Does anyone really believe 2012-11-26 00:25:57 Reply

Does anyone really believe that the world is going to end this December? I mean, I find it a little strange that a couple of years ago it was such a popular subject, and now that it's drawing near nobody seems to want to bring it up.

Anyone else think about this?

It's been debunked and the people who brought it up were mostly the ones who made money off of scaring people.

Like people said it's been debunked. It was an interesting thought though.

I remember the morning I woke up thinking the world was ending. It'd been a hot night so my window was wide open in my room and I awoke to what sounded to me in my drowsy state to be a bomb plummeting to the land. I jumped out of bed in blind panic and looked around madly as my heartbeat quickened and imagining that this was the end while the sound grew louder and louder, then it got quieter and quieter. It had been a low, really low flying helicopter. I assume tracking some criminal but my god it really shook me up.

I know what you mean OP. Despite December 21st being so close it seems like if anything people are talking about it less.

Probably for the best actually since its kind of stupid and I highly highly doubt anything is going to happen.

Maybe the government doesn't want people to riot because of the supposed end of the world so they are using their manipulator rays to stop people from talking about it.

People get scared and paranoid when you bring up death and ENd times shit, but the world will end one day of course; but only God knows when; so for now I just chill and roll with the flow of things as they gradually come into existance

No.

But Isaac Newton predicted 2060 was the end. I find his prediction much more reliable than a hollywood-fabricated hoax

I don't think the Mayans ever even claimed that 2012 meant the end of the world.

Even if they did, who cares? They're all dead anyway.

The Mayans lost all credibility when their civilization got wiped out by the Spaniards.

I thought the movie was based on the Maya calendar shit.

Only in the same way movies like Texas Chainsaw Massacre are "based on true events"....in that they aren't..

Everyone freaked out at first, but once more people started talking about how stupid the idea was, the voices of crazy people got drowned out, and they all either stopped talking or just can't be heard among the midst of people not caring.

And just how many scientists back this theory up?
