World Ending? What will happen to my Christmas Presents?
There are many reports and media controversy about the Mayan belief that the world will end on the 21st of December 2012.
Today the papers report of one hundred people in China being arrested for spreading rumours about the end of the world. They are a fringe group and were arrested, police seized leaflets, DVDs, books and other ‘apocalyptic materials’ from those arrested, the items were said to be based on the ancient Mayan civilisation’s prophecy.
In California there is a panic setting in with the sales of bomb-proof ‘survival bunkers’. These sales have reportedly gone through the roof, one manufacturer says purchases have risen from one per month to one per day.
Is it possible the World will come to an end in 2012?
There is a probability of the end being today, tomorrow or 5000 years from now.
There is no proper method of finding out when the apocalypse will take place.These prophecies are only based on assumptions and predictions with no scientific proof.
The Mayan culture disappeared long before their calendar ended.
The Maya may have an been advanced race in astrology and mathematics;
however, they were not so proficient in their predictions.
They might have foretold the end of life in the year 2012, but they could not predict
the disappearance and demise of their own culture.
Just as the calendar in your house ends after December 31st, so does the Mayan calendar.This does not mean that the Earth comes to an end with your calendar does it?
The end of the Mayan calendar just means that the Mayan long-count period will
end and another one would begin; just as your new calendar for the year would!
At Better Furniture we are carrying on and looking forward to the New Year of 2013!
Finally, if the Armageddon is predicted to be on December 21st 2012,
then why is my washing machine warranty dated to May 2013?
Also if the World is to end what will happen to my Christmas Presents?
I do hope all will be well and we all carry on and have a lovely Christmas!
We Wish All Customers and Friends a Very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2013.
Hope to see you in the New Year here at Better Furniture Southtown Road, Great Yarmouth or our brand new store in Norwich.
Kindest Regards Joanne.
