Some experts believe a comet will destroy our civilization in the year 2012 ! thats when my son will star Kindergarten... so i found this discovery to be very upsetting. If something were to happen and we all perished i would just be so devastated if i couldnt protect my little boy :( What do you think?

no its not going to happen, people have been predicting doomsday for centuries but its never happened. we will continue living for as long as it takes us to destroy ourselves

Ya that is why 2012 is predicted - the destruction of ourselves. Not literally, but it is said that we have lost touch with ourselves and we forgot where home is. More or less, you either jump on board now or be lost when it happens. Its not a scare tactic, since no one is gonna die, but there will be a major parting of man-kind. The truth will find ya!

I don't think so because i think the Almighty Omnipotent One has control over us.He created every single living being and the earth. He is only the one that has the right to do so. We will have just to pray every day.

I don't believe in "Him" but if i did I would say that the dinosaurs were taking over and he had to stop them by killing them with a comet. Now Humans are taking over so he will kill us the same way. I think the idea of some almighty guy in the sky controlling comets is ridiculous, and if it happens it happens, and if not then we continue living. It's that simple, no super power involved.

some south-american myths predict that the world would end in 2012, so we we'll just have to wait and see:)

I don't think anyone knows when the world will end. There is no point worrying about that which we cannot control in any event.

Don't believe the hype. Life is too short to worry about things we have no control over. When you feel stressed, just think of the Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Even if you aren't religious, this is good advice to live a more worry-free life.

That's a good way to rationalize it... and normally that's how I would be... I would just live life to the fullest... but after becoming a mother...I'm just a big ball of nerves now, lol Thanks for the advice :)

I think it will be cool if it happens. Civilization is so out of control, something has to stop it before we destroy the world ourselves. I don't think we would all die, but many people would. You would just have to hope that the comet hits another part of the earth and that your son doesn't get killed.
