People need to get off that. One phase of the Mayan calendar ends in Dec of this year. What all those idiots who keep saying it is the end of the world have failed to do, is to keep reading. There is a new phase starting that ends around 4076.
It's sorta like when you calendar expires for the year... except this time some of your nuclear family members think the world will end. doom sayers are battin 0. There is no hope of respite. They will continue to be slaves distracted by the end of the world speech until they die then teach the same values to their kids. It's a loop that we've been stuck on since the bible and an effective model of overseership. So much so that not even publicly stating that it's all a hoax would reverse it. Even if it did no one would change til that point. You may as well have heard the world will never end. The way to find out is to live long enough to know I think.
The Mayan Calender is like a circle, and it started at a certain year obviously when the mayans were around and the circle completes one loop on december 21 2012. I also heard 2 contradictions to that, one, that when the calender was created, the mayans did not account for leap year and the end of the world was supposed to be like a couple years ago, i also heard that many mayan descendants that are living near the calender will say that they dont believe it themselves.
The day of resurrection has minor signs and major signs , one of the minor signs is that the Arabian Island ( Saudi Arabia , Yemen , Emirates , etc ) will be green and full of rivers as it used to be ( thousands or million years ago ) , scientists say this might happen after a big change in the climate , maybe after the world flood , after the Ice melts , so that might take tens of years .
It's just a scare tactic. The apologetics have been purporting this lie since the last 2000 years, started by Jesus himself. Paul went a step ahead & said, that the doomsday was so close that even his generation were not to pass! But, alas! Here we are still! Happily ignore such infamy.
Some silly people think the world will end in Dec because the ancient Mayan calander comes to an end then. Like thats a really reasonable reason. In fact no one knows when the earth will end and anyone who says they know for a fact a specific date is a liar. The world will end one day and its getting closer but that could mean another year or ten years or fifty or a hundred. No One Knows
In accordance to Christian belief, no one knows the day or the hour except God. The mayan calendar thing seems to me to be what most people have spoken already. I don't worry or become concerned with it myself and put no confidence in any of things said concerning the Mayan thing. On the other hand, and not to be meant as a doomsday, as in a day without hope, is the Christian belief that Jesus is returning one day and will take His Bride (the True Church) home. That I do believe, so in considering that, I also put no bearing on the date of December, but do believe that there will be signs of the times in that day (day meaning area of time relating to, and not just a 24 hr. period of time). And, in that time, people will be saying things like we have been hearing this for years and it hasn't happened yet! But, I do believe we are seeing those signs in various ways. And, it would mean the end of the world as we know it now. But, it is not meant to be a doomsday message. True enough things will take place, but there is also a message of hope in the midst of the storm as well. I wanted to mention that part as well, in answering this,
On December 21st, 2012, earth, the Sun, and the center of the Milky Way Galaxy come into perfect alignment. Just as they have done every single year since earth formed. Well, since it settled into its current orbit, I guess.
