Because Nostradamus was right when the world ended in 1999, and everyone else was right when the world ended in 2000.
Now it looks like everyone is going to be *right* again when the world ends in 2012.

The Mayans were not prophets; they were not even able to predict their own cultural extinction. They were great mathematicians and accomplished sky watchers, but they were also a brutally violent tribal people with a primitive understanding of natural phenomena, subscribing to archaic beliefs and the barbaric practices of blood-letting and human sacrifice.Accepting the Mayan 2012 prophecy logically requires acceptance of the following theories: our sun is a god; the sun is powered by the blood of human sacrifice; the creation moment occurred at 3114 B.C. (despite all evidence that it happened much earlier); and the visual alignment of stars has some significance for everyday human life.

With Mayan mythology teaching that our sun is a god and the Milky Way is the gateway to life and death, the Mayans concluded that this intersection in the past must have been the moment of creation. Mayan hieroglyphs seem to indicate that they believed the next intersection in 2012 would be some sort of end and a new beginning of a cycle. The Mayans also believed that the blood of human sacrifices was what powered the sun and gave it life.
All the so-called “Mayan prophecies of 2012” are nothing more than wildly speculative extrapolations, which are based on the yet uncertain interpretations by scholars of Mayan hieroglyphs. However, the truth is that apart from the astrological convergence, there is little indication that the Mayans prophesied anything specific regarding the events of this distant future.

This wobbling rotation causes the stars’ patterns of movement to drift gradually in the sky (called “precession”) in a 5,125-year cycle. The Mayans also discovered that once every cycle the dark band at the center of the Milky Way (called the Galactic Equator) intersects with the Elliptical (the plane of the sun’s movement across the sky).

During that year, the sun reaches its solstice (a brief moment when the sun’s position in the sky is at its greatest angular distance on the other side of the equatorial plane from the observer) on December 21 for the Northern Hemisphere and June 21 for the Southern Hemisphere. That year, the solstice occurs at the moment of the conjunction of the Galactic Equator with the Milky Way. The year this occurs (in relation to our Gregorian calendar) is A.D. 2012, and happened last on August 11, 3114 B.C.

Meso-American star charting started around 680 B.C. by the Olmec civilization who were recording astrological patterns in the sky and eventually shared this information with the Mayans. The Mayans had a long history of tracking the winter solstice (probably for planting crops) and creating calendars (at least 17 that we know of). At some point, they developed the belief that our sun is a god and that the Milky Way, called the “Sacred Tree,” was a gateway to the afterlife. After learning from the Olmecs, they began keeping records of the stars’ patterns of movement and continued to do so for the next 200-300 years. The Mayans then developed their own calendar (The Long Count) ca. 355 B.C.
They were able to use their observations and mathematical prowess to calculate the future movements of stars across the sky. The result was that the Mayans discovered the effect of the earth’s wobbling as it spins on its axis

The Mayan calender is actually 7885 years long, so it has rolled over a few times since we`ve been around. As for the end of the world? The same as my feelings on missing this movie.

mikhaillost - my sentiments exactly. They couldn`t have made an infinite calendar. I think they just decided to end there, let the civilisation go on for another few millennia and then, if required, do some more on the calendar.

Hell, my 2008 calendar is going to run out at the end of the year? Is the world going to end? No, I just buy a new one for 2009!

@ Dakkar:
I partially agree with you, just some snob-ass director looking to make some money off something as well-known and ancient as the 2012 theory. Though I dis agree about the conspiracy part; for one, 2012 is far, far more than just some conspiracy, it dates back as far as sentient humans date, starting with the mayans. Now, after all these years people are finding that ancient civilizations have records and documents all predicting the end of the world, 2012. And no, I didnt just search Google for 2012, this is based on the knowledge I`ve gained through either personal study or reliable sources. Not simply a conspiracy.

Heh, you`re on the right track Pat. Its undeniable that this guy got rich after the Day After Tomorrow, despite the low theatric quality of the film. However, it was filled with shock quality, and if there is one thing humans like it is to be shocked.

So this d-bag read some conspiracies from teh intranet professors and said, "Hey! I can make another disaster film and make even more money!" Can`t blame the guy though, I think my ethics would lose if I had the ability to make a 2012 movie. There will be three, but the first is guaranteed to line his coffers.

Not only has science debunked every 2012 myth, those in the study of calendars have explained the true meaning of this ending of the Mayan calender, as I`m sure it has already been mentioned here.

And Lion, a shift in the Earth`s polarity would have no effect on the gravitational field. Gravity is solely mass dependent, and is not influenced by magnetic fields.

> it would take roughly 4 billion cubic kilometers of water more than exists on the planet to flood the earth. Just not physically or mathematically feasible

You just need to learn to think laterally, there are other ways to flood the Earth than adding more water. For example, if the Earth`s gravity was halved, water would be half as dense, and therefore sea level would be about 2.4 MILES higher than it currently is - covering most of the land but not all. And we`re due for another polarity flip of the earth`s magnetic field sometime in the next 5,000 years, which would cause vast shifts in gravity...

2012 is not so much the end of the mayan calendar, as it is the start of the mayan calendar again - which I guess could have a mixed meaning, especially since they don`t really know how the mayans felt about it anyway.
The movie looks like it might be good though, I love the oceans rising effect.

1) What I would like to know is what made the Mayans so smart about this? A bunch of nude savages in Central America made a calendar and decided to stop at 2012? Did you ever stop to think that maybe they ran out of room on the calendar or something?

2) The "mayan prophecy" doesn`t actually refer to doomsday on 2012, it refers to an awakening. At least to my knowledge.

3) Regardless, there WILL be a wave a chaos across the world, as whole flocks of uneducated inbreds panic and kill themselves in mass suicides. Good riddance; thanks for cleansing the gene pool.
