    It's a combination of two main ideas. The Mayan Calendar stops in December of 2012 so as they were oh so accurate, doom sayers claim they foretold the end of times. Now either they were just that smart, or sheer luck, but the day that calendar does stop is the moment in our history our sun and planet cross directly over a galactic medium where the center of the universe, our star, and us (think of a piece of paper) cross from above to below it. It is unknown to any science if nothing will happen, or something could happen. Sky could change color, we may get irradiated into atoms, who knows.

    So it's all a play to mess with people or we're fucked...no one truly knows.

    Psh. Those Mayans don't know anything. I mean, they got scared by horses... And the Spanish wiped the floor with them. Hahaha juuust kidding.

    Yeah, the Mayans said it, but how accurate can they really be? Then again, I might be proven wrong. The Mayans might have predicted when that hadron collider would go online and create a black hole. (Uh, right.)

    It's the end of the Mayan calendar, that's all. Not the end of the world. It's just a bunch of crap the kooks and fear-mongers come up with for who-knows-what reason.

    The Mayans think that, on Wikipedia (blah blah blah, was curious) they said the magnetic field will change or something and a bunch of nuclear bombs will explode.

    What Vampire said. About the Mayan calender.

    Over all of this, do you guys believe it? Like people saying that the world will end in 2012. I want the Mayans to be messing with us and are completely in accurate. I want the magnetic field to take 1000s of more years to change just so nuclear bombs won't explode. All I want is for the world to live... Most likely, I'll be spending a lot of time with my family by then.

    Since I am Catholic, it says in the bible the end of the world is the 2nd Judgment Day when Jesus and God come to Earth. I am suppose to believe that when that day comes, that'll be the end of the world. But this thing about Mayans and Magnetic Fields are what scare me...

    the magnetic field, from what i understand, can change polarities rather quickly. but why would that set off nukes? are they magnets now?
    the only thing that this would change is the way you have to use a compass, and a few other lame ass things.

    The egyptians think it too. But they also thought the brain didn't do anything.

    The world will not end, the worse we'll expect are satellite signal interruptions and compass interference like mucus said.

    Me and everyone I know think it's a huge load of bullshit. So what if some ancient civilization decided to end their calendar? That movie 2012 isn't going to help people think this won't happen either.
