Talks about the end of the world have once again sparked- mainly due to the fact that the hourglass is running out.

According to the Mayan calendar, the world is goin to end on the 21st of December. This will mark the end of the Mayan 5,125-year-long cycle of the ancient Mayan calendar.

But how exactly will the world end? Will it be with a bang? Or will we just disappear? Here are a few theories.

Earth will collide with a massive rogue planet.

Believers in the Nibiru Cataclysm think Earth will collide with the rogue planet Nibiru, also called Planet X.

If a planet of this size was speeding toward us, “it would be the brightest thing in the sky,” NASA scientist David Morrison tells ABC News.

While he’s likely exaggerating, there’s no way researchers would miss a planet in our solar system. I mean, heck, we can even see rogue planets 100 light years from Earth.

An “alignment of planets” will cause a total blackout.

In this apocalyptic event, the planets align in a way that creates a total blackout on Earth.

“There are no planetary alignments in the next few decades and even if these alignments were to occur, their effects on the Earth would be negligible,” writes NASA.

A massive asteroid will destroy Earth.

In this scenario an asteroid more massive than the one that wiped out the dinosaurs will smash into Earth.

Although a newly discovered 120-foot-wide asteroid that zipped between us and the moon earlier this week may have raised some hairs, astronomers are certain that no threatening space rocks will slam into us in 2012.

A massive solar flare will incinerate Earth.

Solar flares have been known to muck up power grids when they are strong enough. But in this version of the Apocalypse, doomsayers believe a burst of energy from the sun will broil our planet.

While the sun IS nearing the peak of its 11-year cycle scientists say this cycle is “wimpier” than past ones.

A polar shift will result in Earth’s destruction.

Earth’s magnetic field.

A 180-rotation of the Earth on its axis, known as “Polar Shift Theory” because the North and South poles change places, will result in cataclysmic volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis and other disasters.
