The world coming to an end story was a misconception, you can find a video by NASA which will calm all your fears, citing “the whole thing is a misconception from the very beginning.”
According to what we have heard there was a news report going around for years, an ancient Mayan prophecy named Friday, Dec 21 2012 as the day when thee world would come to an end, according to NASA says one cycle the Mayan ends on this day, but that doesn’t mean the Earth will cease to exist.
NASA says “Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012, This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then — just as your calendar begins again on January 1 — another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar”
“The world will not end in 2012,” NASA said. “Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.”
