Stumbled onto this video randomly a few mins ago because of some other mad post, but thought it was interesting anyway. I quite like Brian Cox, but well his statements are perhaps a little inflamatory, yet i do watch his shows about space and there pretty awesome. Is he right?

I'm not entirely positive that the Mayans claimed that the world would end.

Nor am I positive that their calendar ends, indefinitely, on 2012.

I do believe, however, that we'll be going through some significant changes. (Take it as you will.)

And the calendar probably just ... you know, repeats itself.

While I imagine a lot of people on this site know who this guy is, you haven't stated anything at all about the content in this clip, nor any of your own thoughts. People on ATS generally frown upon the whole "I found a clip, what do ya think about it" sort of thing.

Having said that I think he's right; the end of the world is not in 2012. IMHO the calendar ends there because the wives of the ancient Mayan astronomers eventually realized how far into the future their husbands were calculating for their calendar and realized that there was a lot of work to be done around the house and became livid and told them all to stop their calculations and go back to grinding some more maize

Well......i understand the importance of giving a premise and all that, perhaps if i were to lay down a dissertation concerning the actual topic i may feel inclined too. But a couple of minute youtube clip?.

Im not really sure if "Brian Cox says people who think the world will end is a #ing moron", would realy have been that helpful coming from me somehow, may aswell not bother posting the video.

Brian Cox says people who think the world will end in 2012 are morons because there are fingers involved. He also happens to be wearing a red T # and is kind of driving a little too casualy for my liking!. And my feelings on the matter are he is probably right and is his usualy dashing self.

Every time I see Brian Cox in one science program or another, I always wonder if he's a 17-year-old kid who won a sweepstakes to "appear on your favorite Discovery Channel program!"

Heh... I think Cox makes inflammatory statements just to differentiate himself from the rest of the science community, not because he's particularly brilliant.

i think that had happened, i remember a few years Discovery Kids Channel or just DC had a contest, forget which though, although it stated you could be in one of the DC programs, good thing you that statement.

Dear Johnze

I had never heard of this guy Proffesor Brian Cox before.

Anyway I am not one of the ones that thinks the world will end on the 21st of December 2012.

However with the way we are going on today we might not get there yet.

I don't know who the driver is. I agree that the Haab Mayan calendar wrapping means nothing. It is no more important than seeing a lot of zeroes appear on a car odometer.

What he doesn't point out is that the Mayans did not have any prophecies associated with the end of the Haab Calendar.

Well, he does believe that things can only get better, so I guess that rules out doomsday theories for him.

Im sorry people dont like him, but his mainstream "crap"?, you mean his shows about the solar system????, i dont really understand. As for being a moron he is a particle physicist, a Royal Society research fellow, and a professor at the University of Manchester so im basicaly 100% certain he is not a moron.

The thing is, he has the good sense to keep his own personal opinion to himself and merely points out that other peoples interpretation of it is moronic, not what the actual mayans themselves might have believed.

And the ways i see it, the mayans were simply compartamentalising time the best way they knew how. Why wouldnt they really, and its pretty obvious your going to have various ages which will end and renew. What im struggling to understand is, why do people actualy put any significane on the date exacty?. as apposed to the roman, chinese or zulu calenders?
