Summary:
A lot of articles are written as to when the world to end, I have
included one here with a few facts in the article to disprove that the
end of the world can be predicted as said in the article.


Keywords:
Amageddon, end of the world, comming of Christ, end of mankind, when
Jesus Comes again,


Article Body:
Scientific experts from around the world are genuinely predicting that
five years from now, all life on Earth could well finish. Some are saying
it will be humans that set it off. Others believe that a natural
phenomenon will be the cause. In addition, the religious folks are saying
it will be God himself who presses the stop button...


1. Mayan Calendar

The first mob to predict 2012 as the end of the world were the Mayans, a
bloodthirsty race that were good at two things:

Building highly accurate astrological equipment out of stone and
Sacrificing Virgins.

Thousands of years ago, they managed to   calculate the length of the lunar
moon as 329.53020 days, only 34 seconds   out. The Mayan calendar predicts
that the Earth will end on December 21,   2012. Given that they were pretty
close to the mark with the lunar cycle,   it is likely they have got the
end of the world right as well.


2. Sun Storms

Solar experts from around the world monitoring the sun have made a
startling discovery: our sun is in a bit of strife. The energy output of
the sun is, like most things in nature, cyclic, and it is supposed to be
in the middle of a period of relative stability. However, recent solar
storms have been bombarding the Earth with so much radiation energy; it
has been knocking out power grids and destroying satellites. This
activity is predicted to get worse, and calculations suggest it will
reach its deadly peak sometime in 2012


3. The Atom Smasher
Scientists in Europe have been building the world's largest particle
accelerator. It is a 27km tunnel designed to smash atoms together to find
out what makes the Universe tick. However, the mega-gadget has caused
serious concern, with some scientists suggesting that it is properly even
a bad idea to turn it on in the first place. They are predicting all
manner of deadly results, including mini black holes. Therefore, when
this machine is fired up for its first serious experiment in 2012, the
world could be crushed into a super-dense blob the size of a basketball.


4. The Bible says...

If having scientists warning us about the end of the world is not bad
enough, religious folks are getting in on the act as well.
Interpretations of the Christian Bible reveal that the date for
Armageddon, the final battle between Good an Evil, has been set down for
2012. The I Ching, also known as the Chinese book of Changes, says the
same thing, as do various sections of the Hindu teachings.


5. Super Volcano

Yellowstone National Park in the United States is famous for its thermal
springs and Old Faithful geyser. The reason for this is simple - it is
sitting on top of the world's biggest volcano, and geological experts are
beginning to get nervous sweats. The Yellowstone volcano has a pattern of
erupting every 650,000 years or so, and we're many years overdue for an
explosion that will fill the atmosphere with ash, blocking the sun and
plunging the Earth into a frozen winter that could last up to 15,000
years. The pressure under the Yellowstone is building steadily, and
geologists have set 2012 as a likely date for the big bang.


6. The Physicists

This one's case of bog-simple math’s mathematics. Physicists at Berkeley
Uni have been crunching the numbers. In addition, they have determined
that the Earth is well overdue for a major catastrophic event. Even
worse, they are claiming their calculations prove that we are all going
to die, very soon - while also saying their prediction comes with a
certainty of 99 percent- and 2012 just happens to be the best guess as to
when it occurs.


7. Slip-Slop-Slap-BANG!

We all know the Earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that shields us
from most of the sun's radiation. What you might not know is that the
magnetic poles we call north and south have a nasty habit of swapping
places every 750,000 years or so - and right now we are about 30,000
years overdue. Scientists have noted that the poles are drifting apart
roughly 20-30kms each year, much faster than ever before, which points to
a pole-shift being right around the corner. While the pole shift is
underway, the magnetic field is disrupted and will eventually disappear,
sometimes for up to 100 years. The result is enough UV outdoors to crisp
your skin in seconds, killing everything it touches.

Do you believe it?

No way,

Y2K was also predicted as the end of   the world and just turned out to be
a fluke to get you to spend a lot of   money to upgrade your computer. I
proved it a fluke by leaving my 1993   old computer one and the internal
clock changed over to 2000 no issues   at all.

This is from a forum in 2004.

No one can ever know when or what time the world should end. Every 10
billion years? Who knows? I believe in God and Jesus very strongly but
truthfully, I do not think they even have all these kinds of answers. And
supposedly, when the dinosaurs died they died from a meteoroid that hit
earth! Every 10 billion years it is supposed to hit and on Sept.27.04 is
our 10 billionth year, I guess. And right now at this, very second our
astronauts are trying to find a way to destroy it! However, if you think
it takes 6 months to get to mars, if the meteoroid is on the way it
should be near mars and we cannot see it and its supposed to be hotter
than the sun I am sure our world would be a lot brighter. So in my
opinion if you are obsessed with this whole end of the world thing I
suggest you prove your point and show the rest of us the facts of our
death date.


Another the same year.

Aright, the world is ending in about 8 months, around December of 2004.
There are about 5 comets headed straight for Earth coming toward the
South Pole. No one ever knew about this event until they built an
observatory in Antarctica and saw that they were coming. They kept this
event on the low and they killed the scientists that studied there so the
world would not freak out and so the economy would drop drastically. If
the whole world knew, people would be running around all over, stealing
things, and breaking out of jails etc. I heard this on AM Coast-To-Coast
radio program. Its nation wide show on the radio every night so you
should listen to it and discover interesting things for yourself.

Nostradamus

Actually, the Bible shows that not even the Son knows the date or hour,
but that 'only the Father' knows. (See Matthew 24:36) Since Nostradamus
is not the Father, it becomes obvious that he could not know of any
timing secrets, if you believe the Bible. Notice that in verse 13, we
are told clearly, what we must do to become saved: endure with
faithfulness until the end actually occurs. One cannot simply say, "I
believe upon the name of the Lord Jesus!" Words alone mean nothing.
Also, John 11:25 show that we need not be overly anxious or fearful of
this coming hour, because the faithful ones will be taken care of.
By the way, when the Bible speaks of the "world" passing away, it is not
talking about the Earth. Rather, it is talking about the wicked people
of the Earth. If you speak of the world's moral state, you do not speak
of the ground and trees, but of the people. Isaiah 45:18 tells us that
God did not make the Earth simply to destroy it, but to have it inhabited
(by righteous people). Again, a close look at the Bible can bring
comfort. :)

The Bible says no one will know.

The Bible describes believers as living in a state of expectancy, in a
state of tension, between two worlds. We live in the present world, which
we know will end, while we look for the world to come with the return of
Christ. "So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at
an hour when you do not expect him" (Matthew 24:44, NIV).

Me? Since it really cannot be predicted I do not believe we will ever
know in advance.

What do you believe?
