Is doomsday coming? There's no app for that (yet) but there are movies...

One you may not know about is the YouTube video (above) made by David Morrison, an astronomer at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California and "... one of the agency's point people on the issue of Mayan prophecies of doom,"

wrote Dennis Overbye in yesterday's New York Times.

I actually set through this movie, one of the worst I have spent money on.
It really is just an overkill of special effects. I was just waiting and waiting for it to end. Like waiting for 2012.

Nice of them to make their first error in the opening frame of the trailer: "The World's Earliest Civilization warned us", meaning the Mayans, FAR from the worlds first civilization.

Puts you on notice the rest is bs.

The Mayans made no prophecies of doom. Which they are more than happy to tell you to your face. There are plenty of other idjits (mostly white men who want to shill people of their money) misinterpeting Mayan writings, though.

My favorite infographic currently is this one.

God Bless Mr. Morrison for addressing in such a no-nonsense way a topic that is bound to cause much hysteria during the next two years.

One of the worst and yet most awesome films at the same time...
