How about a little background and citations of these things? What are you basing this on? Where did you get your information?
We always check sources around here, so nothing bad meant for asking.

Not that I'm defending the theory, but 2012 isn't the end of any old Mayan cycle, but rather the end of the biggest 27,000 year long cycle. I believe it is called the Baktun. The whole thing then ticks over to start again. It is more than likely linked to the precession of the stars due to the earths wobble, which incidentally, changes over a period of around 27,000 years.
I would go more into it, but time is short and I have work to do. You catch my drift
and could be responsible for the extinction of dinosaours and neanderthals.

Does anyone know of the expected solar flare that is projected towards Earth in Dec.2012.
There would be nothing special about this expect this one will be very powerful as it will be a flare at the end of the Suns eleven and a half year cycle which produces very powerful x-ray and gamma-rays but also what gets me thinking is the fact that Earths magnetic field has been reducing at a rapid rate due to the polar caps melting (which happens every 10,000 yrs by the way) and our magnetic field is expected to be almost gone around the same date of 2012.
I just find it strange that there is all this talk of 2012 and aliens and all yet it's this we should be concerned about as I believe this happens every now and then and could be responsible for the extinction of dinosaours and neanderthals.
