    Well, someone was going to, so it may as well be me.

    So what does everyone think?

    I think its horseshit.

    I mean, is it Dec 21 Mayan time? Or did they foresee UTC?

    What time? Surely if they could pick a date that far off, surely a time was manageable?

    Well, my calendar ends on Dec 31, so I'm only really losing 10 days :D

    I can see some Casinos who Generally are predatory in stalling WD's .. stalling until the 21st so they DON'T have to pay... ;)

    I think its a load of crap, however those who have cash sitting in casino accounts should withdraw as soon as possible - You only have a few days left to spend it..:D

    The problem is there's no actual reason for it to end. All of the predictions have no basis of fact or truth. It did sell lots of books and get lots of hits on websites but that's really all these conspiracy theories are for in the first place.

    Every bit of gravity in our solar system is present and accounted for so there's no stray planet creeping up on us or hiding behind the sun.
    The planets won't align themselves any differently than they do every year.
    There is no "edge" of the galaxy for the planets to align themselves with.

    These predictions are all thanks to the ancient Mayan Calendar which some people seem to think ends on Dec 21st 2012.

    The Mayan had kind of a weird calendar which I don't fully understand. (Not that I've spent much time trying.)
    Apparently the long count calendar was used to measure long periods of time and used a base 20 system instead of the base 10 that we use for decimal places.

    The first number still counts as 1. So with a base 10 the number 1 would equal 1 and 1.1 would equal 11 and 1.1.1 would equal 111 but with a base 20 the number 1 would equal 1 and 1.1 would equal 21 and 1.1.1 would equal 221. The third number resets when it hits 18 instead of 20 and then it got confusing so I no longer cared. :p

    There was another calendar that measured shorter periods of time.

    What I do know is the calendar had to have a starting point which was probably some mythical date of creation. Then the days were counted from there. So right off the top, if the start of the calendar doesn't have much meaning, the end of the calendar doesn't either.

    On top of that the calendar doesn't actually end on Dec 21 2012. The calendar has about 8 or 9 NAMED holding places - 0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1
    You don't actually use all the zeros if you don't need them and the calendar ended at 13.0.0.0.0 which was apparently supposed to be the end of the world. Except each one of these place holders has a name. Just like we have names (Day, Month, Year, Century.) The names go far past the 5th place holder. Even though the calendar ends at 13.0.0.0.0 the place holders after that have names. In fact that 5th place holder doesn't even roll over until it hits 20 and then the 6th place holder is used which also has a name.

    Many Mayan inscriptions predict events with dates far beyond that 13th place holder. One calendar found at You must register/login in order to see the link. stretched 7000 years into the future.

    Just because one particular calendar found ended on Dec 21st 2012 doesn't mean the world ends with it. We use short calendars and replace them every year. They end and the world doesn't end with them.

    IF the world were to end (and I don't believe it will), there's nothing we can do about it, so no point in stressing over it.

    If nothing happens on December 21st then perhaps Black Christmas will happen on December 25th with the next 9-11 event in Phoenix Arizona according to the book The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 9/11 as Mass Ritual, by S. K. Bain.

    Mmmmm, world ends by a mysterious unseen planet floating around in the netherworld, hitting us, i`m gonna stick my neck out and say no, it won`t end. The Mayans were so good at predicting the future they completely neglected to see the Spanish coming (how did that turn out for them?), and besides......................................

    The problem is they're believing it because someone told them stories with no basis of truth. The average person has never seen a Mayan Calendar much less understands one but because someone wanted to sell some books or make a documentary or get some hits on a website and claimed the calendar predicts something people just assume it's fact.

    The particular calendar in question ends. That's all. It doesn't say the world ends with it. It's like skimming ahead to the end of the calendar on your desk or wall, seeing there's nothing after 2012 and assuming there's literally no more days after that.

    The world will only come to an end (IMO) when the sun burns out and by then we'll be long gone, exploring the (Startrek) universe.:D - where there is no money and no more gambling:eek:
