Ten Vital Reasons the World will not End in 2012
Will the world end in 2012? If so, how and why? So many people have wondered about the connection between the Mayan Calendar and the apocalypse or Armageddon.
December 21st 2012 – a date that is well known globally. Several hundred years ago, the Ancient Mayans predicted the apocalypse on this very date. With their 5,125 year old calendarresetting itself to 0.0.0.0. on this date, many are preparing for the worst. However, how legit is the prophecy of the Mayans? Here are the top ten reasons why the world will not end in 2012:
1. The Earth would run out of resources and energy.
There is no danger of energy depletion for the Earth. The available energy is self generating, continuous and unlimited. Furthermore, there is no chance of theuniverse enclosing, retracting and finally exploding resulting in destruction on December 21st 2012. This scenario is expected in 500 billion years. I am pretty sure our generation would have passed on by then
2. There is a possibility of the earth coming to an end in 2012.
However, truthfully there is also a probability of the end being today, tomorrow or 5000 years from now. There is no propermethod of finding out when the apocalypse will take place. These prophecies are only based on assumptions and predictions with no scientific proof.
3. The Mayan culture disappeared long before their calendar ended.
The Maya may have an been advanced race in astrology and mathematics; however, they were not so proficient in their predictions. They might have foretold the end of life in the year2012, but they could not predict the disappearance and demise of their own culture.
4. The Mayan Calendar resets itself to 0.0.0.0.
Just as the calendar in your house ends after December 31st, so does the Mayan calendar. This does not mean that the Earth comes to an end with your calendar does it? The end of the Mayan calendar just means that the Mayan long-count period will end and another onewould begin; just as your new calendar for the year would.
5. According to scientists, the Earth is going to go through a magnetic polar switch quite soon.
This assumption is predicted to cause utter chaos and destruction, which will possibly lead to the extinction of life. However, scientists have found out that the Earth has faced this issue 380, 000 years ago. Life clearly did manage to passthis problem, so it is likely we are to survive through it again.
6. Nostradamus predicted the end to be as a result of an asteroid smashing into the Earth.
Recently, an asteroid has been spotted and found its way into news. The 900-foot wide asteroid, named Apophis, is believed to make its next close approach soon…in 2029! Even then, the collision probability has been downgraded to 1 in 250, 000chance. There is another possibility of an uncharted asteroid or comet appearing out of the blue at any time; however, Earth-killing impacts have been millions of years apart. It is pretty obvious that our generation would no longer be in the picture in the next million years.
7. One of the most popular issues brought up by scientists is the increase in the number of solar flares. This problemwould lead to satellites melting and eventually lead to a global catastrophe.
This is quite a load of rubbish as the sun goes though a well-documented 11-year sunspot cycle which is driven by its magnetic field. Although the next cycle is assumed to be 30 to 50 percent stronger than the last peak and is predicted to be in the year 2012, it is certainly not the highest peak recorded.
8. Theplanets will align in a way that impacts the Earth
To date there is no possibility of a planetary alignment for the next few decades. In addition, Earth will not cross a galactic plane in the year 2012. If this planetary alignment was to take place, scientists have found that their effects upon the Earth would be negligible. Each December the Earth and the Sun does align with approximately the center...
