    Ok guys, I read in an earlier post about the whole 2012 deal and how the shows on are catering to disasters because of the hysteria that the 2012 thing is already bring. How many of you think that something will happen in 2012 and if so, what will it be? I am curious because I am honestly worried a lil bit. I have two kids and like all of you with little ones want to see them grow up and have a better life than the one I had.

    I am just wanting your alls input on this, maybe because I am hoping that you all will be able to put my mind at ease a little.

    My input is that while the topic makes a GREAT plot for movies and hysteria, the world will not end in 2012.

    Being prepared however, is always a good idea. We simply do not have divine clarity to know when and where disaster will strike. Prepare for the worst and pray for the best.

    Could be an earthquake. Could be a wild fire. Could be a bombing. Could be a pandemic virus outbreak. Could be a gigantic asteroid. Could be someone breaking into your house at night. Could be the zombie apocalypse.

    If you can dream it, prepare for it.

    While I dont know if 2012 holds direct significants, I do think we are headding towards something. Too many warning signs, both caused by man and natural disasters, to just ignore. Everything from cyber attacks to Katrina type disasters are all too common anymore. The right combination of events coming together in a perfect storm could make people do things they would normally not do just to survive and I am going to ensure to the best of my ability that has as minimal effect on my family as possible.
    As many will say on here, it is always a smart thing to be prepared. What does prepared look like? Well, only you can answer that. For me it means being self sufficient for a very prolonged period of time. >2 years for us. Every year we add to our ready reserves. We cycle through semi perishables and the batteries on a first in first out basis. This also allows for us to monitor quality. If early dated material goes bad we can detect it within a month to a month and a half and take corrective measures. I number items in the root cellar like a pharmaceutical company would have lot numbers. Fuels get cycled through as well.
    Anything that happens will mean a return to mother earth. To that end, I have plenty of seeds to plant and a lot of area to open up for food production.

    There are plenty of good reasons to think bad things lie ahead, but the "2012 apocalypse" is not among them.

    One of my favorite bloggers, Brian Dunning, has a very good article that sums up the science and silliness behind the supposed end of the Mayan calendar. The truth is that the Mayan calendar isn't "ending" -- it's just wrapping around, much like our year count did during the 1999-2000 transition.

    Here's a quote from Dunning's summary:

    I believe Jesus Christ is coming back one day. The Bible clearly states that no one knows the day or the hour that He will return. I believe the big date in 2012 is 12/21/2012, please correct me if I'm wrong. Will Jesus come back in 2012? Maybe, I don't know(you want to run away from anyone who claims to know) but I'm confident that it will not be 12/21/2012. I believe Jesus is coming back soon and if you don't know Him I highly suggest you take a look at His teachings. If you want to know more, shoot me a PM.

    That's what I was going to say. What gets me is no one has predicted a zombie apocalypse yet. I figured Nostradamus would have at least mentioned something about it.

    12/21/2012 No worries. Aparently, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, planetary alignment occurs about every 4000 years. Well... were all still here as a species. Some believe this alignment will cause severe earthquakes and vulcanism due to a precieved gravational impact of such an event planet wide, but one has to realize that the gravational effects from our sun trumps any such alignment. I'd be more worried about our economy and it's recovery from this recession and the ongoing problems in the middle east that IMO have no correlation with the year 2012.

    I beleive all the hype about 2012 is the same as Y2K was.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Just remember, the current calendar year in AD may be off by a year or possibly 2. Everyone seems to be transfixed on that date that was created by man. The Lord has his own timetable. :)..................markerdown

    And remember "He will come like a thief in the night." I am ashamed to say that I can't remember the passage that that comes from but it always sticks out in my mind when people talk of the end times. No one will see Him coming. But perhaps because sometimes a very few people actually see the thiefs coming to rob them, maybe a few will see it coming.............................but I doubt it.

    I don't believe the hype about 2012 either, but as others have mentioned it seems natural disasters are more common and more severe. I have been telling my good friend who moved near Houston, Texas that he ought to be prepared for a major disaster. Look how long it took for aid to reach those in LA. And now our government is more strapped for cash. Hate to see him and his family caught up in a major disaster and helpless. I must admit that I am not fully prepared either.

    The zombie apocalypse will happen one way or another. We don't need any predictions for that. It's inevitable.

    Maybe it is something of an instinct to know about the zombie apocalypse. Certain people like you and I, and most people on this site, are born with the basic knowledge that in this lifetime we need to stock up on ammunition and supplies to combat the unrelenting hordes of the undead that will swarm the planet in the not-so-distant future. We go through life like everything is normal, but in the back of our minds we know that their will be a war like none ever witnessed before. And that will be World War Z, the war of humans versus zombies.

    Only God knows when the end will come and to speculate on that day is like trying to read God's mind, which could never happen. So why worry about it, just believe.

    When will the world end?

    Well I can honestly say that I don’t know.

    The Mayan calendar as I have understood it for quite some time is simply a calendar that starts over and not a production of the end of the world. So I have no worries here.

    If the Bible is correct and true then why is any Christian worried about the end of time? Sense they are supposedly ready everyday. Put simply as Jesus told it, be ready, and that means all day long every day and don’t sweat the small stuff. (Kind of paraphrased) but you get the idea.

    Many other beliefs in the world have some form of creation and destruction of the world. Largely it is subject to what one is raised to believe. But most have a common theme and that is be ready.

    If I were a betting man I would put money on us still being here after 2012. But sense many people believe this is the end of the world and mankind as we know it, I would just ask that you leave me your money, houses, cars, guns and ammo sense you will not be needing them what can it hurt.
