December 21st, 2012: Doomsday Ain’t Happening

Today Friday November 13th, 2009 theatergoers the world over will be teleported via cinematic magic forward in time to the near future date of Friday December 21st, 2012 and a possible End Day that will signify the end of civilization as we know it. In view of the gravity of the situation, and believing that our blog site has a responsibility to serve in the public interest at all times, we are going to help set the record straight.

Let us assure you our dear readers of Discovery Enterprise that on Friday December 21st, 2012, in all probability “the Earth’s magnetic poles will not flip, California will not break apart and slide into the sea, and a secret monster planet will not smash into Earth out of the invisible nowhere”. On Saturday December 22nd, 2012 we will be back to the old everyday concerns of work, school and family and making the last minute entries on our holiday gift list and debating whether or not we are going to get Uncle Bob another Paisley Tie again this Christmas.
“The world will not come to an end on December 21, 2012,” says prominent astronomer and astro-historian E. C. Krupp, director of Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and a Sky & Telescope contributing editor. “The 2012 doomsday idea starts with a misinterpretation of the Maya calendar.”
Dr. Krupp debunks the 2012 doomsday idea in the cover story of the November 2009 issue of Sky & Telescope magazine, which is now on sale at newsstands. The article explains what you need to know for your 2012 defense kit. Click here to download a copy of Dr. Krupp’s informative article in Sky & Telescope.
So we can all sleep a lot more easily tonight. In the mean time if you are staying in tonight and not attending the premier of the theatrical release of this latest Hollywood disaster flick we at Discovery Enterprise will provide you with the next best thing – two episodes of the highly controversial and questionably accurate documentary series Decoding the Past. Namely: “Doomsday 2012 – The End of Days” and “Mayan Doomsday Prophecy”. So make some buttery mouth watering Popcorn and enjoy today’s video offering. Make sure you book your tickets to see John Cusack in 2012 tomorrow and sleep easy tonight with the knowledge that its just plain old make-believe.

Decoding the Past – Doomsday 2012 – The End Of Days

Decoding The Past – Mayan Doomsday Prophecy

‘2012’ Trailer HD

The end of the world is coming in 2012 or so goes the plot of this apocalyptic drama from the director of Independence Day. The movie, appropriately titled 2012, is about a group of people (led by John Cusack) trying to counteract and survive the disastrous events predicted by the Ancient Mayan calendar. Why do I get the feeling the Director Roland Emmerich has a thing for the end of the world judging from his past movies like Independence Day, Day After Tommorow, and Godzilla?? Take a look at this teaser trailer and see the destruction for yourself. Not a very long trailer but you get the idea. I assume there will be much more of the same for the whole 2 hours of this movie. Let us know what you think, does 2012 look like it could be another Independence Day?

    I agree that the world will not end 2012, but that has nothing to do with astronomy.There is Bible prophecy that indicates that there will be disasters that will come upon the human race, and these are likely to come in our lifetimes. But it has nothing to do with physical causes that scientists can measure and predict.These disasters will come as punishment from God for the sins of man. As I point out in my blog, that is something most TV shows, books, and probably the 2012 movie leave out. They are designed by God to help bring mankind to repentance for our good.Based on Bible prophecy and current events, it looks like these things may happen in about 10 or 20 years, according to my estimate. But while there may or may not be any disasters in 2012, there are a lot of events that have to happen before the end of this age, and I do not see how they can happen in just the next three years.

    Penman = you do realise that the bible is as realistic and truthful a book as Harry Potter, don`t you?

    Simon, just out of curiosity, do you believe God exists at all? Or do you think maybe He exists, but the Bible is wrong?

    The great Billy Graham said in 1960 that Christ would undoubtedly return within 10 years. The folly of attempting to predict Christ's return was spoken by Christ Himself. "No man knows the hour." Even the Apostle Paul had no clue. He thought and wrote that Jesus was about to return any day.OBTW – the Bible can only be read and understood by the redeemed by a supernatural illumination. To all others it is nonsense and undecipherable gibberish.

    Dennis, you are absolutely right about setting dates. That is why I said that my expression that it "looks like" these things "may happen" is only my estimate. I do not set dates.But it is not wrong to read the signs of the times and know when things are near (Matthew 24:32-33, Matthew 16:2-3, Mark 13:35-37).It is true that to understand the mysteries of God we need God's help to understand the Bible. But I think God gives that help based on attitude. There are some things in the Bible anyone can understand. And as a person shows to God that he is willing to believe and obey what God says, God helps him understand more.
