One of the best things about the Internet is the speed at which it allows information to be shared. Unfortunately, this means all information -- even false ones like the news about the six-day darkness that would envelop the world in December.

The report "NASA Confirms Earth Will Experience 6 Days of Total Darkness in December 2014" was published by Huzlers.com. Considering the site labeled itself as offering "a combination of real shocking news and satirical entertainment to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief," the story should have been taken with a grain of salt at the very least.

According to the story, NASA "confirmed" that the Earth would be experiencing six days of nearly complete darkness from Dec. 16 to 22. The event would supposedly happen because of a solar storm that would spur enough dust and debris in space that 90 percent of sunlight would be blocked out.

  1. Interesting is that people like to be exited even by hoax news just to get red of their depression of daily life, that some (no mater about proof) had found for them some thing new to enjoy their Hollywood-ic excitement...so to be used to generate something...like attention money ext.....

  2. Around three weeks ago, a friend have sent to me on my mobile an Arabic article published in a (news paper) saying that NASA has announced that, "very soon Earth will change it rotation (!!!!) to the opposite direction (!!!!) so the sun will rise from the west instead east (!!!! WOW)...and this a singe of the coming of The Day of Resurrection...Arabic..Youmal Kiyaameh....and that NASA is proving verses written in the Holy Qura'an (!!!!)....I don't understand why they are using NASA's name for their (HOLY) proofs... while they deny all NASA's discoveries and findings....and deny, the universe's evolution theory...
