December 21, 2012: NASA Scientist Says 25 Million Americans Stockpiling Guns, Machetes for Doomsday
December 21, 2012 may or may not be doomsday but apparently at least 25 million people think that there won't be a Christmas this year because of the Mayan apocalypse.
That's a pretty scary statistic considering that a good percentage of these people are probably hoarding guns and other weapons to protect themselves from the impending doom. Will these people go crazy on December 20, ahead of the supposed end date?
Apparently, that thought is worrisome to NASA and the US government. A senior NASA scientist went on Current TV in yet another effort to quell the rising panic about the approaching doomsday date.
"A lot of young people believe this and that is pretty scary. I hear from kids who say they can't eat, they can't sleep, they're considering suicide..." said NASA scientist David Morrison. "There's a poll that suggest that 25 million Americans don't expect to see Christmas this year...I worry about those people. There's nothing that's going to happen to the earth, no cosmic catastrophe. But it's a little scary to think of millions of people who are storing up guns and ammo and machetes. I just hope they stay in their hole on the 21st and don't come out and make a mess."
He's right. If all the people who think the world will be ending on December 21, 2012 come out a day or so ahead of time and kill people, rob stores or cause all out chaos, there really will be a disaster of epic proportions.
Are you worried about the 25 million people expecting a doomsday type scenario on 12/21/12? Do you think there will be mass chaos whether the Mayans were right or not? and do you have the 37 items necessary to survive any disaster?
What will happen on December 12, 2012? Would there be something significant or just an ordinary boring day? We will find out soon!
December 21, 2012 is the end of the Mayan calendar.
December 21, 2012 end of the Piscean Age of secular materialism, and the true beginning of the Age of Aquarius, which will last for one thousand years. It is also prophesied in Revelation chapter 20 verses 1-3.
Manny Pacquiao has refused to retire and call it quits on his 17-year professional boxing career following a sixth round knockout defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez that left him lying face down on the canvas. He said he is ready to fight again after losing by knockout to Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez.
"after a few months, back to training and back to fight."
In the sixth round of their non-title welterweight bout on Saturday (Sunday in Manila), Marquez finally got his first win over Pacquiao in four attempts.
The 39-year-old Mexican lost twice and drawn once in his three previous fights against the 33-year-old Pacquiao.
With just a second left in the round, Marquez's stinging right hand sent Pacquiao face first to the canvas.
Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum also remained open to the possibility of a fifth fight against Marquez.
"Why not? People love this action." said Arum. "This fight will go down in history as a ring classic. If they wanna fight again, why not?"
Pacquiao too was willing to face Marquez again. "No problem. That's up to my promoter," the Philippine congressman said.
On being knocked out, he said that was part of boxing. Pacquiao admitted that he lost after becoming overconfident during the fight.
Pacquiao, who will turn 34 on December 17, is the first eight-division world champion, and the first to win the Lineal Championship in four different weight classes.
He is a three-time The Ring and BWAA "Fighter of the Year" (for 2006, 2008, and 2009) and the Best Fighter ESPY Award in 2009 and 2011.
Pacquiao was also named "Fighter of the Decade" for the 2000s by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA), World Boxing Council (WBC) and World Boxing Organization (WBO).
However, his loss to Marquez is already his second in row after losing to American Tim Bradley in June this year.
The financial magazine Forbes said Pacquiao's loss "could negate a $100 million future payday for Manny which would be earned from a dream match-up against Floyd Mayweather that some estimate is worth $250 million in PPV (pay-per-view) sales."
According to a Forbes estimate, Pacquiao earned $62 million between July 2011 and June 2012, including around $6 million in endorsements.
The Pacquiao-Marquez rivalry is said to be one of the biggest in the world of boxing.
