Will the World End in 2012 discusses into deep details all the theories that tell that the world will end in the year 2012. Some of them pin-point the exact date as December 21, 2012, other just tell about the consequences. It discusses a total of ten theories including The Mayan Calendar, solar flares, CERN and the large Hadron Collider, the predictions of Nostradamus etc.

All the theories are discussed keeping in mind the pros and cons of it, and proper citations are given wherever needed. It is a book cum research journal (as appeared to me). While discussing the pros of any theory you will start believing that this is true, however, while discussing the cons of the same you will think how stupid it is to believe in it.

But some of the theories give enough evidence that it will happen in 2012 or someday in the future. For example, the solar flares from the sun can make earth’s magnetic field reversal. This theory has been verified by the scientists of NASA as well. Other theories fail to give enough evidence of the same. For example the predictions of Nostradamus are so vague in its writings that multiple meanings can be created out of them.

At the end of the book, there is section that if the world will end in 2012 then what can we do about it. It says to firmly believe in Jesus Christ and the Bible to be able to survive. Clearly this is not a scientific reason, but it is for the Christians. I would not recommend anyone who is reading this book to believe in what is written there. I myself didn’t read it completely. The last chapter is “The Christian’s Guide to Survive 2012”, which as you may have guessed, I didn’t read as well.

All in all it is a good read and is a real time killer. It took me around three or four days to read it completely. But I would suggest that you don’t take any of the theories seriously, because world is surely not going to end in 2012!
