I saw nice documentary on NGC about 2012 followed by documentary of mass excintions and I learned some things.
2012 is not predicted only by mayans
2012 is not only an end of mayan calendar, but it´s also "end of world" in mayan visions.
In that documentary was told that on dec. 21 2012 will sun align with galactic plane and it will be visible from theirs temples etc.
So I realised that I can confirm that with my astronomical application called"stellarium".
I set position Peru - Lima, and set three dates 1012 , 2012, 3012 and here is what I got.
From this is apparent that aligment happens around 2012 +- 50 years, but it can really be exactly on 21. dec 2012.
Here is also picture of that "floods doomsday" by mayans
"Page 74. of the Dresden Codex, depicting a great flood, flowing from mouth of celestial dragon. This represents the Central American notion of
"The Dresden Codex contains astronomical tables of outstanding accuracy. Contained in the codex are almanacs, astronomical and astrological tables,
and religious references.The specific god references have to do with a 260 day ritual count divided up in several ways.The Dresden Codex contains
predictions for agriculture favorable timing. It has information on rainy seasons, floods, illness and medicine. It also seems to show conjunctions of
constellations, planets and the Moon. It is most famous for its Venus table." (quotations from the Wikipedia article Dresden Codex, accessed
