2012: is this the year it all ends?

I'm a sceptic. I think it will pass by with no unusual problems just as did Y2K, but who really knows? The Mayans thought they knew. They are gone now but their prediction still remains; the world ends on December 21st 2012 or at least that is when the Mayan calender runs out.

Christians pray everyday for the return of their Lord and Savior which will supposedly bring resurection, tribulation, Armageddon, judgement and the eventual end to life as we know it. 

Then their is the unexpected, like asteroids, sun flares, quasar bursts, collisions and other extra-planetary disasters.

And then their are the unpredictable, but plausible on-planet natural disasters; earthquakes, volcanoes, super hurricanes and the like.
Natural Disaster

Then their is us, the rulers of the planet; we could annihilate ourselves very efficiently with our warring; nuclear, dirty bomb, gas, or maybe a viral attack upon mankind.
These manmade calamities are the ones I most fear when I ponder these things.

  1. Also of note is that in 2012 the sun enters the peak of what is predicted to be a very violent solar season as far as sunspots and flares are concerned.
