Its more like 2012 is the end of a 26000 year cycle of the zodiac, and earth will be aligned with the center of the milky way.. I dont believe its the end of anything. We are currently in the piecian age, and this will end 21-12-2012, then we enter the aquarian age.
The mayan calender was read wrong or something like that.
It's 2112 not 2012.
And what if the Maya's said that, the world didn't explode at Y2K.
Only thing that happened was that the MSX console thing thought it was 1900 instead of 2000...
Yea, i agree with some previous comments. Its just that the calendar ends, not the world. But its worth to mention that scientists (from russia or some) announced that there may be a collision between earth and some stuff from the universe at some 2030year+. Not sure about it, heard from news that scientists all over the world will come up together somewhere to have a secret meeting and to figure out what to do.
Just looked it up. The 2030 prediction is a collision between Earth and an asteroid. That was an old article that was written 10 years ago. They mentioned shortly after that they used a new model to calculate its path, which reduces the probability of a collision. Anyway, lets face it. We will eventually get hit by something out there. Proof: Look at those craters on the moon - and some on the Earth. Someday an object will miss the moon and hit us. Its got to happen.
How close do we need to get to feel any significant force from this particular black hole we're going to come "very close" to? You seem to be some kind of astronomer or physicist, so please tell us idiots who find it difficult to comprehend some concepts.
The most catastrophic things that will happen on 21/12/2012:
Thousands of people will die worldwide from lack of food, lack of water and preventable diseases.
Thousands of people will be killed or seriously injured in disputes with friends, family, neighbours, burglars, car-jackers etc.
Hundreds of thousands or millions of soldiers will go to sleep fearing for their lives because they are committed to wars that their countries wish they hadn't got into or there are no real reasons for.
