I wasn't paying a lot of attention to the Y2K and late 1990's prophecies, but I'm aware that various channeled entities, along with a number of people such as Edgar Cayce, were telling anyone who would listen that big events were going to happen in the late 90's that even skeptical people would notice. Events such as the map of California radically changing. And such as some of our more spiritually advanced neighbors disappearing because they had entered a higher dimension.
Of course, it didn't happen.
So my question is whether there is anything different about the 2012 infatuation that lends it greater weight in comparison to the earlier phenomenon? I'm not talking about stuff that would cause the professional skeptics to jump on the 2012 bandwagon. Just anything that wasn't part of the late 90's thing.
Is the mayan calendar the main element that gives the 2012 predictions more weight than computers malfunctioning? Are the whistle-blowers featured on the Project Camelot web-site a more legitimate source than the prophets of the 90's? Could the changes happening to other planets in our solar system, and the new seed bank in Norway be a suggestion of things to come?
I know the skeptically oriented will say no, and the believers will say yes. But what is the opinion of people that occupy the territory between those two positions?

The truth is, we don't know much about the Ancient mayans, we don't even really know why their civilization went into decline and disappeared. Under these circumstances, why is there such a big fuss about 2012? Everyone else is just making predictions based on the fact that the mayan calendar ends, but it's kind of silly to put so much stock in it unless there's a reason to believe the mayans were right, which I don't see that there is.
Although if you feel you can provide solid proof, I'll be happy to stick my foot in my mouth.

Do some more research, you will find out more about what is to come.

How many times does the people who believe in this thread say that the world is not going to end on December 21, 2012? How many more times do we have to reiterate that before you people get it?
