This "2012 stuff" is pretty vague. You reference the movie, which is based on nothing whatsoever.
2012 theory is based on a few books by people like Jose Argueles who did not predict 'the end of the world', or any sort of catastrophe, but predicted something along the lines of humans awakening to their 'potential' and being whisked of to space with some alien race.
Sheesh. You're taking a hollywood movie as scripture.
Indeed, but don't forget the galactic alignment is fundamental to [their] astronomical predictions, if not the focus of it... the Doomsday scenario is a third-party construct, and in my view, an over simplification.

I think 2012 has been misinterpreted and, by a few people more concerned with making a buck, misrepresented. I believe the galactic alignment is a bigger story than the supposed Mayan Doomsday, which is nothing but the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.
...however, the end of this epoch...with all the earthquakes and magnetic pole switching
has to have some powerful force acting against the Earths inertia of known stability...
I submit the Earths core is the 'monsterous' planet sized body causing these events,
and the myth has arisen that a local brown dwarf star or a long orbit planet
is the foreign/alien intruder...as mans attempt to understand the long duration destruction cycle

he knows exactly what alignment your on about, if i were you id just ignore him as he is only on this thread to stir things up or "debunk it" so i wouldn please him in argueing with him.
eta: for someone to say nothing is going to happen at all is a bit ignorent imo when clearly an alignment like that doesnt happen every other day...edit on 20/3/11 by scoobyrob because: (no reason given)
He explained that a type of "alignment" occurs during every winter solstice, when the sun, as seen from Earth, appears in the sky near what looks to be the midpoint of the Milky Way.
They [galactic alignments] create no changes in gravitational pull, solar radiation, planetary orbits, or anything else that would impact life on Earth.
Regarding galactic alignments, University of Texas Maya expert David Stuart writes on his blog that "no ancient Maya text or artwork makes reference to anything of the kind."
ummm hi NASA, yes little me here 4 billion years? did you forget about all the officially documented world catastrophes, abrupt weather changes, mass extinctions, giant impact craters, etc...? yes you forgot that, it's okay, simple mistake, you can recap these events in any grade 2 elementary school book
Many Internet websites say the world will end in December 2012.
and it would of course be the 'most intense' solar maximum in fifty years according to NASA because they only started looking into the whole solar flare/storm idea after Explorer 1 was launched in 1957; also meaning any intense solar flares could potentially be the 'worst' since history, i mean NASAs public records only go back 50 years. ummm, yeah, whatever....anyhow....
oh but wait, NASA also says this on their official website, okay now i am confused...
An international panel of experts led by NOAA and sponsored by NASA has released a new prediction for the next solar cycle. Solar Cycle 24 will peak, they say, in May 2013 with a below-average number of sunspots.
