    @MrsPinkPeony: i think all the crazy weather and whatnot is caused because humans are changing the face of the earth and nature with our destruction and pollution. I don’t think it is predictable, inevitable, or fate though. I don’t think anything is predetermined… things happen as a result of other things happening, not because people over a thousand years ago predicted they would. 🙂 (Just my 2cents!)

    If it DOES start raining chocolate, the world may have ended, because I would believe I had died and gone to heaven if such were the case. 🙂

    I’m still laughing at the word “hootenanny” and I <3 you for using it! I think it’s silly.

    And I agree with this from @sceeder: The Mayan calender only ends on that date because it was based on star charts,and the stars have changed spots in the sky since they made it thousands of years ago.

    i read somewhere that the mayan calendar ends in 2012 because it is the mark of a full “evolution” of the earth on its axis – meaning – there is a “wiggle” (gotta love the technical terms ha) that makes each day on earth not exactly 24 hours and each year not exactly 365 days.  the calendar goes to 2012 because it will be when the earth will once again be at its “starting point” before the “wiggle” begins effecting the length of days and years again. (i dont know if im explaining that properly, so any scientist bees please correct me!)

    its kind of like how our calendar starts in january and ends in december – doesnt mean that the world is going to end in december, just means you have to start over in january again.

    Like @June42011, the crazy weather and natural disasters does have me wondering but I don’t think the world is going to end in 2012. I do get paranoid when crazy things are expected to happen though. Don’t even get me started on Y2K!

    I don’t know much (i.e. absolutely nothing) about the Mayan Calendar. Has anything else they predicted come true?
