[Editor's note: Of course 2012 has long sinced passed and the world is still here, but not without having witnessing some major and harrowing Earth-changing events such as the Japanese March 2011 triple disaster: 9.0 earthquake, 40 meter tusnami, and massive Fukushima nuclear melt-down. That 9.0 earthquake was so massive it even slightly shifted the Earth's axis! Nevertheless, the future is never written in stone and destined to come to pass. Prophets of old and recent signs only point in the general direction of where history is headed or where the general pattern of energy is presently leading one toward. Because there are countless parallel "histories" beside the four dimensions of time and space, even though one may experience visions or dreams of actual events yet to happen, these events almost always exist in a probable future, and rarely in a predestined future.]
From the article: 2012 End of World Predictions - The 4 Most Popular Theories - Soon everywhere you turn people will be talking about the end of the world predictions for 2012. Do you know everything you need to know? Read this article and find out the 4 most popular theories relating to the 2012 end of the world predictions that exist.
Even Hollywood released a movie depicting very graphically through special effects mass destruction on Earth. One can only assume that as the time draws closer to the predicted end date of December 21, 2012, people will be taking a closer look and wanting to know more. You'll likely want to know what everyone's talking about so I've put together the 4 most popular theories relating to the 2012 end of the world predictions. They are as follows:
One can debate global warming until everyone either succumbs to intense heat, dehydration, starvation or drowns under 150 feet of water. There is much humanity can still do to help slow down or reverse many insidious changes in our atmosphere, but time is running out fast before a certain "tipping point" or point of no return is reached sending the earth on a terrifying runaway green-house scenario resulting in some of the worse and most far-ranging environmental catastrophes imaginable. What will most likely happen in the next hundred years? What can be done to slow these highly disturbing trends toward an irreversible global melt-down where dozens of low-lying lands, coastlines and costal cities will become part of the expanding ocean?
1. Mayan Long Count Calendar: Ancient Mayan culture studied mathematics and astronomy and were very successful in predicting events following the stars. The Mayan calendar established the beginning of time on Earth and predicted that the world would end, or at least enter a new era on December 21, 2012. The Aztecs also later concurred with the Mayan time frame and used December 21, 2012 as the end date in their calendars as well.
2. Biblical References: The bible, in the Book of Revelations, discusses the "end of days". The bible never gives a specific timeframe but describes in great detail the sequence of events that will lead up to the apocalypse. In contrast to many other prophecies, the bible very specifically states that we will not know the hour or day of the end. This has given many skeptics reason to believe that December 21, 2012 will come and go as a non-event not unlike January 1, 2000 after the Y2K scare.
3. Nostradamus: Nostradamus was a philosopher who over 500 years ago made numerous predictions many of which unfortunately have come true. Many believe he predicted the rise and fall of Hitler, the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the terrorist attacks of 9/11. He has also predicted that the world will end on December 21, 2012 with the Winter Solstice.
4. Solar Storms: Scientists are warning us of the potential for catastrophic solar storms. Storms that are so massive they will likely disable our infrastructure and economy. We would be unable to use cell phones, the internet, or have electrical power at all. Based on the scientific research and the study of the solar system, many believe that this theory is the most likely one to occur. It has already been reported that solar storms have damaged our satellites and disrupted power grids. Given that these storms are much weaker than the ones that are predicted to occur in 2012, we could be facing some dire times indeed.
Many other theories are circulating about, and you have a choice to make. Will you get informed? Or will you bury your head in the sand, cross your fingers and hope for the best?
There is a lot more information available to educate yourself and prepare yourself so that you are not caught in the rush and hysteria that will likely occur as December 2012 draws near.
Nibiru called the "Planet of the Crossing" is represented in ancient history by a cross and a winged disk reflecting the supreme deity in the Sumerian and Babylonian temples. Nibiru is also the god of 50 names and king of gods.
Planet Nibiru is also known as Marduk and Planet X. It is described by some as supposedly the twelfth member in the solar system's family of planets which includes the 10 planets, the sun, and the moon.
According to Zecharia Sitchin, Nibiru has an orbit around the sun of 3,600 Earth years. To understand Sitchin, he is one of the handfuls of people today who can translate the ancient language of Sumerians, Egyptians and Hebrews along with other modern languages. He has devoted his life on studying ancient civilizations and translating ancient texts, cuneiforms and clay tablets.
Global WarNing We are in immediate danger!
A Message to Humanity - Humanity's present momentum of continuous growth in urban sprawl and population cannot be sustained without seriously destroying some of the earth's most vital resources. For every square mile of heavily populated urban land, there needs to be at least fifty-five square miles of clean farmland and unspoiled wilderness area to support it. While the oceans are being filled with toxic pollutants and vast amounts of trash, many species of fish and whales are constantly being threatened. The more people living a high-resource consumption lifestyle, the more species of vital plants, trees and animals will become extinct. Read the book for incredible stories and some amazing solutions...
The Sumerians, the oldest civilization on earth, wrote into tablets a very detailed map of the galaxy with each planet precisely sized and positioned correctly. Zecharia Sitchin's key ideas are based on the assumption that ancient myths are not myths but historical and scientific texts. According to Sitchin, ancient Sumerian clay tablets reveal that gods from Nibiru arrived on Earth some 450,000 years ago and created humans. These gods are called Anunnaki. Anunnaki means something to the effect of "those of royal blood or "princely offspring" or "those who came from heaven to Earth". The theory is that Anunnaki came to Earth in need of gold to protect their dwindling atmosphere. Exhausted and in need of help in mining the gold they use their genetic knowledge to create the needed Primitive Workers and they created the first homosapien.
Nibiru is a planet that orbits our sun every 3600 years. It got its name from being an elusive planet. It is suggested that current astronomy points to the possibility that Nibiru is a brown dwarf or dark star rather than a planet. This has the implication that our solar system, like the majority in the known universe, is a binary star system; in other words, Earth has two suns with Nibiru being the second and less bright. The first real pictures of Nibiru were photographed shortly after January 26, 1983. The astronomers calculated at that time that Nibiru was over 50 million miles away from us. In 2004 Nibiru was determined to be only 7 million miles away. Confirmation of the twelfth planet Nibiru was photographed in Japan on February 28, 2008. It exists, and it will be on Earth by the end of 2012. Nibiru will appear as two suns in the sky no later than 2011.
Many theorists say that when Nibiru passes Earth on its 3,600 year orbit around the sun, it might bring terrifying consequences. They fear that this will cause earthquakes, tidal waves, severe flooding, food shortages due to climatic conditions, diseases, meteor fire storms, volcanic eruptions and the like. They are afraid that it will result in a great catastrophic infliction and will cause loss of life on Earth. All these theories stemmed up because according to ancient texts when Nibiru came into the Earth's solar system it caused The Great Flood that occurred around 11,000 BC.
When we delve into the past and become aware of our origins, our world and our universe, it seems overwhelming with all its wonders. But time, the eternal eye, will provide more information to us when we need it.

2012 Disaster Scenarios - What Are the Terrible Events We Must Prepare to Survive?
There are nine possible cataclysmic events for 2012 that would create disaster conditions of a scale that humanity has never experienced before. We're talking millions, maybe billions of dead worldwide, and a breakdown of society that may take a thousand years to recover from If it ever recovers at all. But if you're properly prepared all these scenarios are survivable. So as every good soldier knows, we need to get acquainted with the enemy, so we can figure out the best way to beat him.
Here they are in no particular order
Unrestricted Global Nuclear War
There are a lot of bad guys out there these days with nuclear capability. From a survival point of view it doesn't matter who starts it or why, because the end result is the same - global cataclysm straight from hell. So given your family survives the initial atomic blasts and their immediate effects, there are a couple of other major things to worry about - Radiation and the Nuclear Winter.
Atomic reactions create radio-active particles which spread out from ground zero, and when they reach high altitude are fanned out by high-level winds. The radio-active particles eventually make their way back down to earth as 'Fall-Out'. 'Fall-Out can cause burns and terminal radiation sickness, kill livestock and contaminate soil and the crops that are grown in it. A massive region around the Chernobyl Reactor in Russia is essentially dead ground forever, and that was just an itty-bitty reactor melt-down, not a multi-megaton airburst.
When you've got a lot of massive atomic explosions at ground level, an incredible amount of dirt and debris is going to be thrown up into the atmosphere - we're talking millions of tons of black radio-active dust swirling around ten miles high, blocking the sun from reaching the Earth's surface. We might not see the sun again for two or three years, and without it, it's going to get real cold and nothing's going to grow. Huge areas of the planet will turn into dust-bowls and sand storms will blast across Europe and North America.
However there will be places mostly in the southern Hemisphere and in the North that are far enough from blast zones to escape most of the radiation and fall-out, and are protected from most of the effects of the nuclear winter. That's where you want to you and your family want to be to maximize your chance of staying alive in 2012.
Impact from Space
This is the very worst of all worst case scenarios. Whether it's the mystery planet Nibiru, a comet or a monster asteroid, having a massive Near Earth Object (NEO) smash into the Earth is all bad. So if you're ready to survive this you're ready for anything! Earth has experienced major NEO strikes many times before, and the biggest of all 65 million years ago made the dinosaurs extinct, overnight. If a NEO hits land we'll get a situation like the nuclear winter we talked about above, plus a devastating shock-wave, molten lava showers, earthquakes, landslides and volcanic eruptions.
Not even all the atom bombs in the world going off all at once would have a millionth of the power of a NEO impacting our planet. The NEO Impact winter could last decades and plunge the Earth into a new ice-age. If a NEO lands in the ocean we'll get multiple tsunamis many hundreds of feet high, plus giant earthquakes caused by displacement of tectonic plates that make up the Earth's crust. Low-lying counties will be turned into fetid swamps, ravaged by disease.We're likely to get very little warning of an asteroid strike - maybe only hours or even minutes because they travel so fast and are almost invisible against the blackness of space.
On the other hand we may have several months to prepare for an impact by Nibiru or a comet. Unfortunately they are the least likely objects to hit us. So what will it be like in the aftermath of a NEO impact?
Arriving at the speed several thousand miles per hour a giant NEO will have enough power on impact to fracture the Earth's crust and splash molten lava from the core high into the atmosphere. A massive thousand degree shock-wave will also radiate outwards from Ground-Zero completely levelling trees and buildings for a hundreds of miles in every direction. In an ocean impact, seawater will combine with the lava to cause a super-heated steam blast, plus acid rain. This burning rain would continue falling for years, scouring away every living plant and contaminating all water sources (other than artesian springs in the mountains). To survive a massive NEO strike you'll need to be far underground, and far from the point of impact to stand any chance at all. However there is still a good chance that the NEO that hits Earth will not be a giant, and that increases your chances of survival massively - as long as you're prepared that is. Otherwise, no matter where you are, it's time to kiss your ass goodbye.
The sun is an enormous atomic reactor in the sky. Every now and then extra intense reactions in the sun's atmosphere occur and solar energy spears out into space. That's a Solar Flare. Small Solar Flares are detected by astronomers all the time and usually don't affect us, because our atmosphere safely absorbs and deflects the extra radiation. But, if 2012 means a giant Solar Flare, the Earth's surface and everything on it could be barbequed in minutes by radiation spread across the whole electromagnetic spectrum. We'd have enough warning to get into bunkers, but only if they were very close by. How bad it will be for your family also depends whether it occurs in the night or day - you definitely don't want to be outside at noon when a doomsday flare bursts overhead.
The good news is it's relatively easy to build a shelter that will absorb almost all the energy of a Solar Flare, even a giant one, so surviving the event isn't necessarily the hard part. The real challenge will be staying alive afterwards in what's left of the world outside your shelter.
Super Volcano Eruption
Mount St Helens or Pinatubo are nothing compared to the dormant super volcano that forms Yellowstone National Park. An eruption there would kill millions and render a large portion of central North America uninhabitable. The rest of the world would suffer too from the enormous cloud of volcanic ash thrown up into the atmosphere, creating yet another nuclear winter scenario. However Yellowstone is just one location where super volcanoes are lurking ready to erupt, on land and under the ocean.
A monster undersea eruption would be even more deadly, triggering a super tsunami that would travel all around the world, wiping out entire countries as it goes, drowning millions and millions of people within hours. For most people in coastal areas, even low lying places inland, there would be no escape. However those families smart enough or just plain lucky enough to be in non-volcanic areas, on solid ground at over 1000 feet in elevation, will be in better shape - but for how long?
It's not a question of when 'the big one' will happen, but where and when. Major displacements of many of the world's biggest tectonic plates are well overdue - including California's mighty San Andreas Fault, which would kill millions in LA and along the West Coast.
The very worst place to be in an earthquake is a city, especially in a high-rise building, or in the streets below. Damage from most earthquakes on land, even massive ones are usually quite localised, but if we get one under the sea we get a Tsunami.
The Indonesian Tsunami of Christmas 2005 killed over one hundred thousand people - drowned or crushed by falling buildings and tumbling debris, or dying later of disease and starvation. If you saw the footage of the FBI carpark during the Samoa Tsunami in 2009 you'll take Tsunamis very seriously - and that was only 3 feet high!
I guess it's pretty obvious where you want to be to avoid a giant Tsunami? Up very high, far away from the sea. The trouble is, with this scenario like most of the others, the disaster itself is not the only threat - you need to be prepared to deal with other people who've survived, but haven't prepared for it like you have. Most of them will be desperate, and will want what you've got.
Super Virus or Bacteria
The biggest killers in recorded history have been diseases. The Black Plague of the 14th Century was an incurable bacteria spread by fleas living on rats. In some European towns up to 90% of the population was wiped out. Overall in the 100 years of the Black Plague, 30% of the population of Europe died. And much more recently, within living memory in fact, the Influenza Pandemic of 1919 killed tens of millions all over the world.
New disease threats are arising all the time. We've handled Bird Flu and Swine Flu pretty well, but will 2012 be the year when the next real plague arrives. International air travel virtually guarantees its almost instant global spread, especially to people living in big, overcrowded cities.
And that's the clue to survival in this scenario. Fit, healthy families who live in remote rural areas in clean, warm houses and have absolutely minimal contact with the outside world, should be feeling pretty good about their chances.
Polar Reversal where the magnetic field of the Earth swaps ends is a fact. It happens every 400,000 years or so, but what causes it is still unknown. Polar Reversal could be due to the influence of an undiscovered Black Hole nearby in space, or a massive sudden upsurge in electro-magnetic activity on the sun.
Some 2012 experts believe a Polar Reversal will cause the Earth to start spinning in the opposite direction - a horrifying scenario resulting in massive electrical storms, tsunamis and earthquakes in every corner of the earth. Again the smart money is on surviving underground in the mountains. And preferably ancient mountains made of solid rock like the mighty Appalachians.
Black Hole in Space
We touched on this scenario before, but now we'll get more specific. A Black Hole is what's left over when a giant dying star collapses into a very dense ball of Matter - a ball much smaller than our Moon. This stuff is so dense that a matchbox full of Black Hole Matter would weigh countless thousands of tons. And the thing is that it still has the massive gravitational pull of the huge star whose death created it. In fact, its gravity is so strong that it can swallow up anything within millions of miles - it even pulls in light (which is why they are called Black Holes, because not even light can escape them).
A Black Hole suddenly appearing in space, even within several Light-Years of Earth would pull our entire solar system towards it, throwing the orbit of every planet out of kilter. We could collide with Venus, Mars or the Moon. Or the combined gravitational pull of the Black hole aligned with Jupiter and Saturn could rip us away from warmth of the sun, or send us plunging towards it. Either way, the surface of the Earth would quickly become uninhabitable. The only place to survive would be underground in caves or bunkers.
The Bible tells us that Noah had 100 years warning of the Great Flood and used his time to prepare for it, building the ark and collecting animals. We will not have the luxury of so much time to get ready if another great flood is going to engulf the world in 2012. Around 60% of the world's population live in areas that would be totally submerged by a flood of only 20 feet high. That's almost three billion people threatened with being drowned. The panic as they all try to get to higher ground simultaneously is almost unimaginable. And for most of them higher ground will be beyond their reach.
Already the threat of Global Warming and the gradually rising sea levels that will come with it has lead a lot of people to think about the consequences for them and their loved ones if this scenario comes to pass. However a flood in 2012 would come much more suddenly - accompanied by massive hurricanes with hundred mile per hour winds and days of unrelenting torrential rain. Roads will be made impassable within hours. Remember Hurricane Katrina? This will be 1000 times worse.
So what could cause the next Great Flood? The most likely scenario is a near miss by Planet Nibiru. If Nibiru passes between the Earth and the Sun, its gravitational pull could upset the Earth's orbit pulling us closer to the sun, resulting in a rapid increase in air and sea temperatures. The warmer conditions would mean much faster evaporation of water into the atmosphere.
At the same time Nibiru's near miss would accelerate the speed that the earth spins, causing the Jet Stream (high altitude winds) to speed up as well. And as anyone who knows their weather can tell you, when rapidly rising, hot moisture-laden air and the Jet Stream meet you get one thing - Super Storms. And here's the thing, we won't get just one Super Storm. We'll get hundreds all over the world, with rain like no one has ever seen before, maybe not even Noah.
But that's not all. Even folks living on a lot of the Earth's higher ground won't be safe. Widespread catastrophic landslides would come hand in hand with the 2012 Great Flood. Sodden hillsides would give way without warning and plunge to the valleys below, carrying with them whole cities. In recent years landslides have killed countless thousands in South America and China.
The Alaskan Tsunami of 1963 was caused by landslide triggered by an earthquake. The end wall of a fjord collapsed into the water, sending a wave over 1000 feet high towards the ocean, obliterating everything in its path.
Of course the survival solution to this final scenario is pretty clear. Be in mountain areas where the high slopes are primarily made from solid, stable rock, and make sure to stay out of the valleys, which due to the heavy rain will rapidly become raging torrents.
OK so that's the bad news. Now let's see what we can do about helping your family to survive the worst 2012 can throw at you.
