Mayan Apocalypse: Panic as Fears Grow the World Will End December 21 When Mayan Calendar Stops

Are you getting nervous the closer we inch towards December 21, 2012? That’s when the Mayan calendar reportedly ends and fears that the end of the world is near is spreading across the world. Doomsdayers are predicting a cataclysmic end of the Earth. Well, no use shopping until you drop for Christmas, right? Sorry, I scarcely believe this will be the end of the world. But that’s just my two cents.

Ahead of December 21, which marks the conclusion of the 5,125-year “Long Count” Mayan calendar, panic buying of candles and essentials has been reported in China and Russia, along with an explosion in sales of survival shelters in America. In France believers were preparing to converge on a mountain where they believe aliens will rescue them.

The precise manner of Armageddon remains vague, ranging from a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, a disastrous crash with a comet, or the annihilation of civilisation by a giant solar storm.

In America Ron Hubbard, a manufacturer of hi-tech underground survival shelters, has seen his business explode.

“We’ve gone from one a month to one a day,” he said. “I don’t have an opinion on the Mayan calendar but, when astrophysicists come to me, buy my shelters and tell me to be prepared for solar flares, radiation, EMPs (electromagnetic pulses) … I’m going underground on the 19th and coming out on the 23rd. It’s just in case anybody’s right.”

Mayans themselves reject any notion that the world will end. Pedro Celestino Yac Noj, a Mayan sage, burned seeds and fruits to mark the end of the old calender at a ceremony in Cuba. He said: “The 21st is for giving thanks and gratitude and the 22nd welcomes the new cycle, a new dawn.” Source

  1. Funny how Christians, well… at least many Christians…. who only believe in their own religion and culture and try to keep foreign influences to a minimum believe this from an ancient pagan culture.

  2. I never cease to be amazed at the gullibility of humans.

  3. Will the world end based eastern or central time zones?

  4. What panic? Who specifically is panicking? Where is the evidence there is real panic … And not just goofy made-for-tv “panic” or fake media headline panic intended to get folks to read a blog post …

    This is a big joke. I plan to go Apocalypse Bar Hopping like I did for the last two.

  5. My wedding anniversary (27th) is on 21 Dec, 2012!!!

  6. Who’s panicking Barky? ME!!! AHHHH!!! /runsaroundscreaming
