Apolinario Chile Pixtun is tired of being bombarded with frantic questions about the Mayan calendar supposedly “running out” on Dec. 21, 2012. After all, it’s not the end of the world.
Or is it?
Definitely not, the Mayan elder insists. “I came back from England last year and, man, they had me fed up with this stuff.”
It can only get worse for him. Next month, Hollywood’s “2012” opens in cinemas, featuring earthquakes, meteor showers and a tsunami dumping an aircraft carrier on the White House.
At Cornell University, Ann Martin, who runs the “Ask an Astronomer” Web site, says people are scared.
“It’s too bad that we’re getting e-mails from fourth-graders who are saying that they’re too young to die,” Martin said. “We had a mother of two young children who was afraid she wouldn’t live to see them grow up.”
Chile Pixtun, a Guatemalan, says the doomsday theories spring from Western, not Mayan, ideas.
A significant time period for the Maya does end on the date, and enthusiasts have found a series of astronomical alignments they say coincide in 2012, including one that happens roughly only once every 25,800 years.
But most archaeologists, astronomers and Maya Indians say the only thing likely to hit Earth is a meteor shower of New Age philosophy, pop astronomy, Internet doomsday rumors and TV specials.
Okay not even the Mayans believe this shit, nothing is going to happen on 2012 it´s going to be a normal December day.
The Earth will not end on a specific day, shit like that takes time probably millions of years before any real change can be seen.
And if you don´t believe me then take a look at this, I got some dates from history that people said where “The end of the world” dates:
Oct 3 1533 – Michael Stifel.
Oct 22 1844 – Millerites.
1914 – Jehovah’s Witnesses.
1969 – Charles Manson.
1980s – Hal Lindsey.
Sept 11-13 1988 – Edgar Whisenant.
1993 – David Koresh.
Match 1997 – Heaven’s Gate.
Jan 1 2000 – Christians.
Jan 1 2001 – Christians.
May 2008 – True Russian Orthodox Church.
All of these predictions where wrong and this is just the tip of the iceberg, there are loads more.
