2012 The End Of The World

History has a long and rich tradition of apocalypticpredictions – all of which were wrong – yet some people still think that this time 'roundin 2012 is the real deal. Why 2012éBecause of ancient Mayan calendars. Obviously. Mayan calendars not only recorded the daysand years, but also longer cycles of about 5 Millennia.So they could easily make calendars that went 1,000s of years into the future. But, of course,1,000s of years in the future from 1,000s of years ago brings us to current times whenthe Mayan calendars stop in 2012. Modern newagey people decided that the wiseMayans stopped making calendars because they

knew when the world would end.And because new agers are happy – though scientifically illiterate – people theirvision of 2012 was a great spiritual awakening or world reboot or other hippyconsciousnessexpandingnonsense that the Mayans, who spent time puling strings of thorns through peoples' tongue,probably didn't have in mind. To a normal person the thought that: calendarfinishes therefore end of the world is an odd conclusion to draw.After all, the amount of time in the Universe is infinite and the amount of stone is limited.So, at some point the Mayans had to stop carving calendars.But never mind.

What should have stayed a fringe belief turnedinto mass hysteria with the 2012 disaster movie that swept the academy awards and thenumerous emmynominated apocalypse documentaries on::sigh:: The History Channel.What happened to you guysé Anyway. After this NASA became so inundatedwith questions that they had to take time away from their busy robot building, frontierpushing, knowledge expanding, civilization inspiring schedule, to write a webpage explainingthat no, a humansacrificing, stoneage society with neither wheels to pull carts nor glassto make telescopes, didn't know more about

science at the dawn of history than real scientistsdo today. But the parade of crazy marched on anywaymaking wilder and wilder predictions for Earth including:• Geomagnetic Reversal (a process that unfolds on a geologic timescale, not a single day)• A collision with mysterious Planet X (That no astronomers have found)• A local star going supernova (Despite there being no such candidates)• An Alien Invasion (Which is ludicrous on the face of it… or is ité)• And a galactic synchronization beam, whatever the hell that is.A sane person, at this point, would wonder

how the Mayans were able to predict astrophysicalanomalies thousands of years in advance and millions of miles away yet didn't foreseethe Spanish coming across the Atlantic. And that's because the Mayans never predictedapocalypse. The only people to claim the Mayans knew about the end of the world were distinctlynot Mayans.�.
