Are you concerned the world will end on Dec. 21?

Even NASA has jokes about Friday. "Dec. 21, 2012, won't be the end of the world as we know," the space agency said on its website, "however, it will be another winter solstice."

NASA has devoted a page on its website to debunking the doomsday myth that, in accordance with the Mayan calendar, the world will end on Dec. 21. The site addresses several scenarios -- the possibility of planetary alignments, total blackouts, polar shifts and "a planet or brown dwarf called Nibiru or Planet X or Eris that is approaching the Earth and threatening our planet with widespread destruction" -- but comes to the same conclusion.

"For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, where is the science? Where is the evidence?" the website said. "There is none, and for all the fictional assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, we cannot change that simple fact." In short, NASA says, "the world will not end in 2012."

    No and i think NASA does itself a dis-service by even legitimizing it by responding to it, whats next will the American Medical journals publish papers on how the possibility of ZOMBIES will not happen?

    Concerned? No, not at all.

    However if we were to die, I wouldn't mind. I would die happy.

    From what I heard, they never predicted the end of the world to start with. Okay, so it's the last day of their calendar, but what happens after the last day? You go right back to the first day.

    Just like our calendar: Does the world end after December 31? No, we start over again with January 1. Same with their calendar.

    It's already the 21st in Australia..... My supervisor, "Um guys, I've requested the day off tomorrow because it's the end of the world, so I won't be here due to that". Said in passing. *sigh*

    Absolutely not, if this has to do with the bible prophecies, then it doesn't say that the world is going to end, it says that we are going to be judged, the earth was designed to last forever.

    Well, I don't think the world will end. The Mayans say on this date the Sun will intersect with the Milky Way Galaxy forming something called the "Tree Of Life". When this happened, they believe that the present world age would "graduate" before the god-like presences of the things that sustained their life. So they say our age will end, while a NEW era of life would begin. By their calculations, this was a cycle that would revolve, complete, and start over again. I DON'T think the world will end, but just in case there is something we don't know, I've been more attached and compassionate towards my family than I've ever been.

    As of this posts it's already 6:30 AM Friday morning in China.

    Hmm... I don't see any of my relatives in China online!!

    Then again - would we suppose that it comes at the end of the 21st? Like at midnight Quetzacoatl shows up yes?

    I'm more worried that it won't in a way. The world, society's and the human consciousness is rapidly decaying. We need to be saved from ourselves.
