The Mayan calendar expires on December 21, leading some to believe that tomorrow is the end of the world.
Despite the fact that everyone from NASA scientists to the Vatican have debunked this theory, and even academics who study ancient Mayan history say it simply restarts – that hasn’t stopped some people from preparing for doomsday.
There are no clues as to how it all could end — anything from a massive volcanic eruption, to a solar storm, but one thing’s for sure – the general public isn’t really buying it.
“I’m as worried about the end of the world as I was the Y2K bug – either way I’m going to make sure I have a lot of batteries because you can never be too safe but overall I’m not really scared no,” one man commented.
“Not at all – it’s been said back in the 80s and then in 2000, I just – I don’t believe it,” another woman noted.
Even if you don’t believe it, the whole idea still brings up an interesting question. What would you do if it were your last day on earth?
