    The Maya calendar is amazing, and 2012 means absolutely nothing for our society. Maya civilization, known for forms of writing, mathematics and astronomy, flourished for centuries in Mesoamerica. The 2012 bit was for their society. First, the Maya calendar does not "end" at 2012 – the Long Count calendar was constructed to track a little more than 5,000 years, then reset at year zero, and thus marks the end of a specific era. Sort of like a car odometer resets to zero – your car does not explode at 100,000 miles.
    Second, the Maya calendar was constructed as a way to track the passage of time (as calendars do). It served as a marker of history – it was not, and is not, some sort of magical, mystical predictor of doom. Does it really need to do more than what a calendar is intended to do? Be amazed at the complexity and precision of this alternative calendar. The first link below is especially interesting, as it describes in detail how the calendar worked (in a base 20 system – did one have to count all fingers and toes?)

    The line from "Men in Black" comes to mind: "There’s always an Aturian battle cruiser or death ray about to end life on this planet…"

    Which means there’s always an impending catastrophe about to end things for us.

    The Myan calender goes to 21 dec 20012. That’s the end of one of their "Long Counts." While there’s vagues predictions for the ends of all the long and short count cycles, there’s NOTHING that says the world is going to end or everything stops. NOTHING.

    As you hope for more oil, others project their hopes and fears into the date. Many are New Age types that see peace love and happiness while more are the Doom Boom and Gloom school. Many of thenm have books, articles and websites. Yes, and there’s loks of "some website i forgot but it was really professional" and the great "I read it on the Internet so it must be true."

    Mayan scholars (ie degrees, done the hard work and know what they are talking about) view this as hysterical bunk.

    My prediction: One 22 Dec 20012 we’ll still be here, nothing momentous will have happened and all the doom sayers will be off on another impending disaster.

    Remember Y2K? Didn’t happen. Going back I recall the "Population Bomb" where by 2000 we’d be at standing room only. "Famine 1975"when we’d run out of food, the "Jupiter Effect" when the planets would line up. Theses were all best selling books that claimed the same thing as those dealing with 2012. Something awful was about to happen.All the authors had invested a great deal of time in writing the books. They also made a great deal of money from lectures, royalties and such. I’ve never found any that put down "Whoops I was way wrong."

    Reaserch the previous posts on this topic. It’s been asked many times and there’s lots of information; as well as balderdash.

    If Mayans were so smart, why did they go the way of the dinosaurs? 😀
