2012, The End Of The World?

why does the sun go on shining?
why does the sea rush to shore?

Don't they know it's the end of the world?
Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars glow above?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everythings the same as it was?
I can't understand, no I can't understand
How life goes on the way it does?

the song by : Skeeter Davis


Have you ever heard the song? the title is End Of The World. I've heard it since junior high school. First time i hear it, i love it suddenly, may be because its melody and the meaning of it exactly.

By the way, the end of the world emerging discussed several times recently, especially the presence of film 2012 in the world, very interesting public interest from small children until adults. In infotainments on tv share it too until get conversation with a leader MUI (Majelis Ulama Indonesia) who boycotted the film, because according to him, the film has elements of ethnicity, religion, race, customs or we called it SARA, and of course particularly offensive religious affairs. Because, according to him (again), in film the people who go to church salvation and the people who were killed in the mosque because the mosque collapsed and shattered. And at the end of the film there are many people who get salvation after it.

In fact i don't relly know about that because
I didn't watch the movie, hehehe, because exams a.k.a UTS :(

But i think, when i wacthed the reviews in some media, it doesn't describe the end of the world but just a big disaster in the world.

Because, firstly, the director of 2012,
Roland Emmerich, is a 'disaster director', why did I call it? He was directed many disaster films like The Day After Tomorrow, which also tells about a disaster, big disaster, a big tsunami in New York. So, the films of him have a strength of mind, imaginataion i mean. That's cool i think. But, many people assume it is a fact that will happen like in film 2012. Secondly, if it was described what will happen at the end of the world, why still there are many people who survived the disaster?

So obviously this movie did not provide a description of the end of the world, because the end of the world would have been much much much more sinister than what is portrayed in the movie. There is no reason for us to assume after watching the movie that the end of the world in 2012. Only Allah knows when that day will come.

I think the truth is going to change what we do as human beings before that day comes, not disputed that when the day comes..


May Allah Almighty always protect us, aamiin
