The train gently rolls towards the old city of Cork, I am besuited and heading for a meeting and have my business head, as much as it is, on. I am aware that some comments fall flat and some are ignored but nothing worth being concerned about.
My mind wanders to the next “End of The World” that is due in over a weeks time.
That is when the much misunderstood Mayan Calendar finishes its cycle. Thus starting the end times and if not the coming of Jesus then the apocalypse. Obviously, this isn’t going to happen.
Mainly as it is utter bollocks.
The Mayan’s don’t take into account leap years (which are a relatively recent invention) nor does it account for the change of dates, from the Julian to the Gregorian calendars in the Seventeenth Century. That change effectively took 11 days out of the year. Not only that but the Mayans are unlikely to have used the 365 days a year system developed by the Persians.
Additionally, Time is effectively a concept we developed to structure our lives.
So can people chill out? Please? Just a little?
