Default NASA: World is not ending!

Quote:
NASA Science prepares for the not-end of the world

Are you preparing for a certain fictional apocalypse this month?
The idea that the world is ending on December 21, 2012, comes from a misinterpretation of the Mayan calendar. Because their calendar ends on the 21st, some believe the world must be ending, as well.
This idea has become so widespread in popular culture that NASA Science has made repeated efforts to debunk it. They've now even gone so far as to produce a video for the 22nd of December, explaining (again) why the world didn't end:

The video should ease any fears you might have that all of humanity is headed for its demise this month.........

"Remember, we know better than NASA"

Even with NASA, people will still believe it.

Polar shift -- which is what a lot of doomsday people are saying--- is a FACT. It simply happens over a million years so there is no need in going out and buying a new compass or having your GPS updated! All I know is, if the world ends on 12/21/2012, I will be in Florida playing golf at the World Golf Village staying at the Merriott Resort!

Think of all the time and money you'll save by not Christmas shopping.

C'mon Nasa, how could you possibly argue with a society that made human sacrifices? They HAVE to be smarter than you guys, I mean, sure, they didn't launch a guy to the moon, they did not send any satellites to send images of distant planets, and they probably thought the moon was a menacing god, but hey, they made sweet lookin' pyramids.

Well Wormi, I have to agree the Mayans were very intelligent when it came to astronomy---I'm not so sure how smart the guys doing the decoding of the Mayan Codex! The Mayans discovered things about the universe a thousand years before we did---and all they had were their eyes and a few crude instruments made of sticks and rock! What would they have discovered if they had owned the Hubble?
