2012 Predictions

The End of the Mayan Calendar in 2012


The end of the Mayan calendar occurs in 2012 -- at least, the end of an important cycle in the Mayan calendar. What will happen in December 2012? Natural disasters? Unnatural disasters? Will the world end?

Here's a selection of websites that go over 2012 predictions and prophecies. I attempted to include only the most informative sites (believe me, there are some... questionable ones out there). In the end, we probably won't know the truth until December 2012 actually rolls around. But whether you're a believer, a skeptic, or a little bit of both, you'll find these 2012 predictions interesting to peruse.
