NASA: World Won't End Tomorrow

Some say the ancient Mayans predicted the world will end Dec. 21; others say you should plan on going to work Friday anyway.

It may be inevitable that one of the many doomsday predictions found in cults or New Age mythologies may actually come true, but it's probably not Friday.

Some believe that when the 5,125-year ancient Mayan calendar runs out on Dec. 21, it determines the end of the world. NASA scientists disagree. 

According to the NASA website, the only thing that will happen on Dec. 21 is the winter solstice. 

The website also compared the lack of dates on the Mayan calendar to the lack of dates on current calendars.

"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."

Of course, those screaming doomsday are getting far more attention. 

The official Dec. 21, 2012 website even claims to have celebrity supporters such as Woody Harrelson, Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher and Shirley MacLaine. 

The Dec. 21, 2012 website also alleges a galactic problem that will cause the world to end -- something the scientists at NASA refute..

I'm really going to be depressed if I have to go to work tomorrow.
