Without collecting data and analyzing it really what are you arguing? You have not facts either, nothing to prove my reasoning is wrong. Personally, I agree with you in some ways I do not believe a calendar can predict future events, but I am following every avenue because I do not like to assume.
to Assume = making an ASS out of U and ME
Claiming that modern Mayans are able to provide information on the ancient Mayans better than a scholar regardless of heritage is in my humble opinion a racist comment.
I listed PhD’s, and Mayan Elder

Aldana's findings challenge the accepted Gregorian dates of all Classic Mayan historical events, as well as the end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it 2012 prophecies.
Despite the publicity generated by the 2012 date, Susan Milbrath, curator of Latin American Art and Archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History, stated that "We have no record or knowledge that [the Maya] would think the world would come to an end" in 2012. "For the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to make it to the end of a whole cycle," says Sandra Noble, executive director of the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies in Crystal River, Florida. To render December 21, 2012, as a doomsday event or moment of cosmic shifting, she says, is "a complete fabrication and a chance for a lot of people to cash in." "There will be another cycle," says E. Wyllys Andrews V, director of the Tulane University Middle American Research Institute (MARI).

Since we "theorize” the Mayan "predicted" "change" and "conscience awaking” through all their works from calendars to whatever floats your boat
Their long count clock was only matched recently by our own atomic versions.
And it's believed they acquired this long count clock from the Aztec, who inturn inherited from the much older Olmec.
I'm amazed he can't even recognize their [Mayan] accomplishments in astronomy
They knew about procession
I use his advice because he is elected by his people as the wisest elder; he has studied more than you or I about the Mayan culture. Not to include these leaders of the subject in this post is insulting to them and incomplete in my view.
A simple analogy here, if I were to research Christianity, and talk to a priest or pastor, I would have more information to complete a data set to make a theory, would you call it racist that I did this?
“The Seven Maya Prophecies are a body of prophecies passed down from generation to generation and shared by all the 33 existing Maya tribes of Guatemala, from Quiche to Tz'utujil to Q’anjobal, as well as by the Maya of Oaxaca and Chiapas, Mexico. At least three stone monuments and one of the Maya codices support the prophecies in hieroglyphs and pictures.”
Around the world, an unprecedented escalation in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions from Iceland to Indonesia, from Chile to California, continued to rattle the planet. Apparently, we don't have to wait for 2012—it's already happening.
Although it may seem that we are having more earthquakes, earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or greater have remained fairly constant throughout this century and, according to our records, have actually seemed to decrease in recent years.
Little was said about the Maya prophecies publicly until a year ago,
The next places to watch are Indonesia
