I agree that the world will not end in 2012. I have asked this question to people in my neighborhood and they all bring up the deal that happened in the year 2000, but this was just about computers being able to roll over the year which was just a money gimmick for people to, in a panic, run out and buy upgrades or other kind of software to advert the problem that was never really there.
However the 2012 proclamation doe's have a good history following it with all the predicted incidents that has already came true listed in the Mayan calender. But the discrepancy fall before the philosophers, and the science communities who can not make up their mind on how it will come to pass.
Will it be the end of man kind? NO! because the bible assures us that it can not be by stating that no man will know the time nor the hour that the end time will come.
Will it kill off allot of people? Who knows, but it could very well kill a quarter to at least half the population on earth depending on what it is that comes our way. but I won't worry about it because if it is something that big and the fact we still don't know how it is to come about therefor we will not have the time to prepare for it.
In any case there is a chance that this will be just a bunch of hype, in hopes people will go for broke and spend there life savings to save their lives on something that never comes to pass.
welp gotta go and may the force be with you.
I only have love for my fellow hubbers.
