Will the world really end on December 21,2012?

It is the dooms day that is foretold in the Mayan Calendar, the Chinese Oracle I Ching and even an intenet based prophetic software program, 2012 the date that is prophesized as the end of the world. There are many reasons why we should believe that the world will end.

But is there any science behind it? Could ancient oracles truely predic the future? Can you believe it? The answer could affect all of us.

1. The Mayan Calendar

The ancient Mayas of central America created the calendar so precise that it could predict lunar eclipses literally thousands of years in the future. Yet the Mayan calendar mysteriously ends on one date, December 21, 2012. The date December 21st, 2012 A.D. ( in the Long Count), represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator (Equator of the Milky Way) and the Ecliptic (path of the Sun), what that ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree. This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands and thousands of years.

Does end of Mayan calendar mean end of the world ?

What is so special about Mayas? Why should we believe them? Please visit Mayans and Their Calendar and decide yourself whether to believe or not.

2. The Web Bot Project

Ancient predictions might seem hard to believe but what if the prediction is done by modern science technology which most of us are not aware of. The newest version of the 2012 dooms day prophecy comes from oracle which is not even a human. Its designers call it the web bot project. It is a program to predict possible futures. It predicts future events by tracking keywords entered on the Internet.
The Web Bot has gained most of its notoriety for contributing to the 2012 phenomenon by predicting that a cataclysm will devastate the planet in the year 2012, possibly a reversing of Earth’s magnetic poles or a small series of nuclear attacks leading up to a major attack during the year.
But once again should we believe such an internet based program predicting end of the world?

3.The Chinese I Ching

The identical dooms day date can be found in the one of the China’s oldest text called I Ching or the Book of changes which is approximately 5000 years old.
Terence Mckenna studied the fascinating numerology behind the I Ching The 6 lines and 64 possible combinations was expressed as ratio of change in each hexagram and plotted on a graph. Then he mapped that graph over a time line. The graph would fit perfectly over the timeline and in doing so, the end of the graph lined up upon December 22, 2012.
Does the ending of Mckenna's time line mean the end of the world?

What is so special about Chinese I Ching? Who is Terence Mckenna? Should we believe it? Please visit Chinese I Ching and know the answer to the above questions.

4. The Book of Revealation

Threat of the apocalypse also comes from more familiar source, the Bible. The Bible’s track record for accurate prophecy is legendary. The books of revelation predict an apocalypse in the future and some say it is happening now. It is filled with terrifying images and it is all about the apocalypse, and the coming of the end, the final battle of good versus evil.
Does the Bible specify the date?
Should only Christens believe to what bible says? Should you believe too? Please know more here at The Book of revelation and 2012

5. Super Volcano

Super volcanoes are no ordinary volcanoes. They are substantially larger than the common volcano and produce the biggest and most deadly eruptions on earth. Yellowstone Volcano is one of the biggest and most realistic of the 2012 predictions. Scientists will tell you today that Yellowstone is overdue for a volcanic eruption, thus leading to the theory that 2012 could be that date. An eruption from this supervolcano could be catastrophic, as it is estimated to be 1,000′s of times more powerful than a regular volcano The explosion will fill the atmosphere with ash, blocking the sun and plunging the Earth into a frozen winter that could last up to 15,000 years. The pressure under the Yellowstone is building steadily, and geologists have set 2012 as a likely date for the big bang.

Sibyl's  Prophecies
Sibyl's Prophecies 
One of the most important Oracles of the ancient world was based in the Roman Empire. She was called the Sibyl.  She lived in the cave around the 6 century BC near Naples. Before she gave her prophecies, gods of Apollo use to take over her body. “The god possessed the Sibyl. She made utterances in the altered state.    Sibyl’s prophecies where collected in series of scrolls and housed in the temple of Jupiter. They were considered the most important books of the ancient Rome. Among the Sibyl’s prophecies, it was a distant apocalypse. She predicted that the world would last for 9 periods of 8 hundred years each. The 10th generation would begin approximately 2000 AD and it would be the last.
These things in the 10th generation shall come to pass.
 The earth shall be shaken by a great earthquake that throws many cities into the sea.
 There shall be war. Fire shall come flashing forth from the heavens, and many cities burn.
 Black ashes shall fill the great sky. Then know the anger of the Gods.”
-the sibylline oracles. Book IV

8. Astronomical Reasons

Pole shift
The entire mental of the Earth will be shifted in the matter of a day, perhaps hours changing the positions of south and north poles causing  worldwide disasters. Earthquakes would rock each and every continent. Massive tsunamis would cause destructions to coastal cities. It would be the ultimate planetary catastrophe.

Galactic Alignment

Galactic Alignment

Some sky-watchers believe 2012 will close with a "galactic alignment," which will occur for the first time in 26,000 years

In this scenario, the path of the sun in the sky would appear to cross through what, from Earth, looks to be the midpoint of our galaxy, the Milky Way, which in good viewing conditions appears as a cloudy stripe across the night sky.

Some fear that the lineup will somehow expose Earth to powerful unknown galactic forces that will hasten its doom.

Solar Flares
Solar activity operates on an 11 year cycle with the Sun being more active in the 11th year.  The next cycle to be completed will be in 2012.  This is why some are expecting extra large solar flares in 2012.
