I was talking with my brother yesterday. We were discussing the end of the world that is suppose to be happening on 12/21/12. From yesterday, that gives everyone 2 weeks to live. Something about the planets aligning just so, I didn't want to know.

Anyway, I guess my BIL is a firm believer in this and wants to have Christmas on the 15th. Christmas dinner is always at their house but Christmas Eve is at my brother Mike's house. Now Mike scoffs at this. We were discussing it last year on Christmas Eve and he said no nonsense talk in his house. My niece is going to a party that night. So obviously Dusty is the lone believer. Me, hey if it happens, it happens. We won't know the difference.

One thing is for sure, if it does happen, we won't know and you can't say I told you so because we are all dead. If it doesn't happen, I can say I told you so. Wasn't the world suppose to end last year in October or something according to some guy in CA?

What do you think about this? Is something disasterous going to happen, maybe not the end, but catastrophic? Nostradamus did write about something, but I got so scared, I changed the channel. It is the end of the Myan calendar. Leave your thoughts about this.

    Not a believer! However life is too short so we need to live each moment as our last.

P.S. I work with a guy that believes the world will end Dec 21st. He is terrified!!

    No one know when the earth will end, only our Heavenly Father. When you stop to think, you don't know how along you will live. Life has no guarantees. Live one day at a time. Live it the best you can.

    Good topic! I believe that no one truly knows the day or the to me December 21st is just another day until further notice...

It's interesting to hear that some people are thinking of having holiday celebrations planned before the 21st just in case.... Now that you mention it, I am also going to a gathering on December 15. I wonder if that is why this person chose to have it that day!

    Hi Bonnie,

I truly don't believe any of this. I don't know what your beliefs are and I know most people steer clear of any religious matters, but I am a Christian. A true believer, not someone who goes to church all of the time, but rather someone that has God/Christ inside of me and I can assure you 100% that the world will not end on the 21st of this month. Like Debra, I believe in the writings of the Bible and if we follow it through to Revelations, there have to be so much more things that need to take place before the end of the world.

(Just a side note, if the world ends on the 21st, why even worry about having Christmas this year? What difference would it make?) Just have a nice family dinner on the 15th as a pre-Christmas dinner or a "Just in Case the World Ends" Dinner.

With so many things that we need to take care of, problems, health and family, why put yourself through any added worrying. Hope I have given you some assurance. I personally am not worried in the least.

On another note,we should live each day as if it were our last day because then we would treat and speak well of everyone, show genuine love to our families, and live each day to the fullest. This way we would never have to worry about the world ending because we would have done everything right until the end!

    I think we are seeing the end of the world we have known in our lifetime. The minority keeps want to boot God out of our schools, government, etc. My heart aches for the future generations, because I don't think their world will be as good as ours was. But the prediction is just a prediction.

    I think there are always going to be people "predicting" the end of the world and although with the way we treat this planet I believe eventually earth will be destroyed in a matter of speaking, I don't believe the fact that some calendar ends on the 21st of Dec. this year means the end of the world. I think we'll all be waking up on the 22nd and not even thinking about the fact that the world is still functioning, that is until Fox news has their big headline "World Didn't End! What Happened?" LOL

Thanks for opening up this discussion, always fun to look at some of the things others are thinking about.

    As a professional earth scientist, I will not dignify this thread with original commentary at all except to wish all here Happy Holidays.

That said, Bonnie you have friends far wiser and more learned than myself. I will quote a few:

Adarkara: "I think it is a load of crap."

CBrinkley 401: "Totally false."

You get the idea. As I said, Happy Holidays. There is far more to fear from the fiscal cliff than from this.

    Totally false. Even the Mayans say so. Has nothing to do with predicting the end of the world. This is the end of ONE calendar. Don't forget, the calendars we have in our homes all end on Dec 31st! Then we just get a new calendar. It is the same with the Mayan calendar.
Ignore Nostradamus as well. His predictions were so vague that they shouldn't even be paid attention to. You could take one and easily apply it to several different things, because they aren't specific, like naming places, times, details. Like predicting that there is going to be a war somewhere in the next 10 years. If you look through history, there have ALWAYS been wars going on somewhere in the world, so it doesn't make ME a seer.

    Nostradamus and the Mayan seer, and anyone else who made predictions like those were always in some position of power, elevated there by other powerful people. Do some predictions come true? Sure. But generally, predictions about "the end of the world" are made in order to control people. I don't put a lot of stock in them. I figure that the human race will get in it's own way too many times to get itself out of whatever predictament it's gotten itself into, and life as we know it will change, and who knows? It might be for the better.

    I think it is a load of crap. The Maya couldn't predict their own demise and never invented the wheel, how could they have predicted our demise? Their 'long count' calendar is meant to repeat when it ends. It's a cycle. Not an end.

And those people that say 'But the moon, sun and the center of the galaxy will all align perfectly on December 21st, 2012!!!" fail to add that it happens EVERY YEAR on December 21st.

However, I always tell people, "If it happens, I'll be the first person to admit that I was wrong."

The best part? If I'm wrong we're all dead and no one will care if I'm wrong!

    I think the Mayans just figured they had gone as far out as their minds could imagine. According to the Bible we are starting to see end time prophesies fulfilled. But the important ones have not happened but maybe one of them will on 12/21. If it does, I'm out of here!!!

I think people can spend a lot of time and energy worrying about things that will never happen.

I think it is great that your brother wants to spend time with family, just in case. Enjoy your holidays. Next year you will have something to look back on.

You also might want to read the Bible to see what God says about the end times!

Blessings, DEBRA

    I don't think it's when the Mayan calendar HAD to end; I think it's just when it sorta did. It didn't mean the Mayans had some insight into the end of the world; I think they just got tired of writing numbers down.

This from the NASA website: "Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then -- just as your calendar begins again on January 1 -- another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar."
