Firt of all you cannot compare the Y2K conspiracy to the 2012 conspiracy. The Y2K conspiracy was based on our own technology and the whole resetting the date back to 1900 in our computer systems. How that was supposed to "end the world" I have no idea and I personally thought it was such bull. I work in the IT industry and was on call in NZ for the rollover and as I suspected absolutely nothing happened other than alot of technology companies made a ton of cash.
2012 is a date based on not only Mayan prophecies, but also the I-Ching prdictions, Hopie Indian prophecies, Sumerian prophesies, Nostradamus just to name a few. Also should mention the galactic allignment and pole shift theories. So to compare this to Y2K is absolutely absurd.
You need to look further than just the Mayan prediction. Just look at the state of the world right now and tell me it doesnt look bleek. The entire middle east is ready to implode into a major war and most likely will be devastating. Financial meltdown worldwide. Extreme weather (major earthquakes, tsunam's, typhoons, hurricanes etc etc). Swine flu and vaccination propoganda. Civil unrest in the USA ( i suspect a civil war is not that far off).
Maybe if you only watched the discovery or history channels documentaries on 2012 I could understand the skeptisism, but once you start connecting the dots it is alot bigger than just the Mayan calendar. I am still not fully convinced on the Mayan Calendar for the reasons you suggest, but to compare this to Y2K is ridiculous.

My big question is, "What in the world are we all basing this 2012 thing on anyway?" The Mayan calander simply stops, there is no indication of the world ending...even the modernday Mayan leaders think this is just a trumpt up load of over hyped nonsense.
