Well I hope not! I’m still young and I don’t want to die at the age of 27. Yes folks I’ll be 27 next year! If you don’t know about it, there’s an event on facebook called ” End of the World Party” and I’m attending.
Professor Jocelyn Bell Burnell was part of a team that discovered pulsars in 1967. Burnell was asked about the Mayan Calendar and why it ends in 2012. Doom and gloom people!
We all like a bit of drama so why not make crap up, right?
There is a book out on the Ancient Sumerians having had contact with extra terrestrial beings on a planet called Nibiru. Apparently this planet is going to collide with Earth in 2012. So the world is going to end because some modern day scientists or psycho’s believe that the ancient were able to predict this. Maybe. I guess we’ll never know – unless we have some proper genetic materials to work with.
So is Nibiru out there. Can we see it?
“That would be very difficult for ancient people to detect against the star background, because it would appear that the planet is moving backward and forward. There’s some suspicion of trouble there” Burnell said.
She said that if the planet was on a collision course with Earth in 2012, it would already be very close and easily visible to astronomers. “If it’s going to collide with the earth, it should be close – near the orbit of Jupiter or Saturn – so we’d see it by now. There is a possibility it could be a star, but then it would be so bright, we’d see it – even during the day,” she said.
I’m with the Doctor on this one. I mean yes the ancient ones were clever and awesome and had all these neat tricks and pretty creepy ways of doing this or building things but let’s face it; If the world is ending next year, surely our governments would be in a flat spin by now? Building space ships in a hurry? We read about people who think that the ancients were given instructions or were given help to build all their (amazing) structures. *dum dum dum –
think the movie 2012 music make up your own theme song for end of the world music*

So why does the Mayan calender end in 2012? Burnell reckons they ran out of space and if they were still around they probably would have started on their next cycle by now. Burnell for president!
