What is Predicted to Happen in 2012?

what is predicted to happen in 2012The year 2012 is only seven months away.

According to many people, this will mark the beginning of the end of the world as we know it. But what exactly does that mean? What exactly is predicted to happen in 2012?

Does it mean the planet is on the threshold of some galactic catastrophe? Or does it mean that the human race is on the threshold of a positive transformation that will touch our minds, bodies, and even our souls?

Or does it mean something else entirely?




The Controversy Over 2012

At present, there are tons of sites across the web that focus on the 2012 prophecy. These sites can all trace their roots back to the Mayan Long Count Calendar.

This calendar is a non-repeating, base-20 calendar that identifies a day by counting the number of days that have passed since the date of creation. For the Mayan, the date of creation equates to August 11, 3114 BCE on the Gregorian calendar.

August 11, 3114 BCE is the date. This date also was the start of the present 5,125-year cycle which is set to end on December 21, 2012.

This cycle is based on the Mayan study of astronomy. The Mayans realized the earth wobbles as it spins on its axis. This wobbling rotation causes the stars’ patterns of movement to drift gradually in the sky in a 5,125-year cycle.

With this information in hand, along with their knack for mathematics, the Mayan came up with their Long Count Calendar around 355 B.C.

The Translation of the Mayan Long Count Calendar

what is predicted to happen in 2012The Long Count Calendar was rediscovered and translated in the 1950s. However, it was a 1966 interpretation of the Mayan Long Count Calendar that seems to have taken the world by storm.

In 1966, Michael D. Coe wrote in his book, The Maya, that “there is a suggestion … that Armageddon would overtake the degenerate peoples of the world and all creation on the final day of the 13th b’ak’tun.”

According to the Mayan Long Count Calendar, we are currently in the 13th b’ak’tun.

So, the big question is: What happens on the final day of the 13th b’ak’tun?

Theories About Armageddon

It seems everyone has their own idea about what is predicted to happen in 2012.

Since the Mayan were such astute astronomers, many people believe that the earth is doomed to end in a cosmic catastrophe. In particular, an interplanetary crash between Earth and Nirbiru, a planet supposedly discovered by the Sumerians.

what is predicted to happen in 2012However, there is no real science behind this idea or most of the other astronomical predictions related to Mayan prophecy. So much so, that NASA has even created a website debunking most of these “predictions.”

However, there are others who believe that December 21, 2012 will not mark the destruction of the planet, but rather some sort of spiritual change.

This idea comes with a lot of criticism. Most Christians seem to believe that there is absolutely no biblical evidence that the 2012 Mayan prophecy represents an accurate prediction of doomsday or spiritual enlightenment.

Many people try to relate 2012 with Hinduism. However, traditional Hindu scriptures do not agree to this linkage either. The 2012 prophecies do not coincide with the Hindu belief of Satya Yuga and Kali Yuga, the beginning and ending of the universe.

Will the World End in 2012?

So, what can we expect to happen on December 21, 2012?

For once, it seems that science and religion is on the same page. Even modern-day Mayans do not apply any real significance to the Long Count Calendar. There are no precautions or preparations being made in the scientific or religious realms.

However, mainstream science and religion has been known to be wrong before. The only thing that is certain is that on December 21, 2012 the winter solstice will occur. Beyond that, we will just have to wait and see.

    Daniel Chapter Nine Corrects the Anno Domini Dating System
     
    The seventy sevens of Daniel chapter nine is God’s announcement that: King Solomon’s temple and the city of Jerusalem will be rebuilt.The long awaited Messiah will be coming. King Solomon’s temple and the city will be destroyed a second time. Daniel is given this vision by Gabriel: Starting from the year the decree is given to rebuild the temple and the cityand the cutting off of the messiah will be sixty-two times seven or four hundred and thirty-fourth years.  Seven weeks times seven or forty-nine years after the messiah is cut off, the people of the ruler will come and destroy the temple andcity a second time. Sixty-nine weeks are completed, the seventieth week is the tribulation period andwill start after the rapture.  King Solomon’s temple will be rebuilt a third time beforethe end of the Church age. During this seven year period, the anti-christ will confirm a covenant with many.In the middle of the seven years he will put an end to sacrifice and offering.And on a wing of the temple, he will set up an abomination that causes desolation,until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. We live in the Christian era where our dating system is based on the life of Jesus.The foundation of this system is:Jesus was born in 1BCJesus was crucified in 33AD at 33 years of ageKing Solomon’s temple was destroyed in 70AD Daniel’s seventy weeks shows us that King Solomon’s temple and the city of Jerusalemwill be destroyed forty-nine years after the Messiah is cut off.  If you add 33AD withforty-nine years we discover the temple was really destroyed in 82AD not 70AD asin the present dating system. If we subtract forty-nine years form 70AD we get 21AD, we know Jesus was not twenty-one years of age when he was crucified, continuing back in time by twenty-one years brings us to 1BC, again under the present dating system, Jesus would betwelve years when he was born. The present dating system has two glaring errors, first, 70AD seems to be pulled out of thin air for the year the temple was destroyed and is twelve year short and 1BC was also off by twelve years. The true “in the year of our Lord” would show that Jesus was born in 12BC (the new1BC).  Going forward thirty-three years we come to 33AD the year Jesus wascrucified and rose from the tomb, Continuing on forty-nine years we come to 82AD the year King Solomon’s temple was really destroyed.  If we count back from 33ADsixty-two weeks or four hundred and thirty-four years we will come to 401BC the year the decree went out to rebuild the walls and temple. Now that we know that Jesus was born in 12BC, this leaves no doubt that Halley’s Comet was the light the three men followed to find the new born King. If you would like to know the actual year we are living in add twelve years the presentyear or your brith date, or historical date or any AD year.  The year 2000 really is 2012,
    looks like next year will not be the “end of the world” just 2024. Have a happy new year!!!!!!!

    The Earth will eventually end, but nobody knows when it will happen. Anyway, the sensible part of the seven Mayan Prophecies leaves us a simple, yet very important message: spread kindness. With this, we can certainly give each other a helping hand and stop destroying our only sanctuary.
