cant say that i do know any thing about this prediction.
many predictions about this and many predictors come and go. how can u put any credence in any of them?
this group of responses seems to be considering the end based on secular resources.
my basis for determining the outcome of the future about such galactic events rests on a book and a being who has repeatedly demonstrated His infaliblity and omnipotence. what He says Is what im banking on!

The Mayan calendar was calculated somewhat differently IMHO.
So we are deriving a date from scientific evaluation (since the Mayans also used a different "scale" for tracking time). This is why there is some dispute on the actual date, but not the year.

If I recall offhand, December 21, 2012 is 'the end' of the Mayan calendar and the beginning of the 13th Baktun, ergo 'the end' of the 12th baktun as well, no?

Have we seen the passing of a civilization before? How about that guy in the ark? When you cheer the survivor, have you forgotten the passing of the less fortunate?

JMHO,

On a long enough time line, everyones chance for survival goes to zero.

I thought I'd heard May 5, 2012, but I may be misremembering.

There's also the Age of Aquarius. There's some uncertainty about when it actually begins. Some have said it won't be another 500 years, but others are putting it early this century.

And let's not forget the prophecies of Malachi. He predicted a succession of Popes. The last one goes by the appelation Peter the Roman. The current Pope is actually the last one before Peter the Roman. Historically Popes do reign very long. Maybe Benedict will die in 3.5 years as per Revelations. Then in 2012 the end of the world comes.

Of course it's only the end as we know it. The Catholic Church will cease to exist. Christianity will become a minor cult. With each new Age a new religion becomes prominent. In the Age of Taurus there was Mithraism with its bull sacrifice. In the Age of Aries there was Judaism with the sacrifice of lambs. In the Age of Piceses there was the sacrifice of the fisher of men. So in the Age of Aquarius there will be the sacrifice of the Water Bearer, whatever that means.

Yeah, it's a bunch of crap, but maybe we can use 2012 as an excuse to make a better world?

Computer clock rollover bug - worse than Y2K. Some people are already starting to feel its effect


LOL: ) and how 'exactly' BAD was "y2K" ?

a lot of hype, thousands of consultants made billions of $$ , but virtually no impact on most people..

NOT the end of the world. Go to the NATIVE SPIRITUALITY Forum. I explained myself there. Earth CHANGES, but not the complete destruction of all life. Have some faith, guys! Power of the mind & positive thinking can work wonders!

Think positively. If the World does end in 2012, at least all Cliff Richard's records will be wiped out of existence, including the execrable Millenium Prayer, a disc that has been voted the worst UK Christmas No.1 ever....

Shame about the loss of Devil Woman though I suppose...

Yes, that's a good one in which Cliff sings some high notes, and worth lamenting the destruction of if the world goes up in flames. Oh well..
