all power is in His hands.  We are not going anywhere.  Don't listen to predictions of doom. 

The Mayan calendar, like many ancient calendars, had long cycles...2000 years, 12,000 years, more. 

Their calendar cycle simply ends in 2012...not the end of the world...just that calendar cycle.

That's all.

they just never did the calculations for the next cycle.

Many here will agree with you that Odin will not distroy the world. He is one of the many gods who will stand with man at the end of things.

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. Marcus Aurelius

It's nice to see a thread started here that doesn't predict an imminent apocalypse.

"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives." -- General Smedley Butler: War is a Racket (1935)

"War is mankind's most tragic and stupid folly; to seek or advise its deliberate provocation is a black crime against all men. Though you follow the trade of the warrior, you do so in the spirit of Washington — not of Genghis Khan. For Americans, only threat to our way of life justifies resort to conflict." - General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower: Graduation Exercises at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, USA at 3 June 1947

Yes it is Laughing

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle
Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. Plato..

My understanding. 

Yesterday, in America, 100 million gun owners did nothing.

Point of order: Who's hands are "His" hands?

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

I prefer Dr. Horrible.

Sounds more like Dr Strangelove to me.
