      In one sentence, the whole 2012 apocalypse phenomenon is “a steaming pile of turd” [1] dreamt up for the global woo-woo community [2] for three simple reasons:

  7. QUESTION:
    Why do people say the worlds gonna end in 2012?
    Obviously it won't end, but why do people think it is going to end? Is it because of the film 2012?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, main reason. Plus there is a calender by the Mayans which has a cycle that comes to the end of its 13th repeat - and the 13th repeat had significance for them - but they thought of it as continuing beyond and mentioned dates in our future. So just a matter of celebration for them.

      There are even modern day Mayans and they view the whole thing with a certain amount of mystification and surprise - they first heard about it when tourists started to pester them with questions about what would happen.

      MAYAN CALENDER

      Any calender has a start date. For the Mayans it starts on 11 August 3114 BC which is when they thought their gods created the world.

      Since we don't believe the Mayan gods created our world on 11 August 3114 BC, and the date 21st December 2012 only has significance relative to that date - why believe 21/12/2012 has any significance for us?

      For the Mayans it would just be a matter of celebration anyway - as they e.g. talked about dates well into our future in some of the archaeological inscriptions so wasn't an apocalypse for them, clearly, they didn't even have that idea.

      THE "SO CALLED ASTRONOMY"

      As for astronomically, there are no astronomical alignments, unusual motions of planets, or anything - none of the things that are said about it have any basis in astronomy whatsoever.

      The only astronomical significance of the date is that it is a winter solstice, which happens every year at this time.

      E.g. we last passed through the physical plane of the milky way 3 million years ago and are headed away from it. Next encounter about 30 or 40 million years in the future. And expected to get more radiation when further away from the shielding clouds you get right inside the disk of the milky way. So astronomically all of that is just nonsense.

      True there is a black hole in the centre of our galaxy - at least most scientists think so (just a few eccentrics disagree) - but black holes only influence stars right next to them - and for stars further away, they help with their gravity to keep the galaxy together. Quasars do emit intense radiation from the black hole at the center of their host galaxy - but they emit the radiation in the direction of the rotational axis of the quasar so at right angles to the galactic plane - not in the plane of the galaxy.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quasar
      See particulary the artistic impression of a quasar.

      So - the authors of that stuff seem to have confused quasars with normal quiescent galactic black holes, and also confused the direction of emission of the radiation as in the plane of the galaxy rather than at right angles to it.

      Then they also seem to have confused the winter solstice which happens every year with the passage through the galactic plane which happened three million years ago, and will happen next after another 30 or 40 million years.

      It is very easy for someone without an astronomical / scientific background to make these types of confusions, so it is understandable that this sort of thing happens.

      All the other "2012 astronomical predictions" that I've seen show a similar level of "understanding" of astronomy.

      The idea of a galactic alignment, or anything special happening in 2012 has no astronomical basis at all.

  8. QUESTION:
    In 2012, will a number of people really be in danger and die tragically?
    Will the lands on earth really be at risk of danger? If the events were to occur on December 21, 2012, will it happen like in the film 2012 or will it be much different and not a full disaster like the new film 2012? If anyone has seen the trailer for the film 2012 and knows about the year 2012, please tell me what you know.

    • ANSWER:
      2012 is nothing but BULLSHIT and NONSENSE!

      Nothing will happen in 2012 that didn't happen in 2011 and won't happen in 2013. IT IS A SCAM… A HOAX… Bullshit used to sell books and movie ticket! NOTHING will happen in 2012 that won't happen in 2011 and 2013. Stupid, gullible people will believe anything... This is another Y2K and Bible Code.

      The End Is Coming in '2012'?
      http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/2012-roland-emmerich.html
      Few people have destroyed the world more than Roland Emmerich. In his mega-hit "Independence Day," aliens laid waste to pretty much every metropolitan center on the planet, and in his eco-thriller "The Day After Tomorrow," much of the northern hemisphere finds itself buried under ice. In his third crack at presenting the apocalypse, this fall's "2012," Emmerich taps into the angst of thousands of astrologers, doomsday enthusiasts, and conspiracy theorists who fear that a massive cataclysm will strike the earth on December 21 of that year. Yet unlike previous dates tied to the Earth's expiration, this one has its roots in various sources throughout history including interpretations of the Mayan calendar, astrology, and the ancient Chinese fortune-telling text the "I-Ching."

In 1997 Michael Drosnin published a best-selling book titled "The Bible Code," in which he claimed that the Bible contained a code (hidden in numbers and letters) accurately predicting past world events. Drosnin's work was later refuted, with critics demonstrating that the "meanings" he found were simply the result of selectively choosing data sets from a vast sea of random letters. Similar "hidden codes" were found in other books such as "Moby Dick" and "War and Peace," demonstrating that any sizeable text can produce such codes if you look long enough. In psychology, the tendency for the human mind to find coincidences, patterns, and connections in random data is called apophenia. Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Apophenia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apophenia Apophenia is the experience of seeing patterns or connections in random or meaningless data.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_(film)

    THANKYOU.

    • ANSWER:
      It's the fact that the world is ending and that there are *SPOILERS* gigantic boats that can hold people and protect them.

  10. QUESTION:
    Would you read a fictional blog/diary about a group of survivors during the end of the world?
    It would be a strange combination of the film 2012, the televsion series lost, and the film the book of eli. Let me know if it sounds interesting.

    • ANSWER:
      Honestly I wouldn't. Although it sounds interesting. The idea of being a survivor in a world ending event is very overused

    the film 2012 is a reminder of the total control of the united states on the face of the earth with weapons of climate change ?
    10p.

    • ANSWER:
      Is this a joke? There are no weapons of climate change!

      In the film, the climate change is caused by neutrinos from a solar flare, not by any human activity.

  14. QUESTION:
    in a global disaster would all politicians and royalty save themselves?
    i have just watched the film 2012 and the president wanted to stay behind to help his people i find this hard to believe and i think he would be the first into a safe place to let us all perish what do you think?

  15. QUESTION:
    Why does evry body thing the world is ending in 2012?
    My sister said that evry body said that the world is ending in 2012 and i watch a film about 2012 that show the world ending.

    • ANSWER:
      Only kids, crackpots, and the terminally gullible believe the 2012 hoax. The doomsday scenarios are nothing but wild speculation by the scientifically challenged. The world isn’t going to end in 2012. The claims that scientists are predicting doomsday in 2012 are lies. Don't worry about it. It is just people making money off books, advertising, "survival kits", and whatever else they can dream up to sell.
      There is not a shred of scientific validity behind any of the claims being made by the fruit loops and scam artists promoting the 2012 hoax. There were no prophecies before the hoaxers invented them. The Mayan calendar doesn't end, it merely changes to a new cycle.
      There will be no alignments, killer solar flares, stray planets, photon belts, polar reversals, black holes, or zombie apocalypse.
      Here is an excellent website that covers all the various claims about 2012 and about the charlatans who are promoting it. Go to it and read about the things that have you concerned. They give sources for their information and they aren't selling anything.

  16. QUESTION:
    How do the film awards work?
    Im doing a research project on the film 2012, and one of the information I need to provide are the award film nominations and the awards the films won. I was just wondering if the movie already received any film awards and if they are given when the movie comes out or is there a set date..? thanks in advanced! :)

    • ANSWER:
      The Oscars and Golden Globes are the two main film awards. Those are usually nominated in like February. The only other ones are when movies are entered in film festivals, but 2012 was such a high budget movie it wouldn't have been in one of those.

      And it's not going to be nominated for anything but Best Special Effects. I think it might help to not talk about awards when talking about the movie 2012.

      If / when it gets nominated for awards, they will be listed here:

    Les Miserables: What are the plot differences between the 1998 film and the 2012 musical?

    • ANSWER:
      Possible spoilerish answer:

      I'd have to see the '98 film again, but I do remember that it ends just after Javert jumps in the Seine and Jean Valjean realizes that no one's after him any more. It doesn't go on to the wedding or the visit by the Thenardiers or Marius and Cossette going to find Jean Valjean.

  19. QUESTION:
    What's the point of people surviving in the film "2012"?
    I'll admit I haven't watched the film myself but i'm just curious what's the purpose of people surviving in the film "2012"?

    I've only seen the trailer for the film but from what I can see the world is about to end so realistically there'd be nothing for people to live for anyway?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know really, I have seen the film and there is a lot of stuff in there about morality and human nature which could be why they chose the theme of survival. I agree though, there would be nothing to live for.

      -SPOILER-

      At the end, they do survive, and go to Africa to start a new life, although I fail to see the point in it really, there would be no food to eat, all the animals would be dead, there would be no resources... But hey, it was a pretty good film.

  20. QUESTION:
    Is the world actully going to end it 2012?
    Is the world really going to end in 2012? Im 11 and im really scared about this. I dont know what to do, i think about it every night. I now have a phobia of the night sky. And why would they make a disaster film about 2012? Im scared.

    • ANSWER:
      Don't worry about it. I remember I had this 2012 phobia phase a few years ago too. Think about it, the whole 2012 thing is a PREDICTION, it doesn't mean it will end.

      People believed that the world will end because the Mayan calender ends on Dec 21, 2012. But look, our calender ends every year on Dec 31, that doesn't mean the world ends every year, it just starts from the beginning again.

      Also, the "end" actually means "dramatic change". It is unclear whether they mean the world will actually end end, or if something big changes the world such as a new medical discovery.

      The world will not end in 2012. Think about it, if it did, then wouldn't scientists and engineers be developing things to keep us safe? The fact that they aren't is because there isn't any scientific proof that backs up the possibility of the end of the world. Ultimately, the world will end one day, but that's billions and billions of years away. So trust me and don't worry about it at all.

  21. QUESTION:
    Why does Obama choose to play golf at the time of Polish President's funeral?
    Cause Obama knows that Polish President is still alive. Everyone who saw the film 2012 remember that the line (at the 20th minutes and 20th seconds), The president of US said that "President of Poland, the couple already have on boarding"

    • ANSWER:
      Because of the huge ash cloud that was floating above western Europe. No point in having another national leader die in a plane crash to attend the funeral with the same cause of death, now is there? What does international affairs have to do with golf?

  22. QUESTION:
    Do you think the world will really end in December 2012?
    At first I thought this was a load of crap but now I'm actually quite worried. In the film "2012" where the world ended New York flooded and now New York has flooded. Also where I live there is way more rainfall resulting getting flooded at least once a month and this didnt even use to happen once a year. So I just have this image in my head of the film 2012 and we all die :L I'm proberly just convincing myself.

    • ANSWER:
      So a low lying port city on a river mouth gets flooded by a storm surge and heavy rain. Who'd have thought it? Not the residents of Brisbane, Australia in 1892, 1893, 1974 and 2010 - 2011. And the residents of Darwin, Australia didn't notice houses blown to bits on Christmas Day, 1974 by Cyclone Tracy. How many typhoons have passed over Hong Kong?

      When large amounts of Denver in Colorado are under water for a few days, start worrying.

  23. QUESTION:
    How many are going to see the film 2012 because they just slightly believe mythic Mayan apocalypse prediction?
    I wonder if religious people are more susceptible to such false advertisements. Perhaps such a question does not need to be asked. I wonder though if any atheists have ever felt at least a slight insecurity with the whole concept. I am sure some have but I am doubtful anyone will own up.I personally, am just seeing the film for some good SFX.

    • ANSWER:
      Sony chose to use this hoax (and simply added to the hysteria and fear with its IHC site and commercial) to market their movie.

      If you go to http://www.2012hoax.org/, you will see stories by people talking about how their little kids were talking about committing suicide because they were so scared.

      Personally, I refuse to give Sony any money - I will not buy anything by Sony as long as the film is in theatres (won't hurt them, but will make me feel better).

      And I am curious why you ask if religious people are more susceptible to false advertising, or if atheists feel any insecurity about this.
      All people (atheists and theists alike) can buy into hoaxes and fear-mongering and trash.

    Approximately, how much profit have all Bollywood films made in 2012?
    Approximately, how much profit have all Bollywood films made in 2012?

    • ANSWER:
      Hmm even an approximate number is hard to say, because production houses keep their numbers to themselves or wildly inflate them to make it seem like they gave a hit. You could probably find an approximate number for the year's top grossers, but not anywhere near for all films.

  26. QUESTION:
    What is a creationist that believes in 'the flood'?
    I heard someone say that they loved the new film "2012" because they are a creationist who believes in the flood.

    Does this mean that they believe the world will end because of a big flood, and it has something to do with being a creationist.

    I dunno, I don't understand some of this religious stuff.

  30. QUESTION:
    In the film 2012 new York gets flooded and now new York is flooding!?
    So in the film 2012 new York gets flooded and then the world ends, new York has just been flooded so does that mean the world will end? :/
    How did the film makers of 2012 predict this?!

    • ANSWER:
      To begin with, New York didn't get flooded in the film. In fact it was never in the film at all.
      What I predict is that people will continue to blindly parrot this false claim on Twitter and YouTube without ever thinking to check up on it.
      The doomsday predictions for 2012 are false. See below for details.

    Could the stuff that happens in the film 2012, happen in real life?"?
    i know this is random, and i mean the film 2012 the new film. if u haven't heard of it search it up.

    • ANSWER:
      The movie 2012 is just a Hollywood special effects film with little scientific validity. For one thing the whole premise is that a change from the sun is causing the Earth's core to heat up and increasing plate tectonic activity - but it's having no effect on surface life.

      There are large scale natural disasters that can - and will - happen. Massive earthquakes, mega volcanoes, giant tsunamis. But what you see in the movie is just Hollywood special effects on steroids.

    Why Is Catching Fire Being Released In Late 2013 ?
    Catching fire finishes filming in 2012 so why do they release it in november 2013?

    • ANSWER:
      Filming is one of the first things in making a film.

      The majority of the work comes after it is shot.

      Editing, sound effects, CGI, green screen, soundtrack, dubbing, credits, marketing, trailer, making the actual films, distribution, re-shoots, and more.

      Two years is a good average time from announcement to release and this film is taking that long. It's normal.

  42. QUESTION:
    Is there any geological evidence for the events in the film 2012 happening before?
    In the film they say it happens every 640,000 years. That's nothing in Geological terms. So... geologists, can you confirm my suspicions that it's all pure fiction?

    Surely if such destabilisation of the earth's crust happened before, the evidence would be there in the rocks for all to see?
    John Smith... LOL!!!

    • ANSWER:
      The events in the film have never happened, so the lack of evidence is understandable. Not only that, but they will NEVER happen. There was no real science in the film.
      Many people don't understand the difference between a reversal of the magnetic poles (which does happen but doesn't affect us) and a reversal of the rotational poles (which is impossible). They hear the words "pole shift" and think, "OMG!!! The Earth is going to flip over" The time between geomagnetic reversals is NOT 640,000 years. It varies widely from a few hundred years to a whopping 40 MILLION YEARS! We have no idea when a geomagnetic reversal might begin, but they don't move the crust around, the Earth doesn't flip over, and they take hundreds to thousands of years from start to finish. We wouldn't even notice it happening. If there were any 3,000 year old compasses still around, they would be pointing south when it was done.

  43. QUESTION:
    What do think about exopolitics and should it wait until 2012?
    When I first heard about 2012 doomsday predictions it was very silly and just thought not again. But looking into it, the whole story of ET's, UFO cover ups and our place in this galaxy is starting to surface. What do u think?

    • ANSWER:
      The story of UFOs and aliens isn't "just starting to surface," it's been ongoing since the first "saucer scares" in the late 1940s. The 2012/Nibiru nonsense has certainly increased the publicity, but there is still no evidence for any of their claims.

      If you look at the history of alleged UFO sightings and alien encounters, the descriptions of the ships and crew have changed over the decades, closely following pop-culture trends (film and television portrayals, etc.). Either we've been visited by multiple alien species in succession, none of which seems to know anything about any of the other alien species flying around, or it didn't happen.

    What is your favourite and least favourite Roland Emmerich film and why?
    Some are ID4 (Independence Day), The Day After Tomorrow, 10'000 BC, 2012, The Patriot and Stargate! My favourite is ID4 and 2012. I love disaster movies and they both have good special effects, such as the earthquake in California (2012) and the aliens blowing up The White House (ID4)! My least favourite is The Patriot. It's so boring!

    • ANSWER:
      My favorite is probably Independence Day (I also enjoyed The Day after Tomorrow and 2012)because I like the special effects and also Bill Pullman and I like aliens. My least favorite is probably Godzilla (1998) I thought it could have been a lot better than what it was and the acting and plot were mediocre.

      I haven't seen 10'000 BC or The Patriot

  49. QUESTION:
    When are all the 2012 Natural Disasters going to start?
    I know we have had some disasters already, but nothing exceeding any previous years. If the 2012 WORLD CHANGE and calamity theories are correct, shouldn't we be seeing more disasters/wars/diseases/solar flares, etc ... than what we might see in a typical year?

    • ANSWER:
      The 2012 is just fiction - mainly made up for a movie, and combining together various ideas especially the end of the "long count" of the Mayan calender - which is no more of a "doomsday" scenario than e.g. a new millennium in our calender.

      No scientific basis for it. Just science fiction made up for a movie. Nasa site going in detail through all the 2012 ideas circulating, and debunking them here:

      http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/2012.html

      This is about the film and the viral marketing that was done for it
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_(film)#Marketing
      There were other 2012 scare sites before then apparently, but this is probably what brought it to prominence, and of course all that stuff is just made up sci. fi, for the movie, but many people took the "tie in" fictional sites for the movie to be real, sadly

      From the astronomical point of view there is nothing at all special going on this year in the heavens. A new planet between us and the sun would be easy for us to detect.

      MAYAN PROPHECIES

      As for the Mayan "prophecies", that's a bit more interesting.

      There is a good account of the Mayan calender in Wikipedia,
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_phenomenon
      It looks well researched though you would probably have to follow up the sources to check it out, but just by the citations, everything is backed up by books and citations.

      To summarize what the article says:

      It says that there is one Mayan account which says that the gods created three other failed worlds before our one, which was a success, with the last failed world ending 11 August 3114 BC. The previous one lasted for 13 of the long counts, and the number 13 is significant for the Mayans, and this will be the end of the 13th long count in the successful world.. But no evidence that they thought that this world is going to end like the last one. They even mention dates far in our future in their accounts. The consensus seems to be that it would be a matter of significance for them - like a new millennium but more so - and probably a matter for great celebration.

      Do you believe yourself that this is the fourth of four worlds, with the last failed world ending 11 August 3114 BC? Do you believe that our world was created by the Mayan gods? Do you believe that the number 13 has special significance and that the Mayan long count is of special significance?

      If so then you might be a "new age" Mayan, and if so then the end of the Mayan long count is a matter of celebration. But it seems that even then, it's not something to worry about, rather something to celebrate according to that article and your religion.

      VULCAN

      As an interesting historical aside about the idea of a new planet between us and the sun - C19 astronomers did a big search for such a planet which they called "Vulcan" - the search failed though. In the early twentieth century the perturbations in Mercury's orbit were explained by General Relativity which gave slightly different predictions for Mercury's orbit.

      WHAT ASTRONOMERS SAY ABOUT NATURAL DISASTERS FROM SPACE

      We can now easily survey the space between the Earth and the sun, even from different angles from spaceship - and even from Earth you can see the region of space around the sun during a solar eclipse - from orbit you can easily occlude the sun and look closely at the region around it and there is a spacecraft called SOHO which does that 24 hours a day year round - it spots comets for instance when they pass close to the sun. Photo of one of its observations at the head of this article.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kreutz_Sungrazers

      Here is one of the SOHO images of a large region around the sun showing the stars with a comet approaching the sun
      http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/gallery/SolarCorona/large/las014_prev.jpg
      http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/gallery/SolarCorona/las014.html

      It's likely that there are some unknown small objects there maybe up to a few km across, too small to spot easily so close to the sun. These could be disastrous for the Earth if they hit. So - there is a possibility of danger from space, and there is a big program to try to find all possible Earth impactors underway right now. The chances are high though that they won't happen in the near future - the dangerous impacts happen once or twice every million years (i.e. once or twice every 10,000 centuries) - and before not too long as the present program continues we should know the orbits of all the larger objects in the inner solar system even ones as small as a few km across. That just leaves new comets from the Oort cloud - they are hard to predict, and you only have a lead time of maybe half a year or so to do something about them - somewhat more of a problem but the chances of getting hit by a comet are lower than the chances of getting hit by a large meteorite.

    I am curious as I was planning to buy a DVD of 'Agneepath' 2012. How much time can it take?

    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      about 1 - 3 weeks... on tv the movies are out in 2 months. Also, sometimes depends on the production company of the film... since it is a karan johar flick (a big company)..it may take more than 2 weeks, as they would wanna earn big profits through cinemas. And yeah the dvds can be quite costly too.. coz they are out on huge demand.
