How Might the End Arrive? 2012 and 666

By SOP newswire2


Since the beginning of time people have made "end of the world` predictions.  Perhaps the one that receives the most attention is the Mayan Calendar prophecy which predicts humanity will end on December 21st, 2012.

What is most disconcerting about the Mayan prophecy is that their calendar is actually 1/10,000th of a day more accurate than our own Gregorian calendar.  Steve Alten knows quite a bit about the Mayan Calendar, having researched the Maya for his international best-selling 2012 Domain series. But it`s Alten`s new book, Grim Reaper: End of Days that reveals never before released information detailing how man may ultimately be responsible for our own species` demise. Says the author: According to the bible, when evil runs rampant, the imbalance between light and darkness summons the Angel of Death to walk the earth. The End of Days is a cause and effect supernal event, meaning it is triggered by man but predestined by God -- a response to our negative actions. "

Biblically speaking, this is what happened during the time of Noah when man`s wicked nature required a cleansing.  But it nearly happened again in 1346 when bubonic plague raced through Asia and Europe, killing 60% of the world`s population.  Many reported seeing a dark-cloaked Angel of Death, The Grim Reaper, " dancing around the dead. There are some startling parallels to the pre-pandemic years and our own society today. Greed and corruption preceded the Black Death.  Hatred spewed by false prophets led to the evils of the pogroms - the massacre of thousands of Jews and immigrants. Swap out a few cable news celebrities broadcasting hatred against Muslims and the similarities are disturbing, " says Alten.  Add to that one more disturbing fact --- 2012 arrives exactly 666 years after the Black Death of 1346 following what should be an extremely negative event, the next Presidential Election. "

How might the end arrive? One of the facts exposed by Grim Reaper: End of Days is an illegal, covert U.S. bio-warfare program that is creating biological weapons designed to wipe out entire populations. Using insider information, Steve Alten flies way above the radar, naming the CIA- sponsored U.S. lab that weaponized the 2001 anthrax attacks on Senators` Daschle and Leahy which ultimately sealed the passage of The Patriot Act. 

Critics are calling Grim Reaper: End of Days "one of the best books you will ever read, period."  The story, a contemporary Dante`s Inferno, takes place in December of 2012 when a modern-day version of the Black Plague developed by the Defense Department is released at the U.N. by a Christian zealot convinced she has been tasked to launch Revelations. As the pandemic races through Manhattan, a depressed Iraqi war veteran must journey through his own "Nine Circles of Hell" to find his family and cleanse his soul.

Note:  The Associated Press reported an outbreak of bubonic plague in a Denver suburb among prairie dogs the exact day the book hit stores! (10/8/10)
