2012
« on: August 28, 2009, 03:44:49 pm »
Has anyone heard about the end of the world coming in 2012? What are peoples thoughts on that? Premise behind it is that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012 implying the end of civilizations. Other people believe in the end of the world coming in different ways as well. Thought?

Yes 2012 will definitely be the end of the world for some people.  I think the theories are interesting and hopefully I will still be alive to see what's going to happen.   People have been predicting the end of the world since it began who knows this time they may be right this time they may be wrong again.

  The end of time is when God decides.  If you believe the Bible, read Revelation.

bldrdev,
I agree.  However, it is interesting that you posted this because my 9 year old and I recently have watched a few Discovery or History Channel shows about this and it has him freaked out.  I have to keep reminding him of what bldrdev said.  I think the shows we watched featured some scholars which stated that they believed that the Mayans kind of believed in the beginning and end of time periods, not necessarily the end of time.  The end of the Mayan calendar was supposed to usher in a new era, not the end of the world, but then I don't really think there are any Mayans left to confirm that.

2012... Now there is a thought. That in my opinion, is when the Zombie Apocalypse will begin. Are we prepared? Will we survive? I suspect that we are all in for a very difficult time. I am preparing myself for this unlikely, yet factual event which is about to hit us all in four years time.

Now we're talking!  It'd be fun, provided I survive.

The mayan's worshiped time, right?

The way I look at time:
I don't think time even exists the way we think it. What you think as the past is no different than the present or future. You only take it as the past because your brain has the ability to "Record" the changes in energy. You take the present as "now", but "now" doesn't exist to you because "now" has to happen before you know it. You take the future as then/unknown, because your brain doesn't have the ability to know it.

I think you may be able to predict the future, if and only if the future is one string, thus meaning "fixed" in one direction.
But I'm not sure of that.

Haha. No, I don't believe the world will end in 2012 (well, maybe it will if Obama is elected for 4 more years -- just kidding). People have been predicting the end of the world since the beginning of time. Please don't lose any sleep over this. We will not see the world end in our lifetime.

Yeah, I remember when I was a teenager, I went to the movie to see something called The Late, Great, Planet Earth.  It was about the predictions of Nostradamas. sp?  The world was going to end really soon.  That was in the 70's.  I do remember it freaked me out.
