Speaks for itself…..
No, it wonвЂ™t. None of the claims by the doomsday prophets are based on science, just wild speculation.
The Mayans didnвЂ™t predict doomsday. It is just the end of the current cycle of their Long Count calendar.
Nostradamus didnвЂ™t predict it. He never mentioned 2012 and all the Nostradamus ":quotes": being thrown around aren’t what he actually wrote. They are what some people have decided that he meant. Even Nostradamus scholars don’t agree on how the various centuries and quatrains should be interpreted.
The Bible never mentions 2012 or references it in any way. It talks about the end times, but there is no mention of when.
There is no actual scientific theory or evidence that anything unusual is going to happen in 2012. It is a collection of myths and disproven theories being promulgated by doomsday predictors, who predict a new one every few years.
This timing is based on the end of the current cycle of the Mayan long count calendar. Their calendar was done in ages or cycles and their years ended at the winter solstice. The current cycle ends December 21, 2012. The Mayans didnвЂ™t predict the end of the world, only the end of that cycle.
Nibiru (Planet X) doesn’t exist. Zecharia Sitchin is not a scientist, but is an author of books promoting the ancient astronaut theory for human origins. He attributes the creation of the ancient Sumerian culture to the Annunaki (or Nephilim) from a hypothetical planet named Nibiru in the solar system. The Doomsayers predicted that it was to hit Earth in 2003. Undaunted when it didn’t show up, they just moved it out to 2012 to coincide with the end of the current cycle of the Mayan calendar.
Alignment of Solar System with galactic plane вЂ“ There is no galactic alignment occurring in 2012. It takes 36 years to precess through galactic equator, and we will be 6 degrees off in 2012. Even if we did have an alignment, it would have no effect on us. The vast distances involved outweigh the effects of gravity.
Planetary alignment вЂ“ it is impossible for all the planets to form a straight line out from the Sun (or viewed superimposed on each other in the sky) because each planetary orbit is tilted slightly with respect to the Earth’s orbit. John Gribbin in the late 1970’s book The Jupiter Effect predicted the end of the world would occur in 1983 due a once in a millennium planetary alignment. The 1983 event was ALL the other planets lined up as seen in our view of the sky — not in a straight line as most people would misinterpret with the term alignment. In 1999, The Survival Center had claimed the destruction of the Earth to occur in May 2000 due to the ":planetary alignment.":
Asteroid Apophis – the collision alert was for 2029, and was canceled after additional observations showed it would not hit us.
Geomagnetic reversal – These reversals of the magnetic field have occurred in the past, as shown by magnetic striping, but we canвЂ™t predict when they will occur again. However, the time between reversals is not constant, varying from less than 100,000 years, to tens of millions of years.
Although fast by geological standards, reversals are by no means quick on the human time scale. They take roughly 5,000 years, with estimates ranging from 1,000 years to 8,000 years.
Homo Erectus and their ancestors survived previous reversals. There is no evidence of any extinctions resulting from these reversals. Although the inspection of past reversals does not indicate biological extinctions, present society with its reliance on electricity and electromagnetic effects (e.g. radio, satellite communications) may be vulnerable to technological disruptions in the event of a full field reversal.
Photon belt – We are not heading for a photon belt in the Pleiades. The earth isn’t heading toward the Pleiades but away from them. In the 1850s it was conjectured that the earth orbited the Pleiades, but this has long since been discredited. No photon belt or other such region of increased energy has been discovered. Photons in any case are merely particles of electromagnetic energy, which we commonly experience as light. Upon exposure to excess photons the most common transformation of your being is sunburn.
Solar flares вЂ“ These do increase and decrease in an eleven year cycle. They haven’t caused any serious problems in the past. The direct effects of solar flares are mainly related to communications and radio transmissions. We had a major series of solar flares in 2005.
No. That’s a hoax.
