Are you getting nervous the closer we inch towards December 21, 2012? That’s when the Mayan calendar reportedly ends and fears that the end of the world is near is spreading across the world. Doomsdayers are predicting a cataclysmic end of the Earth. Well, no use shopping until you drop for Christmas, right? Sorry, I scarcely believe this will be the end of the world. Just saying.

Ahead of December 21, which marks the conclusion of the 5,125-year “Long Count” Mayan calendar, panic buying of candles and essentials has been reported in China and Russia, along with an explosion in sales of survival shelters in America. In France believers were preparing to converge on a mountain where they believe aliens will rescue them.

The precise manner of Armageddon remains vague, ranging from a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, a disastrous crash with a comet, or the annihilation of civilisation by a giant solar storm.

In America Ron Hubbard, a manufacturer of hi-tech underground survival shelters, has seen his business explode.

“We’ve gone from one a month to one a day,” he said. “I don’t have an opinion on the Mayan calendar but, when astrophysicists come to me, buy my shelters and tell me to be prepared for solar flares, radiation, EMPs (electromagnetic pulses) … I’m going underground on the 19th and coming out on the 23rd. It’s just in case anybody’s right.”

[..]

Mayans themselves reject any notion that the world will end. Pedro Celestino Yac Noj, a Mayan sage, burned seeds and fruits to mark the end of the old calender at a ceremony in Cuba. He said: “The 21st is for giving thanks and gratitude and the 22nd welcomes the new cycle, a new dawn.” Source

    I swear, I am staying indoors until this blows over. With people panicking like this, there is no telling what crazy things they will do.

      Me too. I don’t think the world will end, but a few stupid people want to create a self-fulfilling prophecy. That type of person is the kind that needs you to suffer with them.

    The Mayan scare what is it ? Has anyone thought that maybe the reason the calander stops at 12-21-2012 may be do to the end of their world before they had a chance to keep going, not so much as the end of ours. It just seems this is the most likely answer to the question. I guess 12-22-2012 will tell it all. Do ya think. I know lets wait and see if I’m right.. Later

    Well no wonder people panic so damn much, media don’t help much by calling it an apocalypse. 10 Links on yahoo search and every single one had the same headline.

  • ugh

    For some like every day it will be the physical end of the world. The FEAR is being perpetuated by the world managers and they may have a few interesting events planned but what most people need to understand it is a point of no return in HUMANKIND spiritual development. Not an ending of the world but the beginning of a new world based on love, peace, light and true abundancy instead of the old world of hate, war, darkeness and greed.
    Namaste,

      They feart has been spread by the internet and the history channel not world managers. That and the idots who listen to this crap!

    I agree Kanna-Chan.3 main things to help everyone out.1,is that the mayans didnt say the end of the world,they meant more like end of an era,the beggining of something new.2.For example I live in Texas in the United States,that means that around 4pm on that thursday which is the 20th,it will already be the 22nd in Australia.And last but definitley not least,the Mayans had no idea nor did they ever use LEAP YEAR.So if you were to do the math,that day already pasted about 4 years ago.

    The Mayans did NOT predict anything in their calendar much less a doomsday. The idea that they did is a hoax that was created in the 1980’s. The Mayan calendar was a religious calendar. Their baktuns were 144,000 days long, and were collections of shorter calendars. The current (13th) baktun will end, or be completed, on 13.0.0.0.0 (December 21, 2012. This also marks the be
    ginning of the 14th baktun. It had nothing to do with an actual Earth year, so whether leap years were accounted for or not is irrelevant. The end of a baktun was seen as a time to celebrate new beginnings. The Maya would do things like abandon a city they’d been living in and go find a new city. It had absolutely nothing to do with the end of anything, much less the end of the world. If anything we will enter a new age of enlightenment and end the enslavement of the incarcerated mind. If you havent noticed already by our technological advances we have evolved and will continue to do so going forward. Enjoy.

    I am so hoping that there are going to see mass suicides all over the globe because of this! I hoped that would have happened on Y2K, but it didn’t! Hey, any of you people who actually believe this BS: Can I have all your stuff? You sure aren’t going to need it!

  • Kaden Martin

    Again, I shall do my best to help comfort those who are afraid and worried. It saddens me th at many has lost touch or forgotten their true nature of the Divine. I can’t stress enough unto the masses that this hype is only what it is..”HYPE”. Sadly though, because of the BELIEF that many has of this so called end would actually manifest itself unto them that are far beyond reach.

    They are convinced within their minds that “AN END IS COMING” which actually is “THEIR END”. But even at their end, they shall still exist. For those of you that are CONVINCED that such end would occure, I give this unto you….”YOU ARE LOVED BY THE DIVINE AND YOU CAME INTO THIS REALITY / WORLD TO EVOLVE AND TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE ALSO TO WORK OUT YOUR PAST NEGATIVE KARMA AND EMBRACE YOUR GOOD KARMA. If you decide to “END” your reality / life/ world (that YOU CREATED) then just know that this isn’t the first time you have experienced such violent passing. You’ve been through this many many times and guess what? YOU STILL EXISTED AND CAME BACK EVEN MORE WISER THAN YOUR OTHER LIVES / REALITIES. You are not alone nor should you ever be because YOU ARE APART OF THE DIVINE THAT HAS NO BEGINNING NOR AN ENDING.

    You do not have to sucume unto this hysteria that the masses, the media is spreading. Because we all have free will and shall always, you have a choice to make. You can choose to forget your true nature and become a victim OR go deep inside yourself and ASK of your HIGHER SELF OR SPIRITUAL GUIDE to open your eyes and restore your DEVINE POWERS OF CREATION AND WISDOM and they SHALL DO SO. I am a SPIRITUAL PROPHET WITH GREAT WISDOM AND MY SPIRITUAL GUIDE HAD INSTRUCTED me to do a video just based on this “NEGATIVE HYPE” to help others who are afraid. I done what I was instructed to do and posted it on YOU TUBE. I’m not sure if I can post the link here so I’ll just tell you how to find the video. Go to YOU TUBE…..TYPE IN “2012 end of the world and God” or type “BEYOUNDTHESTARS 2012 End of the world and God”. Or just type in “BEYOUNDTHESTARS Kaden Martin”. Look for the name “kaden Martin”…that’s my name. There are 4 videos posted. For this specific purpose, watch the video about 2012 end of the world and God. It is unlike any video you have ever witnessed but it is important that you get a clear understanding of who you are and events that takes place and why. This has nothing to do with religion so let that be understood. I am here to help yet the rest is up to you all. Be blessed….~Kaden
