Haven't got much time to make a very long post about what's so interesting about the year 2012 and what goes on. But doing a quick search on Google will give you quite a bit of information about it. It's the end of the Mayan calendar so that might help search a bit.

What are your opinions on this extremely interesting topic?

I think there is always some prediction about catastrophe. Year 2000, 2002, etc.

The movie looks cool: 2012 - Official Movie Site
I wonder if that is where this whole thing started from.

I think people are extremely interested in "the end of the world", "the end of civilization as we know it", etc. It's human nature to want to know how it all ends.

We've been predicting the end of the world since we could write arrows on clay tablets. Thus far it's never happened, and I find it highly unlikely that this time it will.

By 'highly unlikely' I mean "not gonna happen."

One day the world will end and one of these idiots will have predicted it right. It very well may be 2012. BAM - sun explodes, world gone. Goodbye.

The end of their calendar means the planets are lined up or something, I am sure this has happened before and will happen again.

It is just their way of defining how the calendars work. Its BS but the movie looks cool.

If use had the decency to read about it, not all predictions for 2012 are the end of the world. There are many more theories out there, there is one book I'm going to try to get. It has numerous theories all mixed in together, some are a new revolution of life for humans, others are the sun will die out.

What I'm saying is there is more than just the end of the world.

@Jordan
Yes the movie does look interesting :D

If we had no sun we would die. We would literally be like a negative 1000 degrees.

Actually closer to something like:
44 kelvin = -380.47 degrees Fahrenheit

I'm willing to read more about it but I don't know which website you've gotten your information from. How about a link? or a description?

To be honest, I don't care whatever happens. I have lost my interest in these abnormal things that seems to happen.

Or like I like to citat from...
