It gives folks something to talk about when the topic of the weather's been covered. The end of the world has been predicted countless times, Jehovah witness folks have predicated it a # of times, the lunatic fringe, Jones, Heavens Gate, tried to hop on the mother ship early-at least their sneakers were clean. What's going to happen is probably the same thing as today, the economy's in the crapper, folks are unemployed, Obama put us another trillion in debt. Tree huggers will hug, warriors will war, sun goes up, sun goes down. The ? is do you believe, if so get an early start, deed me any assets you have, get rid of it all--you won't need it
These are just predictions are alleged to be prophecies by so-called "Ancient Mayans". However, the reliability of those claims deserves rational attention. The movie 2012 also tried to show how the world ends in 2012. In other words, there is no likelihood of the world ending in 2012 as no one really knows when the world will end.
I would not worry about it. If the world does end it will be so fast you will not know it. :) ... I don't think anything is going to happen. If something does it wont be much and it will be in the news paper the next day. So, no different than any other day of the year.
It's just another day. The end of the world will come "as a thief in the night" only God knows. Noone will know what hit them when it happens the TRUEST form of Shock & Awe. True believers & Gods saved children will rejoice and the Non-believers well... that's another story.
