    No. But if it does, none of us will be around to care.

    honestly, we consult the mayan lore for the rest of our science and facts so i don't see why we wouldn't trust them on this.

    I think a far more interesting question would've been, "Do you think the world will end on a Friday?"

    After all, if we take as a given that since no planet can go on existing forever (the sun will eventually go nova on us, even though it be eons from now), then there will be a day when Earth will no longer be sustainable for human life. On which day will it happen that the last human being dies on earth (or rockets away toward some distant super-civilization in a more habitable star system, the last natives to leave Earth forever)? A Friday? A Monday? A Thursday? I suppose we have a one-in-seven chance, no matter which day we choose.

    Nope. I think Mayans just need to put up their new calendar. :)

    The five yes votes are satirical, right?

    It's clearly going to be a Thursday. I could never get the hang of Thursdays.

    The world can't end, because Marty McFly already went to 2015 and everything is fine there.

    This reminds me, we've only got a couple more years to perfect the hoverboard... get on it, people.

    And no, of course the world isn't ending on Friday. Because the Mayans had to stop somewhere with their calendar, and 12/21/12 was a) really far in the future and b) the end of a cycle, they stopped there. It wasn't even a prediction on their part (and even if it had been that's no reason to think they were right).

    I think humans will end before the world does. The Earth will be fine long after we are all gone.
