Hoosiers Making Plans For End Of Mayan Calendar Friday

Last updated on Thursday, December 20, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Some people are preparing for the world to end Friday while others are preparing for a party.

Jenna Kooi of RTV6 reports that Chef Joseph's in downtown Indy is one of several places hosting an "End of the World" party on Friday.

Friday is the day some say the Mayan calendar indicates the world will end.

Some folks said they are not worried about an apocalypse on Friday.

Brian Robbins, said he actually saw NASA has on their website a link to why the world is not ending, and he always defer to the opinion of people who are smarter than him.

"The Mayans believed in cycles. And the current calendar is actually one of several cycles the lasts for thousands of years," stated NASA scientist Mitzi Adams. "The current calendar probably began somewhere around 3114 before the current era. And these cycles have gone on."

NASA seemed confident the world won't end Friday, but some people, like Robbins, are making plans just in case by attending a party.

Other people including some descendants of ancient Mayans said the calendar points to the beginning of a new era on Friday.
