Before you say anything about 2012 being total bullshiz, read this article. Can anyone of you guys provide links to something on these natural disasters.

I already know about the bee one, and that's cause for concern. Anyone else?

EDIT: I'm kind of worried about that Pole Shift thing

2010 is a hoax. We're actually still in the 80's.

no actually the mayans just got bored making their calendar and said "**** it, we're stopping at this random day (december 12, 2012)."

the poles have shifted plenty of times already, we never know it though, and it doesn't cause anything to change. the thought that 2012 is the end of the world is retarded as well as anyone who believes it...

secondly, the prediction of demeber 21st (or whatever date it is, i forget exactly) 2012 is based on the mayan calendar which doesn't say the world will end, it simple stops at that date.

because they finally realized what a waste of time it was to make a calendar for a time when they would be a couple thousand years dead.

all calenders end... That's why you gotta go get a new one.

Another thing to consider when trying to decide if the world will end in 2012 is the Chinese Book of Change, commonly called the I Ching. Considered to be the oldest book in the world, the I Ching images are associated with numbers. You know how it goes, mathematics are the universal language. Well, some mathematical geniuses have claimed to have “cracked the code” in the book. They claim the book accurately predicts virtually every catastrophe that has ever taken place. Since the book’s early days, it has been believed that it is capable of predicting the future. Will the world end in 2012? There are plenty of other things to consider.

So? It never says this book predicts the end of the world, it just says it exists. How is that relevant to anything?

"There's this book that's predicted every catastrophe ever, therefore the world will end in 2012."

...

I think if any of this had any real merit, you'd have heard about it from a source a bit more reliable than some badly written blog I've never heard of.

The 13th long count calender stops then.

There's still the 14th (ending March 24th 2407) through to the 20th (ending October 13th 4772) to go.
Despite the publicity generated by the 2012 date, Susan Milbrath, curator of Latin American Art and Archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History, stated that "We [the archaeological community] have no record or knowledge that [the Maya] would think the world would come to an end" in 2012. "For the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to make it to the end of a whole cycle," says Sandra Noble, executive director of the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies in Crystal River, Florida. To render December 21, 2012, as a doomsday event or moment of cosmic shifting, she says, is "a complete fabrication and a chance for a lot of people to cash in." "There will be another cycle," says E. Wyllys Andrews V, director of the Tulane University Middle American Research Institute (MARI). "We know the Maya thought there was one before this, and that implies they were comfortable with the idea of another one after this."

Mayan calendar actually does say that it will end, sort of. It says that it will be reborn, back to square one, replaced with a new one.

Now, the date of December 21st, 2012 is when the sun, earth, and center of the galaxy are all in alignment with eachother. Also, I believe there is a solar eclipse somewhere on that day (not to sure about that one)

How did the mayans know of the center of the galaxy? They didn't. If you look at the milky way from earth, it looks like this

If you look, it looks like three bands, two white and a black one in the middle. As it turns out, in the center of the black one in the middle is the center of the galaxy. On december 21st, the sun will rise straight through the middle of the middle band. That only happens once in whatever amount of years (can't remember, but its a long time). So the mayans perceived this was significant because it doesn't happen often, and they calculated that it would happen on December 21st, 2012, which it does.

Will the world end in 2012? Before you decide, here are some things to consider.

Before you decide if the world will end in 2012, think about the Mayans. They were smart. Will the world end in 2012?

Here's something else to consider before you decide if the world will end in 2012. We're running out of bees. Is the doomsday prophecy true? Will the world end in 2012?

When you try to decide if the world will end in 2012, you should know that there are earthquakes at Yellowstone National Park. Will the world really end in 2012?

South and North make a swap. Many smart folk, including Einstein years ago say it is actually going to happen. Could this account for the climate changes going on? Many scientists state it’s inevitable. In fact, it’s been said that it’s thousands of years overdue. Basically, the earth stops spinning, and changes the direction of it’s rotation.




That's not what the south-north swap means! It means the magnetic poles of the earth change their alignment, not that the fucking planet stops fucking spinning!!!

I would just like to point out that if anyone does decide to believe that the Mayans predicted the end of the world in 2012 they should also consider this amazing fact:

The Mayans were terrible at predictions, they failed to predict the end of their civilisation, now how can you trust a dead civilisation who didn't even see it coming?

Odds are, people are gonna start getting really worried when december 2012 comes around, and society will pretty much collapse.

Bam. End of the world.

On a related note, i swear were getting early signs of it. Today, we had both a fire alarm (real thing, not a drill) and a 4.2 magnitude earthquake within an hour of each other.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomagnetic_reversal

There's a Wiki, because I don't have access to ATHENS since I left uni, but it's pretty basic science. A change in the earth's rotation has never been put forward as a legitimate theory for geomagnetic reversal. I don't think a change in the earth's rotation has ever been put forward as a legitimate theory at all.

Basically, this article is suggesting that the entire planet could stop spinning and spontaneously start up again. I'd love to see a source that proves that to be possible.

I'll bet $50 000 that the world WILL end in 2012. When it does end, I'll give you all 2013 to give me the money.

If it doesn't end though, I'll remove my bet.
