As the year 2012 came to an end, the skeptic world was watching keenly the irrational population to see how they would react when the much awaited end of the world, as was supposedly predicted by Mayas for December 21, 2012, failed. In this apocalypse, the sun was believed to be aligned with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in about 26,000 years. The believers of this apocalypse thought that gravitational, magnetic, and solar energies would go awry when this galactic and planetary alignment occurred, causing an array of natural disasters, including the weakening of our magnetic field, allowing solar radiation to penetrate our atmosphere. However, as that date reached and passed without any such happening, it appeared that this was not another lesson to the many bigots who have been wasting their precious time predicting illusions, and this also did not enlighten the irrational population of how they were wasting a lot of energy spending sleepless nights waiting for the end of the world so they could go to heaven.
