Some people are anxious because of the "End of the World" prediction as per the Mayan Calendar and often wonder if there are places here on Earth where they will be safe.
Three days before the date revealed as the apocalypse, people are already panicking and booking rooms in hotels that claimed to be safe.
There are people who are still wondering if the Mayan Calendar 2012 is true and if the world will meet its end on Friday, December 21. This topic has been hotly debated in the field of science discovering and presenting conflicting evidences that support or negate the notion of apocalypse this year.
The Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012 and is claimed to be the beginning of the world's end. While most people look at it as another prophecy that will not happen, some people believed that the prediction is true.
Other people believe that instead of destruction, humanity will enter a new era both physically and mentally. Skeptics believe nothing will happen at all and refer to the craze as an Internet hoax.
Mayan experts, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the United States government also debunked the apocalyptic prediction.
During a recent symposium in Yucatan, Mexico, three Mayan culture experts readily debunked rumours of an impending apocalypse. According to a statement released for the event, the three Mayan experts concurred that the Mayan calendar does not predict the end of the Earth.
However, there is always a possibility that the Earth will meet its doom since not all things can be predicted by science. Many people are lured to believe the prediction and are already ensuring their safety by making expeditions to some places believed to be safe from destruction.
If you are one of the believers, below are the three places where people flock to be safe from the doomsday on Friday.
- Bugarach, France - A little village in France at the foot of the Pyrenees is claimed to be safe from the end of the world when the Mayan calendar ends on December 21. According to New Agers, the local mountain has magical powers as a gate between different worlds. Due to the flocks of visitors, the mayor closed the village.
- Mount Rtanj, Serbia - Mount Rtanj is thought to house a pyramid shaped structure left behind by alien visitors thousands of years ago. The mountain will then emit a powerful force field at the moment of Armageddon, protecting those close to it.
- Mexico - Mexico where the ruins of the Mayan civilization resides invites everyone to learn more about the Mayans. Mexican officials have labeled the event the "beginning of a new era."
