There is a website dedicated to this date. This date seems to be foretold in numerous writings, books and prophesies. It is the end of days, antichrist appearance, etc..
I won't go into biblical talk on this but the reality is that there are many people that will take this much more seriously than they did the Y2K fears and I expect there will be riots, lost civility and worse.
That is less than 4 years away.
I am not a "doomsdayer" or a "survivalist" but has anyone given this some thought?
Yoda, I am, yes.

No doubt...there will be a number of people that will play on these fears...for a buck for sure.
Never heard of that ???

the supposed doomsday prediction of December 21, 2012 is reflected in the Mayan long calendar.
This calendar has predicted events before, however if you look into it the calendar doesn't give exact date or events. the events are so vague that any event could make the prophesies true.....
For me, I don't buy into it.
I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.
IIRC That date is the end of the Mayan calender.
I sold and installed over 50 hitches for the NYCTA and NYPD to move equipment trailers for Y2K. I hope they fall into the hype again. More $$ for me
Here's my thoughts on the matter. If the Mayans were so good at predicting events, why couldn't they foresee the demise of their people group at the hands of the conquistadors/ Europeans and the diseases that they carried? I would take that prediction with a very large grain of salt.
I wonder how many cult followers are going to leave their "earthly containers?"

Maybe we can convince the demoncrats to wait on the gun legislation since the world will be ending in less than 4 years.
I don't want to get into a biblical discussion on here but, no one knows the time besides one.
Read my story.

Well said Ram Rod.
Hmmm...The world ending on Obama's watch...seems plausible. lol
I don't believe in that stuff. I follow Christianity, so like others won't get into it.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Don't think of the Mayan calendar as ending in 2012. Rather, think of it like the odometer in your car. When you hit 99,999 it rolls back to zero. So does the Mayan calendar.
Here is a website with a couple hundred predictions from over the centuries. All have been wrong (so far!).
