    Why, because it was a scam?

    I'm predicting a spike in the hippy suicide rate in early-mid 2013.

    Isn't the point of the whole 2012 thing not that some apocalyptic mega-event is going to occur that is going reap massive destruction, but that the world quite literally is going to end i.e somehow be snuffed out of existence? If that's the case, stocking up would be beside the point.

    The big point against this nonsense is that they can't even keep their stories straight about what will happen.

    No, but I've heard about it. It actually prompted me to look up the particular 'prophecy' verse in the Old Testament to see what all the fuss was about, but like nearly every verse of scripture I couldn't read much into it.

    As someone who wishes doomsday rumors would go away, I like the cut of the Chinese government's jib.

    I think a lot of the obsession (at least within the last 30 years or so) has been more about the fear of death and dying. I think in an odd way the fact that they know when they'll die and they won't be dying alone is comforting.

    It's going to come close, but not to the point of hitting the planet.

    Probably because apophis is a false god and only the one true god can end the world

    If I was the CEO of a power company, I would try to arrange for a short blackout on the 21st just to mess with people. Sure, the people on ventilators and iron lungs might croak, but after the power came back, I think everybody would think it was kind of funny.

    When all of these idiots wake up in the morning on the 22nd, I wonder if they'll be mad at the Mayans... even though the end of the world was not something the Mayans were intending to predict with their calendar.

    Oh? Oh wait since you're the Guardian of Arlon does that mean you'll finally let this Arlon fellow loose upon the world, and Arlon will destroy everything with Jeezus music which will cause people's heads to explode ala Scanners?

    This isn't Mars Attack, no to your questions, and Arlon is a place not a monster.

    When they mean the end of the world do they mean BLAMMO it all stops and we are done or that the Earth gets all messed up and I can wander the world going through all your stuff?

    Sure, science also needs its catchphrases to appeal to the masses, but... the big bagel?

    Would you prefer the big torus?
