Remember two weeks ago when we brought you the news that the Mayan calendar prediction for doomsday 2012 was wrong – and that the world would actually end in June 2020?
Well. Here we are. Still alive. Still kicking. The world isn’t on fire. Meteors haven’t landed. And there is still no sign of the seven horsemen.
However. Now there’s a new theory. And more so-called experts on doomsday and the Mayan calendar are speaking out yet again.
An evangelical Christian pastor by the name of Paul Begley, claims the Mayan elders were eight years off with their prediction.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Begley said:
Of course, the Mayan elders said this could have been the end of the world today [21 June]. They might have made a mistake.
Well, they obviously made a mistake on December 21, 2012, so they said maybe today would be the end of the world.
And they made a prediction if this wasn’t the end of the world today, certainly my birthday will come again.
December 21, 2020, during the great conjunction when Jupiter and Saturn come within 0.1 degrees of one another and create the brightest star in the skies since the star of Bethlehem.
So this is so rare and it’s going to be on the winter solstice. It’s going to be on December 21, 2020. The Mayans are now reorganising and saying this could certainly be the end of the world as we know it.
Some of the Mayan elders, who were so big on the end of the world on December 21, my birthday, in the year 2012, they missed it. They’re now saying that they were eight years off and that this Sunday [21 June] could be the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar.
But if it’s not then it’s definitely going to be on my birthday, December 21 2020, during the great conjunction.
You got two shots at the apocalypse according to the Mayan calendar again. WHAT?
Yeah sure it is mate.
