2012 - End of World Or Start of the Party?

The 2012 end of world scenario has a lot of people worried. The basic idea is that some people believe that the world is going to end on December 21, 2012, which is the date that the Mayan calendar ends. But what exactly do people mean when they say "the end of the world".

This is really the key to the equation. No one knows what will happen for sure. Some believe that we'll be facing death and destruction, while others feel that things are about to get really good.

"What?" you may ask. Yup, there are actually two sides to this debate (well, three if you count the people that believe it's going to be just another day), both of which can be fairly convincing.

On one side, you've got the people that think the world is about to be destroyed. Science is on their side. Certain scientific signs can easily be interpreted to mean destruction for the planet. I'm not just talking about global warming. For example, some believe that the poles might reverse, which would cause intense earthquakes and tidal waves that could easily destroy most of the planet. Other theories point to asteroids, sun spots cycles, and a galactic alignment.

But you don't have to face certain destruction! On the other side of the fence are the people that believe that there is going to be a sudden transformation for the better. Some interpret this as an "evolution of consciousness". Many religious people believe that this will be the biblical end times, a time when the wicked are weeded out and those that are left will experience a "heaven on earth".
