SMU Professors Rub off Maya’s 2012 Prediction as a Myth

With the "2012 Doomsday" prediction in talks, two SMU professors have come out to claim it as myth. They are of the view that it's only in Mayan calendars that such claims have been made that the world will end on Dec. 21.

It is claimed that ending of the world must be looked from different references instead of solely being based on the Mayan long count calendar. "For you Doomsday preppers, if the 21st rolls around and the world hasn't ended, don't worry because it could still happen," averred Professor Brigitte Kovacevich. It has also been added by sophomore Kristen Carreno that there is lingering link between Mayan and Aztec cultures and that has made way for the apocalypse myth.

It was in the year 2009 that the views about the apocalypse started rolling out and since then, these views are being reinforced now and then. It has also been asserted by Professor Michael Callaghan that instead of exploring the truth deeply, people find it easy enough to believe in what is being served in front.

Though the duo has done their job to negate the rumors, it would be worth seeing if and how their claims would make people change their perception.
