A converging period of doomsday prognostication is still troubling the Internet websites by giving false reports that the world will come to an end on December 21, 2012….or even 12-12-12.
In a story filed by ABC News Reporter Jonathan Bloom, the end of the world claims is causing people to contemplate suicide.http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=news/bizarre&id=8900498
NASA Scientist David Morrison in Mountain View volunteered ten years ago to answer questions the public would have by email or correspondence. Starting about 4-years ago, there have been increasing interest to an alledged cataclysmic end of the Earth.
Concern over 2012 being the end was lanched by the movie “2012” regarding a coming apocalypse. Also credit towards consternation goes to the Mayan culture which has their calendar concluding or tansitioning to a new phase on December 21st of this year. Other cultures have a similar break in their respective calendars, however the Mayan culture has received the most attention.
Morrison of NASA declared that the hoax is contributing to those killing themselves to avoid the supposed horror.
“I think that is the worst part of this hoax. And it is a hoax,” commented Morrision.
Still there are those irresponsible who are not only pushing a December 21 apocalypse, but also claiming an imaginary Planet X, called Nibiru, is going to crash into Earth or cause planetary upheaval. This prediction has alreay missed a couple of prophesied appointments of disaster.
Answering the numerous inquries regarding the end of the world is taking a toll on Morrison. He declared that when he wakes up on December 22nd, Morrison said he will hand the job to somebody else.
“I’ve become sort of obsessed with doomsday 2012, and I’ll be glad to drop it, ” quipped Morrison.
In doing research concerning the Mayans, Morrison declared the same ancient Mayans prophesized some event to happen 300-500 years from 2012, so even the Mayans didn’t believe the world was coming to an end.
Since the Mayans don’t believe the end of the age will happen 2012, it is difficult to relieve the stress when You Tube videos have tens of millions of views of those perpetuating the hoax of life ending on December 21st.
In the face of scientific evidence or religious beliefs that debunk the end happening on December 21st, people will believe what they want to believe.
