Windows 7: 2012 - End of an Era. Or the World's?

2012 - End of an Era. Or the World's?

First off, let's clarify here that I know there have been referrals to the world's end in the past, however all of them proved to be unreal.
  • The year 1000 was thought to be the end of the world in the past.
  • The year 2000 was thought to be the end of the world as well, but here we are all, live and kicking.
Now, I've been hearing around about 2012, the Maya's Calendar and other related stuff all pointing to the year 2012 and "the end of the world as we know it".

After doing some research I found the following as facts:

1. Maya's Haab Calendar is the most precise annual calendar ever created. It's even more precise than ours , cause we have a year divided by 365.25, or else, 365 1/4 days, whereas the Mayas calculated a more precise division : 365.2422.

2. The Mayas are known for their extraordinary astonomical knowledge, at least for their time.

3. The Maya's Calendar places the end of the current Era at December 21, 11:11am GMT on the year 2012.

4. In 1983, NASA's astronomers discovered a very large object (around the size of Jupiter) near our Solar System.

5. In January 2005 , Eris, a new planet was discovered having a very large orbit around our Sun, therefore being a planet of our Solar System

6. The Sumerians, well-known ancient people, have in their mythology or history, whatever, the periodical arrival of a planet or deity (aprx. every 3000 years ) which they called Nibiru (Planet of Transportation). Some of their carved stones, depict all of our currently known planets plus one more(it was believed back then to have known only 5 , the naked-eye visible ones). A similar planet or deity is also known to the jews as Marduk.

7. Many books have been written about this , each referring to different reasons that would bring the end of the world.

8. Nasa installed a new telescope on the north pole on January 2008 to track this new object.

In addition to all these, I have searched for clues and have found many of them to be fake, some others to be misleading, some others to be connecting it with aliens and so on.

However, there are some videos and writings that could be taken seriously, and at least, under consideration. I mean...what if? I deal a lot with astronomy, I have a telescope myself, and I have seen in astronomical references the existense of a large object, coming towards us , and the possibility to be at its nearest point in around 2012.

So what?

Well, if a large object the size of Jupiter comes anywhere near Earth, the following could or would happen for sure:

1. Lots of huge earthquakes and climate change, cause of the gravity.
2. Cataclysmic events, floods, tsunami etc due to the same reason as above.
3. The asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter would be shaken from the huge celestial body's gravity, causing many asteroids to enter several planet's atmospere, including Earth's.
4. Earth's magnetic field could swap inverse, causing the earth to stop rotating for a while until it would re-align again. Guess its effects on us.

Now, the question is , is anything really approaching us?
I've read instructions on how to protect ourselves from a disaster like this. Hide in high-mountain caves to survive tsunamis, get food supplies for 2 years to survive climate and animal devastation, get oxygen masks to survive volcanic dust etc.

What do you think of all these?

Some interesting sources:

1. Google Search: Nibiru 2012

2. YouTube - Planet Nibiru 2012 Doomsday Comet Collision With Earth

3. YouTube - The TRUTH about December 21, 2012

4. YouTube - 2012 Mayan Prophecy Pt. 1

5. So the Maya's Were Right After All

I think that there is nothing I can do about it and I'm not going to worry about it. If it happens it happens and if it doesn't that's ok too.

But what if you can actually do something about it? I mean, ok you can't stop it from happenning, but if it happens, and you were prepared, you'd be one of the few to survive...imagine that...

Lol. I'm sure he'll be along.

I think it's like being at Gettysburg (The Civil War). One place is as safe as another and there is no safe place. If it happens there will likely be survivors and there is no way of telling who or where.

The survivors will probably be reduced to playing Pong and using rotary dial phones. Who wants to live like that?
