Default Should apocalypse predictions be kept secret?

So, I'm pretty sure all of you know that 2012 is supposed to be the world's apocalypse according to an anciant Maja legend (I'm not sure if that's correct though). But, first of all, do you believe that? I mean, it's not completely out of the question, but is the whole word just going to be destroyed in the course of one year?

Second, do you think they should be held secret from the public? Was it a good idea to make it into a movie, or do you think this will cause panic all over the continents?

I believe that the world's doom is just a story, a mere legend that was created from ancient cultures that believed in different gods, religions and other things. IF the world is coming to an end, it would be slowly, due to the climate change and the sun's heat. The Global Warming will end more and more lifes from year to year. That is what I think.

Also, making the entire prediction into a movie was a bit ... well ... dumb, to be blunt. I mean, the movie is surely great (haven't seen it yet though) but it probably also caused panic in some way, since some people are bound to be a bit intimidated by all those floods and earthquakes and lava and bla.

But that's what I think, what do YOU think?

So, debate away !

Monstrous joy,

And yet as I fall
all I can do,
is watch
while I'm falling through air.

The Apocalypse cannot be predicted. It could end at pretty much anytime.

Then shouldn't we already have time travel if the present is the past of the future? You're welcome for the mindrape.

I think the universe will end before the world which will end before humanity.

I think the Mayan calendar ends in 2012, nothing to do with apocalypse. And besides theres only a slim chance they could actually predict it anyway.

I haven't seen the movie but to me it seems kind of stupid.
