Cambridge, England – In an interview with New Scientist magazine, world renowned theoretical physicist, Steven Hawking, has claimed the Mayan Calendar’s apocalyptic end date of 2012 is based on flawed calculations.
Hawking, a former Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, has long been a critic of the pseudoscience surrounding doomsday predictions, and in the case of claims that the Mayan Calendar points to the world ending on today’s date, he believes a simple mathematical error has been made.
“In many ways the Mayan’s were ahead of their time,” Hawking is quoted as saying, “but in others they were a little too clever for their own good. In this instance they made the mistake of double counting bank holidays, meaning their calendar isn’t due to run out for a further eight years. People should actually be worrying about 2020, that’s the real end of the civilised world.”
Hawking, an honorary life member of the MCC, goes on to explain that his realisation about the threat of 2020 came whist attending this summer’s Lord’s test against South Africa.
“I was watching Hashim Amla play a wonderful five hour match winning innings when it suddenly struck me that 2020 was the end of civilisation as I know it. Although, admittedly, my mind was already contemplating the dark path our society has taken after being charged £8.40 for a pint and hotdog at the refreshments stall behind the Lord’s Grand Stand.”
A spokesman for the Mayans was unavailable for comment, their civilisation having been conquered by the Spanish during the 17th century.
The latest edition of Professor Hawkings’ memoirs Event Horizon: Why One Day Internationals make we want to put my head inside a Black Hole is currently available in hardback, RRP £17.99.

Who is steven
… well, here we are, but calling the western world ‘civilized’ is a gross misrepresentation of its feudalist-capitalist hustory. Good riddance!
Bo, you should move to a socialist planet, Uranus would be a good choice for you!
“Anonymous” We are already in a partly socialist USA as the Corporations are allowed by our government, which is a merger of corporations and government power, to socialize financial losses while privatizing gains. Time to be “awoke”. Bo was right.
You and Bo should both go to Uranus.

I hope it ends. Seriously. The past few years have turned me to nihilism. I seriously wish the world ends. We messed up somewhere, and raised a generation of anarchists. Humanity, individualism, and reasoning is gone. I just hope it’s quick and painless.
No we do not want to end it We just need to get rid of the bad seed.
Racism , wtf are you talking about Zionism is the cause of all evil and you commie fucks
I think this is a joke. “Bank Holidays” think about it the mayans didn’t have banks. And they sarcastically say “the mayans aren’t here to comment”
It was a joke, now…not so much
You don’t have any proof you are lying. Nice way to grab attention though.
Shit . . .

welp it’s true now
Bro he was right
Read it and weep! 50/50 chance its true but I think we have until 2022 before the real shit hits. Better prep some and find a safe place.
Our bank holidays dumbass not theirs.

Looks to me if one uses the Coptic (Egyptian/Ethiopian) calendar it is the beginning of September, 2020. Buckle up!
Q+ sent me
No, the Mayan calendar had it right; it’s the Gregorian calendar that moved “time” up 8 years. Why? They know why.

OMG Stephen was a great man I have a message: We all need to from this moment on ,,, is to revive our world, and to do that and to save our planet and our selfs,,,,,, is to have half the people go to work at night time and keep things clean for the day companies will have to split their employees and work at night also at home during day and night. also police a day and night police chiefs for every city and also Day and Night Mayors for the city’s we can market more items and make more money while saving the planets and your selves…. this came to me in a dream by bigger powers than myself
I was told the new sight for man kind: we need to not judge,not only the day but into the light of darkness (night)
We as a whole need to become 24 hours of protecting the human race and planet not just a 9 to 5 job anymore

You think? Interesting
Welp, here we go boys, the end of the world
They spelled his name wrong, I can’t find the interview on NewScience at all, and there’s no other articles about Stephen saying this. There’s ones where he says how it will end, however.

Coach Gary said:
Maybe the math was right but the assumptions about our solar system are wrong. Tycho Brahe’s binary system might resolve the math and then coincide with the Saturn/Jupiter convergence on the winter solstice this week?? Sadly that means the world ends this week.
But the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction has happened before. In fact, every 19 years.
And the article is a fake one, it’s completely false.
Coach Gary said:
Agreed, esp if you can’t spell his name it likely not true, but the topic is very interesting. Saturn/Jupiter conjunction is every 19.8 yrs but it doesn’t happen on winter solstice very often. An observable incident if you have a winter solstice machine…like Maes Howe or Stonehenge. You just have to wait a long time for the next conjunction on winter solstice… about 24,877 yrs
Maybe he meant the “Coronavirus” as the end of the world we know.

Good luck Tyler
It has begun.
well, it’s 2021 now. we made it, however it’s already been a shitty year.
So I think math may be wrong again knowing Pluto’s orbit is 248 years and they say it’s last pass was around 1776 well then that makes 2024 the actual end mark? Pluto brings destruction and rebirth
You people are crazier than hell.
