Maya Scholars, in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador and North America, have been watching with amusement and dismay as self-styled experts proclaim that ancient Maya prophets foretold an earth-shattering happening to occur December 21, 2012. This predicted phenomenon gets described in contradictory but often cataclysmic fashion--as an ecological collapse, a sunspot storm, a rare cosmic conjunction of the earth, sun, and the galactic center, a new and awesome stage of our evolution, and even a sudden reversal of the Earth's magnetic field which will erase all our computer drives. One even predicts the earth's initiation into a Galactic Federation, whose elders have been accelerating our evolution with a "galactic beam" for the last 5000 years. In sum, the world as we know it will suddenly come to a screeching halt.

It is a cycle! Like we have summer end of which rainy season, the spring-- winter etc... One season ends in the birth of another season-is it not. Like that Kaliyug will end (I am not sure about the year, let us accept Geethaji version) in 2012 and Golden Yug will start. Which is a far superior age and everything will be available in abundance, people from body conscience now, will be SOLE conscience- lot of happiness, wealth, prosperity, healthy relationship, good understanding is the hallmark of Golden age. So it is time to celebrate not to be in dukhi! Cheer up....We will continue to live but more happily....

I definitely believe in the 'end of the world' but not necessarily in the year 2012.....; the rapid rate at which the earth is getting warm clearly indicates this...............

No. I do not believe in this. If the world has to end it will end without any warning to anybody. Not even ASTROLOGERS will be able to provide advan ce info.

That would be AWESOME if it were, at least I can live like a Sultan in 2011 onwards :)

The 2012 was predicted by the Sumerian's and the Mayan's saying that the end will be bought by a large celestial object (Planet) by the name of NIburu, which has a highly eliptical orbit 'round da son & is sized 3x Jupiter. Every orbital cycle of Niburu, when it reaches the narrow portion of the eliptical orbit, it comes in very close proximity to earth & the supreme gravitational pull of Niburu is enough to cause a massive planetary collision.

The asteroid belt formed between Mars & Jupiter is theorized this way.
