    None of us buy into this bunk. It's all crap. As someone else said, if the Mayans were so good at predicting stuff, where are they now? They didn't see the Spaniards coming? They didn't see the effects of that?

    Don't buy into the hype.

    I barely look further than a week ahead.
    Why would I look 4 years ahead?
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Big party at my house starting on the 20th.

    Great Food - Great Drink - Great Music

    Be there or be square.

    Well, right at that time the Sun is going to rise and appear dead center in the Milky Way galaxy and probably nothing will happen except that the magnetic poles of the Earth are going to reverse. The N Pole will be the S Pole and ViceVersa.

    So nothing more major predicted than gigantic monsoons - huge tidal waves - Earth-wide volcanoes - earthquakes - cataclysmic wildfires...hurricanes...massive tornado's an eclipse ~ but, you'll all be way too smashed to worry about it if you come to my party.

    The Mayans also say that by 2012; we will have gone beyond technology as we know it, we will have gone beyond time and money, and we will have entered the fifth dimension after passing through the fourth dimension.

    Planet Earth and the Solar System will come into galactic synchronization with the rest of the Universe. Our DNA will be "upgraded" (or reprogrammed) from the centre of our galaxy. (Hunab Ku)

    As I understand it, the prediction based on the end of the Mayan calendar is that the earth will end “as we know it”.

    Personally I think it will happen. I think it will become a “self fulfilling prophecy”. It will happen because so many people expect it to happen that they will make it happen.

    The real question is, what will “it” be?

    The world “as we know it” could end in any number of ways.

    Our financial system could collapse.

    Global warming could cause drastic changes in the weather pattern (think the movie “The Day After Tomorrow”.

    Our infrastructure (power, water, etc…) could fail due to terrorist activity.

    Our available supply of oil could become unavailable due to unrest and war in the Middle East, resulting in lack of power and fuel for everyday life.

    Our current Government could suspend the Constitution by imposing Martial Law due to terrorism and international unrest.


    The “end of the world as we know it” could mean just about anything that changes our way of life. Heck, it could even be something good like a cure for cancer, which would certainly change the world for a LOT of people.

    The mayans were actually pretty good when it came to celestially related stuff. Perhaps this marks some sort of galactic even (which is the most common theory). It doesnt mean anything bad is coming though. Could be something as simple as a comet passing by, or perhaps a blast of radiation imminent from the center of the universe in which would render all live in the solar system null.

    Either way..... good money opportunity. Nostradamus and the Mayans both predicted it. Some evangelicals also seem to believe it to signal something.

    We shall see.

    My theory? The start of a new ice age. Some scientist have already said we are on the threshold of one. I truly believe we are indeed headed down that road and global warming is nothing but a natural cycle.

    I think this also plays into the Planet X theory. Use your google fu! There are alot of believers! the anunaki, etc....

    I have faith in only one book! Like my pastor says, "there is only one person in the last 2000 years that has made such a large impression on humanity." We all know who that is.

    There is a book called "A history of the end of the world." It lists, quite hilariously, hundreds of predictions about the end of the world. Obviously none of them have come true yet. I'm not holding my breath.

    They're battin' .000, gang. All of 'em.

    Too bad the Mayans didn't live to see it.
