Fact or Fiction?!
Views of major cities crushed by a variety and series of natural calamities, giant waves rushing over the highest peaks of the Himalayas, and the headline "We Were Warned". Well, 2012 was just a flashy, big-budget disaster movie released in November of last year that focused on a group of humans struggling to survive in the aftermath of an enormous global apocalypse. However, many people believe that the world is actually going to come to an end in December of 2012, the 21st to be precise. Large numbers of people across the globe want to know if "Doomsday 2012" is indeed a fact or fiction? I know I have wanted to know the answer to this question.
Some experts believe that there is a comet planet called Niribu that will return to the center of the solar system in 2012. This will cause all sorts of destruction, maybe even leading to the end of the world. These same experts believe the ancient Mayan prophets through the Mayan calendar predicted the end of the world on December 21, 2012. But is it true? The ancient Mayans, who were very advanced in astronomy, created a calender based on several counts. The “long count” will expire on December 21, 2012. Nobody doubts that as is simply a fact. That is when the long count expires, that is the end of the calendar according the ancient Mayan calendar. But the question is that just because the Mayan calendar is going to run out on December 21, 2012, does it also mean the world is going to end? And there is going to be a huge apocalypse?
In all the books about Nostradamus' predictions there is no mention of 2012 anywhere in any of them. This concludes that Nostradamus simply didn’t make any 2012 predictions about the end of the world or any apocalypse. Even if somebody does come up with something that they want to link to 2012, there is absolutely no proof that any of it is relevant.
This is what NASA has to say, "Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012. Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. They claim a relationship between the rotation and the magnetic polarity of Earth, which does change irregularly, with a magnetic reversal taking place every 400,000 years on average. As far as we know, such a magnetic reversal doesn’t cause any harm to life on Earth. A magnetic reversal is very unlikely to happen in the next few millennia, anyway.Today NASA astronomers are carrying out a survey called the Spaceguard Survey to find any large near-Earth asteroids long before they hit. We have already determined that there are no threatening asteroids as large as the one that killed the dinosaurs."
