With all the speculation and hype of the world ending in 2013, is it really true? I wonder how it will happen, an asteroid, alignment of the planets, or a massive super volcano explosion. So many choices, the possibilities seem endless. Whatever it is as long as I don’t suffer I’ll be happy.
But wait, here is something no one has asked, that I know of, or seen an answer to about the end of the world. Will the world be destroyed all at once or in sections? If it is supposed to happen all at once, which time zone will it happen in? Pacific Standard time zone, Eastern, Central, or one of the many other time zones we have out there. Also, did the Myan calendar calculate for leap year? If they didn’t is the timing off or can it still be considered accurate?
What makes the end of an ancient calendar so special and hold so much control over what people believe will happen? We don’t think twice when our regular calendar ends; it just cycles over and over again with a different year. Throughout time each civilization has had their own form of a calendar, even now we use two forms of a yearly calendar; a traditional January through December and then our fiscal calendar of July through June.
This entire hype reminds me of the Y2K scare back in 1999, for those of you old enough to remember, when everyone thought the computer systems were going to collapse when the new millennium happened. In my opinion the same is true for this prophecy; there are too many unanswered questions and variables on how the earth will end. I say live life for the moment and enjoy everyday as best one can.
Happy Holidays to everyone and I will see you next year!
