Don’t worry, folks. Jersey Shore star Vinny says that he doesn’t believe in all this Mayan Apocalypse malarkey, and is certain that we’ll all wake up on December 22, our world intact.
Though his co-star Deena is a little bit worried that there might be something apocalyptic to the Mayan calendar’s imminent expiration, Vinny thinks that we’ll all find ourselves alive and well beyond December 21.
“I’m just trying to stock up,” Deena told MTV News. “Not only ’cause it’s the Mayans. If it were just the Mayans thing, it wouldn’t really be bothering me, but they said all the planets are aligning. So I’m just preparing for all the power to go out, anything that might happen. I really wish I made enough money to make a bomb shelter, but that didn’t happen.”
“I can debunk everything,” responded Vinny. “I’m a geek, so I kind of like know what’s going to happen.”
“I’m no scientist, but pretty much this whole thing started, it was a money-making thing so that people can capitalize off it, make movies off of it and websites start to sell things like ‘prepare for it’ and things like that,” he reasoned.
“But there’s no scientific evidence, actually. You can’t plan the end of the world without scientific evidence. The planets, they will sort of align but they did it a couple years ago, nothing happens. They always align with each other.
“There’s no other planet coming towards us because we would actually see it, and the poles shifting, it takes like 1,000 years for the poles to reverse. It doesn’t happen overnight. And then the Mayan calendar, just like our calendar ends end of December/January 1, theirs ends and a new one begins. Just the fact that there’s a thousand different philosophies makes it not true.”
Works for me.
Do you agree with Jersey Shore’s Vinny? Will the Mayan Apocalypse come and go without incident?
