Question: What are your thoughts on the world ending on 2012 and/or 2020!?
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
I am 60 now!. This is perhaps the 20th end of the world that I have been through!.

I will tell you exactly what to expect!. The morning after the end of the world, the sun will come up the birds will start chirping people will get out of their beds an get ready for work!. Moms will hug their Kids and everything will pretty much be like it was the day before the end of the world!.

Only one thing will be different!. All of the people who were talking about it as though it was real will be saying that they knew that it was not really going to happen!.

The day after that there will be a new date for the end of the world predicted, and those same people will be talking about how it is real!.

The whole 2012 thing is based on the Mayan calender but what some people don't understand is even though it stops at 2012 each period on the Mayan calender is 20 years long so technically it stops in 2032!.!.!. what is scary about this is the period presented on the Mayan calender is the period of destruction, which is also seen elsewhere on the calender, such as when Cortez came!.!.!. My thoughts, I'll wait till 2012 to see what happens!.!.!. until then make it an excuse to live life to the fullest!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It's garbage!.

Everything you have heard about 2012 is full of half-truths and outright lies, with the following 3 exceptions!.

1!. There will be an American presidential election in 2012!.
2!. The Summer Olympics will be in London in 2012!.
3!. The Planet Venus will transit the Sun in 2012!. (The only effect of this will be that a small dot will be visible on the sun in telescopes that are adapted to look at the sun!.)

That is all!. Everything else is bull!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I do not believe in numerology!.

Statistically, the sun shone and the earth turned pretty consistently for a couple of billion years!. I'll expect that trend to continue a good while longer!.

I honestly believe that there are some real problematic natural phenomena, like massive eruptions of Yellowstone or a huge quake in California or even q BIG ONE in Arkansas and Missouri!. We may get hit by a near-earth object!. There may be a wondering black hole that pulls us apart!. However, I have no reason to think any of those are looming in 2012 or 2020!. IF one of these happens soon, it has as much chance of happening this afternoon as it does on some specific date in the future!.

Many of the predictions of the end of civilization as we know it are just foolishness!. We have nuclear war, biological terror, and man-caused global warming!. It is true that these can annihilate human life or at minimum destroy the infrastructure needed to carry on civilization as we know it, but again, why 2012 or 2020 rather than next Thursday at 7:00 AM EST!? I see no reason to worry about a specific date!. Instead, work toward peace and stability in the world now!.

I give little credence to such predictions, and live life as well as I can until my own end or the end of what I know now!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

No man knows the end of age this is the same nonsense thats been said about 2000 & other specific years before!.!.!.yes the Mayan calender did predict some events which has happened in our past but it also made predictions which was suppose ot happen in certain years & never didWww@QuestionHome@Com

The Mayan calender is based on the cycles of Venus, which coincide with the solar cycle every 256 years, at the winter solstice, it had to end sometime!. It just happens to end 12/21/2012!. Just as the old calenders in computers only went to 1999!. They have to stop someplace!. As for 2020, I thought that was a news show on TV, never heard about the world ending then!. Harold Camping is planning for October 22, 2011 but he's been wrong before!.
Are you aware that someone in America has been predicting the end will come on blah blah date since the mid 1800s!? They just move the date back, when it doesn't happen, or eliminate, with extreme prejudice, any witnesses who took it seriously!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
