A leading Nasa scientist has stated that fears surrounding the concept that the world will end in 2012 are little more than a myth fuelled by internet rumour and that the apocalyptic planet Nibiru does not exist.

"Fears that the world is due to end in December 2012 is just a myth fuelled by internet rumour, according to a leading Nasa scientist."

Amen to that!! Even if Pythagoras, Plato, Kepler, Galileo, and Einstein were all numerologists it would not make the theory of numerology one iota more plausible. True enough. Mark my words...a year from now, some insane thing will be slated to occur on 10 October, 2010. The same will follow on 11 November, 2011, and of course on 12 December, 2012. Can you imagine what will occur on New Year in the year 2222???

..... Can you imagine what will occur on New Year in the year 2222??? Yes I can.... the year 2222... 2 aliens will take 2 hours to explain to 2 believers that they never visited the Earth until 2 day.

A plausible scenario... even in the bible. the so called end of the world isn't the end. but a beginning new earth, new heaven and all that stuff. and according to the bible no one but god knows when that will be, not even christ. so i am not going to worry about it until the dome of the rock is destroyed by what ever means it is destroyed.

2012 is the end of an era and that's all. The Mayans should have extended their calendar, but didn't.

What's utterly distressing is that a scientist had to come out and actually address this nonsense. Classical Mayan scholars agree that this doomsday 2012 end of the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar is nonsense. And besides, it didn't really matter if the calendar ended in 2012 (and that is also not something agreed upon by scholars in the field); it didn't serve the classical Mayan civilization beyond its demise, over 1100 years ago, and Maya today have no idea what all the hoopla over this is about. Even if there was some association with the end of the world and the termination of the Long C... [More]

YES. People just need something to be scared of and/or something to start fear mongering about. It's that "need" which is the real issue...something definitely worth studying.

If past experience is anything, their beliefs will be strengthened. Similar things have happened when the prophecied End of the World didn't happen for all sorts of religious groups, and yet the same groups survive today. The strongest explanation is that their prayers averted the end of the world: "See why you should join us? Th... [More]

I always get this image of the Mayans having this one guy write out the whole calendar because he is the only one who can write.... but then he falls ill and dies before he can carry on... Thousands of years later and everyone is screaming about the end of the world. LMFAO
