Then get O.
And so at last get OUT.

December 23, 2012
A huge cycle ends in the Mayan calendar. Terence McKenna thinks the Eschaton will Immanetize. Other theories suggest the ice caps, having become wobbly from the gravitational pull exerted by the alignment of FIVE planets directly opposing the earth on 5-5-2005, will cause the crust of the earth to slip over the soggy innards, causing the ice caps to melt, and new ones to form. Of course, this will cause massive flooding, earthquakes, and general mayhem. All because the earth is slightly tilted, averaging about 23.5 degrees! (Refer to Graham Hancock's Fingerprints of the Gods for more background on this phenomenon. It ties in the Egyptians and other ancient civilizations, Atlantis, Osiris, star-charts, geological evidence, and hard physical evidence of the remnants of a lost, technologically superior pre-historic race.)
December 23, 679
The date that Dagobert II, a Merovingian King was murdered. Speculation, derived from the research of the highly controversial book entitled Holy Blood, Holy Grail, leads one to conclude this assassination was performed in connivance with the Catholic Church. The church leaders, unhappy with Dagobert's apparent policy of religious tolerance in his kingdom, located in the south of France, allegedly got him out of the way to best serve their own interests. A predecessor of Dagobert, Clovis, had an alliance with the Catholic church, so it is possible that church leaders saw Dagobert's actions as a betrayal of what was considered a long standing policy of pro-Catholic reforms.
