December 21, 2012 is the day that, thanks to the media and two theories, made millions of hearts beat faster in fear of the unknown end of the world. "Why didn't the apocalypse take place?" and "what were the prerequisites for its implementation?" - these two questions are literally hanging in the air and require logical explanations.
December 21, 2012: prerequisites for the onset of the apocalypse
“The light will go out and the world will plunge into darkness” - these words still cause some discomfort. People not only believed, but also began to panic, buying candles, food, and some even bought places in the "bunkers". Thanks to two theories, the media have successfully created hype around the mysterious date with the four "2".
The first theory was based on the predictions of the ancient Mayan tribe, or rather their traditional calendar, which dates back to several thousand years BC. and ended on December 21, 2012.
The second theory is related to astronomy. Many argued that on the day of the solstice there will be a parade of planets, the Earth will collide with a space object, a comet or an asteroid. It has also been suggested that the death of all mankind from the sun is possible.
Refutation of all premises for the apocalypse
From a scientific point of view, the above theories of the apocalypse under the influence of the media simply misled humanity, since none of them is reliable and is subject to completely logical refutation.
Theory number 1 (calendar of the Mayan tribe). According to the head of archaeoastronomy, Dr. John Carlson, the Mayan calendar does not end on December 21, 2012, it just ends a certain cycle, the calendar "turns over" and a new countdown begins. After all, you must admit that when your calendar for a year runs out, this does not mean the end of the world.
According to Dr. Carlson, there were no Mayan predictions about the possible end of the world, and the clue to the phenomenon of 2012-21-12 is the repetition of the cycles of chronology.
In addition, the descendants of the Mayan tribe do not associate this turmoil with the calendar. In their opinion, the people who dragged the tribe to the apocalypse absolutely do not know their traditional beliefs and worldview about the structure of the world.
Theory number 2 ("danger from space"). NASA's head of near-Earth space objects, Dr. Don Yeomans, denied all claims about the possibility of a collision of the Earth with asteroids and comets or wandering planets, since none of the proposed dangers were noticed near the Earth.
Representatives of traditional religions also argued that there would be no end of the world. In their opinion, a person should think about the meaning of his life and the truth of his actions, not only in the face of a possible apocalypse.
In addition to collisions, the threat from the sun is also refuted. According to NASA specialist Lika Guhathakurta, who heads the Living with a Star program, the Sun has indeed approached its maximum - the active phase of the 11-year cycle, but this cycle was the weakest in the last 50 years.
Also, the probability of a parade of planets is not confirmed. After all, astronomical data say that Mars, Earth and Saturn on this day were in different places in the Solar System and certainly not on the same straight line with the line of the Earth.
That is why the morning of December 22 has finally arrived!
