    -Many believe the world will end in 2012. I think this is ridiculous.


    -Here is my main reason for believing the world will not end in 2012 or any "predicted" year. There is no way to predict the end of the world when we don't know the beginning of the world. All we have are estimates. Do we have a year? Why would we have a end date if we don't have a beginning date?

    I totally agree with you. It was just like the huge Y2K bug scare. Can't predict things like that or the end of the world. It's just theories based on what? Things men have said?

    Ever since I was old enough to read newspapers, at the age of 8 or 9 (I had an advanced reading age) I have been reading about groups of people that believe the world will end on a certain date. All of varied theories.

    The last diary dates for about 11 devastating comets, 4 mysterious explosions, 2 diseases that will make us extinct, 1 rise of the devil and 1 flooding by god......well, I seem to have missed them all.

    I wrote a hub about 2012, as did the Bard of Ely.

    Personally, I'm not losing sleep over it. And if I'm wrong, then I'm as buggered as everyone else.

    Prophecising is a tricky business but at least it's lucrative smile

      1 thing I believe about prophecy. If everyone in the world wrote an individual idea of what they believe could happen in the future, theres a pretty good chance 1 would come true.

      On a more serious note, I did read about something that was supposed to happen long about 2012 and I thought, whoa. But it was so important that now I can't remember what the hell it was.

      I guess lots of things will happen in 2012.

    Very Pleased to live in NZ.. smile

    NZ is close to the edge of the earth.
    We get see a lot of things the rest of the world doesn't.

    Given the fear that some have that the end of the earth will be in 2012.... I think it's fair to tell everyone that a syndicate of kiwis are building a stadium near the edge... And are soon to be selling tickets for those who want to see the masses fall off the earth!!

    Come and join us...... lol

    marinealways24posted 9 years ago

    -Another thought on prophets. I find it funny how they leave so much open to "interpretation". There is a science to that.

    Hister? Can someone interpret this? lol

    The world didn't end when we went from BC to AD. There may be something about what the Mayan's knew, maybe it will be some kind of revelation in our way of thinking. Dec 21, 2012 will sure be an interesting day, if that date is correct.

    1. marinealways24 profile image60
      marinealways24posted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Maybe, Obama will get re-elected in 2012. Maybe the mayans did know something. It is the end!

      Surely the change from BC to AD simply relates to the birth of christ?

    After reading what Jiberish said, got thinking. Maybe it's not the LITERAL end of the world. Maybe it's something else...like I don't know the end od the way we think or do certain things.

    I think they have set the date of the birth of the universe something like 3.5 billion years ago. Can't remember for sure, but they do know when it all started now with the big bang, or at least the last big bang. Some believe there were previous big bangs as well as parallel universes. I am so confused! I may have to go hide in the ocean depths come Dec. 2012 LOL

    The world will end in the future, but not in 2012, although it will feel like it is ending. We do know the begining of the earth, and the end, but dont confuse the words "World" and "Earth" both have beginings and ends and the two are not at the same time.

    i agree with you COMPLETELY! No one has technology advaanced enough to predict the end of the world. Everyone talks about how many dooms day predictions have been right but so many more have been wrong! People say it's going to end because of global warming. The world has actually been in a cooling phase since 1998 Come on people get your facts straight!!!!
