4:01 am Pacific on the 21st, New Zealand will be at
12:01 am on the 22nd, and some parts of Kiribati will be at
2:01 am on the 22nd

What's more, Kiribati will be a full day ahead of Hawaii, even though they're on the same longitudes.

In short, there's no chance the world can end on 12/21/12, because when Hawaii enters the 21st, Kiribati enters the 22nd.

Hmmm. Who would have thought that common sense and apocalyptic nonsense fit together so neatly. Scientific skepticism FTW! The question is, however, whether the same logic holds true for the events described in the Book of Revelation, for instance? Or does it apply only to the Mayan calendar tripe?

The world might not be ending tomorrow, but you can still drink like there's no tomorrow! Since it's Friday, there's probably a decent end of the world party near you. Bottoms up, Earth!

This applies only to the tripe. Revelation doesn't offer exact dates like 12/21/12, so there's no way to debunk it except in regards to past events. Many of the events there can be applied to Israel and to Mary almost 2000 years ago.

Apparently, while other crackpots may come up with other dates for the End, a computer has already calculated a date, and...well, let's just say there's plenty of time to plan:
