Will the world end in December 21 2012?
The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs according to which cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on 21 December 2012. This date is regarded as the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar.
Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae have been
proposed as pertaining to this date, though none have been accepted by
A New Age
interpretation of this transition is that this date marks the start of
time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical
or spiritual transformation, and that 2012 may mark the beginning of a new era. Others suggest that the 2012 date marks the end of the world or a similar catastrophe. Scenarios suggested for the end of the world include the arrival of the next solar maximum, or Earth's collision with an object such as a black hole, a passing asteroid, or a planet called "Nibiru".
