As far as I am concerned, as long as I am not in Mexico on that date; I'm fine. It is only the MAYAN calendar that ends.

Why do you ask? The next day will be 12/22/2012, then 12/23/2012, and so on.

Haven't you noticed that the cultures that believed in that crap ARE ALL DEAD AND GONE! They created that calendar but couldn't survive themselves. So much for their innate ability to predict the future. They couldn't even predict their own.

Yeah, but there's a difference between predicting the future and being able to change it. I predict I'm going to die someday. Eventually, I'll be right. I mean, still dead and all, but right.

I'm with J.Smith, the Mayan civilization didn't even survive the end of the MWP, so what did they know about anything? At least the Aztecs could blame Cortes and smallpox for their demise! I'm surprised Al Gore and his chicken-little global warming bitches have not found something new to cry about. Thirty years ago their kind managed to shut down the nuclear power programs in the US worrying about proliferation. Those F-----s nightmare came to past anyway. Now they are crying about burning coal and oil. Well, DUH!!! The Gorites will lose most of their supporters if the planet warms up and the same group will die if the planet cools down. Starvation in the long run when mechanized agriculture in the US and Canada fails is a sure thing for billions around the globe.

The real end for us will come when the Federal Government runs out of spending money. The End of the Gov as we know it. Thats what? TEOGAWKI maybe?

I don't believe in prophesies.

Science "facts" (Of course NASA and many other agencies could be lying):

-At some point during 2012 a maximum solar activity period will take place. These periods occur regularly every 11 years. During these periods solar flares send thick streams of radiation toward our planet. All kind: Alpha, Beta, and Gamma (being the latest the worse). Our only protection is the Earth magnetic field, which deflect most of this radiation. Keep these in mind for later. You will see the relation in a while.

-Our magnetic field will disappear for some weeks during a process of magnetic polarity reversal. Scientist monitoring Earth magnetic field found that it is weakening. They did some extra research using ice cores and found that Earth magnetic field is always on the move. Slowly switching back and forward its polarity. Of course in order to switch its North to South it has to weaken gradually until it reaches zero and them starts getting stronger again, but with reverse polarity. This whole process repeats over and over again over thousands of years. They calculated at what point our magnetic field would reach zero using the change-in-time function that came out of our current measurements. The year? 2012. Of course, this will probably be the first time this swap happens at the same time the sun is having one of his moments. Very fucking convenient.

-Global warming. Well, we all know a lot about this issue, so I won’t bother to elaborate. It will cause sea levels to go up. It is also expected that it will cause enough desalinization in the Northern Atlantic that the Atlantic conveyor belt will grind to a halt, causing a micro ice age. I would love it. 10 years of snow and cold. Additionally, some researchers have found a new very interesting development in the huge Greenland glaciers. The unusual warm is causing these pools of melted water to drill a narrow tunnel all the way to the ground through the glacier body. They, then flow toward the ocean. A research is in progress right now with rubber ducks to determine among other things, how many of these melted tunnels lead to the ocean. I believe the glacier is anchored to the ground mostly by static friction. However, the scientists researching this found that this water is acting like lubrication between the glacier and the ground they sit on. If at some point the static friction holding the glacier in place give away and the dynamic friction takes over, I believe, the whole thing could just slide all the way into the ocean in a matter of hours? (Let’s hope I am very wrong). This could add 20 feet to our current sea level. South Florida would become the best diving spot in the world with a huge metropolis under water. hock.gif Maybe the Sun hyperactivity in 2012 plus the weakening or disappearing of the Earth mag field will allow more energy into our world causing a glacier meltdown this way???

-Galactic alignment. This also happens regularly every some thousands of years. The sun, the Earth and the galactic center (that’s is a fucking massive black hole) will align on the plane of the elliptic. Recently (around 2006), a geologist who was the head of the geology department in San Francisco found a very interesting relationship between the Moon orbit and earthquakes. He found that whenever the Moon is at its closest position in its orbit and over a sensitive tectonic plate junction, an earthquake will occur. It makes a lot of sense. Tectonic plates accumulate energy over years while grinding against each other. Then, at some point the static friction holding these 2 tectonic plates gives away, and an earthquake happens. If the Moon is capable of shifting massive amounts of ocean water to create the ties, it would make a lot of sense that it would also have a powerful influence on the tectonic plate’s equilibrium. That’s what this guy found and he was able to predict earthquakes very accurately. The s cience community is still validating his theory. The beef here is that if this happens because of the Moon, imaging what will happen when the gravitational pull of the Sun and our galactic center align on the same vector. Yep….it will probably trigger the monster that I will mention in the next point in this list.

-Yellow Stone Caldera Volcano. Scientist found that this cataclysmic volcano erupts approximately every 640,000 years. The funny thing is that the galactic alignment mentioned above occurs every 700,000 years according to scientists ….hum….aren’t those 2 time figures too close or what. Maybe….just maybe….The galactic alignment triggers this volcano every 640,000 – 700,000 years the same way that our Moon triggers our earthquakes whenever it gets close enough to a tectonic fault.

-Polar meltdown. This hasn’t been discussed by any scientist yet (At least to my knowledge), but I have a fairly good background in Mechanical Engineering and Physics and I just realized about the following. Usually, our North Pole stays mostly frozen all year around. Just last week scientist stated that for the first time in human history the North Pole could be ice free this summer. Now perform this experiment: Take 2 bottles of water. Empty half of the water in one of them. Then, try to spin each bottle throwing them in the air 180 degrees. You will find that if you apply the same force to each of them, the one that is full will easily spin the full 180 degrees while the one half full will only complete about an 80 degrees turn. Well I believe that we could establish an equivalence like this:
-Earth with frozen North Pole ~= Bottle completely full
-Earth with Melted North Pole ~= Bottle half full.
My point comes from the fact that as soon as the North Pole casket melts down that water won’t be locked in place in that position anymore. It will be able to flow around like the water in the half full bottle.
Now, the Earth doesn’t rotate on a perfectly aligned axel. It wobbles with its rotation axel 23 degrees inclined. I believe this meltdown can trigger a change in the rotation pattern as the melted water starts to freely circulate, opening the possibility to incredible climate variations. At some point Antarctica had a sub-tropical climate. The possibility for sudden rotation variation is not impossible any more.

Link Posted: 7/18/2008 11:52:11 AM EDT
those are all interesting facts, but ultimately (and I dont know where you stand) God is in control. I believe, and have for awhile now, that the end times are close. There is enough global unrest and people everywhere seeking a solution to the chaos that sooner or later, unity will be preached. Unity?? Why yes! By an Antichrist...who thinks that we all have to put our differences aside and band together to stop the war, the global economy issues, the oil crisis and resource wars....lets all just "share". A one world government would be the answer and since so many will be desperate, most will embrace it. The stage is being set right now...if you have ears to hear, you know what Im talking about. the things posted above might just be the final push our world needs to accept an antichrist as the answer.

You know what I did on January 1st, 2000? slept off a hangover. Woke up in my nice warm house thanks to the heater being on, and got out of bed and watched TV.

On 12/22/12, I'll wake up, and probably make some breakfast, and kick back and watch some TV. (It's a Saturday).

That's not to say that if something happens on 12/21/2012 I won't be prepared. But I'm not holding my breath for that specific day.

Alright, so I'm a little confused here. The Mayans had a big empire and all but they didn't have time zones or have much to say about the international date line. So, like, if Australia disappears first, should we panic then? Or is it some sort of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy thing and these gigantic aliens will show up worldwide with bulldozers at 12:01a Central American time saying, "What? We posted the demolition date for you ages ago and with a bunch of different groups! If you haven't found another place to live by now, there's not much we can do to help you. Freakin' squatters. Jeez...."

Good Lord willing I hope to be around at least another 50 years. That would get me to 89 years old. Who knows, if I'm lucky I might be able to make it another 60 with advances in medical care. Then again I might not make it through the end of the day. Only God knows.

Well it's 11:59 so I think I mad it through the day. Thank God for another great day.

I totally agree with you.....
With my luck, that probably is the END date.
All my planning/preps/retirement/401k/savings go to waste..... that sounds about right.

(I wasted my money on 8-tracks in the 70's & Betamax in the 80's & mini-discs in the 90's - why should today be any different?)
