Like most we read some rubbish online and in the press with the ‘end of the world’ being no exception.
With Christmas coming up the need for easy-to-cover filler articles increases as thoughts turn to pre-writing for the festive period. What is better than a (im)possible doomsday as it ticks all the boxes, allowing the usual facebook trawls to cut and paste before – during the ‘event’ – and after.
Wrexham.com will not be encouraging people to give ‘their thoughts’ on what people are going to do if the world ends, nor will we be asking what people are doing to ‘prepare’ or if they are having end-of-world-parties. Likewise we have no interest in countdowns, or post non-apocalypse ‘dont you feel stupid now’ interviews.
As NASA says “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.”
We put this in not to explain why the world will not end but to detail how utterly stupid such ‘world ending’ claims are. A never before seen fictional planet is going to hit earth tomorrow apparently, as predicted 6000 years ago. The predictions are undocumented, but obviously very much true.
It is trivial and fun, but the amount of coverage is saddening. Is there anything going on in Wrexham, North Wales, perhaps the UK or even the World that is more important?
(This article in itself is annoyingly ‘filler’ on the subject however you wont hear another peep from us about it.)
