Lately there has been alot of talk of the world ending in 2012. Some people have also talked about this as the New Age. The Mayans even have 12-21-12 as the last day of their calander and as the day when the world ends at the hands of metorites and such.
Nostradamus, there was a special on him on the History Channel a few weeks ago, spekas of the Anti-Christ and how God will bring about the New Age using fire instead of water. He also speaks of the time when the center of the universe is crossed by eight celestial lines, and this phenomenon only happens every 13000 years, thriteen being the unluckly numerical value. Nostradamus also expects the world to be encased in a chaotic end at the hands of the Anti-Christ in 2012.
What do you think?
Dreams surely are difficult, confusing, and not everything in them is brought to pass for mankind. For fleeting dreams have two gates: one is fashioned of horn and one of ivory. Those which pass through the one of sawn ivory are deceptive, bringing tidings which come to nought, but those which issue from the one of polished horn bring true results when a mortal sees them.

And the whole 2012 thing is in December! People will ALREADY be killing themselves.
Wait, why would people just be killing themselves just because it was December? I don't get it. Maybe I just interpretted your statement wrong, but what do you mean by that?
Oh, that? It's a common occurrence that suicide rates go up around the holidays. Lots of different factors, less hours of sunlight every day, realizing that you have no one to spend the holidays with, being jealous of everyone else's happiness, etc etc.
But the thing is, I think that people should just stay strong and say that it's not gonna happen. Because then if it DOESN'T happen, you can say you were right and people won't think you're a moron, and if it DOES happen, then.... you're dead. You don't have to answer to anyone, and the people who were freaking out all along can't say, "I told you so" because, well what can I say?
