In Maya cosmology, their Time & their calendar began in 3114BCE,
(the beginnings of 'civilization' in Eur-Asia began ~7,000BCE,
with peoples like the Sumerians & Akkadians et al.)
as I see it, the Maya Calendar is only a subset of human history,
Proof exists there was approximately +4,000 years of recorded human history before the Maya Calendar creation.
~furthermore, it is thought the Maya Calendar was originated
sometime between 300bce-500ce when it became a guideline for
daily living for the Maya population until their demise...~
with this information to consider...
it is not reasonable to think that all humankind's destiny is contained
in the 5,126 years of the Maya Calendar...

I know of over 200 failed EOTW predictions, Heck, Ive lived through a handful, and its NOT WORTH THE WORRY PEOPLE, chill out, love your family and
friends and if its does come to pass. your gone, but you can go at any time....
Christians in J.C's time belived the end of the world was coming in THEIR lifetime and that he would come and save them. In Matthew 24:34, JC is
recorded as saying: "...This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." Since the life expectancy in those days was little over
30 years, JC predicted his second coming sometime during the 1st century CE.
Some other famous EOTW moments...
1832: Joseph Smith (1805-1844) was the founder of the Church of Christ
1794:Charles Wesley, one of the founders of Methodism, thought Doomsday would be in this year.
1914, 1915, 1918, 1920, 1925, 1941, 1975 and 1994, etc. pretty much covers how many times the Jehova witnesses have predicted it.
1982: Astronomers John Gribben & Setphen Plagemann predicted the "Jupiter Effect" in 1974
I'm not even going there with Y2K (cost my company a dang fortune for nothing, what a joke)
and finally one of my personal favourites....
2012: Michael Drosnin, author of "The Bible Code,"
