It looks like new Mayan Calendars were found that go way beyond the year 2012, proving that the Mayans did not believe that the world would end in 2012.

Let me say, though, that I never interpreted the original calendar this way, nor do I think it was ever supposed to be interpreted to mean, "the end of the world in 2012". The calendar was supposed to indicate the end of an age, or cycle, and the beginning of a new one. I really don't understand how so many people could interpret that to mean, "the end of the world".

Oh for real? I looked in the 2012 forum and didn't see anything. I was surprised too because I was expecting 20 threads.

Nice to hear, but I don't think a new calendar was needed. There were old calendars that said the world won't end in 2012 too!

That's right. The calendar was very similar to clocks we use for seconds, minutes, hours. Insted, decades, centuries, millennia. When a clock gets to 12 oclock it doesn't stop or self destruct unless it has a bomb attached.

Hello Smith, I think that there are few people who believe that this is the year that the world passes away. Personally I believe it's more likely to be "the beginning of woes". Far be it from me to say that the poles are not shifting. Shock therapy for us all.

Just sounds to me like people are getting their excuses ready for when the world fails to end, yet again.

"Oh well yeah of course it wasn't going to end in 2012, see we found this even older more ancient-y tablet!"

what is of interest, is how many will flock to a doomsday article, but how few will flock to one that disproves it.
