Any proper research will point out glaring errors, and I believe some research was done in Central America by universities, professors who are specialized in the fields of ancient cultures. They got the same results as I got: It's a marketing scheme.
Stop misleading your brothers and sisters.

2012 Apocalypse Fears Unfounded, NASA Says
(visit the link for the full news article)
Despite the hoopla surrounding the dateDec. 21, 2012, the world is not at risk of coming to a halt, NASA says.
Aside from that date marking next year's winter solstice, the longest night of that year, nothing else interesting is expected.
All in all, "sleep well on Dec. 21 of next year," said astronomer Don Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object program office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., at a public talk yesterday (Dec. 8) about rumors of a 2012 apocalypse.

The four horsemen: Conquest, War, Pestilence, and Death. These things are only increasing around the world, so what does NASA know? Nothing.
Let me ask you this then -
Just because anything is used for marketing purposes or others may abuse a form of anything for their own nefarious or money making reasons,that does not mean the subject in question is completely irrelevant or obsolete right???
That mindset will only get you in trouble,it is absolutely silly to think just because others would use something for $$$ or whatever that the source of their marketing/exploitation is moot or false.
Apocalypse: An Apocalypse (Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokálypsis; "lifting of the veil" or "revelation") is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. the veil to be lifted.

Personally,I am more alarmed and worried that they actually made such a statement to begin with!
has been previously stated in this thread multiple times and in which I 100% agree,NASA is the last place I would look for definitive truth or information concerning 2012.
I for one never stated initially what or what I do not believe.
I was merely pointing out just because something can be used to make money does not mean that said subject is false,it only means that whomever is using those ideas,theories,subjects is in the wrong and has self serving motives in using whatever it may be that they are exploiting.
You cannot generalize and prematurely state that 2012 is false just because some authors/pseudo-scientists/researchers may use the subject for their own negative,marketing,selfish reasons.
My point is it sounds like you are stating that just because 2012 is gaining money whether in honest,sincere or less than sincere/honest motives from individuals that the entire subject/theory is clearly,simply and only a money making scam.
That is not "intellectual" reasoning,debate or a mindset I would subscribe to or agree with.
I know and realize the scope of this ordeal as you put it,the fact is it is you that is not understanding that there are many out there who believe.not because they have internet and can read.
Apocalypse does not mean "the end of the world or destruction of Earth as we know it" it actually means "lifting of the veil" which I believe many of us have had covering our eyes,so 2012 I personally hope will bring a major life changing event,We need change.
On the contrary you do not have anything to say or to disprove of something not happening in 2012...do you?
That hardly dismisses the claims that the world will change via some awakening or financial meltdown. Remember, the Maya claimed that this would be the end of an era/age, not the end of the world.
"The Maya did not think about humanity, global warming or predict the poles would fuse together," said Alfonso Ladena, a professor from the Complutense University of Madrid. "We project our worries on them."
