Will The World End In 2012?
In this book the author researches 10 different possible end of the world scenarios. They are: The Mayan Factor, Solar Storms, CERN and the Large Hadron Collider, The Predictions of Nostradamus, The Coming Reversal of the North and South Magnetic Poles, Collision with "Planet X", Earth's Alignment with the Galactic Plane, Eruption of the Super Volcano, The Web Bot Project, and last but not least Religious Predictions of the end of the world.
Now it never really answers the question Will The World End In 2012? but I think that this book was very well thought out and researched. Glad to have read it. There was very good points to each scenario that would point one way or another. I never knew there was more than the Mayan calender ending, so that was surprising to learn about. I read this book all in one day, so was a pretty quick read.
I overall was disappointed in the book. I was expecting to see proof that each scenario was untrue, but some he actually supports more. So without it answering the question specifically it is kind of misleading in it's title.
