The year 2020 has been very fearsome because of COVID- 19 or Coronavirus pandemic, wars, civil unrest, and due to some natural disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes, etc. are pretty big indicators of annihilation and make 2020 as the worst year. Now a conspiracy theorist knew as Doomsday theory is saying that the world will end on June 21.
The reading of the Mayan calendar was wrong. Conspiracy theory is based on the ancient calendar named Mayan Calendar. Which sounds unique that predicted the end of the Earth. While the world didn’t end on December 21, 2012, as originally vaticinate by calendar readers.
Two of the most popular calendars were –
- Mayan calendar
- Julian calendar (Islamic calendar)
How does the conspiracy theory arise around the Mayan calendar?
According to experts, the Gregorian calendar was introduced to shows better the time it takes Earth to orbit the Sun. The Julian calendar converted into the Gregorian calendar, the 11 days were missed from the schedule, and it cropped the conspiracy theory.
But it is believed by many that as many as 11 days were lost from the year that was once determined by the Julian calendar. Most of the world adopted the use of the Gregorian calendar in 1582. That is the calendar we know today.
Why the Mayan’s prediction was off by eight years and change?
Tagaloguin’s calculation says that when these lost days are accounted for, we are in the year 2020. Following the Julian Calendar, we were technically in 2012. The number of days lost in a year due to the change into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days. For 268 years, we were using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days.
According to the Sun, two thousand nine hundred forty-eight days / 365 days (per year) = eight years, scientist, Paolo Tagaloguin tweeted last week. The tweets have since been now deleted.
The report, adding up all the missed days, the end of the world, according to the Mayan calendar, could be around June 21. According to the Gregorian calendar, a scientist has claimed that June 21 in 2020 would be December 21, 2012. Within hours, the theory spread like wildfire on social media platforms like tweeter, Facebook, etc. increasing the lunacy in people’s minds.
The Maya long count calendar is the one that has attached attention from conspiracy theorists. People who have trusted in an unfortunate end at all the people who live on the Earth. According to their reading of the Mayan calendar and explanation of the Maya belief in world ages. The schedule said that the world was ending in December 2012.
The suspicion has become so big that a prominent high-spending Hollywood movie called 2012 shows how Earth can be destroyed by environmental change. There was another theory where many people “predicted” that the world would end in September 2017.
It was believed that a planet named Nibiru would collide with the Earth and destroy it. NASA shut that down and stated that
“Niburu doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.”
However, Hasan Al Hariri, CEO of the Dubai Astronomy Group, has rubbished these reports as a hoax and said the theory that the world will end on June 21 is highly unscientific and illogical.
Doomsday prophecies have a rich history, and believers tend to overlook the scientific evidence that disproves them. In this case, the doomsayers fail to take into account the complexity of Maya timekeeping.
It’s unknown if believers are planning to visit Mayan sites in Mexico and Guatemala, as many did in 2012, but you might want to finish that deck at least.
