2012: The Extinction Of Humanity?





By: Style of Conscience

Everyone hears about the different prophecies on how humanity will end. From the Bible predictions of the rapture and the Antichrist, to Nostradamus’s prediction of the Planet Comet, people hear theories and see evidence of our civilization coming to an end. However, the most striking of these prophecies lies in the predictions of an ancient, but highly sophisticated Mayan calender. The deciphering and understanding of the calender is whole other story in it’s own, so I’ll get straight to the point…

The Mayan calender actually is a combination of 3 calenders. The religious calender, the solar calender, and the Long Count. For the sake of this discussion, i wont get into detail about the whole calender and just stick to the Long Count. The Long Count can record any day in history because it is supposedly the measure of days from the beginning of humanity to the end.

The number system used for the Long Count is completely different than our decimal, 10 based number system. Instead, the Mayans used 5 sets of numbers separated with a decimal. A typical Long Count number would look like this:

The first day of the Long Count is labeled which is the equivalent to August 11th, 3114 BC. on our current Gregorian Calender. The Long Count calender ends at which is the equivalent to December 21, 2012. Now this doesn’t necessarily mean that humanity will come to an end on this date, but it is the date when the calender ends.

But who cares what an ancient civilization thinks? They didn’t have any of the scientific knowledge, nor did they have any of the technology that we have now. Why should we be worried? Let’s look at this date from a scientific point of view.

First of all, every 11 years our Sun goes through what’s called a solar cycle (pole shift, magnetic reversal). During the peak time of the cycle, the Sun’s magnetic poles switch. The magnetic field of the Sun does a 180. But remember, this is a 180 degree magnetic flip. The physical part of Sun doesn’t actually flip. Anyway, during the peak time of this “flip” sunspots and solar flares become more frequent. This is what’s called the “solar maximum”.


Solar flares are pieces of the sun which
leap into space, discharging radiation
and strong electrical currents that travel outward into space. They often fall back to the surface of the Sun. Sometimes, a very strong flare, called a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), actually leaves the Sun and this deadly mass shoots out from the Sun towards the planets like a bullet. Usually they don’t hit anything but occasionally they hit a planet like Earth. Most flares are small. But even a small flare can be dangerous. In 1989 a flare hit the North American continent and fried electric lines, zapped power grids in the US and Canada, and created large power blackouts. Flares can also effect our moods and physical health. In theory, a large flare impacting the Earth could zap the
ionosphere and irradiate the surface,
killing every living organism that it touched.

During early 2001, the Sun’s solar cycle was completed and the Sun switched magnetic poles, so the Sun is due for another cycle in the year 2012.

Well, who cares if the Sun flips again? it flips every 11 years so why should should the next flip be any different?

The solar cycle of 2012 is more significant than any other for several reasons:

1. During this time the two biggest planets in our solar system, Saturn and Jupiter, will be in line with each other. The gravitational effects of the two planets on the Sun will cause it to wobble during it’s pole shift. This can have huge effects on the magnitude of the CME’s the Sun will be tossing into space. The Earth regularly gets hit with small CME’s and research says that the increased magnitude of these CME’s are one of the major causes of global warming, and changes in the ecosystem.

2. Right now the Sun’s south magnetic pole is in line with the Earth’s north magnetic pole. Since opposites attract, the Sun, along with it’s gravitational influence from Saturn and Jupiter, may cause the Earth to switch magnetic poles too! With the magnetic field of the Earth switching in a matter of minutes, there can be huge disruptions in the Earth’s geological and ecological system. It can cause mass earthquakes and volcano eruptions all over the world. After it’s all done, compasses will point South, the Sun will rise in the West and set in the East. But remember, this is a magnetic switch only.

3. The most far fetched possibility and probably the most catastrophic is the phenomenon called “polar wander”. Polar wander is a result of the Earth’s outer crust shifting at a rapid rate. The magnetic poles stay put but Antarctica becomes the equator and the tropics become the North Pole. I really don’t have to stress why a polar wander could be catastrophic because if you picture a phenomenon like this happening in a matter of minutes, you can understand why. There is evidence of a polar wander occurring before in the distant past due to the fossils of Coral in Greenland and Woolly Mammoth bones found in Central America. Of course, in order for a polar wander to occur, it would take a huge amount of imbalance, like an asteroid collision, in the Earth to trigger it. I read an article about polar wander on www.about.com and the first paragraph is a good example of what it would be like:

“It’s a balmy July weekend. The cicadas are buzzing in the trees as you flip hamburgers on the grill for a Saturday afternoon cookout. The kids are splashing and laughing in the pool, trying to keep cool in the 92-degree heat. Suddenly the air is still. The cicadas fall silent. A moment later the ground beneath you starts to rumble and shake. The kids stop their playing as they notice the water in the pool getting choppy. The intensity of the quake increases and you are knocked off your feet. The kids scramble out of the pool, screaming as water sloshes in waves onto the surrounding deck. A fierce wind races over you as you lie on your back on the shaking ground. You try to hold on to something… anything, feeling as if you’re going to fly off the face of the earth itself. The sky and clouds are boiling above the violently swaying trees. Birds are being tossed around chaotically as they struggle to fly. Shadows darken and lengthen, and you watch the sun speeding across the sky to the horizon. The shaking stops in an instant and there’s an eerie silence, broken only by the sobs of the frightened children. The day has turned to twilight. In a matter of seconds the sun has shifted from its high noon position to just a few degrees above the horizon in the southwest. A bitter, cold wind blows in… and it begins to snow.”

4. The final event that will occur on December 21, 2012 will be at 11:12 GMT. It’s a phenomenon that the Mayans referred to as the “Sacred Tree” and it happens every 25,800 years. At that time our Sun will line up directly with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. For thousands of years, our solar system has been hovering around the top of the galactic plane and this galactic alignment could have huge effects on our solar system.


The ecliptic cross over the Milky Way at a 60 degree angle near the constellation Sagittarius. As such, it forms a cross with the Milky Way, and this cosmic cross was called the Sacred Tree by the ancient Maya. (The cross form was also known as the “crossroads.” Amazingly, the center of this cosmic cross, that is right where the ecliptic crosses over the Milky Way is exactly where the December solstice sun will be in A.D. 2012. This alignment occurs only once every 25,800 years.

There is supposedly a black hole in the middle of the Milky Way holding everything together. Our solar system is around the outer edge of the disc. When our solar system lines up with center of the galaxy, we will be at the strongest part of the galaxy’s magnetic field where there is maximum gravitation. So, with the Sun’s solar cycle being at it’s maximum, the alignment of Saturn and Jupiter, and the alignment of the sun with the equator of the Milky Way, this will REALLY cause an increase in the magnitude of the Sun’s solar flares. Of course the gravitational complexities will also have an influence on whether or not the Earth will undergo a magnetic pole shift. There is also speculation that the Earth may reverse its rotation since we’ll be in the opposite hemisphere of the galaxy!


According to the Mayas
the center of the Galaxy is the cosmic womb: the place of dead, transformation, regeneration and rebirth. This moment shows the end of their calendar.

There are a lot of questions that will be answered in the year 2012. Although the Mayan calender has a mystery on a specific date, some of the scientific complexities will gradually become observable. Depletion of the ozone, increase in volcanic activity, and changes in weather patterns are all natural results of some of the events explained. However, whether or not the Mayans had some sort of insight into the future will remain a mystery.

  1. Well,lets just hope it’s not no 3!! or we are in deep shit..

  2. marvin depression

    The mice don’t need us anymore anyway.

    So what’s the use?.

    Yours truly

    Marvin the Depressed Robot

  3. well way u go do ….u can’t do not to stop it if it happning..

  4. So ur saying that the world may well end in 2012?
    man I’m scared

  5. I would not agree that 2012 is the end of the world, and that our species will extinct, but rather 2012 is the end of times, a new beginning, a gateway into the fourth dimensional world. It is indeed a very big celebration once we get through 2012, the start of the age many of our wise ancestors call the golden age of humanity.
    But so, the bad news might be that the earth is undergoing rapid purification of itself, many disasters will befall upon humanity between the present year until that year of 2012. Much of the human population will be wiped out that only very few are left to witness that golden new age.
    This 2012 issue have many aspects to investigate further, but what is more important is to understand it, not to fear it.
    Hope to see you guys on the other side

  6. I am feeling priviliged by the fact that i am going to witness the death of world..death of our time..we accepted the death of our dear ones in the past as nature.we shuld accept the death of our dear old earth and eventually ourselves in the same way..i feel nothing to panic..just enjoy the inevitable and witness how the clock clicksthe last time (atleast for life on earth…)..hope we find extrra terrestrial life before we leave our home and go with the wind with one thing in our mind — life will exist in our universe somewhere, may be a 100 thousand light years away…forever till the death of time…which will not definitely happen…..so ppl go and populate as much as u can and leave maximum chance for humans to survive..i am really thrilled to see happy and prosperous new year 2012

  7. I’ve been reading a lot about this recently
    I have to say this article is the best I have read, most other articles are over-paranoid and skip past the scientific facts.
    this article displays all the relevant information in an easy-to-digest way.

    interesting yet terrifying

  8. Is there nothing to stop it or prevent our green earth

  9. I told my father i ‘ll not die.he asked me why?.i told ,’ At any circumstances i’ll breathe hard.I’ve 2 practice it till 2012.U also try…

  10. Is this the total destruction of the human race? or is there a way to prepare and survive? I thought 2012 would be the end but yet a new begining. A weeding of the weak so to speak. Cleansing away of all the destruction and chaos we have brought upon us and starting fresh with a new chance to get it right.

  11. Now my friends, my heart is at the beginning of the indictment of a matter. Some of you may have been, or become aware of all the speculation and/or end time prediction regarding the 2012 year, ie; Mayan calender, Edgar Casey, Nostradamus, Pope Malachy, I Ching, NASA, Albert Einstein, and Revelation, etc. My friends after taking in all this information regarding this 2012 date, and holding it within the light of the Word of God, it does not fail in agreement with things Divinely Celestial, Spiritual, and natural. From my limited studies of the mind and it’s workings, and it’s place of relevance to the being of our souls wrapping unto it the flesh for temporal uses unto purpose of cognizance, being receptive of the Eternal Life source unto life living. I do see how there very well could be a universal awakening, whereby a rapture at the good pleasure of our Lord Jesus Christ would be made possible. Yes my friends, as written by the Apostle Paul:
    1 Corinthians 15:51-53 (King James Version)
     51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
     52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
     53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
    Yes my friends, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, all could be changed. Here is how I truly believe it’d occur, everyone in the world are either believers or nonbelievers. Some are in good ways, charitable ways, and live rightly with all. Others are in evil ways, and live selfishly only, in constant states of hatred and manipulation of others. These cause all who are not in agreement with them to suffer and die, marking their souls with the 666 mark of the beast unto that Holy Bible Revelation of the 2nd death. Now as we approach the approximation of the 2012 date, and all the predictions holding true, then those forces and powers by which our minds are receptive of reasoning would increase tenfold. And for those whose minds are turning inward or upward to Heavenly lives living, they’ll be translated into the Spiritual realm of absolute paradise. I know this is so, just like Jesus shown unto His disciples about 2,000 years ago. And for those who are in ways evil and lying, whose minds are turned in downward spiraling into the abyss, they’ll be peering into the throat of hell, with terror unspeakable. This is like unto that parable spoken by Lord Jesus of His generation for to come in ours: KJV, Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
     25But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
     26But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
     27So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
     28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
     29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
     30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn….
    36Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
     37He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
    38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
     39The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
     40As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
     41The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
     42And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
     43Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
    My friends, the sheep and goats will be so totally separately. This could all happen as one day as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Lord Jesus taught: We may not know the day nor hour but it was our duty to be aware of the times. We are instructed by our Lord Jesus to be ready and watching, like unto the 10 virgins, five with oil for their lamps and five without. Also it is like unto those whom the Master gave unto His servants five, two, and one talent to utilize while He was away. The servants with five and two talents doubled their amounts, but the one with one buried his. When the Master returned he awarded the productive servants with being over much in His Kingdom, and took that from the unproductive servant, and gave it unto him with the 10 talents. And sent away the unproductive servant into utter darkness where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    Actual verses: Matthew 25: 14For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
     15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
     16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
     17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
     18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.
     19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
     20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
     21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
     22He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
     23His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
     24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
     25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
     26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
     27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
     28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
     29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
     30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
     31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
     32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
     33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
     34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
     35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
     36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
     37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
     38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
     39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
     40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
     41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
     42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
     43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
     44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
     45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
     46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
    It will be this way in 2012 when enlightenment reaches it’s zenith. And who today is not becoming more and more cognizant of the world being in the days of Noah? Thank you Lord Jesus Selah


    • Your comment is long but also confusing and leaves out one important fact: our goodness is not enough to be acceptable in the presence of a holy God. He is loving but also just. His justice demands a price for the sin that is in all of us. His love provided that through the death of His Son Jesus. All who accept Jesus as their ‘scapegoat’ will have entrance in the kingdom of light. Because Jesus rose from the dead we, who believe in Him, will also live. And live forever in a whole made new by Him.

  12. a cme i believe is the most credible of threats facing us shot-term. much can be done to ameleiorate the threat if you live in a rural area. stockpile food weapons(a few) and all thw obious stuff.bbe ready for social unrerst and no outside help for at least 4 months. Good luk

  13. This is not God”s judgment on us, it is just physics. as avian flu is biology. was once avidly rligious and there ar God is not in this equattion. I am an ex christian and grant that paranormal activity is real, but that doesn’t imply A white Yahweh or such. create our own reality and our own disasters. row up and stop believing that the bible is to be taken lietrally, its not e forces for good and evil, but we generate them, OK???

  14. my favorite comments are you whack jobs talking about how scientific this blog is. Please show me the scientific data supporting any of these things.


  16. is this true?

  17. michael burroughs

    around october or november a major earth quack will hit california i wish it wasent but it will!! so please listen to me tell anyone you know to leave that state now… i have been able to see things before they happen!!!you must trust me my email is michaeltodd67@hotmail.com feel free to contact me after it happens if you chose not to belive me… because what comes next is too much for me handle l thought if i start telling people now i can save as many as i can please listen to me !!!!!!!!
