I have a question that has to do with the swine flu and the end of the world.?
you know how everybody is saying the world is gonna end on december 21st 2012, because a bunch of historical stuff says so? and how the swine flu has recently reached Level 4 of a pandemic situation in less than a month. and it's obviously getting worse as time goes by. do you think the two toppics are tied into each other? and why do you think so? don't be rude. I just want to hear other peoples opinions.
Additional Details
its not just the aztec calender people! indian tribes, the echang calender, and countless oricles have predicted the same thing around the same time. but as far as the flu, I agree. its not connected.

anything is possible really i personally think that if the world is to end any time soon it would probably happen because of the swine flu, at least that's what i think.
ps. im sorry if this comment scares you


Dr. Who?
The "end of the world" doesn't "happen" until 3 years from now. Do you think the siwne flu would be around that long? And if so, what would remain of the human population?

I don't think the world will end in 2012, because all that historical stuff and be countered back as positive, and 2012 is just when the Mayan calendar ends, thousands of years ago they probably didn't need to write more of it.

Lots of pandemics and epidemics have happened in the past like the plague, and we had a Spanish flu back in 1918. But they didn't last for even a year and lots of poeple still lived.

Doctors have made a medicine called tamiflu to fight the swine flu if you get it, and they have enough for atleast 500,000 people, and they are probably making more of it.


The world will probably NOT end, and the swine flu will blow over eventually. I doubt they have a link together.

DONT WORRY!
pandemics happend about every 20-30 years. We survive!
dont worry about 12/12/2012 because the world was suppose to end on 6/6/06 and it didnt so just dont worry about it..

This swine flu is just a FLU! NO ONE in the US has died from it yet!
It's just like getting the flu! People really need to stop making this flu like it is the END OF THE WORD ! CAUSE IT"S NOT!!!
haha =]

I have the exact same question. But now I'm kind of worried, because I live in Arizona, and all the states around Arizona, (INCLUDING THE COUNTRY MEXICO) are near me, because I live in Southern Az. I am 13, but it could kill anyone. I think that if you just keep yourself clean and wash your hands A LOT, stay away from sick people you'll be fine. It kind of reminds me of those zombie movies, not trying to make you scared, or anything. I hope this helped somewhat!

Well let's see.
Both are overrated in the media.
Too many people are freaking out about it.

Yes, it IS related.

Good question, I wish I knew. However, is it possible the Swine Flu will be a Pandemic, I think it's possible, do I think it's gonna happen, no. I think our technology nowadays is pretty advanced and I think they will find some kind of cure or immunization before it does.

Now do I think that the world when end on 2012, absolutely not. The bible states that there will be 7 years of tribulation and I don't believe it has started yet. The bible says those 7 years will be tragic, just keep your eyes open for a peace treaty with Israel. I don't have my bible with me, but I'm nearly positive it will happen around that time, if the rapture doesn't come first. For those who don't know, the rapture is when Jesus returns for his "Disciples", all the Christians, and leaves the rest of the world to suffer, and hopefully realize he is the Lord. He's given everyone a very fair chance to believe in him, some people are just afraid of the truth.

No Swine flu will not wipe out the the USA... Dont Worry... BEST ANSWER???


Gradu807
I don't really know...I try not to think about it. But based on certain theories its believed that the world will come to an end when events we can't control begins to happen......such as an health outbreak (swine flu_ which i believe we can survive through) ....War......economy begins to falter (recession_ yet we are not in a depression) ..crime rate goes ups (unemployment can cause this again recession).. In all a huge pandemonium. Again I try not to think about it.....

I do think these things are tied together. But I also don't think it (12-21-12) is going to be the "end of the world". I think it will be a change of how we live our lives. The Hopi tribe said it would be the end of one age and the beginning of a new age. I'm worried about the approach of that date, but only because the future is unknown. But to answer your question, in the case of this flu, take care of yourself and your family. Things will be just fine.


Kate Ellen
No one knows the date in which the world will end. It may end tomorrow, in 2050, or hell, theres even a chance it may end on that date. Of course, it could become predictable if there were a meteor hurdling towards earth or something along those lines.. but currently it is not predictable.
Being tied together, the date and the swine flu? Chances appear to be extremely slim to none. My bets are on no.
I believe the media is making the swine flu out to be worse then it is. With the use of tamiflu, and as long as people wash their hands to prevent the spread, I truthfully do not think it will become a pandemic. Chances still are likely yes, but I personally do not think so.
No worries!


Katie
A bunch of historical stuff says so? Not really. The Aztec calendar ends on December 21st of 2012. Thats their whole logic behind that, which is simply ridiculous. NOBODY can predict when the world will end. And who knows why the Aztec's stopped it there...

As far as the swine flu being tied to that, even if it were true, I don't think so. The cases in the U.S. and Canada have not killed a single person. Countries with established health care have nothing to worry about. Its just like the regular flu. Its going to kill some people with weak immune systems, but it definitely won't kill everyone. We've all had the flu, and we are still standing.


Friendly Neanderthal
This is a very good question. Plus, the economy crisis. I think that maybe they could be tied together, because in my opinion this is getting kind of coincidential. I mean, Bird/Pig/Human? WTF is that?

Ugh. The end of the world... it isn't going to happen in 2012. More than likely it won't anyways. The worlds supposed to be gone and dead, but hey it isn't! So why worry about that?

MRSA was big too, that was a pandemic, a mini one. And no. They aren't tied with each other, I am sure.


Apollo
Here's a little history for you, during the time when mathematicians were calculating the year, they made a little error. The actual year is 2013. Also there are only a few cases in the United States and Europe. The only reason that it is spreading largely in Mexico is because of the health regulations in that country are poor and allow slip ups. So don't worry about the end of the world. And just to say, the end of thee world is suppose to happen Dec. 21 2012, not 2009. The "pandemic" (pandemic means world wide infection) of the Swine Flu is just in the region of Mexico, which is an epidemic (local infection).

haha my friend once said "the aztec calendar ends in 2012 cuz the aztecs died in 2012" hahahahahah

i don't believe in either a swine flu pandemic or the aztec prediction.


SayWhat?

Probably not. I don't think we'll actually have an apocalypse in 2012 just because the Mayan calender ends. But I do hope the swine flu doesn't get too much out of hand before we find a cure.

The AZTEC thing is crap. The potential of pig flu becoming a pandemic is real. Do not mix the two.
