I really can't determine which I should believe; science or the government and affiliates.

no science does not indicate anything will happen on that day, the mayan calendar they looked at is still not complete the piece they had shows that date as the last day on earth, but all of the mayan descendants that they have talked to deny that date as anything important. You also have to keep in mind that they predicted the same thing would mappen back in may of 2003 because they read the calendar wrong, and after nothing happened they changed the date to 2012. If something does happen it would be minimal to the point where u barely notice it.

It's a selective doomsday. Only the ones who believe in it will die.

Specifically: the sun will rise, the sun will set, some places will have snow, others rain, other regions will be warm and sunny. There is a possibility of earthquake, volcanic eruption, flooding and other such disasters in specific locales. The evening will be dark with increasing light toward dawn.

if the mayans lived about 200 years ago how would they know when the world was going to end? maybe they were just to lazy to actualy finish their calender or they decided that they were smarter than everybody else who predicted the world was going to end and chose a date at random, who knows?

Do you really believe anything our political leaders say?

The Mayan calendar is actually cyclical. The world doesn't end, the calendar just starts over. At least that's what some physicist or another said on the tube.

It would be kind of cool if somebody finally got Doomsday right. I mean imagine everyone sitting around saying I told you so then WHAM! End of the freaking world. I wish it was the 26th so I could at least find out what I got for Christmas.

I think some people enjoy either scaring or trying to scare other people w/ this stuff...remember Y2K? End of the world in 2000? And the people in Europe in 1000 AD thought THAT would be the end of the world....sometime in the 1800's a preacher of a doomday type had hundreds of people giving away all their worldly possessions because the end of the world was coming...they waited, and waited...and...

So, as to people who "think" maybe a portion of a broken Mayan calendar indicates "something" in 2012....ok, I'll believe it when I see it, meanwhile I'm neither hoarding stuff nor giving all my worldly goods away!

As the director of the movie said when asked if it was based on a real prediction, "It's just a movie!" (with damned good special effects.) If this is the Rapture, I'll be happy to help you unload your valuables, loved pets, etc. They'll be well cared for. Oh, but wait! Why would the Christian God base the end of the world on a pagan, non-Christian calendar!??

Will it really matter? If the world does end, you aren't going to be around after, so who cares. Just live your life and let whatever is going to happen, happen.

I remember as a child, maybe 6 years old, my dad saying the end would be December 21st, 2012, because that was when the Mayan calendar ended. I promise you, I was no where NEAR the age of 6 in 2003! quoting D. Bailey------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OH ok, your DAD told you when you were six yrs old..and here we are??? WHAT! Your dad read Mayan really well? Or was a Ph.D in Mayan culture, or.....?

Uh, I think you (and the guy who said it was predicted back in 2003 and they changed it) are missing the point. It has been known for a very long time what the Mayan calander was. I learned in junior high school, and that was over 20 yeras ago. The point is that NOBODY who knows anything of the Mayan culture ever thought "the end of the world" would happen in 2003. And they didn't "change" it. And they're not going to "change it" after 2012.

From the time it was discovered, the great cycle of the Mayan calendar was understood to end on 12/21/2012. And that's all that has been expected to end, by ANYONE who has looked at the situation scientifically. The largest cycle of the calendar. Anyone who is promoting otherwise is purely a panic-monger.

I get so irritated at the line from the movie that says, "The Mayans predicted the end of time...". Absurd. And they were NOT lazy simply because they didn't write out the next great cycle of their calendar. Can you buy a calendar for the year 3328 right now?

It's not broken. There's not a piece missing. It hasn't changed. It doesn't predict the end of time. It's merely an interesting insight into the intelligence of the Mayans.

Think about all the cool stuff you could buy during Black Friday 2012, since you won't have to worry about ever paying for any of it. The downside is you get less than a month to use it.
