For the last time , no.
First, yes, it is the last year that the Mayan calendar serves. If the Mayan civilization still existed today, would have invented a larger unit of measurement of time ( as they had probably before when this happened ) . 2012 simply have been the beginning of a new period .
Assuming the start end end dates were intended to refer to the start and end of the world : The start date of the Mayan calendar is on 11 August 3111 BC. The truth is that the world is much more than that . So if the timing was wrong about the start date , why would it be correct at the end ? What is easier to analyze the past or predict the future ? I personally would not trust someone who is wrong in the past known to predict the unknown future .
Finally , the Maya were a great people . But there is no reason that we should celebrate their mystical powers in such high esteem . They could not predict the Spanish invasion .
Let me tell you one thing that is 100 % secure, however. Death , for many people , will come long before 2012. For many will come in the short term , much shorter than the three years to 2012 . Those who die in traffic accidents only receive a fraction of a second ad , some even less. It is a good idea
Even if it were the end of the world , the government never tell us that there is so much we'll never know unless you have some kind of leak that would probably be considered as rumors and what not . But not always live our life to the fullest you only get one chance to get it . and no , you should not worry about it because you're never sure
Of course not. The 2012 rumors are based on misinterpretations of the Mayan calendar, conspiracy theories and pseudo-scientific strange paranoia caused by a lack of understanding of astronomy.
The Mayan calendar: The current cycle Mayan calendar ends in December 2012. A series of foil high tensile nuts seem to think that this indicates that the world will end on this date, and erroneously believe that such an event calendar predicts. In fact, this final passage in incomplete and seems to refer to a rise, rather than destruction. Although he was predicting Armageddon, however, that does not mean anything - The Maya had no psychic abilities, just superstition. They were incredibly advanced in the fields of astronomy, mathematics of his day time, and were able to accurately predict celestial events that occurred over a thousand years later, but did so through scientific means, more than any supernatural abilities. Without belittling their achievements - I am amazed at how much they did with so little - that they knew nothing of what we know today ... they are so able to predict these events themselves, and are, in fact more accurate in our predictions of what they were, and have a better understanding of the cosmos. In any case, if they were psychic, why not predict their eventual slaughter and destruction at the hands of the Spanish over a millennium ago? You would think that include an important event in their calendars.
Planet X / Nemesis: Some of these nuts they think it may be a very large planet whose orbit extends in the outer solar system at aphelion (furthest orbit of a planet sunbathing), but comes in close enough to alter the orbit of the Earth at perihelion (its closest point to when the sun in its orbit), or that the sun has a companion star (not uncommon in other star systems) currently is too far away to observe . This planet is referred to as "Planet X" or "Nibiru", and said it is sometimes called Star 'Nemesis' (cute, huh?). In either case, we would probably already be aware of such objects on the basis of discrepancies in the orbits of the planet and its effects on the sun and the center of gravity of the solar system. If one of them was close enough to be destined to come in 2012, we definitely knew we were here - the effects of gravity, not to mention the radiation would be reading in the
You have to be saved before he died anyway. You must be living life to the fullest no matter too . (legally )
I think it very well may happen . A lot of speculation , but we'll see . Always be prepared .
haha well i did see a bumper sticker that said palin 2012!
but in all seriousness there is a slight chance that it may well be
there is an asteroid 35 miles long called toutatis that will be approching the earth around december 12 2012. luckily the likely hood of this object actually hitting earth is very low. for it to actually hit earth it would have to pass thru a key hole that is about a mile wide. and science has come a very long way with un manned space travel. there is a way were if we sent a probe to hover next to the asteroid we could change its trajectory enough to miss this keyhole.
just remember to live a good life but not a life dedicated to just enjoying yourself and you will be fine in either occasion.
No. There is no such thing as "Doomsday." This whole thing is a hoax designed t sell books and TV shows.
Scientists don't expect anything out of the ordinary to happen in the year 2012, or specifically on the date December 21, other than the solstice, which happens every year.
None of the "predicted" happenings for 2012 hold up under close scrutiny. "Planet X" and "Nibiru" simply don't exist. The Mayan calendar ends a cycle, but there were no predictions of the end of the world. The Sun doesn't line up with the galactic centre; it's 6 degrees off. No asteroids or comets are actually predicted to hit Earth.
All of this stuff was put together by crackpots in order to promote their books and TV shows, and shamelessly promoted by the History Channel. Don't take any of it seriously!
No. 2012, is NOT the year the worlds going to end. It's just a time the mayan calender ended. .. So? You know? Doesn't prove or mean anything. Everyone is recycling more, and trying to save the earth so why would it just end on a specific day? It's nothing to worry about. Just a stupid myth. So don't worry!
This thing of 2012, Doomsday, the Mayans and their calendar, etc, it has all become so extremely popular and well known, that I'm certain, no, I'm convinced, that nothing of the sort will happen in 2012/
And, by your words of "repenting and get saved" I infer you're a believer, Christian perhaps?
If that's the case, your Bible says “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night”
If the end shall come, no one will know neither the hour nor the day (and certainly not the year).
And of that I'm sure, not because of the Bible but because that's always been the way of death, nobody ever knows exactly when his time is up, it just gets you one way or the other, as a big surprise.
