Will the world end on December 21, 2012?

Will the world end on December 21, 2012? The Mayan calendar, the Higgs boson particle and fabric of reality

(NaturalNews) I don't claim to be able to see the future through any sort of powers of premonition, but when it comes to December 21, 2012, I'll offer an armchair prediction that deserves some discussion: The world will not end.But this doesn't mean the Mayan prophecies about the end of time are wrong. I think they're actually right about the ending of one era and the birth of a new one, but it seems far more likely that this transition will take place over a period of time rather than occurring on a single calendar day. (And it may have more to do with an explosion in human consciousness than natural disasters, by the way...)

With the movie 2012 coming out soon (, an increasing number of people are concerned about the world coming to an end on December 21 of that year. A popular website ( even touts itself as the "official" site of 12/21/2012.

Sony Pictures is playing up concerns about the date in some edgy marketing for its 2012 film, hosting a website called the Institute for Human Continuity (, which asks visitors to vote on who should lead the world after the 2012 apocalypse.

What's disturbing about this is that people think this fictional movie marketing website is real, and they're calling NASA to ask if the world will end. Somehow, they think that even though the world is about to end, Sony Pictures is still giving away PlayStations and Webbie cams on their website.

NASA has received so many phone calls at this point -- about 1,000 -- that they've issued a public statement proclaiming the world will not end in 2012 ( According to the story, "Dr David Morrison, a senior scientist at NASA's Astrobiology Institute, said he had received more than 1,000 inquiries from worried members of the public." For real?

Of course, it's a can't-lose bet to proclaim the world won't end in 2012. If you're right, it's business as usual and you look brilliant. If you're wrong, everybody's dead and nobody's left to point fingers at you. But it begs the bigger question: Could the movie be right?

Our world can't continue on its current course Clearly, our world is in trouble. Multiple disasters appear to be converging from every direction. I can think of fifteen critical problems facing sustainable life on Earth right now:
1) The death of food pollinators (colony collapse disorder)
2) Genetically modified crops
3) Loss of topsoils
4) Ocean acidification
5) End of the oil era
6) Climate change
7) Earth shifts
8) Deterioration of Earth's magnetic field
9) The end of fossil water supplies
10) Massive chemical contamination of everything downstream
11) Global financial collapse
12) Threat of nuclear war
13) Pandemic outbreak
14) Global crop failures due to ecological disaster
15) Global loss of plant and animal diversity from environmental destruction...

and there are no doubt other huge threats to the continuation of life on Earth. Many of these threats seem to be converging in the next few years, potentially activating tipping points right around the end of 2012.
