Look at what little influence the moon has on the Earth, you think some crap light years away is going to effect us? Don't you know that the strength of gravity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance?
Translation: It will be a weak effect, if any.
The moon has a lot of influence on the Earth. Even though the Earth orbits the Sun, in terms of tidal forces, the Moon has a greater effect than the Sun.
Now the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy has every star, planet, etc. in this galaxy revolving around it. That is billions upon billions of stars alone that are influenced by this thing.
But it's not merely the mysteries of gravity. A black holes' function is largely mysterious as it is, but despite it's overwhelming mass it does other things than just suck in matter and make the galaxy's celestial bodies orbit around it. They eject matter and who knows what else may be ejected from there that we just have not seen yet. To be aligned with the heart of the galaxy may mean something we just didn't know about, because we honestly don't know much. A lot of the work on black holes is theory.

Massive unemployment, illegal wars, poverty, bad gmo food, polluted waters, nuclear disasters, poisoned seas, mass debt, persistent archaic religions that promise divine results on earth for 2k years and do not deliver, confusing technological advancement in sync with population explosion of backward conservative imbeciles, boring jobs, boring lifestyles, boringly BORED.
Face it, people want a revolutionary change. Be it cataclysmic, sci-fi, biblical or mass ideological change, people are BORED of the same old human crap and can't accept that when it comes to their pathetic life, it all boils down to "this is as good as it gets".
People can't accept, alright, that their life time is not special at all in a trascendental way.
- "You mean I'll die by my fat wife in my double wide trailer watching Oprah and that's it?"
- "You mean I'll die in my cubicle surrounded by star wars toys and paperwork and that's it?"
Who would want this crap?!
2012 is an excuse to dream a little. Dont knock it.

There's a sucker born every minute. There's your answer. Some of us require proof and therefore are skeptic by nature, some are just hopeful and require no proof.
