Is the world really going to end?

The End of the World as we know it?

If you haven’t heard that the world is going to end soon, then it’s going to be a huge shock to you when it does! With major blockbusting movies out, numerous documentaries and a dozen or so prophecies all pointing to Armageddon it’s inevitable that many people will be very scared. Many companies will jump on this fear and make millions selling products linked to the pending doom.

So what is it all about? How did it start and why are so many people (the media included) jumping on the bandwagon? Is it just another ‘year 2000’ scare, or are they actually right?

This hub will explore some of the prophecies and rumors and try and debunk them where possible; I will not draw any conclusions, but hopefully can present the information in a balanced way and allow you to make your own conclusion!

I note that the world obviously didn't end on December 21, 2012 which is one of the major 'prophecies' however many are now pointing to the new Pope being the last Pope (according to ancient prophecy) and that December 21, 2012 was simply the beginning of the end!

End of Days

The 'End of Days' is a common theme among many of today's modern religions. The apocalyptic end of the world is often foreshadowed by devastating events.

Christianity foretells:

  • Earthquakes
  • Natural disasters
  • Civil Problems
  • Wars

Many Christians point to the recent disasters all around the world, the growing civil problems in many major countries and the increase in potential for war all being portents to pending doom.

Islam foretells:

  • The coming of the anti-christ followed by the prophet Jesus
  • Ths Sun will begin to die
  • The Earth will be devastated by a major Earthquake.

Islam foretells of Armageddon - a final judgement of mankind.

Buddhism teaches that Buddha's teaching would slowly disappear over time, and generally follow a concept of a cycle of creation and destruction.

All other religions have a similar prophecy or cycle, and the underlying factor is always some kind of apocalyptic ending - none state when this will happen, and what will follow - at least not explicitly - most are enigmatic and open to interpretation.

For a more detailed discussion, click the link below:

"After a great misery for
mankind, an ever greater approaches
The great cycle of the centuries
renewed, it will rain blood, milk,
famine, war disease
In the sky will be seen a great fire
dragging a trail of sparks." Nostradamus C2 Q 46


Nostradamus is probably the most famous and most quoted prophet of modern times. In his lifetime he completed 942 quatrains (a 4 lined poem) mostly written in French. Each quatrain is intentionally obscure using metaphor and symbolism rather than plain 'French'.

Over the years, many scholars have studied these Quatrains and interpreted them in various ways, linking them to many past events.

For me, it's easy to link a quatrain to a past event, but it becomes shaky when you try and link it to a future event. In one famous quatrain, many interpreted the end of the world to be in July 1999. The latest interpretation now points to some time in the vague future where a mysterious planet called Niburu (which is comet like) will crash into the Earth and devastate it.

The thing about prophecies is that they are not clear - I'm quite sure I could write a prophecy and some time in the next 10,000 years someone would link my prophecy to a past event.

Mostly then, I discount Nostradamus.

Mayan Calendar

The Mayans, despite being at times a violent race, were brilliant astronomers and mathematicians. Their design of a calendar (the long count calendar) is truly incredible (please see Wikipedia link below for more details) and also is at the center of a huge debate.

Through their techniques they were able to track planets and moons, and the accuracy they had adds a lot of credence to the ‘supposed’ predictions of their long-count calendar.

Their calendar has a period of 5126 years, and depending on which interpretation, once the calendar reaches the final day, the world would undergo great change.

There is no evidence that they actually meant that the world would end; some suggest that the date represents a turning point for humanity, a day where we become enlightened. Others suggest that the calendar simply resets.

However, the most talked about belief is that the end of the calendar represents the end of the world – the date this all happens? December 21, 2012.

Of course, December 21, 2012 came and went with a whimper - some say that this date simply signified a start to an upheaval in the world - some say it's simply a bunch of bologna.

Other Predictions

Galactic alignment

One of the latest theories relating to ‘doomsday’ is the Galactic alignment. Some link this to the Mayan Calendar, which has been said to predict this alignment on December 21, 2012. Yet again those who believe in the alignment say that December 21, 2012 was simply the start of the alignment which could take 20 years or more to complete!

Basically, the Galactic alignment is where the December solstice sun aligns with the Galactic equator. It occurs once every 26,000 or so and when linked to the Mayan calendar points to 2012. However, it should be noted that the alignment is cause by a precession of the equinoxes that are due to the wobbling of the Earth on it’s axis – thus the position of the equinoxes and solstices shift over time. Now, as the sun itself is a ½ degree wide, it will take 36 years for the December sun to precess through the equator – therefore to simply say this occurs in 2012 is incorrect – the actual period started in 1998 and continues for 36 years.

Timewave zero and the I Ching

Terence McKenna, while using certain drugs to ‘open his mind’ conceived of a formula that calculates the flow of ‘novelty’ – which show the increase in the universe’s interconnectedness. This formula predicts that this will increase and culminate in a point in time when everything that can happen will happen – this time? 2012.

McKenna created a program that produces a waveform called the Timewave. Interestingly, when first calculating the end of times, he came up with a date of November 2012, but after discovering the Mayan calendar, adjusted the date so that the two matched. Obviously when the December 21, 2012 passed, the believers stated that Timewave zero never actually predicts a date so it could still happen.... some time!

Geomagnetic reversal

One theory that I have encountered recently and is based on sound science, albeit with tenuous links, is the idea of Geomagnetic reversal. Usually triggered by a massive solar flare (NOOAA predicted that 2012 would be the height of the current solar activity which cycles over time – however they changed this recently to 2013), and linked to a weakening of the magnetic field (which some scientists believe), the end result is the reversal of the North and South poles.

Scientists agree that this happens every 780,000 years or so, and that we are overdue a change – however most scientists point to this process taking about 5000 years, not one day!

The consequences of such a change are really unknown, but most scientists believe it would simply disrupt world wide communications, satellites, cell phones etc. While this may be the end of the world for some, it certainly isn’t the cataclysm that some expect.

Planet Nibiru

This has been linked to some of Nostradamus’s quatrains, but also originates in some New Age circles from the 90s. Apparently some aliens have been channeling information that an comet-planet will collide with the Earth – these aliens initially said the event would happen in 2003, but obviously they hadn’t synchronized their calendars as they now say 2012.

Need I say more?

Web Bot project

The internet is a powerful tool, and according to Goerge Ure, whose Web Bot project scours the internet for ‘chat’ looking for patterns in the keywords used, predicts that the world will end on December 21, 2012. Apparently this program predicted the September 11 attacks and can predict disasters due to a ‘collective knowledge’.

Now as there are literally millions of websites dedicated to December 21, 2012 then I’m not surprised a computer bot would pick up on this, are you? And of course December 21 came and went - so the bots were a little wrong!

Nasa's Response

Nasa are getting several hundred emails a day relating to the 'myth' of End of Days - finally they decided to respond officially by creating their own 2012 site. The site attempts to dispel the majority of the myths and rumors that are going around the web.

You decide whether they answer your doubts....and of course they were 100% correct - the world didn't end!


Personally I feel the whole December 21, 2012 was used as an excuse to help make some people a lot of money. With a blockbusting movie, hundreds of documentaries, thousands of books and millions of websites, there’s no doubt there is a captive audience, all willing to spend time thinking about the ‘end of days’, so it’s easy to sell to these people.

I think the whole thing is just another hoax, whether it is a sinister plot by the government to control the population, or just simply a bunch of internet geeks doesn’t matter. Even if it wasn’t a hoax, then there was not a lot I coulddo about it so I’m chose to live my life as normal and just hoped I lived to see December 22, 2012 - which of course I did!

Now, to help me build my space ship that will help me get away from this planet before the next Armageddon, please buy the t-shirt (on the right).

I agree, they are using 2012 to get more money!!! And no I believe the world is not going to end 2012. In the Bible, the Antichrist will sign a peace treaty, and from that day there will only be 7 years until the Earth will end. But from what I have read from the Revalations, many of the prophecies are coming true like we are pretty close, but not 2012!

Lots of people make lots of money, everyday, on things made up, events foretold, things from the past, fairy-tales, and all sorts of other crazy nonsense.

There are LOTS of theories about the winter solstice in 2012, which are primarily speculation (wrapped in jargon, surrounded by pseudoscience mainly), about this date foretold, and while it is certainly possible that no one has got it right, I have a gut feeling that it will amount to something.

What? I truly do not know ...

But using the fact that people are capitalizing on the now wide-spread interest, to make money, as a sidelong way of discrediting the possibility or efficacy of such an event seems a little 'off' to me. But I like your style Simey.

@topshelf - huh?

Uhm, Let me know when your 'Anti-Christ' signs that peace treaty, and I'll, uh, set my egg-timer 'er something ... lol.

I really do believe that 2012 will be a year of enlightenment rather than destruction--on rebirth rather than an end to civilization. However, in any instance, we all should stay focused and do things in a positive manner, rather than expecting the worst. It seems that every so often, someone comes up with another prediction that predicates on such a theory. Worrying will get us nowhere! Thanks, Simey C.

I do not want to be the one to say that I agree that something devastating is about to take place. But this I do know it will not be the end of the world, because GOD promise that the days will not cease. Genesis chpt. 8 verse 22. What they are looking at is a power transformation that will take place and it will bring life ending tragedies for some not all.

The only thing We as GOD fearing people can do are to make sure that our lives are right with the LORD and hope that when the calamities come that we will be able to praise HIM anyway.

I will like to show everyone this concerning Nostradamus before you make any unwise decisions about what is to take place, it will be my next Hub!

I love your article. It is very informative, but what if they are right. Where does that leave us?

They Bible said that these days will come. What if they are very close? Let us observe to be wise and not brush things aside as if it is all a hoax.

The world certainly does not appear to be getting any better and our leaders do not have the answers to solve current problems. The governments and scientists are all looking for a way to escape all this pending doom by exploring other worlds in space to which they can escape to. They want to leave us behind.

So what insurance do we have to secure our existence? The Bible has some answers, I believe you should check it out before it is too late. Start at John 3:16, then Acts 2:38, and John 4:2-3. Here is how to know Jesus as your Lord and savior

It may or may not be an end to the world as we know it. Why worry? If it is the end, we won't be able to do anything about it. Follow your beliefs and hope that what you chose to follow comforts you. In my belief system the righteous will be preserved, the land masses will move together and everything that happened on that 2012 movie is possible.

Why worry about it though? If you are prepared do not fear. There is safety in Zion according to the scriptures, so go to Jerusalem. Or in my faith, go to Missouri.

I was curious so stopped by your hub. Do not be asleep the time is getting near. The date could be, if you are right with Jesus you will not be here because his church will be lifted out of here before the tribulation.We wont be here for the fire and brimstone. You will live for another 6000 years. The body dies but your spirit goes one of two places. Heaven or Hell for eternity. The enemy rules the fallen world.

Christs is going to return, it is getting near. His prophecies are coming to pass. The word of God is the only true living text that has prophesied what is going on today. Read revelation. If you do not have a relationship with Christ read Romans 10:9-10 or John:3:16. Look around do you think things are getting better? Children of God will never be orphaned nor forsaken.We anticipate the day of the Lord Jesus return.

I know where I am going. I have no doubt.

Blessings to you. Throw rocks if you want, the truth can bite. I write this because I serve Christ. He wants no one to perish into hell forever. Deny Jesus and he will deny you before God the father. I pray for the lost. I once was but I was found. My life is amazing because of the promises of our creator. It is nothing I do, you snd I are sinners. Good deeds do not take us to heaven. Christ is the only way. He died so you and I could get there.We are free to choose life with him or life without him. You must be interested to write this hub.

Your choice get your free ticket to heaven you have nothing to loose.

In Love.

I was crious so stopped by your hub. JThe ones that believe Jesus dioed on the cross for us. Do not be asleep the time is getting near. The date could be, if you are right with Jesus you will not be here because his church will be lifted out of here before teh tribulation. Read you Bible, revelation. The devil reigns this earth so greed will prevail in the hands of many about the movie. We live in a fallen world. Look around. Is is going to get better? The children of God are excited because we know where we go. I hope and pray you are one of them as well. No pain, tears, greed, lies, deciept or devil. He is DOOMED he knows it.

I know where I am going when I pass on. You see believers do not die we pass on immediatley to be with the Lord Jesus. The world is full of Godlessness and my prayer is if you are wearing Blinders read John3:16 or Romans 10:9-10.

The only truth is the word of God. Much has come to pass over 2000. Sorry but if you lived another 1000 years you could not have predicted the living workd of God. Read up on it. You have nothing to loose, everything to gain.

gospel. If you live a thousand years that would mean eternity for you. If you do not die.

No harm intended. In the name of 'Jesus' With Love

Will the world end in 2012? My thought is NO it will not. The world will end when man kind reaches a point that all available resources needed to sustain life are depleated. off course history seems to show that man can create any number of reasons to go to war. However, in the final analysis, I think it will be man kind that distroys the world and not anything beyond those limits. Apparently, God seems to be content to allow it to continue.

2012 is the next major solar flare likely event, which had started a few years back; tree-ring evidence indicated drought period on earth within the cycles.

As a result of combination of the Earth axial tilt and sunspot cycle as well as solar flares been the interval of climate change during the Holocene periods.

But we have opt for a fossil fuel era of Anthropocene climate, an interesting combination mixes this time.

Earth system science believes that human interference to planet Earth carbon cycle on land and at sea affects the ocean circulation, the stratosphere and its ozone layer, and the ice of the cryosphere. The Earth’s functioning system is now close to breakdown.

If hydroxyl decides to take a break now, our Planet Earth’s metabolism will cease to function without her ephemeral chemical. The concentration of hydroxyl in the atmosphere is merely one part per trillion. Our trusted janitor might resign anytime.

My view is similar to the religious views that we cannot, at this point, put a date to the end of the world. The only way we can know the exact date is if we can track large objects in space heading straight for earth.

Of course, earth will be destroyed one day, but that could be BILLIONS OF YEARS away. As for humanity, we could last for another few million years yet if we're very lucky. My gut feeling is that some catastrophe or other will wipe out the human race within the next few hundred thousand years or so.

I'm super confident that most of us will still be around come 22nd December, 2012

As I understand it as a Christian no man knows the day or hour,although some say we can know the year, and maybe so, but according to the bible this world will never end, although it may get torn up pretty bad and a lot of blood shed. The Jew has the earthly promise so there will always be an earth, Christians have a heavenly promise, and we will be taken away in a twinkling of an eye, therefore revealing the anti-christ to the Jew. There has always been a shedding of blood for sin, the lamb in the old testement, then Jesus shed his blood for the Christian(ones who accept him and follow his teachings), so once He has gathered up the Church in the rapture, and you are not in that group you will either take the mark of the beast to save your physical life or killed refusing the mark(shed your own blood) if you want eternal life spiritually.

If you don't believe in the Bible, your in trouble already.

The Bible says in two places the earth WILL NOT BE DESTROYED, EVER.

Ecclesiastes 1:4 A generation is going, and a generation is coming, but the earth is standing even to time indefinite.

Psalm 104:5 He has founed the earth upon its established places. It will not be made to totter to time indefinite or forever.

Yes Revelation mentions a new world but its a re-established earth to the orginal state God intended it to be before man ruined everything. God (Jehovah) gave adam and Eve the instructions to populate the earth and even at the time of Noah and the great flood he has never and never will destroy the Earth or all it's people. There is so much hope and excitement in this re-established world to enjoy, it is a definite promise of a wonderful future all but the wicked have to look forward to. God with his son Jesus made this earth to last forever to time indefinite.

But don't you wonder about after the 1000 year reign? What then? I know satan will have to tempt the last living for all fairness in choosing between good and evil so he will be loosed a little season, but I always wonder what then?

END OF THE WORLD ! Who knows? It is started from a speculation from ancient text that no one can prove the 100 percent accuracy, not even 100 percent comprehend the CONCRETE TRUE MEANING of those ancient text. Speculations that became a news, news that turn to worldwide mental debate, that finally became movies as a form of entertainment. A great source of business and money.

End of the world might be real, as so many ancient text implies including the Bible.

How about giving "END of the World" a different term, Like DESTRUCTION of the HUMAN SOUL and JUDGMENT DAY for the SPIRITS. Consider that Angels were not envy of creation of the Earth, they envied about the creation of Man.

APOCALYPSE maybe a war between creations, Not God against creations. God will walk again on earth not for the Apocalypse. He will come back for the "chosen". And let those who are not to enjoy their own "free will". And that "free will" is the energy that God's creations are using for the so called " APOCALYPSE".

Then this world will have a new make over as God the Father brings the Heavenly Jerusalem to the earth, Revelation 21:1-27. itwill be a world without end.

SimeyC! Thanks for this hub. When all is said and not done, we are programmed to go about our business, get somewhat agitated, and remain content (as long as we have convenient access to essentials, especially food and water) allowing "the movers and shakers" on our spaceship Earth to pilot us into brave new worlds. If we're agitated enough, the discontent demonstrate and strike for minute adjustments, while humanity moves another step toward compromising quality of life. The indigenous peoples are among the endangered species, and their lifestyle and habitats are the most compromised - our human canaries. My question is: Will we continue like sheep, or will we awake and take up the yoke voluntarily? Among the many international grassroots movements working to awake, educate, and mobilize participants into a possible new age, Rain Forest Nations are collaborating with us northern hemisphere sleepwalkers thru Pachamama.

In the nineteenth century, a religious nut by the name of William Miller predicted that the world would end on March 21, 1843. Obviously, he was wrong. He then predicted that the end was nigh and that Jesus would return on Oct. 22, 1844 (around lunch time, I believe); unfortunately, a lot of gullible idiots believed him and sold all of their belongings (probably to associates of Miller).

Why people insist on insisting that this beautiful world must end on a specific date is both amusing and pathetic. It's always either a scam or some sort of group death wish. However, if anyone wants to give me their money and precious metals prior to ascending to heaven to meet Jesus on Dec. 21, 2012 at 12:07 PM EST, please feel free to contact me re banking arrangements.

There are more people than most would imagine that believe that the Church that the Roman Empire built over 200 years after John wrote the book of Revelation is the beast described in chapter 13. I have discovered a reference in the book of Daniel that defines the comparison of prophetic timeline to earthly timeline as One week = approx 9.13 of our years. The forty two months that this beast was given ends around 2012. I discovered this long before I had heard any of the other predictions.

I do not know that the world will end but I do believe that at the very least, religion is about to make a drastic change around that time.

The truth is that 2012 is not the end but a new beginning. The problem is that no one seems to know what that means exactly.

I think in the meantime we need to stop worrying about what will or might happen and determine what will happen. As far as I know, we still have "free will," we can determine our futures.

adauphin 7 years ago from fort Lauderdale, florida, USA

As a Bible student, i know life on earth has just celebrated her 6,0000th birthday some 9 years ago.So I don't worry about those renewing of the earth cycles. The countdown towars the end of this world is found in the book of Revelation and there is no year frame associated with the end of time that even Jesus does not know about. Jesus told to watch for signs in heavens and in society that mark the beginning of the end. No comets or asteroids or any such things will ever collide with earth to destroy mankind.

A new Jerusalem descending from heavens and a new earth and a new heaven are predicted but not for 2012. This will take place after the 3td coming of Jesus. But first,when all the numbers of the Gentiles are completed and the Jewish people is grafted back and the plagues start pouring on earth as a punishment for unbeliefs. Jesus will appear a secon time to resurrect the dead in Him and take them to heavens for a 1,000 years. After the 1,000 it will be the final judgement day for satan and its agents and the new Jerusalem city:

Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

Nostradamus, the mayans which practiced human sacrifice..Hmm

Its sad when people quote those who are being used by demonic forces for deception.The Bible says there will be a rapture and then a 7 year kingdom ruled by the antichrist.If the world was going to end in 2012 then that would mean that millions of people should have vanished off the planet back in 2005...This idea of the end of the world in 2012 is meant to deceive people just as all of Satans teaching coming from Hollywood.Where is Hollywood located,in Los Angels.The word Los Angeles means "The Angeles".Demons are Angels that have fallen from heaven and are now on the earth deceiving the people.If you are wise you should see that as soon as Hollywood or the Angels *demons that control that city broadcast a message its automatically not going to be true.

John 8, 44

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom ( or small ant )shall see it*And whosover does evil equal to the weight of an atom ( or small ant ) shall see it >

The day itself remains unknown to any body except our Lord Allah.

okay.. hmmm I wonder if you realize, that there are.. I think a hundred and some odd prophecies from the oracle at Delphi to the maya ranging from three thousand years ago to just a few hundred ago. all centering around that time.

Now me personally I don't believe anything is going to happen. but in Fairness to research, you cant lump the 2012 disaster idea into the same dust bin as Religious death cult prophecies of the Western world.

in addition.. the Maya did have a prophecie about their demise. as part of their calendar there was a frame of time, that was to herald unrest, and disaster. strangely they dissappeared during that time frame. Hmmmm. self fulfilling maybe.

anyway, History is full of odditys like that. which is one of the reasons I love history. a race appears from nowhere, impacts history then vanishes almost as fast.

or a race is found that was highly advance four thousand years ago, and yet no one knew about it till ruins were stumbled on a few years back..

Lost temples in India reportedly a myth only to find a few thanks to the Tsunami. etc... okay sorry.. Ill cut off the catalog here. except to say what ever happens, we are witnessing history on a daily basis.

To answer the question,. . . . NO it will not. Some in religious circles have asked this question it seems since time began and the answer is still the same. . .NO! The truth be known there are always signs and events in history that lead individuals to think God's return is close. That may be so, but in the final analysis, it really does not matter. If you as an individual are waiting until the signs give you clues of God's retune, so you can clean your life up, then I suspect it's already to late for you. Frankly, I hope the majority of the world is left behind to experience the wrath of God. . . .they deserve it.

Stephen Stephens 7 years ago

Of course the world will eventually come to an end. The Universe is way too ancient and immensly huge for one little planet to remain static. Civilizations and societies have ended many times in the past. There have been fresh water clam shells found in the Sahara Desert, as well as the fossil remains of a whale. Stone structures under the ocean that we have no idea who made them. Those are civilizations certainly ended. I'm sure some time in the future North America will be under water. It's amusing to think that humans, in their arrogance, think that our existance on this little planet is significant. I'm sure rats think they should have free rule over the Earth, and humans are an evil bane. Depends on ones point of view.

As for the reference to "God", I have a few questions for Christians: FIrst of all, why does all this death and suffering have to happen? Why would an infinitely intelligent creator make a world where everything has to die for everything else to live? People eat animals, animals eat people, people eat plants, plants eat rotten people and animals.

I asked a religious person once about a storm that killed a bunch of kids at a Boy Scout camp. She said that God had a good reason in his "Plan" for that to happen. There is absoutely NO justifiable reason for kids to die screaming. Christianity is mans whistling in the dark to cover his fear of death. And to make money.

And I'm not hiding my identity brhind some cutesy screen name.

Okay, I'll shed some light on this topic.

The Future and past does not exist in the purest form. We only experience the NOW. Time itself is an illusion, a trick passed off to control and enslave mankind.

The Gregorian calendar and the mechanical clock was introduced by Pope Gregory the eighth upon indigenous peoples and both physical time and the calendar are not in line with both the body (microcosm) and Universe (macrocosm)clock.

The Gregorian Calendar was altered from ancient calendar and the days are all messed up and not in line with the Mayan or ancient Egyptian calendar anyway. We are actually living past 2012 now and beyond if we stayed on track with the Mayan calendar LOL!!!! AND we are still here people :-)

Look up Pope Gregory the eighth and the Gregorian calender and mechanical clock. This will put your minds at rest.

The whole 2012 thing is a scam to frighten people. This whole world is driven by fear in one way or form to keep people down and controlled.....

All terrorism and crime is caused by mankind. People can pray to god for help but why is it he never helps? Ever thought about that? Why is it that the FEW can control the MANY?

This all world has been controlled and manipulated by the polarity of darkness for thousands of years SimeyC.

It is not that EVIL is multiplying and taking over the world that is the problem, the problem is that GOOD people do nothing and just sit back and let it carry on.

Now my concern is not just the mainstream population who have been indoctrinated and succumb to their game and way of life. Mainstream people are not educated to think too much. Those who think too much end up on the scrapheap to rot in life.

Those who play the system and pass all the tests that has been filtered down through the system go on to be the decision makers for the system in future generations.

My concern is how egotists and people with little regard for human life and Love can take over the reigns of power. How can the few control the many?

Reality is only perceived through one source and that source is INFORMATION. Whatever the brain receives as information it processes and sends out signals in relation to the information it receives. The brain is a computer system for a physical expression of reality although there is more to life than many could imagine. They only know the physical expression of the information that they have received.

There is a lot going on, more than meets the physical senses.

Fear is the tool used to manipulate and control people's brains. The secret is to Love and not let fear take over your life. The real POWER is LOVE and LOVE is the dominant force within the universe, But in this realm FEAR is the dominate force.

Are we living in hell?

Don't be fooled by modern religion and your governments. The system has been designed to keep the power in power and the rich, rich!!!

We are living in a world of illusions and falsehoods. Man is driven crazy here, but my question is this. Who drives man crazy? Is it his own thoughts or thoughts of another? This is WHY it is utterly important to LOVE and only LOVE...

Even actual Mayans have stated their Calendar doesn't have anything to do with the end of the world or end of the age. Their calendar was their way of measuring time & cycles.

In the Pyramid system of the world of man is how the few rule over the many. There is a pyramid on the back of the dollar bill that many prophetic researchers attribute to being an Occult or Satanic Symbol. This isn't anything different than Babylon, the Pharaoh's of Egypt, Rome, or any other Nation/State of government of man's worldly forms of government that are represented as Beast Kingdoms past & present in the Book of Revelation.

A prophecy of Islam is the Signs Dajal or the One Eye. The One Eye of Darkness. Their prophecy states that Jesus will throw a spear into the One Eye to discredit the One Eye before he returns to overthrow the worldly system of the One Eye. So whether the Pyramid on the back of the dollar bill with the One Eye above the Pyramid is the symbol of the One Eye is unknown, but it is a possibility that is the symbol of the One Eye that Jesus throws a symbolic spear into to discredit?

Whether there is a literal One Eye who is also termed the man of sin that comes are one & the same is unknown. What is known that according to prophecy things could get really ugly upon this planet as time proceeds & far more uglier than things are now all over the place.

Since man left simple Tribal living for the Nation/State those at the top of the Pyramid of Nation/States merely learned all the manipulations to number & herd people. Herd them like moo cows. Like rats through maze. Or life in the Rat Race

The Mayans coined the phrase 'New Age' or 'Golden Age' which doesn't sound like the end of the world to me. The Mayans believed that on this date they will evolve and meet their gods through a gateway or portal.

It is also the beginning of the cycle of Aquarius as we are currently ending the cycle of Pisces which happens every 2500 something years.

However, the calendar can also refer to 'end of time' which is what all this fuss is all about.

End of time has already happened to the Mayan calender when we take the Gregorian calender and mechanical clock into consideration. So in theory, the end of the world didn't happen, just like the millennium bug didn't happen in 2000.

There is a pattern forming here.

What will be the next date after 2012 of the Gregorian calender to throw fear upon uneducated peoples?

I'll make one up here and now.

Archaeologists discover an Atlantean calendar buried within an underworld complex in Scotland. The press big up the find telling the public that this calender is accurate to every detail of all cosmic cycles and then the media through the Internet spreads fear mongering that this ancient calendar ends in the year 2025.

History seems to repeat itself and the next generation will also fall victim to fear induced propaganda.

Great hub. Astronomical events aside, we humans are more than capable of self-destruction be it by chemical, biological, nuclear or kinetic means. Our planet will survive us and quite happily self-correct, we just aren't that important in the grand scheme of things. In a way I think our transient insignificance is far more frightening to us frail but arrogant humans. We may well architect our own extinction but the timing of the culminating events will be completely unpredictable. You gotta love non-linear dynamics.

to all of you brothers,and sisters,.......

Only God The Father Knows!

Matthew 24:42 "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.

So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Therefore you too must always be ready, for the Son of Man will come when you are not expecting him.

i ope it doesn't end ive just had a little boy not much of a life for him if it does i worry all the time wether its going to happen i don't think it will tho

I really hope it doesn't end, i had a child 9 1/2 months ago and when the world is supposedly supposed to end he will almost be 2.. not that great of a life only living to be almost 2. IDK though in my personal opinion i don't think the world is going to end. I feel like maybe the north and sounth poles might switch, that seems a little more resonable then the earth being wiped out! I live in arizona, and hopefully if the noth/south poles decide to switch it will be colder here. haha. its jan and still 80 outside! Well god bless to all of you, i hope you live your life to the fullest with your families and just enjoy your time and stop worrying about all this rubbish! (:

Well, there is a strong possibility that the world may end in March 2012. The feast of Purim will be in the month of March 2012. There is a lot of interesting information (in particular) in the book of Esther in the Bible (KJV).

There are some nice and interesting ongoing study series (in particular) on the book of Esther which can be found in which outline many truths in the Bible related to the end times.

Please check (the eBible Fellowship website) also.

The world will end in about five billion years after the fusion of all the hydrogen to helium and then the helium into carbon atvwhichbtimebthe sun will begin to expand and eventually will consume the earth. Frankly I don't give us that long. With all the politicians suffering from cranial rectal inversion I figure they will take care of the issue long before physics does.

I am intrigued by the whole end of days topics. However, this may help yourself and all the followers of Christ.

"Beware the son of perdition is at hand" WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS. this is a time where many will have dreams and visions. There shall be many women and men prophesy and Yes many shall be false. God is the greatest scientist of all! Why is it hard to believe our scientific measures would not help us understand the possibilities of the means to an end.

Here this day that the while we have entertained ourselves with many false alarms regarding the end we have lead others in error! For I tell you the truth many will predict a day that the world will end and many will believe it will be that day until they until it does not occur and then become complacent and say to themselves. It didn't happen then, that person is crazy, that group was wrong those days many will stop believing it will come upon us at all. Now I say to you the son does not know the hour! Beware of the thoughts you entertain, be soberminded knowing that it is written the sun will turn black and the moon shall be black and that it is written also that the dart will be destroyed with fire and a new heaven and a new dart will be. That Yes the world bottomed out and that the bible is not in cronicalized order but if you will seek Ye first the kingdom of heaven all things will be applied "secrets" from heaven are yours for the taking and the spirit will pour out on and into you. My children do not be deceived what is written will be done and is already done. Stop looking for an hour and a day for it is not good to desire more than the master and this is not something he has been given until that great day. If you die tonight that will be your revelation tomorrow and so forth. Does it matter that you knew the hour or the day for nothing you can do will get you into heaven and no mountain can fall on you to hide you from the it there will be no place to run or hide. Just praise he who has the power to deliver you from a second death and praise he who has given to you the web!

The world will truly not end . . . when we are here. But it will end in probably a billion years. No planets ever going to hit earth, or cross into the sun. It is just a way to earn money.

Do people really believe in this nonsense, The Mayans didn't know anything about space and it was their own calendar and they predicted it, it doesn't mean companies have to make pointless things up for sale for the end of the world which wouldn't happen in December 21st 2012 as the end of the world is set at 5 billion years later when the sun eventually turns into a red giant and swallows the earth (this is a theory) So really I'm out.

The world ending in 2012? Thats just silly. All of you out there: dont't worry about a thing. Even if the world was going to end in 2012, which I would estimate it logically has a one-in-a-million chance to, all of us Catholics, God, his son, and all of his angels would be right there to greet us with open arms. We would have painless endings, and JOYFUL new beginnings!

God Bless all of you, and have great lives beyond 2012, when nothing but a winter solstice occurs!

thank you all for the comments I've been freaking out lately about all of this I am a Christian and I believe Jesus will protect all of his children please anyone who does not believe in god just give the bible a try don't question the lord for this is the devil please everyone read the bible and no one will know when the world will end so 2012 is a way to get money and one last time please read the bible ask for forgiveness from the lord and remember hell is the worst place anyone could ever go don't wish it on anyone thank you for reading

Unfortunately, those using the Mayan calendar as their "basis" for The End of the World As We Know it, have committed a faux pas. As far as the Mayan calendar, a bit of info. The Mayans did not use leap year days on their calendars. That was added to OUR calendars some time ago, meaning that our year is a smidge longer than the Mayan year- meaning their calendar was faster.

Meaning the Mayan calendar actually ran out last Feb. Of course, no one mentions that. No drama.

I'd say there's either nothing or everything to worry about... Just think about it... there've been SOOO many propheties about the end of the world and did it happen? -No...

That's what i mean about it... the fear of it - in this case - is ridiculous

- there's always the chance of doomsday. Besides: The chance for you to die because of an apocalypse is billions of times lesser than going for a walk.


If an object (such as an asteroid) would approach Earth the chance of it to crush into the planet is minimal... like 1 in a million... because the gravity of Earth just would make it orbit as a sattelite...

As fact... you should rather be 10 times more afraid to have an oven in

your house than doomsday... Anyway there's no doubt the world is gonna end...

But who knows? Maybe humanity will survive... in the future, maybe we'll manage to settle on an EXO-planet (Earth-like planet) and start over again...

it is written in the bible that no 1 knows the end of the world... and "scriptureonfire" is right for giving the verse which is written like this;

"But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone". (Mark 13:32 & Matthew 24:36)

but surely, it is nearly coming 'coz we are on the 7th day (2000 and thereafter or up to 2999) in the bible which is the rest day... so, who knows that 12-21-2012 is the day, but i doubt it.. 'coz when i watched the movie 2012... it gave me the idea that maybe 2112 and not 2012... i said MAYBE, why?.. 'coz the date written like this; 12-21-12... so, when it read at 1st glimpse/glance... it looked like; 12-2112.. is there a sense?.. none, i think... that's only my imagination and interpretation when i watched the movie and there's no proof for this... so, don't take it seriously..

and agreed with "ladyonthemirror" for her saying; "do your best everyday, love your family, faith with your religion, if it happens let's face together, no way out, right".. 'coz we really don't know when it gonna happen..
