Görmez commented on the global apocalyptic scenarios via his Twitter account on Friday in response to “frequent questions” directed at him on the issue. “We should not pay heed to fake, superstitious and untrue apocalypse scenarios,” he said. “We should [instead] concentrate on our preparations for the eternal world. You will reap what you sow in this world. Heaven is a garden, the seed of which is sown in this world. Let’s pray to God and ask him to give us bounties both in this world and the next world,” he added.
Doomsday cultists are convinced that since the Mayan calendar abruptly ends on Dec. 21, 2012, this date marks the end of the world. Thousands with New Age beliefs around the world believe that only Turkey’s ?irince and the village of Bugarach, located in the south of France, will be saved.
Scientists also scoff at the prophecy. “The world will not end in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012,” states NASA on its web site.
