2012 doomsday prophecy Knowledge Base
I am so scared about 2012 doomsday prophecy?
I'm so scared about 2012, almost to the point I can't sleep at night. When it happens, will we have a quick, painless death? Or a long, painful one? How can you prove that? I don't want the world to end...But I am getting so freaked out. What are your thoughts on 2012?
How many problems will this 2012 doomsday prophecy cause?
I remember reading about a similar prediction that happened in the 1800s'. People killed themselves and their family members, because they believed the dead would go to heaven first. Other people sold all their earthly possessions. It was basic chaos. Do you think some people will show the same behaviour this time?
Movies on 2012/Doomsday Prophecy?
Anyone have any good movies i could use on my research report that attain to 2012 or any Doomsday/End of the world prophecy? oh my goodness i cant wait for this movie, me and my friend saw the trailer and freaked out. According to my science teacher, theres not enough water in the would to flood the Himalayas because you have to account for the so many mile deep oceans, water isnt just going to shoot out of them.
What is your opinion on the "2012 Doomsday Prophecy's "? ?
It seems that wherever you go now, you see books and information and people talking about the "2012 Doomsday Prophecy's". Between the Mayan Calender, Nostradamus, The Biblical cryptic & numerical codes, it seems to be a major topic of discussion. Of course, there have been many past "Doomsday Theories" such as Y2K and 9/9/99 prophecy's that have proved to be false. What is your opinion? Is 12/21/2012 the end of time or is it just an ordinary day?
Do you buy any of this 2012 doomsday prophecy stuff? It's fascinating, but is there anything to it?
Below is a quote from Wikipedia on the subject of 2012 prophecy. Do you believe any of this stuff might actually happen? 2012 geophysical and cosmological speculations John Major Jenkins, and others  claim that an alignment will occur when the sun rises above the horizon on December 21 2012, at which point the sun will rise in the middle of the Milky Way Galaxy, thus causing an alignment between the earth, sun, and the galactic center. This event is said to cause numerous earth changes, however that is not possible considering that the event is only a visual phenomenon from the earths perspective, which is caused by the precession of the equinoxes or the 26,000 year wobble of the earth, which only changes our perspective, not the actual position of the earth in relation to the galaxy. In short, there is no gravitational force or radiation to be expected from this event because other than the tilt of the earth, nothing will be any different than any other solstice.  There are also claims like from Michael Tsarion  that an actual physical alignment of our entire solar system will occur with the horizontal plane of the Milky Way Galaxy on that day. The solar system is moving around the center of the galaxy every 225 million years or so, and while doing so is moving up and down in a cycle crossing the plane every 33 million years. According to the Journal Nature, this isn't so because there is evidence of the solar system crossing the galactic plane 3 million years ago. This would mean that we are moving away from the galactic plane not toward it, and we won’t be due to cross it for another 30 million years. There are also theories that a currently unknown planet, sometimes referred to as planet x or Nibiru, which supposedly has an odd orbit that only enters the local solar system every 3600 years will return in 2012 causing many problems.  The idea is traced back to Zecharia Sitchin and his translations of Sumerian texts and specifically to his interpretation of the VA 243 cylinder seal which he says shows that the Sumerians knew of 12 planets (minus the sun and the moon which they considered planets) and as such, this would mean there is another planet. This idea has been challenged by his peers, most notably, Dr. Michael Heiser who has written several papers on the subject,  one of them detailing how and why Sitchins interpretation of VA 243 is wrong.  Among other possible scenarios is that a shift of the earth's magnetic poles may occur, and that this will leave the earth vulnerable to harmful radiation from the sun. According to NASA this event does not occur on a particular day or year, but over the course of thousands of years, and contrary to popular belief the magnetic field does not vanish during this natural cycle, it just becomes more complex as it makes the transition. Some proponents of the pole shift scenario claim that this shift would be a physical movement of the poles of the earth, and not simply a magnetic shift. This event is called a true polar wanderer. Earth has experienced a few degree shift in the past, but nowhere near a reversal, and there is no reason to suggest this is likely or even possible. According to William Sager, a Texas A&M Oceanographer, a slight shift in the physical pole occurs at a rate between 5 and 10 degrees per million years, which means that this event could not happen on a particular day or year but only over a long period of time.  2012 metaphysical speculations 2012 is claimed by some with New age beliefs to be a great year of spiritual transformation (or alternatively an apocalypse). There is disagreement among believers whether 2012 will see an end of civilization, or humanity will be elevated to a higher level. Many esoteric sources[who?] interpret the completion of the thirteenth B'ak'tun cycle in the Long Count of the Maya calendar (which occurs on December 21 by the most widely held correlation) to mean there will be a major change in world order. Several authors have published works which claim that a major, world-changing event will take place in 2012: * The 1997 book The Bible Code by Michael Drosnin claims that, according to certain algorithms of the Bible code, an asteroid or comet will collide with the Earth. Drosnin also states in his book that the Bible code only predicts possibilities. * The 2006 book 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck discusses theories of a possible global awakening to psychic connection by the year 2012, creating a noosphere. * Riley Martin claims that Biaviian aliens will allow passage aboard their 'Great Mother Ship' when the Earth is 'transformed' in 2012. * Terence McKenna's numerological novelty theory suggests a point of singularity in which humankind will go through a great shift in consciousness. * Dannion Brinkley, in his 2007 book, Secrets of the Light, a follow-up to his 1995 bestseller
How do you feel about the Mayan Doomsday prophecy of 2012?
Katun 13, ultimate destruction, is on the horizon in only 5 more years. On December 21, 2012 the Earth, Sun, and the milky way's black hole will become perfectly aligned with our galaxy. Some astrologists say Earth will rotate backwards and thus whirl us into another dimension. Others say we'll simply just die by the sun's next stage of violent surges. Or maybe Jesus is comming back for us. lol
does anyone have more info on the 2012 doomsday prophecy?
for instance, the connection between Mayan's and many other culture's beliefs and/or faiths. anyone with any info at all please reply. thanks really, i know its just bullshit. there is a story here that im interested in. just to get things strait. i do happen to know a lot about it, just doing research on other people that do and how this affects the lives of different people of religion.
Do you think our freaky weather could be a prelude to the 2012 doomsday prophecy supposedly triggered in June?
I live in Southern california and we are having the freakiest weather ever! Some parts of our valley are getting heavy snow (so unusual!) fall as well as the mountains, tornado's (they are currently streaming footage of a local tornado (full blown), and flash flood warnings vs the extremely hot weather in the hundreds just days before. I read that the supposed 2012 Doomsday might be triggered by an event that will occur in June of this year, and if Hilary Clinton wins the election then the doomsday is certain. Does anyone else who believes in the doomsday event think all this strange weather is a prelude to the event that is supposed to happen and trigger the doomsday? I'm not trying to sound nuts, I'm just bored at the moment and freaked out by the weather. I never said I believed in it, I read on a website that a main event this June will trigger all the events leading up to the doomsday.
21st December 2012 doomsday prophecy?
According to various prophecies across time and across the world from the Myans to the bible, the book of revelations, and merlin, and the ancient art of I Ching, supported nmow by BIOnet and NASA the earth is enroute for a line up with the black hole in the centre of the milky way, which will bring about its destruction. What is your view on this date and prophecy? Are you ready for the end or is it a myth? http://survive2012.com/geryl1.php http://www.greatdreams.com/2012.htm http://www.diagnosis2012.co.uk/1.htm http://www.diagnosis2012.co.uk/1.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012#Metaphysical_predictions
Has anyone else noticed that the next election comes just over a month before the 2012 prophecy?
Our next presidential election is Nov. 6, 2012 and the notorious Doomsday prophecy predicts that the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012. How do you think this will effect the next presidential election? The operative word being notorious. The actual question is how do you think this notorious prophecy will effect the next election? Will people believe that the world will end a month after the election and how will it effect their votes? Now are we clear? Thank you Steve R. I respect your father's beliefs.
do you believe in the 2012 prophecy?
Do you believe in the 2012 doomsday prophecy, and why? if you believe in the bible Jesus said he would return in 2,000 years. I feel it can't ,go on like this to much longer!
Is anyone else a little worried if the doomsday prophecy of 2012 will actualy happen?
There is a doomsday prophecy said to take place on 12 12 2012 and im alittle curious how many people believe it is a possibility too.I mean not to sound religious or anything but in the Christian Bibles Armaggedon chapter it makes reference to a disease that will affect and kill many that could bhe this mrsa superbug. Next there is a reference to a one world currency well the dollar is tanking and the euro is growing its kinda weird but does anyone else think we may be at the end of times??
Do the doomsday prophecies for 2012 have scientific support?
The Mayan Calendar is the basis for most of these so-called prophecies, but it does not specifically say that doomsday will come in 2012. Their calendar just happens to end in that year. It had to end at some point, since no one can make an eternal calendar. Is there any solid scientific support?
Do you believe in the 2012 Mayan doomsday prophecy?
Well according to the Mayan's (who have a good track record so far) we have 4 years, 8 months, 9 days, and about 6 hours until the end comes. Their calender is a tad more accurate then our Gregorian calender used today. Many have said "this cant happen because Im to young" or "I dont care how advanced they were it just is not gonna happen" but the best has been "dooms dayers have been wrong before and they have yet to be right" The planets will be aligned like never before when that time arrives with climate change (notice I did not say global warming) and the current conflicts throughout the world one cant help but wonder "what if their right?".................. what do you all believe?
2012 mayan prophecy doomsday?
ok this has been making me crazy 2012 this 2012 that so i go on youtbe many times to see stuff about this ima christian so im not supposed to worry about anything but i still want to im only 15 so my brain may not understand this well but i want opionions on this my belief is that 2012 will be the day of ressurection some wat to start a new, the world is not gonna end cause science is retarted they said the world was gonna end in 2000 and this guy put all his life savings on putting busses under ground wen the diasaster happend,hers a video of not fearing 2012 video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pa3e9yO5zE tell me what u think about 2012 and dont be rude
What evidence or reasons do Christians have for following the (mistaken) 2012 "prophecy"?
First, let's clear up a misunderstanding. The Mayans made no prediction of the end of the world. Their calendar just happens to end in 2012. Being a cyclical calendar, it just starts over from the beginning again. Second, what reasons do Christians (who do follow this 2012 doomsday prophecy) have for believing a supposed Mayan prophecy? What is the evidence, from a Christian perspective, that this completely foreign culture's calendar ending on a particular date = the Rapture, Second Coming, Armageddon, or just plain old ending of the world? This is, obviously, for those Christians who follow the 2012 "prophecy" and not for those Christians who DO NOT follow the 2012 prophecy, though all are welcome to give their insight. Prema... by "(mistaken)" I mean that there is no such prophecy - it is mistaken that there is such a Mayan prophecy. Jer: Please see the explicit note at the bottom of the details. Thanks.
Doomsday, Russia, Iran, Scientists, Dec. 12, 2012, The News, What do you think?
i personally think scientists are just coming up with new ways to scare us. this may not be true, but its my way of not freaking out. do you think the world will come to an end anytime soon? do you believe in the Mayan Doomsday 2012 prophecy? do you think the world is as in a bad shape as the news and other people say it is? i just want peoples opinions
Concern about 2012 Doomsday?
My biggest concern about 2012 is Dec 22 2012. On that day, the 2012 doomsday prophecy will be obsolete and I don't know of any good ones to take its place. Are there any new doomsday prophecies in the background ready to take 2012's place?
Do you fear 2012 doomsday cults might become terrorist organizations?
I mean even on yahoo answers in the Astronomy and Space category there is at least one 2012 doomsday fanatic, that uses sock puppets to report the questions of top contributors that debunk the 2012 myth. I fear if people like this join a 2012 doomsday cult, horrific crimes on humanity may be committed. An attempt at a self fulfilling prophecy if you will, it has happened before. Something else that bothered me today was the amount of people that wished an asteroid would strike the Earth as well as other means of causing human extinction. I think a lot of people just want to believe in 2012 doomsday prophecy because they wish it would happen. I just hope there isn't a 2012 zealot working at a nuclear power plant on 12/21/2012 Don't drink the punch Jane!
Is there any scientific of a so called "doomsday" to this 2012 prophecy?
I have been hearing all about this lately. I have heard the Mayan version. They never specifically say the world will end, they just end their calender for a reason I forget. Then I heard the biblical version. I watched a show on the history channel on decoding th bible. It said in 2012 a meteor will fall but it will be crushed. Then my friend said that a meteor is just supposed to come and hit us. I know that there is a "Winter Solstice" but will that do anything bad at all? Occurrences like this must have happen in the earths history before.
Everyone who thinks 2012 doomsday is going to happen is crazy?
And everyone who thinks it won't (or KNOWS it won't) is scared sh1tless? People feel better when sources like NASA debunk the 2012 prophecies but they themselves don't know 100% what will happen either. It's obviously just the government (NASA) trying to keep the public at ease with there "scientific evidence" pfff. They are not God. My question is who's gonna be able to stay in the underground bunkers the governments been hiding from us? Oh geez I hope it isn't the illuminati
Do you think these recent Earthquakes are leading up to 2012?
I know a lot about the 2012 doomsday prophecies but do you think with all the recent happenings and massive Earthquakes could be leading up to 2012? I believe some have said that you will start seeing more and more disasters as the time gets closer? Could this possibly be true? And the whole thing about it lining up in the middle of the milky way even possible and cause cataclysmic occurrences?
Who else is scared that Nibiru will destroy the earth in 2012?
After all, this is where the 2012 doomsday prophecy got cultivated from. Before that, it was just the end date of the Mayan calendar. I haven't actually run across any Mayan doomsday prophecy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypothetical_astronomical_object_(non-scientific)#Planets_proposed_by_Zecharia_Sitchin
What is your view on the 2012 Doomsday Prophecy?
Personally, I think that 2012 (I am going to call it) is absolutely ridiculous. Just because a calender that is not familiar to us and a calender that we do not use ends on this particular date, that means the world is going to end on this particular date. What are the chances of the Mayans deciding to give up writing a calender because there was no real point to doing it? Very high, I think that the Mayans could have decided that the hell with this, we will not be around anyway when this happens. Maybe they were invaded while writing a calender. There is no scientific evidence to support this outrageous claim that the world is going to end. The World was supposed to end so many times in the past, what makes this time different?
Mayan 2012 Doomsday Prophecy?
I am in Honor's English 3, and we are currently studying Native American folklore, and what our next assignment is, is to pick a myth or prophecy, study it, and stand up in the middle of class and present it to the students as if we were telling a story, no paper to look at and no help once so ever. With 2012 approaching, I thought it would be suitable to tell the Mayan 2012 Doomsday Prophecy. What I need from you guys is, someone with knowledge in this area of history, to tell me more about the Mayans belief of the end, their calendar, how they thought their science played a part in the prophecy seeing how they were very educated astronomers, and anything that may be of use to me. No I do not believe in this prophecy, so please do not answer back saying how stupid I am for believing in it. I just think it would be very suitable to tell this tale.
Is the 2012 doomsday theory the biggest one?
I mean, was y2k talked about more than 2012 was? Was there any doomsday prophecy talked about more than 2012? If you believe in it, what do you think is gonna happen? be it in the U.S. other countries or the whole word? Wars maybe?
A question on 2012 doomsday prophecy?
A lot of doomsday prophecies made nowadays are either caused by religion, or science. Take the 2011 doomsday prophecy into example. I can't remember who stated that the world was going to end on that day, but he said that the rapture would happen on may 21, 2011 at 6 pm. He said that only 2% of the earth would go to heaven. Well... We're still here today, aren't we? So my question to you, the people: Is this doomsday prophecy religion based or science based? And: Do you think it's bullsh$t or real?
Mayans 2012 doomsday prophecy?
On 21st December 2012 is the end of the mayan calender which some people say we will mean the end of human civilization. what does everyone think of this prophecy?
If we already know that the 2012 prophecy is not true, why do people still believe in it?
Let's face facts. The Mayan calendar may end on December 21st 2012, but the Mayans did not foresee this as the end of the world, rather, the end of a cycle. The only reason the "2012 apocalypse prophecy" exists is because the people who discovered it misinterpreted it as a doomsday prophecy. Books have been released on why the 2012 thing is as fake as Fox News. So why do people still believe in it?
Atheists are you ready for the fake 2012 doomsday prophecy?
which by the way there is no prophecy of a doomsday anywhere...nor was it ever written in the bible, up until the 18th century people began making bull crap claims that the world was going to end. and plus a man spent more than $324,760 getting ready for utter bullShit to take place in December
Are we still experiencing the "2012 doomsday prophecy" signs?
Small signs of course. We just got the record breaking weather in July last month according to CNN which was announced today, and the extreme weather of the nation back in 2011(it seemed like I was going to drop dead out there even with water). The news also stated about solar flares reaching their peak as well. Don't know if you heard about the strange noises going on that sound like trumpets(heard all over the world-- it sounded like something out of war of the worlds or like the gates of hell opening). They just recently found a Super Volcano in Italy the other day as well that could easily erupt any day.
Do you think 2012 prophecy is actually going to happen?
Anyone believe the Mayan doomsday prophecy? dec 21,2012 is when something catastrphic is supposed to happen. If this doesn't happen there is supposed to be a "new age" where humans go through a "spiritual transformation" what do u think that means?
What do you think about the 2012 doomsday predictions?
I just watched a show on the History Channel (I think) about the 2012 Doomsday predictions. I had never even heard of such a prediction outside of the Bible, but the show did list several sources for the reasoning behind the demise of the Earth around that time. I am most interested in the Scientific basis for the theory. It stated in that program that in the year 2012 that the Earth and Sun will be at the center of the Milky Way, and will cross over the universe's "equator" and, this change will force the Earth to change the magnetic polarity of our North and South Poles. (North pole will register South, and visa versa). This monumental change would create widespread havock on our planet. Causing worldwide mass extinctions, volcano's, and earthquakes. (They stated that the planet has in fact changed its magnetic polarity before, 800 million years ago). It was an eye opening program to watch. Any thoughts?! I forgot to mention, that in the program they said that by the Sun and Earth ( and I guess the rest of our Solor System etc.) crossing over this galactic equator, It will cause the sun to have extreme solor storms that emit much more radiation, destroying more of our satalllites. In fact, scientific predictions, ( and warnings) say 2012 will be an active solor year. Who really knows what will happen when the sun crosses over. Lets keep in mind that whatever effects the sun, ultimately effects us here on Earth. Thanks for your thoughts! Yeah, I guess that you have to believe that the center is going to be reached/crossed in or around 2012, to make the prediction even possible. Thanks! : )
Where can I find info on the Mayan predictions before this date?
I'm doing research on the Mayan Doomsday prophecy and I need more information on the predictions for events that have already happened. I can't seem to find it anywhere, all the sites just talk about 12-21-2012. I know about 2012, I want to know about before that.
Has any scientists ever considered what will happen on December 12, 2012?
I know that it is a doomsday prophecy, yet the Mayan Calender is accurate. So do scientists have any guess as to what will happen on that day? I am not asking if they think it is a hoax or asking you to quell my fears, I have none. I was just wondering if scientist has ever considered what would happen.
Just take 30 seconds of your day to answer this question for a social studys survey.?
1. Do you believe in the new world order? 2. Do you believe the Masons to be a satanic cult? 3. Do you believe the illuminati still exist today and brainwash the younger generation with media? 4. Do you believe in the 2012 doomsday theory? 5. Do you believe the Mayans prophecies are true and have succeeded? 6. Do you believe in any other conspiracy related theories?
What points about the Mayan 2012 Prophecy are interesting?
I am doing an informative speech and the problem is that ther is so much information on the topic I am not sure which three points to focus on. Does anybody have any tips on the matter. What would you like to know about the prophecy? Regardless if it is a prophecy or not I am still needing to do a speech on it.
What chance is there that the 12/21/2012 prophecy is true?
I know, another doomsday question :P But I'm asking this because there is lot of hype about the End Times and Conspiracy Theories lately. They say that the given date for this prophecy to come to a head is on 12/21/2012. In your opinion, is there a chance that this will take place or not? Why or why not? Opinions from believers and non-believers welcome.
Who wants to talk about the year 2012?
Who actually believes in the 2012 prophecies? What's your opinion? I personally in a way do believe it because so many prophets have predicted not to mention the Mayan calendar, but what do you all think or believe?
Is the year 2012 really only going to be 2011?
The Millennium didn't actually take place until 2001 (the Christian calendar didn't include year zero). This being the case, is the year 2012 really going to occur in 2013? Does this change anything?
When are all the 2012 Natural Disasters going to start?
I know we have had some disasters already, but nothing exceeding any previous years. If the 2012 WORLD CHANGE and calamity theories are correct, shouldn't we be seeing more disasters/wars/diseases/solar flares, etc ... than what we might see in a typical year?
What Do You Think Is Going To Happen On 2012?
A lot of people keep saying that the world is going to end on December 21 of 2012. But other people say that the Earth will shift. So I just want to know what you think about 2012.
Do you believe in the Mayan doomsday prophecy?
The Mayans have accurately predicted many significant historical events. They predicted the world will end on December 21, 2012. People think that because they have been right about a lot of other stuff and that they have some weird scientific stuff backing them up it could happen. What do you think?
What are the scientific facts for 12-21-12?
I keep hearing about this 2012 thing everywhere, and of course it makes me a little nervous. But I would like to know what are the actual scientific facts about that day? Is it all just doomsday prophecies and the calender ending or do scientists say as well that we are all doomed??
Why in the world do people think the planet will end in 2012?
The Mayan calendar is supposed to 'end' on December 21, 2012, and we are all supposed to go through a global catastrophe. Why do people think the human race will die because a calendar ends? I mean, my calendar ends and nothing happens except the need for a new one.
When is the next popular doomsday prediction?
I'm curious when the next popular apocalypse prophecy is, it seems like a good excuse for a fancy dress party, kind of sad I missed Saturdays apocalypse but I had uni work due in on Monday! Anyone have any idea if there are some before the Mayan one?
What are the chances of something happening in 2012 that was predicted?
First off, I will say that I don't believe that 2012 will be any different of a year than any other one. I am asking about how people will react when the year finally comes around. With all of the media that this so called "prophecy" has gotten, don't you think that people will go to great lengths to try and stop it, since they "know" that it will happen? Or, on the other hand, will people go to great lengths to make something happen in an attempt to fulfill the predictions?
Daughter afriad of end of the world predictions?
I had this experiance 1 year ago, when some guy predicted judgement day on may 21st 2011. Now, shes heard of all these 2012 predictions and its rteally making her scared. She is very irritable and suffering with anxiety, she already has anxiety and this is making it 10 times worse. She has seen these websites saying ' you dont know the truth' and all these videos on youtube promoting doomsday prophecies. I have tried to tell her its all rubbish but she is so disinterested in everything at the moment, she is very quiet, which is totally out of character. Please help me pursuade her there is nothing to worry about. She is 15 by the way, thanks
have the recent natural disasters got anything to do with the mayans prediction of 2012?
the mayans and some other doomsday prophecies said that the world would end with lots of natural disasters, i mean recently there have been loads of earthquakes, floods and now a volcano has erupted! i do believe the mayans they predicted ww1,ww2,every lunar and solar eclipse to this day, 9/11, the planet getting hotter (climate change) and more. should we consider this the mayans prediction coming true?
Any other doomsday prophecys that have failed to cause trouble?
So, I've heard all the bullsh!t about the 2012 prophecy. I know its all a big con... But I'm still kinda freaked out about it. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me any other doomsday prophecys that have failed (other than the millenium bug). Just so I can calm my nerves a bit. :) Thanks
