NBR: End of the world ?

With 12-21-12 quickly approaching, do you remember how you felt the first time you heard the prediction? How do you feel about it now?

 I was probably in high school and I remember thinking that I would be 32 and old by 2012. I was sure I would have accomplished everything I wanted out of life and that I wouldn't care if the world did end. Bwahahahahahahaha.

Now, I'm sure I'm still going to have to make my mortgage payment next month Sad

Re: NBR: End of the world ?

  • Personally, I think it's crap. I think it's funny to see all of the people who take it seriously though.

    I hope that no crazies actually take it upon themselves to blow something up, that's the only thing I'm worried about. We don't need anymore devistating national news. :(

    I've also heard plenty of theories that cancel out the whole Myan calander theory. One being Leap Year, they didn't take into account leap year so it should have happened years ago.... I also heard that the Myan queen that reinged said to make the calander last until that day cause that will be the end of her reign...

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make my happy when skies are gray.

    You'll never know, dear, how much I love you. So please don't take my sunshine away.

  • I'm pretty sure that the whole end of the world part of it was fabricated by modern times as an assumption when the calendar reset. Its just like rolling over the odometer on your car. Its just going from one cycle to the next.

    Here is a good blog post/article about the whole Mayan calendar thing. :-)

     Leap Year, they didn't take into account leap year so it should have happened years ago..

    This.

    I've heard this too. We didn't start using leap year until like 40 something B.C. take into account all the extra days we've had since then.. the world would have ended years ago.

     I'm with Teddidan on the crazies too. I hope no one decides to do anything stupid :S

    I think it only equates to a few months, but yeah - all of the various calendars don't line up.

    After reading the article you posted, i think you're right, it  probably is only a few months.

    It's crazy how many different calendars are out there!

    I think it's a load of BS too. I hadn't even considered the crazies. Maybe I'll start my Christmas break early just in case Smile

  • A "friend" on Facebook had the most ridiculous post the other day about how if they Mayans were so good at predicting the future, why aren't there anymore Mayans?

    There are you idiot. A significant portion of the Mexican population are Mayan decendants. They may no longer live in the stone temples you can now tour, but there ARE Mayans. Grrrrrrrrr.

    HAHA too funny - I can't remember the first time I heard it.. I feel like it was only a few years ago - maybe 5 and I'm sure I blew it off!

    Funny side note: my dad gets in these doomsday moods and recently went out to buy powdered milk, canned beans, yams, etc lol Best part is he did this a few years ago and had to throw out all the expired food!

  • The first time I heard it I didn't think much of it because we're always hearing about doomsday prophecies. I think no one will know when the end will come baised on my own personal beliefs. At the same time I don't knock what these followers believe in because we all need to believe in something but I hope ppl don't do anything stupid.

  • I was watching something on this yesterday on the Discovery channel.

    NASA stated that the end of the world will definitely not happen on the 21st, but they did go into greater detail about some of the possibilities that could effect our planet and us somewhere down the road.

    My own personal belief is that: I don't believe the natural disasters and such is what's going to result in the end of our existence, I believe that the human race itself is what's going to ruin us.

    ETA: After the 2012 Apocalypse segment, the Discovery channel then played a Zombie Apocalypse prediction. Now that freaked DH and I the hell out!

    Zombies...now that is scary! DH and I live out in the country, which is where I would think would be the safest in the very unlikely event of a Zombie Apocalypse. lol It's fun to think about anyway. We have conversations about our plan of attack and survival strategies. haha 

    Let us live our lives the way we shall wish we had lived when life is over.

  • When I was maybe 10 or so, I saw a special on PBS about 12/21 and it really freaked me out because I just didn't understand. Luckily, I've since gained some sense and believe that no one can know what will happen from one day to the next.

  • I think the most important point is that the mayan calendar doesn't say "the world will end on 12-21-12".  12-21-12 is simply the last day of the calendar.  Kind of like our wall calendars all end on 12-31-12.  People just figured, "hey, the mayans took all this time to create such an elaborate calendar that when they finally stopped it must have been because the world was going to end". 

    maybe the mayans just got tired of calendar-ing...

    Two of my coworkers insist that there will be a zombie apocalypse. I insist they watch too much The Walking Dead.

     This. Plus, the calendar doesn't even actually end. The long count cycle "13 bak'tun" ends on Friday and coincides with the winter solstice. All of this "leap year" stuff is not true, though. Mayan calendars count in a totally different way than the gregorian calendar we use. The calendar doesn't say Dec. 21st, 2012, but the long count DOES end that day. It has been accurately aligned to our calendar system.

    Well, at least some anthropologists think it ends that day. Others claim to have evidence that the long count is really 17 bak'tun long. In either event, calendars that go beyond Friday have been found. And though a lot of Mayan knowledge was destroyed during the Spanish conquest, none of the surviving literature even hints at any doomsday type stuff.

    I live in Guatemala, where a lot of this stuff has been found. None of my neighbors seem to be nearly as worried as folks in the states are. And, yeah, lots of Mayans.

  • Yea I do remember when I first heard this about a few years ago and thought of my kids and hoped this would never happen.   I also remember how when 12/12/12 was approaching and how the news were saying this would be a lucky day and then 12/13/12 came and the horrible happened when those little children being killed in Conn.  You just never know what will happen in the future and we all must better try to live our lives better cos we do not know what tomorrow will bring.
