2012: The World After the “Apocalypse”

posted in: Editorials, Opinion | 0

Congratulations! You survived the end of the world that never even existed.

The end of the world was supposed to end on December 21, 2012. However, it didn’t and according to a “doomsday” website (abhota.info) there have been over 100 other predictions for the end of the world and many of those predictions date back to about 2800 BC. On that first page of the website, there are over 50 predictions! The website has six pages and one page is dedicated to Beyond 2012, which implies that there are “doomsday” predictions after 2012.

One man that predicted the world would end on December 21, Harold Camping, is the same man who predicted the world would end on May 21, 2011. Personally, I just think he likes the number 21 and for whatever reason, maybe he feels like there is some ominous connection to that number. The point is, the world did not end.

According to ranker.com, Camping and his “disciples” raised about three million dollars to raise awareness for the end of the world on May 21, 2011, which obviously did not happen! He also predicted the world was going to end in 1994. Most people would think that after two failed attempts, a person would learn their lesson NOT to predict the end of the world. Some people really do believe in “third time’s the charm.”

According to abhota.info, the world has already been predicted to end on the following dates: 2017, September 28, 2020, 2022, 2023, 2025, November 13, 2026, 2033, 2035, 2037, and 2040. Those are ten predictions and there will probably be more in the near future.

I am not an expert but I know that we, as humans, need light to survive. According to NASA, the sun will burn out, but not in any of our lifetimes. Once the sun does burn out, that is when “our world” will start to end.

End of the world?  Please. With the scientific evidence to prove it all wrong and numerous failed predictions, we all know that all of these “end of the world” dates are just another date on the calendar- a person’s birthday, death, doctor’s appointment, etc. Those dates are just another sarcastic voice shouting at the top of their lungs, “Your argument is invalid.”
