Whose idea was it to trust the ancient Manyans anyway - Didn't they have blood thirsty rituals and human sacrifice? It would seem even if they had an inkling of the truth in the early years as a society they certainly distorted any knowledge of it by the end!! And their end came because of their distorted, perversive and destructive ways -

So what we have is the supposed end of humanity when the Long Count ends up 126.96.36.199.0 right? Not quite. See, what most people dont know is that there is evidence the 5 digit Long Count is actually abbreviated. According to a monument in the ancient ruined Mayan city of Coba, there are a number of digits that exist to the left of the Baktun.
What the full Long Count will look like when the "end of humanity" is supposed to come is like this: 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.0.0.0
While it will be 220.127.116.11.0 in 2012, the full date will be more like 0.0.0.0.0.0.13.0.0.0.0
...and since 13 Baktuns takes 5200 years, doing that 13 times, and then THAT 13 times and so on....well you can see how long it'll take
Now back to watching from the shadows....
So shark, I think your saying we have longer to live right? or shorter?
How can you be sure they didn't just truncate the numbers to the right of it?
ie: 18.104.22.168.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0 ?
