I hate how people spread the misconception that the world is supposed to end in 2012. If you actually took the time to read a little on the matter, it's supposed to be a shift in the human conciousness that happens on December 21, 2012. If people can believe Armageddon is going to happen, I don't know why this can seem so ridiculous. Some people think the "global conciousness shift" is the doubling of information happening so rapidly that it expands into infinity. Look up the doubling of information on Google for further understanding. I'm not that great at explaining it, but it has to do with us moving into the age of technology.

I am from the future and yes, the world has come to an end...prostitution is no longer legal in Las Vegas.

Still doesn't make any sense. Why should the Mayans be able to predict the coming of the technological singularity?

Oh, and btw, the tech singularity requires the invention of AIs smart enough to develop smarter AIs. That's when the singularity begins, when technological advancement is no longer dependent on human innovation. Until then, it's not going to happen. Because if anyone has ever played any video game with an AI... well, I shouldn't have to explain to you how far off we are from that.

I'm not reading any of the past post but I just want to say is that I don't believe in 2012... as well with the stupid 06/06/06 nonsense of the day of the devil. People keep telling me it's going to end 11:11...i'm not slapping science but this is my question... which time zone are we going to be following!? Japan is pretty much a day ahead of us ( speaking from the Mid West side of the United States ) and that for the people who are living in the east coast of the US is screaming it's 11:11 AM/PM... here in other parts of the world will follow their clock for 11:11

I'm sure whacky things will happen 2012 ( like every other year ) but it's not going to be the end of the world and when that day is over I'm going to laugh at the believers :p

There has been many theories on when the world shall end. And none of them rang true. Also the prediction is ambiguous ; it can be interpreted differently amongst every individual. In a positive or a negative light.

2012 is merely the next Y2K. 2000 was supposed to be the end, wasn't it? I guess to fight the recession, they invented 2012, a new "end of the world", so people will prepare by stockpiling and buying everything they need and desire.

Maybe I'll actually read through this thread and see what other people think.

Speaking of Y2K, I read that it supposedly did happen to some computers. However, some people managed to get whatever software/hardware it was that they needed to prevent it from happening, but the whole mass-hysteria-deal was the "big deal" about it.

God, I will never understand people...taking things the wrong way. Then it just goes downhill from there--like the domino/snowball factor.

My belief is that if the world's going to end, there isn't a darn thing I can do about it. I might as well just live life until then like it isn't going to happen, because I really don't believe it will, and if it does, I'll just die with everyone else anyway. When there's something large-scale like that, there's nothing that I can do about it, so why worry?

the only reason its 2012 is because they ran out of room on the rock

my friend said it was that and the year the mayans die out.
