Something wicked this way comes, if one is to believe the Mayans, that is. And with the number of catastrophic events piling up around the globe, one might be tempted to believe all the hype. Here's a brief overview for the uninitiated:
According to certain prognosticators, the ancient Mayan people predicted the end of the world would occur on December 21, 2012. Why? Because their calendar happens to end on that date. Oh, and the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History claim they've found a carved fragment at an archaeological site that confirms the prediction. Other 2012 doomsday scenarios include:
- an alignment of the Earth, Sun, and Milky Way, causing a catastrophic gravitational pull
- super-volcanic eruptions along the Ring of Fire (Pacific Rim)
- rogue planet collisions (Planet X?)
- devastating solar flares
- a magnetic polar shift (yikes!)
Myths and legends may make interesting reading or movie story lines, but nothing compares to what God has in store for His people. 1 Corinthians 2:9 says, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him."
