    File this under wierd - Darren Daulton gets metaphysical.

    Some people think way too hard. Or they are former catchers with extended pill use-flashbacks.

    From foxsports.com


    Former Phillies' star gets metaphysical

    Former All-Star catcher Darren Daulton has been spending his time spreading his message — and it has nothing to do with baseball.

    A popular Phillies player during his baseball career, and the leader of the 1993 World Series team, has become a metaphysics advocate, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
    Daulton reportedly has described metaphysics as anything beyond sight, smell, touch, sound and taste — living in different dimensions, reincarnation, out-of-body experiences and numerology.

    As the Daily News says, it has nothing to do with the world around us.

    "I see life in a different perspective than I used to, in a way that's different from how most people see it," he said after a recent round of golf in Dunedin, Fla. "There's so much going on that we're not really aware of. Some people are privy to this. It's spoken of in the Bible. Some people are awakened to what's taking place."

    This is quite a stark contrast from the way in which most baseball fans remember Daulton as a player — rugged, stubborn and willing to play through pain of multiple knee surgeries.

    "We only know what we can perceive with our five senses. I have been, for whatever reason, awakened to other realms that are achievable by all of us. All I want to do is try to convey to everyone what I have witnessed.

    "I don't care if people believe me or not. If people want to take and run with it, fine. If they don't, that's fine, too."

    Apparently these ideas have been stewing for years. And the Daily News says he put them on paper while serving three months in jail last summer.

    He even has completed a 32,000-word manuscript, which is tentatively titled If They Only Knew.

    The 44-year-old Daulton said he first realized that more was happening than what meets the eye during the 1997 season after he had been traded to the Florida Marlins.

    He recalled getting a game-winning hit against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

    "That was the first time I realized it," he said. "I remember coming out of the stadium and I started crying. (His second wife Nicole, whom he is divorcing) said, 'What's wrong? You just got the game-winning hit.' And I said, 'I didn't hit that ball. Something happened, but it wasn't me.'"

    Daulton retired at the end of the 1997 season after helping the Florida Marlins win their first World Series. Since then, Daulton has had numerous problems away from baseball — including a horrific January 2001 car accident that led to a drunken driving arrest.

    Daulton reportedly claims the accident was a result of getting run off the road in lieu of a business deal with ties to the FBI and the White House.

    In boiling down his beliefs to one sentence for the Daily News, he said: "We need to stop judging each other. Because every one of us is on a different path."

    But there's more ... Daulton is convinced that the day of reckoning is coming. Specifically, on Dec. 21, 2012, at 11:11 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time, he told the Daily News that the chosen will simply vanish from this plane of existence.

    "That will be the end of this dispensation," he said. "I really don't know how to explain it. I don't know what words to use so people won't think I'm goofy. But by Dec. 21, 2012 (the last day recorded on the Mayan calendar), people will have a pretty good idea. It's all about consciousness and love. We have the ability to create whatever we want. We're all made of energy."

    You're right, Darren, that was some roided up version of who you were at the time, call him 'The Incredible Darren', if you will.

    This is the same guy who showed up to interview for the Manager's job with the Phillies in shorts and flip flops. Stay true to yourself Darren!! Geesh
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012#Ap...transformation

    Apocalypticism/Spiritual transformation

    The following predictions are theories based upon sources of varying origin and credibility. Many of these theories rely upon a decent amount of conjecture, and should therefore not be considered to be facts, but instead as theories.

    * The Olduvai cliff will begin and permanent blackouts will occur worldwide, according to "The Peak of World Oil Production and the Road To The Olduvai Gorge" by Richard C. Duncan.
    * Terence McKenna's Novelty Theory claims that time is a fractal wave of increasing novelty that ends abruptly in 2012.
    * December 21 - End of the great cycle of the Maya calendar's Long Count and a 26,000 year planetary cycle in the Aztec calendar, and thus the end of this Baktun (the end of the cycle is dated December 22 or December 23 by some calculations).
    * According to the 1997 book The Bible Code a meteor, asteroid or comet will collide with the Earth. Some believe this means the world will end. This event was supposedly prophesized by John the Evangelist as Wormwood in the Book of Revelation.
    * Tibetan Monks specialising in remote viewing predict that divine extra-terrestrials will intervene at a point where the world's governments are about to deploy weapons of mass destruction. Adding to this, the Tibetan Monks say that the world is not ready to be destroyed and that our Earth is blessed and being saved continuously from all kinds of hazards that Mankind is not even aware of.[4]
    * The Prophecy of the Popes, attributed to Saint Malachy, speculated that Pope Benedict XVI would reign during the beginning of the tribulation which Jesus spoke of, and sometime later a future pope described in the prophecy as "Peter the Roman", the last in this prophetic list, would appear, bringing as a result the destruction of the city of Rome and the Last Judgement. [5]. It is possible that Benedict XVI and Peter the Roman are the same person, according to some interpretations. [6]
    * Charismatic Korean religious leader Sun Myung Moon is talking extensively about the End of Restoration in 2012, and beginning of a New Sinless Time for Mankind. [7][8]
    * Some postulate that a Galactic SuperWave (A galactic superwave is a large quantity of gamma rays which are released at somewhat regular intervals from a Pulsar) will strike the Earth around the 2012 time frame, as discussed by Dr. Paul LaViolette. Also see Dr. Paul LaViolette bio, and Insight

    The end of the world is six years away, and someone or something is out there batting for Darren Daulton from beyond, and getting game winning hits.

    I guess I would be prone to do a lot of drugs too if something else was doing things for me and it made me cry.

    Sorry Darren, I just don't believe ya. Now if Dykstra would have told me that, it'd be a different story. Anyone that can put that much chewing tobacco into his mouth at once has to have some kind of help from beyond.

    GAC darlin, I hate to say this, but a lot of the poster here are just way too young to get that.

    You're an old fart, you need to remember that. :
