    Do you think the Maya so called doomsday prediction on 21 Dec 2012 is true? .

    If so where is the big party going to be on the 20th?

    Well many people still believe it will happen. But I believe that it will not happen, because its a slim to none chance. No one would want to die in a disaster.

    I figure since most of the bad things on my credit report come off in 2013 it must be true.

    No, I don't! It's just one more doomsday scenario cooked up by the mayan equivalent of fundamentalists. Still, just in case, I'll be  partying on the 20th like there is no tomorrow. Where? I'll find somewhere between now an then.

    Nope. Partly because I already have my own religious leanings, and partly because I've investigated this for a hub I recently published. The Mayan's believed that the world has been created and destroyed three times at the end of the 13th B'ak'tan, but that it was only after a fourth world had been created that they found it worthy to place man upon. As I understand, the ancient Mayan's would have seen the existence of man as evidence that the world would not be destroyed.

    However, it would still be a cause for celebration, so there will probably be a few parties going on anyways.

    I think that it's not doomsday so much as a largely acquired alteration in human consciousness. I think it's the next turn of the wheel of time as far as people go. Tarot has the Tower card, which represents a complete upheaval in order to start over. it's about as literal as the Death card, in that it's just a representative of complete change, not a literal destruction of everything we know and hold dear. Perhaps there will be a lesson that might go down in history, so that we can evolve though.

    Actually the truth is two folds.
    1. Doomsday - its true, it will happen
    2. Date of doomsday - its not exact.
    The Mayans did not use calendars that we use these days therefore to understand their dates we need a conversion.
    And, that conversion is not 100% accurate. Because of this inability to accurately calculate Maya dates we can't predict that 21-dec-2012 is dooms day.

    I didn't hear about that but I would think so they know when they plan to kill us out. this may be our warning. However they said we was to end a few times now like we got the gov playing god. just live with faith and behave cause we will go someday.

    One of those "know one knows for sure".  I believe the world will end as we know it....when is the million dollar questions and the answer would be worth much, much more.  A good rule to live by is to simply live as there is no tomorrow and treat others the way you would like to be treated.

    I wish it does not come true. But hey, I wanna be prepared if it does.... like why not call upon God to wipe out all our sins, and if there is no God, than let us enjoy to the extremes.

    I will still love to celebrate for the ingenuity of Maya, which helped us think on this topic.....and rafken too.

    There are three possible disasters that could happen in 2012.

    1. The Greens could win power here in Australia in their own right
    2. The Clintons could re-take the White House
    3. The biggest disaster of all... NZ could win more medals than Australia at the London Olympics!

    There are many sides to a story. We must always remember that the concept of "end of the world" does not necessarily mean ending because an ending could be a new beginning. It could be a restart or a start of new collective consciousness, a world with no dependence to oil or no more of the nonsense wars. That's just one positive way of looking at it.

    Try looking up Terence McKenna. He does have some interesting views on it related to the psychoactive substance DMT that is found in some plants and at the same time in our brains.

    Do you remember the so-called "millenium bug"? Because of the two digit representations of the year on our computers nobody knew for sure what was going to happen when 12-31-"99 turned the next day 1-1-"00?

    That thing was covered on television and in the newspapers relentlessly as the "Y2K Bug". Warnings that your electricity, telephones, and other utilities might be rendered useless were everywhere. People rushed to the grocery store and stocked up. Folks loaded their guns waiting for the looting to begin.

    Guess what I did.....I bought two tickets to the nicest  dinner and concert venue in town, booked a 5-star downtown hotel, and took my wife out for the best New Years Eve date ever. The streets were emptier than I had ever seen them before on New Years, and that meant no waiting. The next afternoon when we arrived back at our house, the light switch worked, the telephone had messages on it, and my computer fired up like normal.

    The short answer to your question; no, the world won't end on 12-21-2012, but I do believe someday man will destroy the planet. Stocking up on groceries will make little difference though, when that day comes it's just over. The best advice is to live your life like everyrday could be the last.

    What i have to say is am sick and tired of people and so called prophets calling up dates for this and dates for that 2012 is the end of the world etc. I most definitely believe in GOD and that the world must come to an end. But the way this world is heading we aint got long here! My GOD aint no fool either to let anyone know when he's coming because everyone will get prepared. He is coming as a thief in the night. To ketch wicked people who continue to live vile and have no regards for Him with their pants down. TRUST ME LIVE A GOOD LIVE, DO RIGHT AND PLEASE GOD and if dooms day is in the morning you'll know where you stand.

    no i think the only thing the mayans wanted to do is to have some cost cutting so to remove the man who was incharge of making this calendar and all decided to take a break and so announced the last date i.s 21/12/2012     ..............................       don't worry folks it was a hoax created by media to promote the movie2012 and even if the earth was going to be destroyed it won't happen until io have graduated........ i.e in the year 2014

    I doubt it.

    I remember when people were going nuts because they thought that all electronics would stop working in the year 2000, and all hell was going to break loose. According to the nuts, we were going to loose power, and anything electronic would fail to work because of some idiotic computerized clock not knowing what to do when it came time to change the year to 00.

    I worked at a grocery store, and we had people hording food, water, gasoline, generators, and flashlights. People were buying crap so fast, we couldn't keep it on the shelves. And, all I could do was laugh at them. I mean what are you going to do with 32 gallons of water if the world doesn't end? And, if the world is going to end, why do you think you need it? We even had people fighting over cans of spam...SPAM!!!

    If you wanted to see how stupid people can be, you should have been at our store on December 31, 1999. It was insanity!

    Maya prediction is true but the way that it is interpreted was totally wrong. It is just a new phase of life getting started, an evolution of higher consciousness. The world ain't going to end so soon. So shop for your Christmas and enjoy your new year eve party.

    Nope.  I think the Mayan calendars may have just happened to run out then.  For example, supposing there were aliens investigating Earth in the 80's, they may have believed we expected the end of the world in the year 2000 because our computers weren't all set up to go beyond 2000.  See this article http://thinkingaboutthebigquestions.blo … g-end.html

    Since we are coming out of the age of rational consciousness and moving further into an emergence of higher consciousness and an integral ecological ethic, I believe that when ever it happens it certainly can be "in the blink of an eye" and most likely will bring humanity into a new era of awareness and spirituality.

    I for one will find myself a nice high perch somewhere above the clouds and far from any cultural centers, maybe up the Blue Ridge somewhere...LOL...no really, cosmologically speaking, things are happening out there in the Milky Way and beyond that could very well cause some disturbance of the obliquity of the ecliptic (tilt of the Earth in the plane of its rotation) which could be due for a flippin' and there could be great Earth changes such as climate, tectonic activity, sunami, etc...

    But complete destruction...I dont think so...I've just retired from my state job and am finishing up my grad degree...I am free and I have hopes for my future...but I'm just gonna keep making the minimum payments on my credit cards, just in case!!

    My 8th grade teacher gave us an assignment to prove that we existed.

    It is my contention that even if the world no longer existed that most people wouldn't even notice.

    Because most dont have enough discernment to tell the truth from a lie.

    Oh and who is this person or book that predicts this? Does the book state its author like most books?

    I do not believe the world will literally end December 21, 2012, however I do believe that there will be catastrophic events that will occur during this time, based on NASA predictions and educated opinions of experts in this field.  What exactly will happen I and millions of others do not know nor when.  However,  my family has opted to do as so many others..PREPARE.  For many months now we have been stocking up on food, water, ammunition, first aid supplies and other essential items that would be detrimental to independent survival.   I say if nothing happens..great, however, in a world with so many disturbing issues, it certainly does'nt hurt to be responsible and prepping items that could decide life or death for your family and loved ones.
