For the last dam time, I would like to point out that the mayan calendar does not end. just look at it, its a giant circle. all thats happening is the completion of one full revolution of the calendar.

i just saying this. so no one get mad at me. ppl say that since technologies r getting better that world's damage will b reduced but i think that just obsurd. to make technologies u use resources. even if the resource is really high once we ALL become dependant on it, it will reduce massively and that itself can create problems. i think that the humankinds destruction is gonna come one way or another caz nothing is forever. we all r also animals and overtime beings superior 2 us will make us extinct. things evolve. but the damage we already did is irreversable and no matter how hard EVERYONE in the WORLD tries, it may only make the day of destruction postponed. it cannot be stopped.

THIS IS JUST MY OPINION. DO NOT FLAME AT ME. i respect everyone else's opinions. =]

If the Mayans are true then maybe we're all screwed. Has anyone ever considered Revelation in the Bible btw?

Revelations is questionable as well, like Daniel and Isaiah. But I guess the end is going to happen someday.

The last day of the Mayan calender is actually debatable. That end on the Mayan calendar ends on their mystical number 13, but the real number of final is 20. The 13 starts on that day, but 20 is at 8000 A.D. That calendar is the end of their Long-Run calender, just like how our calenders end. Thinking about the end of something, like the end of 1999 to 2000, does bring some fear because it is odd and special. Like all predictions in the past, this one might also be another day. There is no doubt that the disasters will occur, but disaster that are world changing can occur any other day; it could even happen tomorrow or right now. The question is, what makes tomorrow different from that date if the same possibility of a disaster is totally random. There is no doubt that there will be an eventual end (meaning death and extinction), and we, as human, have no control when this too could happen. I say treat December 21, 2012 as any other day, but treat any other day with cautious, with joy and happiness, and as a precious gift.


Sounds like 9/11 for Americans. Some of the ppl who were sopposed to go to work at the Twin Towers actually didn't go because of suspicion and they were right. I'm pretty sure as the mayan 'doomsday' comes closer we'll definately get some signs and should soon get big enough to have some spot on the news closer and closer to the date.
But that sounds suspicious in itself, although they were right when the 'white-skin-bearded-one' came over but what are the conditions that the Mayans say doomsday will come?

I can just see it. If something does happen on that date, people will be like, "I told you so." But "I told you so," isn't going to solve anything, just like in 9/11. I will just stay with my philosophies and theories about the end. If the world was meant to end, then let it end, like we can do it anything about it.


The Mayans were able to predict that a white bearded guy was gonna come on a specific date. How can they not know the details of doomsday. Even 9/11 2K1 had some prophesy behind it, although the source of it was sketchy.

That is what I am talking about. Even if the predictions were right, there is little that we can do to deter from it. Even if we were to be prepared, one thing is still apparent, and that is that we are doom. The Mayans know about the "White" people, but they could do little to evade from "IT," you know opposition and eventual genocide. There is a possibility of the end on that date, but there is also a possible of the end tomorrow, or even the next minute.


Well I suppose your right. Prophesies are usually hard to interpret anyways and the Mayans actually thought something good was gonna happen when the white-bearded guy showed up (I swear it was either Christopher Columbus or some other explorer of the New World but I can't remember and I'm too lazy to look it up).

Anyways doomsday may not be doomsday for all of us. Now if the Mayan prophesies are parallel to the book of Revalation, maybe all true Christians will be spared from damnation and will be sent to heaven while everyone else is screwed. There's also a possibility that doomsday can span farther than one day. Perhaps Dec 21, 2012 will just be the beginning of the end.

Some prerequisites of the Christians apocalypse are not fulfilled yet; you know, the Anti-Christ and the Anti-Pope. There is no doubt that there will be an end and eventually extinction, but we just won't know how it would exactly be like or when, even the Bible is a bit hazy on this subject.

Random Thought:
- I read Revelations at a very young age (7 years old), and it scared the crap out of me. For the next years, I develop this sort of this pseudo obsessive compulsive disorder and paranoia being afraid of the end. Now, I am able to think about the end and apocalypse without paranoia because of the help and counseling from my church leaders, family members, personal research, and especially prayer and Jesus. Now, I am fascinated by the end times theories and conspiracies. I am still afraid of the end, but who isn't.


Death in general is just scary, and I hope Benedict isn't the anti-pope, he may not be good around crowds but his previous writings before support that he is parallel with the Catholic Church. I really hope Dec 21, 2008 isn't doomsday or even the beginning of it, although the latter seems possible.

I'll be in college on that date. If it doesn't happen and everything is hype, lucky us. If not, and a disaster occurs, there isn't much we can do. Let time play itself out and we will cross that bridge when we come to it. If many people die, all we can do is make the best out of what we have left, if anything. The Apocalypse, Mayan Predictions, Polar Shifts, Galactic Alignment, Death. If you let all of this scare you, Man's last hour will be pretty pessimistic. I say we should go out with a bang. (If we go out at all)

I`ve begun to ponder if this fate is true. Its evidence is undeniable. They state that a war will break out in all the world ( has happend). Massive nuclear warfare will riddle the planet. Oh yea and plagues will take 1/4 of the population. These are only proficiencies that they gave. But the most devastating is the earth shifting its poles. This detestation can annihilate all the inhabitants of earth. Its considered a fact that it has happened before.


Well first off, a plauge can't kill 25% of a world population that is impossible, at worst if a plauge were to strike it would do so in a limeted area, as in, Europe, US, Africa, or South America, and then it still wouldn't kill more than 10% of the population, so perhaps a realistic look on this would be 2% of the world population at worst, remember plauges are caused by a living organism (viral/bactirial/parasitic) and all living creatures have limits.

The poles shifting, yes thats a good one happend around 800 years ago too. Soooo, that ain't really no biggie unless you use a compass to find your way around... HOWEVER it could have some adverse effects on the enviroment (like increased UV radiation...), and it could cause a lot of interferance with electronics, but other that, nothing that haven't happened before.

We as humans have seen all of this before and we are still here... Because we can adapt and overcome.
UV radiation... hmm, wear sunscreen...
Polar ice melting, uhh, make a boat...

It's not like the world will suddenly end, that can't and won't happen.
