Don’t know whether its true or not, but just thout of sharing it to you. 7 reasons the world will end in 2012.
Scientific experts from around the world are genuinely predicting that five years from now, all life on Earth could well finish. Some are saying it’ll be humans that set it off. Others believe that a natural phenomenon will be the cause. And the religious folks are saying it’ll be God himself who presses the stop button…
1. Mayan Calendar
The first mob to predict 2012 as the end of the world were the Mayans, a bloodthirsty race that were good at two things:
Building highly accurate astrological equipment out of stone and
Thousands of years ago they managed to calculate the length of the lunar moon as 329.53020 days, only 34 seconds out. The Mayan calendar predicts that the Earth will end on December 21, 2012. Given that they were pretty close to the mark with the lunar cycle, it’s likely they’ve got the end of the world right as well.
2. Sun Storms
Solar experts from around the world monitoring the sun have made a startling discovery: our sun is in a bit of strife. The energy output of the sun is, like most things in nature, cyclic, and it’s supposed to be in the middle of a period of relative stability. However, recent solar storms have been bombarding the Earth with so much radiation energy, it’s been knocking out power grids and destroying satellites. This activity is predicted to get worse, and calculations suggest it’ll reach its deadly peak sometime in 2012.
3. The Atom Smasher
Scientists in Europe have been building the world’s largest particle accelerator. Basically its a 27km tunnel designed to smash atoms together to find out what makes the Universe tick. However, the mega-gadget has caused serious concern, with some scientists suggesting that it’s probably even a bad idea to turn it on in the first place. They’re predicting all manner of deadly results, including mini black holes. So when this machine is fired up for its first serious experiment in 2012, the world could be crushed into a super-dense blob the size of a basketball.
4. The Bible says…
If having scientists warning us about the end of the world isn’t bad enough, religious folks are getting in on the act as well. Interpretations of the Christian Bible reveal that the date for Armageddon, the final battle between Good an Evil, has been set down for 2012. The I Ching, also known as the Chinese book of Changes, says the same thing, as do various sections of the Hindu teachings.
5. Super Volcano
Yellowstone National Park in the United States is famous for its thermal springs and Old Faithful geyser. The reason for this is simple – it’s sitting on top of the world’s biggest volcano, and geological experts are beginning to get nervous sweats. The Yellowstone volcano has a pattern of erupting every 650,000 years or so, and we’re many years overdue for an explosion that will fill the atmosphere with ash, blocking the sun and plunging the Earth into a frozen winter that could last up to 15,000 years. The pressure under the Yellowstone is building steadily, and geologists have set 2012 as a likely date for the big bang.
6. The Physicists
This one’s case of bog-simple maths mathematics. Physicists at Berekely Uni have been crunching the numbers. and they’ve determined that the Earth is well overdue for a major catastrophic event. Even worse, they’re claiming their calculations prove, that we’re all going to die, very soon – while also saying their prediction comes with a certainty of 99 percent- and 2012 just happens to be the best guess as to when it occurs.
7. Slip-Slop-Slap- BANG!
We all know the Earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that shields us from most of the sun’s radiation. What you might not know is that the magnetic poles we call north and south have a nasty habit of swapping places every 750,000 years or so – and right now we’re about 30,000 years overdue. Scientists have noted that the poles are drifting apart roughly 20-30kms each year, much faster than ever before, which points to a pole-shift being right around the corner. While the pole shift is underway, the magnetic field is disrupted and will eventually disappear, sometimes for up to 100 years. The result is enough UV outdoors to crisp your skin in seconds, killing everything it touches.
I am a firm believer in 2012. Our ancient ancestors have warned us for thousands of years about this date and we are soon to experience this for ourselves.
Where the heck does the I Ching say anything about this?
With the world in the state it is I’ve been worrying about leaving my children and grandchildren to face the consequences of our greed and violence toweards others. To tell you the truth, I would be glad if the world ended in 3 years. Human beings don’t deserve the beautiful world they were given.
very general statements …
The whole 2012 thing is a load of BS. The world will not end in 2012 because the Mayan calender ends, because you know what they did when one calender ended? They started another one!
The religious people are just crazy. Their were a bunch of them saying the world would end in 2007, but they were WRONG!
As for the LHC, statistically their is more chance of you spontaneously combusting when frying an egg (10^-11%)then the world being destroyed by the LHC (10^-19%).
As for the Super Volcano, The Magnetic Field Disruption and the Solar Flares, just because it’s way overdue doesn’t mean its gonna happen. And if it does, don’t underestimated mankind’s ingenuity in a time of strife.
I agree that the Mayan calendar connection does sound hokey, but consider the accuracy with which they were able to predict other astronomical events, and it starts to become believable. Also, consider that mankind is probably a lot older than the history books lead you to believe, and a lot of their knowledge, ditto the Sumerians and Egyptians, came from eons ago. Fact is, the further you go back in time, the more mankind knew about the stars and in a lot of ways technology too. That doesn’t make sense if man had just learned to build straw huts does it!
I’m not going to go into detail about how wrong it is to claim things in the vein of “The Mayans predicted the end of the world, just look at their calendar system!”; just read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_doomsday_prediction#Mesoamerican_Long_Count_calendar.
Although it’s indeed true that the Sun will be approaching the peak of its 11-year cycle (called a solar maximum) in 2012, this does not automatically imply there’s any cause for concern; to learn why the short answer to “Can our sun produce a killer flare?” is a firm “No.”, read the article at http://www.universetoday.com/2008/06/21/2012-no-killer-solar-flare/.
And the Large Hadron Collider? It’s safe; every *respectable* physicist (I’m not referring to crackpot “scientists”) knows that the LHC is not capable of producing earth-devouring black holes due to their understanding of the standard model of particle physics as well as their understanding of the energy levels at which the LHC operates. Besides, the “first serious experiments” are not scheduled for 2012, as you state; The LHC’s design energy is 14 TeV, which is scheduled for 2011 and experiments at 10 TeV (which should be enough to detect the Higgs particle, among other things) are scheduled for 2010. But again, read for yourself if you’re still concerned about its safety: http://public.web.cern.ch/public/en/LHC/Safety-en.html.
“The bible says…” – The bible is an internally inconsistent collection of fairy tales and the only way to establish the truth of its content is by circular reasoning: 1) “The bible is true because it’s the word of god.” and 2) “It’s the word of god because this is stated in the bible.” Although 1 could follow from 2, 2 can only be regarded as true if one simply assumes that the bible is true in the first place; however, this is exactly what we are still trying to prove. I’m therefor going to disregard all scripture “arguments”.
Ah, the (super)volcano at Yellowstone. Yes, if the periodic nature of eruption of this volcano is indeed stable, an eruption might occur “anytime soon”. However, since it erupted approximately 0.6, 1.2, and 2.2 million years ago, the next eruption might just as well be 400.000 years away; so much for “soon” (on a human timescale). Furthermore, although such an eruption will undoubtedly have a great impact on life on earth, this will not automatically cause “the end of the world” (or the end of life, for that matter); this didn’t happen during the last three eruptions, so there’s absolutely no reason to assume that something like this *will* happen during the next one (whenever that will be).
And about “things being overdue” (points 5 and 6): if you knew anything about statistics, you would know that the chance of something happening in the case of independent trials (such as global disasters) does not depend on previous trials; there is no “memory mechanism” that tells reality that “something is overdue”; Just read up on the Gambler’s Fallacy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gambler%27s_fallacy.
As far as the reversal of the earth’s magnetic field is concerned: this does not happen “every 750,000 years or so”; just take a look at the following diagram showing periods of normal and reversed magnetic fields: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e3/Lowrie.gif. Pretty erratic periods, aren’t they? So we are not “overdue” for a reversal (by the way, there you go again with things being “overdue”; see the comment above). Besides, from the diagram and the information at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomagnetic_reversal#Effects_on_biosphere_and_human_society it’s quite easy to see that our ancestors survived many previous reversals; there is indeed no uncontested evidence that a magnetic field reversal has ever caused any biological extinctions.
Just enjoy the upcoming “2012” movie as entertaining Hollywood stuff, nothing more.
@Jim: if the world doesn’t end in 2012 (as a rational human being, I’m fairly sure that it won’t, but I’m going to humor you), would you (and all the other doomsday proponents) be so kind to remove yourself from the gene pool instead after it has become clear that you have been screaming for no reason at all during the last couple of years? Thank you.
@Suezeekay: it’s actually the case that people with an attitude like yours “don’t deserve the beautiful world they were given” (I’m going to ignore the fact that the world was not – as you state – “given” to us by anyone/anything).
2012 is the new Y2k..
I can’t even begin to understand how physicists could possibly “crunch the numbers” to show that doomsday is upon us. And if we believe this, then why don’t we believe the physicists when they say that the LHC will not destroy the universe?
And if the Mayans could predict things with such accuracy, why didn’t they predict the downfall of their own civilization? Seems like a waste.
Honestly, though, there’s not really a point to argue with doomsday believers. They have firm beliefs that the entire scientific community is somehow in on this secret. They refuse to listen to reason, and will pick and choose what they believe.
And lastly: Remember when the Y2K was supposed to destroy the world? Yeah.
Whoever believes this load of crap are a bunch of idiots. We are disgracing God if we are to believe that the world will end in 2012. It specifically says in the Bible that judgment day will come like a thief in the night. NOBODY WILL EXPECT IT!!!!!!!! Shoot the world could end tomorrow. That’s why we should stand guard at all times. Live out our life every single day to the best we can.
The world will end on June 3rd 50000000196 CE when the bloating atmosphere of our dying sun swallows our planet.
The Human attempts to save the planet will fail because the conservative politicians of the day will consider the Government run plan to “Save the Planet” a socialist endeavor and the Liberals will block the “Supply Sider” plan because it consists of only carving off the “economically viable” parts of the planet and leaving the economically disadvantaged areas behind to toast.
I am hindu & I have gone throught our major religious book like
a) Bhagvad Gita
f) vishnu puran
g) Satapatha Brahmana
h) Yoga Sutras – Patanjali
Where the hack it is mentioned in “hinduism”. I didn’t find it in any of these books. Can you please tell me the book where you read this? I would like to go through it.
It’s time for a spiritual revolution. (And I don’t mean religious…) The way we are living on the planet is surely going to cause a serious backlash. We are a part of the cosmos not disconnected from it. There is momentum building and we have a choice as to how things unfold. 2012 will offer an opportunity to connect with our spiritual heritage and take an evolutionary leap in consciousness. Those who don’t make this shift very well may find themselves in a doomsday scenario. Those who are willing to make the shift will find themselves living in a very different reality. It’s already happening for those in the know. Heaven is here now. Because we are creating it. 2012… is a moment of choice.
i like to eat cheese
people4 who belive in thise ae obese terds
this is all true. so true. the truest thing I’ve ever read on the web. now be afraid, be very afraid! mwaahahahaha. you know what, if you die, you’re not even gonna know it.
I recently started out setting up my own solar panels – I utilized some video guides I discovered and it’s working out wonderful!
Actually, the Mayan calendar doesn’t end its full cycle until October, 4772. And I have NEVER heard a REAL scientist say anything about the world ending in 2012, except that there isn’t any factual evidence for it. I have heard modern Mayans saying over and over that their calendar predicts no such thing, though.
all of you people are brainwashed by the United States government you've all been deceived watch "loose change"the world may end we don't know the government keeps 90 percent of their information from us blame the Uited States government!
This shit cray.
