What is the Myan Calender that says the world will end in 2012?

Well, i know that the world ending in 2012 sounds a bit radical. And i do believe that it would be hilarious to watch the movie 2012 in 2013. llololololololol But I am a tiny bit worried about this whole "Myan Calender rnding at 2012" thing. Who are the Myans and WTF did they say that the year 2012 was going to be the end of the world?

FLASHBACK—– this year, i forget when it was, was supposed to be the zombie appocolypse, right? That sounds rediculous, right? I didn’t have a zombie plan either way. lol i still hid a giant extra sharp knife under my bed though…

Who answers my question and is either 8-18 years old? Tell please. I’m 13, and im afraid of my imagineation no matter what time it is. And of course, my imagineation takes over my brain, and im always thinking: what If? What if it does happen? Will i die? What will happen? Thats why im scared. Sooooo someone help me please. :^)

1. There is no Mayan prophecy of doom. In only one of several Mayan cities, there is a damaged inscription that says at the end of the 13th baktun, nine support somethings (probably gods) will descend from somewhere to somewhere else. That is what is actually known.

A baktun is a period of 144,000 days and it is a unit in the Mayan "long count" of days from some date in their legendary past. The trouble is that nobody knows exactly what that date in their legendary past the count started. If the first guess is correct, and nobody including the ancient Mayans made any mistakes, then the end of the 13th baktun will be about 21 or 23 December 2012 by our count. The Mayan civilisation was not a single country, they had a number of city states which were often at war with each other and what was believed in one city might not have been believed in the next. And they did not predict World War 1. Nobody did, not even the people alive in June 1914 knew it was coming.

1A. The addle brained ex-hippie who first claimed that this stuff about gods was significant believes he is a reincarnated Mayan princess or priest. But even he did not say "end of the world" and he didn’t invent all the garbage about planetary and galactic line ups.

2. The planets X and Nibiru do not exist. If either did exist and were due to be near the Earth in late 2012 they would be visible with binoculars now, or even to the naked eye. Why can’t anyone see them? Don’t talk about them being only visible in the southern hemisphere, I live in Australia and there are three astronomical observatories within a few miles from my house.

3. The other real planets will not line up. The positions of the planets have been known with great precision for centuries and where they will be on any day in the next tens of thousands of years can be calculated fairly easily. Despite the fact that a few can get almost in a line it cannot happen with all of them. Even when most get lined up they are never in a single line and they have no effect on us. The only other planet that does is Venus, which is by far the closest sometimes and is thought to raise a tide in the middle of the Pacific Ocean a couple of millimetres high. It does that on a very frequent basis, like a few times every 5 years and has done since the beginning of the solar system. Big deal.

4. The galactic line up claims are false. There are at least three versions of this, the only one that is close to true was closest to true in 1998 and it has been getting more and more away from a line up as the years pass, and it happens twice every year. Another big deal.

5. A peak in solar activity is expected in March 2013. Yes, that is 2013, not 2012. These peaks do not equate to solar storms. Solar storms and similar events can and do happen at any time. Yep. a third big deal.

6. Bibles predict it. Which Bibles? Who claims it and which Bible predicts it? We want the details of this. That’s how life works. You make a claim, you back it up with facts, You are aware I suppose that Harold Camping used the Bible to predict the rapture on 21 May 2011. Well it didn’t happen, just like the hundreds or thousands of other Bible predictions that did not happen since 320AD when the first Bibles were compiled.

7. If you believe that tsunamis, earthquakes, storms and hurricanes are signs of the end of the world, then you have swallowed the nonsense preached by religious cranks who have been saying this sort of thing for 1980 years and have always been wrong. That superstitious garbage has only to do with a crank version of Christianity and has nothing to do with supposed prophecies of doom supposedly based on a single damaged Mayan inscription. Tsunamis, earthquakes and hurricanes have always happened and always will.

8. This is not a joke. It is a fraud. A few dozen people know how to make money out of this sort of thing and write books filled with lies and create web sites and video clips by the dozen promoting it. Yes, you have seen a "lot" of web sites. How do you know that they are not created by the same few dozen people? Do you see any advertising of these books etc on those sites? How do you know that the tens of thousands of questions about doom in 2012 on Yahoo Answers since 2006 were not put here by people promoting this junk?

It does not matter exactly what is on the doom site or the question, since it is all lies anyway, just as long as it says "doom in 2012" which might lead to someone buying a book or a DVD.

Three dozen confidence men and a few loonies.

I’m 13. (skip to last two sentences to skip all the additional info) Nah it’s normal for most kids to be worried about death. The Myan calendar just ends cause they didn’t have enough room. If there was supposed to be destruction or something then it would be taken more seriously. Also, the Myan 2012 is just a marketing tool. There is definetly more Christians than Myans and some time during last May this crazy guy thought that the Earth would come to an end like the revelations. The only reason why the media focused on 2012 is cause its catchy. Myan 2012 Myan 2012 Myan 2012 instead of Christian May Christian May Christian May. Don’t worry about the world ending. Just pay attention for earthquake warnings and tornados.

Oh boy. . .here we go. . .listen Kyle, the Mayans predicted the end of this age on 12/21/12, NOT the end of the world! That’s the prediction of fanatics and terrified rabbits.

If the world does end on 12/21/12, it will be by our hand and decision, not the Mayans.

This whole issue hearkens back to December 31, 1999. People predicted that the next day, bank accounts would be emptied, airplanes would fall out of the sky, trains would crash, the power grid would shut down, World War III would accidentally start–all because of the hyped Y2K computer glitch.

Well, the sun came up on January 1, 2000 and do you know what happened? Nothing!

Do you know who the Mayans were? How did we get possession of the Mayan Long Calendar?

The Mayans were a tribe of Native Central Americans. When the Spanish invaded in the 16th century, they burned all but four of the Mayan scrolls. They were brought back to Europe and studied. One of these scrolls was the current Mayan Long Calendar. There may have been another Long Calendar that continued after the one we have ended. But the overly religious Spanish burned it.
