Dec 21, 2012 - Doomsday?
By Rayan Joel Lobo

December 5, 2012


December 21, 2012 - Is the world going to end? This is a billion dollar question today. Is the human race going to perish totally from the face of the earth? Is this only media hype or is there any truth behind it? The young, the elderly and the old, all seem to be engrossed in the mystery of December 21, 2012...Doomsday!

December 21 being the last date in the Mayan long count calendar, prediction about the planet X or Nibiru colliding the earth, rumours about the planetorial allignment in the milky way galaxy- have left even the intellectuals in a bay of confusion.

Daily newspapers tell us of the number of patients who have postponed their surgeries till the 21, the delay in the marriages, the rising number of visitors, in the temples and in other places of worship, increasing popularity of astrologers etc only tell us the gravity of effect,  of the predictions of December 21, on the life of a common man.

What then is this December 21?  Did the Mayans have any insight into the future of the earth? Like many other prophesies of Nostradamus, will this too be a reality?

Is the world going to end?


Mayan Calendar:

Mayans was one of the ancient civilizations (2000 BCE-250 CE), who were the natives of Sothern Mexico and Northern Central America. They were well advanced in art architecture, mathematical and astronomical systems and had a well developed written language. Mayans created calendars and they believed that the calendars were originally given to them by  4 original prophets and are very certain about  celestial origins of their sacred time science. The Mayan long count calendar comes to halt on 21 December, 2012. According to them, with this date earth enters a new ' Creation Cycle'

Now the Mayan prediction in no way clearly tells us that they meant to tell us about the end of the world.
 

Prophesy of Nostradam:

Popularly known as the prophet of doom, Nostradam lived in the 16 century. His predictions about Napoleon, Hitler, use of Atomic bombs, presence of an evil Pope in the Catholic Church and many such prophesies known to have come true. One of his predictions is also about the end of the material world in 2012.

According to his argument:

On December 21, 2012 as the Mayan calendar comes to halt, planet X or Nibiru, a planet found by the Sumerians will collide against the earth( though some say that this  theory is given by ZechariaSitchin) and thus there will be destruction.

His prediction standing in line with Mayan calculations, has indeed added spice to the whole issue.


Indian Mythologies and Astrology:

Most of the Hindu scholarly works do not tell us about world’s end in 2012.However only one advocate about 2012 among the gurus in India is the controversial Kalki Bhavan who claims that 2012 will be the beginning of the Golden age of Enlightenment. The main source of Kalki Bhavan's claim is the Brahma Vaivarta Purana. According to them, all should become enlightened by 2012 in order to escape the impending disaster.


NASA Clarifies:

A few months ago an e-mail was circulated around saying that NASA has predicted a total black out on December 23-25, which indeed caused a certain amount of havoc, taking to considerations the already existing confusions.


Later NASA on its website made its position very clear. Some of the clarifications are:

  • World will not end in 2012
  • There will neither be a total black out nor planotorial allignment, this December.
  • There is no basis for the predicted collision of Nibiru with planet Earth. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth in 2012, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist.
  • All in all NASA takes the stand, that all claims of Doomsday are scientifically baseless.


Zeta Talk:

Nancy Leider, a self proclaimed psychic healer, the owner of the webpage – Zeta talk, seem to be creating all the hype about the Doomsday. Initially the site announced that 1995 January will see the Doomsday, which was later postponed to May 2003 and then to December 2012. In her opinion, the planed Nibiru is already heading towards the Earth and she is in touch with  Anunnaki the aliens from that planet. Thus she claims the destruction is inevitable. She also blames NASA for leading the world towards doom despite knowing the reality and hiding it from masses.
 

Conclusion:

The present media hype seems to be a direct war between science and predictions based on ancient wisdom and faith. I am not interested in taking stand on either sides. Let's take a personal opinion on what to believe and what not.... if that's too hard, let's wait till 21 December, 2012...!!!

hello all, i finished my M.tech from IIT kanpur in july 2011. IITs is indian institute of Technologys, which is top most colleges in india and IIT Kanpur is No.1 among them. During my study, 2012 movie was released and i watched that movie. After that i got so feared that we all will die, atleast i will die. So, i started searching on internet relating to world end in 2012 prophecies and got messed completely. Initially i decided to do PhD in USA but on account of 2012 would happen, i withdraw my decision and i decided to spend the remaining time with my family members. After finishing my m.tech, i did not job for one and half year.recently, i got job in one company and 20 days finished. now that its dec 19, i really feel like what ever happens will happen and i feel now that i ruined my good career because of fear and i am fooled by those people. i want my one and half back. though 2 more days to go.

We are victim of jobless media which is surviving only with hype to get gullible viewers for commercials. I have seen day in out some of Kannada media channels are either creating sensations based on science fiction or create news about temple, money with them and glorify myths and superstitions. They know if they touch any other religion other than Hindu it would be dooms day for them.

The physical world will not be ending as many people have predicted earlier, but many other things like the man-made "idol of the economy" will be getting into a new world order, which can created many other problems in the world.

Dr. Sankaranaryan: I do remember that day in June or July 1961, the monsoon season was started-some "Mystics" from Europe Predicted while I was at the final year of high school. My father got a beautiful shirt for me, and I was deeply depressed that I can't wear that for long.

NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO THAT EFFECT ON 21.12.12. NASA WILL BE RIGHT. FOR EVRY MAJOR INCIDENTS THERE WILL BE SOME MAJOR PRE-SYMTOMS. MOREOVER, ALONGWITH THE HUMAN BEING, THEIR RESPETIVE ALMIGHTIES TOO WILL PERISH FOR WHICH NO STAGE IS YET SET. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN THAT DAY. MORE OVER,IT IS THE DOOMSDAY OF THE WORLD AND THE DAY AND DATE DIFFERS FROM CONTINENTS TO CONTINENT. 21.12.12 DATE IS APPLICABLE TO WHICH COUNTRY.IS IT TO INDIA,OR MAXICO AS MAYANAS CIVILIZATION IS RELATED TO MAXICO. AND THERE IS LONGITUDANAL DIFFERENCE IN TIMINGS BETWEEN MAXICO AND OTHER COPUNTRIES. HENEC DAY AND DATE ALSO DIFFER.IF 21.12.12 IS FOR MAXICO IT MAY BE FOR THE END OF MAYANAS CIVILISATION. I AM A THULUVA FROM MOODBIDRI (BEDRA ) AND I HAVE GREAT RESPECT TO THIS MAYANA CULTURE BECAUSE THE WORD THULU WAS ORIGINALLY FROM MAXICO AND IT WAS DERIVED FROM THE MAYANA LANGUAGE AS FOR THEM THULU MEANS LIQUID OR WATERY. MOREOVER JACKFRUIT WAS BROUGHT TO THULUNAADU FROM MAXICO AND THE PASTE INSIDE THE JACKFRUIT IS CALLED MAYANA IN THULU AS IT WAS TO REMEMBER THE MAXICAN CULTURE OR MAYANA CIVILISATION. EVEN SUCH A VALUABLE MAYANA CIVILISATION AND CULTURE WILL NOT PERISH ON 21.12.12. AND IF SOMETHING HAPPENS IT MAY BE IN MAXICO AND RELATED TO MAYANA CULTURE.THE WORLD IS NOT YET RIPED TO PERISH SUCHA A CIVILISATION OF MAXICO. EVEN THAT HAPPENING WOULD ALSO BE REMOTE.LET US ONLY PRAY, WAIT AND SEE THE DAY AND DATE 21.12.12. MAY WE HOPE THAT THE DAY SHALL BE AS NORMAL AS EVER.

I am not aware that when this world (of generations) will end and my life (a bubble on water) in this world.
If this world still will exist and I happened to live in this world, certainly I will try to make a world of difference, with a revolutionary change. Because the differences or gaps have been widened unbelievably (between rich and poor, haves and have not) like the gaps between high hills and deep valleys.

You can watch the entire episode from the sky and you will be safe flying in the sky until it touches the earth and then like Mayan's everything will become Maya. Genvevive , Why are you worried, do you have a plan to save the world under such circumstances. If the world ends nobody will be here to see somebody. There will not be somebody, nobody, anybody or everybody.
This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.
Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.
Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father…” [Mark 13:21... So there is a chance that the world may end before 21st December. Be prepared always...
Its just like the sudden death which comes to some people without prior notice. Best thing is be ready for the death always.

People who become Maya are called Mayan's. So all the living things will become Maya. What difference does it make when the world ends. All the problems are solved for ever. Every one will be in peace. Mayan's were tired of calculating and making calendars because they had to do lot of work. They knew in future there will be electronic technology and computers to calculate and it is easy to generate calendars. That is the reason they stopped producing calendars. Every year people set up a date and discuss that the world is going to end. Some patients have postponed surgery and the patients may dies before 21st December 2012, and some people have postponed their marriages may be they may change the proposal. When the world ends there will be no more stock market, no more presidents or prime ministers, rulers or dictators, no more banks, the bank notes will start flying all over the earth. There will be no more military or militants, no more police no more Haftha, Alcohol will be flowing everywhere. Everything will be free. There will be peace on earth.

NO! , the concept itself is Joke . But we ourselves can perish one day in death. This is true. The vey Mayan calender ends and starts all over again , just like a new year , so dec 22 2012 will be mayan new year. So lets celebrate it with mayan spirit. ........ But future can be full of surprises and it can happen at any anytime . Specially time travel and ET. But we should be lucky to be alive till that time.

As Antony Dsouza commented, Our holy scripture quotes end of the world! as “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father…” [Mark 13:21]
So intention of our heavenly father is that it is not for us to know when! Then it should be so! We are living in this transitional world! always have to be ready for the calling no one knows when and can not escape!

There is a moral in what Benedict Fernandes has said. Whether the world comes to an end or not, Daijiworld has given a forum to discuss about how we lead our life. Perhaps we human beings have forgotten the preaching and even warning given by religious leaders. If it does not end on 21.12.2012, it shall end in a span of 50 to 75 years. Why? Because we are polluting this earth so much that rise in global average temperature above 6 degrees as Mark Lynus in his book 'Six degrees" has rightly pointed that would be extinction for human race. We have already seen rise in average global temperature by 1.5 degrees as per recent UNO estimates. This is mainly because development at any cost has taken its toll. China for example is establishing coal based thermal power plants on a daily basis. (we have seen opposition for Nagarjuna) But there can be no opposition to China either within or outside. Everything is measured economically. Result : Unpredictable weather catastrophes.
You can see extreme weather conditions breaking all previous records. This is an indicator that the average global temperature is rising. But whom to blame. We have become so selfish that we have no time to think about it. Dear reader kindly do something to prevent the catastrophe to save your beautiful grand children from drowning due to rise in sea levels die of hunger and starvation due to acute food shortage shortage of water. Please take some interest. Do not brush these warnings as bull $#!t. It is real.

The topic on World ending I am hearing since my school days. I used to get scared. In 1961 there were rumours about world ending in 1962 I think. When I heard this I started crying in my class room. Teacher thought I am having pain abdomen. She sent word to my mother. My mother took me home still I was crying. Finally my mother took me to a doctor. as soon as I saw the doctor I stopped crying and then I told the truth tHAT I am crying because world is going to end. Like this there were many such rumors like world ending in 1995, 2000,2003,recently May2011. When we cannot say which year earth was formed then how can we predict the end of world. whether world is going to end or not lot of writters and movie makers have made millions by fooling people. They are thugs who loot people. PLEASE DONT LISTEN TO SUCH MISLEADERS. WORLD WILL NOT END. BE POSITIVE.

John Tauro, M'lore / Kwt Wednesday, December 05, 2012
The prophecies of the Bible which have come true throughout the ages, does prophesy that the world will end but it nowhere says that the world will get destroyed. And here 'end' means the termination of the prevailing evil system of affairs, which will be replaced by a just, perfect system under the newly established Kingdom of God, where there will be no more hunger, disease, suffering or death. The earth will become a paradise and perfect human beings will reside forever on it, because this had been and still is the will of God. For God did not create the earth to destroy it. He created man to have eternal life on this earth. But before this end comes, the Gospel will have been preached and reached unto the ends of the whole earth.

Dear Pasty, You are pasting an easy picture here. Should it happen it will be like eating a late night pizza. When Prior to our wedding we dress well, should it happen be ready to meet the bridegroom in heaven with clear white transparent dress. My advice is just me prepared for more happiness on that day because such day will never ever never come to pass by men’s (evil) prophesies. Evil is that one which comes without the Will of God.

Prophesies like astrology are never direct and to the point. In most cases, people interpret them according to their whims and fancies just to prove their point and that too after the event. Nostradamus predictions are typical examples of this.

Ralph Dolphy Carnelio, HustonWednesday, December 05, 2012
Bennedict and John, if out of 5 children 3 are with negative values, do you seek their end ? So feels God. End will come ‘after gospel is preached all the world and every knee shall bow and confess that He is the Lord’. Gloomy, helpless, weak, sic people ask god for end of the world. Please do not ask, but rather you yourself go Hah!. This I said only to make you realize your pessimestic gloom/doom attitudes chums.

Hi Noel Lewis, There is a simple test !! Can you please find out 16th century prophetic man Nostradam, whether he was from God or Satan ? Satan can prophesy too to a limited extent to scare the people. But he can’ t prophesy about the end of world – God has not told him, Please do not be scarred.

JOHN DSOUZA, USA/MUMNAIWednesday, December 05, 2012
I totally agree with Benedict fernandes. It is better if the World will end on 21-Dec-2012. As there is no any Value for Human being in this World. You will get value only if you have Money and thats all thats the True reality of Life. This world is fully of sinners,Corrpution, Lawless and Injustice. where those people who have Money only can Rule.

benedict fernandes, majila mangaloreWednesday, December 05, 2012
If it happens it will be a good thing. Human race has become so selfish that all human values have faded. Only the word 'Money" is everything and everywhere. Everything is decided how much you have. Then God please end this world. These human beings have given scant respect to your preaching in various forms of saints, Sufi, martyrs, Allah, Jesus, Mahavira, Buddha. No one has cared for your preaching and warnings. God enough is enough, just end it. Let the dooms day come and let the holy rise from the dead and let them establish a world dream' t by you. A world full of equality, no stigma attached, let it prevail. Let your kingdom come and your word prevail. Let there be everlasting happiness to each and everyone.Let there be no hunger, sin, alcohol and let there be clear tranquility.

Antony Cony D Souza, Karkala / QatarWednesday, December 05, 2012
Well written but not well covered. Having quoted different sources, could have given some quotes from various Scriptures. Hence, we go by what did Jesus had said about the end of the world !! “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father…” [Mark 13:21]

Therefore, by vast majority amongst us i.e., Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis etc., will go by their faith and not by Nostradam, Mayan, NASA etc., alone who are unable to prove their own existence. A good article must bring out every facts specially on such sensitive issues i.e., End of the world.
Comment on this message

geoffrey, hat hillWednesday, December 05, 2012
Why it should be too hard take a personal opinion on what to believe and what not? First off, NASA has brushed aside all the claims that were attributed to it. This itself clearly explains that someone’s trying to pull a fast one on the gullible. Secondly, there have been umpteen doomsday prophesies in the past and all of them have proved to be hoax. In spite of all this overwhelming evidence, if someone’s still inclined to believe in this nonsense, then he/she doesn’t deserve to continue to exist on the face of this planet anyway.
