Phenomenon 2012 – Myth or Reality?
When the World trembles
Destructive tsunamis flooding the land, opening ground absorbing whole cities, metheorites as big as Berlin itself. That is one of the many images of the end of the world, which is predicted to take place on the 21st of December. Who saw the movie called 2012 directed by Roland Emmerich knows what I am talking about. Is anything from the film based on the truth or is everything just the conspirational theory?
21st December 2012 – Why?
This date is regarded as the end-date of a 5125-year-long cycle in the Mayan Calendar.
Is the End of the World possible?
According to the websites of NASA, there is no need to be scared. NASA scientists claim that the fear would be irrational – there is not the end of the world every single time when you have to throw away your old calendar just because of the fact that it is already the end of December. They add that the Mayan Calendar is just going to enter a new period and the mankind is going to survive. Again.
‘Do you remember all the fuss around Y2K?’ the scientists compare the apocalyptic predictions to the fear of the feared mistake that was supposed to block all the computers with the arrival of the year 2000.
Planets? Meteorites? Everything is under control…
One of the predictions says that the Earth is going to encounter disastrously with a smaller planet called Nibiru (also called Planet X or Eris). This encounter was originally predicted already for 2003. Nothing happened though and the predictions were moved forward so they would match the end of Mayan Calendar.
However, the scientists assure there is no such threat to Earth in 2012. They point out that if there was such a threat, they would be observing the orbit of the planet for more than ten years and by now the object would be visible to a naked eye.
So calm down, take a deep breath and think about what presents you are going to buy for Christmas, because even the end of the world is not going to save you. I know – the life is tough.
