What do you make of all these metaphysical predictions for the year 2012 A.D.?

There are many metaphysical predictions for the year 2012.
Some are predicyting the end of the world, and others are predcting some great transformaion in human conciousness.
What do you make of all this?
Here is a list of themm found at Wikipedia in the article “2012”
2012 is sometimes claimed to be a great year of spiritual transformation (or apocalypse). Many esoteric sources interpret the completion of the thirteenth B’ak’tun cycle in the Long Count of the Maya calendar (which occurs on December 21 by the most widely held correlation) to mean there will be a major change in world order.
Accordingly, several eclectic authors claim that a major, world-changing event will take place in 2012:
* The 1995 book The Mayan Prophecies linked the Maya calendar with long-period sunspot cycles.
* The book 2012: Mayan Year of Destiny claims the Maya may have been instructed in their wisdom by disembodied entities from Orion and the Pleiades. Contact was maintained through shamanic rituals conducted in accordance with the movements of planets and stars. However, some Mayan priests living and working in Guatemala assert that there is no legitimacy to this theory.
* The 1997 book The Bible Code claims that, according to certain algorithms of the Bible code, a meteor, asteroid or comet will collide with the Earth.
* The book The Nostradamus Code speaks of a series of natural disasters caused by a comet (possibly as above) that will allow the third Antichrist to disperse his troops around the globe under the guise of aid in preparation for a possible nuclear war, although in the strictest sense it is unspecific as to nuclear war or some other natural or man caused destruction.
* The book The Orion Prophecy claims that the Earth’s magnetic field will reverse.
* The 2005 book Beyond 2012: Catastrophe or Ecstasy by Geoff Stray reviews several theories, prophecies and predictions concerning 2012 and finds where authors have used faulty information or have bent the truth to fit their theories.
* The 2006 book 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck discusses theories of a possible global awakening to psychic connection by the year 2012, creating a noosphere.
* The 2007 book Apocalypse 2012: A Scientific Investigation into Civilization’s End by Lawrence Joseph does not make any specific new predictions, but it reviews a number of 2012 predictions made by various sources, and presents arguments for the possible existence of dangerous positive feedback loops involving solar storms, Earth’s magnetic field, cosmic rays, hurricanes, global warming, earthquakes, and supervolcanoes that may be on the verge of erupting.
Other prophecies and apocalyptic writings and hypotheses for this year include:
* Terence McKenna’s mathematical novelty theory suggests a point of singularity in which humankind will go through a great shift in consciousness.
* Some proponents of a peak oil catastrophe place major events in 2012. Richard C. Duncan’s book The Peak of World Oil Production and the Road To The Olduvai Gorge claims that the Olduvai cliff will begin and permanent blackouts will occur worldwide. Several studies predict a peak in oil production in or around 2012. [13][14][15]
* Some alien-enthusiasts (e.g. Riley Martin), along with some new-agers, believe 2012 to correspond approximately with the return of alien “watchers” or “caretakers” who might have helped the first human civilizations with developing their technology and may have been waiting for us to reach a higher level of technological and/or social advancement. Beliefs range from the extra-terrestrials having benevolent purposes – such as to help human society evolve – to malevolent purposes – such as enslavement of mankind and/or manipulation.
* There is a Hindu following indicating the appearance of an Avatar (God in human form) with God-like powers who will herald a new age. A website to this effect appears at: End of the World 2012.

  1. unsure what I think of the predictions, but planning my wedding for 12-21-12 so if it is the end of the world, guess I picked the wrong man.

  2. Been around long enough to see the fallacy of “1984”, then the panic that set in due to “Y2K”, now “2012”, going to be another no nothing year on the calendar. Nothing spectacular or out of the ordinary.

  3. these are all only predictions. in 2000 many people thought the world was going to end and all the computers would blow up, did it happen ? NO

  4. I disagree with Mal777, so many people have been wrong, who would have thought that we could be talking from this far away just 15 years ago, even this was unheard of. Who would have thought that America would have become what it has, after all, we are one of the youngest nations compared to Russia and China….so in conclusion, I think that this many people could be wrong…

  5. Well, with all of those predictions you listed, one or more of them is bound to be correct. Just kick back, relax and observe the events during the countdown. It’s going to be fun!

  6. seeing as there is a chinese calendar which says it is year 4704, a jewish calendar which says it is 5674, and the gregorian calendar which is the most widely used, which says this is the year 2007. who says that that number is anywhere near correct, it is a bunch of bull crap made up by christians. the year 2012 means nothing in the eyes of the planet, for it is the year 4,247,682,007 some odd years old. Humans think they know and can predict things, but we dont know crap.
    The only thing we truly know is that we know nothing for certain. 2012 will just be another trip around the sun, no biggie

  7. please the world not going to end in 2012. but think about this back in the day when people were saying computers are going to crash and the worlds going to end in 2000, did it , no. and its the same with 2012. All these predictions about 2012 were most like made up by some wack rich people sitting in a trick apartment bored stupid. So they gets off by scaring the crap out of folks like you and me. but that just my thinking.
