The hysteria has been building up for years, based on the belief that a Maya prophecy foretells the end of the world on December 21st, 2012.

Even the purveyors of the hysteria, some of whom have made a lot of money, can’t agree on what is actually to occur.  Some say the world will be destroyed on the 21st as a result of a collision with Planet X or Nibiru or a black hole or for some other reason.

Others predict not a destruction of the planet but the end of civilization. In a Super Bowl ad, General Motors portrayed a destruction of civilization which can, however, be survived by a man and his dog in a Chevy Silverado.  (See the commercial, on YouTube, here).

Other 2012 promoters approach it from another angle, predicting that December 21st will usher in a new “cosmic consciousness” or something like that, which is easier to climb down from than predicting something cataclysmic that doesn’t occur.
