As ‘Mayan Apocalypse’ Date Nears, Panic Spreads

Mayan Apocalypse Nears, According To Millions

As the Mayan Apocalypse date nears, panic is spreading as to what will happen on December 21. Millions of Americans believe that the world will end, while others believe that the date will mark a time of change to a new age.

December 21 marks both the Winter Solstice and the conclusion of the 5,125-year “Long Count” Mayan calendar, reports The Telegraph.

With the conclusion of the calendar, millions believe that the world will also end — or there will at least be some massive cataclysmic event that requires candles and other essentials.

While the panic over the nearing Mayan Apocalypse has caused several in China and Russia to rush for supplies, the supposed impending catastrophe has caused an explosion in survival shelter sales in America, along with a mass exodus to a mountain in France.

While the precise circumstance that will lead to Armageddon remains uncertain there are theories of anything from a celestial collision between Earth and an unseen planet or asteroid (some believe it will be Nibiru, or Planet X), or even a massive solar storm, astronomers have done their best to soothe fears.

Despite the attempts by astronomers and governments to dissuade the public’s assumption that the Mayan Apocalypse will happen, millions still think that something will happen on December 21. Janet Shan with The Hinterland Gazette is more skeptical. Shan writes:

“Doomsdayers are predicting a cataclysmic end of the Earth. Well, no use shopping until you drop for Christmas, right? Sorry, I scarcely believe this will be the end of the world. Just saying.”

While the rest of the world panics about the potential for a Mayan Apocalypse, residents in Mexico, where the ancient Mayan civilization lived, have taken the time as an opportunity for making money. The country has hundreds of Maya-themed events this year and tourism is said to have doubled in 2012, especially in the days left.

Do you think that the Mayan Apocalypse will happen on December 21?

    People! Wake up, end of the world will not, if it happens, we did not know, the little boy invented a site kalabashki_net and wants to collect a million to a new year and a half a million to give the last one who would make a contribution, I made a contribution, and I do not care, going to last or not , but a dollar is not much, somebody will be happy in this world.

    It says in the Bible that the Lord will only know the Time and the day that the Whole word will End.And that nobody will know the time or the place when the time will finally come.

  3. Roberto Kimura

    The media is creating a tempest in a teacup. The reason the Mayan calendar ended on December 21 have 3 posible reasons: A) the maker of the calendar died…of boredom B) His job got outsourced C) He got laid off.

  4. Jun Kyu Lee

    You guys realized that the Mayan end of the world predictions were not done by the Mayans but New Age thinkers, movie companies, and the History Channel. Really, History Channel?

    The end of the world would sure get me off the hook on those mortgage payments.

  9. Jim Zornes

    Yeah, and everyone said the same thing about Y2K. Wasn't the world also supposed to end May 21 of last year? What about Haley's comet and the rapture and six other things that were supposed to end the world. The bible? Don't get me started on that pile of garbage!

  10. Joe Briery

    No , I don't think it will end. Remember Y2K? and how people were in a big panic over that saying that the world was going to end then, and it didn't. Two things we all must remember: First, the Mayan Prophecy if you want to call it that, never said the world was going to end, we in the Western world take things way out of context. The Mayans said it would be a time of Enlightenment, which is signified at then end of every Long count, Armageddon was never mentioned.
    Second, no one and I mean no one other than the man upstairs can predict if or when the world will end, it says right in the bible and I'm not a very religious person, but even I know that!

    Millions of Americans believe…. Are you kidding? How foolish do you think we are? This is a case of the media trying to make something to get people talking.

    Fishbone, you made the most factual statement i've heard yet. Anyone who says only idiots read the bible are idiots themselves, i'm not religious, but alot that is said in there makes sense.

    the mayans couldn't go no farther on there calendar cuz they seen obama care was coming and said well no sense in finishing this product.

  15. Daisy Buna Corpuz

    what about you? are you no idiot "saying" that : "peple who read the bible are Idiots"? I'm sorry to say that but WATCH OUT YOUR WORD!!

    The Bible says: Nobdy would know when it's coming! The people who believes in Bible saying no one knows except that only God would know when is the second coming has nothing to worry about. Because that day will not come because people predicted it! God is the one who knows it! not people!!!!!

  18. Michele Vetter

    When our calendar ends we don't have some cataclysmic ending unless you call waking up with a hangover January 1 as a cataclysmic ending to the previous night. If the Mayans were such great predictors, why didn't they see the Spanish come?

    The fact is no on really knows what is going to happen.

    Yeah, fishbone. The Bible also says God forbids us to eat rabbits or shellfish, and that menstruating women make everything they touch unclean, and that you can't wear clothing made of more than one material, and an endless list of other stupidities. It's garbage.

  28. Tomas Portillo

    I guess the mayans got a little busy when the spaniards arrived, they say we'll finish it later…nobody will notice…

  29. Gregory Johnson

    Yeah, something will happen on December 21st,, the sun will rise, the sun will set, the moon will rise, and the moon will set. Personally, think the mayans just got tired of doing a calendar on stone tablets thousands of years ahead of time. They were also probably on the lunar calendar as well, so there may need to be an adjustment. If an asteroid was going to hit the earth, I am pretty sure we have the technology to predict that a week ahead of time. I have yet to hear a weather report saying an asteroid will wipe out the earth in the next 7 days.

  30. Michael Stephens

    Xiana Fontno — we don't know that for a fact. In any case, it's still not a Mayan calendar, thus irrelevant as an illustration of this article.

    1st. the mayan prophesy doesn't say the world will end, it says it will change. whered all this world ending talk come from.

    2nd. the maya calender doesn't exactly line up with ours (they didn't account for leap years).

    3rd. according to the Bible, a much more reliable source, the world will also change (2nd coming), but there's still some events which must happen first.

    4th. it's likely something will happen, or begin at this time (maybe HAARP, a world war, etc) cause the powers that be/illuminati have hyped up this date too much for nothing to happen.

  43. Evan Schwartz

    New Age thinkers never believed or taught that it is the end of the world, just a new beginning.

    the calendar was made over 2000 years before the bible was even a thought in someone's head…

    As many, many believe, the mayans were transported away by alien spacecraft. Many also believe that December 21st is the date that they return to earth. Not the end of the world.

  46. William Wise

    Blah, blah, blah, all you religious freaks are the same. When someone says something just go and see how you can equate what was written in the bible to make your little reality world where you feel safe and everything is in a neat little box. Don't fix your screendoor on a Sunday because you know God rested on the 7th day. In fact, don't fix it at all. Just let everyone else live their life while you look to your book for all the answers.

  47. Anson Bowen

    Go to a New Age thinkers section in any bookstore, all you see is books on the end of the world. Maybe not your belief but I would say at least 80%.

  48. Grace Hughes

    I read the Bible and I feel sorry for people like you who have no idea of what's coming and I don't mean the Mayan end of the world. Repent and be saved before it's too late!!! How can you be saved? Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, that He was buried and that He rose from the dead, then read your Bible so that you are not caught off guard of what really is coming. God Bless!!!

  49. Clifford Holt

    Xiana Fontno maybe that's true, but it isn't the same. they used similar methods but the Aztec calendar doesn't have this end of cycle thing.

  50. Baggy Buddy

    My Aztec is a little rusty, but I do believe this calendar is predicting that on 12/15/2012 it will be used as a portrayal of a Mayan calendar.

  51. David Holt

    Impressed! most people, including myself couldn't tell the difference. Also Is this article legit or like an Onion article. There are not "millions" of Americans that think the world will end. If so, America is stupid and uneducated more so than would have thought.

    This ain't the mayan calendar this is the aztec sun stone totally different.

    The calendar that this all points back to is the Long Count calendar. It's an astronomical calendar that was used to track what the Mayans called the universal cycle. Each cycle is calculated to be approximately 2,880,000 days. They believed that the universe is destroyed at the end of each cycle and the recreated to start a new cycle. The "creation date" for the current cycle we are in today is 4 Ahaw, 8 Kumku and according to the most common conversion this date is equivalent to August 11, 3114BC in the Gregorian Calendar or September 6 in the Julian calendar.

    First of all, when the Mayan's began their calendar, there was no such thing as leap year…thus, doesn't it make sense that if the world was going to end, it would have happened by now, if according to the Mayan calendar…in addition, I completely agree with fishbone1934: "Only the Lord will know the Time and the day that the Whole word will End…"

    Only people that have never read the Bible always have an opinion that they dont believe in the Bible. That shows your knowledge and Faith.

    A guy was seated next to a 10-year-old girl on an airplane. Being bored, he turned to the girl and said,
    "Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

    The girl, who was reading a book, closed it slowly and said to the guy, "What would you like to talk about?"

    Oh, I don't know," said the guy. "How about nuclear power?"

    "OK," she said. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow and a deer all eat the same stuff… grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?"

    The guy thought about it and said, "Hmmm, I have no idea."

    To which the girl replied, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know shit?"

    please tell people, pass it along, that there are no cataclysmic signs in the astronomical ephemeris for December 21, 2012. Unlike the angry aspects astrologers warned about for December 13 and 14, which expressed itself in the elementary school massacre recently, and a great deal of public unrest and harm worldwide, things actually get turned around for the better after December 19, when a key planet ends its reverse orbit and goes direct. so take heart. whatever reason the calendar leaves off after a 5,00+ year cycle, we aren't privy to that reason anyway, since the Mayans had no written language at the time.

    Michael Stephens, you pick and chose from the old testament, read the new testament as well. Your entire argument is erroneous, like you. Read Mark Chapter 7 verses 1 -23. Don't have a Bible, no problem. I'll help.

    Clean and Unclean
    7
    The Pharisees and some of the teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus and saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were “unclean,” that is, unwashed.

    (The Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they give their hands a ceremonial washing, holding to the tradition of the elders. 4 When they come from the marketplace they do not eat unless they wash. And they observe many other traditions, such as the washing of cups, pitchers and kettles.)

    So the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, “Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with ‘unclean’ hands?”

    He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written:

    “‘These people honor me with their lips,

    but their hearts are far from me.
    They worship me in vain;

    their teachings are but rules taught by men.

    You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men.”

    And he said to them: “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions! For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother, and, ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death. But you say that if a man says to his father or mother: ‘Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is Corban’ (that is, a gift devoted to God), then you no longer let him do anything for his father or mother. Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.”

    Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a man can make him ‘unclean’ by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him ‘unclean.”

    After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him ‘unclean’? For it doesn't go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out of his body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods “clean.”)

    He went on: “What comes out of a man is what makes him ‘unclean.’ For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery,
    greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unclean.’

    Michael Stephens your opinion is garbage, and you should really educate yourself before you post something online for the world to see how wrong you are, and you very welcome for the lesson.

    Who said it would end in 'a day'? I think the end is in progress. Humans are helping it happen faster by believing in money and greed rather than humanity and earth. Nostradamus wrote of the nearing of the apocalypse with signs such as; high loss of life to disasters both man-made and natural, only being able to tell the seasons by the leaves on the trees, significant melting of ice near the poles, and more. The earth IS changing. The meek shall inherit it. Will YOU embrace it?

    People are so retarded. The Mayan calender was a lunar calender and thus not at all in sync with the current solar Gregorian calendar which we use. The reason Jewish and Muslim holidays are never in sync with our calendar are due to this reason, thus the date of December 21st is almost completely irrelevant.

    We ALL live ; We ALL die. Simple!, death is going to happen. Dec 21 , 31 or 10 years from now, we all have an expiration date. Worry about making every day count loving the ones in your life that matter most. Avoiding deaths door or trying to convince yourself that if you relocate to a top of a mountain to avoid it , is the silliest thing I've heard in all my 28 years of "Living". I don't create my life around someone's "opinion" , nor a calendar. Predictions are opinions. The only New Age that's going to happen , is the one that we create ourselves. GET PARANOID ABOUT LIVING YOU LIFE , NOT DIEING. That is all. – Tae

  111. Tonya Allen

    Only idiots would believe that the world is ending on December 21st. No reason to call people who read the bible "idiots", unless you have some information the rest of us don't, which I highly doubt you do. Its another scare tactic and we have lived through many of them the last few years. Same guy always cooks up the same half baked reasons for "why" the world is supposed to end. And every time he does, he is wrong. So I am with fishbone. Only God above knows the time and date when he will end what he created. No one else.

    Again, I shall do my best to help comfort those who are afraid and worried. It saddens me th at many has lost touch or forgotten their true nature of the Divine. I can't stress enough unto the masses that this hype is only what it is.."HYPE". Sadly though, because of the BELIEF that many has of this so called end would actually manifest itself unto them that are far beyond reach. They are convinced within their minds that "AN END IS COMING" which actually is "THEIR END". But even at their end, they shall still exist. For those of you that are CONVINCED that such end would occure, I give this unto you…."YOU ARE LOVED BY THE DIVINE AND YOU CAME INTO THIS REALITY / WORLD TO EVOLVE AND TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE ALSO TO WORK OUT YOUR PAST NEGATIVE KARMA AND EMBRACE YOUR GOOD KARMA. If you decide to "END" your reality / life/ world (that YOU CREATED) then just know that this isn't the first time you have experienced such violent passing. You've been through this many many times and guess what? YOU STILL EXISTED AND CAME BACK EVEN MORE WISER THAN YOUR OTHER LIVES / REALITIES. You are not alone nor should you ever be because YOU ARE APART OF THE DIVINE THAT HAS NO BEGINNING NOR AN ENDING. You do not have to sucume unto this hysteria that the masses, the media is spreading. Because we all have free will and shall always, you have a choice to make. You can choose to forget your true nature and become a victim OR go deep inside yourself and ASK of your HIGHER SELF OR SPIRITUAL GUIDE to open your eyes and restore your DEVINE POWERS OF CREATION AND WISDOM and they SHALL DO SO. I am a SPIRITUAL PROPHET WITH GREAT WISDOM AND MY SPIRITUAL GUIDE HAD INSTRUCTED me to do a video just based on this "NEGATIVE HYPE" to help others who are afraid. I done what I was instructed to do and posted it on YOU TUBE. I'm not sure if I can post the link here so I'll just tell you how to find the video. Go to YOU TUBE…..TYPE IN "2012 end of the world and God" or type "BEYOUNDTHESTARS 2012 End of the world and God". Or just type in "BEYOUNDTHESTARS Kaden Martin". Look for the name "kaden Martin"…that's my name. There are 4 videos posted. For this specific purpose, watch the video about 2012 end of the world and God. It is unlike any video you have ever witnessed but it is important that you get a clear understanding of who you are and events that takes place and why. This has nothing to do with religion so let that be understood. I am here to help yet the rest is up to you all. Be blessed….~Kaden

    Michael Stephens , as an educated man you should know the old testament was simply a learning tool for the people God choose. Everything God created was good, but they needed to learn to hear his voice and obey his word so he gave them statutes. The glory was not in what they did not eat for they could not make themselves holy. The glory was in hearing and obeying his voice. Thus, I think you are using something that is without flaw to justify a bias that you have for whatever reason. That is indeed your choice, but at least as an educated man if you are going to reference something present it in its truth.

    I have a theory about Y2K – we have all been living in an alternate universe since 2000. So if that is the case then maybe we will go back to the original universe or maybe go to another one on 12/21/12. Who's to say that won't or can't happen. My response is Why worry!. If the the world ends then no one will be here anyway so NO WORRIES FOLKS!

  121. Greg Broussard

    going2trash , I hate to burst your bubble, but when Jesus came the Lord did not share that day either. People predicted it, but only the Lord knew the day. Thus, for you to think he needs my help, your help, or even the Mayans we would be wrong. When Christ died he removed the need! The trumphet sounded then, people have been getting dressed for the wedding feast since then, and time was measured.

  122. Carolina Renée

    Its true that nobody knows when the world is going to end. I do believe we have to be prepared as the weather and the people will be unpredictable. I also believe there will be some dark days to come and every being will be either a witness or a victim or both. No end of our world, or at least not yet.

    Yep! Agreed. He Just happens to be of Anunaki(Sp?) decent. Wait….No…Earth was already here…4 Billion Years and still going strong. But we did have a creator…for sure. The Sumarian texts are older than the bible, by thousands of years….. The Book of genesis is a copy..almost verbatim…of the ancient sumarian texts. They were here. Our Religion does not speak of them….Our schools do not teach of them… why? Because…No one wants to go through life KNOWING they were CREATED to be slaves to are greater civilation. The earth will not end. relax.

    well… I all I know the long count of the mayans is just the only thing that will end.i don't think the world will end too. besides, they never said that when their long count ended, mean it's the end of the world too…and there's no such thing as planet x or niburu…so I don't think it's the end of the world.

    All these comments and no one has even thought to mention that Julius Ceasar implemented leap year-obviously after the Mayan calendar was done. SO with the addition of leap year then the world would have ended a few months ago according to the calendar. Also the Mayan calendar was for 18 months not 12 etc.

    The calender doesn't end, it starts over: On Dec. 21, or thereabouts, the ancient Maya calendar rolls over to start a new 394-year century, or baktun.

    Here is what I believe! First of all, when you hear the statement…"End of the World"… it's not referring to the PLANET/ EARTH. The bible says that: The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof. The earth has been here for "TRILLIONS" of years and will probably be here trillions more.

    The word world has more to do with what is "CREATED" by man. When you walk into someone’s home, you're walking into what they have created. You're walking into the physical manifestation of what was in their…MINDS! You’re walking into their…WORLD! The same with you…when someone comes into your home, they’re coming into your world…what you created!

    I believe it is referring to GOVERNMENTS and INSTITUTIONS that are on the earth that where created by man and that has all of the inhabitants on the earth MESSED UP…MENTALLY and SPIRTUALLY!

    I believe there will be a new paradigm shift/change in peoples thinking and in their consciousness (there souls) which will ultimately change the world…change the GOVERNMENTS and INSTITUTIONS that are on the planet earth!

    We are reaching a point of being DISSATISFIED! 100% dissatisfaction brings about 100% change!

    So in my conclusion, I think we have a wondrous new world coming our way. A world where there will finally be peace and brotherhood. But…like with anything, there are those who will fight the change because they are the ones that created the present world that we live in and they are not going to give it up without a fight!

    WHY? Because they don’t see nothing wrong with it!

    It’s simply a power issue. A changing of the guards!

    Those in power are not willing to give up their power. So conflict must happen first. And when the power of those powers and principalities in high places are broken, then there will finally be peace on EARTH!

    Almost the entirety of of this comment thread features arguments claiming invalidity of Mayan mythology by virtue of Christian mythology. Sorry, Christians, but one unsupported assumption is equally valid as any other.

    America, instead of relying on old books from mainly illiterate desert nomads in the Bronze-Age, why not put forth a little effort to learn something about reality?
    Something like physics, astronomy, or anthropology?

    Demonstrable knowledge of the real world is a much stronger response than "well the bible says this!"

    If Mayan predictions were so accurate, how is it they didn't see and respond to, the more immediate threat from Spanish invaders, and climate changes? It wasn't that long ago our computers were set to crash with the advent of the year 20000. And nothing happened then either. Get over yourselves, we have lots of more immediate problems to focus on, don't you think?

  172. Christopher Daniel Montgomery

    What about the hundreds of other ancient civilizations that predicted the end of the world on their calendars? Why do idiots think the Mayans are so special?

    There have been thousands of "end of the world" days in recorded history. So far their accuracy is obviously 0%.

    I agree with fishbone 1934. Only God knows. In addition, it's funny that people are willing to buy into the apocalypse matching up with the Myan calander; but they don't follow any other Myan beliefs. How about human sacrifices to the sun gods. No.. because it is just as ridiculous.
