Is there Scientific Evidence and Proof that 2012 will Happen? Actually, there is.
Is there ANY Scientific Proof that 2012 is the End of the World?
Before we begin, celebrations are in order! The world did not cease to exit in 2012, as you are probably aware. The prevailing theory was that Earth's rotation would reverse, but this turned out to not be the case, as, again, we are still here.
Returning to the initial question at hand though, there was in fact some proof that something out of the ordinary will happen near the end of 2012. Scientists believe that a phenomenon will occur, one that happens every 25,800 years, in which the center of the Milky Way galaxy (which is a huge black hole), the earth, and the sun will be in direct alignment, causing the poles of the earth to shift about 45 degrees.
There is some substantial scientific proof that something will happen in 2012. Will it wipe out all of life? Not likely.
Scientists have noted that the positions of Jupiter and Saturn on December 21, 2012 is ideal for extreme solar activity. Answer for a frequently asked question: Why is the position of Saturn and Jupiter ideal for extreme solar activity? Well, it is because the angular momentum of large planets (Jupiter and Saturn are the two biggest in our solar system) effects solar activity. This is because the two planets have a pulling effect on the sun. Imagine that you are the sun and you are spinning with two buckets of water (one bucket is Saturn and the other Jupiter). If you keep your arms straight out and they are on exact opposite sides, then the tension on your arms (and body) is balanced. When this happens in real life, not much happens, solar flares and CMEs are low. However, if you move your arms out a bit, so that one planet is like 120 degrees from the other planet (trine aspect), than that puts a lot more tension on your body. When this happens, the sun will have more flares and CME's. The last solar cycle, number 23 was extremely violent. Experts predict that the next cycle will be even more violent (more than 50% more violent).
In an additional note, scientists that believe something huge won't happen in 2012, at least acknowledge that solar flares from the sun in 2012 may disable satellites and disrupt communication, transportation, power grids, the internet, and ATM machines. Also, violent weather disturbances, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions may increase.
