I heard about 2012 long before I heard about Y2K (one of the benefits of
being married to an anthropologist).

What I, originally, heard was that the Mayan Calendar “ran out” in 2012. Then
there was a mention of one of Edgar Cayce’s [whom I haven’t read in decades]
sessions mentioning 2012.

I just ran a google search on

            +2012 +cayce

to see if my memory were correct and came up with:

                               <http://www.diagnosis2012.co.uk/>

which is /really/ interesting.

In my completely ignorant opinion, this appears to be more likely than not.

Background: okay, for the last fifty years plus, the United States has had a
specific “enemy” and a number – in the last fifteen or so years – much more
nebulous “enemies”.

“Godless, atheistic, non-Biblical, anti-Christian Communism”, of course. Then
followed with what appeared to be the “new threat” of “secular humanism”.

In 1995, I was driving from Virginia to Mississppi and a Sunday and as I was
going through the Carolinas and part of Georgia, I listened to sermons from
five widely-separated stations. All five of the preachers were preaching
against this “secular humanism”. There was no doubt in my mind that this
“secular humanism” was the new “enemy”; that we had internalized the “enemy”
and as Pogo once said, “We have met the enemy and he is us”.

And it seemed to disappear as quickly as it appeared; amalgamated rather
quickly into the new, expanded and improved internal “enemy”, the rather
silly-sounding “New World Order”.

But the Y2K component ended up a bust and it – combined with the criminal
convictions of so many people who were associated with the “pay-triot and
not-for-prophet” groups – ended up with more people ridiculing – rather than
being impressed by – these groups. [end synopsis]

> Are you now expecting the Second Coming in 2012,

I think you may have asked the most interesting question of all those which
will be asked in the next eight years: is this, heck, /can/ this be twisted
from a calendar in a Western religion to a “religious event” in an Eastern
religion.

Now Edgar Cayce was a Presbyterian Sunday School teacher but – I think – he
made direct reference to the Mayan Calendar so that would, perhaps, still be
too tenuous a link to Christianity.

My guess is yes. But I still want to know
how 2012 is going to be fed to the victims.
