2012 is Not the End of the World

Since a few years ago, people have been saying that year 2012 is the end of the world. At 2009, the movie '2012' was released. As a result, many people all the world know about that. I am sure that you know about it too. Then, is 2012 really the end of the world? No, it is not. The scientist have made explanations that are sufficient to prove that 2012 is not the end of the world. Basically, there are 5 theories which says that 2012 is the end of the world. However, scientists have proved that all these theories are not true.

Theory 1: The Mayan Calendar Ends on Year 2012

The Mayan is a civilization in the South America. However, after 600 years, the people of Mayan have disappeared completely. However, they left behind many things. One of the things left behind is a complete calendar that is full of pictures and symbol. Based on the study by the historians, this complete calendar only shows the date until year 2012. As a result, many think that the Mayans have predicted that the world will end on year 2012. However, the scientist Aveni disagrees with this opinion. He thinks that based on the calculation method of the Mayans, 5125 years is the time required for the solar system to complete one revolution. The Mayans calculated the calendar beginning year 3114 B.C. So, instead of being the end of the  world, 2012 should be seen as a new year.

Theory 2: The Solar System Falls into the Center of the Milky Way Galaxy

On the year 2012, the whole solar system will be in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. This will happen only every 26000 years. 26000 years ago,  humans have not yet fully developed, in fact they do not know what is Earth. Some people think that if the Sun falls into the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, it will cause serious and unpredictable effects on the Earth. It may cause the poles of Earth to shift, or even cause the Earth to be attracted into the Black hole. However, the scientist Morrison advice us not to worry. In his opinion, such thing will not happen on 2012. In fact, a similar phenomenon can be observed during the Winter Solstice of every year. During that time, the Sun appears to be in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. However, it does not cause any negative effects on Earth. The Earth's gravity, the Sun's radiation, the planet's orbit and other things are all not affected.

Theory 3: The Collision with other Planet

All the while, people are always worried of the collision between the Earth and other planet. Although at all times, there are a lot of meteoroids from other space colliding on Earth, but luckily, they are all very small. Therefore, before the meteoroids reach the earth's surface, they are burnt in the Earth's atmosphere, so when they land on Earth, they are too small to cause any damage. Thanks to the atmosphere! Some people predict, a very large planet known as Nibiru will collide on Earth on year 2012. Even if it only goes near the Earth, it can cause very great damage, causing the Earth to move out of its orbit. Actually, people are worried all because a woman in USA claimed that she had received an e-mail from aliens which gives warning to humans. Based on the opinion of the scientist Morrison, he is sure that nothing will collide on Earth on year 2012. This is because if any planet goes near the Solar System, we will be able to see it 3 years earlier, but nothing have been observed until now. In addition, if there is a planet large enough to destroy the Earth, we can see it long before it collides on Earth.

Theory 4: The Predictions by the Mayans

The question is, if the Mayans have known that the world will end on year 2012, why there are no pictures which clearly says what will happen? Many historians said that after researching for many years, they have not yet found any clear predictions regarding year 2012. On the last page of the book left behind by the Mayans, there are statements that the Earth will suffer damage from heavy floods. Similar statements are also found in the legends of other races. The scientist Aveni believe, based on the Mayan's culture, this statement is not a prediction, instead, it is actually symbolizing the punishment for the human's actions . The human's actions have caused pollution and many other environmental problems. Since 2012 is a new year for the Mayans (as stated earlier), the Mayans want humans to learn from their mistakes and have a new beginning.

Theory 5: The shifting of the Earth's poles

The Earth's poles is the two ends of the Earth axis. They are located in the North Pole and South Pole. If the  Earth's poles shift position, there will be many great problems. The Earth's crust may move violently and the land of the seven continents may crack, just like an earthquake with magnitude 10. If an earthquake with magnitude 10 occurs, the whole Malaysia can be destroyed in just 10 minutes. If the crust of the whole Earth shifts at the same time, it can cause earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and other natural disasters. The damages caused will be unpredictable. But we should not worry. Based on the opinion of the scientist Adam Maloof, even though the Earth's crust is currently shifting, but the process is so slow that it takes several million years before it can cause any damage.

After reading this, you should know that year 2012 is not the end of the world. So, don't worry about it. Instead, we should protect the environment so that the Earth can live longer.
