Hi Whyvillians! I was watching the news a few days ago and saw the Japan tsunami and earthquake, so it inspired me to go and interview some Whyvillians about 2012 and what their opinions of all these tragedies are. It's been a devastating 11 years, from 9/11, to the Haiti earthquake, and now Japan. I went to ask a few Whyvillians what their opinions were and what they were thinking about all of this.

dxdxdxdx: Do you believe 2012 is going to happen? Why or why not?

Krissai: Haha no! Scientists are wrong because they thought it would end in 2000, 2005, 2007 (I think) and now 2012, wrong.
iIIness: No, I don't believe it's going to happen. All the events that are occurring right now are just coincidental.
Laughter6: Not really. I'm not particularly religious, so I believe that if the world does end, it'll be because of the sun exploding or something like that, which won't happen for a long while.
SpOrTyAx: I think there's more of a no chance than a yes, but there are many possibilities in the world. I think no, because what other predictions have we made, and yet we were wrong?
Joker63: No absolutely not, I will be terrified though. A small part of me thinks we're all going to die! That part is very small though.

dxdxdxdx: What do you think will happen on December 21, 2012?

Krissai: Christmas preparations, I honestly don't think the world will end. I think they made up the movie 2012 for nothing I guess.
iIIness: I think nothing will happen on December 21, 2012. It might snow a lot, but the world will definitely not end that day.
Laughter6: I think a lot of people are going to commit suicide, and break laws, but on the 22nd nothing will have changed.
SpOrTyAx: For some reason, I think there will be rain/snow. But other than that, nothing so severe.
Joker63: Nothing maybe something. I'm not sure if humans can predict the future.

dxdxdxdx: Do you think the tragedies in Japan and Haiti mean anything in regards to 2012?

Krissai: No, earthquakes are earthquakes. It happens, right. There's been earthquakes before this was even predicted so it's just normal.
iIIness: Like I said before, these catastrophes are just merely coincidental.
Laughter6: I think the tragedies in Japan and Haiti are just tragedies. Things happen. It's terrible, but that's how the world works. It doesn't have to be some outside force.
SpOrTyAx: Maybe.
Joker63: Well, this week in school I heard that there was a supermoon coming this Saturday night. That means that the moon will be the closest to the earth it has been in 18 years. Also it happens every 18 years too. Apparently (according to my classmates) two weeks before the last supermoon there was another huge earthquake. I think these earthquakes correspond to the moons gravitational pull not any recent disasters.

dxdxdxdx: What is your true opinion on the 2012 theory?

Krissai: True opinion, stupid, wrong, not going to happen, it's all wrong.
iIIness: I don't believe that the world will end come December 21, 2012. With all these documentaries on TV regarding this so-called "Doomsday", it does nothing but add fuel to the fire, and make people think that the world will really end.
Laughter6: I think it's just like all of the other end-of-the-world theories. Like the one about 6/6/6, or 1/1/00. It's something people made up for entertainment, and some people took it too far. It's interesting that that's when the Mayan calendar ended, but I don't think it was a prediction.
SpOrTyAx: I really think it's not going to happen in 2012, but it can possibly happen. I know I have said I don't believe it, but part of me is anxious to see what does really happen. Something inside me is telling me to fear 2012, but the strong part of me is just telling me to embrace the fear.
Joker63: I think its possible that something happens, I don't think it would be the end of the world though, that is unless the polls shift and we drift off into space.

dxdxdxdx: Why do you think 2012 would happen?

Krissai: If I did, I would think because of all the mean mashing up together and God is getting angry and he just wants it to end and start over and make WORLD history.
iIIness: If I did believe that 2012 will happen, the reason would be is because we are abusing our planet. We are depleting our natural resources, and taking them for granted.
Laughter6: I don't. There's no scientific evidence to suggest that anything that would be that catastrophic could happen anytime within a year. The only thing I can think of that could possibly cause that would be a nuclear war (WWIII). And even then, it wouldn't mean the end of the human race.
SpOrTyAx: I partly think it will happen because we've had so many disasters over the years that weren't man's fault. But one question, why 2012?
Joker63: Well I'm a religious person, not a fanatic but I think God is pretty upset with humans right now.

It seems that most Whyvillians agree that 2012 probably will not happen; but I'm sure there are some out there that may think that it can happen. I personally think that it won't happen, but all the things that have been happening lately have been starting to shift my mind a bit. I think there may be something that could happen, but not sure what. I believe humans are taking advantage of our resources and I think we need to think about the consequences.

A special thanks to Krissai, iIIness, Laughter6, SpOrTyAx, and Joker63 for their fantastic answers!

Until next time,
