    I personally do not believe that.  I believe we are not meant to know the exact date the world will end.  If we were, then what is the point of existing now?  Why not just get it over with?  And why continue on with life as if nothing were going to happen?  (Rhetorical questions by the way.)  I am a believer in the words of the Bible, that Jesus will return "as a thief in the night", or completely unexpected in other words.  Not even HE knows yet when He is coming.  Only God knows.  That is my opinion, so I ask that you respect it as I will respet yours.

      I don't believe that the world will end abruptly, but I DO believe that there may be major natural disasters that will worsen and be more frequent. So, I believe in the 2012 theory to some extent, but really, I believe that it might be an end of an era, not the world itself.

      It seems like storms and natural disasters have gotten worse. I live in PA and we had an F2 tornado. We hardly ever get tornadoes here, and it was pretty bad. Then you have hurricane katrina, Haiti last year, and the disaster in Japan.

      I am not 100% sure something will happen, but I heard the sun's flare or something will take out electricity in 2013. It's a natural thing, not a magic thing.

      We all can agree that natural disasters are real, so if the world does end, it will likely be due to a natural disaster or some event that will harm us.

      I think that the world as we know it will end. We are already on that course. Mankind has survived all the cataclysms of the past.  The Mayan forecasts were made based on the past. The Mayan calendar is circular, like the medicine wheel of the north american tribes. When the circle is completed, a new cycle begins. It must also be noted that in numerology, 12/21/12 is 3/3/3

    Seeing the way things have been going in the past few months, I think something major will happen by then but it will not be the end of the world like in Roland Emmerich's movie 2012.

    Nothing is going to happen.

    The World will wake up to their bacon and eggs (or bowl of cornflakes in the Islamic world) on the 22nd and we'll all have a little chuckle and say things like "Well I didn't really believe it myself...."

    Within a few months someone will announce a shock discovery that the Zimbabwean/Maori/Aborigine/Welsh have also got an ancient calendar that runs out on March 21st 2018.

    Nope. And when it doesn't, the first thing I will do, before calling people, hugging my parents and crying because I'm so happy that I didn't die, I will go to Facebook and change my status to "Aw yeah, still here! Told you so!"

    Yet, another meaningless thread posted by someone who refuses to look up or search among topics already discussed.

    As for the topic itself is absurd to think it would end.

      Don't be so rude.  I simply didn't think about it.  That being said, I refuse to spend endless hours looking for a topic that I want opinions about.  I have better things to do with my time.  If I am lazy for re-asking a previous question and getting immediate opinions on it, then I bask in the ambience of laziness.

        Rude? I was only describing your actions. You find it rude, oh well.
        That's obvious.
        Well, to be honest, like I like to be....the search feature HP has built-in, would have given you an answer. That is all I was pointing out.
        Interesting you say that.

      You pulled it out of your arm eh? smile I like the scientific disciplines you applied.

      I thought it had more authority than the brimstone dwellers who didn't put an hour to it. smile

    I don't believe the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012.  But, very oddly or weirdly enough, not too long ago I saw a documentary that was filmed in 1989 in which some of the speakers said something about 2012 being a pivotal or transitional year - that was way back before the current brouhaha gained steam.  It didn't make me change my mind about 2012, but I did find it to be curious and strange.

    I wish we knew what time of day. I'll be Christmas shopping that day and the world ending would cut that short.

    Lovelife08, I hope you will not be put off by some of the replies here.  There are many threads in the HP forums that open up on the same topic, sometimes at the same time.  Usually we try to consolidate them, but that doesn't always happen and it isn't always possible.

    But I have one curious observation:  Just yesterday Cagsil and I had a little exchange of words because he was irritated at someone who had "revived a dead thread."  So, as far as I can see, if you actually had found another HP forum thread about 2012 and started commenting in that one, he might have commented on the ridiculousness and absurdity of reviving dead threads and suggested that you open a new one instead.  lol  lol 

    Oh well. hmm

      And, your statement lacks any foundation, simply because there are more recent threads. She also said that she was looking for opinions on the topic.

      Hence, there would be NO need to revive a dead thread, if she was only looking for opinions. She would be able to just read the thread. But, nice try/attempt to turn this out to be about me. roll

        As they say, "I was only describing your actions."

        And I'll practice what I preached yesterday.

        I don't understand why you or anyone else are so upset by what I posted.  So what if I resurfaced an "old topic" or a "dead thread"?  So what?  If it bothers you that much, why not just ignore it and move on to something else?
