In 2000 there was also a doomsday claim because of a planetary alignment.
There are no ancient prophecies associated with 2012. The claims are made up stories by New Age authors.
So the Y2k stuff was fear mongering by writers and 2012 is fear mongering by writers. In the former the writers misrepresented geeks. In the latter ancient civilizations are misrepresented.
Sounds a lot alike to me.

People are so gullible. There's ZERO proof for any of the claims, yet people still fall for it. Kinda sad given that we live in the 21st century...
In short, yes, 2012 has significance...about as much as the Christian new yearedit on 27-11-2010 by MrXYZ because: (no reason given)
Fear mongering? How much do you really know about 2012. It's anything but fear mongering. The doomsday theory is a misinterpretation. What's predicted is an awakening of mankind, and it is very hopeful.
There are countless prophecies coming from entirely independent sources...Do your homework PLEASE! In no way is the Mayan calendar the only prophecy...wow.
Planet X theory IS NOT based on a single data...But on countless verifiable data that are actually RIGHT
What is predicted is an alignment of the Earth with the plane of the galaxy.
The most perfect galactic alignment between the Earth, Sun and the center of the Milky Way happened back in 1998, but now we’re slowly shifting away from that alignment. In the coming decades, the perfect alignment will shift to another day.
The 256-year cycle of thirteen katuns, the "short count," was clearly a Mayan prophecy cycle.
Each of the 13 katuns has a specific "fate" attached to it and the Maya believed that the occurrence,
or arrival, of each katun brought with it this fate.
We know this from surviving records, including the various books of "Chilam Balam"
(jaguar priest) that were written after the Spanish conquest of Yucatan.
Katun 4-Ahau: There will be scarcities of corn and squash during this katun and this will lead to great mortality. This was the katun during which the settlement of Chichen Itza occurred, when the man-god Kukulcan (Quetzalcoatl) arrived. It is the katun of remembering and recording knowledge.
Katun 2-Ahau: For half of the katun there will be food, for half some misfortunes. This katun brings the end of the "word of God." It is a time of uniting for a cause.
The best evidence is the magnetic field of the Earth doing strange things, as we speak, and most of the scientists are baffled by its behavior.. I still give it 2 months. If nothing they predicted happens, I'll drop this theory. But really, the Planet X theory is well backed.
