Thanks for you reply xnibirux. I'm not going to push the "give me hard evidence" boat because I know how extremely difficult it is - its not fair for me to demand evidence off you that something WILL happen when I can't provide evidence that something WON'T happen. It's certainly a tricky situation.
The 1 in 3 claim of people with cancer is false in my opinion - if you listen closely to the statistics they say 1 in 3 people will be directly AFFECTED by cancer which means that 1 in 3 people will likely know someone who maybe knows someone close who has cancer - scaremongering tactics from the media / government again.
However please don't read that as me saying I don't believe cancer exists and that I'm trivialising it - I understand it destorys lives both the sufferer and their close ones and it's disgusting.
This really is a wait and see scenario - if I'm honest I've had a VERY strong feeling for the last couple of years. It's not really getting stronger as it seems to be at it's peak constantly. I geniuinely feel that something is soon to happen in the very near future - what this is I have no idea and I'm working my arse off trying to find out what it is.

What does this mean? How are we 4th dimensional? What proof do you have of this and again, what does it mean? I always thought that the 4th dimension dealt with time.
As far as a different world mindset, I disagree with you. Humans are still greedy little buggers who love to kill and hurt. I see no overall difference between 1978 and 2008.
Its so easy to say that on 2012 there will be a paradigm shift and a new conscious, but those not in tune with it won't notice anything. Sorry, but to me that is a major cop out.
If you don't have facts then don't bother with an explanation because it won't do any good to us who question things rather than those who follow blindly.

The Y2K prophecy shouldn't even be compared to 2012. The year 2000 prophecy was dreamt up by industrial-age man for no other reason than it being a nice round significant number which could affect the world's electronics. Worst case scenario would have been a complete technological breakdown (or am I neglecting an aspect of the Y2K hysteria?). 2012 is an obscure-numbered year based on prophecies by an ancient tradition and for that reason, is far more credible.
Ain't it funny how all of the dead certain 2012 skeptics seem to love these threads more than the pro-2012-ers!

On December 21, 2012, I will be sitting in my apartment, eating a burger, drinking a Red Bull, and watching one of two things: Michael Bay's to-be-released 2012 movie (seriously, look it up), or the news reporting about end-of-the-world celebrations (mostly excuses to get laid, wasted, or stoned in ways even Caligula couldn't dream of), survivalists, New Agers, suicide cults, and whatnot. From there, one of three things will happen:
1. Nothing, in which case I go back to my usual routine. This is most likely what will happen, in my opinion. After the holiday break, I'll be making fun of some of my coworkers who bought into the whole 2012 madness.
2. The enlightenment of all mankind, in which case I'll be very happy indeed. War and hatred will end, humanity will be united in peace and goodwill, even Britney Spears will become sane again. It will truly be a miraculous day for humanity. This is what I hope will happen (although I'm not betting on it).
3. The end of the world. You know what? I'm not going to even bother preparing for the end, be it nuclear, biological, extraterrestrial, or spiritual, unless there will be some big benefits for riding it out. I'm just going to let whatever happens to me, happen. Living in a post-apocalyptic world is not a very desirable proposition.
