End of the World or Just Another Day?

The whole world to be talking about the date December 21, 2012. Many people speculate that the world will come to a cataclysmic end that day. Others say it's much-ado-about-nothing – that life will go the same as any day. There has been much written and much said about 12/21/2012. Why is there a buzz about this date? What's it all about? Will December 21, 2012 bring about the end of the world, or will it be just another day?

The ancient Mayan civilization of present day Mexico and Central America was advanced in areas such as architecture, the arts, mathematics, and science – including astronomy. The Mayan astronomers developed an incredibly accurate calendar stretched for thousands of years, ending abruptly at the date December 21, 2012. What this means open to speculation, and the Mayans didn't explain, but many people concluded that this date will bring on great change. Some believe it will be a great positive spiritual change of some sort, others believe it will be the start of a catastrophic, if apocalyptic event.

Believers a doomsday end-of-the-world scenario predict a number of possible events that might bring about the end of the world such as a comet or an asteroid collision Earth or a pandemic disease.

With all of the predictions about 2012, many people are worried about the future. “How do we plan for a cataclysmic event,” “What can we do to stop it” and “How can we survive it” are just a of the questions being asked about this date. However, in of all the speculation, the uncertainty, and the unanswered questions, even the best educated minds cannot predict for sure what will happen. No can really know, at least human on earth can.
