Join HISTORY for a thought-provoking exploration of the 2012 Doomsday Prophecy. A surprising number of sources, both ancient and modern, agree that the world will end in 2012. Could we be such a short time away from annihilation? Decide for yourself with THE 2012 ANTHOLOGY. On-site investigations and revealing dramatizations flesh out the sobering prophecy. Respected scholars offer balanced analysis of doomsday predictions. Common wisdom has it we prepare for our future by understanding our past, but did the ancient prophets already know the future? Are we living now in the world they predicted? THE 2012 ANTHOLOGY revisits the prophecies and divinations of the Ancients and traces them to the modern events they may have been predicting.

MAYAN DOOMSDAY PROPHECY:
The ancient Maya predicted more than 2,000 years ago that the world is coming to an end on December 21, 2012. By tracking the stars and planets the Maya assigned great meaning to astronomical phenomena and made extraordinary predictions based on them--many of which have come true. Could their doomsday prophecy be one of them? In insightful interviews archaeologists, astrologers, and historians speculate on the meaning of the 2012 prophecy.
The ancient Mayan Calendar, the medieval predictions of Merlin, the Book of Revelation and the Chinese oracle of the I Ching all point to December 21, 2012 as the end of civilization. Skeptics point to a long history of "Failed Doomsdays", but many oracles of doom throughout history have a disturbingly accurate track record. As the year 2012 ticks ever closer we'll speculate if there are any reasons to believe these doomsayers.
Doomsday threats range from very real to controversial to futuristic. Witness amazing applications in the works, wonder at the limitless promise, and hear warnings of a possible nano-doomsday, with tiny, out-of-control machines devouring everything around them. Next, we stir up a hotter topic--the connection between global warming and fossil fuels--and ask if they're cooking up a sudden, new Ice Age. And we examine 21st-century technologies that typify the dual-edged sword of Doomsday Tech with massive potential for both creation and destructionnanotechnology, robotics, and cybernetics.
MORE DOOMSDAY TECH:
The second deadly installment examines more threats--both natural and manmade--that may endanger civilization. From the far reaches of space to tiny viruses, doomsday sources are many. But so are technologies used to keep doomsday at bay. Asteroid hunters demonstrate the Near Earth Asteroid Tracking program and methods being developed to destroy earth-aimed asteroids. Then, it's onto bioterrorism's sinister technologies--how highly virulent agents like smallpox and plague can be weaponized. Next, learn how vulnerable the nation's computers are to cyber-terror. Finally, we visit the controversial world of biotechnology.
THE LOST BOOK OF NOSTRADAMUS:
Nostradamus, historys greatest prophet, is credited with predicting some of the worlds most shocking events hundreds of years before they ever took place. Now, HISTORY reveals a recently unearthed manuscript containing cryptic predictions that may have been written and illustrated by the famed prophet. This feature-length documentary examines the book to shed new light on Nostradamus most famed prophesies and uses forensic analysis to determine its authenticity. Nostradamus words and illustrations are brought to life through state-of-the-art CGI animation and dramatic reenactments.
Whatever is in store--a massive cosmic collision, a global environmental disaster, an Armageddon-like religious showdown, or a more subtle transformation--many believe that December 21, 2012 will mark a major shift in the history of our planet. This special looks for the parallels between the nightmarish daily headlines and the 2012 prophecies from Nostradamus and others. From the mystical realms of the Guatemalan jungles to the Hopi elders and Mayan shaman to respected thinkers of the modern age--Nostradamus' doomsday warning will be cast in a frighteningly modern context.
SEVEN SIGNS OF THE APOCALYPSE:
War, famine, plague According to the Book of Revelation in the Bible, these are three of the four horsemen of a coming apocalypse. The fourth? The anti-Christ, in human form, walking somewhere among us. Could this 2,000-year-old prophecy actually come true? And could it be about to happen today? This fascinating special decodes the ancient prophecy, which actually consists of seven signs within seven signs within seven more signs, and examines whether any of them could be linked to actual or potential occurrences today. We also explore what would happen if the seven-signs prophecy were to unfold right now. A word of warning: the prophecy ends with Armageddon, the final battle between good and evil.
What have past acts of destruction taught us about what will happen to mankind after the apocalypse? Is it inevitable that disaster will someday strike America on an unprecedented level? History's most dramatic events--Hiroshima, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and others--are examined and analyzed with hard data gathered from their massive aftereffects. The disappearance of water and food supplies, the effects of deteriorated sanitation and health care on the remaining population, and the increased use of violence as a means of survival--all illustrate how societies have responded and survived.
Does a remote island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean hold the final clue to the Mayan's apocalyptic predictions concerning 2012? One explorer thinks he's discovered the answers that have eluded man for centuries. Jim Turner stumbled on this remote artifact over a decade ago and has spent the past ten years preparing an expedition to prove that this is the place they foretold that the gods would come to watch the final minutes of civilization as we know it.
