Yes, I read it all and much more as I have been researching the 2012 prophecies of many religions and cultures for well over two years. The Mayan calendar is the one that gets the most publicity but there are others that are just as intriguing including the Christian religion's. Add to that that NASA last week announced major solar flare activity to peak around 2012 and it sort of makes one wonder. Another interpretation of the Mayan predictions is that it will be the end of the world "as we know it" and not a physical ending or destruction of the world. This allows New Agers to say that a transition will occur ushering mankind into the New Age where we are suddenly free of disease, poverty and war. Uh huh... like I see that happening in our lifetime... NOT. Maybe I am an unbeliever, though. Ah, what could turn the events in the New Agers' favor? Why a very public and undeniable visitation from our UFO Watchers who would obviously have the cure for everything and the knowledge and wisdom to run the world better than we humans. Can anyone say, "Alien Overlords?" Or how about the return of Jesus Christ to usher in the new millennium? Like I said, lots of theories and beliefs to play with.

See? I have fun with this stuff and delve for universal truths in whatever culture, religion or theory I can find.

I'm impressed Tony! If one would dive into history I'm sure they would find an increase in disasters in the last, say hundred years. I am sure the we humans are slowly killing this world and thus destroy mankind.

Some "cults" and "learned men" consider humans to be nothing more than parasites on Mother Earth (Gaea anyone?) and thus should be eradicated in order to preserve Her from our pestilence. Again, just another extreme view based on a tad of truth. I like to believe we can actually share in the creation and make our world better.

Hi All

Here I read, that world wil end on 21st of December 2012.

As far as I know, the mayan prophecy talks about:

END OF TIME

on 21st of december 2012 calculated gregorian calendar.

Do someone do not think that "END OF TIME" is same as 'cease to exist"?

Best regards, Vojko

My personal opinion is that December 21, 2012 will be the beginning of a new age for humankind. If that means some disasters and turmoil then I cannot say and will not try to "prophecy". However, I am not so sure that the Mayan calendar actually clearly states that it is the "end of the world" but more or less the end of a certain dispensation period.
