Pope Benedict XVI told Catholics over the weekend that supposed Mayan predictions that the world will end next month are not gospel truth.

 

Agence France-Presse via the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports the Catholic Pope has told the faithful to disregard Doomsday predictions.  The report quotes him as saying that Jesus "wants to stop his disciples of every epoch from being curious over dates, forecasts, and wants to give them the key to... the right road to walk today and tomorrow to enter into the eternal life."

 

Despite this, the report says, around 90,000 people are expected to attend an event in Guatemala City on December 21 just in case.
