    I don't believe it'll end when the Mayan calendar ends.

    Will it end in 2012 by our own doing? Entirely possible.

    Absolutely not. Doomsday talk is more interesting to people than proof otherwise. Just a load of junk.

    No, if the Mayans were so smart then how come they didn't know their civilization was going to be destroyed?

    No. If the world ends on that day, it will be from our own doing and not from a calendar.

    Nope. There's not much of that sort of thing I believe in.

    No. Doom and gloom prophecy stuff often times reflects current societal unrest.

    The Mayan Calendar relates to themselves... I mean... where are they now?

    This world is over 4 billion years old, it is safe to say it will continue for a long time beyond 2012.

    Pretty much sums it up for me.

    No, not at all. I'm kind of expecting a slight increase in suicides as the year gets closer to the date though, because of people who actually do think it is the case.

    I fully expect it to end on January 1, 2013, though. Because the universe likes irony and gallows humor.:p

    Agree. The way things are shaping up, I'm looking for the rapture within the next 50 years though.

    Uh-uh.

    See here's the thing -- it's a calendar. That's it.

    I don't know, maybe the Mayans got bored at some point and decided to draw up a calendar for a few hundred years. I doubt they thought their civilization was going to end so they just stopped with the calendar, thinking they could finish it some other time.

    Could the world end 2012? Sure. Because a bunch of idiot people might just blow our planet up, who knows?

    But I seriously doubt it'll have anything to do with the Mayan calendar.

    No; any more than Mother Shipton and that other Italian dude were right about the end of the world...

    I don't believe that it will end this year, but I believe there is every chance it could end this year.

    According to Chris Jericho it was supposed to end last night at the Royal Rumble. I'm betting he was rethinking that prediction as he flew off the ring apron to the floor at the end.

    In December, I'll be investing in as many diaper companies as possible. Lots of unsafe sex when you believe the world is ending!

    See any Mayans about? Why we should we then believe their calendar?
