2012: Beginning of the End? Not According to NASA

For all of you 2012 conspiracy theorists.  Finally, we can lay these stupid claims to rest:

Remember the Y2K scare? It came and went without much of a whimper because of adequate planning and analysis of the situation. Impressive movie special effects aside, Dec. 21, 2012, won’t be the end of the world as we know. It will, however, be another winter solstice.

Much like Y2K, 2012 has been analyzed and the science of the end of the Earth thoroughly studied. Contrary to some of the common beliefs out there, the science behind the end of the world quickly unravels when pinned down to the 2012 timeline. Below, NASA Scientists answer several questions that we’re frequently asked regarding 2012.

NASA – 2012: Beginning of the End or Why the World Won’t End?.

Check it out and read on.  Some of these questions are just too ridiculous.


Then Again…

…could the end of the world be starting already?  In Arkansas of all places?  First thousands of dead fish…

State officials are investigating why thousands of fish washed up dead on the shores of the Arkansas River last week.

Officials are expected to release their estimate of the total number of dead fish Monday, local NBC station KARK 4 News reported. It is likely to be in the hundreds of thousands.

The fish were found Thursday by a tugboat operator along a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River near the city of Ozark.

And now thousands of birds falling from the sky?

BEEBE, Ark. — The carcasses of some of the nearly 2,000 red-winged blackbirds that inexplicably fell on an Arkansas town on New Year’s Eve night will be sent for testing to determine the cause of death.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said the state Livestock and Poultry Commission Lab and the National Wildlife Health Center Lab in Madison, Wis., will examine the dead birds starting Monday.

Note to self: Avoid Arkansas.

End of Days in May? According to Some…Yes.

If the end of the world happens ten days after my birthday, I’m going to have some serious egg on my face.  Sans that, here is the low down:

RALEIGH, N.C. — If there had been time, Marie Exley would have liked to start a family. Instead, the 32-year-old Army veteran has less than six months left, which she’ll spend spreading a stark warning: Judgment Day is almost here.

Exley is part of a movement of Christians loosely organized by radio broadcasts and websites, independent of churches and convinced by their reading of the Bible that the end of the world will begin on May 21, 2011.

Just as long as no one gets any ‘end of days’ soot on my shoes…
