Will The World End in 2012? by Raymond C. Hundley

Following the craze of End Times predictions and major motion pictures, Dr Raymond Hundley has compiled a list of 10 theories surrounding the year 2012 in his book, Will the World End in 2012?

He begins each chapter with a short, fictional blurb to set the theory in place and proceeds to analyze the prediction.

First up is the Mayan calendar. It is said that the Mayans believed in time cycles. According to their long calendar, the current cycle will end on December 21, 2012.

Next is the fear of solar storms. Scientists predict the Sun will produce intense solar activity that will burst through our atmosphere and destroy our electrical systems and possibly cause earthquakes.

Third is the fear that the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland will create a black hole and suck this planet into oblivion.

Fourth, Nostradamus. He made some interesting predictions about the future but are they applicable to us?

Fifth is the reversal of the magnetic poles. Basically what used to be north will now be south and vice versa. Included with this reversal is a huge tsunami.

Then you have the collision with Planet X as told to a woman by aliens, an eruption of a super volcano underneath Yellowstone National Park, Religious End Times predictions and others.

Even though Dr. Hundley professes to be a Christian, he allows each theory it's due credit. After showing the pros and cons of each, he then offers his conclusions.

Some of these theories are probable while others are just silly. I can't tell you which may occur, you have to read the book.
