In Hinduism, time is cyclical, not linear. We are in the age of Kali, which is the age where man is sinful, and is the most distant from God.
This age will end someday, but mankind will not be obliterated. A new age will begin, called Satya Yuga, or the Age of Truth, in which man re-awakens
to his spiritual nature and leads life to his potential.
There is no REAL end to life. Life keeps on going, there may be calamities and such, but mankind will never be vanquished from Earth.
While it is possible for a calamity such as an asteroid hitting Earth in 2012 or some other date, it won't wipe out mankind. It may wipe out huge
numbers of people, but there will be survivors who under the most stressful conditions in which they live, they will seek out and find God and
re-awaken to their true spriitual nature.
