The idea that the world is supposed to end in the year 2012 was taken from the ancient Maya calendar system. The Maya had a very complex way to keep track of time, which included what is called the Calendar round system, which is built kind of like a speedometer. As days continue to pass, this calendar system gets closer and closer to going back to all 0's, like your car's speedometer might do eventually. However, the connection of this date with an apocalypse of some sort is an invention of modern non-Mayan people, the Maya themselves never connected this date with any horrible event. In fact, they more likely would have marked the end of this calendar cycle with a huge celebration!

I know you won't like this answer......but..........don't give a moments thought to something you have no control over. If that doesn't help. How about this. Statistics have shown that 86% of all that any of us worry about doesn't come to fruition. Find some passion and then volunteer with a company that supports your passion and I guarantee you will not "Worry so much"

In 2012 the miyan calendar ended but there is also another theory that another planet half the size of the moon will hit earth. I personally think that if the moon is in earth's orbit that when the planet comes and tries to hit earth that it will get sucked into our orbit too. I think there is nothing to be worried about.
