Since i was young i've known december 2012 as the end of the world, (thanks mum and dad.) it's mayan prophecy to anyone who doesn't know. it's supposed to be the end of this, the 5th world i think? and the start of the next. (which actually might be the 5th one, i forget.) i was recently given some reading material and one book focussed on the christian armeggedon. the book was all about how right now, everything that has happened in histrory has been in the bible as prophecy and everything from corruption in the corperate world, to the creation of isreal and the oil crises has been leading us to the destruction of the world and the second coming of christ. It's hard for me, i suppose since it's been so ingrained in my mind since childhood, to give up on mayan prophecy. but it just seemed after reading that christian book, that maybe the mayans could be correct. my uncle, whom i love dearly but who only upsets me the more and more i see him, told me that bible directly state no one but god may know the date of the destruction. at the time, i was terribly upset (from earlier arguments) and couldn't think, but soon as i got home to think, the thing about the mayan's sudden dissapearence hit me. did god end their civilization because they're math allowed them to predict the future? far fetched, but i'm young, naive, and completely out of touch with reality. either way, that's two cultures who's prophecy seems to point to our era as the end of it all.
