Even though it is possible that you could die in the next second, there isn't any reason for you to worry about it unnecessarily. The same goes for the end of the world, so why should it affect anyone getting through xmas?
Well. The title clearly says "Do you THINK the world will end in 2012?"
And for that i can easily say that i don't. can i say that i am 100% sure that is is impossible to happen? the answer is no, i can't.

So if you understand the title and still vote for unsure, then you most be very worried or have too bad of a life to give a shit.
ether way, you won't have a very nice Xmas.

I don't think the Mayan's calendar is wrong - it was a calendar, and it was pretty dam accurate. It just didn't state the end of the world - that part is purely made up by the imagination of people today.

For example, our calander ends on the last day of the year, to then restart on the first of January - there's nothing there about the end of the world. A bit like the Mayan calendar, only it's cycles are far longer.

There is. Like I prefaced with though, I thought that statement when I didn't know it was the beginning of a new age and was under the impression that it was just where their calendar ended which meant we ended.

in fact we add leap days in so that our calendar doesn't stray from these celestial events, (e.g. june 21st is summer solstice, dec 21 is winter solstice.)
You are probably right about this. I'd have to dig to find the random internet page that "proved" my comment and since I'm really not all that familiar with how the Mayans did things I'll just bow out on this topic and trust you on this one.

I'm not sure if you guys know this or not... But the Twinkie was supposed to survive the Nuclear Holocaust. And it dies weeks before the inventors of my favorite condiment predicted the world would end. Coincidence? I think not.

And just look at these images taken only days ago:

The world will either end or it wont, not a lot we can do about it, so no use worrying or stressing about it.
