    I recently saw a show on the history channel that was about Nostradamus and his predictions for the end of the world. It also spoke of the Mayans prediction and how other religions back up the theory in their own way and all those theories conclude that the end of the world will be Dec 21, 2012.
    Could it be possible that the government has evidence that this will occur but is hiding it from us? In my opinion, nothing is going to happen in 2012, and I do beleive that the government knows somenthing about our planet deteriorating but they're just painting a pretty picture for us,assuring us that there is a solution but there isnt and is kind of scary. Let us unite and survive anything that mother nature might bring our way. Im ready for anything. How about you?

    What's your opinion on these predictions? Do you beleive that we will all die like in the movie 2012? Do you believe that the government has some kind of salvation for us?

      Absolutely not.  Anything designed to put fear in us and gives us a false sense of hopeless future is wrong and should be avoided.  Doom was not part of our design.  We should, however, live each moment of each day as if it were our last in mortality.  In other words we should make haste to improve our attitudes, foundations of faith, charity, raising of children, family history work and much much more.  Those are the things that give us purpose and a bright sense of future, not indulging in and debating the "end of the world."

      I know, it's fun though.. smile

        This is for the non- beleiver who say thisis just another day.  Every time the moon and sun align for a solar eclipse they cause extra gravitational strain on Earth, these have been known to correlate rather well with earthquakes and other seismic activities. On this day Dec. 21, 2012 it has been proven that our sun will align and eclispe the center of the galaxy.  Which happens to be an ENORMOUS SOURCE of gravitational energy. Powerful enough to keep our sun in orbit thousands of light years away.  The supermassive blackhole out weighs anything in our galaxy by a million times. There will be strain similar to that at the solar eclispe only this time the sun behaves like the moon and the supermassive blackhole behaves like the sun.  But yes only god will know what or when anything as unpredictable as seismic events will actually occur.  I am just saying it could happen than or shortly after.

          I have wondered ?   Is that black hole far enough away, and is the sun big enough that the sun could be said to eclipse the earth from the black hole?
             And If so would that not block out some of that gravitational pull just a tiny bit?

            Probably a stupid question?  Something that I have wondered a few times.

          Do you have any evidence of this alignment, I have heard it a few times now and have always thought that calenders like the Mayan which are based on astronomy would know this alignment - and put it at the end of their calendar.

      Hi friend mlizardo2010

      It is correct that the End Times is there; and that is why the advent of the End Time Reformer as prophesied by all revealed Religions has taken place in the symbolic form of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908- the Promised Messiah, Second Coming of Jesus, Krishna , Buddha, Zoroaster, Imam Mahdi etc.

      There will be no end of the world on Dec 21, 2012; rest assured.

      Over a period of many years there have been the nay sayers and the negative folks . This is merely emphasis on the negative. I can remember seeing TV  pic's of some guy standing in time square wearing a sandwich board warning all those who pass by about the end being near. That would have been the mid 60's and most of us are still here.LOL
      Living your life fear of the end only deprives you of the quality of life you could enjoy. There will always be the negative people in this world.
      There was also a period of time when building bomb shelaters became an obsession with a few Americans. We will all be nuked any day!!
      This is merely a new reach for publicity on behalf of a few who have interrepted some very old writings. If they are right we will know in 2012. If they are wrong we will have a very good Christmas in 2012. I would like to wish one and all a very Merry Christmas.

      Well, i haven't read all the posts so don't know what other people said, but what I do know is that the trouble with Nostradamus is in the translation of his work, irrespective of whether his premonitions were correct or not. People have tried to translate his words, yet have they done this accurately? And many of the translations are still pretty vague. I had a book once, that I borrowed from my boss - and even the book was not very precise. 

      I really do not believe the end of the world will be in 2012!

      December 21, 2012 will be my 62 birthday.  I have wondered about the Mayan prediction and Nostodamus predicition for a long time.  Though not looking forward to the end of the world it might be a fitting conclusion to a  what the hell am I doing here life. I live in a country where its purpose is to spread revolution and has been doing so since  the day I was born.  I can not remember a time when an uncle, a cousin, classmate or myself was not involved in some overseas conflict.  It is even  true today.  We are the new Mayans,  the big kahouna of the new world.  The end in  2012 is plausable as nations look at us as more as a threat than as a savior.  The shovels of the peace core,  vista,  job core have been long melted into gun barrels.  Fanatics plot ways to destroy us. Some us live in fear,  waiting  for the next  9-11, while some over throw governments trying to prevent it and in doings so create another enemy.

That kind of information would be generated by the scientific community and it would be next to impossible to keep it totally secret.

    Merlin (or King Arthur) is supposed to have left a load of prophesies.  Given that (even if such things existed and actually got into print for me to see them) they were interesting.

    They talked about a snake twisting all round Britain then diving under the Severn and raising its head in Wales - where Merlin is still celebrated as a historic entity in Caer Myrthyn - Merlin town.  I thought of the rail system when I read it which does exactly that.

    He also prophesied that when an oak was cut down the city would flood, they actually kept the oak stump until quite recently because of the prophesy - removing it for a housing development of course and the city certainly flooded that year.

    Merlin is also supposed to have prophesied the end of the world as a series of extreme natural disasters the stars 'moving' in the heavens - he said "dropping down". This would indicate the world turning in a different motion perhaps ?    Kind of ties in with all the  other prophesies in a way -

    I don't think anyone will disagree that the end of medicine and pharmaceutical companies will end the world as we know it.  I assume it will be a better world but for the rich and wealthy today it might be a little ugly.

    1 - people like Nostradamus have got more wrong than they have right. His 'prophecies' can be interpreted in a number of ways and are usually quite non specific.

    2 - If you subscribe to the Mayan long count calender theory, if they were THAT good why didn't they predict their own demise?

    3 - If you prefer the reversal of the magnetic poles theory, this happens gradually over thousands of years, not overnight.

    My vote is for sooner than 2012. Noah's angels are all over our ass, we're ripe for the picking our sins in full bloom and show about everywhere. Lies about God are everywhere. Money is God, no money no life. Ya can't harldy wipe ya ass without permission of some regulating body,and we've damn near wiped out the animals along with the sea critters too !! All that means that Lot must be right around the corner !!! Plus remember Jesus said he was one sneaky dude. Everyone is to be caught with their pants down. Show up early I say and pray .

         What's your vote ???

    While many predict the end to be near...I'm sure there will be a lot of milk and bread sold, gas etc.

    Many like me look to the future with high hopes. Nasa will test the new Aries rocket that will carry the Orion to the International Space station, the moon and eventually the inner planets.

    Kevin Costner will clean up the oil spill.

    The economy will recover and technology will help win the battle against cancer.

    World terrorism will go the way of the cold war and gatoraid will develop another flavor.

    I just don't see it happening.

    look at all the hype when we were going into the year 2000 everyone thought the world would reset back to 1900. I worked in a bank then and we took all the precautions we could to keep all of the accounts up to date. When the year rolled to 2000 nothing happened.....everything stayed the same.

    Enjoy life day by day because you never know when the end is coming. Stop worrying about 2012 live for today.

    The world as we "now it" will end. A paradigm shift is coming. But this is not new phenomena. Each generation sits and awaits the "end times" instead of consciously doing something to prevent it!

      I wrote a hub about this 2 days ago. The date of 21.12.2012 is supposed to be the end of the 13th 'bakt'un on the Mayan calendar, which started 3114 BC on our modern calendar. This was the date the Maya believed was the birth of Venus and the beginning of creation. But we all know that that date is way out, so why should we take notice of the 'end' date? They were a bunch of primitive jungle dwelling savages who ripped babies' hearts out to 'please' their gods. They hadn't even grasped to concept of the wheel. Why would we believe anything they said. And... they didn't even invent the calendar in the first place - it was the Olmecs

        Your primitive savages sound just like mid-western christians big_smile

        and you are wrong.   They made advances in calendar science that came from a past far more distant than the Olmecs - to the point where just do not know. Stonehenge is a calendar on the other side of the world from about the same time in very rough terms.

        Your description of their civilization based on "ripping baby's hearts out" is a trifle misleading for a nation that made roads, had a government, etc etc  -  it is a bit like describing the whole of american 'civilization' as a nation that bombs other nations.

          Well don't they? what about Iraq, Afghanistan ...........! Ooh Poet, you're opening up a can of worms here. And if you do your homework you'll discover that they DID rip babies hearts out, whether or not they built roads. As for the Olmecs, there are many conflicting opinions regarding the origins of the calendar, but to my reckoning, they can't have quite grasped the concept of time if they needed three calendars, where one would have sufficed.  and if they were so clever, why didn't they forsee their own demise?

    I have often wondered if human sacrifices were nothing more than a form of population controll.
       They sacrifised those from neighboring tribes, War prisoners,and whoever they wanted to get rid of.

       Food preservation just might have been a part of these sacrifices.

       Kinda like abortions are today. population controll

      I'm not speaking pro or con on this issue .. But ...

    what would the population of the USA  or the the world be today if none of those babies were aborted?  Remember that some of those babies would have been making babies for several decades now.

      I'm not speaking for or against abortion Just asking a question????

      Where would the population be if these women who found themselves pregnant had kept their legs closed in the first place? Or, at least used some reliable form of contraception. There would be no need for abortion then, except in dire medical circumstances. I don't think they worried about things like 'population control' , considering their life-span was only 45-50 years.

        That is true too.. 
          There is never only one reason for any behaveior like this.
        But for mu question how many abortions have been done and how many of those children would have had babies? That would make a substancial diffrence upon the world today.
           I can see where whoever was in controll of the food storehouses knowing how long they would last feeding X number of people for Y period of time being conscerned with the size of population.  Certainly not feed prisoners of war when there is already a food shortage. During times of plenty there would not being so many sacrifises. Might keep those prisoners as slaves.
            This might be but one of many reasons that they did it.

    I read a book recently that talked about 2012 - according to these folks - the Mayan calendar is based on the movement of the constellation Pleiades.   Their calendar apparently started when that constellation first appeared on the horizon.  According to their calendar the Pleiades will drop below the horizon not to be seen again on planet earth after the December date.  They did not believe that the world would end - only that a new era would begin upon the earth as many have before -   Southwest Indians of the U.S. also believe that the earth has gone through phases -
