    Everyones talking about the coming of the End of Earth as we no it .
    What are your thoughts?

    Personally, i think if we as the dominant species of this planet, had taken better care of it, this subject would never have come about.

    Air pollution, War. Hate. Racism.

    It all contributes.
    And none it does any good at all.

      There have been a lot of hubs written about this subject. One I recently read made a VERY good point about the Mayans also having had a starting date on their calendar which we KNOW is wrong.

          Read it. The Mayans apparently thought the world started about 4000 BC or so, which-- I think-- is later than the Hebrews  thought.

      I don't think there's any chance of the world ending to tell you the truth but i could see something similar to y2k happening, im sure there will be an extream panic around that time

          Unless mine was poorly written, I have a hub about surviving 2012 scenarios and so far it hasn't done much. Guess I should have included 2012 in the title maybe?  LOL

      War. Hate. Racism. 

      All have been a part of human history, and most assurely have not contributed in the modern day to the the age old prophecy of the 'end of the earth'. 

      Pollution, that is the only modern addition to the very old notion/subject of the 'when' of the end of the earth, and no doubt well used as a scare tactic in the modern day, much like relgion was well used in days of old in the same regard.

      Hmmph. That is quite consistent with the sense that 'global warming' has become a 'belief' akin to a religion.

      I don't think that this world is gonna end in 2012. If it was to end, then it would have ended many years ago.

    I hate to break some bad news to you but a meteor shower that's headed our way will hit us by 2012 and will affect our entire atmosphere and kill everyone in the planet. So the only thing we can do now until then is...

    PARTAY! PARTAY! PAAAAR-TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

    There are so many theories and interpretations of the 2012 prophecy, that really it is very difficult to know what is and is not accurate. However in all of my readings and research the common misconception is that 2012 means the end of the world as a whole, but the actual premise of the prophecy is that the world as we know it will end. THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT, this means that society will go through a huge change, maybe a next step in the evolution of man, possibly we can reach that next level, The type 2 civilization that the physicist Michio Kaku talks about.
       I think we should prepare for change, not for the end of the planet, and hey who knows maybe in the preparation for change even if nothing happens it will at least kick start us towards that direction anyway.
