    If I remember right this prediction is based on the fact that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012.

    Given how difficult the computation and recording process was in the Mayan culture and time, I figure the guy who was making the calendar died before he got any further. I mean, how many mathematically talented stone carving calendar obsessed Mayans could there have been? Everyone else was perfectly content to just make copies, which was dedication enough considering the materials. ;)

    its more then just the Mayan calender, there are a few different groups like the Hopi Indians, Nostradamus... etc that all agree.

    What the naysayers neglect to tell you is that the alignment of the planets on December 21st occurs EVERY December 21st. Plus the Mayan calendar isn't ending, but merely starts the cycle over again.

    As an amateur astronomer we get asked these questions from the general public. That and the myth that every August, Mars will be as big as the Moon.

    Exactly what I was going to say. The bible says that no man will know the end of times....ONLY the Lord will know.

    SO no it is not the end.

    Will something happen? Possibly.....but it will not be the end.

    I really don’t think 2012 is the end of the world, as a few people have made predictions about the world ending in 2000 or 2006 and it never happened so what makes 2012 any different? It's just another silly prediction if you ask me.

    Ever notice the calendar stops because it ran out of room ? I'm thinking the guy just didn't want to start over on a bigger tablet.
    If you research it, it shows the other "prophets" were sniffing aluminum vapors, drinking different concoctions, etc to get their insight.
    I'm with the other Bible believers, we won't know until it happens because God said no one but He knows and got a laugh at the preachers who said they had an inside track to God back in 1999.
    Yes even we Christians don't know and are foolish if we say otherwise.

    In 1987 I received a little booklet in the mail, as did almost every other pastor in the U.S. It was titled "88 Reasons Why the World Will End In 1988." A year later it was revised to "89 Reasons Why the World Will End in 1989."

    There are websites that list the predictions of the end of the world. The one I like best is The millennium and end-of-the-world predictions.
    There have been tens of thousands of prediction of the end of the world. At least one every year, usually more than one. Some years, like 2000 get more attention. Any year ending in 0 gets more predictions of the end, double 00 gets even more and the triple 000 really sets off alarm bells. Now 2012 is getting lots of attention, for reasons already stated.

    I don't believe 2012 will be the end, any more than 2000 or 1000 was. What difference does it make? I try to live my life as if every day might be the last, and like I'll be around forever.

    Actually the world ended when the heavy collider at Cern was switched on.

    We haven't realised we're all dead and the figment of a dream by a tortoise floating in the abyss on the backs of four elephants who.........
