if the mayans prophecies were so accurate then how come they didnt see theyre downfall coming and if they did how come they didnt do something to stop it?  this 2012 crap is the same as the whole 2000 thing all over again

According to some theories, they did. I agree about 2012 though.

Scientist in the past have also said that cigarettes were good for us, carbon monoxide was harmless to the ecosystem, and by 2000 we would have master space travel within our solar system go figure

I don't buy it, it's close to impossible to predict solar flares accurately.

Ok people just because you dont want anything to happen doesnt mean its a 100% chance nothing will happen at all.
its 50/50 really no one can prove that nothing will happen unless you study everthing in the solar system and about the planet.
im not saying the end of the world but something much less has a possibility of happening

I have a theory there is no predictions Hollywood and corporate giants made it up in order to make a profit(Movies,Books,Games,Survival gear,useless crap we do not need) I mean really it is like saying Merlin or Batman predicted it. I really thinking they paid some sci fi guys to come up with the whole thing.

@"Colossus": I know nothing will happen, because predictions are bull $#!+. I'm not worried at all, you said you can't prove it isn't real but I don't have to. That's one of the dumbest arguments known to man, just because you can't disprove somethings existence doesn't mean that's proof for its existence.

the truth of it is we cant know whats going to happen the world could end tomarrow or a billion years from now and when it does end there will be absolutly nothing any of us can do to stop it so worrying about it is pointless especialy if youre worrying because a 3 hundred year old hunk of rock says to

Look the earth is been here for billions of years, it was here then and it will be here next year and the next and the next... The Mayans probably figured:
 
"What the hell? We're been extinguished in a week? Well then why keep on making this calendar?! To hell with it! I'm going to Mayan Hooters.." Walks away
 
That's what the man making it thought..

Science isn't about searching for answers. It's about asking the right questions.
