2012 meh!, we had a good run!
2012 is sometimes claimed to be a great year of spiritual transformation (or apocalypse). Many esoteric sources interpret the completion of the thirteenth B'ak'tun cycle in the Long Count of the Maya calendar (which occurs on December 21 by the most widely held correlation) to mean there will be a major change in world order.[who?]
Accordingly, several eclectic authors claim that a major, world-changing event will take place in 2012:
The 1997 book The Bible Code claims that, according to certain algorithms of the Bible code, an asteroid or comet will collide with the Earth.
The 2006 book 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck discusses theories of a possible global awakening to psychic connection by the year 2012, creating a noosphere.
Other prophecies and apocalyptic writings and hypotheses for this year include:
Terence McKenna's numerological novelty theory suggests a point of singularity in which humankind will go through a great shift in consciousness.
Freedom Tower in New York City: Construction will be finished.
The sun will reverse its own magnetic poles during 2012 as result of reaching the end of the current 11-year sunspot cycle.[11
it amazes me how often i keep coming across this year and how many people from different areas of study believe this date to mean something
a Christian historian believed the chamber way in the great pyramid was actually a timeline that predicted events including the birth of Christ,
guess which date he said it ended at
its also possible in Christian belief because of the creation of Israel and the Jews are waiting for a red calf to be born as a sign to rebuild the temple
Too many construction delays for the Freedom Towers. Remains are still being found and most recently, concrete pourer's union went on strike. Doesn't look good for the projected 2012 completion date.

mayan calendar is a joke! mayans had the world figured to year 2012, but the world was over for the mayans in about 1600 or something like that. WAY over-optomistic. Smart buggers to make that calendendar, but why stop at 2012? END OF THE WORLD or did they just figure that is far enough for now,.... coacoa-break.
