Hello everyone,

Lately i've been hearing about 2012. BTW on my other thread i didn't say i believed in 2012.
Anyways,
When will people learn that 2012 is a BUSINESS not DOOMSDAY.
We all survived these predictions since they didn't happen.
The point is,
Stop getting on peoples nerves dooms dayers.
I have a really annoying friend at school forever saying 2012's real.
So hwo many fo you are annoyed with these predictions?
OMG! WE DIE EVERY NEW YEARS EVE THEN!
Wow a calendar ends so what

I don't believe 2012 is doomsday. I do believe that something big will happen, though. Not sure if it's negative or positive.

This "big thing" isn't the end of the calendar, though xD Something else...

^ What he said. There's this annoying church that keeps talking about it over and over again where I live. On Dec. 2012, I'm gonna laugh my freakin' arse off at them. So annoying..

You know...being absolutely sure that nothing's going to happen is just as arrogant and close-minded as the ones that are absolutely sure that something will happen. XD

Quite frankly, it doesn't matter. If the world ends, it ends and there's nothing we could have done about it. If it doesn't end, it doesn't end and we get to continue on with our lives. :P

If it is real, then we're doomed! D:
Naw..not really. I doubt anything will happen. I'm going to laugh my ass off at every arrogant minded person on the street who claimed such a thing to be real. It's very annoying >.>

Yeah, that's my mindset too.

People were so sure that something was going to happen on June 6th, 2006 (6/6/06) too. My school had a bomb threat for that day so pretty much nobody showed up, but those of us that did basically got a free day and tons of extra credit in our classes. Can't complain :P

LOL? that's quite amusing xD

anyway, @ 2012:
i dont think the world will really end..
the first time i learned about it in social studies, i googled it and it just sayed stuff about solar flares which could potentially disturb Earth, but oh well

even if the world did end, i'd be happy to die with everyone else rather than dying by myself.. LOL

Yeah, i'm 99.83% sure nothing will happen on 2012.
Except maybe a huge increase in crimes committed by the retards that think the world is ending.
I'm guessing Two Mayans were tasked with writing out a full calendar and when they eventually got to 12/21/2012 one turned to the other and said "Why the hell are we planning so far ahead? Let them continue the calendar themselves when the date comes. I mean, it's not like we'll be around anymore anyway, right?"

I guess its the movis 2012 that drove people insane to belive the world would end here lmao. All I believe is if the world does end that year then I have enjoyed my life and I would even sit off somewhere laughing for some reason although I really doubt the humanity will just die out in 2012. Oh well no ones really a psychic so how do we really know for sure. Untill the world really ends then I'm going to continue what I always do...enjoy every piece of life I have.

..For pete's sake, the Mayan calendar doesn't even end in 2012.

It goes in like cycles, if that makes sense. ):

Read this for more information on the Mayan calendar (http://curious.astro.cornell.edu/question.php?number=686).

Basically, it's like saying that the world is going to end on December 31, 2010 because it's the end of the Gregorian year. D;

Nobody ever said the world was going to end.
All that ever got said was the world as we know it was going to end.
That could be anything from the earths implosion to the coming of a new world order.
Who cares, just deal with it when it happens.
To think that its not possible is highly close-minded and obnoxiously ignorant.
And to the people that are annoyed by its priority as a topic of conversation, you're way to easily annoyed.

If it is doomsday then I've gotta bang a girl I don't give a **** because it's already ********. And oh, if there really was a meteorite wouldn't we be more prepared or something? Pure garbage.

I don't believe that anything apocalyptic will happen at all on 2012, you probably don't have anything to worry about. I find Apophis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/99942_Apophis) more logical than this thing.
Tell you what, I'll make a deal with everyone that believes in this end of the world thing. Give me $10, and if the world ends on December 21 2012, I will give you $100. Good deal, yes?

Not really. If there is a lack of evidence supporting the end of the world in 2012, then wouldn't it be the more logical assumption to believe something will not happen? You could say that not believing in rainbow farting unicorns is just as absurd as believing in them.

Based on other predictions that the Mayans made, that have come true (look up examples for yourselves, I dont have time to link you to specific documents) it is also somewhat illogical to completely dismiss this one entirely.
But like I said, its not the end of the world anyway, its the end of the world as we know it.
Huge difference.

Well if Apophis even comes near the Earth in 2036, i think technology would beat it. :D

It's more logical to believe nothing is going to happen. There have been up to thirty predictions that the world would end, coming from as early as 2,800 B.C. Never did. I highly doubt this will happen.

The world has been supposed to go under http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiMHTK15Pik times already.

It's not going to in 2012 either, which is why i've joined the facebook group "I'm going to wake up on December 22nd 2012 and laugh".

I read about a lot of stuff that would "happen" in 2012 that would make the world go under no matter what (something happening with the sun/Yellowstone going WTFBOOM/about 10 other things) but none of it made any sense at all
-especially when Wikipedia says Yellowstone has calmed down. xD

I think it would be pretty cool if the world ended. I wouldn't have to worry about stuff anymore.

Will it happen? Who knows. Nobody knows anything for certain. Could; could not. Only one way to find out.

The only possible good thing that comes about this whole "end of the world in 2012" thing is that people might start living their life to the fullest if they think they are going to die soon, but I don't really see that happening, so never mind.

The flip side is people might start going crazy (if they haven't already) and start killing others and then themselves if they feel cornered.

As for me, I don't really care if someone starts laughing at my face when the world supposedly ends in 2012 because there's obviously nothing we can do about it. There's really no sense worrying about it especially since anyone can unexpectedly die on any given date before they even get to see the outcome on 2012.

I heard about the 2012 thing a long time ago, and I heard about it in the sense that the Mayans truely meant - that it was the end of a cycle. Most of their cycles predicted ends of certain governments or whatever... so I guess something like that might come in 2012. I mean, the world is ready for change, definitely, we need to do a lot of things, and it's supposedly a new era and all beginning... so I think it's going to be a year of change. But I laugh at those idiots who think it will actually end too. It's something that's been blown way out of proportion, just like Y2K. 'Oh, the calenders on our computers might break' turned into 'OHMIGOD COMPUTERS ARE GONNA TURN INTO MANIC KILLING MACHINES AND TAKE OVER THE WORLD' (very compressed version, I know). But seriously, talk about media frenzy much?

2012 is not y2k, y2k is a misunderstandment of technology. 2012 is the doomsday predicted by the mayans, (For the life of me I can't remember his name...), and several Native American Tribes, and various cultures around the world. Okay so not too specific in that but it's so widespread in when it was predicted and recurring predictions since that makes it stand out so much.

Anyways as a quick list, here are the ways the world has been predicted to end by Science:
YellowStone- biggest volcano to erupt that could cover the entire world in soot and block the sun out for over ten years, basically Like venus for ten years. Not to mention Canda, U.S. and Mexico are dodging flaming balls of rock and a large portion of all three is being taken out by lava and earthquakes.

Magnetic Shift: Geologists predict it to happen, not if but when in the next few years (2012) or in the next 100,000 years. This would cause all computers to fry and anything else electronic, so basically end of the world due to anarchy and chaos. There is a computer under development that runs on light and not electrical components, but it's completion is in 2013, and public release 2018. Full integration of it would take another decade.

There are tons more but I'm only going to say one more, Massive Solar Storm. Oh it's just what, solar energy and it happens all the time right? Well it looks as if a massive one could be building up and remember the magnetic shift I told you about? Well same EMP effect. Anarchy and Chaos follow as well. :3

I'm not convinced anything drastic will happen in 2012, but anything is possible. And really, there's nothing you can do about it if something does happen, so I'm really not going to be living my life any different as that date approaches. It'll be business as usual for me, and in the off chance that something does occur, then so be it.

I'm pretty sure nothing will happen. So a bunch of people stopped their calender then. I wouldn't want to go on writing a calender for thousands of years either. They probably had better things to do.

No one who can think rationally believes in the 2012 doomsday scenario. The people who spread the word about it are just trying to make some money and get publicity from people saying how cool they are. No one really believes in scientology either.
