Ja , I would be 23. 2012 is the year that marks the end of what we know to occur. Specifically 12/21/2012 , which is the winter solstice . Nobody knows if this is true , but the Mayan calendar ends on the exact day . Others, like Nostradamus also predicted the same day. There have been many predictions about the end of the world , and none of them have come true have. Personally , I am a believer , but I would not count on anything . I do not base my life around that day , because there would be no stopping what was going to happen anyway .
What I think could happen is that global warming could run rampant in that day . There are pools of methane contained in the oceans, which are being released slowly bubbling pools even as I write . Methane affect the ozone layer and global warming leads 10 times the carbon dioxide does. If the sea got warmer by a degree or two , could liberate the masses in massive amounts of methane , pushing our world into a huge ball of fire and death . This is just an idea though. No one really knows what will happen , but I think that ignoring global warming will have something to do with it .
He said that the Mayan calendar runs out of time in 2012 - but that's not true - it is the end of this time period - 2012 start their next period of time - the time that the latter , not sure - or if all last the same period of time .
There is truth to this story absolutely _not_ !
The world has been around for four million years . Is it reasonable to expect that will end in less than four years? And all because of a Mayan calendar ? Use some common sense , instead of being afraid .
The most interesting astronomical events in 2012 will be an annular eclipse of the Sun on May 20, 2012 , a total solar eclipse in 2012 November 13 , and a transit of the planet Venus across the face of the Sun on 2012 Jun 06. < Br >
Scientists do not expect anything unusual to happen in 2012 , or specifically on the date December 21 , except for the solstice , which happens every year.
None of the
I would be 22 as well, I'm not sure if it will actually happen. There are a lot of indicators of this event, but then again you never truly know. I believe in God, and if it happens I pray that he will have mercy on everyone who is truly a good person at heart even if they have done bad things in their lifetime. :) just enjoy your life and don't stress about it!

Jim R What about the alignment across the milkway?
there is stories going around that the sun and some planets will align in the center of the milkyway galaxy in 2012? is this true? could the mayans actually know this and how? were they better astronomers than todays? what EXACTLY is this alignment in the galaxy and what is the REAL story?
•4 hours ago
•- 4 days left to answer.
•I'm not going answer this question yet. I'm going to watch other people make fools out of themselves first.
NO ONE is claiming that all the planets will align OR that the solar system will be IN the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Anything AT the center of the Milky Way galaxy will go down the dimensional singularity black hole of 4.2 million (Science News) to 30 million (March, 2009 Astronomy magazine) solar masses.
I'll try to explain the alignment later in an Edit.
Edit: An alignment happens when you can draw a straight line through two or more points. I've been trying to find a web site that states the center of Milky Way Galaxy is at declination -28.4 degrees, but I have not been successful so far in finding the site I referred to over a week ago. On EACH WINTER SOLSTICE (in the the northern hemisphere) on December 21, the sun's declination is -23.5 degrees. 28.4 degrees minus 23.5 degrees equals 4.9 degrees, so the sun and the center of the Milky Way will be within 5 degrees of an alignment on December 21 of any year, including 2012. The person stating that this happens TWICE a year is wrong. On the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere, the sun on June 21 is at declination +23.5 degrees. There is a separation of the position of the sun and the position of the center of the Milky Way galaxy of 51.9 degrees on June 21 every year.
"...The Solar Declination angle is zero during an equinox, and 23.5° during a solstice. By convention, the angle is considered positive when the North Pole points toward the Sun, negative when the South Pole points toward the Sun. The Declination angle is 23.5° during the Northern Summer Solstice, and –23.5° during the Southern Summer Solstice. It is between –23.5° and 23.5° the rest of the year. ..."
Over one year, the motion of the Earth around the Sun causes the Sun's motion from west to east against the background stars. The line of this path is the ecliptic which is also the name given to the plane of the Earth's orbit around the Sun.
Diagram showing the weaving ecliptic line against the right ascension and declination grid of the sky, by Greg Smye-Rumbsy. A – March equinox (First point of Aires), B – June solstice, C – September equinox (First point of Libra), D – December solstice If the ecliptic is plotted on a star chart based on right ascension and declination it appears as a curved line. This is a consequence of the tilt of the Earth's axis with respect to the plane of its orbit around the Sun.
Four points define the seasons and positions of the Sun over the year.
Firstly, the Equinox on or around 21 March is when the Sun moves northwards across the celestial equator. At this time the Sun has a declination of 0° and a right ascension of 0h.
At the Solstice on or around 21 June the Sun is at its northernmost position in the sky at declination +23.5°, right ascension 6h.
3 months later at the September Equinox the Sun moves southwards across the celestial equator. It has a declination of 0° and a right ascension of 12h.
The Sun reaches its southernmost point at the December Solstice when it has a declination of -23.5° and a right ascension of 18h.
Finally the Sun returns to the March Equinox three months later, completing its motion over the year. This motion is a consequence of the orbit of the Earth. ..."
Someone claimed (in an e-mail) that I had said the sun is going to line up with galactic equator on December on December 21, 2012. I never made such a claim. The Milky Way Galaxy does have an equator. The plane of the ecliptic and the solar system is tilted at 62 or 63 degree angle to the equatorial plane of the Milky Way galaxy
Here's my standard reply to most 2012 questions (since someone with an ego problem has already given my answer a thumbs down, whoever that person is has already lost his/her vote):
No, the world really will NOT end in 2012.
The Mayan - Aztec sun-stone calendar is real. It does not end, because it is circular
The Aztecs conquered the Mayans and absorbed the Mayan culture. There are many people with Mayan ancestry alive today, so the Mayans have not died technically. The Catholic Church did its best to wipe out their culture, but some of it still remains today.
All that is going to happen on Dec. 21, 2012 is that the sun will align within 5 degrees of the center of Milky Way galaxy on the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere. The dying of plants, the dying of the year, and, in the Mayan long count calendar, the end of the 13th cycle of 13,000 year cycles has a lot of symbolism attached. The Mayan calendar does not end. All that will happen is that the fourth Mayan "world" will die and the fifth Mayan world will be born with the beginning of new cycle of cycles. The Greco-Roman civilization equivalent is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, which happened 41 years ago (??). 13,000 years from 2012, the sun will align with the center of the Milky Way galaxy on the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere, as long as the Earth's orbital parameters remain approximately the same. The only other thing that is predicted to happen in 2012/2013 is that solar activity for solar activity cycle 24 will be at a maximum.
The Mayan - Aztec sun-stone calendar is round. A round calendar cannot end.
Ok. I'll try to explain a little more. Remember, this is important because it happens at a WINTER SOLSTICE in the northern hemisphere. The Sun will align within 5 degrees of the center of the Milky Way Galaxy on a winter solstice as predicted by the Mayans. There is a radio source called Sagittarius A*, usually abbreviated Sgr A*. Sgr A* is not AT the center of the Milky Way galaxy. There is a 30 million solar mass black hole, a dimensional singularity, AT the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Anything else AT the center goes down the black hole, which is NOT made of the densest material known.
If you want to look toward the center of the Milky Way galaxy, go outside in mid August about half an hour after sunset. Look to the south. The constellation Sagittarius has a famous asterism known as "The Teapot". Wait until it is almost completely dark and you might be able to see the Milky Way running from Sagittarius through the Summer Triangle of the bright stars Altair in Aquila, Vega in Lyra, and Deneb in Cygnus. Cygnus is also known as the Northern Cross.
Winter solstice- December 21, 2012 - is just the revealing of the 'antichrist' or the 'man of perdition' at the mid-point of what Christians call the 7 year Tribulation (just subtract 1260 days to get the start and add 1260 days to get the end). Satanists and many pagan cultures from every corner of the world all throughout history have celebrated this like the Sumerians, Babylonians, Cherokee, Hopi, Chinese I-Ching (confirmed by Terence McKenna), Mayans (Pacal Votan; Chilam Balam of Tizimin, Mani, Chumayel; Jaguar Prophet), Egyptians, Celts, etc. This evil event is called "the abomination that causes desolation" that will be set up in the Jewish Temple's Holy of Holies when the antichrist is imbued with the spirit of satan himself. When will Jesus come? Only God Himself knows exactly, but very soon in "the twinkling of an eye" and like "a thief in the night". If you believe or not, that is up to you; either way it still comes.
Things to look for to PROVE it to yourself soon:
>Fall of America as an economic power and other ways. The buying up and consolidation of powerful banks and corporations by the government in a pretend "bail out" power grab to kill the U.S. dollar and bring in a one world currency.
Crash of other American banks and the nation's financial underpinning: Operation Sitting Duck
>The Big One: Revelation 18. America goes down on the list of fabled societies nobody believes in any more like Atlantis, Mu, Lemuria, Hyperborea, etc..
>Martial law. (Google some of Bush's executive orders concerning it- Nightmarish!)
>The fallen 'alien' agenda: Implementation of Project Bluebeam (be ready to hear more and more 'alien talk' &watch your local skies for the show!)
Just in time for 2012! After decades of conditioning, billions will fall for it. Will you?
(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)
WHY DID WE EVEN DIG THEM UP?
>Revelation 13:16-18 Trying to make people first accept the REAL ID card (to get you in the system) and then right after forcibly implanting people with these RFID microchips- the coming 'answer' to the world economic crisis:
>The start of the North American Union and true globalization..
>Push to attack Iran which will start WW3-the atomic war to end all wars. (If you think China, Russia, and the Muslim world would just sit back, you are a mistaken fool!). Escalation of the Georgian/Russian; Israeli/Palestinian; &Indian/Pakistani conflicts.
>Final push to one world government: The New World Order- The 4th Reich! (The brutal final empire foreseen by the prophet Daniel and John the Revelator)
>Rise of a miraculous and awe inspiring world leader later to turn world dictator.
>Push to one world religion where there are "many ways to God".
>Toleration of everything but Jews and Christians.
>Temporary and unheard of "peace in the middle east".
>More world wide food shortages and famines.
>More earth quakes. More fires. Strange and severe weather.
>Major spiritual awakenings.
>Rise of Islamic fanaticism.
>Rise in wickedness and corruption.
>Take a few minutes to listen to what this young child uncovered:
THEY ARE ALREADY PRACTICING <A MUST SEE!>
Christians look forward to this as it means they will soon join their Saviour &Redeemer in the Millennial Kingdom of the next Age and their Heavenly Father later as "Children of Light". If you try to equate 2012 with Y2K or some other date that cried wolf, then you will be making the worst mistake of your lifetime. Research all these things FOR YOURSELF!
That's just crap, why the hell do people always pick a year and say that the earth will end there. Maybe on 2050 the earth will end for humans, since we would have destroyed it by then, but the earth will not end just because of a year. I remember the same being said about year 2000, I was just 7 then.
I think that we should live our lives normally and not pay any attention to things like this. If, by chance, it is true, it won't do any good worrying about it before it happens, and you don't want to miss out on the next 3 years because you are worried about stuff like this. Do you remember when the year 2000 was about to hit? There will always be people out there with different ideas on when the world is gonna end.
Where did you find proof of any kind to support this? What research have you done? Or did you just accept what someone who didn't do any research either said somewhere without any evidence?
No, its not supposed to end or cleanse itself or shift its poles or align with the galactic centre or be hit by a comet or be crashed into by Planet X or have supervolcanoes explode or any of the other hogwash.
