    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    I'd be a lot more concerned with the breaking of the eastern sky than the world ending in 2012.

    I don't put any stock in a dead civilizations' prediction of the end of the world in December 2012. The Mayans couldn't foresee the demise of their empire at the hands of the Conquistadors. Based on that, I would call their prediction on this matter suspect. Only I Am knows when this will happen.

    Haven't you guys seen the movie trailer? We're going to be wiped out with a gigantic wave, fireballs, and earthquakes. A gun won't help you in that situation, but a big bowl of popcorn will!

    Not that I think anything will happen in 2012
    but just because the Mayans didnt see
    their own end doesnt mean they couldnt
    be right. Lincoln had dreams that he would be killed
    just days before he was shot but didnt stop it or see it coming.
    Most civilizations dont see the end coming regardless of any of their
    past great accomplishments.

    The Mayans got tired of carving stone at 2012 that is the end of the story.

    When I taught high school a large Los Angeles radio station hyped a Nostradamus prediction as saying the Big One earthquake would happen at 10:30 AM on a particular Wednesday. In class, we were of course talking about it (I was trying to interject a little sanity) when the clock reached the predicted time. I had my hand down at my side and was standing next to one of those large school tables (3' x 8' or so): I grabbed it and started shaking it violently, and got a horrified look on my face and shouted something like "Oh, NO! The BIG ONE!"... before nearly collapsing in hilarity at their reaction (some actually believed me for a moment - and made their displeasure known). Hopefully in the future they'll evaluate a bit more carefully those comments made by radio personalities - and by teachers.

    Sure, they were weasels and made my life difficult, but I occasionally got some points off them, too!

    Plans are dropping off the radar and out of society before 2012 and living on top of a mountain. All we'll need to worry about is defending what little we'll have and ourselves. Let the big cities draw the mayhem they will. We won't know anything until we see some smoke on the horizon.

    Nothing is going to happen in 2012. Idiots have been saying the world will end/the sky will fall, every year since time immemorial. And yes, I know some people will read this post and think to themselves: "What if that IS the year?---this cynic will get his." No. It's not. Just have some reasonable backup plans for anytime and you won't have to worry or fret over a some random date of alleged doom.

    This is more troubling than I first thought. I just looked at my calendar and IT ends December 31, 2009.

    Everyone over exaggerates the Mayan calender. They quit at 2012 because they knew everything would be digital by then, and making calendars would be much easier with electric technology than with hammers and chisels.

    Hollywood makes a big deal out of a belief system of an ancient culture that had many flaws to begin with. And of course there will be people to cash in on it. Several of my friends have gone celibate, given up even going to the bar and having a drink or going to dance at a club on Saturday night, because their cult has stated they need to forsake their pleasures to be saved on the day of judgment.

    I am sorry but I don't believe the world will end in 2012 and moreover I don't believe in giving up everything to be saved on that day.
