The End of the World
Below are some thoughts as to when the world is going to
In order to answer this question, we must infer that the
questioner means earth and surrounding areas. However, some are
taught esoterically that the world comes and goes in history with
no permanent creation or destruction. To say the world ends means
no preservation exists eternally. Yet many religions have different
beliefs and to say one has preference over the other means one is a
member of that belief. I prefer the going and coming of lower world
preservation times. It could end tomorrow and begin the next day,
but in a permanent ending, I do not believe. Consciousness of the
Self as an individual spiritual divine spark is eternal no matter
what form one is in whether spiritual or manifest. Religions and
philosophies place great limitations upon one, whereas freedom of
spirit always has been for all outside these binding (meaning of
The world will end when no one expects it, when Jesus comes to
earth, he will take the people who served him on one side, the
other on the other, then he will take the good people up to Heaven
and the rest will die while the earth is destroyed, no one knows
when though, and don't worry about it, don't freak out.
Although the date December 20, 2012 sticks out according to the
predictions of Nostradamus (many of his works were coded), the
Aztec calendar (nothing on their calendar is recorded after this)
and people such as Edgar Cayce, this date does keep coming up. The
truth... no one knows when the world is going to end. Since I was a
little girl growing up in the 1940's to date there was always this
controversy that the world was going to end soon. So far it hasn't,
but, we all have to participate in keeping our planet clean and
replacing what we take (if we can) and the worst danger of all is
over population of the world. This leads to less and less space and
an imbalance of nature.
It is speculated that the world will most likely end in the
year 2012. The Mayan calendar is a system of measurement that has
been accurate within seconds for thousands of years. Most of the
predictions that were made by the race were correct. In the year
2012 the Mayan calendar ceases completely. There is argument over
whether the world will actually end or if it will be similar to an
ecological new beginning. In other words, something akin to hitting
the reset button.This is purely theory, and cannot be proven at
Jesus said no one but the Father knows.
According to scientists many people believe that the world will
end on Dec. 21, 2012. That's the end of the Mayan calendar and most
of the predictions were correct but nobody really knows when the
world will end. The world will end unexpectedly like a thief in the
night as said in the Bible "You shall not know the date nor the
No one really knows. There are people with signs walking down
pedestrian areas in cities that say they know, and occasionally
someone will give a date and say it comes from God, but in the
scriptures (if you are religious) it tells us that no man knows the
hour. We'll probably figure it out before it happens... but not by
much. And if you aren't religious, the answer is the same... who
knows when we'll blow ourselves up with scary manmade bombs or the
next pandemic will come. The best thing we can do is live the best
we can and not worry about things that we can't control.
It will end 2012, December 21. it said before Jesus was born on
People aren't sure. You will know when it is going to happen,
End of the world - December 21, 2012
Apocalyptic predictions: 2012 is sometimes claimed to be a
great year of spiritual transformation (or apocalypse). Many
esoteric sources interpret the completion of the twelfth B'ak'tun
cycle in the Long Count of the Maya calendar (which occurs on
December 21 by the most widely held correlation) to mean there will
be a major change in world order.
Accordingly, several eclectic authors claim that a major,
world-changing event will take place in the year 2012:
The 1995 book The Mayan Prophecies linked the Mayan calendar
with long-period sunspot cycles.
The book claims the Maya may have been instructed in their
wisdom by discarnate entities from Orion and the Pleiades. Contact
was maintained through shamanic rituals conducted in accordance
with the movements of planets and stars.
The 1997 book "The Bible Code" claims that, according to
certain algorithms of the Bible code, a meteor, asteroid or comet
will collide with the Earth.
The book "The Nostradamus Code" speaks of a series of natural
disasters caused by a comet (possibly as above) which will allow
the third Antichrist to disperse his troops around the globe under
the guise of aid in preparation for a possible nuclear war,
although in the strictest sense it is unspecific as to nuclear war
or some other natural or man caused destruction.
The book "The Orion Prophecy" claims that the Earth's magnetic
field will reverse.
The 2005 book "Beyond 2012: Catastrophe or Ecstasy" by Geoff
Stray reviews several theories, prophecies and predictions
concerning 2012 and finds where authors have used faulty
information or have bent the truth to fit their theories.
The 2006 book "2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl" by Daniel
Pinchbeck discusses theories of a possible global awakening to
psychic connection by the year 2012, creating a noosphere. It also
discusses many other aspects of the 2012 phenomenon from a neutral
Other prophecies and apocalyptic writings and hypotheses for
this year include:
Terence McKenna's mathematical novelty theory suggests a point
of singularity in which a great number of things could happen,
including "hyperspatial breakthrough", planetesimal impact, alien
contact, historical metamorphosis, metamorphosis of natural law,
solar explosion, quasar ignition at the galactic core, or
The Prophecy of the Popes, attributed to Saint Malachy,
speculated that Pope Benedict XVI would reign during the beginning
of the tribulation of which Jesus spoke, and sometime later a
future pope described in the prophecy as "Peter the Roman", the
last in this prophetic list, would appear, bringing as a result the
destruction of the city of Rome and the Last Judgment.
Many new age spiritualists and philosophers ("new-agers")
believe humankind will enter an age of enlightenment in 2012. There
are a range of varying, generally positive, beliefs shared by a
subset of spiritualists from the mundane to exceptional - including
a positive social shift and age of peace, mankind becoming psychic
and connected by a collective, and/or an evolution of the human
race into non-corporeal beings made of "spiritual" energy, or light
energy, i.e. 'ascension'.
Some alien-enthusiasts, along with some new-agers, believe 2012
to correspond approximately with the return of alien "watchers" or
"caretakers" who might have helped the first human civilizations
with developing their technology and may have been waiting for us
to reach a higher level of technological and/or social advancement.
Beliefs range from the extra-terrestrials having benevolent
purposes - such as to help human society evolve - to malevolent
purposes - such as enslavement of mankind and/or manipulation.
The Nepalese ascetic Ram Bahadur Bomjon, the so-called "Buddha
boy", reportedly told his followers that he would return around
Some proponents of a peak oil catastrophe place major events in
2012. Richard C. Duncan's book "The Peak of World Oil Production"
and "The Road To The Olduvai Gorge" claims that the Olduvai cliff
will begin and permanent blackouts will occur worldwide. Several
studies predict a peak in oil production in or around 2012.
The end of the world, The world will end in our hands. Soon we
will turn ourselves into monsters as we are beginning to. Soon the
world will lose its' humane self and rot. World War III is coming.
United states is losing it's seat in being the World Power. Eager
people are waiting to get their hands on NUKE and send them. For
our sake, I hope the world does not end and it will not end, for it
is only the beginning.
According to scientists: about 6 billion years from now
Nobody knows except the person that created the earth
Many people have tried and will continue trying to derive the
date of the end of the world. However, the plain and simple truth
is that no one can really know for sure.
That's for God to decide. No one knows for sure, only God!
This question is practically unanswerable. There are many
beliefs that the world will one day end (most commonly known as
judgment day). But how or when it will end depends on the religion
or faith that people follow/believe in.
Some people believe that the world will not end, go on until
the end of time, although that is a paradox within itself since
there is not "the end of time" if they believe the world will not
From the Islam religion, the only information that is given is
that when The Day Of Judgment -Yawm al 8iyama, literally meaning
the day of the rising- does happen, it will be on a Friday.
Half way through the year 2830 the world (planet Earth) will
Nobody really knows, there are several spiritual, religious and
scientific theories of how the world will end and when, several
times in the past there have been predictions of when the world
will end, like the years 1000, 2000 and in the future, 2012.
Scientifically though planet earth will be consumed when the sun
grows to a red giant in a couple of billion years or so, whether or
not humans are still around remains to be seen, more than likely we
will either be extinct, evolved into another lifeform or no longer
live on earth.
2012 The Mayan's were great with numbers. Even NASA has said
something big is going to happen in the year 2012. but truthfully,
nobody in this world knows when the world is going to end. And You
should not be worried about that now. It does not matter.
It says in The Bible that when Jesus, our Savior, comes back,
as He promised us before He went to Heaven, then the Earth might
possibly end from all sorts of natural disasters. But truthfully,
nobody except God knows. But as I stated earlier, it depends on
which religion you believe in. Since not everyone follows The
No one can ever know or predict the exact day when the universe
will end, because this God hid from us, and never revealed such
information to any human being. Whoever predicts a date is
certainly a liar.
No one knows the answer to this; only God knows the appropriate
time. So, live everyday like its your last, but prepare for the
future like you will here for another 80 years!
The point when the atmosphere and the ozone runs out of
protective layers, and when the sun will burn out. ( note= The sun
will burn out in a couple hundred billion years) The world will
Reason #1: The world will end when terrorists hack into the US
military computer and fire all the nuclear weapons everywhere.
Reason #2: It is believed by some that the end of the world
will occur in the year 2032 A.D. with the most popular scenario
being a war between the human race and advanced cybernetic
organisms. Other anticipated scenarios are a giant asteroid
collision with the earth, World War III and an alien
invasion/takeover of the earth.
Reason #3: There are thousands of cultures that lived thousands
of years apart, and they all predicted that on December 21st, 2012,
the world will end. The cultures did not specify how, but it could
all be a mere coincidence that the cultures chose that same date;
or was it chosen for a reason? We will have to wait and find
Reason #4: In opportunity scientists believe that the world
will end just like the dinosaurs life ended. The dinosaurs all died
from a meteorite that killed any living thing except stuff that are
alive today or else we would not have them!
Reason #5: The world will end because of the overflowing junk
that has piled up. There will be so much junk, there will be no
place to put it all, and the world will just end up dying.
According to the Bible, the earth will have an end one day, but
no on knows when it will be. All predictions that give a date will
be wrong. See these verses from the Bible: About the end of the
world: 2 Peter 3:7-13 "But the heavens and the earth, which are
now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against
the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men...But the day of
the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the
heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall
melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are
therein shall be burned up...Looking for and hasting unto the
coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall
be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and
a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." But as to when that
day will be, no one knows: Matthew 24:35-36 "Heaven and earth shall
pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and
hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father
only." (See also Mark13:31-32.) That day is said to come as a
"thief in the night", which means that no one will no when it will
be - for no one knows when a thief will break in their house.
(Matthew 24:42-44, 2 Peter 3:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:2) Jesus said in
Matthew 24:44 "Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as
ye think not the Son of man cometh."
Probably when the sun dies! That will be in about 5 billion
years (because that's how much hydrogen we estimate the sun
When ice caps melt from global warming. That is because the
water from the ice caps will overflow the seas and it would flood
the Earth's lands!
Some say that the worlds going to end on 21st December 2012
because that's when the Mayan calendar ends. I don't think anyone
needs to worry about it. The world is not going to end until Jesus
comes down to earth again.
Nobody knows when The End Of The World is but many people suspected
we were all supposed to die on December 21 2012 but it did not
There is only one person that knows when the end of the world will
be. Only God knows when the end of the world will be.
The addenda of the "internet pope" begins here :
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit :2 Peter
3:10 - "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night,
in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the
elements will melt with fervent heat, both the earth and the works
that are in it will be burned up. [v.11 : Therefore, since all
things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in
holy conduct and godliness, (12) looking for and hastening the
coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be
dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent
heat? (13) Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new
heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells."]
12/21/2013 A.D. :
Recently, I happened upon a copy of Pilgrim's Progress, which is,
in essence, the Gospel of Jesus Christ according to St. John
Bunyan, written in the style of an action/adventure novel. (The
brief biography of John Bunyan which I read, relates that on more
than one occasion he was taken prisoner, and was a mischievous sort
of child, who during the 17th century was led to God in various
The book's main character, Christian, receives a call, a vocation,
from God, to leave his city of destruction and embark on a perilous
journey to the Celestial City in order to enjoy the rewards of his
God-King. Burdened with sin, Christian struggles to meet with one
of many characters, Interpreter, who instructs him of several
things and bids Christian, "God speed."
Then Christian tearfully comes to the Cross of Christ, and the
burden of his sin is removed, falling off his back into a
sepulcher. Christian is then also clothed in fine raiment and given
a written roll, a bible, a testament, a resolution, a tract of
inspirational writing that he should present at the gate of the
Celestial City so that he could be welcomed by the God-King, even
though more dangers awaited him on the way.
The Courageous movie (video), this 'Resolution ' program, as
well as the mentoring and follow-up programs, inclusive to release
from prison, all seemingly bear a mirroring of the story of
Christian's journey in Pilgrim's Progress. It is my prayer with and
for you that we, too, complete this journey, successfully, with
room to spare.
It also has only been recently that I have had recourse to study
some particulars about the perils of our journey as those of which
Christ spoke in the Gospel of St. Matthew, chapter twenty four.
This has included facing my accusers who, much like myself prior to
prayer and research, were in need of a greater understanding of
events yet to come. What began as continued robbery, a
refusal/failure to do automobile inspection, by the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, has ended in the knowledge that a nuclear holocaust
awaits us in the near future.
In 2 Peter 3:10 there is mention of a "great noise". I have been
led to understand that this ' great noise' will be caused as an
after effect of nuclear war. It is only through the use of such
incendiaries that a global kindling could occur, much like a flour
mill explosion, produced by the dense concentrations of dust and
debris in the atmosphere. This explosion will be preceded by an
event that some Catholic mystics have called "the three days of
darkness." The build-up of fallout will cause this. I have been
given the grace to draw some parallels between Christ's coming and
return, specifically, His sending the same messenger firstly, and
the uniqueness of each experience.
What possible reminder could the earth engulfed in darkness
possibly evoke? Was not Christ in the tomb, that sepulcher of sin,
for three days? Has not a great spiritual darkness already come
upon men, where common murder is seen as a God serving necessity,
and sexual perversion is embraced as ethical? Take away God's
grace, and we will all surely perish, but this is the Judgment, the
coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
The Catholic mystics tell us that the only way to see physically
during the three days of darkness shall be by being in possession
(and use) of both blessed (beeswax) candles and blessed matches.
This means that all manner of conventional electricity will fail.
What scientists must remember is that the coming of the day of the
Lord has unique experiences. The agnostic/atheist scientist who has
gone so far as to assume electricity to be solely of man's
creation, will find him/her self without an explanation.
But all scientists will agree that the arsenal of ICBMs
(inter-continental ballistic missiles) could be strong enough to
cause fallout greater than the largest known natural explosion,
that of Krakatoa, the volcano-island that basically disappeared
after erupting in the latter 1800's, and caused worldwide visible
darkening for some five days.
When nations vie for the status of having the most deadly force as
regards their weaponry, Satan is literally having a picnic. As long
and damaging as what is called "World War Two" was, the era of
peace to come, as promised by Our Lady of Fatima's prophecy (1917),
has not yet been realized in terms of the resolution of the three
days of darkness, where, again, to quote the 2nd letter of St.
Peter, "we . . . look for the new heavens and a new earth in which
With such unresolved conflict, it is easy that one find writing of
resolution to be a difficult task. I have noted to the group that
the Resolution Program wreaks of error in the subliminal and
outright disobedience to Christ's command, : "Call no man your
father." I have efforted to also show that God raises, even
resurrects, the sign of the Son of Man (Matt. 24:30) - that He has
used my body, soul, and strength in this process, which in the past
was manifested to the world in St. Elijah and St. John the Baptist.
There is need for further resolution which only time and the grace
of God can bring. Let us not hasten unnecessarily, as inclusive to
this resolution is the eternity which Christ has promised : (cf.
John 14:2) : "I go to prepare a place for you." Christ's preparing
has included His sufferings and death upon the Cross, defeating
death by His death. We are assured that our Creator has spoken with
resolve on the night He was betrayed to continue to work on our
behalf in His promise and sending of the Holy Spirit to strengthen
and guide us.
The Epistle of James (4:13-14) states : "Come now, you who say,
'Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year
there, buy and sell, and make a profit' ; whereas you do not know
what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a
vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away."
Let our resolution then, be that of God's resolve - past, present,
and future, to learn and love of His Word, as did Christian in
Pilgrim's Progress. Christ has said of our times, "All these are
beginnings of sorrows," likening His 2nd Coming to the birth of a
child. Let us resolve to embrace that coming Child, for it is,
indeed, Our Creator and Our God.

Scientifically, the end of the world is possible when the sun uses up all of it's hydrogen and creates a supernova. The Earth might get caught in the supernova, and the Earth …will be too hot for any organisms to survive. (MORE)

i know all yall people need to stop believeing all that crud. ______________ Actually, The world will end, It cant survive forever. But we really shouldn't worry about 'when' …it will end, It's VERY unlikely to end in our generation, even the next, or the next. But like other stars in our universe, they have a shelf life, and planets around them stars are destroyed along with them. That's a proven fact.

LISTEN UP PEOPLE( EVEN IF YOU'RE LATE FOR A JOB INTERVIEW) CAUSE I GOT A LECTURE: You know what, it isn't going to end and some people are just depressed and say the world is …going to end because they're broke or they're house burned down. I've been hearing about this alot and I am just EXTREMELY FURIOUS about it. The ancient Mayans weren't intellectual in that way and someone probably goofed of and put so-called "ancient calendars" in the habitats where the Mayans lived. That person has so much nerve to not give up that act yet. I really wonder whether the writer of the movie 2012 really does believe the world is going to end because he has done such a good job in influencing people to think such things. Movies the #1 way to influence people in a good or bad way and this is just wrong. The new song by Britney Spears Til the world ends gives people with the opinion that the world isn't going to end a twitching galore but if you see the video at the end it shows how the world will not end and how we can still achieve goals in life. I cannot believe someone can be this selfish to spread these depressing rumors which already has damaged 8,000,000 relationships because their wedding is going to be in 2012. If you are Reading this you better get yourself together because relationships went in the toilet, obesity because of emotional eating has probably occurred, and you're life probably went into Tartarus because of something major happening. There are preteens turning 13 next year and now they are so depressed because you have ruined their life and vanquished what was once their goals and what seems will never will be because of you're sadness exploding and pouring lava all over everyone. Some people are refusing to going to college because they want to stay away from communication and happiness because of you're tormenting depression. I hope the word gets out about this answer because this is more than just that; this is a cure to everything that has happened. That's just the introduction of my lecture. Internationally, people joke about this and for the first few months it was fine but now they know the rumor which is permenantly engraved into their brain as a reminder about why they can't go to college, get a job, marry, have kids, become an entreupreneur and an infinaty amount of other things. The world was supposed to end in 2005, 2000, 2009, and other years but did it? No, absolutely not. Archeoligists are numskulls for telling people this junk like a fruit-roll up wrapper. I hope someone out there is reading all of this because he/she can stand up for this sword in the brain rumor. I feel so brave speaking my mind and pouring every single letter of what I really think. I just want to sit down with the person who could have started the rumors and get every single drop of the cruel plan behind this. Perhaps it's because they needed more money for goods and needs. I will make sure that this cure (a.k.a so called "answer") will overpower and dominate the rumor of the world ending. If I ever get a prize or whatever I will give it to the special person because whoever you are; you are destined for great things and you have the softest heart in the whole universe. One more thing is stop praying for the doomsday to not happen and take action and smell out the tyrant who started all this. He/she doesn't deserve a taste of his own poison but he needs a hard-core lecture like this one and he/she will be entitled to be a joyful person not a cranky, depressed person. Si'l vous plait, do what should have been done centuries ago and prove that person wrong. Speaking your mind about the right opinion is like throwing up a diamond worth trillions of dollars. I would take action and talk on the media about how wrong, cruel, tyranty, and dominating this question is. I hope in this year or the next the question "When will the world end?", "Is the world going to end?", will simply be answered as "What in the world are you talking about, the world willl never end?" I know I have repeated things several things many times but you have to listen and read things many times until you finally get what's going on. (MORE)

Despite the hype over the Mayan calender coming to an end, the world actually did come very close to ending in 2012. From our sun came one of the largest solar storms ever rec…orded, which was hurdling toward Earth's orbit with enough force to cripple energy grids across the globe.Daniel Baker of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado said "If it had hit, we would still be picking up the pieces," in a NASA press release on the matter.So how close did it come?Baker commented on the matter, stating, "If the eruption had occurred one week earlier, Earth would have been in the line of fire."The storm did manage to hit the Stereo A spacecraft, providing researchers with data they have been analyzing since and released in April.Had it hit, the solar storm would have wiped out radios, GPS systems, and power grids. As Baker put it, the storm would have disabled "everything that plugs into a wall socket." The impact would have begun with a blast of radiation, followed by a coronal mass ejection, a cloud of potentially billions of tons of hot, electrically charged hydrogen and helium atoms. It was estimated that it would have caused over $2 trillion in damages.Not only would this cripple all information exchange, it would have taken down systems responsible for pumping water into urban areas.Scientists at NASA estimate that this storm may have been more powerful than the 1859 burst that managed to hit our planet, also known as the Carrington event, after Richard Carrington, an English Astronomer. During the event, the Northern Lights could be seen as far south as Cuba, Hawaii, and even Tahiti. Telegraph lines were destroyed, and some unlucky technicians were electrified.When solar storms occur, the suns surface throws bursts of plasma into space. This particular plasma cloud was one of largest ever observed, and was thrown through space at more than 1,800 miles per second, four times faster than average.Despite a decrease in solar activity, FEMA recommends that U.S. citizens prepare by freezing containers of water and keeping fuel tanks at least half full."I have come away from our recent studies more convinced than ever that Earth and its inhabitants were incredibly fortunate that the 2012 eruption happened when it did," said Baker. "We need to be prepared."(MORE)

No, it will not end. Scientists are predicting many things. But it doesn't mean it is true. Predictions can be true or they can be wrong. For the most part the prediction of 2…012 is wrong. They say the world was going to end in 2000 because of the computers and now they are predicting the world ending in 2012 because of what is happening around us. Only God knows when and when the time will come. All you have to do is keep praying and keep believing.(MORE)
