    Edit: The end of the world thing has happened quite a few times during the last 10 years, just this one is the biggest one.

    Maybe, If crazy people in charge of nuclear missiles will decide to spam the entire world.
    No, because end of the world theories are just plain old stupid, for example I have a theory (I should start my own cult [​IMG] ) that the world would end on 2345 because I think that number is special, see what I did there ?

    Planet X – A new planet in our solar system that is suppose to collide with earth in 2012. The orbital pattern of the planet comes within very close proximity of earth and provides relatively strong evidence for the collision of earth. Though this evidence may seem conclusive, other calculations have been made to show that it will pass by earth.

    I do not believe the world will end in 2012, I do however, believe it will change drastically from how we know it.

    It really depends on what you would consider 'World' and how you interpret the question

    If by 'World' you mean 'The Earth with its inhabitants.' - then IF some disaster happens ('Naturally' - e.g. an Asteroid hitting the planet, or 'Manmade' - e.g. Nuclear War) during 2012, which kills all life on the planet then the answer is 'Yes - the World would end'

    However, if by your definition of 'World' is 'A celestial body such as a planet', then even if all life is destroyed - the actually planet would most probably exist (even in a mangled wreck) so technically the 'World' will still exist so the answer would be 'No....unless the disaster is the Sun going Supernova & disintegrates the planet to dust'

    If however you are asking that 'something' will happen in 2012 that will achieve any of the above scenario's is very slim, so MY opinion on that is a '99.9% No'.

    But since no-one can predict the future (even 'Nostradamus' predictions are vague anyway) & that the phase 'Anything can happen' IMHO is very appropriate in this situation - there may be that very slim chance, even at 0.000000001%, that 'something' does happen that will affect the whole world - maybe not necessarily 'end it' but will certainly 'change it'

    It's just as possible as it is any other year...and even then you have to define what you mean by the end of the world. End of human life? End of animal life? End of life on Earth? End of the planet Earth (somehow crumbles?)?

    This is very non-specific, and the only way anyone can debate on it would be if A) we defined it... and B) we have some 14 year old losers on here that say LOLYES IT END 2012 MAYAN PREDICT IT!!!!!!! LOLOLOLOL



    Seriously, JetKun, if you want to make this thing work, choose debatable topics. Gay marriage, net neutrality, feminism (I reaaaally want to go at that one), or something like that. Something that actually has two sides with valid points.

    The world is going to end when the sun becomes a supernova and absorbs it, but otherwise nothing's going to happen.

    This topic sucks. And all ideas for future topics do, too.

    NO.
    In 2013, I will watch 2012 and laugh.

    But I do believe the asteroid thing crashing into earth in 203x though

    I suggest you don't do this unless you'll want it to become a religious flame thread.

    GBAtemp and dem religious threads.
    Never change.

    Well actually, if the human race even does survive long enough to see this (what I'm about to say), we won't be around to watch the supernova. The Sun will expand and release heat from a closer distance first for a few billion years, and we will die from it. There may be some bacterium and/or insects still around, but that's about it.
