becomes October 28, 2011. That's when comet Elenin will be passing very close to our fragile planet.

info about the calendars and the comet came from here.
