    What do you mean by "the end of the world"? The Earth? No. Life on Earth? Doubtful. The whole universe? Certainly not.

    "2012" is a hoax designed to scare children and adults who know nothing about science. There is no science behind it, and no scientists believe in it.

    The world has existed for over four billion years. Is it reasonable to expect that it will come to an end in less than three years? And all because of a Mayan calendar? Use some common sense.

    The most interesting astronomical events in 2012 will be an annular eclipse of the Sun on 2012 May 20, a total eclipse of the Sun on 2012 Nov 13, and a transit of the planet Venus across the face of the Sun on 2012 Jun 06.

    Scientists don't expect anything out of the ordinary to happen in the year 2012, or specifically on the date December 21, except for the solstice, which happens every year.

    None of the "predicted" happenings for 2012 hold up under close scrutiny. "Planet X" and "Nibiru" simply don't exist. The Mayan calendar ends a cycle, but there were no predictions of the end of the world. The Sun doesn't line up with the galactic centre; it's 6 degrees off. No asteroids or comets are actually predicted to hit Earth.

    All of this stuff was put together by crackpots in order to promote their books and TV shows, and shamelessly promoted by the History Channel. Don't take any of it seriously!

    The best way is to _inform yourself_ about 2012 by reading factual sites about it, rather than sites that are trying to sell you something. Here are a few:

    Or, if you want a video, here's David Morrison of NASA:

    Remember the Y2K scare? It came and went without much of a whimper because of adequate planning and analysis of the situation. Impressive movie special effects aside, Dec. 21, 2012, won't be the end of the world as we know. It will, however, be another winter solstice.

    Much like Y2K, 2012 has been analyzed and the science of the end of the Earth thoroughly studied. Contrary to some of the common beliefs out there, the science behind the end of the world quickly unravels when pinned down to the 2012 timeline.

    Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.

    The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012. Then these two fables were linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 -- hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012.

    However, there will be a solar storm, solar flares can cause some interruption of satellite communications, although engineers are learning how to build electronics that are protected against most solar storms. But there is no special risk associated with 2012.

    The 2012 hoax is FANTASY, and SUPERSTITION not SCIENCE!

    Do you really believe that the 30,000+ amateur astronomers just in the USA!!, and the hundreds of professional astronomers, would have just MISSED seeing Planet X! No where on the internet can you find the sky coordinates for this fake planet..

    No Near Earth Objects are on a collision course with Earth right now for 2012, and a magnetic pole shift takes thousands of years to occur. The rotational AXIS of the Earth has NEVER shifted 90 degrees!

    Also, the Earth and the sun line-up on the center of the Milky Way Galaxy EVERY YEAR on December 21st! We are actually about 6 degrees away from the center and moving further AWAY! Further, the planets NEVER actually align in a straight line; their tilted orbits prevent this.

    So please forget about this 2012 nonsense. It's just junk science gone wild on the internet!

    Watch this famous astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson as he makes fun of the 2012 hoax.

    Read NASA's 2012 debunking web site and see what REAL scientists say about 2012.

    As for the Mayans, they believed that the Earth was flat and had 4 corners. They also believed the sky was held up by 5 trees each a different color, and the Earth was resting on the back of a gigantic crocodile floating on a huge pond of water lilies! and of course, they worshiped the SUN god! Their calendar was about as accurate as the ancient Chinese, Romans, Greeks, and Arabs. All of them used for farming and religious ceremony.

    Good grief! Just "new age" hocus pocus! and junk science gone wild on the internet.

    No dude it isnt, the actual date is 30 feb 2013,

    Its the END, alll life in all forms, will come to a conclusive end.

    The earth will stop revolving around its own axis, it will stop revovling around the sun, the sun will collapse inwardly, our moon will just drift away and collide with saturn, all planets will goto 130000 degrees Fungadungaheit, (there will be no farenheit) universe will just fold up like a news paper.

    God will be nowhere cause he will be busy cleaning up the universal mess.

    U are alone, All ALONE, dying, crying, frying yourself..

    Prepare dude, Prepare.

    Have good sex, sleep, eat gud food,... have sex again,

    Days will turn into nights, and nights shall turn into days, utter confusion shall prevail.

    the Devil will be cracking jokes about your Holi Poli whatever...

    Hahahha! Why should we wait till 2012........Why not die in this year itself? It can be absolutely possible if pessimists like you exist.

    The kind of vibrations one radiates would have an affect on the nature's response. If you radiate doubtful vibrations.... you would end up in that chaos itself! However the media plays a major part in spreading such useless stuff! The innocent are dying out of that fear without experiencing the truth.

    I pray to God that your mind should be free of such a doubt!

    Please get out of that useless chaos!
