The Mayan calendar began with the Fifth Great Cycle in 3114 BC and will end on 21 December 2012 AD. The Hindu Kali Yuga calendar began on 18 February 3102 B.C. There is only a difference of 12 years between the Hindu's beginning of the Kali Yuga and the Mayan's beginning of the Fifth Great Cycle.

The December 24, 2011 date originates in 1966 with Michael Coe's book The Maya. By 1980, when the second edition of the book was published, he had abandoned this date and by 1984, when the third edition came out, he settled on the date he continues to support to this day, December 23, 2012. As far as I know there are no researchers that support Coe's original date. Correlations, such as the GMT, simply have a lot more data backing them.

brilliant

but seriously how would a sci-fi actor and a sci-fi show narrator know when the world is going to end!?!?..... unless they really do work on a interstellar ship & tell stories from alternate dimensions then were pretty fooked.

Repr Long Count Days ~ solar years
0.0.0.0.1 1 k'in 1 1/365
0.0.0.1.0 1 winal = 20 k'in 20 0.055
0.0.1.0.0 1 tun = 18 winal 360 0.986
0.1.0.0.0 1 k'atun = 20 tun 7,200 19.71
1.0.0.0.0 1 b'ak'tun = 20 k'atun 144,000 394.3 < equates to: 1,872,000 Days = 5,125.9 years


you can calculate the length (in actual days) of a 13 baktun Long Count, i quickly did in bold above



now the thing is that just when is the start date or end date is determined...
i think modern interpreters say that the Maya Long Count ends in Mid Winter, shortest day of the year, or even perhaps when the Milky Way dark rift is in the window of observation as rising on the Winter Solstice...
the 'window' of the rift in the Winter Equinox is about 19 years long... so that should satisfy the astronomical &/or cosmic event that would be appropriate for a significant end date event.




When did the Long Count Start?

Logically, the first date in the Long Count should be 0.0.0.0.0, but as the baktun (the first component) are numbered from 1 to 13 rather than 0 to 12, this first date is actually written 13.0.0.0.0.

The authorities disagree on what 13.0.0.0.0 corresponds to in our calendar. I have come across three possible equivalences:
13.0.0.0.0 = 8 Sep 3114 BC (Julian) = 13 Aug 3114 BC (Gregorian)
13.0.0.0.0 = 6 Sep 3114 BC (Julian) = 11 Aug 3114 BC (Gregorian)
13.0.0.0.0 = 11 Nov 3374 BC (Julian) = 15 Oct 3374 BC (Gregorian)

Assuming one of the first two equivalences, the Long Count will again reach 13.0.0.0.0 on 21 or 23 December AD 2012 - a not too distant future.

keep in mind the 'long count' began before the Maya came to prominence in (pre-columbian) Central America
the long-count was likely adopted from the ancient Olemec time keepers.. & probably incorporated into Maya culture around 300-200BCE...and handed down for over 1,200 years...
when the Spanish came & destroyed the culture & civilization in the 1500s
(coincidently the seer Nostradamus was around in the 1550s just as the Maya genocide was underway)

Hey guys, just out of curiosity, wouldnt the Mayan calendar have to end some time? Meaning they stopped writing at some point.

Mayan Chief: Keep writing the days down.

Writer: How long you want me to sit here writing these damn days down? Go screw yourself, i quit.

Chief: OK, forget it. Calendar is over.

It's the end of a cycle of more than 5 thousand years in the Mayan calendar. That's why people are so nervous. 5 thousand years is a lot of time.

No it's not. If it were a cycle why are there now Classic period examples of the Long Count that end after the 13th baktun? Why are there many examples of Long Counts that extend past the 13th baktun, some going all the way up to piktuns? Why is the only place where this 13 baktun cycle is mentioned is a manuscript from the post-Columbian era that has been influenced by Christian beliefs? The Long Count is simply a count of days and was used primarily in the same way we use years in our own calendar system.
