Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) was known as The Sleeping Prophet. He would go into
a sleep-like trace and give psychic readings for people.
This started when he was 24 years old and lost his voice after catching a cold. A friend recommended a hypnotist and while under Cayce was able to speak. Cayce correctly diagnosed his own condition and recommended a treatment that was successful. From then on Cayce was able to do this for others, going into a trance state and successfully diagnosing various medical conditions and treatments for thousands of people.
Not everything Cayce said in his sleep-like trance had to do with medical conditions and treatments. Some of what Cayce said during these readings had to do with end times prophecy. However, he never made any specific mention of 2012. As a matter of fact, the latest date Cayce mentions in his readings is 1998, a year, he says, in which a new age will begin.
What Cayce did say about this time (post 1998), and the catastrophic descriptions he gave, accuractly reflect the consequences of climate change. He didn't go into detail as to why these events would occur, but he was quite specific about what would happen.
Cayce said we "...will see a change in the physical aspect of the west coast of America. There will be open waters to appear in the northern portions of Greenland. There will be new lands seen off the Caribbean Sea, and dry land will appear...South America shall be shaken from the upper-most portion to the end, and in the Antarctic off Tierra Del Fuego, land, and a strait with rushing waters."
In another reading from 1941, Cayce said, "May portions of the east coast will be disturbed, as well as may portions of the west coast, as well as the central portion of the United States. In the nex few years lands will appears on the Atlantic as well as in the Pacific. And what is the coast line now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many of the battlefields of the present will be in the ocean, will be the seas, the bays, the lands over which the new order will carry on their trade as one with another.
"Portions of the new east coast of New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear. This will be another generation, though, here; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia, these will disappear. This will be much sooner."
Cayce also mentioned a pole shift and the melting of the ice caps, but again, he never mentioned a specific date.
Cayce's predictions of earth changes are very similar to what many researchers have concluded will happen in and around 2012. Without a specific mention of this date by Cayce, though, the evidence is purely circumstantial. Barring the introduction of some extraordinary force such as a pole shift, earth changes like what Cayce describes do take time and we have alredy been seeing them for years. It could very well be that Cayce was describing the events around 2012, he just never mentioned the date directly.
