2012: the year of destruction or so many think. As the year comes to a close, internet websites and people alike are all a buzz about this one particular day. The day the Mayans predicted the world would end- Dec. 21, 2012 to be exact. Most of what people hear about this is rumors and lies; no one really knows when it will end.

Debates on what will happen on this day can be found in many places. I searched the internet for myself and found articles that say all different types of things. Some say on that day, the sun will align with the plane of the galaxy, throwing the Earth off-balance and changing the world tremendously. We will no longer be aligned with the sun! Another article I found states that the sun aligns itself with the plane twice a year so this can’t happen anyway. Talk about... [continues]
