There are actually only two "sides" - those who either fraudulently spout this rubbish, along with those who don't understand the reality of it - and people like me who do our best to explain exactly why it is all rubbish.
“The Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012! That’s when they predicted the world will end. It’s also when the planet Nibiru will crash into the Earth!”
The facts are:
(1) The Mayan calendar does NOT end on December 21, 2012.
(2) The Mayans did NOT predict the end of the world, on that date or any other.
(3) The planet Nibiru will NOT crash into the Earth on that date, because it doesn’t exist!
Don't you think it would be the most incredible coincidence if all these things were to happen on the same day? Doesn't that give you a clue that it's so unlikely that they will?
If anyone thinks I’m wrong, then I’m willing to bet them £10,000, which they can pay to me on December 22 when it’s obvious that these “predictions” are proven to be false.
The Mayan calendar has various time periods. We have days, weeks, months, years, etc. They had periods called b’ak’tuns and piktuns, among others. The periods are counted up, and, like the mileometer in a car, when one number reaches its maximum, it resets to zero and the next number along is increased. In their calendar, the “Long Count” reaches 18.104.22.168.0 on 21 December 2012, but that is NOT the end of their calendar - it resets the number of b’ak’tuns to zero and increases the number of piktuns - to 22.214.171.124.0.0! The calendar then goes to the next piktun on October 13, 4772.
In any case, the Mayans never predicted the end of the world on that date. My “normal” calendar runs out on 31 December, 2012. What will happen then? The end of the world? No! I’ll simply use another calendar for the next period of time - 2013.
"We are speaking out against deceit, lies and twisting of the truth, and turning us into folklore-for-profit. They are not telling the truth about time cycles," says Felipe Gomez, leader of the Maya alliance.
The impact of Nibiru was first announced back in 1995 by Nancy Leider, except she didn’t say it would hit us in December 2012 - the date she gave was May 15, 2003! Of course nothing happened, and she later announced a new date. Nothing happened then either, and then she heard about the 2012 story of the Mayan calendar and said it would happen then. It is obvious that this is all total rubbish and she is making this up as she goes along.
Leider claimed to have this knowledge by means of an implant in her brain, which allows her to receive messages from extra-terrestrials in the Zeta-Reticuli star system, which is a double star about 39 light-years from Earth. So firstly, how was this implant installed, and by whom, and secondly, any messages that she receives are coming from a star that is about 30º south of the southern-most star that can be seen from Nancy’s home in California. So if the star is never above the horizon, how do the messages reach her through solid rock?
We’re also supposed to believe that the astronomers on a planet around that double-star could detect planet Nibiru going around our star 39 light-years away, and yet although we have confirmed over 500 planets orbiting other stars, including one over 21,000 light-years away - almost a quarter of the distance across the galaxy - we haven’t seen Nibiru, which is supposed to be in our own back-yard!
To arrive on December 21, 2012 from a distance of the orbit of Pluto, it would have to be at that distance around December, 2003. That's over 6 months *after* the arrival date of May 2003 that Nancy gave us.
Of course, if it did exist, and was going to hit us hit us around 10 days from now, it would currently be around 400,000 miles away, which is less than twice the distance of the Moon. Assuming it is “only” the same size as the Moon, we would be able to see it with the naked eye. All around the world are millions of amateur astronomers, and there are also huge telescopes - yet no-one has seen this thing because it isn’t there.
Actually, something interesting will happen the day before, on December 20. At 12 minutes past 8pm it will be 20:12 on 20/12 of 2012 :) [That's using UK formatting for the date - DD/MM]
If you want to book a space presentation on real science, or to place a bet with me about these claims, write to [email protected]
So the bottom line is - Don't worry, nothing particular will happen on December 21, apart from the Winter Solstice. Oh, and a group of us are meeting up to have a 2012 Apocalypse Survivors' Dinner :)

You must be very young.
"End of the World" storied come up almost every year. I'm almost 60, and I can remember DOZENS of times when the world was supposed to end -- but I'm still here.
First off, On September 10th the Hadron SupplerCollider is going to apply power for a TEST. This is a "tuning test" to see if all the electronics work. With something this complex, it is a pretty sure bet that not everything will work. So they will have to repair it and try again.
IF everything works, the Collider won't actually "fire up" until sometime on October.
THEN . . . IF it can produce a black hole, the black hole will be the size of an atom. Black holes this size "evaporate" in less than a second, without doing any damage.
The December 21, 2012 "legend" is based on the Mayan Calender. It is supposed to "reset" on that date, and according to Mayan legends, the whole universe will ber destroyed and rebuilt.
According to Mayan legend, this happens every 5000 years. So, this has happened 5000 years ago -- and 10,000 years ago, and 15,000 years ago, and so on.
So where did cavemen and dinosaur skeletons come from? According to the Mayan legends, they should have been destroyed 5000 yeas ago. But we still find them, and we know that they are HUNDREDS of thousands, even millions of years old.
How is it possible that we would have fossils if the world is destroyed and "rebuilt" every 5000 years?
based on this, the Mayan legends MUST be false.
Fact is, all of these storied, even the ones from when I was kid, are written by unintelligent people, and the stories are written to scare little children, and other people that are just as unintelligent. Nobody is smart enough to simply use an encyclopedai and LOOK UP the facts.
SO if you're still cared of these things, then you muits be very young, or unintelligent.
Or are you one of the smart ones that can read information and find the true facts behind it, and thus not be scared of "ghost stories"?
"there are too many sides" <---- no, there aren't. There are two sides. There's the side of paranoid idiots who believe ridiculous myths and lies. These are the same people who thought y2k would be the end of the world. And 1999 before that. etc etc all the way back to the beginning of recorded history.
And there's the side of rational human beings who need at least some scrap of evidence to believe something. There is no evidence for any end of the world prophecy (which the Mayans didn't even make, by the way. Also the new Bak'tun, their new calendar, has already started. They didn't account for leap year) so there's no reason to believe one will happen. All of the end of the world "prophecies" surrounding 12/21/2012 have been proven not just false, but ridiculous.
@Matthew: Actually it's entirely possible for the world to flip magnetic poles. It happens every now and again. Granted, it doesn't happen in a day, it takes thousands of years, but yea. It does happen
A long time ago these people called the Mayans created a calendar. It ends on December 21, 2012. Starting a new cycle of the stars. Some crazy people discovered this and believe it is predicting the end of the world.
I do not believe the world will end on December 21, and even if it does, who cares, we won't be here.
Most people are not saying the world will end - the only ones that believe in this crap are uneducated or gullible and aren't willing to get the facts straight.
There are only 2 sides:
1 side is made up of con artists, scammers, nutjobs, the uneducated and the gullible. They either believe or want others to believe this hoax.
The other side is about 99% of the adults on Earth that know its a hoax.
If you want to do some real research, try here:
Nothing is going to happen astronomically that you or anyone will even notice. The solstice happens every year: the shortest day in the northern hemisphere. The various "alignments" either don't exist or are irrelevant. The links below give the most factual information I have found after searching the internet for the past 4 years.

II. How Did Christmas Come to Be Celebrated on December 25?
A. Roman pagans first introduced the holiday of Saturnalia, a week long period of lawlessness celebrated between December 17-25. During this period, Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the weeklong celebration. The festival began when Roman authorities chose “an enemy of the Roman people” to represent the “Lord of Misrule.” Each Roman community selected a victim whom they forced to indulge in food and other physical pleasures throughout the week. At the festival’s conclusion, December 25th, Roman authorities believed they were destroying the forces of darkness by brutally murdering this innocent man or woman.
B. The ancient Greek writer poet and historian Lucian (in his dialogue entitled Saturnalia) describes the festival’s observance in his time. In addition to human sacrifice, he mentions these customs: widespread intoxication; going from house to house while singing naked; rape and other sexual license; and consuming human-shaped biscuits (still produced in some English and most German bakeries during the Christmas season).
C. In the 4th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it. Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians.
D. The problem was that there was nothing intrinsically Christian about Saturnalia. To remedy this, these Christian leaders named Saturnalia’s concluding day, December 25th, to be Jesus’ birthday.
E. Christians had little success, however, refining the practices of Saturnalia. As Stephen Nissenbaum, professor history at the University of Massachussetts, Amherst, writes, “In return for ensuring massive observance of the anniversary of the Savior’s birth by assigning it to this resonant date, the Church for its part tacitly agreed to allow the holiday to be celebrated more or less the way it had always been.” The earliest Christmas holidays were celebrated by drinking, sexual indulgence, singing naked in the streets (a precursor of modern caroling), etc.
F. The Reverend Increase Mather of Boston observed in 1687 that “the early Christians who first observed the Nativity on December 25 did not do so thinking that Christ was born in that Month, but because the Heathens’ Saturnalia was at that time kept in Rome, and they were willing to have those Pagan Holidays metamorphosed into Christian ones.” Because of its known pagan origin, Christmas was banned by the Puritans and its observance was illegal in Massachusetts between 1659 and 1681. However, Christmas was and still is celebrated by most Christians.
G. Some of the most depraved customs of the Saturnalia carnival were intentionally revived by the Catholic Church in 1466 when Pope Paul II, for the amusement of his Roman citizens, forced Jews to race naked through the streets of the city. An eyewitness account reports, “Before they were to run, the Jews were richly fed, so as to make the race more difficult for them and at the same time more amusing for spectators. They ran… amid Rome’s taunting shrieks and peals of laughter, while the Holy Father stood upon a richly ornamented balcony and laughed heartily.”
H. As part of the Saturnalia carnival throughout the 18th and 19th centuries CE, rabbis of the ghetto in Rome were forced to wear clownish outfits and march through the city streets to the jeers of the crowd, pelted by a variety of missiles. When the Jewish community of Rome sent a petition in1836 to Pope Gregory XVI begging him to stop the annual Saturnalia abuse of the Jewish community, he responded, “It is not opportune to make any innovation.” On December 25, 1881, Christian leaders whipped the Polish masses into Antisemitic frenzies that led to riots across the country. In Warsaw 12 Jews were brutally murdered, huge numbers maimed, and many Jewish women were raped. Two million rubles worth of property was destroyed
