11.11pm Dec 21,2012 thats when the world as we know it will meet its end folks…….thats what certain prophecies would want us to believe !

Amazingly, a number of historical prophecies…right from the Mayan civilization to the I Ching have arrived on this distinct date…….Hollywood is nervous folks….they arent taking any chances …they are releasing their new movie ‘2012‘(see poster above) almost 3 years before the infamous date ! 😛

I went through some interesting data regarding this 2012 phenomenon. I have presented both sides…for as well as against. One can choose which side to believe.
A summary of what I discovered :


 
(1) The Mayan Theory :

 

 
Supporters :
The time obsessed Mayans were supposed to be very precise at the art of predicting lunar,solar & planetary cycles. Their calendar is supposed to end on this particular date when the Galactic Alignment of the Sun,Earth & the center of the Milky Way occurs. Its theorized that a calamity will strike the Earth during this time.
 
Critics :
The Mayan calendars are supposed to be cyclic thus indicating the continuance of life. Instead some significant change is expected.

 


 
(2).The Polar Shift Theory :
 

 
Supporters :
As the Sun reaches the end of its sunspot cycle, an intense Solar Storm is expected(announced by NASA) which will amplify the effects of the magnetic field on Earth spurring a reversal of the Earth’s magnetic field which will cause unimaginable calamities.
 
Critics :
NASA has only predicted the Solar Storm…not its so called effects on Earth. Besides a stronger solar storm had occured on the SUN in 1958 …yet we are all still standing !


 
(3)The Planet Eris/X/Nibiru Theory:
 

Supporters :
The real cause of climate changes, volcanic activities, and intensification of the seismic activity etc. is the planet Eris’s getting closer to our solar system once in 3600 years which ultimately results in the melting of the glaciers. Its supposed to be responsible for the cataclysm ‘Noah’s Flood’ & is expected to return in 2012.
 
Critics :
Senior Scientist David Morrison of NASA has officially stated that the whole thing is a hoax which has existed for a long time. Nibiru does not exist. A dwarf planet Eric does exist but its orbit is nowhere near the Earth.
(view his statement at : Official NASA Statement )


 
(4) The I Ching Theory :
 

Supporters :
The Chinese ‘Text’ Oracle of the “I Ching” has accurately pointed to the fall of the Roman empire, discover of the new world, and world wars of the 20th century via its graphs. Now The highs and lows of the I Ching graphs are pointing to some major calamity in Dec 2012.
 
Critics :
There are many highs & lows of the graph which have passed without any problems. The ones to have been mapped to accurate events have been done AFTER the events passed !


 
(5)The Web Bots Prediction :
 

Supporters :
The Web Bots Project which could predict the movements of the stock market has predicted a series of events resulting in a major cataclysm in 2012.
 
Critics :
The Web-bot’s data pool is limited to what is being discussed on the Internet. The 2012 doomsday predictions have been made by it due to ‘End of the world’ alarmists are flooding the Internet with tons of information regarding 2012.



Science doesnt support or discard any theory unless there is sustainable evidence to back it up & not just mere speculation.
As per records more than 200 predictions have been made about the End of the World (Link : List of Doom days)…yet we still exist.

The 1 worry is the reoccurring of an event like the Heaven’s Gate incident where the cult committed mass suicide due to the appearance of the Hale Bopp Comet in 1997. (Link : Heaven’s Gate ).
Hope there are no such incidents ahead & people follow logic instead of blindly following their beliefs.
