TUNE IN: Fox News Reporting Takes a Look at 12.21.12 and the Mayans' Doomsday Prophecy

Mankind has long been fascinated with Doomsday and hundreds of thousands of predictions have been made about the end of our world. While most of these are associated with the Second Coming of Christ, the focus is now on the Maya Civilization of Southern Mexico and the end of their calendar on the Winter Solstice: December 21, 2012.

Fox News Channel correspondents began investigating the Countdown to Doomsday last June on the Summer Solstice. Adam Housley explores the mystery of the Maya and why Doomsday

has been pinned on them.

At the battlefield of Armageddon, Lauren Green investigates the Book of Revelation's end times battle between Good and Evil and the belief that "second coming of Christ" is imminent.

    It is a fact that the Maya Calendar will end on 12.21.2012. But, don't believe the hype... the world is not about to end.

    Debunking the Doomsday scenarios are astronomer Anthony Aveni, physicist Michio Kaku, archaeologist Christopher Powell and author Graham Hancock. Psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow tells why the idea of a Doomsday is appealing to some people.
