  • If it sounds unrealistic, then it is. This comes up at least once a decade.

  • 2012 is the end of the age of Pisces and the (sing along with me) "dawning of the age of Aquarius, age of Aquarius!"... It's supposed to be the age of enlightenment.. Gods, we can only hope so.

  • there are several past cultures that believed that december 21, 2012 is the end of days based on calculations they did regarding the cycles they believe the world goes through. The mayans for one. There's a history channel special on the whole thing. Its kinda interesting, especially regarding those cycles, but I also think you can make anything fit a mold if you want it to. And one thing the special tries to say is that armageddon (sp?) apparently doesn't mean an end of the world, just a big change (or something along those lines, just basically doesn't mean its all going to blow up) So maybe it could be something positive...or just a good reason to throw a fun birthday party- I'm born dec. 21 and am so doing an armageddon party! It doesn't really matter when the world ends- you can't stop it and it shouldn't change the kind of person you are :)

  • It's the end of the Mayan calender. That's pretty much it. The rest is internet and media mumbo jumbo made up to scare the shit out of gullible people.

    Don't be scared if you are. OUR calender "ends" every year on December 31st. Doesn't mean the world ends.

  • Some poeple like the mayans and Nostradamus beleive that is the end of th eworld and huge catastrophy will take place. As a Christiatian who believes in pre-rapture, Tribulation, ASrmageddon, and post rapture. It is highly impossible since the Tribulation is supposed to be 7 years ong. It hasn't started yet because if it did I would not be hear and it is not 7 years until 2012 is here.

  • I've read quite a bit about it, and to be honest, it confuses me. LOL It is supposed to be an end of an age, an era. And if I've understood it correctly (please correct me if I'm wrong) only we as humanity can dictate the outcome to be either enlightenment or catastrophe.

  • There are those who are predicting that the end of the world will come in 2012, but people have been attempting to predict this since the beginning of time. The bottom line is that only God knows when the end will be, and His time is not our time.
