Apocalyptic 2012 Claims Will End in 2012

Will the world end on 2012? NASA says no. In fact, the NASA website has a page specifically dedicated to <a href=”http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/2012.html” target=”_blank”>debunking the myths surrounding 2012</a> and the end of the Mayan calendar. The website states unequivocally, “credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.” Anyone who says otherwise is propagating “an Internet hoax,” a “bait-and-shift,” or just bad information. NASA takes a shot at an upcoming film called 2012 stating: “Impressive movie special effects aside, Dec. 21, 2012, won’t be the end of the world as we know.”</p>
<p>The story makes for a great trailer, though:</p>
