Although we’ve just begun a new year, according to the Doomsday Clock, which is used to figuratively measure society’s fate, we have less time on Earth than we thought.

Because of the predictions of the Mayans and Nostradamus, many believe that 2012 is the year the world will end. And according to the clock, that time will be 11:55pm on New Years Eve.

The clock is managed by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, who were established to raise awareness about the threat of nuclear weapons, climate change, and other cataclysmic events. Despite not really being tied to the end of all humanity, but rather the threats that we face each year, many serious scientists contribute to the setting of the clock. And because of heightened threats, this is the first time the clock has moved forward since 2007.

The Doomsday Clock dates back to 1947 when the threat of a nuclear world war loomed large, and scientist hope that this current warning will cause others to take notice and get more involved in determining the direction of our future.

Do you think 2012 will be the end of the world?

    I thought simply it was the Mayans CALENDAR that ended in 2012…not necessarily the existence of life, but a mere stone tablet with engravings carved, ENDED…but not the people; not us, not life.

    Folk been saying the end of the world issa coming since the Bible days. I won’t say I’m ready or not, but I will say that I’m at peace and that everyday is a battle to keep the peace I have in my life…meteor plunging to decimate the Earth, notwithstanding. LOL I might freak out for a minute, but peace. PEACE…and no worries. Akuna Matata!!! Did I answer the question?

    I used to believe it was 12/21/12 because of the Mayan calendar, but now I’m not so sure it will end at all in this year. But I’m ready for whatever, whenever ….at this point just living everyday to the fullest is the best I can do.
