Our world has already begun to change with the election of our first African American president, the Iranians capability to build a bomb, the global economic breakdown etc etc etc.
I don't know WHAT will happen but I doubt the human race will cease to exist as a whole. However, a cosmic alignment such as the one forecast not only by the Mayans but present day scientists WILL have effects.
It's important to note that A) The Mayan calendar dfoesn't end in 2012, it just rolls over. Kind of like when you get to Dec 31, the world doesn't end, you just get a new count; and B) The Mayans failed to predict the end of their own civilization, so why should we take them seriously even if they had predicted the end of the world?
Also, as far as I know, there is no astronomical significance predicted for the year whatsoever, and I'm curious as to what you're talking about there.

I mean, I seem to notice that every four years, there's a new threat to the human nation. I mean, I there was Y2K, then I heard a "World would end" in 2004, four year ago, A guy told me the end of the world was on a tuesday... can't remember which though.
I personally think it's all garbage. I think the world will end however... as soon as nuclear war happens.
JJ, since you think the worlds gonna end in 2012, I bet you that if I make a post here in 2013, you have to walk around for a whole month in your pajamas. The same pajamas. And you can't wash them. Or you.

Nostradamus didn't predict anything. He has diarrhea of the inkwell and a bunch of people pretend to interpret his writings into prediction. Anyone can babble incoherently with such volume that if you look hard enough, it might look like a vague-ish prediction of something that actually happened.
The Mayans, as I said before, did NOT predict the end of the world in 2012 at all. It's just rolling the odometer, so to speak, nothing more. I tell you what, though: if you really believe the world will end in December of 2012, I'll gladly take everything you own the day before. Since the world is ending, you won't need it anymore, right? If you're not willing to give it to me, I guess that says where your real belief lies, no?
