Dr. David Stuart recently calmed nerves in a special segment of Academic Minute on NPR member station WAMC focusing on the ominous (and rapidly approaching) apocalyptic date, December 21, 2012. Stuart reassured listeners nationwide that the ancient Mayans viewed December 21 as a date of great meaning and importance, but never actually predicted an end to the world. Thanks Dr. Stuart, looks like we’ll be finishing up our holiday shopping after all.
