A Facebook poll of 338 Bible readers showed that 96% did not believe the end of the world would be on December 21, 2012. Further, 3.8%, said they were ‘not sure’, and only 0.59% (or 2 respondents) marked ‘yes’, that they believe the end of the world is indeed December 21, 2012.
The poll was conducted through the King James Bible Facebook page on December 14, 2012, which currently has more than 112,000 likes, and 33,714 active participants. The outcome of the poll was reminiscent of a similar poll done earlier this year related to Harold Camping’s Judgment Day Prediction.
People have made doomsday and end of the world predictions for many generations. The Bible is clear that such predictions are without merit. Mark 13:32 says, “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.”
