Mayan Calendar Doomsday Prophecies a Hoax, Says NASA

Predictions about the end of the world on Friday, December 21 are reaching a fever pitch. From rogue planets to shifting poles, the crazy ideas put forth for how humanity will soon perish resemble countless past doomsday prophecies that haven’t come true.

It seems that NASA has decided it is its responsibility to debunk all of the Maya Calendar rumors. Already, NASA scientists have participated in an hour-long discussion of how end-of-the-world predictions are not based on reality. In fact, NASA is so confident the world will not end that it has already prepared and released a video for December 22 that explains to bewildered believers exactly why the world will have kept turning.

NASA is keeping at it, trying to save people from selling their belongings and waiting for an apocalypse that won’t come. A new video has been released by the agency, again speaking out against the doomsday rumors. In it, David Morrison, a senior scientist and astrobiologist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, goes through each of the most popular doomsday scenarios, tossing them aside like trash.

    If you use Microsoft Outlook go into the calendar and choose the latest date you can make an appointment. I think it is Tuesday, August 31, 4500 but may differ between versions.

    OH NO the calendar of the great Microsoft civilization is predicting the end of the world in 4500 !!

    Some people are so stupid.

    I would have loved to hear what this guy had to say but the little blackouts in the video was too irritating. And it took away from the legitimatcy of his statements. So now I’m convinced more than ever that this is goodbye cruel world.

    Mayan Calendar ends because they planned to use Universe Custodian Guardians ‘C-G Kalender’.
