I just wrote a hub about the end of the world in 2012. However, what I did not put into the hub, was the number of times the end of the world was predicted.
Googled it, and the most number of times was 242. That is a pretty big number.
The actual end of the world will occur on Jan 5, 2078....
the day after I pay off my mortgage
I have been reading quite a bit about the so-called Mayan prophecy concerning the end of the world and apparently there is no such thing. The Mayans did not predict the end of the world on 21st December 2012. In has actually been a modern invention, which has been great for the sale of several books on the subject.
I guess some people made a lot of money
I think it's just that the Mayan calendar ends on Dec. 21st, 2012. That was translated into the end of days somehow. It is considered to be the end of an era by the Mayans, not quite the doomsday prediction that it has been called.
As an excellent way to keep paranoia running rampant, along with instilling fear.
No YOU didn't. But that's exactly what it IS used for.
But I wrote a hub about it, which does say that people cannot tell with any accuracy when the world will end.
Of course they cannot......there are simply too many variables to consider.
That is very true. I need to learn how to make more then just two faces
Hey Michele, you should be able to learn to make more than two faces. Click on "formatting" when you reply to a post. It should show you many different faces to make.
Not working for me. The word "formatting" just changes from black to blue.
That is all that happens.
no way! I was wondering how everyone did that!
It isn't even that the Mayan calendar ends on this date. It is simply a date of transition, for the Mayans...
Only 242 times, huh? They must not be counting all the people out on street corners! I used to walk a downtown area while waiting for buses when I was between vehicles and I cannot tell you how many times I walked past people who said the end of the world was going to be "tomorrow" or "next week". Of course, that was over 7 years ago now......LOL!

If the prediction that 2012 is the end of our world is true, what will you do in the remain time. For most of us, we do the similar thing every day, and we never consider that is a waste of time. However, if the rest of your time is very few, and you know it. And you are very healthy to do what you...

The world is supposed to end on Dec. 21, 2012. Am I still going to have to pay my bills?

I've hit 100 for the second time during my tenure on Hubpages. How many times have you reached 100?

Shall we expet the end of the world at 2012?
