DETROIT (WWJ) –  Should folks start getting their bucket list items crossed off before December 21?  One scientist doesn’t think so.

We’ve heard about it, read about it, and watched a movie about it. The ancient Mayan calendar is believed to end on December 21, 2012 and that signifies to some that a huge cataclysm of some sort will end life as we know it. Theories range from a collision with an unknown planet, being swallowed up by a black hole, or even a shifting of the earth’s magnetic poles.

David Morrison, a leading space scientist and director of the Carl Sagan Center, told WWJ’s Rob Sanford that it’s all bunk.

“There are all of these stories and any scientist can look at them and see that they are fundamentally flawed,” Morrison said. “People seem to want there to be a cataclysm. Well, there isn’t going to be one.”

Morrison said enjoy 2013.
