Predictions about End of the World

While all sensible people would surely agree that the world has an end time, this belief has become more a reality with more predictions coming up which seem to be highly accurate. Anything that has its beginning has also an end time. Experts from around the world predicts end of the world will takes place during the next  five years and some are saying it will be the result of human beings which change the environment, some natural phenomenon, other saying God himself will end the world.

It was terribly nervous watching a special programme on “21 December 2012 Mayas Calendar End of the world” which predicts the world to end on 21 December 2012 on Aj Tak television channel. The Maya Calendars which have the habit of fulfilling its predictions coming true has found no days after December 21, 2012, which means that it will be the last day on earth. Such issue have personally disturbed me and the end results always are I go deeper to the issue.

The Mayan calendar made by the Maya World Studies Centre is a century old. The Mayan in fact, are the people best known of the classical civilizations in Mesoamerica. Their history started probably around 2600 BC. Their history rose to prominence around 250 AD in present day Mexico, El Salvador and northern Belize, etc. They are bloodthirsty race, building highly accurate astrological equipment out of stone and sacrificing virgins.
 
Thousands of years ago, they had calculated the length of the lunar moon as 329.53030 days and got wrong only with 34 seconds! It is believed that Nostradamus may have been in contact with the Mayan Elders in his development of certain skills in his extensive wisdom of astrology and predictions.
 
The Maya calendar divided into months of 20 days, years of 360 days, katun of 7200 days and a bakatun of 144,000 days. According to it the world will last exactly 13 bakatun cycles. Their calendar started on 3114-AUG-13 BCE with the birth of Venus and they predicted the world will end during the Winter Solastic of 2012.
The year 2012 is predicted to be the sure date for the end of the world. Although Mayans were the first on this line, there are other around the world whose prediction on end of the world  fall on the same 2012.
 
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
 
Atom Smasher
Scientists in Europe have been building the world’s largest particle accelerator. Basically it is a 27-kilometre 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. So 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.
 
The Bible
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 and 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.
 
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 are 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.
 
The Physicists
The case of bog-simple match mathematics. Physicists at Berkeley University have been studying the numbers and 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.
 
Earth’s magnetic field
We all know the Earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that protect 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 and changing its 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 20-30 kilometres 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 ultraviolet outdoors to crisp human skin in seconds, killing everything it touches.
 
In the past, end time of the world date have been predicted but fortunately they got wrong (or has already ended). Aliens called Zetas group warned us through human contact that the earth will be wipe out by a comet which passes by every 3657 years. According to it, the earth will pass through its tail causing our planet to stop rotating for several days which will cause violent winds, firestorm and gigantic tidal wave in 2003. The Jehovah’s Witnesses predicted doomsday as 1984.
 
The Lord’s Witnesses, a British group, predicted destruction of the world in 2008. According to the group, the Bible contains codes which can be used to predict the end  of the world. Base on this, they have charted the history of mankind from the birth of Adam in the year 4027 BC and its destruction of the world in 2008 as a result of a horrific world war.
 
Base on the investigation into the mysterical number 666, Eli Eshah predicted the world would end in 1998. Many who took Eshah advice sold their belongings prior to the date. According to him, Rapture took place on June 6, 1998. The reason it was not noticed was that only 603,729 were taken up so out of the total population of billions it was not noticed. The beast was born on June 6, 1998 the world is entering into a period of great instability.
 
We have more report on prediction for the end of the world. Asteriod XF11 will pass dangerously to the earth which will result into its destruction. Current analysis, however, suggest that it will come no closer than 951,000 kilometres (591,000 miles). Pope Leo IX in the year 1514 wrote “I will not see the end of the world, nor will you my brethren, for its time is long in the future 500 years hence.”
 
According to Rashad Khalifa, end of the world is coded in the Quran and he translated that it  will be destroyed in 2280. The year 2000 was related with the number 666. When 2000 is divided by 3, the result is the evil’s number 666, 66666666666666666666. It was believed that all computer will have been crashed on the stroke of midnight and there was so much apprehension. Provided we survive the aforementioned World Ends, we will absolutely and definitely cease to exist in the year 1,000,000.
 
Gamma Ray bursts occur naturally in the Galaxy due to event such as neutron star binary inspirals. These happen every million years and produce a gamma ray which exceeds even the largest solar flares. The absorption of this radiation into our atmosphere will increase nitric oxide concentrations and greatly reduce ozone concentrations resulting in the extinction of life on Earth.
 
The Bible stipulates that "no man knoweth the day or the hour" of the last day, it is very difficult not to accept that end of the world will take place anytime of  the second of the minute of the day. We are standing near to the end and it will be materialised more sooner than many believe. It is appropriate to take care of our future and save our lives for eternity where nothing ends but peace and joy. Christian’s theory of Eternity has sheer connection with the pre-plan ‘end of the world’.
