You're right, it makes no sense at all. The Mayans still exist and still use their calendar in parts of Guatemala. They don't think anything special is going to happen in 2012.
The ancient Mayan reckoned their chronology from a fixed-point corresponding to the end of the preceding great cycle of thirteen bak'tuns (a period of approximately 5,128 solar years.)
Why would the Mayans design a calendar that was based off a series of stars
that will no longer be able to be used in 2012?
