Sorry to break it to you, folks, but the Mayan Calendar has apparently issued a new prediction that the world will in fact be ending next week.
Just to add the cherry on top of the god awful cake 2020 has already been.
Keep scrolling for more on the mysterious Mayan Calendar, and to read their eerie prediction for yourself…
But, out of them all, perhaps the most infamous was their “end of the world” prophecy 8 whole years ago.
Doomsday theorists went crazy when the calendar – which is a system of calendars used in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica and in other modern communities in the Guatemalan highlands, Chiapas, and Mexico – announced that the world would be ending on December 21st, 2012.
But hey, even Christmas can’t stop the end of the world.
And people all over the world braced themselves for their grizzly end.
But many speculated natural disasters such as a giant tidal wave, an Earth-wide earthquake, or a tremendous volcanic eruption.
It’s what wiped out the dinosaurs, right?
And many people were genuinely preparing for the end, with some throwing doomsday parties and others stockpiling on supplies and building underground bunkers.
And, guess what? The world didn’t end after all!
But the lack of asteroids, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes confused a lot of people, and they were left wanting answers.
When is the end of the world?
It has been revealed that the calendar actually predicted that the world will be ending on Sunday, June 21st, 2020, not 2012.
It’s been nice knowing you all.
How on Earth could the ancient calendar get something so huge so drastically wrong?
And why are we only hearing about this now?!
Scientist and Fullbright scholar, Paolo Tagaloguin, was the one to break the grim news to us all over the weekend.
“Following the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012 … The number of days lost in a year due to the shift into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days… For 268 years using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days. 2,948 days/365 days (per year) = 8 years.”
A number of days on the Mayan Calendar were lost as a result of the Georgian Calendar, meaning that the Mayan version is 8 whole years behind… That means the 2012 prediction should actually happen this year.
Basically, in Mayan terms, we are only in 2012.
Though, going by how this year has been so far, many aren’t too surprised with the sudden prediction.
So many would be happy to see an end to it.
As these things always do, the recalculated prediction has been met with a lot of scrutiny and cynics.
So, with the news, many people simply rolled their eyes and continued with their day.
Please remember that this researcher has been discredited by all official scientific figures, such as NASA.
And there are many gaps in their story… Why has it taken until now, the week before the supposed “end”, for them to reveal the new date?
But, of course, there will always be the people who believe that the world is genuinely going to end.
