Astronomer Debunks Fears Over Mythical 2012 End

October 21, 2009

U.S. (ChattahBox) – There have been rumors for years about the end of the world occurring in December 2012. From the Mayan Calender, to a planetary alignment, one man has stepped up and told people to shut up and calm down.

NASA scientist, Dr. David Morrison, is adamant about the fact that there is no proof of an impending apocalypse. In fact, he chose to address several concerns one by one, in order to debunk some of the myths.

On his blog, Dr. Morrison addresses twenty questions that are (depressingly) asked of him on a regular basis.

These answers include an explanation of the origin of the Nibiru myth (from an obscure sci-fi story with no scientific basis), why the planetary alignment won’t cause the world to spontaneously fly off it’s access, and why it is unwise to put your faith in the predictions of a man like Nostradamus, who has not technically had any predictions that have been proven to be correct.

I won’t bother posting them here, but visit the source link. It is a fantastically interesting read, and it might clarify a few points.

    I seriously don’t believe that the world will end in 2012. Something terrible might happen just not the end of the world! Justlive your life to the fullest. Any way it goes, either you live or you die.
