We are a small group of friends who are interested in Doomsday Prophesies. We were especially interested in the belief that the Mayans had decided the world would end in 2012. Where do these End of Days theories come from, and what basis in reality do they have? Do they mean a literal end to the world, or do they denote a significant shift in the world? Why do people believe these theories, and what happens when the date passes and nothing happens? We’re interested in all these questions, and hope to answer them (and other things you probably didn’t think to ask but want to know) through this blog. Welcome to 2012: The Beginning.
