Just seeing how many people actually believe this. Damn Mayans and their calendar.
The answer is "no".
the world's ending in December???
Damn my school still doesn't have it's own Gangnam Style video
You forgot to add the option "Don't be so fucking stupid."
It's been scientifically proven (meaning, by linguists, mathematicians and archeologists) that the Mayan calendar does not set the date as the end of the world - it's just the end of a cycle. The entire "End of the World" prophecy is pure fantasy born from the fact that in the past, we could not decipher the complete meaning of the calendar.
In fact, this is just the date on which... the calendar for a given cycle ends and moves on to the next cycle.
Does the world end each time you change your calendar, meaning each December? No, of course not, that's ridiculous. Our calendar has 12 months, their calendar had several cycles, and one of those cycles will be ending now - no more, no less to it.
Load of tomfoolery / bollocks.
Well, good thing about being a naysayer: We don't have to hear any "I told you so" if the world decides to go boom.
i believe whenever you hear about the end of the world, it's because som1 needs to sell you somthing.
think about Y2K (god now i feel old...) everyone bought new computers, Prepping supplies, generators, TP you name it.
i remember people were claiming to be "experts" and thet'd go around testing for "y2k compliancy" in peoples electronics.
now with this you see all these guys prepping and buying more stuff.
personally i think climate change is more important than some mystical Mayan calendar.
also i bet the only reason their calendars lasted 1000+years is because it was really freaking hard to chisel a calendar out of stone
What's wrong with you?! The world already ended when twinkies, that are suppose to survive a nuclear apocalypse, ended.
Yes, just cause Assassin's creed 3 said so and we all know gaming=reality.
Even if there was some mass extinction event, it's unlikely the world would actually end. As we haven't seen anything headed right at us from space, it's unlikely that the planet will shatter, so it'll endure even if we're gone. Additionally, it'd take a hell of a punch to take out every form of life on the planet.
Any scientifically reasonable event capable of extincting all of mankind within less than 24 hours can be predicted months, if not years, in advance.
This is just like the past 5000000 times someone claimed "the world will end on this day X" to make some quick and easy money off of stupid people and/or get attention.
Anyone voting yes should be banned imo.
Then promptly unbanned a day later for no real reason.
And then perma-banned on December 22nd.
And no, it's not gonna happen.
And we call that the GBAtemp way!
What a load of crap.
The only way I see the world ending is when one genius decides to start a nuclear war.
