I had a blast today browsing online and reading about dooms day theories.
The most popular now is off course the Maya Calendar aka that it ends 2012.
I am not judging anyones view, i just find it fascinating with mass hysteria.
Though, the fascinating with 2012 is that there have never been so many theories that supports the same year.
Some of the theories regarding 2012:
Galactic alignment
Timewave zero and the I Ching
Geomagnetic reversal
Black hole alignment
Web Bot project
Maya Calendar

So, what is your view?

Of Mayan Descent here ~_~ While the long count Calendar does end in 2012 Guess what it starts again!! Lol! What 2012 is seen by the Mayan Calendar is as a year of destruction and renewal not apocalyptic ending. One has to keep in mind that much of the writings that fully explain Mayan beliefs, Myths, superstitions etc are fragmentary. Much of the knowledge of the Maya were destroyed by the conquistadors with only 5 books surviving. Without a larger context to place them in it's hard to know what exactly they predicted.

My view, for what it's worth, is that this is all complete rubbish based on a misinterpretation of the way that the Mayan calendar works. If the world ends in 2012, I'll eat my hat.

Well, I believe that when the world ends we won't know it's coming, it'll be a total surprise. I don't think we can really predict when it'll end.

I just don't believe the end of the world. If it REALLY happened, then, I'll die around the people I love. That's all. x)

But I saw the movie, though. lol x)

Well, if there's any scientific evidence of such a thing, I'll consider the possibility... but I don't expect the world the just... collapse inward on itself, or crumble into dust, or go spiralling uncontrollably into space...

I suppose something will happen :-?? some kind of climatic change or stuff, 'cause there is scientific proof of these kinda things, like earth temperature increasing/decreasing and ice blocks melting (which they already do, btw). I'm not expecting some magical WOOSH and the world disappears just like that, but I do think things will change. They are changing right now too, after all.

Maybe the world won't be the same in 2012, but I don't think it will be the end... All electronic systems were supposed to crash in 2000, but that didn't happen!

But... i believe if people are extremly confident about the end in 2012, well something will probably happen: They will be so convinced that they will provoque themselves the apocalypse.

Human minds can be so easily influenced...

About the Mayas, I suspect this is similar to Nostradamus prophecies, sure it has to do with the astronomy's knowledge of that time (which is said to be huge), but it must have been translated and explained in the most alarming way so it can sell in the form of books, esoteric tv shows, movies (there is a new one right now on cinemas). Then the day will arrive and pass and we'll go on with our lives as before.

Umm it might be easier for people to post their views if they weren't buried under replies from April 2006. :D

As for me I doubt it. There are a lot of things that I believe need to happen before the world properly ends, and I doubt that they'll all happen in the next 3 years.

Meeeh, something will happen but not the apocalypse, I believe. I've seen those Nostradamus Effect episodes and it's interesting how much information they gather yet they can't get the right results. :/ It's interesting...all the 2012 stuff. Why is it mentioned now? In late 2009? I've known of it since I was young, and was interested in it but now, it still does interest me...but to an extent.

I believe that SOMETHING will happen, but not the end of the world.
All the horrible things that humans have done to the planet are bound to come crashing down sometime soon.
I guess 2012 would be the year for that.

something interesting....i went to Mexico last summer and visited the Mayan Temple Chichen Itza and we had a tour guide who was actually of Mayan descendant...he told us that the Mayan calender does end in 2012 but it doesn't necessarily mean apocalypse, i think it just means that the calender starts over so i wouldn't worry :P

I recently watched a TV documentary and it tackled this topic. At the end, it concluded that the world won't end according to the Mayan calendar, but we will enter a new era of a better life. Even Mayans who they interviewed excluded the fact that the world will end. They all agreed that we will enter a new phase never experienced before in this world. It should be for the better as well.

Hmm, if the world will end 2012??
Nah, I dont think it will, many times they have said 'THE WORLDS GOING TO END WE ARE ALL DOOMED' and nothings happened. (sorry for the caps, it just makes it look more dramatic haha^_^)
It was also said to be the end this year and nothings happened.

If by a small chance the world actaully does end 2012, I really dout anyone would be able to do anything haha nor stop it from happening now for the future becuase its all just theroies at the moment still hehe ^_^
So yup, thats my view :D

This is how my family has always looked at it..

''End of the world'' (as we know it?) can mean lots of different things.

Maybe there is going to be an epidemic.. the next Black Plague and a huge population of people are going to die. Maybe a political leader will be assassinated and the world's government and/or polictal structures will all go awire.

Maybe some freak occurance is going to happen and the Sun will die way way too early and swallow the Earth in fire destroying all the life on our planet in moments.

:shrug: No way to know.

Probably it could happen, but everything was staying in what each of us we believe, I believe that if a big change happened serious for the humanity...
Out of it, I believe that the only ones that can make the change in the personality, be able to anticipate this way all that, are we...
make a change and be the progress of the humanity, and u will see a new dawn...

hm i guess there will something happen. but maybe not viewable. hopefully something that changes the human mind. or i would also say time has come for the world to end. she had to carry us bad humans long enough. we hurt her all the time. so i could understand if she would throw us out 2012. at least most of us.

I think everyone's freaking out a bit too much over it. When they hear one 'end-of-the-world' theory, they immediately start trying to find some sort of connections with other things that happen at that time, and blow it right out of proportion.

This situation sounds a whole lot like Y2K.
