You should probably quit spending your Saturday nights studying for that illustrious AP. It would behoove you to give up on everything you have ever wanted. In fact, you might as well speed up the inevitable process of your demise and kill yourself now.

If you haven’t heard, the world is coming to an end. The day is December 21, 2012. That is the day in which the Earth will spontaneously combust, blowing up into tiny shreds, right before your eyes. Nah, just kidding. You wouldn’t actually have eyes to see this atrocity due to the fact that you will be blown up into shreds as well.  Consequently, your soul will be no longer and life as we know it will cease to exist.

Does anyone actually believe that?!?

There is legitimate scientific proof showing that December 21, 2012 will be just like any other day. Initially on May 27, 2003, a planet discovered by the Sumerians, called Nibiru, was supposed to align in its orbital pattern with that of Earth’s, resulting in the end of the world. This occurrence, however, didn’t happen. All that hype was for nothing and on May 28, 2003, thousands of gullible, ignorant human beings were left dumbstruck and simply looking foolish. With nothing left to say, people on Earth commenced reading the Mayan calendar and came across the next day in which a catastrophe was set to occur. They had to scroll through nine and a half years on the calendar to come across the day which was seemingly arbitrarily selected as End of the World: Take Two.

Now, what new, legitimate proof is out there that truly validates December 21, 2012 as being as official a date for the end of the world as Denebola is our school newspaper? None. The answer is none. According to NASA, every December, the Earth and sun align with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy; however, as previously stated, this event occurs each and every December, and the December in 2012 will be no abnormality or exception to the norm.

The Mayans claim that the planet Nibiru or Planet X is approaching our planet at a rapid pace. This, however, can simply not be true, seeing as if there were such a planet in close proximity to us, not only would it be visible to the naked eye, but it would be visible to astronomers who track our solar system and galaxy for anything out of the ordinary.

If this planet were really headed for Earth, it would be obvious in our records and there wouldn’t even be a debate over whether or not it exists.

To further validate the fact that the world isn’t ending, Mayan elder Apolinario Chile Pixtun revealed the truth about the mythical doomsday.

“I came back from England last year and, man, they had me fed up with this stuff, Pixtun said. He claimed that the whole idea wasn’t even that of the Mayans, but the Western World.

Mayan archaeologist, Jose Huchim, backs up Pixtun’s claim that the Mayans weren’t even the civilization to assert the idea that the world would end in 2012.
“If I went to some Mayan-speaking communities and asked people what is going to happen in 2012, they wouldn’t have any idea, Huchim said. “If I told them that the world is going to end, they  wouldn’t believe me. We have real concerns these days, like rain.

The fact that even an archaeologist studying Mayans believes that the Mayans themselves knew nothing about the claim that the world was going to end validates Pixtun’s assertion that it isn’t the Mayans’ claim. Furthermore, if the Mayan calendar really does state that the world may end in 2012, why would the Mayans not have knowledge about it or believe it?

Also, as stated by Huchim, rain is more of a catastrophe for us humans to have to deal with than the notion that the world could end in 2012 is. Rain. When rain is described as a “real concern, you know have entered period of legitimate distress. A true crisis.

The only chance that the world would end in 2012 is if it were solely minuscule raindrops that managed to bring about the demise of our beautiful planet Earth.
