So… You’ve awoken to a post apocalyptic world. Everyone’s gone. The houses are all abandoned, the cars have rolled to a stop in the middle of street. Here’s what you do.
The 21st of December, 2012. Supposedly, that’s the day the world will end, so says the great Mayan Prophecy.
It doesn’t matter how many people have said that this was a misconstrued translation, that had nothing to do with the end of the world. It doesn’t matter how many people point out that neither the Mayans, nor anyone else, has ever said, nor would ever have any reason to say, that the world is ending. It doesn’t even matter that upon the incorporation of leap years, a system that the Mayans didn’t have, their December 21st, 2012, has already passed by several months ago. Either way, it seems that thousands of people believe in the phenomenon, and believe that by cosmological collision, nuclear catastrophe, pandemic, or natural disaster, the world as we know it will either be destroyed, or be radically altered following a mass extinction event.
Now, I needn’t point out that there is absolutely no scientific evidence to support this ridiculous notion, nor do I need to remind you that it’s based on an absolute fallacy. My concern is that, in a sense, it will come true.
The year is 2012. The ancient Mayans famously predicted that the world would end. I’ll never know what I was going to be when I got older. They said that on the 21st of December, we would all die. It’s sad, but it’s true. Everyone, this is the last year we have to live our lives.
It makes me feel so bad for all the children who’ll never walk and talk, but this is the total truth. The world is ending, and I think it’s bullshit that all these scientists and whatever, think they know better than these super intelligent ancient people.
You are all going to die, and I feel like an idiot for not making the most of my life. If you want to believe the stupid, condescending scientists; then fine, but this is the end, and I feel utter sorrow for the people who can’t accept that. I know, it’s shit… But this is life.
This whole thing has been a wake up call to me. What it tells me is that I need to make the most of life while I can, and not let all the petty nonsense get in the way of that.
If all of you really think about the solid evidence that the world is ending, then you’ll see that you only have a few short months to find out what the important things in your life are, and only a total bloody idiot would waste this last chance.
We all need to wake up and see what’s happening, and how much pain and suffering is still left in the world; the plight of the less fortunate. Only a moron would try to ignore it all, and you hold the key to bringing a little joy to the lives of the impoverished people of this world, before the definite, and inevitable, end. We are all in this together. Let’s make this final year count.
For god’s sake.
