… there is a rapture prediction for 2012.
oh and the Mayans stopped their calendar by this age because they knew they’d be out of the jungle by then and would be able to check the date with their laptops. They is smart.
Christianity has "predicted" the end of the world for centuries.
2012 is definitely a Mayan thing, but translated and twisted to suit 21st century mentality and culture.
Always remember, the Bible itself, upon which so many of these "predictions" are based, pretty clearly states that NO ONE will know when or how, and warns about false prophets. Seems pretty absurd, doesn't it?
Personally, I would take these Biblical warnings as an abstract lesson/warning rather than a literal interpretation, and the Mayan stuff should be seen as an opportunity, or a sign-post to start real change in the way humanity runs itself.
