2012 Forum Featured in Playboy Magazine

August 16, 2009

In this month’s edition of Playboy (September, USA, Heidi Montag on the cover) is a feature article written by Frank Owen, looking into the survivalist aspects of the 2012 phenomenon. Members from the popular 2012Forum.com website are interviewed – chiefly Steve Pace of Missouri, but also Susan Skains, Ace McQuade and forum founder Robert Bast.

In a well-written and balanced piece, Owen ultimately suggests that a little preparation for whatever may come is not such a bad idea. Interestingly he also quotes a forum post in which Daniel, who claims to have travelled back in time to provide us 2012 information, tells us how he is stuck in a space-time continuum.

Where to next for the 2012 meme? I expect to see it appearing in Time, NewsWeek & 60 Minutes within the next 12 months.

UPDATE: The 2012 Playboy Article is now online

    spell check was a gift given by man as a gift to the PC world. As for 2012 the more people that populate the world the less god is needed in our existence. if the world is going to end it is not by god. This cycle has happened before……SEVERAL TIMES…but only recently has god been introduced into the world of Anglo- sextons. The World has the ability to purge itself of us. Look at disease and natural disasters that have been going on and the violent weather patterns. I would be looking at previous history of our planet before god. If man is truly the most advanced bing in the earth then we should be fine. I am going to place my bet on cockroaches being the last survivors though. The sad thing is, we had so much opportunity to avoid this. Instead we have wasted time on ourselves in this very minute being blinded by our own greed and selfishness. I use the term minutes because in the spectrum of the planet's time we have only been a spot on the earths long existence

    Press Release:

    By Gary Val Tenuta

    "2012 is coming…The clock is ticking…The code must be deciphered…And only one man can save the planet…If he can just figure out how…Before it's too late."

    Gary Val Tenuta – former contributing writer for Fate Magazine (U.S.) and Beyond Magazine (U.K.) and a guest on numerous radio programs (including Dreamland, hosted by best selling author Whitley Strieber and The X-Zone hosted by Rob McConnell) – has crafted an exciting mystery novel with an esoteric edge that may upset certain segments of the population while at the same time enthralling others with it's alternative perspective on reality and its vision for the future.

    It's all here in one puzzling page-turner of a novel: conspiracy, codes, secret societies, UFOs, ancient mysteries, the prophetic Mayan calendar end-date of 2012, alternative interpretations of Biblical events, mystifying metaphysics, good guys, bad guys, murder most foul and, yes, even a touch of romance. All of this, and more, is intricately woven into the multifaceted storyline of THE EZEKIEL CODE.

    From its cryptic prologue to its dramatic climax, THE EZEKIEL CODE is a provocative blend of fact and fiction with likable, vividly developed characters:

    Zeke Banyon – a handsome, Catholic seminary dropout – runs a homeless shelter in Seattle's old waterfront district and Angela Ann Martin is an attractive young widow who just wants a simple part-time job at the shelter. But a single twist of fate turns their simple lives upside down when together they stumble onto a mysterious code and a rumor about a lost scroll penned by the prophet, Ezekiel, thousands of years ago. They soon find themselves thrust deep into a world of secret societies, metaphysics, mystery and murder as they jet across continents in a race to understand the code that will lead them to an ancient artifact of profound importance. Dodging rogue Jesuit priests at every turn and unaware that the Illuminati are ever-present in the shadows, Zeke and Angela soon discover it's not just their own lives that are in danger but also the lives of everyone on the planet.

    Is Zeke Banyon the Chosen One of an obscure ancient prophecy? And if so, can he successfully accomplish the mission fate has in store for him? Nothing in seminary school could ever have prepared him for this.

    2012 is coming…The clock is ticking…The code must be deciphered…And only one man can save the planet…If he can just figure out how…Before it's too late.
