December 21, 2012 marks the End of the Mayan Calendar
(Best Syndication News) - For years, the doomsday soothsayers have been forewarning of a doomsday scenario for December 21, 2012. NASA has received so many inquiries about this doomsday event that they have presented several discussions disputing the end of the world. NASA is so certain the end is not coming that they have created several videos debunking the doomsday predictions.
NASA says people are contacting them with various scenarios. One reason the agency has been contacted involves the idea that ancient Sumarians talked about a planet called Nibiru (or Planet X) that will enter into Earth's orbit. This Planet X could supposedly change the way the Earth spins; some people think that Noah's flood was caused by Nibiru. The Nibiru prediction failed the first time in May 2003, and then the prediction was moved to December 2012. NASA said that no such planet has been spotted heading our way.
Another concern is that Earth’s magnetic poles would shift causing all the oceans to be displaced and land forms to change. NASA explains that a reversal of the magnetic poles is not possible. The reason is that the continents move slowly and that is why Antarctica was at the equator millions of years ago. There are magnetic polarities that can change irregularly, but NASA does not believe that this reversal will cause any harm to the planet. Additionally, NASA does not think that a magnetic reversal will happen in our lifetime; maybe this would happen within a few millennia, they suggest.
NASA assures us that no large asteroid is on path to crash into our planet. In addition, as far as the solar flares go, the current solar storm flares are no grander than they were in previous cycles that occur every 11 years.
So far, no impending doom has been reported by people around the world as they begin their day - December 21, 2012.
Some people worry that the Mayan calendar is coming to the end. However, it does not mean that it is the end of the world. The calendar is coming to an end of a cycle, which is similar to our calendar ending and the starting of a new year.
