'World will end on June 21' claim conspiracy theorists

The year 2020 has not been fruitful, for we all have faced coronavirus outbreak, floods, communal riots and several other concerns bothering our lives. Observing this, many across the world, wish that the year either comes to an end or things change for the best.

However, many conspiracy theorists believe that the world is yet to face the worst catastrophic event. According to their predictions, the world will come to an end on June 21, 2020. They claim that the earlier calculations based on the Mayan calendar were wrong.

Amused? Read that again?

If you did, then you read it right. Scientist Paolo Tagalougin, in a tweet posted on June 12, 2020, said that as per calculations and based on the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012 - and nearing the same date, i.e. December 21, 2012, which was predicted back in the year, when it was said that the world would end. 

The tweet has now been deleted. 

But Mirror UK quoted Paolo's tweet which said, “The number of days lost in a year due to the shift into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days. For 268 years using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days. 2,948 days / 365 days (per year) = 8 years”.

NASA questioned this theory asking for science and evidence. 

Explaining the same, it said, “The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 - hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012.”

 “There is none, and for all the fictional assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, we cannot change that simple fact. There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.”
