I remember the Y2K threats. I worked in a nursing home and we had to prepare complete emergency plans "just in case." That must be part of why I couldn't get too excited about this prediction either. As of this post we have 4 hours and 10 minutes left before the day is over. I think I will sleep well and wake just fine tomorrow morning.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I don't think the world will end but it certainly has changed and not for the better. Maybe we are seeing the end but it has gradual.

Ha-ha! I don't remember the 2000 prediction! I remember one for 1999 and two for 2011, though .

21/12/12 - er, I mean 12/21/12 - is only 7 hours and 21 minutes old (for me), but I'm still here. According to some sources, the Mayan calendar was supposed to expire at 11:11 UTC, which, according to an online time zone converter, was an hour and 10 minutes ago. Other sources say the calendar expired years ago, due to changes in our calendar system over the years.

I put the doom and gloom attitude of 12-21-12 in the same category as I put hell. I don't believe in either one, so they don't bother me.

No I Don't....the bible is very clear that we have to preach the gospel to all the world and I don't believe we have done that yet...it also tells ua all the things that are going to happen leading up to the end of the world and I don't see that all ov them have come to pass yet....there is still much more to come....
I am already at the 21st and despite the day being overcast and dull I am fully expecting to see 2013 and beyond

No. I think a new Mayan prediction will start that day.

I don't believe it either.
Some people made millions selling underground houses or in the mountain rock houses.
It's so weird how I heard it everywhere a couple of months ago,but now that it's a day away,it's been overshadowed by Christmas.
I think it's all a media pitch.

Well, the poster who said something bad happens every day is sure right! Sadly ... but since archaeologists found a room in the ancient Mayan ruins with the NEXT calendar underway, it seems certain the Mayans never meant the WORLD would end - but I think the conquerors gave them smallpox and basically destroyed their culture, so they never finished the next calendar! In any case, I don't think the world will end Friday!

You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

For sure NOT. I think their calendar ended because they could not keep it up forever and this just happens to be the time. Think of the world of today, it is not the world of the past and in that way Yes, the world of that time ended. We are the people of the new world!!!! Just think of how much more our grandkids are the new world.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
