The end of the Mayan Long Count was marked by a celebration, pretty much an ushering into a new era of consciousness.

There isn't much evidence that is conclusive proof of a doomsday event on that date.
At any rate tho maybe the Mayans were doing it just to mess with people of the future? "Hey let's make a date for xxx amount of years a head just to mess with future generations"
No one ever said the mayans didn't have a sense of humor right ?
Well.. I definitely see it as the end of an age also. In a way, a have a mixture of expectation and hope, that global systems like economics and governments will collapse and we'll have to start over, hopefully with new ideas instead of trying the same stuff that doesn't work over and over again...

Care to elaborate on that?
Could 2012 be a new beginning?
The Mayans predicted the end of an age. Is the end of this age a requisite to start another? I would think so.
I would think it requires a change in thinking, something along the lines that we no longer need to be greedy, that we need to share resources.
