Wake up! December 21st, 2012 wasn’t the end of the world. Looks like the Mayans were wrong. It isn’t the first time in history that someone was wrong predicting the “End Of The World”. Here’s a list of some other dates when the wrong predictions came through about the end of the world.

Year 634 BCE

Many Romans feared that the city would be destroyed in the 120th year of its founding. There was a myth that 12 eagles had revealed a mystical number representing the lifetime of Rome, and some how the Eagle said the world would end. Looks like that eagle was wrong.

January 1st, the year 1000 CE

This date was known as “The Millenium Apocalypse”. Christians, including Pope Sylvester II, predicted the end of the world would happen on this date causing all sorts of riots and panic in Europe. Looks like the Pope was wrong that time.

Year 1780 CE

Various residents in New England reported that the sky was turning dark during the day. Many feared this was the end of the world. The primary cause of the dark skies are believed to have been a combination of smoke from forest fires, a thick fog, and cloud cover. Not end of the world fire.

April 23rd, 1990 CE

The “Elizabeth Clare Prophet “ predicted a nuclear war would start on this day, with the world ending 12 years later. This led people to stockpile a shelter with supplies and weapons. Later, after Prophet’s prediction did not come to pass, seeing that 2002 happened. Later she was diagnosed with epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease.

So there, now do you feel better? But when will the world truly end?
