Is it really true the world will end in the year 2012?

Is it a rumor or are there actually facts that tell us the world will really come to an end in the year 2012? More info and facts would be appreciated. Thanks.

All you really need to do is take a look at some of the people promoting the doomsday 2012 nonsense. If that doesn’t convince you it’s all baloney, nothing will. We have:

José Argüelles who believes himself to be a reincarnated Mayan priest and tells us that "time is faster than light", whatever that may mean.
Zechariah Sitchin who invented planet Nibiru as an object populated by a race who genetically engineered humans as slave creatures to mine gold.
Nancy Lieder who believes she’s is in telepathic communication with aliens from a planet orbiting the star Zeta Reticuli who have warned her about the approach of Planet X in 2012.
Terence McKenna who, whilst on drugs, devised "novelty theory" which shows that "novelty" reaches a zero point in November 2012. When he heard about the Mayan Long Count calendar cycle rollover on 21st December 2012, he fiddled his result to match the date.
"Doctor" Jaysen Rand who tells us he was abducted by extraterrestrials from the planet Epsilon and warned of the impending arrival of Planet X.

Saying that there will be no doomsday in 2012 are (among many others):
Dr. Ed Krupp, Director of Griffith Observatory and specialist in Archaeoastronomy.
Dr. David Morrison, Senior Scientist at the NASA Astrobiology Institute.
Professor Mark Van Stone, PhD in Latin American Studies, Southwestern College, California.
Professor Mark Morris, Professor of Astronomy & Physics, UCLA.
Dr. Ian O’Neill, Solar Physicist.

So who do you want to believe? Experienced scientists with many years of study in their respective fields or a ragbag collection of oddballs and lunatics.
Difficult choice, isn’t it?

No, don’t be silly.

The people that came up with that crack-pipe delusion are all druggies and loonies.

It is being spread by moronic Youtube videos and by booksellers and Hollywood, just trying to milk it for a buck.

Scientists have been working it out for years. They do a number of calculations involving how far away the sun is, the amount of toxic gases, and the distance we are from the moon,.

Their is no saying whether it is right or wrong
We’ll just have to wait and see.

The world will not end. The thng that might happen are a few solar flares.

This idea is based on the Mayan calendar, which ‘ends’ in 2012. The theory says that the ancients knew that we wouldn’t need to represent any years later than this date, so designed the system to run out of digits at that point. In reality, they simply would have looped around if they were still alive. This is basically the same as all the conspiracy theories that said the world would end in the year 2000 because we ran out of numbers, except with a different type of calendar.

I certainly hope it does… How could you doubt a rumor that has been going around FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS NOW and it’s based on the MAYAN CALENDAR ending on 21 December 2012… There have been at LEAST 2 TV SPECIALS on this and there is a MOVIE COMING OUT… don’t you know ANY of this?

No facts; just junk science from people with tin foil hats!

2012 is a complete 100% junk science internet hoax; usually believed by people who did poorly in their science classes!

The planets NEVER ACTUALLY ALIGN. Their orbits prevent an actual straight line alignment.

Planet X does not exist anywhere in the sky. No where on the internet can you find the sky coordinates for this fake planet. It is not hiding behind the sun (we orbit the sun ), it is NOT visible from the Southern Hemisphere. We can see in every direction with our telescopes.

No near Earth objects are headed our way for a catastrophic impact in 2012.

The Earth and sun "line-up" on the center of the galaxy every year on December 21st! We are actually 6 degrees away from the center MOVING AWAY!

The whole thing is a complete hoax. Watch the famous astronomer Neil Tyson make fun of the 2012 hoax.

and READ what NASA’s scientists think about this 2012 nonsense:
http://astrobiology.nasa.gov/ask-an-astr…

As for the Mayans; they believed that the Earth was flat and had 4 corners. They also believed that the sky was held up by 5 large trees each one a different color, and believed the Earth rested on the back of a giant crocodile! They worshiped the SUN god!

Are any of these other Mayan beliefs actually TRUE? The Mayans did NOT understand modern Astronomy.

Good GRIEF!

No, people need to calm down about "2012". It is only a movie and they’re making books for money to scare people. You can’t predict when the world will end. It’s god’s decision to decide when it will end, but our planet has to end one day, might end tomorrow, or next day or when we’re 852 years old, no body knows. Trust me dont be scared…im not..
I read the bible all the time.

This is long, but there’s a lot of info:

"First of all, the Mayans don’t have a calender they have calendars which often interlocked. The calender that has given rise to the myth of the end of the world is the Mayan long count calendar. According to Mayan Mythology, we are living in the fourth world or “creation” so to speak. The last creation ended on 12.19.19.17.19 of the long count calendar. That sequence will occur again on December 20, 2012. According to the Mayans this is a time of great celebration for having reached the end of a creation cycle. It does not mean the end of the world but the beginning of a new “age”. Does the world end every December 31st? No – we go on to a new year. This is the same as the Mayan creation periods. In fact, the Mayans make many references to dates that fall beyond 2012. The idea of 2012 being the end of the world was actually first suggested by New Age religionist José Argüelles in his 1987 book The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology."

Then again,

"The Mayan Long Count, however, was invented, or so scholars believe, on August 11, 3114 BC, in Gregorian terms. It is based on the movement of the earth and sun, relative to the Milky Way galaxy. Thus it is extremely accurate. A very impressive feat, too. But according to it, we are currently living in the fourth age. And the numbers of the Long Count calendar are about to reset. They will do so on December 21, 2012, the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.

The previous age ended on a long count of 12.19.19.17.19. Another 12.19.19.17.19 will occur on December 20, 2012, followed by the start of the fourteenth b’ak’tun, 13.0.0.0.0, on December 21, 2012. Conspiracy theorists are burning up the Internet claiming that this means the world will end. Their proof lies in the “Popol Vuh,” a Mayan book which compiles creation accounts known to the K’iche’ Maya people, and which states that this fourth age is the gods’ first successful attempt to create humans, after 3 failed attempts. Thus, the world as the Mayans viewed it, and as we live in it, is perfect, and there need not be a fifth age.

Given that they based their calendar on geometry involving the sun and the Milky Way, they must have seen some catastrophic end coming for Earth. This means an asteroid or meteor or comet, which is destined to strike Earth and wipe everything out on December 21, 2012. This is no immature claim. NASA is grossly outmatched by the night sky. All the foreign bodies floating around out there that have been sighted have been confirmed as no threat. But NASA calculates this is as a percentage so small, compared to the rest which we don’t know about, that the percentage is practically meaningless. It is 10 to an extremely negative exponent. There are many potential Earth impactors out there that no one has seen or knows about. Any one of them could have our name on it.

Or what about a massive solar flare? NASA expects a solar maximum from 2010 to 2012, a time during which the sun’s activity will be very busy. Flares are absolutely impossible to anticipate. They are bursts of light and heat, and thus cannot be seen before they arrive, because they travel at the speed of light. We will have no warning until we are walking outside and the sky explodes into brilliant light. And then Earth and everything on it and in it will be incinerated. Gamma radiation will penetrate to a mile in the crust and irradiate anything trying to hide.

There is also a theory amongst fundamentalist Christians which combines the Mayan Long Count with the “rapture”. According to the rapture theory (invented in the 1700s by protestant fundamentalist Cotton Matther who started the Salem witch trial hysteria), Christians are spared the Tribulation. But the Tribulation will last for 7 years, after half of which the Antichrist will rise to absolute power, and 3.5 years later, Jesus will return with all the dead who died in him, and the battle of Armageddon begins.

This means that if the Mayan Long Count is correct, then December 21, 2012 marks the beginning of the first or second half of the Tribulation. If it is the first, then anyone who believes he or she will be raptured up to heaven has a little more than 3 years left to pack a suitcase. If, however, December 21, 2012 marks the beginning of the second half of the Tribulation, when God wreaks all the really terrible stuff upon the earth, then those, who believe they will be raptured, will be raptured less than three months from the time this is posted."
