liveforever, interesting question.
There are many books which go on about Mayan Timelines. A good place to start, on many of these issues is: wikipedia. It has a lot of information on the Mayan Civilization in a very easy form. It'll save you a lot of money as well on the buying of books.
This would be the main article about it all. The Mayan's used a system, where they had different calenders. It was based on hours, days, weeks, years, decades and so on and so fourth. They also had a system where they split up "ages" into certain amounts of years. This is what ends in 2012.
They have no written texts about anything bad happening. It's just the end of another age and is very much like a calender company. They don't make calenders for 2050 yet, doesn't mean the World ends then.

Also on that day, the planets will be lined up exactly in a straight line. Scientists aren't sure what that means or what will happen.

From what i understand which is not much, is that the long count calendar of the mayans has been "counting" the last four ages which last about 26,000 years each.
A very significant astronimical event that happens every 26000 years (what are the odds??) where the sun or earth not sure will move closer to the center of our galaxy,
WHICH in result will change our planets axis slightly.
