I recently watched the movie "2012." I do not think that the world is coming to an end then, but it could happen. I went ahead and saw the movie out of pure curiosity. How did they think the world was going to end and how would people react once they were told about the impending doom? I think the movie did a good job of showing how people would react. For instance, the rich Russian guy paid one billion euros for his seat and his sons' seats aboard the ship that was hopefully going to save some people from getting killed. Money itself is just a piece of paper but people give so much more "worth" to it. The scientist wanted everyone to have a chance to get on the ship, not just the richest people in the world. I hope if it is ever announced that an earth-shattering event is going to take place, more people will be like the scientist. After all, it is not money that makes the world go round, it is love. Love is what is worth living for and dieing for. So, if you have not checked out the movie, I highly recommend it. It is a great movie that illustrates what truly matters and what some people thinks matters.
