The subject came up during a conversation last evening. Should we plan a grand family Christmas and be together the week of Christmas. If the World does end, we will be together and if it doesn't end...we will be together.
Anyone else thought about planning a family and friend vacation for the Holidays of 2012?
my husband is actually talking about 2012 right now coincidence??
I think it's interesting how many people have decided to interpret the Mayan calendar as somehow being the end of the world. The Mayans certainly didn't... their calendar is cyclical, meanings that a cycle ends and a new one starts.
It's only people who support eschatological beliefs that have put this perspective onto the situation, as their religions are the ones with the concepts of "end times."
Relache is absolutely right. The scare of the year 2000 did not happen, so a new scare is going on.
Different countries and cultures have different calendars and 2112 only refers to our calendar (like the Mayans really had us in mind while neglecting 2/3 of the world?)
Let’s better live everyday like it will be the last. Love, Tolerance, Hope and Joy is better than fear and Apocalyptic thoughts
We can not control when the world will end, we need to live for the future with the idea that there will be one rather than live in the fear of what might or might not be.
K...Stimp's gonna be serious here for one moment. I believe instead of looking at when the world will end, I am going to look at each person in my life and go "how many Christmas' do we have left together...10? 20? ONE?" I find, for myself, that thinking in those terms allows me to appreciate and enjoy my family and friends now and not wait several more years. As my parents age, this becomes more and more important to me. Just a different way to look at it.
AND as a reminder....all hell was supposed to break loose on 01/01/00. I am a programmer, I was there to witness the mayhem
I beg to differ. According to the movie, very few of us will survive. I'm savin' my money to buy a seat on the ark.
I did a hub on this very subject! A few comments:
1) I'm not buying Christmas Presents until December 22,2012.
2) If you beleive that the world will end, then please send me all your money on December 21, 2012.
3) Do you notice how many people are making money out of the whole 2012 thing? A movie, hundreds of documentaries, people writing web sites (*grin*), I hear Al Gore will do a documentary linking Global Warming to it!
4) Like most I believe nothing will happen - if it does, ah well I was wrong and I'm dead!
I agree with Relache. But hey, if it does end, won't it be cool to be able to see it?
I do not like to think of the world ending, I choose not to, so many things left to do, I don't even have kids yet. But I would say you should be with your loved ones on the holidays regardless the year, month, or date.
How could the end predicted when we don't know the beginning?

A lot of people fear 2012 as being the end of the world. I think 2012 is going to play a signficant role in the rest of everyone of our lives. I think a lot of people will die but do not feel it will be the end. We as...

Many people seem to have some sort of faith in this? The Mayan calender many believe predicts the end of the world. (others believe they just stopped counting). I would be interested in knowing what your beliefs are,...

Is it the end? Just another day? There will be some interesting things happening in 2012. 3 eclipse, galactic allignment, a large comet coming toward Earth? What do you think?
