4 Reasons the world won’t end tomorrow

Just in case anyone was still wondering…

1. How would the Mayans know what would happen anyway?

They’re basically from the stone age, how would they know something we don’t?

2. Predictions of apocalypse are overrated.

See the wiki page if you want to find out the odds of any prediction of rapture, doomsday etc. coming true.

3. Archaeologists found a new calendar in May this year.

Breathe a sigh of relief. Another Mayan calendar has been found and there is absolutely no mention of December 21, 2012.

Hidden deep in a Guatemala jungle in the 9th-century Maya complex of Xultun, experts have found a previously unknown version of the Mayan calendar. And according to the new find, Earth is going to be around for a very long time.

William Saturno of Boston University, who is leader author in the study told Science Magazine, said: “The ancient Maya predicted the world would continue, that 7,000 years from now, things would be exactly like this. We keep looking for endings. The Maya were looking for a guarantee that nothing would change. It’s an entirely different mindset,” Saturno said.

4. Vladimir Putin said so

As frenzied doomsayers around the world prepare for the apocalypse on December, 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin put his trust in science, saying at a yearly Q&A that the earth won’t end for another 4.5 billion years, when the sun goes out.

“It will all end in 4.5 billion years, the reaction will stop and the Sun will turn into a White Dwarf… I don’t believe the world will end this year,” President Putin said during the press conference.
