Religious leaders in the Lodi-Galt area generally don't take much stock in a movie now showing at Lodi Stadium 12 that predicts the end of the world on Dec. 21, 2012.

The two-and-a-half-hour movie, called "2012," depicts an ancient Mayan belief that the world will end in three years with all sorts of natural disasters taking place. Directed by Roland Emmerich, the movie stars John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Danny Glover, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton and George Segal.

    My Hallmark calendar stops abruptly at December 31, 2009. What do you think the Hallmarkians were trying to tell us?

    Actually, the Mayans did not predict -- nor do their ancestors believe -- that the world would end in 2012. It's an urban legend that seized the throne of prominence after Y2K fizzled. Everyone knows the world won't truly end until we engineer robots that become intelligent enough to turn on humanity and launch a war to end all wars. Sheesh.

    Christ will return someday however, No-one knows when or the date that he will return. If you want to have enternal life with Christ then you have to be ready for when he does comes. I will be watching the movie tomorrow.

    Those stupid Mayans should have read Revelations before coming up with their stupid calendar. They would have known their beliefs were silly!

    Really, is there anyone here that believes in the 2012 thing?Now I do admit that I watch the specials on tv, simply because I like disaster shows. One scientist made a point of saying that the celestrial alignment in one theory has already passed (when the greatest influence was happening) in 1996.
