More Time Before Doom Day

In 2012 the world is going to end. That’s what I’ve been hearing from many people these days. December 21 of 2012 is the last day on the Mayan Calendar according to analysts. But now it’s a possibility they are wrong.

The Mayan “long count” calendar may not even end on December 21 of 2010. When the Mayan calendar was reconverted to the Gregorian calendar, the conversions may have been off by 50 or even 100 years. This was calculated by using a (The) GMT constant; named after a Mayan researcher. The good news is that we will all live! Now of course both conversions could be wrong, but I like to believe the most recent discovery.

After reading this article, I was really relieved. I’m a sucker for scary stories and to me the “ending of the world” was one of my biggest nightmares. There’s a lot I want to do and accomplish in my life. Give me 2 more years until 2012, and there’s no way I can accomplish half the things on my list. I’m going to need WAY more time.

Here’s the article I found online.

What are your opinions? Are you relieved,\or did you not care in the first place?

Thanks for reading!

  1. If the world does end in 2012 it better not end December 21, that would suck, January is better because then we won't have to take the ACT's or the SAT. It is a good thing the world will end in 2112, which is a cooler year.
    The entire basis of 2012 is completely absurd, there is no good reasoning to back it up, although it makes for some good jokes.
