Whats your opinions of this?? My mother has been talking my ear off since seeing a show about the end of the world..Is it believable? I don't know where I stand.. if you don't know what I'm referring to, you can google end of the world 2012 and theres a bunch of websites about it.. Is it basically the same hype as Y2K??

I don't believe it.

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man." (Mt. 24:26-29)

I agree with this.

This refers to the Myan calender.. which so far has been right in predicting so many of the worlds events. Here's a website for it.... http://www.december212012.com/


I missed the documentary that was on discovery, but my ex saw it and said it was kinda scary on how accurate the calender really was.

The mayans did not predict that to be the end of the world. It was just the end of their calendar. Do you really expect for their calendar to go on forever?

Who are you responding to? Or just "you" in general?

DH has been obsessed with this for quite a while now, and without clicking on the links, my response is that this can be interpreted in various ways. I believe that it will be the end of the world as we know it, similar to the Renaissance or a global reformation or enlightenment.

Personally, I don't believe it. I saw a video on YouTube once that the whole issue is that a "planet" will be passin gclose to us and so the earth's axis will shift and all sort of nasty stuff will happen. Actually the video looked quite scientific until they started putting in every single disaster scene in movie history. They only missed "Godzilla"... And after it turned into a ranting on how the government is hiding this from us because it's controlled by money hungry businesses, they lost any credibility they could have with me. I'm not exactly a tycoon, but it sounds to me like if 1/3 of the world's population (something like that) dies, that can't be good for business...
I guess if you do a search on "planet X", it comes up.

I saw that documentary, it was pretty interesting. Like Beth said, I'm more inclined to believe it was just the end of the calendar; but I could be swayed to believe that the poles' position could change. It's happened previously, apparently, where places like Antarctica were tropical. I don't know if it would end the earth, just change the environment.

I actually read somewhere (I should find the link) that says that you should stock up on all religion literature, so when the world ends, and we "find out who was right" you can easily "convert". SMH.

As far as the OP, here is a little story, in 1994 , there was all this talk about the world ending, books published, etc, and I actually sat outside on "Doomsday" and waited...and waitedd....and when the sun went down, my mom yelled out "I know you are excited to see the world end, but that doesn't excuse your curfew" ...Ok fine, I was 11, my point is, I'll believe it when I see it. I already waited around once.

The poles can and have reversed in the past, but a) it takes hundreds or thousands of years I think, and B) it would never make Antarctica tropical. The magnetic north & south pole would reverse locations, the smallest effect of which would be that every compass would be messed up and the largest would be all kinds of disasters, in theory, as the earth would rotate the other way - but the magnetic poles would still be at opposite ends of the earth and therefore the same distance from the equator, and therefore from the sun, and remain similar temperatures. The Arctic and Antarctic are both very cold now... they'll stay that way IF the poles shift.

This is of course assuming we haven't melted all the polar ice caps due to global warming by 2012.

I don't buy this.

The Mayan calendar doesn't actually "end" in 2012, but the winter solstice of 2012 (so December 21, roughly) is when the current "Great Cycle" is set to end - which even by Mayan standards would only signal a change in the world, not the end of it.

This link is pretty interesting:

I don't believe it and I agree with the people who've said the current cycle in the Mayan calendar is set to end, not time entirely. It is interesting to note that the bible code says something similar, can you tell I watch too much apocalypse week on the discovery channel? , with a comet impact. Oh and it also says yellowstone volcano is supposed to erupt a couple of years earlier (2010 I think).
