What do you think: it this the end?

A Facebook post yesterday blew up when I asked whether people thought the world was really going to end in 2012, like many people think the Mayans predicted.

Here’s a sampling of some of the replies:


While most of the replies were basically saying that it’s all a crock, some had thought-provoking messages.

Here’s some of my favorites:

From Sarah Leib:

Let’s be realistic here… Someday the world will die. The sun will explode and it will happen very quickly. We will have a short time to gather family before we freeze or the explosion reaches us. BUT… as it has been stated by scientists, we are in no danger of this happening in our lifetime. There will be no zombies or doomsday. It is all just hype stated on the internet that just so happened to go viral. Worst that will happen is a solar storm that will knock out electronics. And to some, that probably would be the end of the world. But.. I think we could all use a good ole dose of reality ad pull our faces out of modern technology. Let the fun begin!!! I, for one, do not plan on leaving my house for any reason that weekend because of the crazies. I will be armed and guard my house in case someone stupid trys looting for whatever reason. If it happens, then I will be with the ones I love… If not, see you all on the 22nd!!!

From Jeremy Moyer:

 I live each day as it’s my last anyway I don’t really pay attention to all the meaningless predictions. I just hope if it does happen that i will be holding my twenty month old son to let him know it’s gonna be o.k.

What do you think? Is the world going to end? And if so, what do you plan to do about it?
