I came across a site that explains in great detail about the ancient Mayans and 2012. I thought it was very insteresting to read.

I'm wondering what other people think about the explantion according to this site. I'm kind of hoping myself that there will be some sort of new era humanity enters into, or some kind of cosmic event that I can see that I lived through and witnessed.

No Doomsday in 2012

thats exactly what i was wondering, i think the theory of our existance coming to an end is too negative. we can't always live in fear of the human race ending. i do believe we will come into a new existance on this planet whether it be in a moral sence or a technological and observent way. either way i think all of what we "know" will be crumpled up and tossed in the waste basket.

ATS is always a constant source of amusement.

Let's for a moment set aside the Mayan Calendar and all "Doomsday Prophesies", Biblical and otherwise; let's forget about the rule of "Follow The Money" and ignore what governemtns around the world have been doing. Let us for a moment be a Typical American and believe what our government and the news media tell us is true.

Now, do you feel safer? Does all that is and has been going on around you, the real estate crash; the banking failures; the fact that America has been turned into a nation of consumers that don't make much of anything anymore and instead of "Family Farms" the majority of agriculture is owned and run by large multinational companies, does this worry you? How about the fact that every man woman and child owes $75, 000 to pay off the national debt or maybe the fact that we have more people in prisons than any nation on the planet or maybe it makes you feel a little concerned that our constitution has been gutted or that our US Dollar is crashing and countries like China hold most of the paper on your homes, tpo say nothing of how America has been being bouight by foreigners for some time now. Maybe that B of A Credit Card you have that says your interest rate can go to 29% is they decide you have violated the terms of credit..maybe that will worry you typial types.

Okay, let's say that you still feel good about America and your way of life and the way of life for your children, let's say gay marriage is fine, that pornography being everywhere is fine, that raiding a compound and hauling off children because the gov says so..maybe this is "Your America...maybe you really are doing just fine..maybe because "Them Is You".

There are none so blind as those who will not see but please " Be Happy", you weren't going to do much anyway.

To quote my late and most favorite comedian George Carlin, the wealthy elite are a big club and you ain't in it but go ahead, believe you are and be the fodder most of us think you are.

you know what? We're not really in the year 2008. This is just a point of view. Historians pointed mistakes in old calendars, when the Gregorian Monks created it, placing Jesus in the Year 0. It's okay, but looks like they were a few years away, so we could be already in 2012, or back in 2004. ( i heard 4 years or something, can anybody confirm that? )

I'm not aware that there ever was a year "0" and that it in fact goes from 1 B.C. to 1 A.D. as in "first year". When the Gregorian calendar was adopted in 1582 the date was advanced by 10 days in order to make up for the accumulated inaccuracy of having a leap year every four years in the Julian calendar that it replaced (used since 45 B.C. and introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C.).

Aloysius Lilius devised the Gregorian calendar and Pope Gregory XIII decreed it. Not sure where the Monks were involved or how four years were dropped or added.

Today is apparently July 13, 2008 in the Julian calendar.

I don't feel like sourcing since Google is your friend there.

Apparently the original Jewish calendar (if were going to use dates and times to interpret prophecies using the Bible) actually had only 360 days. It was the Romans that changed it to 365.

So..based on that, were actually in the year 2010 or something (perhaps someone can work it out)..
