    The Mayan calendar prediction has no scientific basis to it. and it would be superstitious fatalism to believe what it says.

    The Sun, if it follows the normal life-cycle of Main Sequence stars, will one day exhaust its hydrogen supply and start to fuse helium instead.

    In doing so, it is expected to become a red giant star in about 5 billion years' time and consume the inner planets as it expands. Earth may well escape being engulfed (as the sun would also be less massive and Earth could spiral out to a bigger orbit as a consequence of lowered gravitational attraction from the Sun) but would nevertheless become so scorched and barren that it would be uninhabitable. All its water and its atmosphere would boil off from the intense heat,

    We will therefore need to find somewhere else to live, possibly Titan or Europa,

    It is as though we have been given a Notice to Quit by our landlords, but one that has 5 billion years to run before we actually have to leave. Long enough to solve the technical problems involved in the move. The first aeroplane flight was in 1903 and we landed on the Moon 66 years later. Progress is exponential in the pace at which it proceeds.

    So the end of the earth does not need to mean the end of humanity, Just its relocation,

    Re: The Wraith of God

    Nobody knows the date and I would be a fool to claim that I do, only God knows this information anything else would be sheer speculation. However I believe I have found the exact day and time. All numbers add up… As they say do the math.

    What are the odds… That one particular day would equal Six Sixes, fall on a Friday the 13th and the Unix time would reach 1234567890 a number where the end is where the beginning is?

    The End of Days… Friday, February 13, 2009 -A date that seems totally random is really not random at all.

    The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us, how will our end come? "Jesus said, "Have you found the beginning, then, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is.

    Daniel 9:26, 27 "Its end will come with a flood." …The new reign (rain) marked by Katrina began in August 2005, the 3 ½ years (the last three and one-half years of the great tribulation) brings us to February 2009.

    The End of Days… Friday, February 13, 2009 at 11:31pm UTC = 666666

    - 1967 Six-Day War assured national survival and 42 months of travail (in Revelation 11:2-3) signifies 42 years after 1967, yielding 2009.

    - Our calendar was changed in 1582,by the Pope, we are 11 years a head of time right now.

    - So the year 2009 is really 1998

    Note that 1998 = 666 + 666 + 666. Not only that, but if we set A=3, B=6, C=9, etc., we find, amazingly, that NINETEEN NINETY EIGHT = 666

    And his number is Six hundred threescore and six … Note: Not 6, 6, 6, but actually 600, 60, 6

    Why Friday, February 13th?

    Friday the 13th being associated with bad luck. Jesus was crucified on a Friday and betrayed by the 13th Apostle.(Jesus an Apostle of God plus 12 equals 13 in total, Judas was the 13th)

    Friday is the 6th day and 2/13 = 6 and since we now know 2009 is really 1998 = 666. Giving us a total of 66666

    On February 13, 2009 - A celebration is expected as the Unix time number reaches 1234567890 seconds at 23:31:30 UTC. (Once in a lifetime occurrence!)

    If we don’t count seconds, because the clock has not quite reached 23:32 and is still officially at 23:31 = 11:31pm = 6

    That would mean when Unix time reaches 1234567890 seconds on Friday, February 13, 2009 (1998) at 11:31pm UTC = 666666 a total of six sixes.

    The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us, how will our end come? "Jesus said, "Have you found the beginning, then, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is.

    1234567890 … The End is just a New Beginning

    Soon the clock will reach 1,234,567,890 seconds UTC. Is this the correct day? Only time will tell!

    “…so cometh as a thief in the night” 11:31pm UTC

    Scripture states the number of his name plainly so none will miss it: 666. When the time comes for this prophecy to be fulfilled, the meaning of this name will be completely plain to the wise.

    We can find original text written in Greek, Latin as well as Hebrew. The Greek alphabet was assigned numerical values (The X gives the Z sound of Xylophone) X (=Chi) 600; Xi (shaped like a curled capital E) 60 and S (Sigma) 6. (Although Sigma is no longer used, it was) Thus 600, 60 and 6 spells XES, the Greek spelling for Zeus. In the KJV translation - where the name of the prophet Elisha (meaning 'My God is Saviour') has been retained in the paganised form 'Eliseus' (My god is Zeus). In similar fashion, the Name of the Hebrew Messiah YAHU'SHUAH (meaning 'YAHU is Saviour') has been paganised to read 'JeZeus', ('God is Zeus') which later became 'Jesus' in the English language (pronounced 'Jezus').

    600 (X), 60 (Xi,=E), 6 (S) the number of his name, clearly spells XES the original Greek spelling for ZEUS.

    “…and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”

    Again, this is only speculation… But what are the odds

    That the flood Katrina August 2005 the start of the last three and one-half years of the great tribulation brings us to February 2009 and the1967 Six-Day War assured signifies 42 years after 1967 also yielding 2009.

    That one particular day would equal Six Sixes, fall on a Friday the 13th and the Unix time would reach 1234567890 a number where the end is where the beginning is?

    Unix time reached 1,234,567,890 seconds on this day and according to Jesus remarks when his disiples asked how their end would come, he said the end would be where the beginning is. This number containes all numbers 1-9 but ends not starts with a 0.

    P.S.

    More in-depth details regarding the Reason why the Church changed the Calendar and the Birth of Christ….

    Pope Gregory XIII decreed that all Catholic countries would drop the 10 days that had been October 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14, go straight from October 4 to 15, and henceforth omit the leap years in century years except those divisible by 400. adopted the new Gregorian calendar in 1582. By the late 1600s, the Swedes were still using the old Julian calendar, but they had begun to think that maybe they should join Protestant Germany and the other Scandinavian countries in a turn-of-the-century conversion to the Gregorian. About then, however, someone in Sweden had the brilliant idea that if they merely skipped the next 11 leap years, they wouldn’t have to drop 10 days all at once, and they’d be fully converted to the Gregorian calendar by 1740. Thus we are 11 years ahead of schedule…

    In 46BC, when the Roman "Julian" calendar was adopted, December 24th. was the shortest day of the year. Therefore, December 25th. was the first day of the year that the days started to get longer. Thus, the REBIRTH (Annual Birthday) of the SUN. In 1582 Catholic Pope Gregory 13th caused the present day "Gregorian" calendar to be adopted. By this time the shortest day of the year on the Julian calendar had shifted 10 days to the 15th of December, but the original December 25th "Birthdate" was retained for all Sun gods.

    The Church spread the word of Jesus to the Celtics. The day the church celebrates the birth of Jesus was changed to a pagan holy day of the Celtics to convert more followers. Jesus was said to be born in the Spring.

    Nobody (credible) ever said the world would end in 2012! At least nobody other a few new-age freaks. They are looking at the fact that the ancient Mayan calendar finishes on Dec 23rd 2012 and presuming that this must be the end of the world. Um... why? The Mayans in no way describe that as being the end of the world. It is merely when their calendar runs out. These alarmist new age freaks are the same people who think crop circles are made by aliens. Yeah, I can give them the phone numbers of some of those aliens in the UK!

    Everybody knows that the world will end at midnight on New Years Eve in 1999!

    In the 70s, a great many very studious people believed that the Earth would enter its biblical endgame in the late 80s, because that would be 'one generation after the reformation of Israel' as allegedly predicted in the Bible.

    A few ppl did genuinely believe the world would end at Millennium.

    So... even if it's curtains time in 2012, don't stop your pension payments or sell off your stuff cheap.. plan on being around for longer - JUST in case, ok..?

    All that is according to the ancient Mayans. Their Calendar says that the world will end in 2012. That doesn't actually mean that it will. The fact is that nobody (except God) knows when the world will end and the best thing to do is not even worry about it. Hope this helps.

    The world will not end in 2012. That is just one more false prediction of the end of the world. It will not come true any more than the countless other similar predictions did. The world will not last forever, but it will last WAY longer than 6 more years.

    No one TRULY knows when the "end of the world" is going to happen. Technically, it is improbable that the world will "end" ever. Matter (according to our current scientific laws) can not cease to exist. However, it can change forms. I think what we'll see (as a race) is a massive change on this planet but not really for 100+ years. By then, we'll be colonizing other planets and the moon.

    Slainte,

    I've heard similar rumors.

    I don't know whether the world will 'end' in 2012, but if you look at how history has been progressing, you can bet something really really messed up & crazy is going to happen between now and then!

    It's already happened. The end of the world came a long time ago. Nobody knows when the world is going to blow up. It depends on how much longer we continue to abuse Earth, and pollute ourselves. When we start to think about the effects of our actions, then the end of the world will begin to slow down.

    I don't know where you got your information from 2012,but if you read the Bible;King James version,it says;"The Lord will come like a thief in the night" no one knows when the world is going to end!It could end right this very second!
