Quran and prime numbers   " ... It is therefore expected some 31 events to take place between January and November 2012 each lasting four days and if the events are any kind of meteorite shower then each event will leave a trail around the whole the Earth as it spins on its axis four times in four days. Each such event therefore would leave a trail along a specific latitude and the above verse numbers (13, 16, .., 77) could be these latitudes. If the first event of 7th Jan 2012 occurs along latitude 13 then we all know the next one will be 16, followed by 18 and so on. In all cases, 2012 is not going to be the end of the world as there is also an indirect reference to the year 1619AH some 180 years after 2012 and God knows best and controls all.

Biblical scholar's date for rapture: May 21, 2011  "... Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he'd found: The world will end May 21, 2011.This is not the first time Camping has made a bold prediction about Judgment Day. On Sept. 6, 1994, dozens of Camping's believers gathered inside Alameda's Veterans Memorial Building to await the return of Christ, an event Camping had promised for two years ... But the world did not end. Camping allowed that he may have made a mathematical error ... sfgate.com (site accessed Jan 10)

Mongolia - Winter Solstice   " ... There are several Shambhalists here in Ulaan Baatar who are predicting that the Final War between the Forces of Shambhala and the Barbarians will also begin in 2012. They swear up and down that this has nothing to do with the whole Mayan Calendar Business. According to these sources, the signal in our three-dimensional world that the War would begin in the near future was the Destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas in March of 2001 ... Keep in mind that even if the Shambhala War does begin in 2012 we will probably not notice any immediate effects in our three-dimensional world. The War will be fought in another dimension, and subsequent events in our mundane world will be a mere shadow play of a much vaster cosmic conflict ..." doncroner.net (site accessed Dec 09)

2012 Bible Prophecies   Growing hysteria over 2012 has led to a stunning new book that reveals Jesus’ words as coded prophecies! Dr. Wayne Stanton is a mathematician and leading expert on the four gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Using a complex system based on numbers that recur in the Bible and Aramaic letters in words spoken by Jesus, Dr. Stanton has arrived at a formula he says shows that Jesus’ words carry a deeper meaning than anyone ever dreamed. In the untitled upcoming book, Dr. Stanton writes: “Jesus was talking on two levels. On the first level, He was teaching us about the Kingdom of Heaven and how to achieve it. “But beneath the surface, when His words are mathematically analyzed, He is also telling us about future events. “Some of these events are exciting and optimistic – such as a wonderful rain that will fall in Southern Asia in 2011 and heal millions of sick and handicapped people. “But he doesn’t spare us the bad news, telling us exactly how and when the world will end – a 2012 war that will end in great nuclear fire in 2014.” worldweeklynews.com (site accessed November 09)

2012-2015 and the Second Coming " ... In order for the ‘Second Coming’ of Jesus to coincide with the 2012-2015 date range; the Church would have to be Raptured no later than the end of 2008 ... I also believe the anti-Christ could use the hysteria of the ancient Mayan calendar to prop himself up ...“He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws.” - Daniel 7:25a (NIV) Could the end of the Mayan calendar, dated for December 21, 2012, be the perfect vehicle for anti-Christ to accomplish just this? I believe it very well could. christianworldviewnetwork.com (site accessed Aug 2008)

The coming of Bhagwan Kalki   " ... Adharma (lawlessness) would be rooted out for ever. 2012 and beyond is the period of spiritual elevation. 2012 rings start of golden era. Beyond 2012 it shall be harmony and peace all over ... 2012 is the year of the Avatar of the era (god almighty manifest in human form)... people await with abated breath the coming of Bhagwan Kalki... one who delivers the mankind from the existing ills of today. Bhagwan Kalki would be a spiritual master of the highest order with the deadly combination of a wise dictator (Chanakya of the modern era). In the domain of Bhagwan Kalki... the delivery of the judgment would be instant. No courts, no hearings... judgments in 2012 would be delivered based on the evidence from the masses. Almost equivalent in power, it would be difficult to distinguish Bhagwan Kalki from Lord Krishna. godrealized.com (site accessed June 2008)

The End (the Great Tribulation) Cannot Begin Before 2012   "...The Bible shows that one is coming called "the King of the North". However, prior to being referred to as "the King of the North" he initially appears to be referred to as a "prince" in Daniel 9:26-27 (one is normally a "prince" before one becomes a "king"). As this deal has still not been made, this would suggest that contrary to claims of various false prophets (Ronald Weinland of CGPFK comes to mind) the great tribulation will not begin prior to 2012 ..." cogwriter.com (site accessed May 08)

Global economic collapse and one-world government by 2012, says evangelist   "THE world as we know is vanishing and will disappear in an earth-shaking series of Year 2012 events that are clearly laid out in prophecies appearing in the Holy Bible for everyone to see. And contrary to what many clergymen have told their flocks, that God frowns on fortune-telling and has hidden the future from us, an increasing number of religious experts - from Pope Benedict XVI and the Rev. Dr. Billy Graham to hometown ministers from coast to coast - are taking a closer look at Bible passages, prophecies and symbols and using them to predict with startling precision what they are convinced is the shape of things to come ..." derekclontz.com (site accessed Mar 08)

The 2012   Thread on the Catholic Discussion Forum. In answer to a worried parent, a respondent says, "Jesus said, when asked about the date for the ending of the world, that 'no-one knows the day or the hour, not even the Son (Christ himself) only God the Father who is in heaven'. So don't pay attention to anyone who claims to be able to foretell when the world will end. They can't. There have been many many many - too many to count - people making such predictions on a regular basis right since the time of Christ. None of them have come true."
