27 November 2012. RIA-Novosti Infographics. Doomsday Calendar

______________________________

Almost every year, according to various predictions, mankind awaits the end of the world. The notorious preacher Harold Camping predicted the coming of the apocalypse; he said that the world would end 21 May 2011. Based on many years of Bible study and the use of mathematics, Camping suggested that the world would end on 21 May 2011 at 06.00. Besides this, the list of prospective dates of “doomsday” included 22 September 2012… on this day, was supposed to be the “energy end of the world”, a man-made global catastrophe. According to the calculations of NASA scientists, with the National Academy of Sciences, strong solar flares would send out an electromagnetic pulse that would fry almost all electrical and electronic equipment, leading to a disaster causing the deaths of millions of people. According to the predictions of the ancient Mayans, 21 December 2012 would be the end of our civilisation as we know it. On this day, according to an ancient treatise, something unusual happens in the solar system… the so-called “Galactic Alignment“. Earth, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn will all be in line with the Sun. Because of the unusual proximity of the Earth to the Sun, a chain reaction would begin, heavy streams of energy would saturate the atmosphere, and the Earth wouldn’t be able to withstand the shock.
