It was a good run while it lasted. According to some conspiracy theorists, the world will come to an end on December 21st 2012 at the end of the Mayan calendar. But the U.S. Government and NASA want to assure people that we will all still be here on December 22nd. To convince naysayers, NASA released a video entitled “Why the World Didn’t End Yesterday” explaining why the world will not end. Check out the video below…
The video continues to explain why the Mayan calendar is more advanced than anything we have seen today in our modern world but also explains the cultural and mathematical differences between Mayan and Western ideals. The biggest misconception about the Mayan calendar is that it doesn’t end but rather it rolls over like a car’s odometer.
Recently, NASA scientists gathered on Google Hangouts to debunk any end-of-the-world scenarios for the thousands that decided to join them. It’s interesting that NASA released this video yesterday, on the 11th, a full 10 days before the alleged end of the world. Did that many people need convincing that the apocalypse will not happen on December 21st?
So please, rest assured! There is no rogue planet called Nibiru on a collision course with Earth. The Sun will not explode and everything will be OK. We can all enjoy 2013 when it comes around in a few weeks. But if NASA is wrong, no one will ever know the difference because we will be all dead.
