The Jehovah's witnesses accurately predicted the return of Jesus in 1914 (but you wouldn't notice  that 'cos it's a subtle thing). They ought to have fixed a date for Armageddon by now, but despite the sound and solid infallability of their Bible the best they can do is "any day now", or "fairly soon".
They Mayans have been dead for centuries, why do people think their stuff is better than anyone else's?

Jehovah's witnessess haven't attemted to predict a fixed date for Armageddon because they beleive in the Bible, the Bible says that at this time even Jesus and the angels don't know when armegeddon is going to occur, only god. Jesus also commanded to keep on the watch BECAUSE the end is coming as a theif in the night.

.  hmmmmm  If The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit are all one and the same (Holy Trinity), how can He keep secrets from Himself?

Jehovah's Witnessess do not believe in the Trinity, in fact, with that reason in mind. It doesn't make sense either that Jesus would pray to himself. Or, since they know that God created Jesus (e.g. it refers to Jesus as the firstborn of creation, the Bible outwrightly states that God created Jesus, and Jesus refers to God as his Father.) it doesn't make since that God would create himself. Also, the Bible states that no human can see God, then how could they see Jesus when he was on earth?

 Yes, it's the things where people are very precise about things that have already happened of little consequence, but vague / ambiguous about the important bits that I was referring to.

I would direct you to the excellent Skeptoid podcast on this issue, or the equally excellent SkepDic entry. If these debunkotrons don't convince you (or any of the people who are freaking out), I would be quite happy give you $100 now in exchange for you signing a contract to hand over all of your worldly possessions to me on December 24, 2012.

everyone thinks that because that is when the mayan calendar ends well my belief is that we as a nation are going to be in soooooooo much crap that we are slowly going to die (the U.S. not the people) and the citizens will become more stupid and we will live in a hellhole so it might seem that the world ended but it really did not........................that or aliens will actually blow the world up after they abduct some people to take to their planet

I was teasing about the year 2000, because we had no crash.

2012 is not really a prediction, it is as far as they took their calendar and that was it. People read into it things that aren't there so they can live in a fantasy world....
