If you are not old enough to remember all the dire prophecies and warnings that circulated like a rampant plague of psuedo-facts supposedly divined by
a number of credible 'prophets' or 'prophecies' before the turn of the century; allow me to let you in - there was predictions of armageddon, end
of days, Y2K, and a variety of other equally threatening and auspicious consequences for a simple revolution of this planet on it's axis.
I believe the orgins for the latest round of dire prophecies stems in large part to the Mesoamerican Long Count Calender as in 2012 a large cycle of
counting ends and another begins. However there is no real evidence to suggest the Mayan's predicted the end of the world - or even expected it, at
the end of this cycle. The other part of the origin of this 2012 hysteria I believe is simply due to boredom. It is far more entertaining to consider
the possibility of the immenient demise of the human race, or other catastrophic consequences, than to anticipate "2012- the year where nothing
supernaturally extraordinary occured"
As to what I believe will happen? I believe the same thing will happen that happened in 2000.
