Like most other mis-information there's a money motive in the background. Such "predictions" are being used to promote web sites and books.

From the link below:

"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."

I. You need to find out what you believe.
II. Realize we are born to die.
III. People always say the world is ending, but it never does.
IV. Live your life and do not worry about the end.
V. Many people felt like you at one point, (even me in 2000), waisted my time.
VI. Live, be productive, live for whatever God you believe in, remember we are born to die, you never die before your time.
VII. You are born with a brain, heart, and gifts. Use them. If you sit around worrying you will become weak and depressed.

-When you can learn this, your fears will leave. If this doesn't help, you might need to learn how to cope with your fears.

*"Fear" will control your life if you do not get the proper help that fits you.

-Sometimes you need to live through it and learn that there is nothing to be worried about.

-The only thing to worry about is school, work, health, diet,etc. Worry about how you are living not how your dying.

I really hate the "World Ending in 2012" crap. What could you possibly do to prevent it, if it were true? The notion that the Mayans invented a calendar that foretold the end of the world is simply ridiculous. More likely they ended the calendar to coincide with the end of winter solstice, and would then make a new calendar, you know like we do every year!

I'm embarrassed to admit it... but at the end of 1999, I totally laughed off notions that world was going to end, that ATMs and computers would stop working, etc... but at the last possible moment, I withdrew more cash than I usually kept on hand, printed out all my important papers (I was in college then), and bought tons of freeze dried camping meals and stove fuel from REI and got gallons of water. I felt soooooooooo stupid after that. I could have been having fun instead of working myself up about nothing.

Just live a life you can be proud of and the death part will be a lot less stressful.
