Funny how people poke fun at others for assuming they know with certainty of what's to come and then also do so themselves. How does it feel to Rick Roll yourself?

The claims of 2012 are so many and so varied it is hard to keep track of what it is all about. The initial seeds of the claim came from New Age authors that noticed that a date from ancient times was about to come about. This date comes from the long count calendar of the Mayans. That calendar was no longer being used by the time of Columbus. It had fallen out of use a long time before that meeting of the New and Old worlds. Now it is being rejuvenated and sugar coated with all sorts of recent made up tales that are all modern fakes.
