Cartago Bishop asks Costa Ricans not to believe doomsday predictions set for tomorrow

Jose Francisco Ulloa

December 20th, 2012 (InsideCostaRica.com) Tomorrow is December 21st, 2012 – a day which some believe may be the end of the world.

 

However, The Bishop of the Catholic Church in Cartago, Jose Francisco Ulloa, is asking Costa Rica residents to ignore the idea.

 

NASA has also stated that the Earth will not collide with the mysterious (and, according to scientists, non-existent) planet Nibiru, neither will there be a fatal galactic alignment, asteroid impact, magnetic pole shift, or massive solar storm, according to NASA.

 

The belief in a doomsday on tomorrow’s date stems from some people’s interpretation of the Mayan calendar, which will end its 13th, and final, “b’ak’tun.”

 

However, it is not certain what significance the real Mayan people gave the date, and scholars of various disciplines dismiss the idea that it was meant to mark the end of the world.  Professional Mayan scholars state that the predictions of impending doom are not found in any of the classic Mayan accounts.  The idea seems to have come into existence through the writings of some new age authors in the mid-1970’s.
