What did you feel on December 21, 2012, the date in the Mayan calendar when, according to many, a global change would occur? Depending on what you have been waiting for, you may feel relief, disappointment or indifference. Was that one more of many wrong predictions about the end of the world?

Others are fascinated by doomsday images of the end of the world. And many are simply tired of hearing that the end is near. But aren't these feelings a reaction to the fantastic stories rather than to the truth?
