For those of you convinced the world will end on 12/21/12 because the Mayans found a nice, round number for their calendars, it turns out the date may be way off.
The good news is that the Mayan “Long Count” calendar may not end on Dec. 21, 2012 (and, by extension, the world may not end along with it). The bad news for prophecy believers? If the calendar doesn’t end in December 2012, no one knows when it actually will – or if it has already.
Ask me, it was pretty silly to begin with.
I find it especially funny when self-proclaimed Christians buy into it. For one, if they believe the Bible scholars when they say the Earth is only 6,000 years old and man ran with the dinosaurs, then we haven’t even come close to the 13,000 years the Mayans predicted.
Now, let’s say they’re willing to dismiss that age bit as fable. Okay, cool. They’re still dealing with Mayan — or, in their mind, false, mythological, or even pagan — religious folklore. I guess that Commandment about “no other gods” is flexible, too. Maybe we can convince them Jesus was an alien spirit while we’re at it.
The short version? You think you only have two years left, fine, sell everything you own and catch that ride on a comet.
Just shut the hell up about it because I’m not sure I can take two more years of your whining.
