The world will not end at 2012, I don't care who said that it will. There have been hundreads of "The world is going to end" sort of days that people calculated that never came true. There are still people who believe that the world should have ended back at 2000 and that the world will end any time now. These people are completely out of their mind in my opinion. The only thing that raises concern in 2012 is that large asteroid that will fly in between the Earth and the Moon, which is very close, but it will not hit us unless it flys into what is called a key hole, spot in space close yet far enough away from the Earth where it will sling back around and hit the Earth in seven years or something like that.
