Has anyone ever thought, the reason the Mayan calender stopped on the date it did, is because the simply ran out of room on that particular rock?

In fact the Gregorian calendar is always off target and the elite function in terms of 30 day lunar cycles.
March is the first real month of every year.
September = Heptagon = 7 sided
October = Octagon = 8 sided
November = Nonagon = 9 sided
December = Decagon = 10 sided
Then there is a Russian mathematician (Anatoly Fomenko) that states that the Dark Ages never even happened which means this year is roughly 998 AD.
Romans used to put i before the year so i666 was 1666 when the devil went Twisted Fire Starter on Baker Street in London.

Aparently recently someone did their math:
The baktun is 144,000 days.There are 13 baktuns in the Mayan Calendar.
144,000 days x 13 baktuns = 1,872,000 solar days. Now the Gregorian calendar solar year is 365.2425
The Julian calendar solar year is 365.25 The Haab Mayan calendar solar year is 3651,872,000 days/365.2425 (Gregorian solar year) = 5125.36 years 1,872,000 days/365.25 (Julian solar year) = 5125.256 years and then here is the big difference….1,872,000 days/365 (Haab solar year) = 5128.76 years. Subtract 5128.76 years (Haab) from 5125.256 years (Julian) =READY……..
=3.504 year difference and that makes 1260 days.
This would mean that Dec 8th, 2012 (Julian calendar) is actually May 21st, 2016 (Mayan Haab calendar). Dec. 8th, 2012 plus 1260 days = 5/21/2016or Dec. 21st, 2012 (Gregorian) is actually June 3rd, 2016 (Mayan Haab calendar). Dec. 21st, 2012 plus 1260 days = June 3, 2016
They are not counting the days by true Mayan Haab 365 solar days but instead using the Gregorian and Julian solar days to arrive to the dates of Dec. 8th, 2012 (Julian) and Dec. 21st, 2012 (Gregorian) which shouldn’t have been done this way!
You guys ar wcomed to find any reliable sources. Apparently this was discovered recently. So we have just 2 more days
