Almost seven and a half years ago on December 21, 2012, archaeologists using the Maya Calendar predicted that the world would come to an end. As we all know, they were wrong.
However, a recent revisit of the Maya Calendar reveals that the world is actually going to end in 2020. Dr. Sandra Coates, the head archaeologist of the team studying the calendar, admitted that her team made a mistake in their calculations of the initial discovery.
“We got to the number 2012, but we accidentally stopped there. We overlooked the “neomodern anti-dark matter cosmic hadron collider falling star equilibrium theorem” in our calculations, a regrettable beginner’s mistake. This time around, we did take the theorem into account, which gave us a value of 8 and a final answer of 2020 when the numbers were summed,” renowned scholar Coates says.
It seems like the revised calculation fits with the sign of the times as well. Not half this year has gone by and 2020 has already been off to an awful start. Let’s see: A locust invasion in eastern Africa, Australian bush fires, a Philippines Taal Volcano eruption, and of course, the coronavirus pandemic. This year may as well be the year where it all goes down.
Surprisingly, some people are embracing the end of the world. Baby boomers and millennials are unanimous in their support for the ending of the world. Baby boomers look forward to the occasion since “kids these days don’t deserve what they have,” and millennials can’t wait for the world’s end since they are sick of a “goddamned broken capitalist economy”.
Regardless of how you may perceive the end of the world, Coates reminds us that one thing remains for certain: “It’s inevitable.”
Welp! Good luck, everyone!
