Will the World end in 2012?
1. NASA can detect metorites from 2 years away (none coming)
2. The World was SUPPOSED to end in 2000
3. If the governments believe in it we wouldn't be having the 2012 olympics.
4. The 2012 was predicted by people from thousands of years ago.
But What do people think?
No, the Mayans never predicted the world would end. That's just when their calendar ended. The History Channel made people think that the Mayans directly predicted the end of the world in 2012, when they didn't. And why would a calendar ending have any affect on the world ending? If we are going to go by calendars ending then we might as well say the world will end on December 31, 2009 because Hallmark hasn't printed any calendars for 2010! And were the Mayans brilliant scientists? No. Its like people saying Nostradamus predicting the world will end because of the LHC. Nostradamus was a moron. He didn't even know what a particle accelerator was because they weren't invented yet. People can't tell the future, and no the world isn't going to end in 2012. ~Wilson Yahoo Answers user
1. The Mayan count of days runs out of numbers, that's about the only fact.
2. The Mayans made no predictions about anything, except for seasons, solstices, full moons and eclipses, pretty much like we do, this sort of thing is fairly easy to do if you keep records and can do straight forward arithmetic.
3. The prediction that something big would happen in 2012 was invented maybe 20 years ago by a man called Jose Arguelles, he is a former LSD user, an astrologer and has claimed to be the re-incarnation of a Mayan priest among other peculiar things.
4. Since then a lot of other peculiar people and frauds have jumped on his bandwagon including the late Terence McKenna who "predicted" the future by taking drugs and by tossing coins.
5. Some say that the planets will line up. They won't and they can't. It would not mean anything if they did. They said exactly the same thing about the year 2000 which is another time the world was supposed to end. Back about 1958 a lot of the planets did almost line up and nobody noticed anything.
6. Some talk about galactic alignments of this or that. Most of these are not true, and the only one that is nearly right was closest in 1998. Nobody noticed anything. This does not worry the character behind it though. But I don't think he says the world is going to end either.
7. Planets X and Nibiru are invisible, have no size, have no mass and Nibiru can pass through the inner solar system repeatedly without affecting anything. In other words, they don't exist. X was invented by Nancy Lieder who claimed she was told about it by aliens who abducted her and now hears voices in her head.
Nibiru was cooked up by Zecharia Sitchin who invented it to sell books about aliens invading the Earth in ancient times and creating humans as slaves. He said it won't be back till after 2085.
8. There will be no pole shifts. Nancy Lieder claimed that planet X would cause a magnetic pole shift in 2003, but since it didn't happen she postponed planet X to 2012 to fit in with Arguelles ideas. Other people have invented solar flares and other things so they can have a pole shift. Solar flares cannot cause a magnetic pole shift on Earth, their magnetic fields are too weak by large factors.
9. Other predictions about the Sun are false or wrong. The next peak in solar activity is expected in the early - middle of 2013, not 2012 and the latest measurements show that the expected peak will be about average or even lower than average. Peaks in solar activity happen every 11 years. The worst that happens is that powers supplies can be cut in a few places for a few hours and some radio communications are disrupted.
10. Despite what some people say, there are no predictions about 2012 in the Bible, Nostradamus or any other old books. There was no prediction of 9/11 anywhere. These are straight lies.
11. There is no force that can cause a sudden shift in the geographic poles.
12. There are no known large asteroids or comets that are likely to hit the Earth in 2012.
13 The Institute for Human Continuity is owned by Sony pictures and is intended to promote the movie '2012'. It has no actual reality. The 2012 movie is based on Nancy Lieder's failed 2003 predictions.
14. The whole thing is either crazies raving or some others trying to make a few dollars by frightening some people into buying worthless junk or selling garbage shows to TV networks.
15. Most of the people worried about this are under 16. I do not know any adult that gives this material any consideration at all. They know it's garbage. ~http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090926165947AAgK2iC
Maybe they just ran out of numbers?
What do you think?
