Synthesis Essay
Different kinds of websites and books argue on the idea of whether the world is going to end in 2012 or not. All of them give reasons to persuade their readers as much as they could. When I went over some of the articles that talk about 2012, I asked, won’t those articles confuse people? Therefore, I have chosen two articles to see their effect over the readers. The first one is by Dr. Dr. Morrison David who is NAI senior scientist who answers a lot of questions that has been asked to NASA about 2012. The second one is by Dr. Archana who talks about different kinds of reasons why the world will end in 2012.
Dr. Archana and Dr. Morrison have different opinions about 2012. ...view middle of the document...

” (Dr. Morrison 4). In the other hand, Dr. Archana says presence of earth’s magnetic field will put the world in danger by making the North and South Pole of the earth to swap places in 2012. She says “The result is enough UV outdoors to crisp your skin in seconds, killing everything it touches.” (Dr. Archana 2) Also, While Dr Archana says the magnetic field occur every 750,000 years, Dr. Morrison says it occur every 400,000 years
Both authors talk about the Mayan calendar, but they explain it in different ways. Dr. Morrison say it is true that the Mayan calendar end in the year of 2012, but it does not predict the end of the world. He says “The main point, however, is that calendars, whether contemporary or ancient, cannot predict the future of our planet or warn of things to happen on a specific date such as 2012” (Morrison 4). In the other side, even though the Maya Calendar end simply just like regular Calendar with no predication of the world ending, Dr. Archana explains the ending of it as a prediction of the world ending by saying, “The Mayan calendar predicts that the earth will end on December 21, 2012. Given that they were pretty close to the mark with the lunar cycle, it’s likely they’ve got the end of the world right as well.” (Dr. Archana 1)
Dr. Archana includes the idea of sun storm. According to her, the sun will run out of energy in 2012 and this will destroy all satellites and planets in the galaxy since the presence of sun play big role in keeping every planets and satellites to stay on their own orbit (Dr. Archana 2), but there is no scientific prediction which prove whether the sun storm will occur in 2012. In addition, Dr. Archana supports her argument by saying “Interpretations of the Christian Bible reveal that the date for Armageddon, the final battle between good and evil, has been set for 2012.”(Dr. Archana 1) The Christian Bible does talk about the end of the world, but it does not give a specific time or date. In fact, it says that no one know the end of the world except God. This can be proven by looking the sentence which locates in the Christian Bible on Matthew 24:36. On this section, God says “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” This indicates Dr. Archana’s reason to be untrue.
In the other article, Dr. Morrison talks about the Nibiru, which is a name of Babylonian astrology used by Sumer civilization. Some people say Nibiru will come and hit the earth in 2012 (Dr. Morrison 2), but Dr. Morrison says there is no scientific evidence that shows the existence of Nibiru in our galaxy (Dr. Morrison 2). Also he says, “They also had no understanding that the planets orbited the Sun, and idea that first developed in ancient Greece two millennia after the end of Sumer.” (Morrison 2). According to Dr. Morrison, this idea came out in 1984 on Astrophysical journal letters, but it...
