    Thanks for ruining my dream. It`s not so much that i hate people, it`s sort of a indifference. Yes I know I`d die to but I`m one of those guys that enjoys the whole boat going down.

    2012 is the year the alien blockade of earth is lifted and they can come back and check on the development of their created beings.

    So they found something that shows anyone believing the mayans predicted the end of the world are idiots. I think @darkmagic sums it up nicely.

    This whole thing is so stupid. So there is a Mayan calendar that ends on 12-21-12. So what? We have a calendar that ends on 12/31/12. What happens after that? It starts over at 1/1/13! The Mayan calendar does the same exact thing -- starts over the next day! Idiotic.

    Mayan prophecy: The world won`t end, as a newfound calendar goes on and on and on...
    Damn. I guess this means I`m going to have to start saving for my retirement.

    You guys know that the end of the Mayan calender has already passed, right? Leap year was first established by Cesar in 45 BC. That means we`ve added an extra 514 days since the 45 BC and the Mayan calender was written much earlier and couldn`t have taken leap year into account. That means that the end of their calender has long been passed. Are we dead? Did the planet radically change from stars aligning?

    @Gerry1of1

    That`s basically it.
    If you ask a mayan about the end of the world, he`d just laugh at you, and probably steal your wallet, depending on what kind of neighborhood it is.

    but he equated that with the odometer on a car rolling over from 99,999 miles to zero: "You go, `Yay,` but the car just doesn`t disappear."

    Best part of the article.

    "Three mysterious figures wearing black also march across the wall. One of them is named “older brother obsidian.” Mayan experts have no idea whom these mysterious figures might represent. "

    Observers?

    I do really like this guy, but his perma-smile disturbs me a little. Also, I think his pedagogy can get a little muttled on some occasions, too abstract or too unrelated to really hit home. He is cool, though. He`s one of the next science super-stars like C. Sagan was and Einstein, but, of course, not on quite the same level as those two.

    VV @zeebeedee: No! You cannot have your pogostick back!

    @AvatarJohn: Not 1/1/13, but the new number (whatever it is) for the First Day of the 5th Cycle. The Mayans count down to zero (or is it one? lolz, idk!) so the "first day" is a really big number...

    When the 4th Cycle Ends (On 12/21/12) Either:
    #1 A Mayan God will return to Earth, personally!
    This is BAD! They`re all bloodthirsty maniacs!
    #2 An Event causes the destruction of the 4th world, from which the 5th world will begin anew!
    #3 An event which later will become known as the defining event for the 5th world will happen. Could be bad, might be good!
    #4 The 5th Cycle will start... and not much else!

    The calendar ended because Mayan republicans killed the funding.

    theres a good possibility these things might still happen, because of that date, not just coincidentally on that date

    The Mayan calendar didn`t account for leap year, so if you do the math, the world should have ended 8.2 months ago. Can everyone get over it now?

    I think there is something unsettling about the fact that discounting a theory based on alleged, ancient, Mayan prophecies predicting that the world will end on a specific date requires us to find other, ancient, Mayan artifacts, which show that they did not, in fact, believe the world would end on that date.

    The Mayan calendar didn`t account for leap year
    @TheShgn2 & @Justin9235: UGH!
    The Mayan calender is actually MORE accurate than ours. There are no "leap years" because it simply counts the days until the END of the cycle!
    It has accurately predicted lunar and solar eclipses going back (and foreward in theory) over 5,00 YEARS! Something Our calender would not do as accurately.
    No leap years, READ A BOOK! Or at least Wiki...
