2012 : Myth Or Reality?

2012. Do hazaar barah!!!!!!. There is lot of curiosity , speculation regarding 2012. Many books have been written on this , a movie has been made of this. What is this 2012 and why some people say that world will end on 2012?.

Well those who say world will end on 2012 are influenced by calendar of mayas. Now this is not maya memshaab or hari ki maya . Maya was a civilization which existed long back.The Maya is a Mesoamerican civilization, noted for the only known fully developed written language of the pre-Columbian Americas, as well as its art, architecture, and mathematical and astronomical systems.

Now like every civilization they too had their ideas about creation. Some myth and some according to scientific truths. Now they have a calendar which ends on 2012. Its like ending of yug. Not end of world!!!!!!!

But curiosity sells and so does end of world concept. Doesn't it?

Now this is what NASA has to say about 2012 : end of world concept.

Nibiru, a purported large object headed toward Earth, simply put - does not exist. There is no credible evidence - telescopic or otherwise - for this object's existence. There is also no evidence of any kind for its gravitational affects upon bodies in our solar system.

The Mayan calendar does not end in December 2012. Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period, but then – just as your calendar begins again on January 1 - another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.

There are no credible predictions for worrisome astronomical events in 2012. The activity of the sun is cyclical with a period of roughly 11 years and the time of the next solar maximum is predicted to occur in the period 2010 – 2012. However, the Earth routinely experiences these periods of increased solar activity – for eons - without worrisome effects. The Earth’s magnetic field, which deflects charged particles from the sun, does reverse polarity on time scales of about 400,000 years but there is no evidence that a reversal, which takes thousands of years to occur, will begin in 2012. Even if this several thousand year-long magnetic field reversal were to begin, that would not affect the Earth’s rotation nor would it affect the direction of the Earth’s rotation axis… only Superman can do that.

The only important gravitational tugs experienced by the Earth are due to the moon and sun. There are no planetary alignments in the next few decades, Earth will not cross the galactic plane in 2012, and even if these alignments were to occur, their effects on the Earth would be negligible. Each December the Earth and Sun align with the approximate center of the Milky Way Galaxy but that is an annual event of no consequence.

The predictions of doomsday or dramatic changes on December 21, 2012 are all false. Incorrect doomsday predictions have taken place several times in each of the past several centuries. Readers should bear in mind what Carl Sagan noted several years ago; "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

Now what if NASA is false ?. What if sudden , out of blue thing happens and world does end. Well can we say by 100% assurance that we would see tommorrow?. Anything can happen , any time.Why 2012 , world can end in 2009 itself by some certain changes in wheather or earthquake or something. Life is based on hopes and it comes with no gurantee , then why to be so worried about 2012?. Its ok , as far as whatever scientific knowledge that we have 2012 is myth.
