in my opinion i dnt believe it will end

everyone thought in 2000 that the computers would crash

and everything would go crazy

but thats not the case at all now as we see.

Who cares what the Mayans believed? I'm sure there were plenty of past cultures that thought they knew when the world would end. Why obsess over this one?
When the world will end or when the human race will go extinct is unknowable. People base it on whatever belief system they have. Whether it's a religion or they believe in psychics, Nostradamus, or Edgar Cayce etc. It's still all guesswork based on myths and supernatural nonsense.
If you want to worry about something that could end us, worry about global warming. There is actually some Science behind that theory.
Personally, I don't think we have to worry about "saving the Earth" it will be fine once we are gone.

Anyone seen the trailer for the movie "2012". Some wild scenes in there. I guess we won't have to worry about a sequel though.

Let's see...

1)  The end of the world has been predicted countless numbers of times throughout history, and has always been false

2)  The Mayans simply stopped making calendars for the future.  I don't see why that concept is so difficult to grasp for some people.

The Y2K stuff was very exaggerated and ridiculous (to the point that it was blown up to be the end of the world, which was never really proposed), but in the IT world, it was a legitimate concern.  Those watching over the computers could not reach a consensus on whether the computers would, internally, be able to make the change over into a new century.  

Given that just about everything in 2000 relied on computers in some form, this was something to be concerned with.  Not to the point that the general public exaggerated it, but for those who would be managing the computers in the event that the turnover was unsuccessful, it was a big deal.

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.

Silly theories about the Mayans freak your kid out and you plan on letting him in on the paranoid, fear mongering rantings of a hermetical lunatic in Revelations?  Perhaps you should wait until he's older...

I was reading that in a million years or so earth is going to be hit by another planet in our solar system.
The sun will eventally swallow this earth when it becomes a red giant.
People get over it. It is just how it is

At least I won't be around for THAT! It's my decendants problem! YAY!

Only God knows when that day will be and I'm not worried about it because I can't do anything about it when it happens. All I do know is that I am one of the saved who will be raptured before it all ends.

As there are so many answers to this question that have already been said, the same goes on in every conversation that i have heard from people. Some tell me yes by the mayans but like what alot of you have said we survived all the other times the world was going to come to an end. We're all just to have to ride it out and let whatever happens happen. Anything is possible and most likely nothing will happen at all.

I dont think anything will happen.  If it does, oh well, there's nothing we can do to stop it if what is predicted is true.

the collective consciousness of the earth is determined by the hearts of the individual inhabitants. scare tactic? could be...... whatever happens though remember that love sets you on a different vibration.
