2012 – The End of the World?

When asked ‘Do you expect any apocalyptic events to happen on December 21, 2012?’ sixteen percent of Americans said ‘yes’.

Now that may not seem a lot but actually evens out at over 40 million people. This added with the countless people in Europe, Oceana and even Asia and Africa who believe in this phenomenon, it adds to quite a lot.

Many ancient prophecies indicate that change is coming. Big change. Some people believe that this change will come in a complete apocalypse; the complete end of the world, whilst others believe that it will come in the form of human enlightenment, a quantum shift in human awareness and consciousness. Some even believe that the 21st will bring the return of Jesus, predicted for so long.

So why is the 21st of December 2012 the big day? Well this date is regarded as the end-date of a 5,125 year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar. This states (as I said earlier) that there will be a colossal change in the world.

However there have of course been ‘end of the world’ claims before. In the early 1900s, German scholar Ernst Förstemann interpreted the last page of the Dresden Codex as a representation of the end of the world in a cataclysmic flood. In September last year Ronald Weinland predicted Jesus Christ’s return to earth coinciding with nuclear explosions in US cities.

So really it is up to you. Is 2012 the end of the World?
