A lot of people live with the fear that our world will end in the year 2012. I find it funny though. Even if the world ends in 2012 somehow, I won’t have problem in dying when the whole world is dying. May be my personal view. :)

Well, the origin of this “end of the world thing” is funny too. They refer stuffs from ancient religious books to modern scientific conceptions. I like the way they explain the things in the way they want to.

I live in a country where there are many thousands of such people, who love to make prophecies on everything happening in the world.  Most of them know how to make people fool. I really admire their talent.

There have been hundreds of prophecies of the end of the world so far. But well, I am still here writing these lines on my computer, sitting in my room at the home. But this latest 2012 thing is the most popular among those. I have seen people who are really scared of it.  It would be funny to know that some people used to say that a planet called ”Plane X or Nibiru” would collide to the earth and everything would be ended… in 2003. The year 2003 came and passed, but  we were still alive. Now they say it will collide in 2012. (Hi! I time-traveled and I am in the year 2013 right now. The world still okay and some people are saying that the planet X will collide to the earth in the year 2020.)

This theory of Planet X/Nibiru came from mind of a women, who claims she can receive messages from people from other planet. And the people of that planet chose her to warn the mankind (man&woman-kind… I am not a sexist).

The base of the 2012 thing is the calender which belongs to the ‘Maya Civilization’. Mayan Civilization is well known for its arts, mathematics, astronomy and architecture. Mayan civilization was at its peak from 250 AD to 900 AD in Southern North America. (Some people believe that there were aliens who guided them. I am not talking about Steven Spielberg.)

According to the Mayan Calender, world have to come to its end  on 21st December, 2012. Well, I would not say that the Maya Calender says so. May be it’s the case of explaining the things in the way you want. An Mayan archaeologist ‘Jose Huchm’ states,

“If I went to some Mayan-speaking communities and asked people what is going to happen in 2012, they wouldn’t have any idea. That the world is going to end? They wouldn’t believe you. We have real concerns these days, like rain.”

Doesn’t this statement explain a lot?

Maya Calender

I observed that the duration of time span covered by the Mayan Calender ends on 21st December in 2012. And… and the starting-point is equivalent to August 11, 3114 BC. That means there was no world before the year 3114 BC?

World existed before 3114 BC so world will exist after 2012 AD, the Maya Calender is just not covering the time span beyond these years.  After 31st December, life continues with 1st of January of the new year… and the new calender.

Some people refer old religious scriptures. They talk about Doomsday of Islam, Judgement-day of Christianity etc. So what’s the point? Everything has to end one day, so will be happening with the world. But how do you know it will happen in the year 2012, Bible or Quran don’t tell about the year of 2012?? Experts totally reject the claims of mentioning of this date in the books.

If you are care of religious scriptures, then listen about the Hinduism too. According to Hinduism, the world runs in a cycle of ‘Yug’ or era. And we are living on the last era of the cycle, called ‘Kaliyug’. At the end of Kaliyug, the current world will end and new world will begin. But according to it, Kaliyug has total 432000 years and only 511o years have passed yet.

Some people are scientific and talk about NASA and magnetic fields of the Sun. NASA is scientific and they have an official website, so check out what they say about this 2012 thing:


So use you mind and stay happy! Just love the nature.
