Eat, Drink, and Be Merry...

Dec 21, 2012

When will the world end? And how?

If you turn on the TV, pick up the paper, or glance at Google, you'll encounter Mayan mania. There's much hullabaloo about the end of the world, triggered by the end of a Mayan calendar cycle.

This radio special highlights end-of-the-world prophecies from Scientific, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Native American, meditative, Norse, Muslim, and Mayan perspectives. The Mayans were not the only ones with answers. And there's something about the Mayans that you probably didn't know.

Interviewed for this program (in order of appearance):  T. U. students Taylor Coy, Lauren Rudd, and Sara Fee, T.U. physics professor Dr. Jerry McCoy, Father Christopher Waters of the Anglican Church of Saint Paul in Owasso, Priest Kumar Gurukkal of The Hindu Temple of Tulsa, Rabbi Yehuda Weg of Chabad in Tulsa, T.U. student Tara Moses of the Seminole tribe, Sister Ellie Finley of Saint John's Center for Spiritual Formation in Tulsa, Ragnar, T.U. student Abdulah Mahayni, Allison Moore of the Islamic Society of Tulsa, and Dr. Bob Pickering, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Public Programs at Tulsa's Gilcrease Museum.
