2012 - A year with lots of mysteries
What makes the year 2012 soo special? The fact that the Olympics are taking place in London? The fact that United States Presidential, Senate, and House of Representatives elections wil be held? Or else its jus going to be another year in calendar?...
Noooo!!!!!!! A day in 2012 is going to be the Dooms Day!!!!The ancient Maya civilization, from Central America, had a special calendar that was mind-blowingly accurate. And it predicted that the end of the human life cycle was on December 21st, 2012, the winter solstice. The Mayans were also good at math and astrology(they accurately predicted an eclipse that occurred hundred of years later).
So people are guessing that they were right about the end of the world thing, too. Something else that has gotten scientists curious is that there are some major astronomical things happening in 2012.
Apart from the occasional eclipse and comet, the entire solar system is supposed to pass through the center of our galaxy, something that happens only once every 26,000 years. And, there’s a risk of our planet’s poles switching.Sounds crazy, but scientists say this has already happened. Also, the Indian calendar, the Kali Yuga, ends at about the same time. Coincidence? I think not:)....
A hollywood film based on this theme is being directed by the well known Roland Emmerich, the director of "Independace day". Filming began in August 2008 and is expected to be released worldwide on November 13, 2009. click here to see the trailor of that movie which could turn out to be true in real life on 2012.
