    if the only 'proof' we have for this happening is a more primitive race of people believing that their gods would destroy the world I don't see why anyone would believe this


    especially as they believe that the world has already been killed and reborn again with the same intervals (this being the fourth world) and we know the universe / Earth to be far older than what they say, so their view of the universe (or Earth) being destroyed at the end of their calendar is obviously incorrect



    I'm no Maya buff so I may be getting some of the facts wrong so feel free to correct me if I have done so

    p.s. the race of people are called the Maya, Mayan is an adjective to describe things pertaining to the Maya so stop referring to them as Mayans

      I believe that nuclear war will end us all. All one needs is a nutjob getting his hands on the material needed and the balls to launch a nuke. Then the retaliation will begin, probably launching more nukes. And I figure you all get the idea.

      Right now, Iran is worrying me since they don't like Israel and they might be developing a nuclear weapon despite what they say. Plus Israel won't hesitate to retaliate against a possible Iran attack and there might be others jumping into the mix with a nuclear capability.

          The fact that this is predicted to happen sucks because I have not begun to live my life. This "dooms day" seems very unrealistic and is mot likely not going to happen. As I recall, this isn't the first, the second, or the third time they tried to predict the end of the world. Our world is going to end because of a calender or predicted belief? Most likely not. New era, new beginning, I see no reason why it should mean the death of our planet.

          The two logical explanations to this planets end would be the death of our sun and possibly global warming. (still not entirely sure on that matter) If this does happen, I might want to be in the air rather than the ground.

          The Mayan Calendar goes on and on and on for eternity, it's just the 5,000 year cycle (so this happened many times already and will continue to happen) that happens to end on the 21st. That's really it.

            I'll be too busy counting the number of Christmas presents in my big black bag to care about end-of-the-world theories. I think there will be no end to the world, maybe an end to the world as we know it, but I believe the Earth will never die. It seems we as the human race have been manipulated to believe that this or that will happen on this day. We're stuck with ideas that have never done us any good, but we believe it to be the truth. As a result, we are so rigid in our way of thinking that we reject, mock, discredit, or even try to silence any new ideas, thoughts, and suggestions because we think "that's too crazy to be true." Well, I've learned that we as human beings have the ability to turn thoughts into things. Only a very small percent of the world's population know how to properly do that though, which is why it is subject to much criticism and controversy. It's been kept secret, but it's always been there.

            There's an old quote from someone who studied the mind for years:

            "We think in secret and it comes to pass. Environment is but our looking glass."

            If people want to argue over what will happen on "doomsday," you go ahead and knock yourselves out. :) I on the other hand will worry about my life and what I can do to improve it. Nobody likes thinking about doomsday, so why do it? Why not think about Christmas? Do people really know if the world's going to end? I think it's time to snap out of it and learn to take control of our own lives and our own minds again. My life has improved greatly since I changed the way I think a year ago.

            I'm 99.9% sure it's a load of BS, they've predicted the end of the world 45465786832 times and I'm still alive. :P

                  The world won't end. And if it does... what does being right mean anyway? We're all still dead. Doomsday theories are funny... People should focus on actual issues instead of wasting time on concepts that have, time and time again, proven to be breathtakingly false.

                    Geologically Speaking, the planet itself is extremely unstable. Global Warming, Volcanic Eruptions, and a handful of Natural Disasters are already tearing this world apart piece by piece. It's only a matter of time before It hits the scar hard enough to puncture it.

                    As for the 2012 apocalypse. I'll believe it when I see it. I honestly don't think that hundreds of millions of people will commit suicide, and Floods will engulf the landmass, and Asteroids will crash into our planet.

                    First of all: There is no astronomical evidence suggesting that an Asteroid will hit us in the near future.

                    Second of all: There's NO possible way for such a massive amount of water to accumulate and flood the earth in such a short period of time.

                    Third of all: If hundreds of millions of people were going to commit mass suicide on such short notice, surely we would have heard of it by now. No one can keep a secret that intense.


                    I'm not sure there will be an apocalyptic event anytime soon.. but perhaps as this planet grows more and more fragile, we'll see a change in the climate and temperatures, and THAT will be our undoing instead of some boasting theory about Asteroids, Suicide, and Flooding. I'm just trying to think on the logical side of things is all...

                    If anything is going to destroy our world, I presume it will either be a Chain of random disasters, or a rogue Solar Flare from the sun which burns us all to a crisp. Just my theories. :3

                      I don't believe that such an event can happen. We're not gods, so we can't predict what happens except God and the others. We're not superhuman or advanced mediums. But the Winter/Summer Solstice AT THAT EXACT DAY is coming with 24 hours of Daytime/Nighttime at the opposing hemispheres and that's a fact based on the observation of Earth.

                        The Maya are sitting on fluffy clouds all asking each other 'Did you say something about the End of the World?', 'No way, not me' and 'Well someone must have said something!' as they watch us with confused looks on their faces.

                          It's a mis-understanding hyped to hell and back by modern society.

                          They meant it's the beginning of a new cycle, in which humanity would awaken to all the corruption and **** controlling the world today, and damn they were accurate. Look around.


                          Paradise on earth. Not only the maya, but many indigenous cultures around the world point the same thing. Again, look around, it's been really hectic lately. Climax before the conclusion.

                          My thinking is, let's wait and see, because ultimately having an opinion on this doesn't really matter much. Let's go into the new mayan Bak'tun cycle and see what it brings.

                          Happy galactic alignment everyone.

                          It's amazing how all these predictions based on zero evidence of any kind cause most of us to go all "I'm sure nothing will happen but I'm a bit worried just in case". Amazing how the human mind works.

                          Ah well, planetary catastrophes don't come out of thin air so if something were happening, I'm sure someone would have picked it up by now.

                          I HIGHLY doubt that the world is going to end on December 21, I got a yogurt that expires on December 24.

                          I think I read somewhere that the Mayans celebrate the end of an era, not the end of the world, on the 21st. I'll try and dig up a link later if I can.

                          All calenders have to end at some point, end of story. Literally there's nothing more to it.

                          I'm honestly baffled at how much traction this has managed to sustain with that knowledge in peoples heads.

                          Even if you're are only talking about in jest, there are a lot funnier things.

                          Why give it any attention at all?

                          ^ what counterfeit said, and also it's just ridiculous. I can't believe there are people who are actually preparing for this and whatever, people are seriously delusional.

                          I doubt all of this is real so. :T
                          Though I'm curious...do you guys think any people will off themselves to "escape" from dying in a more painful way?

                          A Bak'tun ends on the 21st. Think of it like a really long Mayan month - like their version of New Year's Eve. The Calender itlself goes on and on for Octillion of years. (And yes that's an actual number)

                            Paradise on earth. Not only the maya, but many indigenous cultures around the world point the same thing. Again, look around, it's been really hectic lately. Climax before the conclusion.

                            My thinking is, let's wait and see, because ultimately having an opinion on this doesn't really matter much. Let's go into the new mayan Bak'tun cycle and see what it brings.

                            Happy galactic alignment everyone.
                            This has me thinking about what's really going to happen in Dec. 21. The world is not going to end, and instead, it will be the end of the U.S. government because of our bad economy. It then creates a domino theory to other governments, thus ending their government. Everyone will be free from their corrupted masters and will do whatever they want with no rules to restrict them, which will eventually lead to their own demise after failing to fix environmental issues in which they have created.

                              I don't think the world is going to end next week and the winter solstice is just a coincidence i think.But this thing has been hyped up so much that there are going to be some stupid people going around and starting riots making it unsafe to go out.

                              Our civilization will end some day no doubt but it will probably be due to overuse of our environmental resources.
