      Just as I thought, the 2012 end of the world theory is just a matter of misrepresentation of the Mayan Calendar reckoning. Initially when I heard of this prediction I thought it was just a Mayan prank. If you want credible and tested information on the end of the world the prophecies of the Bible is the only source to consult. Although you will not find a set date in the scriptures as to when the world will end, you will certainly find consistent prophetic accounts among the writings of prophets from various eras and social backgrounds validating that fact.
