2012 Doomsday (End of the world)?

Many people recently believe that in the year 2012 there will be some sort of enormous cataclysm and great shift in life. Some even believe all these changes are going to happen on a specific date, namely December 12, 2012. It is believed when the sun rises on that day, it will rise on the winter solstice, directly in the middle of the Milky Way for the first time in about 26,000 years. The position might cause the usual energy that typically streams to earth from the ccenter of the Milky Way will indeed be disrupted on December 21, 2012 at 11.11 p.m. This is said to cause a great shift in the consciousness of life on the planet and the planet itself.

solar system crossing central plane of milky way
Our solar system is part of a huge disc shaped collecttion of planets and stars called the Milky Way. We are located somewhere on the edge of the disc. Our Solar System is orbiting this Galactic Center, it takes 225 million years to complete one revolution around the center, and during its orbit it moves up and down, crossing tthe central plane about every 33 million years. Some people believe that on 21 December 2012, our solar system is going to cross this central plane (where galactic gravity is the strongest) for the first time in 33 million years. After 2012, we will be passing through the bottom zone, viewing the 'disc' of the Milky Way from the south.

how milky way looks like
Scientist who has been studying these predictions said that the event that probably will happen in 2012 is pole shifting, which would be a disaster to humanity, events such as hurricanes, giant tsunamis, earthquakes, resulting in a horrible destruction of the majority of buildings and other structures.

Another prediction made is that, in 2012 the sun will reach its most active stage in every 11 years, which is called "solar maximum". The last solar cycle was at its maximum in 2001. It is predicted that an explosion will occurred with the energy of one hundred billion atomic bombs. This type of explossion is called a solar flare. Solar flares are pieces of the sun which leap into space, discharging strong electrical currents and radiation which travel outward into space. Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), a strong flare may hit a planet like Earth and this can cause some serious problems on our planet, it is believed this CME once hit Mars and in 1989 a flare hit North American continent.

2012 sun flaresThere are also lots of people who claim that Nibiru, a non-existent planet supposedly discovered by the ancient Sumerians, will encounter Earth in 2012 and cause havoc. The sun becoming a supernova and incinerating the earth and global flooding are among the theories which many people think will cause the end of this world.

In fact, the link between global catastrophe and Mayan Long Count calendar-based prophecy is largely fiction. The Mayan themselves never said that the world will end in 2012 and modern Mayans have shown irritation with how their culture hhas been co-opted into pop culture notions and Hollywod blockbuster film promotions.


  1. i like a lot the end of solar systen,because is very cold and far away from the sun.

  2. The world would not end. As predicted by Mayan calender,but do we really ask what make them to predict such event in accuracy? The only explanation is alien from other world with such advance tecnologies. If we are been watched and guided for thousand of years, will we be left alone by them during end of the end? We will be safe. .........prince

  3. the Mayan and others never said the world would end, that is modern day hype...many cultures have predicted "Time as we know it would change" and we needed to adapt to the changes not try to change them to suite us..

  4. the Mayans made a calender it ends on 21/12/12 its not the end of the world its the end of a calender. we get solar flares every 11 years the next one is actually coming in may 2013.

  5. If you watch you'll see we have been in a solar flare period and it will continue through 2013. The Mayan read cosmic energy and they recognized our Solar System would spin into a cosmic space of new energy as it crossed the path of energy flowing from Galactic Center, since they had no way of know what the new energy would be they ended the calendar which is based on energy vibrations....Learning to read the Long Count Calendar one comes to understand it is not a time progression, but an energy expression day to day based upon Earths expression in proximity to cosmic energy, and is marked by 26,000 completion of the circle of procession past the zodiac sign energy.

  6. did the world end? did anything at all changed on the earth?
