Nibiru Cataclysm; Mayan calendar ~ World ending on 21st Dec 2012 – all untrue, vouches NASA too……


Does it have to do with the mind and eternal fear ? There has been lot of talk about World ending on 21st Dec 2012… some talk of ‘Nibiru cataclysm’ ‘Mayan calendar’ and more… The Nibiru cataclysm is a supposed disastrous encounter between the Earth and a large planetary object.  The word ‘cataclysm’ would mean – wash down but in modern day context refers to a mythological deluge and to ‘a hypothetical doomsday event’. There is also the ‘apocalypse’ of things hidden from humanity – a disclosure of revelation to the end of the world in general.

From time immemorial, mankind has been living in constant fear of various  existential risks that they believed to  have the potential to destroy, or drastically restrict, human civilization; and causing extinction of human species. Mankind has feared the deluge, destruction of planet Earth, annihilation of the solar system and the like.  There is fear of known natural disasters like volcanoes, floods, tsunamis and man made events like global warming, nuclear war and bioterrorism.

Now arising out of the continuously circulated apprehension that ‘World is to end on 21st Dec’ – so many new words are being heard……. Baktun, a 20 katun cycle of the ancient Maya calendar.  It reportedly contains 144,000 days, equal to 394.26 tropical years. The Classic period of Maya civilization occurred during the 8th and 9th baktuns of the current calendrical cycle. The current (13th) baktun supposedly would end on Dec 21, 2012 which according to some is the end of the World !!!!

Maya is a Mesoamerican civilization, noted for the only known fully developed written language of the pre-Columbian Americas, as well as for its art, architecture, and mathematical and astronomical systems. The  influence of Maya civilization of Central America  is traced to  Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and western El Salvador to as far away as central Mexico, more than 1,000 km (620 mi) from the Maya area. The Maya peoples never disappeared; their descendants form sizable populations throughout the Maya area and maintain a distinctive set of traditions and beliefs that are the result of the merger of pre-Columbian and post-Conquest ideas and cultures.

So from Mayan belief arises ‘the 2012 phenomenon’ of the cataclysmic event of World ending on 21st Dec 2012.  Scholars from various disciplines have dismissed the idea of such cataclysmic events occurring in 2012. Professional Mayanist scholars state that predictions of impending doom are not found in any of the extant classic Maya accounts, and that the idea that the Long Count calendar "ends" in 2012 misrepresents Maya history and culture.

Those who fear that it might come true, foretell the cataclysms that could bring on Doomsday like : super volcano causing the end; dogs transmitting deadly plague of cancers carried by foxes; a dark comet slamming into the earth as destructive as the asteroid that killed off the dinosaurs; huge  quantities of dust would bring on an 'eternal winter' in which the sun would be obscured and crops around the world would fail, leading to mass famine. Among the favourites spelling doom  is that a rogue planet, Nibiru, which has long been inhabiting the far reaches of the solar system, beyond even Pluto, is now on a collision course with Earth.

In France the authorities have had to bar New Age followers from travelling to Bugarach, a tiny village home to fewer than 200 people, and the 'mystical mountain' where it is located. Doomsday fanatics have identified Bugarach as a place of safety on the grounds that aliens live hidden within the mountain and are waiting for the end of the world when they will rescue humans in the area.


Away, the space agency NASA reportedly has been flooded with calls and emails from people asking about the purported end of the world.   Dwayne Brown, an agency spokesman, said NASA typically receives about 90 calls or emails per week containing questions from people. In recent weeks, he said, that number has skyrocketed — from 200 to 300 people are contacting NASA per day to ask about the end of the world.  The questions range from myth (Will a rogue planet crash into Earth? Is the sun going to explode? Will there be three days of darkness?) to the macabre (Brown said some people have "embraced it so much" they want to hurt themselves).

So,  NASA has  decided to do "everything in our power" to set the facts straight. That effort includes interviews with scientists posted online and a web page Brown said has drawn more than 4.6 million views.  NASA has a video titled, "Why the World Didn't End”. NASA has handled high-profile events before, Brown said, including the Venus transit this year, but nothing the agency has had to "debunk" has been this big.

Here are some excerpts from the web of NASA

Question (Q): Are there any threats to the Earth in 2012? Many Internet websites say the world will end in December 2012.
Answer (A):The world will not end in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.


Q: Does the Mayan calendar end in December 2012?
A: Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then -- just as your calendar begins again on January 1 -- another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.


Q: Is NASA predicting a "total blackout" of Earth on Dec. 23 to Dec. 25?
A: Absolutely not. Neither NASA nor any other scientific organization is predicting such a blackout. The false reports on this issue claim that some sort of "alignment of the Universe" will cause a blackout. There is no such alignment.

Q: Could planets align in a way that impacts Earth?
A: There are no planetary alignments in the next few decades and even if these alignments were to occur, their effects on the Earth would be negligible.

Q: Is there a planet or brown dwarf called Nibiru or Planet X or Eris that is approaching the Earth and threatening our planet with widespread destruction?
A: Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth in 2012, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist. Eris is real, but it is a dwarf planet similar to Pluto that will remain in the outer solar system; the closest it can come to Earth is about 4 billion miles.


Q: Is the Earth in danger of being hit by a meteor in 2012?
A: The Earth has always been subject to impacts by comets and asteroids, although big hits are very rare. The last big impact was 65 million years ago, and that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.

So according to NASA there is no special risk associated with  21st Dec 2012. Sun will continue to rise in the morning and things will be as normal as they have been.

  1. Mayan Calendars - December 21, 2012 is more associated with the two calendars the Mayans have. The Haab is a period of 365 days. It is divided into 18 periods of 20 days each and 5 days that are not part of any period. The Tzolkin (sp. is wrong) is 13 equal periods. The long count is a way of synchronizing the two calendars for important dates. What happened on December 21. 2012 is that both of these calendars finished out the last day of their periods and both of them were on day one the next day. Both the Haab and Tzolkin can go backwards and forwards forever. I even knew a computer scientist who believed the clap-trap that the Mayan calendar (not calendars) came to an end. Here is some stuff I have on it:
