    They think it will be the end of the world.

    There is the fear of the unknown (no one knows what will happen–or whether anything will happen!) on top of the fear of losing their lives.

    People believe that the world will end in the year 2012. Many people are quitting their jobs to prepare for the world’s “demise.” According to the ancient Mayan calender, the world only has two years, 5 months, and 2 days to exist. The movie 2012 was based on this ancient belief and has managed to instill fear into its audience.

    Controversy surrounds ideas of an apocalypse in 2012 because of differing opinions on the value of predictions made by the Mayan calender and corresponding galactic alignments.  In short, the Maya’s Long Count calender marks the end of a 5,126-year long era in 2012.  Many give significant weight to this prediction because of the Maya’s advanced knowledge of writing, math, and astronomy.  Their calender resets to year zero after 2012. 

    Additionally, it is estimated that on 12/12/12, the Sun will be in alignment with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in approximately 26,000 years.  Of course these coincidences will have people thinking, legitimately or not, that the end of the world is approaching.
