12.21.2012 the Mayan long count has run out and it is the End of the World… Are we still here?

2012-PlanetsToday is the final day in the 13th 144,000-day cycle of the ancient Mayan Long Count Calendar it is now the End of the World as we know it. Okay take a breathe… The Apocalypse has not happened… I am sure this will be just one of many End of the World blog posts and comments that I am sure will be all over the internet today. So… As the Mayan Long Count officially finishes approximately 6.11am (CMT) on 12.21.12 I’ve set this post to automatically publish right on the Official End of the World because… let’s be honest it is the End of the World as we know it because a Calender has ended and a new era is really beginning. I do have to ask a question… Are we still here?

The planets have all lined up and we can see right to the center of the Milky Way and I am sure we’ve not fell into a great huge cosmic tear, the world hasn’t flipped, we’ve blown up or been invaded by aliens, or the second coming hasn’t happened and the world is still turning.

Are you still reading this?

There of course big losers today, the entire Doomsday Industry that has been selling merchandise hand over fist and prodding the whole you are doomed fear. Sales will fall off and the hysteria will end… We are still alive it is a new day just like any other full of hope, adventure and opportunity. I urge you all to seize the day…

Now to end this blog post with what will be the most played song today… REM – The End of the World as we know it… Be gentle with the Earth my friends…
