The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs according to which cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on December 21, 2012 This date is regarded as the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar.. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae related to this date have been proposed.
A New Age interpretation of this transition is that this date marks the start of time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation. and that 2012 may mark the beginning of a new era. Others suggest that the 2012 date marks the end of the world. or a similar catastrophe. Scenarios suggested for the end of the world include the arrival of the next solar maximum, or Earth's collision with a black hole, passing asteroid or a planet called "Nibiru".
Scholars from various disciplines have dismissed the idea of such cataclysmic events occurring in 2012. Professional Mayanist scholars state that predictions of impending doom are not found in any of the extant classic Maya accounts, and that the idea that the Long Count calendar "ends" in 2012 misrepresents Maya history and culture. Astronomers and other scientists have rejected the proposed events as pseudoscience, stating that they are contradicted by simple astronomical observations.
The plot follows Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) as he attempts to bring his children, Noah and Lilly (Liam James and Morgan Lily respectively), ex-wife Kate Curtis (Amanda Peet) and her boyfriend, Gordon Silberman (Thomas McCarthy) to refuge and attempt to escape the heightened change in the elements. The film includes references to Mayanism, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar and the 2012 phenomenon in its portrayal of cataclysmic events unfolding in the year 2012. Emmerich has announced that the film will be his last involving disasters.
The film was internationally released on 13 November 2009. It received generally mixed to negative reviews from critics and its worldwide theatrical revenue reached approximately $769 million.
Certain things must be understood before a 21st century person can make any sense out of Daniel 12:8-10. Otherwise everyone who looks at these verses will indeed suffer the "brain freeze" here suggested, and indeed "not understand".
Dr. Robert F. Holt, MD, MPH, a lifelong student of the books of Daniel and Revelation, and a graduate of both Washington Adventist University (formerly Columbia Union College ) and Loma Linda University School of Medicine and School of Health (BA, MD, MPH) uses all his accumulated skill in decoding Bible prophecy and various types of Bible Codes to make a prediction of what is coming upon our world beginning in the year
based in part, but not completely on Daniel 12:8-13
Note that I will NOT be making a prediction of a Second Coming of Jesus Christ in the "clouds of heaven" in 2012 of either the type predicted by the Millerites in 1844, or by certain Pentecostal and Evangelical would-be prophets during the years 1988-1994 or by Harold Camping in 20011. This prophecy will be different!
