end of the world
Dec 21, 2012 — That talk about the Mayan calendar supposedly predicting the end of the world turned out to be just ... talk. Now, on to the next predictions about the end of the world. Watch out for 2016 and 2020.
Dec 20, 2012 — "The Maya never, ever, said anything about the world ending at any time — much less this year," says an archaeologist who helped translate the ancient culture's hieroglyphs. Still, David Stuart says, he often gets emails from people who want more details about the end of days.
Dec 6, 2012 — Prime Minister Julia Gillard helped a radio show plug its "end of the world" special by solemnly saying that the Mayans were right. Oh, those wacky Aussies. See the video.
Oct 21, 2011 — The Oakland minister who predicted the end of the world would take place on Friday, Oct. 21, was confronted by the continuation of the world instead. It marks the second time the ministry led by Harold Camping, 90, has settled on a doomsday date, only to have it tick by in quotidian fashion.
May 19, 2011 — An evangelical radio broadcaster who has said before that Judgment Day was coming, has predicted that this time it really will happen on May 21. Care to pay someone to take care of your pet in case you're swept up to heaven? You can.
