Complete pure nonsense! Most people fall for anything. Just ask yourself:
Who started the rumor and why
It is all rumors and false evidence is always presented to justified the lie
Stop worrying about the world ending.
In 1906 they had the same story
In 1806 they floated the same story
Enjoy your life and do not be afraid of what no one knows the answer. Live life to the fullest, because hundred years from now, same story will be pedaled to the masses!
