How many of you have seen the Hollywood movie “2012” that was based on a prediction of Mayan civilization according to which the world will be ended on December 21 2012 because in Mayan calender there is no date after 21st December 2012. What will be happened to the world on  December 21 2012? Is it true that the world will be ended on this mentioned date? Lets explore some facts about the date of 21st December 2012.

Is December 21 2012 is the end of the world?

The date of  December 21 2012 has acquired global attention and the awe and worldwide deliberations around this day of Apocalypse have been nothing short of an epidemic. The Apocalypse or the Doomsday implies an end of the world and the date of  December 21 2012 is being considered by many as THAT day.

This belief takes its roots from the Mayan calendar, the Maya being a Meso-american civilization acknowledged for their art, architecture, mathematical & astronomical systems and for the only known fully developed written language of the pre-Columbian America.  The Mayan calendar is recorded as a carving on the Aztec `sun stone’ and is, therefore, sometimes also referred to as the Aztec calendar. The calendar has no dates after the  December 21 2012 and this fact has given rise to the prophecy that the world will end on this date.

Of course the prophecy is not shared by one and all and there expectedly are people – from the ordinary to scientists and astrologers who believe that  December 21 2012 will be like any other day and nothing unusual is going to happen on this day.  From this group of people who do not believe in the Doomsday prophecy, there are some who go as far to claim that 21st December 2012 is being deliberately and unduly capitalized upon by the `believers’ to gain either fame or money (or both) by way of selling books, ads, and the likes.

The `believers’ however claim that the Mayan civilization were obsessed with time-keeping and the Mayan calendar has been incredibly precise in terms of accurately predicting solar / lunar eclipses thousands of years into the future. That this accurate calendar mysteriously ends on  December 21 2012 does signify something – the end!

What Islam says about  December 21 2012?

According to Islam, there is no place of such predictions in our Life, only ALLAH knows what is going to be happened in the very next second. Also there are many signs that are yet to appear e-g, Sunrise from west, appearance of Jesus Christ, appearance of Imam-e-Mahdi and many other signs.

What Bible says about  December 21 2012?

Many scientific, literary and religious theories are also finding concurrence with the Mayan calendar.  For example, according to some algorithms of the Bible Code a large asteroid / comet will collide with the earth on  December 21 2012.

What NASA says about  December 21 2012?

NASA has also predicted that the sun will reverse its magnetic poles in year 2012 – en event which may mean that harmful charged particles blasting away from the sun are more easily penetrating the earth’s atmosphere (solar storming).  NASA however has not specified any particular date(s) for this event. As per numerology each number is associated with a corresponding letter. The date 12-21-12 reads as A-B-B-A-A-B.

21st December according to Hebrew Language:

Considering that the Hebrew language is read from right to left, this date would read BA ABBA. The Hebrew translation for BA ABBA is “Father comes / is coming”.

However, the people looking forward to celebrate X’mas and the New Year 2013 far outnumbers those who fear the end.
