So are you ready? According to some, it is now less than three years away, the end of the world that is. That’s right, according to some doomsayers, December 21st, 2012, marks the end of the 5,125-year cycle of the Mayan calendar.

What does that mean? It depends. To some, it means various doomsday scenarios, others feel that it simply signifies that the cycle will start over, much like in a much simpler fashion Saturday brings about the end of the week and on Sunday the week starts over. Others feel that it was just the point where the Mayan calendar makers got tired of making calendars.

But those who take it serious, are really taking it serious to the point that NASA has been getting emails from teenagers who are worried the world is doomed.

Here is what we do know from the bible. We do know that this world does have a life span, a best before date so to speak. And we know that that date is not 11:11 GMT on December 21, 2012, because Jesus told his apostles in Matthew 24:36 that nobody knows the day or hour when that will happen. Presumably that includes Mayans.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
