id say theres a chance that it could be "doomsday" but its about the exact same chance that anyday could be doomsday. im not worried about it, **** happens, and if that happens to be the day that the world ends, too bad. but im not worried about, ive got a lot more things to worry about.

The magnetic pole shifting will affect more than just a few compasses. It will affect all life on this planet.

We don't noticed it now because our bodies are used to it, and have been for countless centuries. Our bodies will know when the shift occurs. Think about this: we don't notice gravity until something falls out of the sky. What if gravity, all of the sudden, changes direction, or lessens or even increases? It doesn't have to be drastic...just enough to throw things off-kilter.

Think how much chaos that alone could create.

isn't gravity determined by the mass of the earth? I doubt the gravity will change and humans can adapt, animals has been doing it for millions of years.

Doomsday won't happen.

There have been thousands of credible predictions in the past. And we're still here. The topic title is grossly incorrect. I watched it too, and no scientist agrees.


Think about how many variables and different decision you can make in your daily routine that can affect the outcome of your life in general, and then add in everyone else'*.

There is no way there is a predetermined 'fate' that we're all going to fall into by default irregardless of our actions and everyday decisions in life.

Even theologists in that program clearly stated that the bible itself says that no man can predict the future. That tidbit was about 5 minutes before it ended.

Exactly. Either the mass of our bodies or the mass of the earth must change for gravity to be affected. I don't see how a shift is going to change that.

thats not entirely accurate [like a lot of things]. gravity is a function of mass and radius. for gravity to change, either mass or radius can change. if you admit the possibility of geological shifts, its entirely possible to change the radius. but the chances that youll change the radius enough to make much of a difference . . . not much.

unless im missing something. i think a geological shift can destroy our society [and the rest of the worlds], leaving only remnants. i dont see how a magnetic shift can make much of a difference. what am i missing?

The Myans did not say it was doomsday but the end of 'time'
"Time" is somehow going to end or be taken out of the equation.
Somwhow this all ties into the 13 Crystal skulls and their discovery since the 20'*.

meh, think I'll keep busy and look innocent on the 21st just in case

Here'* an idea, let'* listen to the one civilization that had a calendar that ENDED in 2012, but they completely and utterly failed to get to that year themselves.


Watch it again. At the end of the program, they clearly state that while the calendar ends on that date, they also say that it will continue, and probably rotate back to some other 'epoc' rotation. There'* a bunch of Mayan documentation that is illegible and incomplete.

Keep in mind that the Mayans assumed THEY were the entire and complete world. They had no idea there was more.

The Mayan calendar doesn't END on that date. That'* simply the date at which their calendar runs out of named dates, and starts back over from the beginning of the names again. Sort of like the Chinese and Norse calendars, their calendar is CYCLIC, not LINEAR.

I'd actually be worried if their calendar counted DOWN......5,4,3,2,1.......
