2020 is an important year in human history, and many social media commentators say it’s a cursed year. Coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic has been terrifying for 2020 and various events to date have contributed to this perception. Meanwhile, conspiracy theorists say the worst has yet to come and the world will end on June 21st.
This theory, which seems utterly absurd, is based on an ancient calendar and the illusion of the end of the world prophecy. These conspiracy theorists note that the Gregorian calendar is now used by the majority of the world. But this calendar started in 1582 and these people used different calendars to record the dates. Two of the most popular are the Julian and Mayan calendars.
What do conspiracy theorists say
According to these theorists, the Gregorian calendar was introduced to better reflect the time it takes for the earth to orbit the sun. They believe that by replacing the Gregorian calendar, the Julian calendar was lost eleven days from the year it was once decided.
Over time these lost days will add up and now a conspiracy theory has developed saying that we really should be in 2012, not 2020
That means we’re technically in 2012, according to the Julian calendar. The number of days lost in a year due to the switch to the Gregorian calendar is 11 days. The Gregorian calendar (1752-2020) used 268 years. 11 days of 268 years = 2,948 days lost. 2,948 days / 365 days (per year) = 8 years”. Thus, we have calculated 8 more years. Following this theory, they say that June 21, 2020, is indeed December 21, 2012.
It may be recalled that the conspiracy theorists had previously proposed December 21, 2012, as the end of the world.
NASA said. The catastrophe was originally predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened, the disastrous day went on until December 2012 and linked to the end of one cycle of the ancient Maya calendar in the winter of 2012 – hence the predicted “disastrous day of December 21st.” With the turmoil of 2020, this conspiracy theory is back on the scene.
Meanwhile, the space agency has previously clarified: “There is no credible evidence to support the December 2012 extraordinary events. They are simply a myth.”.
