Only Noah, but I'm not sure if a flood counts as an "end of the world" event.

And we're not even sure of this. Theres no solid proof of it. So, probably not.

They did find the ark.

If you 'believe' that was it. There's been several claims of Noah's Ark being found but none have been able to prove that it was in fact Noah's Ark. I assume your talking about the on top of a mountain in Turkey one though correct? Because there's no factual proof that it belonged to Noah.

I won't ever believe it. Why? I'm not focused on religion at all, so it won't bother me. Also, NASA just said that the actual date of some of these events were yesterday, and we are still here.

Because we can.

Why do people bash COD without playing it, because they can.

Ignore it if it bothers you.

Yeah, I don't really believe the world will end on the 21st, I mean has anyone ever truly predicted a catastrophic event such as the end of the world? No. Simply No because it's never happened obviously. I can't seem to recall the name, but wasn't there some crazy christian radio host last year that predicted the rapture and it never came? well yeah he is a good example of these crazy people trying to scare the entire world into thinking we're all gonna die, without backing up with any actual scientific proof.
I actually know of a local example in my area that often goes around town with a blue apron vest with a donation bucket and notices about "the forthcoming rapture/apocalyspe", boy I just want to walk up to him and tell him how crazy he is, he never relents and i'm sure he does this schtick all year round in his free time.

I don't think something will truly end just when it's on the verge of something great. I always think to myself that if there is a beginning, there has to be an ending. But if there's an ending, there has to be a beginning.

@Aviator - Either they simply state that is their opinion (appropriately of course) or just unfairly judge it, but isn't that something entirely differne than what we are talking about here?

Because it a really famous end of the world prophecy and a lot of people are A. idiots who belive in it or B. love to make jokes about for months before to the point where they are kind overdoing it a little. and (I know it's not true but anyway) I think the Mayans were ok with ending their calander on the 21st and not making any longer is because they would be long dead already so they didn't need to worry about working on the calender anymore.

When it's been overdone to many times and it's not funny anymore it's just getting to be really annoying now.

Most experts say its not the end of the world but is just the end of a cycle

Funny thing. But I don't think the end of the world would happen individually for every time zone.
