Humans (Homo sapiens) are an intelligent species population living on planet Earth.
Prelude to the apocalypse
Ever since the beginning of time, the Mayans discovered that their home planet, Earth, had a catastrophic event that will bring an end to their world on December 21st, 2012. With the Mayan Calendar still predicting the world's ending, several religious people and archaeologists found this to be true, but others thought it was just a myth and refused to believe it.
Following a massive solar flare (with an unprecedented amount of neutrinos) that caused the Earth's core to heat up its temperature so high, the Earth's crust became unstable and it caused the planet to come to an end in 2012. Ever since the discovery of the world's ending, the world governments began choosing more than 400,000 people to board the Arks to ensure that humanity survives, while the rest of the world were unaware of the upcoming catastrophic apocalypse. This is due to the orders of Carl Anheuser that they should keep the 2012 disaster a secret in order to prevent massive civil unrest, knowing that a lot of people would want to survive.
Around the world, seismic activity began to increase as the Earth's crust became more and more unstable, which caused small cracks to occur around the city of Los Angeles. This was seen by various residents, but they thought it was just normal mini quakes.
On December 21st, 2012, the worldwide apocalypse began as several earthquakes (of unprecedented strength) wrecked several continents and cities around the world, destroying Los Angeles, Brazil, Japan, Italy, Europe, Australia and Africa. Volcanoes erupted in several areas across the globe, including super-volcanoes, rendering various cities and regions uninhabitable. The Yellowstone Caldera's ash cloud rendered much of the U.S.A and Canada uninhabitable after it violently erupted earlier that day.
Throughout that day, as the skies turned from a normal blue to a dusty orange, the remaining surviving humans in destroyed cities, and some that didn't get hit by earthquakes, realized that the Mayan Calendar was right about the world ending on the very day that is happening. Several of the world's remaining cities had descended into global chaos as billions of people gathered in public places in desperate prayer, thinking that nothing can save them.
When the Earth's crust finally began to shift at 1.22 degrees, gigantic mega-tsunamis, formed by the magnitude of the corresponding quakes, rapidly flooded the entire planet with 1500 meters of water, killing the remaining humans that did not get picked up and causing all global ground communication to cease. The remainder of humanity (total of more than 400,000) survived on board the Arks when the apocalypse finally ended.
As a result of the apocalypse, the Earth's continents suffered extreme damage from the earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis, which include cities and nations, rendering them uninhabitable. Over 6 billion humans died during the apocalypse and humanity became endangered. When time was rest to year one, the global floodwaters from the tsunamis started to recede and the African continent had risen up (which did not suffer extreme damage), allowing the 2012 survivors to begin a new life there.
- Earth's human population was around 7 billion in late 2012 before the apocalypse happened. Approximately, more than 400,000 humans have survived the apocalypse, which is now left of Earth's human population.
