Is the World going to End today?

Word on the internet is spreading like wild fire that the world as we know it will end today 21/12/12. Today is the final day in the 13th 144,000-day cycle of the ancient Mayan Long Count Calendar otherwise known as the Mayan apocalypse. The end of the world is nigh, or so apocalypse observers would have you believe.
The Mayan and Hopi Mesoamerican Long Count calendar may have begun in 3114BC and continued unerringly ever since, but it comes to an abrupt halt on 21 December 2012. Hence, the belief gaining ground among those who fall for this kind of thing that the cosmos will cease to exist today.
Lets watch and see whether these apocalypse observers are right of if this is going to be just another publicity stunt.
