December 12, 2012 is NOT the date of the apocalypse. Many other dates were set as the end-day, but time still went on after that.
This is the date that the ancient Mayan Calendar says that this era of time will end. According to the Mayan, the human race will "change." Some have speculated that it will be a change in our politics, culture, climate of the world, or even evolution. Others believe nothing will actually happen on this date.
Person 1: OMG!!! The world's gonna end in December 12, 2012!!!
Person 2: No it won't!!!
