I know this topic is discussed a lot but I thought, if the world were to really end next month, wouldn’t tragic things be happening right now? I think many natural disasters would be happening or some drastic changes but clearly there isn’t anything that horrible happening at this moment. Does it make sense? There would be some major changes and catastrophes right now if the world were to really end on December 1st, 2012. That is my opinion and I would like to know if it makes sense and want to know of any other opinions.
Q: What is the origin of the prediction that the world will end in 2012?
A: The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012. Then these two fables were linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 — hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012.

If there was a planet-sized object close enough to hit Earth less than a month from now, it’d be the biggest, brightest object in the night sky.
-It’d also be visible during daytime as well.
But there’s nothing to see because it’s all just a stupid conspiracy hoax.
From Mayan experts:
":Mayans never predicted world to end in 2012: experts":
":(Reuters) – If you are worried the world will end next year based on the Mayan calendar, relax: the end of time is still far off.
So say Mayan experts who want to dispel any belief that the ancient Mayans predicted a world apocalypse next year.
":We have to be clear about this. There is no prophecy for 2012,": said Erik Velasquez, an etchings specialist at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).":

No, it does not make sense. ":Signs": of the EOTW are a religious invention and have no relation to reality, unless ":your": reality includes some kind of supernatural EOTW.
Now just suppose that the Earth is about to get whacked by radiation from a supernova 156 light years away. A deadly radiation pulse is heading here at the velocity of light. But if we look at the star we see it as it was 156 years ago and there is no hint of anything about to happen soon, Same goes for asteroids, though we might see them coming. They have no effect at all until they hit the atmosphere. And if it was a big volcano somewhere that is about to blow, how does that affect the other side of the world until after it blows up? Do you have any other vaguely realistic scenarios?
All doom in 2012 questions are getting the same answer from me as they do not deserve an unique answer. There are more than 53,000 questions about this on Y!A and no asker except the first had the courtesy to use the search box.
What’s the end of the world on 21 December 2012 going to be this time?
The solar system passing through a ":photon belt": near Alcyone? Good story, but photons do not form belts, Alcyone is moving away from us and it was all supposed to happen about 1958.
The return of Jesus, yet again? How many dates have been predicted for that?
Planet X which was supposed to be here in May 2003 having another go at us? Why can’t we see planet X if it’s a month away? Why could we not see it in 2003 when it was first supposed to be here?
Invasion of the annunaki from Nibiru looking for gold? Why can’t we see Nibiru if it’s a month away?
The rapture, yet again? How many dates have been predicted for that?
All the planets in the solar system lining up, even though they cannot and will not, and doing . . . something somehow? Must be magic because it sure will not be gravity. Wasn’t that supposed to happen in 1999?
Solar flares, which happen around five times a week on a long term average.
Coronal mass ejections on the Sun which are fairly common – like the one on 14 July 2012. Notice anything, did you?
A line up of the Sun and the Earth or something with the centre of the galaxy, which comes vaguely close twice every year is supposed to do . . . something? Must be magic because it sure will not be gravity.
The solar system crossing the central plane of the galaxy, when we don’t actually know where that is?
Aliens invade (no, not the annunaki)?
Prophecies that the Maya didn’t make will be fulfilled?
Prophecies that the old French faker Nostradamus didn’t make will be fulfilled?
The people behind this are scammers after your money for a worthless book, you as an audience of a radio or TV show or your clicks on a web site which mainly advertises other fraudulent material and fake science, fake religion and fake medicine.
Why would tragic things be happening now if the world is not supposed to end until December 21?
If we were hit by a gamma-ray burst from a dying star thousands of light years away, everything on the side of the earth facing the GRB would be vaporized and we would have no warning. There could be one approaching us as we speak.
A Coronal Mass Ejection from the Sun produces an electro-magnetic pulse that could shut down our power grid for a few months if it were to directly hit the earth.
If the super volcano at Yellowstone erupted, it could put enough ash into the atmosphere to block out sunlight for a few years. Without sunlight, most of the plants on earth would die. And we’d have nothing to eat.
The chances of any of these happening on December 21st are minute. But one of them could happen. We’ll have to wait and see.
No the world will not end on December 21, 2012 or so.
The the Mayan calendar does not really predicted the end of the world in 2012 on December 21. It is only indicated as being the end of a 13th major cycle and there are other dates mentioned beyond it. The notion of a ":Great Cycle": coming to an end is completely a modern invention.
However we do seem to be in the end times period of history in this year of 2012. For example, Jesus predicted for the end times seem to be on the increase now such as false Christs, wars and rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes. (See Matthew Chapter 24) We are seeing more and more of these things. So while the end is not in December, we will continue to see an increase in natural disasters, especially earthquakes. Probably in the next few years we could see a big earthquake in the center of the USA on the New Madrid fault.
According to those who have studied Bible prophecy, we will experience a 7 year period called the Great Tribulation (before the 2nd coming of Christ) in which ":the beast": or anti-Christ will rise up to rule the world. This world leader will bring in a cashless system in which no one can buy or sell without a mark on the right hand or forehead. This will most likely be a microchip implant with all financial information.
вЂњIt also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.вЂќ (Revelation 13:16-18)
There is now a big push towards one world government and the microchip implant technology. Politicians talk more about the need for global governance and a new world order. Microchips are now being used on around 8 million pets in the USA and are now being used on humans for medical ID and security. More systems are being set up to discourage and stop the use of cash.
When the microchip cashless system is fully put into place, do not receive the mark! All who get it will be condemned forever.
We could soon be catapulted into a worldwide government with a cashless system. When chaos occurs, people can get desperate and turn to powerful government control.
The US government now has over 16 trillion dollars in debt. There are over 600 trillion dollars worth of derivatives (bundled debts) circulating in the financial world and much of that is toxic A number of analysts are predicting 2012 or soon after to be a time of economic chaos. Gerald Celente of the Trends Institute says that in 2012 we will likely have an вЂњeconomic 9/11вЂќ. This could be accompanied by war with Iran and/or collapse of the US dollar. There could be shortages of food and starvation in the USA.
While 2012 will not be the end of the world, we may see economic chaos and a march toward one world oppressive government. So we should prepare ourselves practically and also spiritually. Be ready to oppose this mark of the beast.
We have all broken Gods laws such as stealing, lying, pride, hatred, selfish ambition, and so on. We are all are guilty before God. Jesus paid the penalty for all our wrongdoings on the cross. People can receive forgiveness and eternal life only though receiving him as Lord and Savior. Those who do never have to fear death or the end of the world.
it will be twist of destiny it will be genuine. I hate even as human beings say its a similar element as all the different doomsdays because its not. human beings say itll be like Y2K even as Y2K had to information and no different cultures from the previous envisioned it. The Hopis, Mayan, and Nostradamus anticipate some thing to take position in december 2012. I also hate even as human beings say that Nostradamus envisioned the end of the international on 12/21/2012 because he didnt. His predictions bypass all a thanks to the twelve months 3737 for the human race. although, he did anticipate an asteroid to hit contained in the month of december contained in the twelve months 2012. Is it a twist of destiny that those 3 cultures envisioned a similar element interior a similar month of a similar twelve months? perchance, perchance not. even if it really is an asteroid going to hit and it is going to likely be deadly experience, the percentages are we wont bypass extinct as a species. We would lose distinct what we’ve properly this second yet we wont be lengthy gone. also if its an asteroid we would have a three twelve months caution, a three month caution, a three day caution, or no caution in any respect. we are at the moment scanning the skies for asteroids, yet funding is inadaquate and it wouldnt be unbelieveable for astronomers to omit an asteroid thinking they are very not consumer-friendly to discover. So my opinion to you is merely to bypass on which includes your existence. you’re gonna die ultimately even if itll be in 2012 or 2080. Hell who’s conscious you would possibly want to die the following day so merely stay your existence. i in my view imagine that some thing will take position on that day. yet im not likely to stay my existence hectic about that day and being scared. Im not likely to make any arrangements because IF each and every thing Nostradamus envisioned is the destiny then it has to take position for him to foretell it. for this reason you cant end some thing even if it really is envisioned by making use of a guy that said the destiny. i’ll also spend hours on the Mayan calandars yet im not up for that so yeah…desire this helped.
No one is so important that the world will end they are saying it will because the Mayan calendar stops but the calendar was also found on an almost isolate island only approachable by canoo and if you use technology the place on that island is the best spot to see the solar or lunar eclips that will happen on that day
A chap I used to work with was convinced the world was going to end in 1984, until I pointed out it was just the title of a George Orwell novel, the title of which Orwell had got from transposing the last two digits of the year in which he wrote it.
The Mayan calendar thing is so blown out of proportion.
Though, it could be something like that cr*appy movie predicted, and suddenly the Earth’s crust just breaks down, and we don’t know until it happens. Though, I tend to not put my faith in lackluster Hollywood movies.
Makes tons of sense.. Everyone try’s to scare me though because my birthday is dec.22 (it doesn’t work) like you said there would be horrible things happening at this moment. But there’s obviously not!
It will be sunny, perhaps partly clouded and maybe with intense clouds and gale force winds, but criminals would still be robbing banks and dealing druggs, politicians would still lie and hunger in Africa would not diminish a bit, tycoons would still enjoy their profits and employees will be working dilligently…The end of the World ? Give me a break…
