End of the world prophecies
Predictions that a major world transition was
to happen on 2012-DEC-21: All viewpoints.
Our predictions for the future.
This web site lists many dozens of prophecies that
predicted the end of the world would occur at various dates in our past. They have one factor in common: all of them have totally failed. This perfect record continued on 2012-DEC-21 with the failure of a prediction based on the ending of the Mayan calendar at the 2012 Winter Solstice on DEC-21.
The ancient Mayan's and their modern descendents considered this date as the ending of one 5 millennia calendar interval, and the start of the next. Many western authors and webmasters reached a much more pessimistic prediction; they expected some form of doomsday for humanity, or for all life on Earth, or even for the Earth itself. Other authors were more optimistic; they predicted some form of positive spiritual transition on that date.
Negative expectations for the day were held by about 1 in 4 American adults, and about 1 in 10 persons worldwide.
We expect that some authors will cook up a new doomsday date, perhaps circa 2020, and start beating the drums in the near future for a new Armageddon. An author without ethics can make a lot of money scaring the wits out of people.
