Science, superstition and another ‘doomsday’

By Huang Chun-ju 黃俊儒

A group of Taiwanese embraced their “rebirth” by ringing a “doomsday clock” on a replica of a Mayan pyramid in Greater Taichung when it completed its countdown for the end of the world. The ringing marked the end of yet another carnival, but only until the next doomsday prophecy crops up.

Huang Chun-ju is an associate professor at National Chung Cheng University’s General Education Center.
