There are apparently many different ideas as to what 2012 is going to mean. Firstly, this is all based off of the Mayan calender, which, allegedly, (I love that word) only went up to 2012, meaning that whatever High Priest, or High Priest's administrative assistant set the calendar up, didn't have any engagements scheduled for 2013 or later. I'm not a Mayanologist, nor do I play one on TV, but if the History Channel has done a show on the subject, I'm going to have to take it with an ocean full of salt.
That being said, lets take a look at a few of the possible ways we'll be saying "adios" to Life, the Universe, and Everything:
This one was a favorite of a former coworker of mine. It's actually one of the least crazy things I heard him say. Also known as Planet X, Nibiru will collide with Earth, obviously causing a few scratches to Earth's finish. The only problem is that no reputable science agency has proven the existence of a previously unknown planet on a collision course with us. Yeah, I could see that the governments of the world might know of the existence of Nibiru, and they're just hiding it from us so that there won't be any more rioting in the streets than there already is. But there are plenty of amateur astronomers out there, and if the Internet serves one purpose (other than posting pictures of cats) it's to post things the government doesn't want you to know. Now I'm no exoplanetologist, nor do I play one on TV, but I'm sure that if you can see Jupiter with the naked eye we would all be able to see Nibiru by now. Or it could be that the Nibiru has been behind the sun all this time, which I found - after a quick Google search - is a theory.
Ah yes. The old "Aliens are coming for our *blank*" theory. They're usually after human slave labor a la Transformers 3, or our yummy mineral resources a la every other alien invasion movie. Or maybe they just want to hunt us like in the last Predators movie. Never saw any of those movies. Anyhow, I'm no alienologist, nor do I play one on TV, but if a race of beings was advanced enough to travel thousands-if not millions-of light years to visit earth, wouldn't they be above such human pursuits? Now where's that picture of the Ancient Aliens guy?
