end of the world. 2012

I have heard and read many things that have said that the world will end in 2012. What is your thoughts, here are a few things from pages that are facts. The Mayans are one of these groups of people who believed in the cycles of the planet. At the end of each stage the world sufferes a cataclysm. I think (without) checking that we are in the sixth period and at the end of this (2012/2013) the world just ends, no more cycles. On December 21, 2012 The Mayans believe that the 5th world age will begin. This means that our present age (the 4th) will end. The Mayans were aware of the galactic occurrence of precession. Precession is caused by the wobbling of the earths axis. This wobbling causes stars to shift in positions about 1 degree every 72 years. It takes 25,800 years to complete one wobble or cycle of precession. I may be mistaken as it has been about a month since I last read about the subject but I believe a cycle of precession ends on December 21, 2012. Also on that day the sun lines up with the center of the milky way and a dark rift will appear in the sky as a result. The Mayan people believe this rift to be Xibelbebe or the road to the underworld.

I have heard this also about the Mayan calendar. However, only God knows the day and time the world will end. The world will end one day. The Bible says it will. God will create a new Heaven and a new Earth for HIS people one day.

well, i am not a very scientific person but i guess, it's only up to the ONE that created me, i am catholic and as a catholic i believe in GOD, Jesus Christ and Mary. it's really up to HIM when HE will destroy HIS creation. the only thing that matters to me more is to be a good person and i think that's what really matters the most.i think if 2012 is the "end of the world", then we creatures should really bind ourselves together for peace on earth.there should be no more time for fighting and war,we shouldn't be angry all the time because TIME is too short...we should cherish the things that's around us and the things that made us what we are today...and if "end of the world" comes,we will be ready to face life after...
