The U.S. government wrote a helpful blog post on Monday titled, “Scary Rumors About the World Ending in 2012 Are Just Rumors.”
The post on USA.gov says NASA scientists have received thousands of letters from people convinced that the world will end on Dec. 21, based on a misunderstanding of the ancient Mayan calendar that’s been promulgated in doomsday message boards online. Some people think a giant comet will strike Earth that day, others that we are about to collide with another planet. A NASA scientist said he’s received several letters from young people contemplating suicide because they believe the apocalypse is coming.
“The world will not end on December 21, 2012, or any day in 2012,” the post says.
When they tell you not to panic, thats when you run!
