What did the Aztecs say about 2012?

So I know there’s this all this hype going on about the Mayan calendar and 2012, but I prefer to look at it from an Azteca perspective.

According to the Aztecs, we are living in the 5th sun, or creation, and that this sun will eventually be destroyed by quakes, similar to how the previous four creations were destroyed by hurricanes, a fiery rain, jaguars, and a flood.

The finite perspective on time that the Aztecs held is particularly interesting to me. I understand that 2012 is not simply another completion of the 52-year Calendar Round, but part of an even greater cycle? As far as I know, there are no greater cycles than the Calendar Round, so there was no starting point or zero date of Aztec history, therefore time will continue in ceaseless cycles. So why is it said that 4 Olin be destroyed in 2012? I just can’t find any evidence for this through Aztec calendar research!

Also, does anyone know if there are any communities in Mesoamerica today that still celebrate some form of the New Fire Ceremony?
