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.

^^ Well, the point of this being in the debate district is for us to debate on one another, so it doesn't really matter if you start a giant conflict or not, cuz it's... debate. Y'know. But anyways, I'm pretty sure the majority of this thread is against the world ending in 2012.
But anyways, I agree with you. I believe in God and I don't tihnk the world's gonna end in 2012. I think the argument other people present is interesting and I like learning about the opposing side's POV (hence my seemingly eager persona regarding this topic. I even presented a persuasive speech in my speech class to convince the class of the world ending (even though I clearly stated to them I didn't believe in it). So yeah, as you can probably tell, I enjoy having the knowledge of both sides of the argument.
The world's not going to end. Why? Not because other false prophecies haven't come true regarding it or because it's cool and fun to pick on those who do believe in it, but because the Bible says so. Like Animeoldtime says. And I have full faith in God. And even though the evidence presenting a higher being is often ignored claimed to be 'unreliable' and to those who don't believe in God would say that there's even less evidence for God than there is of the world ending in 2012. Either way only time God and scientific breakthroughs could tell.
EDIT: Oops, I didn't mean to bring the whole 'God' debate here.
