Aside from my belief that Atlantis had to have been in S.America...has anyone heard of the Mayan calendar? I hear it shows the ending of the world in 2012.

The Mayan Long Count Calendar ends December 21, 2012. What this means is a matter of opinion and conjecture.

Yep thats right although I`ve just read a book which says its actually 2013 not 2012. Not sure what to make of it.

The Mayans are one of these groups of people who believed in the cycles of the planet. At the end of each stage the world sufferes a cataclysm. I think (without) checking that we are in the sixth period and at the end of this (2012/2013) the world just ends, no more cycles.

I`m not entirely sure but I believe there are Hopi Indian Prophecys that tie in with the Mayan stuff pretty neatly I`ll have to go check


Gonna have to go look at those damn books again....

I thought it was December 24th, 2012?

I have a question.

Why did they think the world just ends? What happens to it, where does it go? Or does it recycle?
Does it cease to exist? Or just the life on it.


I'd be interesting to know where they came across this thinking. Anyone have any links.

I also heard it was supposed to end on May 4, 2004-I forget where I heard it though.

A reversal in the gravatational feild! My God, you'd think we'd see that one coming. We're getting kind of close. I really hope the Mayans forgot to carry the one.

So, we're all gonna die in 2012 or 2013.

Gee, we are not lucky. We'll not see the NWO !

The NWO is most likely the government's move to control the peoples. That way there is no mass panic, people die not knowing what hit them. There is less pain that way.


This is why I think the war is part of the NWO. Because the have to be picking up the pace. Not too many years left yet...

"Why did they think the world just ends? What happens to it, where does it go? Or does it recycle?

I think Lysergic has the right of it..

"The Mayan Long Count Calendar ends December 21, 2012. What this means is a matter of opinion and conjecture."

The calender just ends, zip thats it. Its really just opinion as to what it means, how can you really know with a long dead civilisation. People have been argueing for a long time, about what different things represent in ancient societies (with or without supporting evidence) and they are still arguing.

guess we`ll find out 2012/2013.

They probably just quit making calenders.


They realized that making calenders that far into the future might not be very profitable.


(I'm just kidding)

I was just wondering what would happen to the world according to the theory that it ends. Because it can't just end. It has to do something that either makes it uninhabitable, or the world "as we know it" changes so drastically that it might not be recognized...

The conquistadors probably took it and them, they came for gold after all didn't they?

Yeah I remeber hearing on the Discovery Channel that many Native Americans believe we're in the final cycle and a new era (end of world) thing is going to happen, I'm trying to remember which religion said the same thing, I believe it was Hindu or Buddhist...If anyone has any more information please provide links...

Cassini's correct -- we have no record of what the Mayans thought would happen. They may have left it for later generations.

For example, we don't have many calendars around for 2026... but that doesn't mean that America as a society feels that the world would end in 2025. It just means that we feel no need right now for making those calendars.

If you convert the mayan calendar system to Greagorian, for all you that dont know that s our calendar system, It becomes May of 2003. So if mayans are to be correct were all screwed. Haha.

Having read books on the Mayans I`ve never heard mention of this before. Would you care to provide a link or offer up some proof for the ignorant fools. If not I`ll just think you somewhat rude and ignorant yourself.

nice avatar by the way

No... The date the calendar ends on is Dec 21 2012 that is translated already... You don't translate a translated date...

That'd make it SUPER translated and way more acurate!


Yeah, I don't think they'd have missed that one.
