Maya Predict End of the World in 2012 Maya, who lived in Central America, flourished from 6 to 9 century.They were obsessed with time and keeping a calendar, which was incredibly accurate, asshown cycles of the Moon, Sun and planets. Predicted lunar and solar eclipses for thousands of years into the future.The arrangement of the planets defines a series of world ages. Fourth period ends on 21. 12. 2012 when the other big head of human history will find its end.
The Millerites William Miller is perhaps the most famous false prophet in history. In the 1840s he began to preach about the world's end, saying Jesus Christ would return for the long-awaited Second Coming and that Earth would be engulfed in fire sometime between March 21, 1843, and March 21, 1844.
Harold Camping, 1994 Harold Camping's prediction that the world will end Saturday, May 21, 2011, is not his first such prediction. In 1992, the evangelist published a book called 1994?, which proclaimed that sometime in mid- September 1994, Christ would return and the world would end.
William Branham and the Pentecostal Prediction He preached seven sermons in seven nights, explaining the meaning of the seals and the seven visions he had received, leading him to predict that Jesus would return to Earth in 1977. He did not live to see the day. In December 1965, as Branham was driving with his family in Texas, a drunk driver smashed into his car. Branham died six days later, on Christmas Eve.
Y2K For months before the stroke of midnight on Jan. 1, 2000, analysts speculated that entire computer networks would crash because of the global population that had become irreversibly dependent on computers. The problem was that many computers had been programmed to record dates using only the last two digits of every year, meaning that the year 2000 would register as the year 1900, totally screwing with the collective computerized mind.
Large Hadron Collider Potentially Creates a Black Hole Large Enough to Swallow the Earth The Large Hadron Collider that stretches 27 km between France and Switzerland is the largest particle accelerator ever built and was set to be turned on on September 10, 2008 to recreate the Big Bang. It was built by Cern. The hadron particles within the accelerator would be crashed into each other at a speed almost as great as the speed of light in an area a billion times smaller than a speck of dust.
20,000 Londoners Flee Their Homes In The Second Great Flood A respected German scholar and priest, Johannes Stoeffler, predicted in 1499 that the world would be flooded again because all six of the planets known then would be in conjunction in the constellation of Pisces. Because he was well-respected, people listened to his prediction and braced themselves for the second Great Flood.
We are interested in what people think about the end of the world. The purpose of this report is to show different opinions of the people. The reason for this is to show you what people think and some failed,,End of the world’’. We asked some groups of people to calculate how many of them think in 21.12.12 the end of the world will happen and how many of them don’t think so. We conducted our research by asking 3 groups of people-kids, young people and old people. In addition, we researched that most of the people think that this is a nonsense.
Focus groups OLD PEOPLE YOUNG PEOPLE KIDS
Have you heard the about the end of the world? 2012 YESNO
Have you heard about the end of the world ? KIDS Yes, I have-25 No, I haven’t-5 YOUNG PEOPLE Yes, I have-24 No, I haven’t-6 OLD PEOPLE Yes, I have-17 No, I haven’t-13
Those 25 kids who know about 2012 think that’s not true and it’s only a legend (myth). They said that there’s no way to end and they don’t think the idea of being trapped in black hole is realistic. Some of them think that just the calendar of the Maya have ended or it’s just fiction of some crazy people with big imagination.
6 of the boys haven’t heard about the end of the world in 2012, 7 think this is nonsense and the other 2 believe that there will be natural disasters and floods. 9 of the girls believe that there will be floods and natural disasters, 3 of them believe in the legend of the Maya and other 3 believe that nothing will change.
A lot of old people didn’t hear about the end of the world in 2012. 17 people of this group think this,,end of the world’’ is deception and distract people from important and essential things. They think these rumors are interesting but are nonsenses and it won’t happen. And if there is a end of the world it will be caused by the wars.
We found that, on the whole, people don’t believe in these predictions.Convey the idea that the world will end, people miss the good things about themselves and reduces their quality of life. We recommend that people must believe in their own future and luck because the fate knows best when will something start or end for everyone of us.
