The mayans made a calendar that each ends in a cycle of 5000-something years. And the last one they made before mysteriously disappearing just happens to be on 2012.

I think all this is silly. So a long Mayan calander ends, why do people think the world will end just because of that?The world is not going to end. I think the Mayan civilization simply vanished before another calander could be made and that's all there is to it.

    Frankly I'm kind of tired of all this. I talk to people all the time that actually believe in this. What are they doing with their last week? Sitting in class and studying for finals. Is that not enough to say they really don't believe the world is going to end?

    There are so many different theories as to what will happen it simply isn't believable anymore (not that I believed in it at all). It's fear-mongering at its best. Y2K didn't happen, 6/6/6 didn't happen and neither did this "rupture" that was meant to happen at least 4 times last year...

    Also, I'm pretty sure the Mayan's never said it will end, rather, it will change. There are so many different stories that I really don't see any truth in it at all.

      I'm sure that their calender ending had nothing to do with the decline and fall of their empire. Or maybe the person writing it got carpal tunnel.

      I second Counterfeit's post.

      This "end of the world" conspiracy is pointless, I mean 06/06/06 didn't happen, and neither did Y2K, so I know this won't happen either. The Mayans are celebrating the end of an era, not the end of all humanity, like what Razor Leaf said.

      Also, like what Yoshikkko said, this is all a silly joke.

      NASA has confirmed that on December 21st, in late afternoon, the sky will turn very dark, it is an interesting phenomenon called "night".

        That's what I think, too. If one thinks about it, the Mayans have died out before they could carve up a new calender, namely due to the Spanish Conquistadores back then. Though, I'm not certain if that's how the Mayans died off. If anyone knows for sure, please tell me.

          Gave me a quick giggle at how hilariously outrageous people are who truly without a doubt believe in this.

          Sigh... this whole talk of the world ending is just nonsense.
          I overheard people in my college talking about how they weren't going to study because apparently the world's going to end... have fun failing your exams!

            I honestly can't wait for Friday and Saturday to get over with cause then I won't have to hear this "end of the world" crap anymore and I can finally enjoy Christmas.

            Now while I don't expect the world to end, if it does I expect it to be some sort of zombie apocalypse.

            Now, on a serious note, on December 22 should Netflix label "2012" as a comedy?

            They should. I think I'd even consider watching it after the "event" happens and getting a big laugh out of it.

              Yes, they should. And in the future, when I have children, I'm going to show them the movie and be like "I survived that."

              My band director said that if the world ends on Friday, we're still holding our concert right through the apocalypse. Now that's dedication.

              I'm personally excited to see what will happen. The hype gets tiring to hear after a while, sure, but these sorts of stuff don't happen every so often. I don't believe the world will end; the Mayans themselves certainly didn't (they're actually supposed to celebrate, if they were still around, to usher the new b'ak'tun, instead of being blithering idiots). So seriously, get it together, people.

              To quote a certain pop song from 2010, "It ain't the end of the world."

              It's fun to have a pseudo-occasion like this in pop culture though, I mean try searching Tumblr for related stuff. You'll see "Dawn of The Second Day -48 Hours Remain-" posts, and if you're a Zelda fan (it's a Majora's Mask reference, specifically), then you might actually find it mildly entertaining.

                T minus 2 days!

                I saw a thing on the news the other day- this guy had a bunch of things packed into a bed and was getting ready to go to his bunker.

                  A friend of mine told me that he heard about a group planning to commit suicide on December 21, which is very saddening yet ridiculous if the world didn't end.

                    A better plan is to wait it out until there are actually any signs that the world will end for real before actually suiciding. But hey, if people like them are going to be this impulsive, then they will not be missed if it happens to be a hoax.

                      Sure I believe the world is going to end....just not on dec 21. i believe we will never actually guess the date it will just happen. this is just another one of those hoaxes to get everyone panicked. the mayans stopped the calender there because of some reason other then the end of the world.

                        Ways of Earth could be seeing its doom

                        Mother Nature - Earth would be soiling itself and on us with in this week. There hasn't been any tragic mother nature acts this week. Unless the ring of fire just suddenly explodes and monsters arise of the cracks, and forces us to send mountain size robots to fight them for us.

                        Solar flare from the Sun - Our Sun is waaay to young to murder us all.

                        Asteroids - Okay at least one or two astronomers would said something to the public that they found something hurdling towards us. unless some one is lying... dun dun dun.

                        Aliens - Same as the Asteroids. But Alien invasion would be second as a way to go out. It be awesome! Don't lie. It would.

                        Planet alignment - apparently it happened before, and nothing happens.

                        Earth rotation spins the opposite - Meh. Nothing would honestly happen.

                        Change of the poles - Though...We might get affected some how in the long run. ex Canada would be at the bottom of Earth and we would be getting the hot weather. And more floods after the snow melts. But wont happen.

                        The inside of Earth acts up - Okay, this could probably kill us. Our lands shift in some way or form due to unstable crust, entire continents slides, giant tsunamis form from the force, a lot of us would drown. Just imagine LA becoming the new north pole. But wont happen.

                        Zombie Apocalypse - I WOULD LOVE TO GO THOROUGH A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. I would be so ready for one. I'm pretty good with a bow and katana sword. So I'm good when it comes to defending myself. and the rules of a zombie outbreak. I would go out as a G!

                        Or Some power hungry idiot turns a key and presses the button, launching nukes. I'm looking at you North Korea. Or mad scientist creates a black hole on Earth.

                        But we do live in a world that anything could happen. So we just have to wait. But on the second thought. Australia, Asia would be going through disasters, hopefully they don't though.

                          Mother Nature - Earth would be soiling itself and on us with in this week. There hasn't been any tragic mother nature acts this week. Unless the ring of fire just suddenly explodes and monsters arise of the cracks, and forces us to send mountain size robots to fight them for us.

                          Solar flare from the Sun - Our Sun is waaay to young to murder us all.

                          Asteroids - Okay at least one or two astronomers would said something to the public that they found something hurdling towards us. unless some one is lying... dun dun dun.

                          Aliens - Same as the Asteroids. But Alien invasion would be second as a way to go out. It be awesome! Don't lie. It would.

                          Planet alignment - apparently it happened before, and nothing happens.

                          Earth rotation spins the opposite - Meh. Nothing would honestly happen.

                          Change of the poles - Though...We might get affected some how in the long run. ex Canada would be at the bottom of Earth and we would be getting the hot weather. And more floods after the snow melts. But wont happen.

                          The inside of Earth acts up - Okay, this could probably kill us. Our lands shift in some way or form due to unstable crust, lands slides, giant tsunamis form from the force, a lot of us would drown. Just imagine LA becoming the new north pole. But wont happen.

                          Zombie Apocalypse - I WOULD LOVE TO GO THOROUGH A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. I would be so ready for one. I'm pretty good with a bow and katana sword. So I'm good when it comes to defending myself. and the rules of a zombie outbreak. I would go out as a G!

                          Or Some power hungry idiot turns a key and presses the button, launching nukes. I'm looking at you North Korea. Or mad scientist creates a black hole on Earth.
                          In regards to asteroids and aliens, we would see them coming for a long time before that got here (just to cover this argument, why would aliens hide if they are going to destroy us? They don't need to surprise us), earth rotation and change of poles are gradual events, I don't want to say that zombie apocalypse is impossible, but civilization is too advanced for one to begin. Planetary alignment that has been talked allot isn't even a proper alignment... So yea, nothing happening with that.

                          But yea, I agree with this.

                          Don't worry guys, I think I've got this one covered.
                          Spoiler:


                          If not, at least we'll go out in style
                          Spoiler:



                          I don't really buy into it much, but it's fun to joke about. I'm more upset about the fact that USPS still hasn't delivered the package I ordered yet. I thought it was supposed to be "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." Apparently "apocalypse" isn't included in that.
