Conspiracy theorists claim Mayan calendar was wrong and 'world will end on June 21'

From the coronavirus pandemic to an influx of terrifying murder hornets, 2020 has thrown a number of tricky obstacles in humanity’s way.

But the worst is yet to come, according to conspiracy theorists, who claim that the world will end next week.

The bizarre theory is based on the fact that when the Gregorian calendar was introduced in 1582, 11 days were lost from the year, to better reflect the time it takes Earth to orbit the sun.

While 11 days might not sound a lot, over 286 years it adds up, with some conspiracy theorists claiming we ‘should be in 2012.’

In a now-deleted Twitter post, scientist Paolo Tagaloguin said: “Following the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012.

“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”.

According to this theory, June 21 2020 should actually be December 21, 2012.

If you cast your mind back to 2012, you may remember various theories, indicating the world would end on December 21.

NASA 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.”

Unsurprisingly, the world did not in fact end on December 21, 2012, and is very unlikely to on June 21 2020.

NASA explained: “For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, where is the science? Where is the evidence?

“There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.”

thanks for the heads up! Will have to get my shit together before Sunday. No more bills and no more worries.

Well, the guy up there is learning fast and well with GNR, here's Sunday and no end of the world!

What have cause the end of the world to be delayed? The pandemic? The protests? Maybe God will release a 30 minute lifeless video on YouTube with his "best moments" of Earth.

I'm ready to give up on this band. I know, I know, live my life, don't ask or wait for nothing in return, but why do they keep on giving us hope? It's better to do nothing than this "neither here nor there" they are doing for years!

"Well, the band doesn't owe you anything!"

Well, fuck you! (not you, you lol, but them) ;)
