Ok. I'm sure we will all be around for 2013 and the predictions about how the Mayan prophesy was read wrong and here's the new end date.

So are you claiming that it is rational to believe that we are all going to die on 12/21/12? I'm not saying that's what you said nor am I trying to put words in your mouth or anything, I am simply asking for clarification. I am asking for a simple answer.
1. Do you believe that the world will come to an end on December 21, 2012 and that all life (at least all human life) will come to an end?
2. If not, do you believe that there will be some life changing event on December 21,2012 that all of humanity will be undeniably aware of?
3. Something else that you can clearly define for me.
I am not meaning for this to come across as mocking or anything like that. I am simply asking for a straitforward answer to what you believe will happen on that date - especially since those of us who think that nothing significant will happen are so deserving of your derision.

This...plain & simple. Dec 21 2012 is going to be just another day...and I am one of those that love the stories of 2012.
if the doom-sayers are wrong, no harm done, people at least have gained skills/experience by prepping.
crazy folks that choose death over life and commit suicide are another matter, their will to self-destruct would have manifested eventually anyway.
given that there is a historical coverup concerning the periodicity of catastrophic events, especially concerning cometary and asteroid impacts
my point is that by claiming nothing will happen you and other nay-sayers whistling past the graveyard are worse than those preaching doom, especially in terms of negativity and disempowerment
indeed, one wonders what powers of prognostication and haruspication these folks possess, especially when they cant seem to see that they are making prophecies of their own, all the while claiming science, reason, and common sense as the source of their augurys.
what if there is an ascension-type event that day?
