NASA: December 21 Won't Be the End of the World

Doomsday talk is starting back, but NASA says the Mayans were off.

Does the talk of Dec. 21 give you chills? Do you believe that the Mayan calendar predicts our demise today? 

NASA scientists aren't worried. 

According to the NASA website, the only thing that will happen on December 21, 2012, is the winter solstice. 

The website also compared the lack of dates on the Mayan calendar to the lack of dates on current calendars.

"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."

Of course, those screaming doomsday are getting far more attention. 

The official Dec. 21, 2012 website even claims to have celebrity supporters such as Woody Harrelson, Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher and Shirley MacLaine. 

The Dec. 21, 2012 website also alleges a galactic problem that will cause the world to end — something the scientists at NASA refute. 

But what if they're wrong? Are you doing anything to prepare for "The End"?

Haha, poor NASA. They're like the redheaded stepchild of the government now that they've been outdone by the voluntary sector.
