The world is not going to end in 2012. If anyone reading this has any doubt about that, you need to read each and every one of Ian O’Neill’s articles here on Universe today about every facet of the 2012 mania. And then if you still have any doubts, here’s another voice you might recognize who will tell you the same thing: Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson of the Hayden Planetarium and NOVA ScienceNow, has a few choice words for the entities out there spreading fear and disinformation (and looking to make a few bucks along the way) about everything that could possibly (not) happen in 2012.
I also recommend listening to the February 2, 2009 edition of The Planetary Society’s Planetary Radio, where David Morrison, Interim Director of the Lunar Science Institute and Planetary Radio host Mat Kaplan have a discussion (near the end of the show) about how the completely false claims of the 2012 fear mongers are needlessly scaring people. Its sobering.
