2012: no the world will not end

you may have heard some people claim that the world will end in 2012. just take a moment to contemplate that: they claim the world will end on precisely december 21st, two thousand twelve.

these claims are ridiculous, not to mention vague.

and i also think it's sad, because these people are causing unnecessary stress in lives of (admittedly gullible) people. i guess someone somewhere is making money off these regularly forecast apocalyptic fairy tales or else they wouldnt come about so unceasingly.

just to be sure, i DO NOT think any of the reasons being spouted for why the world will end in 2012 are at all valid, or reasonable, or bona fide in any way. here's a nicely done video summarizing the crazy business...
