Will The World End In 2012?

21st December 2012.

That is the day many predicted to be the end of the world.

Is it true? If it is, we only have roughly another 3 years and 9 months left!

Normally, I won’t even bother about such predictions. I mean, we have been through that before, haven’t we? Remember the hype that was created when we were last approaching the year 2000?

In the past, so called prophets and psychics had predicted about the end of the world so many times but each time, it did not come to pass. Will it be any different this time?

Well, let us look at some of the evidences that support the 2012 doomsday prediction.

First, there’s the Mayan calendar that seems to end on the 21st December 2012. The Mayans were obsessed with time keeping and even during their time, they were able to predict with accuracy all the eclipses and positions of the planets. Why did their calendar end on 21st December 2012?

Secondly, an unknown planet called Planet X which has an odd orbit will be entering the Solar System in the year 2012. This planet enters the Solar System every 3,600 years and 2012 is the year it returns, and possibly causing devastating weather conditions, widespread earthquakes and rising of sea level. Watch the 5-part video here.

Thirdly, the Milky Way galaxy will be aligning with the Earth and the Sun on the 21st December 2012 at the galactic equator. This event happens every 25,800 years! Scientists do not have a unanimous agreement on the effects of such an alignment on planet Earth. The worst possible scenario may be the end of the world! Read about how the Mayans already calculated the date of this alignment long time ago here.

Fourthly, the late Terence McKenna used the I-Ching to do some kind of mathematical fractal operation and produced a computer program which produced a "time wave" which mapped out something called "novelty" across the scale of time, from Big Bang to Eschaton, the end of time. The mapping of time mysteriously ends on 21st December 2012! He called the year 2012 "Time Wave Zero". Oh, this is really deep stuff, so you might want to watch this video for better understanding.



Isn't is scary that so many things seem to be happening and all point to this particular date - 21st December 2012?

Some say that it won't be the end of the world as we see it, but will just be a consciousness shift which leads to a leap in the evolution of human beings. Others even predicted that since humans will reach a higher level of consciousness, it will be the right time for aliens to come visiting! So the year 2012 will be known as the year we will finally make contacts with aliens! Well, I really don't know about that!

Anyway, you may want to watch this video which is in 6 parts. This is the first part. (The above video about "Time Wave Zero" is actually part 3 of this 6-part video)



You can watch Part 2 and subsequent parts here.

In fact, this talk on the year 2012 is so popular it's even been made into a movie due out later this year.

What do you think? Will the world come to an end in 2012?

Let's suppose it is true. Let's just say we know for a fact that 2012 is the year the world ends. What will you be doing differently right now?

Will you still be working hard at your job or your business?

Will you still be stressed up over small matters?

Will you forgive those who have wronged you?

Will you spend more time with your loved ones?

Will you learn to love more and hate less?

Will you see the good in every person no matter how you dislike him or her?

Will you be more religious or spiritual?

Will you travel the world over to see all the wonders of the world before they cease to exist?

Will you be non judgmental of people and situations?

Will you see the positive side of everything?

Will you treasure every single moment, every single day of your life?

What about people and events around you?

Will Malaysian political parties stop fighting with each other?

Will Malaysians stop demonstrating in the streets?

Will racial politics come to an end?

Will Israel and Palestine finally stop their war with each other?

Will North and South Korea make peace?

Will the terrorists stop their terror acts?

Will we finally have world peace?

Maybe this is what we need - the end of the world - for humans to wake up and change their ways. Perhaps it won't be the end just yet. Perhaps there's still hope if we realise this now.

    There's been a lot of assumptions over the many years.. Let's just not think about it and enjoy whatever that's left. Knowing this kinda thing will only make you anxious and worried.. I hate that feeling.. lol!

    I wonder if we humans evolve, will we be like Gundam 00's human innovator? ^.^

    Btw, I don't believe in end of the world. There are more things to come. Man had not reached space travel yet. More discovery to be done. ^.^

    There so many "will there be"s. I live one day at a time but doesn't mean I don't plan ahead.

    i still can't find myself believing it. i still won't stop what i'm doing right now, nor will i change the way i behave or do things. i am who i am till the end of the world. :)

  8. lina said...

    coming soon wor. Change anything about how I live? Not a bit. Or maybe I should charge everything to my credit card and let it accumulate in the hope that by 2012 and the world ends, I don't need to pay my bills. LOL

    March 12, 2009 at 8:42 AM
  9. khengsiong said...

    Lina's comment makes me laugh, haha...

    So if everybody spends like she does, the economic recession will end very soon. Well I must visit my dream destinations - Hokkaido, Silk Road and Africa safari parks before the end of the world.

  10. iamthewitch said...

    It's really quite scary come to think about it. But if we become too reckless with, say, spending, thinking that the world would end soon.. and end up the world does not end, then we'll be left with nothing! I guess it is very common for us humans to be kiasu and save for rainy days. That's why we always see people who died to leave behind big fortunes, while they lived skimpily during their time alive. Hmm..

    March 12, 2009 at 8:54 AM
  11. Babette said...

    Hmm, I would still continue spending time with my kids and husband. I guess I'll be more spiritually inclined, go to church everyday instead of just on Sundays. I would also do everything in my 'bucket list' (i.e. go bungee jumping, tandem skyjump, etc). LOL

  12. nic said...

    everyone everything exists for a reason... or maybe more... so it wont end just like tat :p... unless our purpose of existence has been fulfilled without us even realizing it :p

    okay, you just freaked me out. I am going to just keep living and doing my best. Very interesting!@

    I don't want to think about it. i just want to live each day with no regrets!

    yea I've heard of this quite long time ago. in fact my favorite number is 12 as I was born on Dec 12th at 12pm :D

  16. day-dreamer said...

    I shall just live my life as usual... because nobody knows whether it's true or otherwise, and why don't live life to the fullest rather than spending too much time thinking if we will die at 21 Dec 2012? LOL. Just my 2 cents. :)

    It's so depressing to know. I'm booking a ticket to Mars!

  18. Twilight Zone said...

    I was worried like you many years ago. Then I was told that a huge meteor would hit the world. It is due to karmic reasons. So do good and prayers may hopefully send the meteor to elsewhere!

  19. foongpc said...

    lady java, yes it's a scary thought, though I take it with a pinch of salt! Haha! Congrats for being FC!! Thanks for dropping by! : )

    cashmere, actually no need to really worry. It's all fated, right? Anyway, if it's really end of the world, what can we do? Unless every human has a shift in consciousness, nothing will stop the end of the world from happening if it does happen. Just live our lives to the fullest and focus at the present moment! : )

    March 12, 2009 at 12:30 PM
  20. foongpc said...

    shinky, be like Gundam? You watch too many Japanese anime! Haha!

    I also think the end of the world is not so soon. Look at the dinosaurs. They survived for 185 million years! We humans are not even close to that! Even if some catastrophe happens to strike earth, we humans will probably survive it. Is this called positive thinking? LOL!

    March 12, 2009 at 12:47 PM
  21. foongpc said...

    borneo falcon, yes, let's wait and see. In the meantime, don't hold your breath : )

    mei teng, it's good to live one day at a time. And it's good to plan too. Focusing on the present is the best way to live! : )

    levian, really? Even if you know for sure 2012 is the end of the world, you will still do the same as now?

    March 12, 2009 at 12:51 PM
  22. foongpc said...

    lina, haha! But you better make sure it's 100% certain the world will end in 2012. If not, finish lah... LOL!

    khengsiong, so if everyone follow Lina's spending style, the world economy will improve drastically months before Doomsday? haha! Funny!

    Oh, yes, going to your dream destinations is a must before the world ends! But in fact, even if the world does not end, you should still go! : )

    March 12, 2009 at 12:57 PM
  23. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, of course don't spend recklessly unless you are 100% sure 2012 is the end of the world. Haha!

    I feel we should not live skimpily and die leaving huge fortune behind. What a waste to live like that! If I have the money, I will spend it. Why, it makes me feel good, it helps other people and in return I will attract even more money!

    Of course, I'm not saying spend recklessly. Just spend within our means, and not skimp too much : )

    this is very unfortunate... the most unfortunate for the little ones who has yet able to enjoy this world.. :(

  28. Neo said...

    Wah... not bad indeed. So, when the world ends, do you think I can still go patoh with my girls?

    March 12, 2009 at 4:47 PM
  29. JL said...

    A saying goes - Live your life as if every day was the last day of it.

    I think that way, whatever end comes we will not be afraid.

    As I wrote on my blog before, there are humans, mere humans, on this earth who want to be God and trample upon everybody else. The hype about the end of the world is something they will concoct to justify their act of trampling. But they will lose, because they aren't God.

    For a down-to-earth scenario on how we might experience the end, read my free e-book, Walkabout: The History of a Brief Century. enjoy!

    hmmmm, end of the world huh?? i really wonder how true all those predictions would be, because we have seen our world suffered through a few predictions in the past right?? :)

    March 12, 2009 at 10:44 PM
  33. foongpc said...

    babette, yes better do everything in your 'bucket' list before the end of the world! Haha!

    nic, what is our purpose for existence?

    heidi, yeah, just living life to the fullest! : )

    March 12, 2009 at 11:27 PM
  34. pikey said...

    I really have doubts of all these. There's always the benefit of doubt on why the Mayan calendar ended. It could have been their limit on the calculation or decided not to calculate further. If not they will neeed to continue calculating it forever, eternity.

    And the Planet X. No record of the mass of the planet and the orbital path. Gravitational pull of heavenly bodies are subject to 4 factors (refer to STPM or A-level Physics) and all are still unknown.

    The alignnment of whatever plane of the galaxy to the Sun and Earth is of no effect. We are already inside the galaxy. We are already part of the galaxy (refer to Cosmology major).

    The destruction of Earth and whole solar system gone disarray cannot be just be computed by a software. Almost all the collapse of a planetary system in the universea is caused by the star having a supernova turning to a neutron star. When the nuclear force and the mass gravitational force are no longer in equilibrium (refer to Astronomy and Astrophysics major)

    And one more thing to add is that our existing calendar, the Gregorian calendar has been out of sync with many ancient calendars thanks to those medieval monks. Our present year 2009 may not be actually year 2009 at all.

    But anyway for the fun of it, I'm looking forward to the movie 2012.

  35. foongpc said...

    eiling, actually no point thinking about it. Just live life to the fullest without regrets is best! : )

    rad, oh be careful not to reveal everything about your birthdate, and time of birth. Otherwise, I can plot your Bazi chart and analyse your future. Haha!

    day-dreamer, yes live life to the fullest! But I just like to know what is in store for us during the end days. Actually, I like to be able to witness the end of the world - it'll be exciting and thrilling! Haha!

    March 12, 2009 at 11:35 PM
  36. foongpc said...

    DC, haha! I hope I can also book ticket to Mars - not to escape Earth, but just for a holiday! : )

    twilight zone, haha! I'm not worried. In fact, I hope to be able to live to witness the end of the world! It'll be cool! LOL!

    March 12, 2009 at 11:39 PM
  37. foongpc said...

    merryn, well, it's all fated. If the little ones are here when the world is about to end, it's their karma : )

    lina, haha! Yes either the world end or you habis! LOL!

    josephine, yeah scary. But sometimes, it's thrilling too! : )

    monica, wow! Thanks so much! Still my loyal reader in 2012? You know what,if 2012 is really end of the world, I think we bloggers will still be blogging, in fact, our blogging may even be more frequent and rise in intensity. Haha!

    neo, why not? But better go pak toh as much as you can now before end of the world. LOL!

    March 12, 2009 at 11:51 PM
  39. foongpc said...

    JL, yes live life as if today is your last! That's why you must follow me to China. You never know what will happen tomorrow! Haha! Maybe they predicted wrongly, end of the world is not 2012, but next year!

    In any case, I hope to be able to witness end of the world in my lifetime! : )

    gregory greene, wow, thanks for the free e-book. Will read it!! : )

    suituapui, haha! : )

    SK, that's why I wonder if this one will be any different. Somehow, I don't think it's true and 2012 will pass by without any devastating incident.

    March 13, 2009 at 12:07 AM
  42. foongpc said...

    pikey, my physics are quite poor lah! haha! You seem to know a lot of such things, which is a good thing : )

    Oh, thanks for the link! I will go read it! Actually, when I wrote this post, I already came across a lot of sites debunking this 2012 doomsday but I choose not to include them in my post to see the reactions from my readers : )

    there'll be lots of such predictions as time passes by. its predicted in the bible already

  45. foongpc said...

    vialentino, what is this man, I've been following you since a few months back! You didn't notice?

    johnny ong, the bible did not predict the actual dates. What I'm interested is the actual date, not just some revelations : )

    March 13, 2009 at 2:42 AM
  46. Jonzz said...

    Looks like these predictions have their elements of doubt, huh.

    Interesting stuff, though.

    actually Jim & Foong,
    that's what exactly I did when I was diagnosed with a tumor years and years ago. Blew our savings for our first trip to Japan. Never regretted it. :)

    If it's going to end then there is really nothing we can do about except to keep on enjoying life :D

    jonzz, yes interesting indeed. Thanks for dropping by! : )

    lina, you had a tumor years ago? I hope you're OK now? And spent your life savings on a trip to Japan? Wow!

    nick phillips, you are right. Nothing we can do about it - so just enjoy life to the fullest! : )

    I probably can guess how it would end with the mindless cutting down of trees, fishing, polluting the waters....etc. I fear for the future generations. They are the victims of what we do. :(

  54. LEon said...

    Think of it this way. We never know when one life will end too. Maybe before that or after that but one thing is certain

    Everything that has a beginning has an end.

    We don't live for the end. We live for now. cos if you missed that, you missed everything.

    It is a very scary thought so I guess we just need to live up our lives while we still can.

    This is damn scary.

    Do you have these two books of Merlin and Mother Shepterd's (forgot the spelling)prophecy? Now, you make me wanna buy these two books if they are available.

    Even though it can gives me great nightmare and stress thinking about it with so many goals still not achieved, I still want to read and know more about it.

    There's no harm.

    Is this the same Merlin like in the TV series? :P

    Oh man....
    don't think too much of the future
    just live in the now

    I see those people waiting for "second coming" and a shake my head coz they are looking at blank future and not enjoying the present life. It's like waiting to die or something.

  61. foongpc said...

    eastcoastlife, yes the survival of the earth really depends a lot on humans whether they take care of the environment or not!

    Good thing you are not moderating comments. So I can go on chopping. Haha!

    Eh, I'm not online at all hours. I'm not that free! It's because I'm so busy that's why I can only go online late at night. Sometimes no need to wake up early in the morning, so can blog till past 2am. Haha! : )

  63. foongpc said...

    faisal, yeah it's scary, but interesting at the same time. I actually hope to witness end of the world in my lifetime! Haha!

    Not sure if that's the same Merlin as in the TV series : )

    March 14, 2009 at 11:09 PM
  64. foongpc said...

    JL, yes, don't worry about tomorrow. Still, it's interesting to know the actual date of doomsday : )

    relax, yeah, just focus on the present. However, it's interesting to know the actual day when the world will end. Maybe the world won't end, just that time will end. Now isn't that interesting? : )

    life ramblings, yes, live life to the fullest is the best way to live! : )

    Interesting article. I will want to see the movie but I won't think much about the doom's day. My motto: Live everyday of your life to the fullest.

    jam, yeah I want to see the movie too. It's good not to worry too much about doomsday cos there's nothing we can do about it. You are right - just live life to the fullest! : )

    Hey foongpc:)

    I saw the documentary Zeitgeist, and it explained that simply the Mayan calender restarts in 2012. It doesn't end, but just restarts. :)

    Second, I believe human beings are coming to a consciousness shift indeed, though I don't believe aliens will come that year. They are already here and among us! :) If they wanted to hurt us - we'd be long gone... They are here to help... :)

    That's what I believe.

    Peace. :)

    Hmm...why does this sounds like Alien Vs Predator? Ha =) If Alien prevails then the earth will be doom! If predator managed to stave off them...then we will survive?

  70. foongpc said...

    monica, thanks for being my loyal reader even in 2012! No linky love for being FC on your post? That's too bad! Never mind, I'll try again! Love ya too! : )

    leo, I hope it's true that the Mayan calendar restarts, but this is as good as anybody's guess! Good thing humans are coming to a consciousness shift - I'm looking forward to that. It could only mean good things coming our way!

    You know what? I also think aliens are among us, but they can't reveal themselves just yet, cos we are still not ready until we have achieved some degree of consciousness shift : )

    tekkaus, does this sound like Alien vs Predator? You watched too much movies lah! haha! I think it's more like Humans vs Earth. If humans win, we are doomed! : )

    Exacly!
    If the "aliens" were to reveal themself to us it would end like in The Independance Day with Will Smith. Humans will attack them - we won't believe they come in peace!
    However, that would change if we were to have a shift of consciouss - the majority of us. :)
