The Theory of the 2012 Apocalypse It's been everywhere, in fact you must be living under a rock to not have heard of the 2012 Theory. To brush everyone up, the 2012 Theory that everyone talks about is based off the Mayan calendar ending in December 2012, thus signifying the end of the world. To start, lets determine what the word apocalypse really means. To most people, you say apocalypse and they imagine balls of fire descending from the heavens, and the world being obliterated by rampant disease and chaos. Quoted from Wikipedia "An Apocalypse (Greek: ?????????? ApokÃ¡lypsis; "lifting of the veil" or "revelation") is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. the veil to be lifted", i.e. the apocalypse does not necessarily mean widespread death and destruction, but perhaps the Mayans predicted something else... Lets jump around a bit, you'll see where I'm going shortly, to the Zodiac. Time as we know it is divided into categories lasting 2000 years. The Age of Pisces started in 1 A.D. and ends approx. 2000 years later. It could hypothesized that 2012 does not stand for the end of the world, but merely the end of an age and the ushering in of the Age of Aquarius. What do you guys think?
