Leonardo da Vinci's Apocalypse

Da Vinci The last supper

Can studying da Vinci's Last Supper prove the world won't end in 2012?

As many of you know thanks to my Facebook confessions, I like to geek out and watch documentaries on the History channel after hubby goes to bed. One of the documentaries I was most excited about was how da Vinci thought the world would end. Since this man is famous for his artwork, scientific advancements and weapons of war, I thought it was sure to be an interesting bit of doomsday goodness to add to our Countdown to December 21, 2012 series.

Well, dark passengers, I think I expected a more creative apocalypse scenario from the man whose work inspired author Dan Brown to trip down the rabbit hole and create The da Vinci Code.

But we still have a pending apocalypse steadily marching our way, so perhaps we’d best consider all the possibilities for how the Mayan calendar intends to kill us?

The World Shall Perish by…?

Water. You heard right, dark passengers. According to Leonardo da Vinci, the world will end in a massive flood that will blot out all life on earth.

If you had your money on zombie apocalypse, you might want to change your bet…

In fact, Leonardo da Vinci didn’t just believe doomsday would put us all in eternal watery tombs, he was obsessed with the idea. You see, as a child he witnessed a river flood well beyond its banks, destroying a town and causing massive loss of life. Witnessing such horror and death at such a young age would make an impression on anyone, but with the inexplicable link between creativity and obsession, young da Vinci probably never had a chance.

The World Shall End in the Year…?

If dying in a flood is your #1 doomsday scenario, you might be in luck. According to Sabrina Sforza Galitzia, a Vatican researcher studying da Vinci’s Last Supper, the world will end on November 1, 4006, not December 21, 2012. But the Mayans got part of it right, I guess. Galitzia claims the worldwide flood will begin on March 21, 4006, so the Mayans at least got the day right.

Apparently, this researcher was able to decipher the hidden clues da Vinci hid within his painting. Details I’ve found on the REAL da Vinci code are sketchy, but it has something to do with zodiac symbols and the Latin alphabet to represent the hours of the day. Since I’m not crazy gifted enough to work out the code on my own for you, it looks like we’ll all have to wait for Galitzia to release her findings – and explanation! – to the world.

Of course, if da Vinci really did predict the end of the world in 4006 and she deciphered his code properly, she’s got plenty of time...

So, dark passengers, do you believe the world will end in a massive flood on November 1, 4006 as Leonardo da Vinci did? Or should we all still be in panic meltdown mode as December 21, 2012 inches ever closer?
