2012: the end of the world?

The last year, the most famous topic was all about the end of the world. If we shut on the tv on weekends, we could watch the panelist talking about it. All this chaos is because many predictions and prophecies said that 2012 will be the end of the humanity.  For example, Nostradamus wrote a prophecy about this, but the main is Maya’s prediction. They were a great civilization because they leave us many information about sciences and astronomic. It’s unbeliever how can they predicted so many solar eclipses with a perfect precision many years ago.
 The Maya’s prediction for the 2012 was the end of the world. They made a calendar who finish this December 21st. So, all the speculations and interpretations made about this topic are related with: they predicted the end.  But I’m not sure if they would say “end of the world” I prefer to think they predicted a change in the world. A change that can shake and remake our minds, and make us to realize the damage we are doing to the world.

I think this prediction in a way can be true. It can be a way to take conscious that we are not the world’s owner.  We are just for a moment here and it is important to take care about the planet and just to enjoy its advantages.

I think if the world was going to come to an end, I would like to enjoy my remaining time with my family and friends. Just to stay together, maybe we can go to a beautiful place to take calm and be relaxed. But I think we can’t live thinking about this. Many past prophecies were not true, like “The end of the world in 2000”. Just enjoy the time… because the end can be anytime.
