Will 2012 be the End of the World?

The countdown starts today for those who believe 2012 will mark the end of the world.

The countdown begins today for those who believe that the Mayans had it right. That, yes, in fact, the world will end exactly one year from now -- December 21, 2012.

And, for the next year, many will be gathering preparations for that final day marked on the Mayan calendar. Others are planning to spend the whole time partying. According to one news report, travel destinations in Mexico -- where the Mayans originate from -- are planning to soak up some dollars in the process. Some scenarios even show the possibility of a solar burst affecting Earth

What are you going to do to prepare for the end of the Mayan calendar? We've had many predictions before, do you think this one is the real deal or just more fiction.

I think it's fiction, but I do think it's funny that when people make plans for 2013 they almost always preface it with, "...if the world doesn't end I'm going to..."

Yeah, it's interesting. Although, at some point, the world as we know will actually end. Not sure that I really want to know when, though.

We'll have a multi-planetary civilization by then :) As soon as they start recruiting for Mars colonizers I am so there.
