2012…. Damn Mayans

According to the Mayan Calander it is Dec. 21 2012. I am a Christian though, and Jesus said that the day and the hour no one will know.

If not then probably either Nuclear war or if we actually manage to survive, the Sun blowing up in 5 billion years

Officially is when the Sun dies. That should happen in some billion years from now.
As for life on this planet, well, at the pace species are getting extinct… Maybe in a shorter term that we’d like to admit. Let’s not forget that we’re animals as well.
The good news is that some species have a tremendous ability to adapt, like cockroaches and beetles. And hopefully we’ll be inhabiting some other planet when that time comes.

Read Apocalypse 2012
It’s an interesting investigation on all the different possibilities, from super volcanos explosions to the Mayan “restart”.

I wanna stay home for the end of the world…

When we elect a black Muslim president.

Judi's avatar

And when do you think that will be? Has a Muslim ever run for president?

Why would the WORLD end with an American muslim president?

It was a joke. New Yorker inflammatory style.

Like, “the day the Cleveland Indians win the World Series hell will freeze over.”

Because I support Obama and The Tribe

The world will end, when I win the Tri-State Megabucks (NH-VT-MA) Lottery.

And yes, I’m entered.

I just hope that the world ends on a Thursday, because I bowl in a league on Wednesdays.
