December 21, 2012: It’s The End Of The World (Again)

According to some easily-fooled people, the Mayan calendar predicts that today – December 21, 2012, is the end of the world.

Well, the day has almost ended in the other “end of the world,” and still I’m standing. (Actually – sitting  ;- )

So, it may not be too premature to say that we’ll be OK. In both ends of the world. Again.

Despite all the doomsayers and the hysterical panic among some easily-fooled people, this end of the world, like all the countless other ones before it, turns out to be a hoax. Again…

In fact, NASA was so sure that the world won’t come to an end on Dec. 21, 2012, that 10 days ago they released a video for the day after “the end of the world.”

Will the human race finally embrace science and move beyond the childish mumbo-jumbo nonsense and ridiculous superstitions of the past?!…
