Apacalypse 2012

"There’s a growing realization that materialism and the rational, empirical worldview that comes with it has reached its expiration date,” Daniel Pinchbeck, tells The New York Times' Benjamin Anastas.

According to Anastas, Pinchbeck has introduced "a young and savvy audience to the school of millenarian thinking" by employing "viral marketing and a tireless schedule of public appearances."

Just how savvy is Pinchbeck. Well let's just say, he's appeared on "The Colbert Report."

Pinchbeck and a handful of like-minded alternative scholars want to to "free the planet from the dissonant influence of Western science."

Other proponents of Pinchbeck's theory have been going conferences and sending out papers and links to their Web site to selected scholars for years, but their attempts at making contact are usually ignored.

"They really don’t want to engage in a discussion with you," says another of the theory's adherents, John Major Jenkins.

Same old, same old from intelligent design activists?

Well, no.

These guys believe the world will come to and end on December 21, 2012 based on their reading of ancient Mayan calendars.
