Is “dooms day” real or fake? Are we all crazy for considering the possibility of the world ending?
Dec. 21, 2012 may or may not be doomsday but according to the official dooms day website (yes that does exist), 25 million people think Christmas won’t happen this year.
That’s a scary statistic, considering a good percentage of believers are probably hoarding guns and other weapons to protect themselves from the impending “doom”.
Is there unnecessary fear building up in people’s homes? The truth is yes.
People are quitting their jobs, storing food with thoughts of food shortages, purchasing weapons, and causing major anxiety for no reason at all.
The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003. When nothing happened, the doomsday date was moved forward to Dec. 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012.
Many conspiracy theories have been formed such as signs of the“Illuminati” taking over the world, global warming, a storm heading our way, and an apocalypse.
Consider how many times theories such as these have been formed in the past? You can’t believe everything you hear.
In my opinion, this is all craziness. If anything, people are going to be causing more danger by purchasing guns, imposing fear on others, living life to “the fullest” by doing things they would never do before, and possibly even suicide.
If people who think the world will be ending on Dec. 21, 2012 and kill people, rob stores, or cause all out chaos, there will be a disaster of epic proportions.
What will really happen on Dec. 21? I guess we’ll have to wait and see, but please, don’t do anything crazy and just be relaxed.
