2012 Doomsday, coming soon.

2012 Doomsday, coming soon.

There is a somewhat wideheld belief that the end of the Mayan Calendar – December 21, 2012 – will be the end of the world as well. Sure, it could be just another “doomsday” prophesy tossed out there, but there are quite a few interesting coincidences.

First, December 21, 2012 is the winter solstice. It is well known that the Mayans were advanced mathematicians and astronmers, so this might not be quite so coincidental. It should also be noted that there is an eclipse of the sun scheduled for November of 2012 – while not matching up exactly, the timing of celestial events with the ending of the calendar can be considered interesting. Some scientists also believe that when the Mayan Calendar finishes, it will simply start again for its second cycle with no apocalyptic ending to the world.


So, if the world is going to end, how will it happen? The prevailing theory seems to have to do with the Earth’s magnetic fields. This basically states that either the Earth’s magnetic field will reverse all at once, or that the Earth will slowly stop spinning, sit “still” for a few days, then begin spinning the opposite direction. The result of reversing magnetic fields are very very bad – mass flooding and earthquakes kind of bad. This theory is supported by the sunspot cycles of the sun which seems to be heading for a climax around 2012.

It has been proposed that the Earth occassionally reverses magnetic fields – the last of which theorized as having occrred around 780,000 years ago. It’s a bit difficult to say this with any degree of accuracy however, and until we actually witness (if?) this, it is just a theory.

Perhaps more interesting is the apparent dates of other “doomsday” prophecies – most notably Revelations. The 7-year Apocalypse is apparently scheduled to happen starting December 21, 2008, and run to 2015. So you’ll want to clear your calendars for that. While the exact date of the Apocalypse is never explicitly given, this site/book is interesting in that it takes a scientific approach moreso than a strictly religious one. Naturally, Nostradamus weighs in, but he’s been predicting disaster for how many years now – and considering his predictions run until around A.D. 3797, I think it’s safe to say that he’s not banking on the world ending.

Yet another popular argument to support this end of the world scenario is to look at past advanced civilizations. The Mayans essentially disappeared, the Romans and Egyptians eventually fell, and did Atlantis really exist? We can certainly consider our current state of advancement to be at least on par with what our ancestors were, so are we due for a regression as they were?

In the end, there’s really no way to know about this until it happens – sure, you can build that bunker and stockpile it with canned goods, but you’ll probably just end up wasting a bunch of time and money. As a final note, you should take everything above with a boulder of salt.

NOTEThis site details quite of bit of the 2012 doomsday predictions – assuming your eyes don’t burst from it, if you’re interested in this it’s a great resource.

  1. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
    post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get
    the problem fixed soon. Thanks

    1. Thanks for your feedback. I’ll check it out today in Chrome and see if it can get fixed. Strange as I’ve used standard html, but you never know with newer browsers.

  4. live each day lyk its ur last….if we keep thinking abt wen we mite die den d fear of dying will stop us from living our life….

  5. According to the Bible the world has been created in six days,but according to the Science this process has taken billions of years.If we exclude the difference in time and we pay attention to the SEQUENCE,we will see that there is no contradiction between both,but only the question-why in the Bible things happened so fast?There is an answer and it`s in the Bible itself.Moses described the creation from his own sight as an eyewitness.Where and when he saw It and how could he have seen something happen before his existence?Answer:For forty days he has been at the mount Sinai where he got information about the past,present and future.The Creation had been REcreated to him there,he had seen how the already existing world had been made.The long process of evolution had been shown to him in the first six days and the SEVENTH day had been dedicated to human`s appearing.After that he had seen the difference between Adam`s origin and Eve`s one.Adam comes from the dirt in the process of evolution,but Eve comes from DNA material out his body,which marks another jump for the evolution or in other words-the missing section of the chain which Science is looking for.The Creation continue and The Next Jump Is Coming…

    1. lissette says :

So if thr is enough timei try to tell ppl about jesus. And wat he did for our sins.!

    2. EXACTLY!!! i mean seriously, why would it be earth? why not jupiter, mars, mercury or any other planet.
      this is all a load of rubbish.
      shame on the people who keep spreading fear across the whole world. 🙁

  7. All those earthquakes around the world are starting to freak some people out.

    First a major quake in Haiti, then Chile, Mexico and souther California, Indonesia, China. Even here in Adelaide, Australia we had a 5 second earthquake last Friday that lasted only 5 seconds but was felt across the city and suburbs of over 1 million people.

    It happened at 11:30 in the evening and sounded like a huge semitrailer or freight train was rumbling down my street at full speed. I was about to run out the front door to try to grab a registration number to report the driver, but then I realised it was an earthquake because the concrete slab of my house was shaking too much. Almost like quick waves. Nothing was damaged but it registerd 3.8 on the Richter Scale.

    Hopefully this isn’t a sign of things to come.

    Happy Anzac Day on the 25th to the Aussie readers. Enjoy the long weekend too.
