No. It’s an ad for the movie "2012."

The world has existed for over four billion years. Is it reasonable to expect that it will come to an end in less than four years? And all because of a Mayan calendar? Use some common sense.

The most interesting astronomical events in 2012 will be an annular eclipse of the Sun on 2012 May 20, a total eclipse of the Sun on 2012 Nov 13, and a transit of the planet Venus across the face of the Sun on 2012 Jun 06.

Scientists don’t expect anything out of the ordinary to happen in the year 2012, or specifically on the date December 21, except for 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!

Stop being so egotistical! You are likely the only person that cares this much whether or not you die in 2012! If it’s true, then many more will suffer than you and I’m certain they wouldn’t give two craps about the guy that was asking about the end of the world on YahooAnswers 3 friggin’ years ago!! Grab a beer or a shot and go play some XBox.

Please don’t believe all of that stuff.

The IHC site is owned by the marketing department of Sony Pictures. It’s just a scam to get you to waste your money on that movie.

Don’t be confused or scared — and don’t believe all that crap.
The Mayan calendar indicated cycles of various lengths; we’re simply coming to the end of one of the long cycles. Then a new cycle begins, and the world will keep on keeping on.

I can see the reason for your alarm, because it does SEEM authentic.

But I can assure you that it is complete and utter bullshit. It is owned by Sony pictures, and is a viral marketing site for their latest film, 2012.

Please note that no real scientists – not a single one – subscribe to the 2102 apocalypse.

Because it looks so authentic and makes outrageous claims without any disclaimers, I thought in my naivety that it was in breach of false advertising. All I can say is that it would probably be in breach of advertising standards here in the UK, but the USA laws are more relaxed and so they can get away with these infuriating lies that discredits science.

The site is owned, operated, and maintained by Sony Pictures.

Here’s something a friend of mine said about this on a nother website, to a person who was frightened about the website:

Here’s the deal: The IHC is a marketing gimmick for Sony Pictures’ "2012" which is coming out in November.

"SPDE" is "Sony Pictures Digital Entertainment".

Now, bring up that website. After the flash loads, scroll down to the bottom of that page, and look over to the left… it says "(c) 2009 Sony Pictures". Over just to the right of center it says "Explore the 2012 movie experience"

On the page is a message about the "election" from "Soren Ulfert". If you click on the ‘Election’ tab you are taken to a page where they say that the "winner" will not only receive the <strong>honorary title of "Leader of the Post-2012 World" but also a trip to Cancun!

At the top of the "Election" page it mentions a few names, like "waitress like Cynthia of Miami, Florida; a farmer like Bill of Warren County, Illinois; or a fledgling novelist like Jackson Curtis of Los Angeles, California."

"Jackson Curtis" is the lead character of the 2012 movie, played by John Cusack.

Back on the main page, one of the "press releases" mentions "Adrian Helmsley" being named a science advisor. "Adrian Helmsley" is also a character from the movie.
