I have read two books about 2012 and both had drastically different opinions on the events that would take place during this year. I have also read numerous webpages and reports all stating that their site was the most accurate on what would happen to mankind and Earth on this day.
So, what do I think? Well, to be honest I don’t know. AND, I won’t claim to know in order to gain an audience, or your money for that matter. December 21, 2012, marks the end of the Mayan calendar. Why would someone think that they could necessarily predict the end of the world? If so, wouldn’t they have said something about it? “Hey! We’re stopping our calendar here because this is the last day of the world!”. Perhaps they just got tired of calculating the calendar?
Perhaps, they are right and the world WILL in fact end on December 21, 2012. If this is true and all of mankind and the Earth itself will be destroyed this day, why worry? Enjoy every day as if it’s your last. Even if the world will end on this day, that’s no guarantee that any of us will live until then anyway!
If you’re a religious person, the Bible says that no one, including Jesus and the angels in Heaven know when the world will come to an end. If they don’t know, what would make the Mayans more special than them? Why would they know, but NOT Jesus and the angels?
Some websites try to convince people that the world will in fact be destroyed, but that they should buy special disaster/survival kits from them so that they may survive. Well, if the entire world is going to be destroyed, I just don’t think a survival kit is going to help you out much. Now, I actually think that survival kits are a great thing! I am a hiker and camper and survival kits can actually save your life if you’re lost in the woods after a hike until help can find you. Look at the natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina. Having a great survival kit that you could grab and run out the door could be very handy until you could be helped, but let’s save that for another article!
So, I guess if I HAD to form an opinion on what I thought would happen on December 21, 2012, it’d be drastically different from what most people are saying. Look at the way people are changing on a global level. We’re all becoming more aware of the environment and how to protect it. People are starting to be more kind to each other. People are trying to bring about peace once more. Another tidbit for the religious, it says in the Bible that there will be 100 years of peace on earth…or was it 1000? Sorry, I can’t personally remember.
So, I would have to say that if forced to come upon a conclusion I would say that 2012 will bring about peace. I think that the collective mind of mankind will grow in love and respect for each other. I believe that races, religions, and genders will be tolerant of one another. I believe that we will truly love our neighbors and treat others as we’d like to be treated.
Who knows if this will happen? You have to admit, it’d be great if it did! So tell me, what all do you guys think will happen on December 21, 2012? Do you think the world will be destroyed by pandemic, natural disasters, a giant comet or Planet X crashing into Earth’s orbit? How about magnetic polar shifts creating another ice age? What about MY idea, or do you just think nothing will happen at all?
Good luck everyone, and hopefully I’ll see you on December 22, 2012!
