NASA has created a video (below) to debunk the urban myth that the world will end on December 21, 2012, the supposed end of the Mayan calendar.
The video was scheduled to be published on December 22, 2012, explaining why the world didn’t end the previous day.
Sounding like an episode of the 'Twilight Zone,' the film's narrator says: “If you’re watching this video it means one thing – the world didn’t end yesterday."
However, NASA is so confident that the world will not end on the 21st that it has released it now.
NASA says in the video: "Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012.”
In spite of this taxpayer-funded video, some people will still cling to the precious hope that utter destruction will occur on December 21, 2012.
