    What do you think of 2012?

    I think that nothing happens in 2012.

    I did a whole Hub on this subject! For me it's all a load of hype aimed at making a lot of people very rich - (hopefully my Hub will make me rich too!).

    A lot of 2012 is down to interpretation. Most people assume that when the Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012 it signifies the end of the world, however others interpret this as the End of an Era or Age, which is a totally different thing.

    Most religions point to a major change or an End of Days, but none of them specify a date.

    There's too much disinformation relating to the whole 2012 prophecies and interestingly enough Nasa has a dedicated website debunking the whole thing!

    At the end of the day, if the world ends on December 21, 2012, then there's not a whole lot we can do about it - if it doesn't then ooppps there's a lot of egg on a lot of people's faces.

    This 2012 thing is just another mega-hype like the Y2K thing. The Mayans do not buy into this and have never said the world will come to an end. On the contrary, they say that it is just the end of one era and the beginning of another, which in their culture is a very positive and happy time. Most of the other stuff conveniently dragged into this scenario, such as the alignment of planets, simply does not coincide with this date and is just bunk. People can be lead to believe almost anything they are told sometimes just because they want to and other times because they are too lazy to seek the real truth.

    What do I think of 2012 - It's an upcoming year, a number that looks nice. Nothing more!

    The Maya Civilization was incredible with their predictions and calendars. Difference with their calendar and ours; 1/10th of a second. It was divided in cycles, and,this one ends in 2012. They predicted the coming of the Spaniards and a new religion based on fear. Now, for 2012; the writings say that the  'God that can fly' will visit again, the same God that taught them about Astronomy, Math and Maize: "end of the cycle of fear and a new and better beginning," others, are trying to promote the idea of an Armageddon which means mountain of sorrows, which is a great business and, it is a way to CONTROL people through FEAR. My students were asking me about them that is why I made this blog: http://hubpages.com/hub/2012-Maya-Calendar
