Could the "end of the world" actually be the beginning of a better world?

I was just thinking and reading about the Hindu long count calendar, yes almost exactly like the Mayan calendar. According to the Hindu’s we are in the age of Kali Yuga, the intellectual dark age and are progressing towards the Satya Yuga, the intellectual golden age. And yes the changing of ages happens in 2012. Why is there such a huge connection between these two cultures from across the globe? I hope something does happen.

I do as well.
I don’t know how well we’ll all handle it quite frankly.

We are in the age of… ? Now, considering a baby is born and doesn’t know our language, trying to explain this to the baby, who just knows what’s going on and reacts completely and innocently sincere to everything, your thread is irrelevant. As there are many others. :) Welcome to the age of shut the fuck up. You’re gonna experience it. And it’s going to be from someone way younger than you.

Were the world to end this year, all that would happen is that one planet out of some hundred billions would be gone. Reality isn’t as anthropocentric as one may think or hope. Such predictions based on ancient calendars are as groundless as Camping’s judgment day prediction of last year, and just that the two calendars appeared to link the approximately same date to an event doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. In addition, the calendars were made before the inception of leap years by Caesar, and with the leap years omitted by the Mayans taken into account, the date of the alleged age change would be about 10 months ago.
