My vote is that a lot of nutballs will be proven wrong again, but probably won't be all that embarrassed about it.  I'd wager that they just move up the date when they find some obscure reference somewhere else.

BTW, the Mayan Long Count does not end on December 20th, 2012.
There are Mayan inscriptions which refer to dates well beyond 2012.
One inscription refers to a future anniversary of the accession to the throne of the ruler K'inich Janaab' Pakal and dates it at the equivalent of the Gregorian date of October 21st 4772.
We shouldn't blame the Mayans for our stupidity.

Interesting. Didn't know that. But then, I've not really paid much attention to all the 2012 stuff, even though I've heard about it for a couple years. I figured with an American movie about it coming out and all, this might be the time for a light-hearted poll.

My predictions-

1.  There will be 1-2 inches of snow on the sidewalk (like most days in Dec-March) and I will shovel my sidewalk plus my elderly neighbor's.
2.  There will be 1/4 inch of frozen snow on my car window and I will have to scrape it if I'm scheduled to work.
3.  I will consider dragging the dusty, old Christmas tree out of the attic, but I will procrastinate.

Okay.......My life is average.

A Vassula enthusiast (I'm being charitable here) told me a couple of months ago, that Christ is going to return in 2012.  The reasoning is that Vassula is getting older and Christ promised her that he would return while she is still alive.  Wow!  What are the chances that one of Vassula's predictions should match something that is based on an ancient pagan calendar?  It must be true!    Shocked

I'm not sure how a calendar can be "pagan". The Julian Calendar was invented by pagans- does that make it a "pagan" calendar?
A Calendar is a way of counting time. Thats all.
Sorry to be pedantic....calendar enthusiast and all that.....
I might add that the Mayans were counting time in Base 20 and Base 18 hundreds of years before we had even figured out that zero was a numerical digit.

I read a NASA scientist say that all those truly following the Mayan calendar will do on 12/21/2012 is to throw the old (long-count) calendar away and hang up the new (long-count) one, much like how we'll do with all our (365 day) calendars on 01/01/2010.

Gawd, I feel like such a fossil. I've lost count of the number of "end of the world" dates that have been proclaimed by various crackpots in my lifetime (certain Korean sects are particularly prone to "doomsday scenarios"), not to mention "second comings", such as the pronouncements of one Benjamin Creme, who insisted that Jesus had returned to Earth in 1977, and was to publicly appear to all the world in June, 1985. Let's not forget the various false proclamations of the coming of the "rapture" by folks like the JWs and other sects and cults.

Won't waste my time or effort in going "survivalist" in time for 2012.

I once had a book called something like, Why Jesus will Return in 1988. I think the author even had the date nailed down to somewhere in September. It was quite popular in premillenial evangelical circles back then. I may have it somewhere in my basement. Not sure if I tossed it out as heretical, or kept it as a curiosity piece. I'm really not sure why I had it in the first place. I gave up on premillenialism in the early 70s when I had a Bible college professor who cleared up that insanity for me.

Also, remember the months leading up to AD 2000 - civilization as we knew it was to end then with a complete crash of all computers?

It seems to me that we are taught to "watch" which I interpret as "keep alert as we go about our daily business", not to "predict" which leads to a worry and concern about which we can do nothing anyway.

If anything significant will really happen, probably we won't event realize it. I feel the 2012 AD date more as the beginning of deeper changes, but I may reflect a too romantic approach to it!
Anyway, a girl I now is really said about that and has good reasons to do so: her birthday is on 21st December!

Well, those songs are played in the malls, etc, but they are simply popular American "Christmas/winter tunes". In our family, we seem to stick with the more traditional/Western/English carols that commemorate the Incarnation, so the location and season of our Christmas celebration is irrelevant.

I didn't, partially because it didn't really interest me enough, but more just because I rarely go to the movies. I don't think I've seen more than 10 movies in the theater in the last 10 years.

We had the local science fiction club over, the oldest was in the opening night of his high school production of "The Taming of the Shrew" (he's Gremio) and with three kids we don't get to the movies much anyway.

Rev. 20:12

"And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."

President Sarah Palin will invade Kamchatka to give her a larger range to go moose hunting. However, Russia will counterattack from Irkutsk and Yakutsk, and will roll better dice than "The Barracuda".  Grin
