This blog focuses mainly on Dota but I guess it’s time to write a special article to clarify everything about world’s end.
After the Japan Earthquake, people are thinking that it is a sign of “World’s End”. Oh dear, how many stronger Earthquakes have we experienced on earth? The strongest Earthquake happened last May 22, 1960 on Chile. 2,000,000 people lost their houses, 5,000 people were injured, 2,000 people died, but did the world end? No. Earthquakes are natural calamities that are caused by several factors, one of which is sea floor spreading. We learned this from high school but we still keep on blinding ourselves.
1. A planet, named Nibiru, would collide with Earth causing massive destruction.
Why you shouldn’t believe this? Nasa Scientists already answered this with a very logical statement. They said that if there is any planet that will hit the earth years from now, astronomers could have been monitoring it. They should be informing us about that because that’s the nature of their job. There are tons of astronomers out there are no claims until now.
2. Earth will end because Mayan Calendar ends at December 21, 2012.
Why you shouldn’t fear this? Mayan Calendar is an Ancient Calendar and it will normally have its end just like our calendars at home that end December 31. The Ancient Calendar is not like your phone’s calendar that has unlimited years.
3. Nostradamus predicted End of the World in 2012.
Why you shouldn’t even be bothered? Nostradamus is popular because of his famous prophecies. People thought that he really had predicted events thousands of years before they happen. An example is people believing that before Hitler came, Nostradamus already knew it because of his quatrain containing the term ‘hister’. What people don’t know is that ‘Hister’ is the word used by Nostradamus to describe the Danube river. See more of his prophecies debunked at listverse.
4. The Bible guarantees World’s End because of Dates stated in it. (
Why is this a total lie? First of all, if they are really reading the bible they should have read this verse below before writing books and websites about world end.
5. The Earth will have a Pole Shift and will be a Deathtrap.
Why you can just ignore this? As stated by Nasa Scientist, who based everything on physics: “A reversal in the rotation of the Earth is impossible. It never happend and it never will”. He added that magnetic polarity of the earth does take place every 400,000 years, scientists don’t believe it will take place for another few millennia and there is no evidence that it will do any harm.
Question: How many times the world was predicted to end?
Answer: More than 200 times.
The popular one I’ve encountered was year 2000 where people are saying that when you divide 2000 by 3 you get 666.666666667 and other reasons. The Nibiru was also predicted to clash with Earth on May 2003. Now, they moved it to 2012. To read all the 200+ world’s end list here’s the link – http://www.bible.ca/pre-date-setters.htm
