Speak Out: Is the World Ending on 12-21-12?
Some say doomsday is nearly upon us; others say we’ll be just fine. What are your thoughts on the predictions of the world ending Friday, Dec. 21?
If you believe the predictions out there, our days our numbered.
The date some have feared the approach of, Dec. 21, 2012, is now a week away. Supposedly, it’s the day that will see the occurrence of a cataclysmic event, or perhaps even the end of the world, as predicted by the Mayan calendar.
“Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012,” NASA officials write, going on to denounce theories such as a supposed planet heading toward Earth, a planetary alignment of epic proportions, a reversal of our planet’s rotation and more.
But on the flip side, the Weekly World News claims that the end of the world has been confirmed. Their report claims a recent discovery of hieroglyphics clearly state an end date for the world—next Friday.
