Is the end of the world nigh?
Do we really have only a few more days on this earth?
Much has been written and discussed about the supposed end of the world on Dec. 21, due to the interpretation by some of the Mayan calendar.
As the end-of-world frenzy ramps up, the Kamloops Astronomical Society is presenting End of the World Theories at its Wednesday, Dec. 12, meeting, which will take place in room 375 in the Science Building at Thompson Rivers University.
To coincide with the Mayan calendar’s “end of the era and beginning of the new long calendar”, various theories will be discussed at the Kamloops Astronomical Society’s monthly meeting.
Included will be discussions on a collision with Nibiru, solar maximum, black holes, Mayan end of the long count calendar and interaction between Earth and Alcyone, the largest star of Pleiades cluster.
