NASA = Not Another Stupid Armageddon

NASA is at it again. This time they have a whole web site dedicated to debunking the end of the world in 2012. Ipso facto: The world will end.

If NASA says it isn't true, you know there is a conspiracy. Yes, another nail in the coffin that proves unashamedly that the world is ending.

With conspiracies, it is hard to prove they really are there. It has been said that the best way to make something secret is to not say anything at all, even a lie. NASA does rockets, so they don't do the conspiracy thing very well. Worse they have many facts wrong.

The first issue is Armageddon itself. I have written here before that that Armageddon is a place. So it is very difficult to say a place won't happen. Of course, even more telling, they don't mention Armageddon on the web page. That's very telling.

Better yet, NASA is trying to prove a negative. They are saying that they don't have any evidence of the end of the world and thus can't prove the world will 'not' end. Shame on NASA.

My best evidence is related to part of the web page:

Q: Does the Mayan calendar end in December 2012?
A: Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then -- just as your calendar begins again on January 1 -- another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.

NASA is just grasping at straws by answering like this. First of all, how do they know I have a calendar in my kitchen? Is this technological fallout of the Mars rover that let's them spy on my kitchen calendar? But spying aside, they didn't look too close at my calendar. They say it just ends, but my calendar has a mini calendar for next year. It even has a web address for ordering a new calendar with new pretty pictures for next year. I have seen no evidence that the Mayan calendar has any such thing. NASA is just barking up the wrong calendar!

But things get worse! At the end of the article they point to other websites for debunking 2012. For example: http://www.badastronomy.com/bad/misc/planetx/nutshell.html. Bad Astronomy is a great website on astronomy, but not exactly a reference site for the Mayan calendar. Sloppy if you ask me. NASA needs some better writers for their anti-conspiracy-conspiracy web content.

There was one great piece of the website that I loved: The prediction that the world would end on May, 2003 from being destroyed by the wayward planet Nibiru (also known as Planet X). I had not heard of this prediction before. Curious... Does that mean NASA knew, but are just now telling us? Very curious.

All in all, this may be sort of overkill attributing conspiracy to cover up the end of the world. They also predicted that man would travel to Mars before our computers were destroyed by Y2K. NASA may have gotten us to the Moon, but they are poor at prediction. If you think about it, maybe this is their plan... NASA is bad about prediction, so the web page must be wrong, therefore it is true because it is real. Think about it!


  1. Ok, I'd just like to say, this entire post is complete speculation on your part. You say that NASA is covering something up because YOU didn't know about the 2003 prediction before it didn't happen. Um... maybe you just didn't hear about it? And you'll really believe the predictions of a civilization with no technology capable of spotting celestial bodies outside of our own view over a large group of expert scientists with years upon years of astronomical knowledge and expertise? Well that just seems silly to me.

    And your point that "NASA is trying to prove a negative": Interesting point, except for the fact that you're trying to prove, with no emperical evidence whatsoever, that it WILL happen. With virtually no real solid evidence, NASA is right to conclude that nothing will happen. Who are you to decide that they are wrong? Do you have scientific training? Do you have access to the leading high-tech astronomical instruments? Or are you simply a conspiracy theorist with nothing better to do than distrust the government and live life waiting for an abrupt end?

    Oh and one last thing: NASA predicted we'd have a man on Mars before Y2K, sure. And it hasn't happened yet, sure. But really, how can you seriously expect anyone to make that prediction? In fact, I'll go ahead and be as bold as to say it was not a prediction at all, but a goal. It was a hope that mankind would somehow develop the technology to get that far by the year 2000. Well the goal was not met because we have yet to figure out how. Please, if you'd like to tell me that the Mayans could predict a better time for us to get there, be my guest, but you're wrong. Good day.

  2. First, I apologize for the delay in moderation of your comment. I blame this delay on the Blogger conspiracy and/or my Safari browser. One or the other requires two clicks rather than just the one.

    Now that you have been properly moderated, please allow me to introduce myself. I am Daniel Brookshier, author and humorist. This indeed is just one of my jobs, but this blog indeed is about the humor part.

    That explained, I am just pulling your leg. Given that leg seems to be devoid of a funny bone, all the more precious.

    Thank you for playing and please come again!!!!


Thank you for commenting on the end of the world. Hope you got the last word this time!
