The 2012 phenomenon is a range of beliefs and proposals positing that cataclysmic or transformative events will occur in the year 2012. The forecast is based primarily on what is claimed to be the end-date of Mayan Long Count calender, which is presented as lasting 5,125 years and as terminating on December21 or 23, 2012.

Arguments supporting this dating are drawn from a mixture of amateur archaeoastronomy, alternative interpretations of mythology, numerological constructions, and alleged prophecies from extraterrestrial beings. The claims put forward by those predicting the end of the world in 2012(alignment with a black hole, collision with a rogue planet, polar shifts) have been rejected as pseudoscience by the scientific community. Many of these claims violate the laws of physics, or are contradicted by simple observations.

Question: Will the world end in 2012?
Answer:--- The world will just 'NOT' end.

This question has been the burning issue for quite sometime now. Is there really a need for us for panic? If we have trust with innocence in our sciences then one word answer to this question is " NO".

In a rare campaign to dispel rumours fueled by the internet and a Hollywood movie titled 2012, the scientists of NASA have said that the world is not coming to an end on December 21, 2012. The movie 2012 shows the end of the world, supposedly based on theories backed by the Mayan calender. The doomsday scenario revolves around claims that the end of time will come as an obscure Planet X -------- or Nibiru ------ collides with earth. The mysterious planet was supposedly discovered by the Sumerian, according to claims by pseudo-scientists, paranormal activity enthusiasts and internet theories. Some websites have accused the US space agency of concealing the truth about the wayward planet's existence, but NASA has denounced such stories as an "internet hoax". According to a report published in a British newspaper, NASA said, "THERE IS NO FACTUAL BASIS FOR THESE CLAIMS." IF SUCH A COLLISION WERE REAL, NASA AGAIN SAID, "ASTRONOMERS WOULD HAVE BEEN TRACKING IT FOR AT LEAST THE PAST DECADE, AND IT WOULD BE VISIBLE BY NOW TO THE NAKED EYE, OBVIOUSLY, IT DOES NOT EXIST.CREDIBLE SCIENTISTS WORLDWIDE KNOW OF NO THREAT ASSOCIATED WITH 2012 AND OUR PLANET HAS BEEN GETTING ALONG JUST FINE FOR MORE THAN FOUR BILLION YEARS."

NASA further said on this subject with the scientific clarity as ------ 'Initial theories set the disaster for May 2003, but when nothing happened, the date was moved forward to the winter solstice in 2012, to coincide with the end of a cycle of the ancient Mayan calender. NASA insisted the Mayan calender does not in fact end on December 21, 2012, as another period begins immediately afterward; and it said there are no planetary alignments on the horizon for the next few decades. Even if the planets were to line up as some have forecast, the effect on our planet would be "negligible".'
