Today is December 21st 2011. One year from today is when lots of people are saying the world will end or mostly end because of some nonsense about the Mayan calendar. It’s all nonsense. One year from today, nothing will happen except maybe some morons going nuts.
The “Mayan calendar” only ends on 12/21/12 in the same way a 2011 calendar ends on 12/31/11. The world isn’t going to end on 12/31/11, and it’s not going to end on 12/21/12 either. The “Mayan calendar” that ends in 2012 is known as the long count calendar. The Mayans actually had several long count calendars, some of which have already “ended”. If you think Mayan calendars mean anything when it comes to the end of the world, then since some of the long count calendars have ended already means the world has already ended several times over. Everything is a figment of your imagination.
Penn & Teller when they had their Bullshit! show did an episode on 2012. They talk to various scientists plus experts in Mayan culture and history including an actual Mayan princess. All of them say that the world isn’t going to end on 2012, especially the Mayan princess. (The video of that episode is below, but parts of it are NSFW):
Neil deGrasse Tyson, author and director of the Hayden Planetarium, has also been active explaining 2012:
NASA put out this video explaining some of the facts about 2012:
A year from today I am going to write another post title, “We’re Still Here” because we will all be still here. End of story.
