Doomsday Predictions Debunked

By | source: Mar 21st, 2012

2012 has been a pretty good year, aside from the stigma placed on it years in advance. I’ve been fearing this year for a few years now. Not because I completely believed in the Mayan Calendar or anything of that nature, but more because the social hysteria this date has caused alone is enough to kill you alone.

For those of you who needed that one infographic to keep your hope alive in humanity, feast your eyes! Down below is a detailed description of every failed major apocalypse prediction ever made. It spans from Nostradamus to the more recent Harold Camping.

Now, I post this not to highlight the failures of others, but instead to show how someone can predict something as bold as the end of the days and it not come true. A lot of research can focus around one date all based on a hunch and many of us will ride that hunch momentarily, or to the ground. Be aware of all possibilities, but also don’t believe everything you read. The end may be predictable and it may not be, only time will tell. Live everyday like it’s your last and spread peace and happiness everywhere you go, starting with this glorious Humpday. Have a great rest of the week! [Via]
