December 21 2012: The End Of The World
Since the beginning of recorded time, people have been thinking about the end of the world and making predictions about how and when it might happen. According to a 2007 article in The New York Times: "Gnostics predicted the imminent arrival of God’s kingdom as early as the first century." The Shakers thought the world would be over in 1792, while the Jehovah’s Witnesses pegged various years between 1914 and 1994 as an end date.
More recently, some doomsday forecasters have focused on the year 2012. Citing the conclusion of a lengthy cycle in the ancient Mayan calendar, certain theorists anticipate the end of life as we know it on December 21, 2012. These theorists believe that on December 21, 2012, the Earth will experience unprecedented, cataclysmic disasters ranging from massive earthquakes and tsunamis to nuclear reactor meltdowns. In order to prepare for these events, some proponents of the 2012 prophecy have already begun stocking up on survival supplies.
The planet’s major religions each have their own beliefs about the end of the world, the triumph of good over evil and Judgment Day. In Christianity, the Book of Revelation, the last chapter of the Bible’s New Testament, mentions Armageddon, the final battle on Earth between the forces of God and Satan. The word Armageddon is thought to come from the Hebrew for "mount of Megiddo."
Located in present-day Israel, Megiddo, an ancient, strategically positioned city, was the site of a number of battles. Some Christians interpret the Book of Revelation as a roadmap that lays out exactly how the world will end. They contend that Judgment Day will take place on Armageddon and Jesus will save the true believers, while non-believers left behind will face enormous suffering.
Well, this aged like milk
the calendar was changed by 8 years far after this prophecy. The actual date is Dec.21.2020 with the Saturn Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius. Expect a solar flare or something cataclysmic. Geomagnetic storms already happening
That's interesting many cultures call themselves predicting the end of the world

DIOS - GOD on Facebook.
To create or get more wisdom, knowledge, and inteligence about GOD.
Whoever made such a prediction is a false prophet!
Lord Jesus had said very plainly that no one (yes, no one), not even Himself knows the exact day of the end of the world, except the Heavenly Father.
The false prophet just hopes for his luck, wanting to be better than the Lord.
The alignment of the Sun and the Earth may cause some natural disasters (or may not), but for certain it's not going to be the end of the world, although what's happening now around the world is a sign that the end of the world is drawing nearer.
In a few words this reminding anyone of the panic of Y2K? Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm....
just to be safe you can all send your cash to my paypal account. I can use it to pay off my Christmas bills since I'll still be here at the end of the month,
The myans believed in human sacrifice there was a drout and they where dieing of thirst and hunger.So they sacrificed hundreds to their god for rain. then they would dump the corpses in the only fresh water supply they had contaminateing it undrinkable.They dont sound verry intelligent to me i know i wouldnt trust any thing they said.lol

Beginning missing, no end due to copyright infringement pull and overlapping edits and out of sync audio make this one to miss. Don't waste your time. Unless a better copy is found and linked I urge you to take this off the documentary list.
Mohan Murali Prakash Accroding to your Documentaries and synoptic studies, theologicaly good and interpretation about mayan, I ching, Holy Bible, all the prophecys. one are other macth found , So there is some thing big Disasters may takes place, in our own Planet Earth.
Where does The Bible, the Angels, Jesus Christ, Mohammed,and all the rest of these Messiahs come into the picture? The vaporization of the Planet
will not select ethnic groups to save for seed!
orite i gotta say this the chinese coin and the lines ??? omg wtf lmfao
What these so called theroists are NOT telling everyone is the Bible CLEARLY states many x that NO MAN, NOT EVEN THE SON OF MAN knows when He will return. If you will read the word of God and study His word, you will know that all Dec 21 means, is that it's 4 days before Christmas!!! That's it, nothing more. Now if this theories are bringing more people to the Lord out of fear, then I say go ahead. Make or let people believe it, then go for it. It's not important HOW people or WHY people accept Jesus in their heart, all that's important is that they got to that point. Just study the word people and the truth will be found in it's pages!!! God bless us all!!
If the Mayans were uber pro's at predicting anything they would still be here, survival would be the nature of forseeing future events would it not?
Ignorants, Why when talking about the Mayan Calendar you show the Aztec calendarthat has nothing to do with it
the end of the world as we know is not necessarily the world's end as a whole it's just a time of change
what is all this moaning about it may happen who really cares and if it does so what
why if you refer to the Mayan prophesies, you show the Aztec calendar, which has nothing to do with the Mayas???, Is it ignorance??
These are the "End of End days"
somebody calling somebody having an unevolved brain just may have an unevolved brain themselves
"The end of the world" is misunderstood by many on this site as well as the makers of this doc. The "world" is not a reference to all the buildings, roads and physical infrastructure; it is a reference to the way we think. The "end of the world" is a reference to an end of the way we think, to be replaced with a new way. This will involve our convicting consciences restraining our fear-generating intellectual reasoning. This will replace our fear-generating intellectual reasoning restraining (or choking) our convicting consciences.
This is an evolutionary process of natural selection, and it is entirely causation-driven. It is understood that organisms develope characteristics necessary for their survival. This change is necessary for our survival. The situation we have now is the result of our nature. This nature was necessary to our survival three million years ago on the African savanah. But it is now obsolete. We are going to change because we have no choice.
there is no end in 2012
even if there is we cannot ever predict it cuz god can change that day...simply
This is some ignorant logic. These old ass men are trying to tell me that some guy graphed coins or whatever you want to call them, and CONVENIENTLY matched it up with the supposed end of the world? Yeah...I don't by that.
All religiousnon-religious ideologies set aside... it is pretty ridicules to assume that the world is going to actually end. Even if we were to die of due to some catastrophic event such as a Giant Volcano/Mass Destruction/Second Coming (Giggity)/etc, the WORLD will not end, just Humans as as species. Just because all the dinosaurs died off doesn't mean that the world ended. It kept on spinning and new life developed through evolution, or was put here by intelligent design, whatever you want to believe.
Anyways, the point I'm failing to get at is that people need to stop spending their whole lives worrying about something can't be controlled and start enjoying the time that they do have left on this planet.
Well there's my thoughts, thanks for your time, now I'm off to watch more documentaries.
When the Mayan calender was written, us westerners were using the Julianos calender, we're now using the Gregorian, might not seem very important but the Greogorian calender doesn't include leap years so for the past 500 or soi years we've been counting an extra day, at least from the Mayan's perspective which actually means that we missed the Mayan apocalypse by around 20 years.
Well the end of days is coming, It's happeing and I'm going.Will you come to this event?
Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then -- just as your calendar begins again on January 1 -- another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.
Remember the Y2K scare? It came and went without much of a whimper because of adequate planning and analysis of the situation. Impressive movie special effects aside, Dec. 21, 2012, won't be the end of the world as we know. It will, however, be another winter solstice.
Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.
could this be a fear campaign?
this calender??all it is the end of a cycle,new begins why dont dummies read,reasearch??why?cause there dummies
History Channel's Ancient Aliens is also one of the great documentaries I've seen.
end of the world
just imagine the big "baby boom" that will occur when the world doesnt end...
i dont like jesus
to come back on dec 21 201
