Question: What is your opinion on the so called, "End of the World" Date!?
You know how everyone is saying the world will end on 12/21/12!. I saw a show on that a long time ago and I believed it at first and got really scared!. But then right after that, the same show was talking about how aliens landed on Earth!. So first off that show is bull!. & I don't know if you are religious, but in the Bible it said that the world is going to end when we don't know it!.!. And I sure know about it!.
But I do know one thing!. I will be scared on that day!. It should be interesting!.
What is your opinion on all of this!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
well first of all you need to be specific about "End Of The World"!. Do you mean the World as in The Planet called Earth or only The Human race or The Universe that is so vast and unreachable!?

Apart from the Bible, Planet earth is gonna be okay even though Human being will be gone forever!. The Earth is only small thing not bigger than dust in this Universe (you know, High-school study about the universe contains of SuperClusters and it contains of Clusters, and it contains of Galaxies, and it contains of Stars, and there you are the smaller one called earth)!.

The worst case scenario When the earth's surface is no longer supporting life for whatever the reason; then as a Human we can put our hope on the International Space Station that currently has 5 rooms and 2 toilets for our humankind to live on!. Being an astronaut is your best chance to live on by then!.

If you ask about the Vast Universe, I think, even my next 100 generations will still be wondering how the end of it will be!. By the way you will be long gone before that!. So don't worry be happy!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Ask this of the Millerite sect of the nineteen century who's founder predicted the date of the second coming of the lord!. They all stood on a hilltop on the appointed date and time after selling everything that they owned and giving the money away, only to end up destitute and still on earth without becoming any holier!. To sum this up, predictions of this nature have a history of being nonsense!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

There is no date when there world will end!.

The world will end simply when we are done!.
We are done with our purpose, and all living beings on the earth and in our galaxy are aware of it!.
We will peacefully leave life!.
We will not only leave earth!.
We will not only leave space!.
We will not simply leave the milkyway!.
We will leave!. Leave everywhere!.
We will be gone!.
But we will have done the impossible!.
We will have lived as humans!.
The most complicated beings known to our world!.
And when we simply leave!.
All will peacefully leave!.

This date can not possibly be planned!.
No one will know of it, until that very day!.
Perhaps that very minute,
but that will be all the preperation we'll need!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Many people and many groups through the years have tried convincing the world at large that they know when the world is going to end!. But we are still here!. Why borrow worries of the unknown and the future!? Live your life, do no harm to others!. Worry about your family, your friends, people you care about!. If and when the end of the world happens, be at peace with your self with the knowledge that you lead a good life!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

i'm atheist so the bible thing, don't believe that, however it was mistranslated, and means the end of the time time as in time of that zodiac sign and goes into the next one!. it's that jesus is symbolic of one of them(the one after the ox, why moses was so mad, cause they were worshiping a false idol, and then the next one is Pisces!.
and for the myans, i'm not sure if they knew that, wouldn't be surprised, as they were a highly advanced civilization, but i also think they coulda just ran out of time working on it, cause they did die out after all!.!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Complete and total BS!. Nobody, but nobody, can know when the end of the world will happen!. There have been doomsday theories since the beginning of time and every time a new century is ushered in, people go nutz!. Remember that group that all killed themselves when the Hale-Bopp comet was coming!? It didn't happen and those people are still dead!. Think about it!. Jim Jones killed all those people in Guyana back in what 1978!? They're all still dead and I doubt very seriously that he's in Heaven! We do not know what tomorrow is going to bring!!!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Presumptuous!. They were wrong about Y2k, excuse me Y2Crap!. The future is unknown!. The media capitalizes on this fact because people are always afraid of the unknown!. Basically, it's a cheap theatrical show used to make money!. It's all about making a profit off of peoples fear!.
Sick I know!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Not "everyone" is saying that!.

Only idiots!.

So, the only think to be scared about on that day is what some idiots might do because they believe in it so much and have so much emotion invested in it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I don't believe it!.
I believe it will be much like that of Y2K!.
Panic and chaos, for nothing!.
I believe when the earth ends it will be because humans will destroy each other!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

They said the same thing about 2000 !.!.!. It will be a day like any other day!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

My opinion is that throughout history there have been doomsday predictions!. The black plague, people thinking the detonation of an atomic weapon would ignite the atmosphere and burn the entire earth, Y2K, and so forth!. Basically, the earth keeps spinning, we're no smarter for it, and after 12/21/12 you'll start seeing the next group of doomsday theories (and I'll wager someone will tie it to Nostradamus :P ) We're going to be just fine!.

Here's an underlying question for you right now!.!.!. if that were the end of the world, would it change anything!? People like to think that they'd just go completely hedonistic until then, or they'd repent and turn hyper religious, but most people panic slightly, but continue to live their lives!. Even on that day, I won't be scared, I won't be looting and pillaging, I won't be going all hedonistic!. I'll sit back and see what happens, cuz I have no control over that whole thing!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'm betting 50/50 on it!.
I won't be scared though, I'm actually planning a HUGE party!.
If we go[end/die/whatever], I want all of my loved ones together!.
if not!.!.!.!.!.

More and more scary evil dictators are aquiring nuclear arms every year!. Scary evil dictators all have one thing in common-they are all batshit CRAZY!. I do not see how the planet is going to avoid a full scale nuclear war in the next 100 years!.

If we DO miraculously avoid WWIII, we still have a tremendous problem with overpopulation!. I am only 32-when I was a kid, there were 4 billion peeps here on Earth!. Now there are 8 billion!.

World population cannot continue to expand by 200% for every generation w/o severe food shortages and plagues of disease!.

I am just trying to live life to the fullest, appreciate every single day, and save lots of money to buy land somewhere in the middle of nowhere in my old age-where I can grow my own vegetables and guard my plot of earth with a shotgun!.

Don't be afraid of the 'end' though!. This entire life/sphere of existence is all illusion anyways!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
