Come on. The universe is just carrying on as normal. It`s not all suddenly going to end just because some ancient uninformed race may or may not have predicted it so.
I`m not skeptical, I know the world`s not going to end in 2012.
I`ll say that it`s pointless to worry about it right now though. It`s best to just live your life as you normally would, rather than live in fear of what could(*probably won`t*) happen.
It`s ok...Dec 21 is my brother`s birthday. They were probably just predicting the massive birthday party he will no doubt be having in 2012... "
Can I come?! :D

Huh, I haven`t been keeping up apparently.
so like Dr. Who or Dr. Fate? awesome! I can`t wait to know all of time, hope my head doesn`t explode
Same retards, different story.
Except for the Ice Storm. That was just awesome. Aside from the Hypothermia and death.
Christians have had more end of days predictions than that. Half a dozen at least. The only one with any substance was "any time now" in 1347 and that was made *after* the catastophe started.
If you read more, you wouldn`t have needed to ask that question.
But I`ll answer it anyway, because I can spare the time.
The Mayan calendar doesn`t only go up to that year. References have been found carved into rock by ancient Mayans for dates more than 2000 years after 2012.
All calendars have cycles. The one we use has a cycle of one year. Others have different cycles, for example the Chinese calendar with a 12 year cycle. When one cycle ends, the next begins. Does anyone expect radical change or the end of the world on the first of January every year? The Mayans had several calendars, one of which has a cycle of over 5000 years. When the current cycle ends, the next cycle will begin. Just like the 1st of January every year.
Either way, I`m not going to work on Dec 21, 2012. If the world ends, ok. If the world doesn`t end? I`m not getting in the way of the looters and crazies.
and can we stop with the infographs please? (c`mon, i said please!)
And then when the "2012" nonsense dies down, someone is going to say the dinosaurs died on such and such day, which is a SURE sign that the world will end in 2020, on that same day. And on and on and on until the world actually DOES end
"End of the world" cults have allways been around and will continue to be around long after 2012 comes and goes!
humanity needs religion and random life ending threats in order to survive apparently...we are a paranoid society that believes the universe is out to get us. whats the next major scare after 2012 passes safely?
As for the whole 2012 fiasco, well, there is very little scientific proof to suggest anything extraordinary or catacalysmic will happen in 2012. Most of the theories have very little supporting evidence, and could be applied to most dates.
And the Mayans, well, even if they did predict the end of the world on that date, that doesn`t mean much. The end of the world has been predicted hundreds of times by loads of different civilisations. Christians predicted it would end some time in the 1800s and everyone believed it. Honestly, I think 2012 has just been blown out of proportion, the moment they discovered this "impending end", Hollywood, and the History Channel and the internet, and some desperate "scientists" just jumped on the bandwagon - the one thin
I also vaguely remember something about a planet X when I was in like 2nd grade, but in the following grades, it never happened to come up again. If it was something significant, I`m sure at least one of my teachers would have chatted about it during class.
Yes, he was kidding you. Reading comprehension fail.
Turbopuppy: Always correct, are you kidding me? He could have never been correct for all we know. His "predictions" are so vague they could mean anything. After all, people always "decode" them AFTER the "prediction" happened. Its all just whatever people want them to mean.
They finished fixing it months ago, in June if I recall correctly, and it was recooled by November. It`s been running ever since, but they`re taking several months doing testing followed by progressively more energetic collisions. They`ve already passed the previous record from other colliders. They`re just not yet up to the levels required to confirm the existence or lack thereof of the Higg`s boson. That`ll probably happen before the end of March.
The LHC hasn`t been used at full power yet. They`re still cautiously working up to it. Better to do it right than to do it quickly, because it`s rather expensive to repair.
But there`s no real indication that it`s dangerous, unless someone somehow managed to get inside it while it was on. That would be dangerous for them.
21/12/2012 is just like the hundreds of other religious end of days myths that have failed to be true throughout recorded history.
Come to think of it, it`s worse than them because they haven`t even got the religion right for 21/12/2012.
Even if the LHC was nothing but a Black Hole Making Machine, there would be no apocalypse.
They`re currently fixing it.
Believers: It will be ready again in 2012. Skeptics: I guess we`re screwed, the Mayans clearly predicted the LHC failure by watching planets and poo.
Islam pretty much just says it`ll be a Friday, but no specific year. Basically a 1/7 shot of being right.
For all the 2012 believers out there... Hey check it out, 21/12/12 is a Friday....
Skeptics:(But not the 10th of Muharram which some people claim is necessary).
The planets do not align every year. They are rarely even all in the same 90 degree arc.
The next one we can qualify for isn`t until 2014, so I think u can all stop worrying :)
There`s your proof this is all bung. Can we move on now?
No, it doesn`t. One part says that a SUDDEN change is impossible. The other part says that a geologically rapid change would take 5000 years. 5000 years is not equivalent to a sudden change.
"Maybe. But Quetzalcoatl is Mexican Aztec, not pre-Columbian Mayan."
That one had me rofl big time.
Starcraft 2 will finally come out.
Every male human being in America will quit their jobs to play it. Thus, the military, utility workers, doctors, etc. will all quit to play SC2. The terrorists will use this as an opportune time to attack. Korea won`t get enough copies of game, and will invade the US as well to steal copies. WW3 starts and, and nuclear armageddon kills everyone by Dec. 21st.
I often wonder if the Y2K panic saved us all. I mean, the people who were panicking forced banks and governments and companies to step up their Y2K preparedness. Not that it would have been the end of the world, but I wonder if there was no panic if we would have seen some problems instead of none.
This is the same retarded pseudoscience from the people who thought the LHC would tear the Earth apart with a black hole. It`s embarrassing.
