The U.S. government is rebutting claims that the end is nigh.

"The world will not end on December 21, 2012, or any day in 2012," an unsigned USA.gov blog asserts.

Some New Age theorists believe that the ancient Mayan civilization predicted a late December doomsday for all of humanity. Others believe the date signifies the start of a new era. Their predictions are based on the idea that the Mayan Long Count calendar "ends" in 2012 — something that scholars say is a misrepresentation.

If they know that it will not end then they probably decided to end it before the Mayan end.

I am so thankful we have our government to tell me that, I have been so worried! Every million of dollars it cost them to research this was worth it!

How does that saying go?

Believe nothing until it’s officially denied.

I wasn't overly worried about the Mayan calendar thing. Until now.

“The world will not end on December 21, 2012, or any day in 2012,”

That’s because $16 trillion in research proves that it already happened on January 20, 2009 right around noon Eastern time.

All of the doomsday, end-of-the-world, prophets throughout recorded history have been wrong, as far as I can tell. Not exactly a sterling record......of course, you never know....

That's actually the Aztec calendar. It looks nothing like the Mayan calendar stone.

The world won’t end in 2012, but the administration is doing everything it can to make it end in January of 2013.

Damn! I’ll have to be a little more careful about what I steal from the internet. I feel kind of foolish now for thinking it was humorous.

It was humourous — no reason to feel even slightly foolish. I didn’t know the difference myself; until it was recently pointed out to me elsewhere.

Even the Mayans couldn’t have accounted for the additional hell on earth due to Obama.

No mention of the most likely and obvious apocalyptic trigger, the one with the sister named Maya.

Didn’t believe in this stuff until right now - if these lot say it isn’t going to end then we are all screwed.
