We have already had two world wars, will the world end with the ultimate war between good and evil in the year 2012?

Biblical prophecies have been right before. One example is the birth of Christ, which fulfilled about 300 prophecies. Before Armageddon comes however (and December 21 2012 is not predicted in the Bible as "Armageddon Day"), biblical prophecies speak of a great time of GREAT TRIBULATION on the earth. Having said that, the Bible not only prophecies about a battle of Armageddon on earth but also increased earthquakes, floods, famine, disease, wars and rumors of wars.

There will be things happening in the heavens far beyond our control. These are not end of the world 2012 dooms day predictions. But the Bible does say God will use cosmic events as means of his judgment on earth before the final day of judgment. If there is a dooms day, that's it. However, before that day, Revelation 16:21 speaks of catastrophic disasters like 50 kilo hailstones. Matthew 24: ...more

Frankly speaking I do not believe all this. And each one of us has to die some day , so even if the doomsday is scheduled for 2012 , why fear it as no one is immortal.
And I have a very good sugeestion for all those who believe that the world is going to end in 2012.Such persons may kindly transfer all their assets and bank accounts in my name with effect from 1st January 2013.

Frankly speaking I don't believe that the world will end in 2012. In my lifetime I have heard many times over that the world will end but it never has and so I don't believe such prophecies. Anyway I believe in living in the moment and enjoying each day, take it one day at a time.

Mr. Rohit, my equation in life is SIMPLE........

I trust Doctor when I have any disease.....b'cos I know, there is no fun in putting my intelligence into it, a doctor knows it better........

I PUT MY THOUGHT AND INTELLIGENCE TO THOSE FACTORS IN WHICH I CAN CONTRIBUTE.....

I know that GOD has created this universe.....HE IS THE CREATOR, OPERATOR AND DESTRUCTOR...... God is the best Person(power) to decide about the ultimate fate of this universe....Let's have patience and wait for the same....

Untill then, just chill......

The second last ruler of the Mayan Civilization was Smoke Squirrel (SS), he ruled from 749-763 AD (fact courtesy of the internet), he was an ambitious ruler looking to expand his kingdom and increase his wealth. In the year 755 he hired a young war strategist Chief Tapori (fact courtesy of my imagination) to help him in his conquest.

Tapori came to the capital city from a small town and had very good references, but the truth was those references were fake, they were made up by his good friend Avin Ashji, in reality he was a flirt and a womanizer who was always on the lookout for the fairer sex. SS listened to his advice and waged three expensive wars that resulted in a lot of lost lives. After three wars SS was infuriated, he called Tapori I waged three wars based on your suggestions but those three hardly profited me, the Kings were poor and I have inherited their issues now, all those Kings had several wives. As per the rule of the war the winning King gets to keep the wives, I a ...more

The Pejavar Swamiji - Vishwesha Tirtha was asked this question during an interview on Suvarana TV. He replied quoting the shastras that Pralaya is not likely now. Even if this Kali Yuga ends, it will only be the beginning of the next Satya Yuga. So, perhaps the Mayan prediction of 2012 should be taken symbolically and with a positive attitude. Let us hope that 2012 will bring a transformation in the consciousness of all human beings - for the better.

Sir
Yes smart of Hollywood to cash in and unfortunately they make it in such a way that so many people believe it, Did any of you see PLANET OF APES, I did not see it but heard about it, imagine Apes in the White House,

On a serious note, FORGET 2012, if we die tomorow then the Whole World ends tomorrow for us 2012 is too far away. Anyways, lets not worry about when the World ends and put our thoughts towards how much are we prepared before we leave the World, because then we have to face Almighty Allah and give in our accounts. May Allah make us worth while in this World and in the Hereafter, ameen.
There is no date fixed in quran and bible about the last hour
Hope that helps .
