    NASA put together fairly comprehensive summary of the theories which forecast a "bad" outcome in 2012 for Earth. They provide some scientific assessment of each on their website.

    ...or is it all government propaganda?? ;)

    The Mayans couldn't predict the decline and collapse of their own civilization, yet people believe they could foresee the end of the world?

    who knows? Nobody knows for sure. However in the past, there were people that predicted significant events in the world pretty accurate.

    Considering that hundreds of thousands of people made many millions of predictions, it isn't surprising that a handful would turn out to be pretty accurate.

    The Mayans didn't predict anything. Absence of a prediction does not equal a prediction of something.

    What? The world isn't going to end during 2012?
    Guess I'd better start paying more attention to when my miles/points expire.:)

    I'm just glad we didn't cut NASA's budget for this. Now if we only funded bigfoot research properly we would all know the truth (which I am not telling):p
