Skooter reports 11/23/12

Mankind has long been enthralled with doomsday and hundreds of thousands of prophecies have been made about the end of our world. While a good number of these are linked with the second coming of Christ, the spotlight is now on the Maya civilization of Southern Mexico and the end of their calendar on December 21, 2012, the coming Winter Solstice. Over 3,000 books and innumerable websites assert that the Maya envisioned the Earth will be destroyed on this date.

The scenarios are truly terrifying: They foresee the Earth will be shattered by crashing with an asteroid or being dragged into the black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Others claim a galactic planetary alignment that will rip the Earth apart or the Earth's magnetic poles will budge and our planet will overturned.

The investigation of the Countdown to Doomsday last June 21st on the Summer Solstice has been launched by "Fox News Reporting" correspondents. Adam Housley reports from Palenque, the supposed "jewel of the Maya Classic Period," to find out what the Maya believed.

Another Fox News reporter Lauren Green is visiting the battlefield of Armageddon where the Book of Revelation describes the final battles of good vs. evil.

Amy Kellogg travels to the prehistoric megalith Stonehenge to watch the sun rise and ask the druids if they are there to mark or countdown to Doomsday.

While Fr. Mark Arey, heads the understanding of the New Testament's vision of the second coming of Christ whose latest translation of the Book of Revelation from Greek is now illustrated as a graphic novel.

Whereas, archaeologist Eric Cline describes the doomsday battlefield of Armageddon. And finally Evangelical preacher Marcus Lamb describes his belief that the end is truly near and he even set up a live Internet camera in Jerusalem to grab hold of Jesus' return.

It is a fact that the Maya calendar will end on December 21, 2012. But, don't believe the publicity: The world is not about to end. Discrediting the doomsday scenarios are astronomer Anthony Aveni, physicist Michio Kaku, archaeologist Christopher Powell and author Graham Hancock. As well as, psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow tells why the idea of a doomsday is fascinating to some people.
