You tell people to do research yet you clearly demonstrate that your own research comes from biased sources that are hardly experts. First, the
calendar system is not more accurate than ours. Their solar calendar only had 365 days. As a result, over time, their months would no longer match up
with the season they were supposed to fall in and the calendar had to be recalibrated.
They also made no predictions regarding 18.104.22.168.0. There is a single reference and it had to do with a religious ceremony that would occur in the
city of Tortuguero. They also have nothing to say about the Fifth Sun. To them there was no such thing. They also didn't separate ages by Suns. They
did it by Creations. We are the fourth creation and the one that gods were satisfied with. As a result we are the last creation and they make no
indication that we will ever end. The Fifth Sun prophecy comes from the Aztec but they placed no time constraints on each Sun and they also did not
use the Long Count.
The Long Count also does not match up with the end of Kali Yuga. The only people claiming this are New Agers. Kali Yuga began on January 23, 3102 BC
when Krishna left Earth and will last for 432,000 years. As for the claims regarding the Christian Apocalypse considering the prophecy is composed of
vague symbolism and is attached to no date I don't see how you can say it corresponds to the Long Count. There's a reason why every year someone
says we are entering the Apocalypse. It's because the language of the Book of Revelations is so nebulous and ambiguous that you can turn anything you
want into signs of the Apocalypse.
I would also like to point out that the Long Count does not end/repeat on 22.214.171.124.0. As I mentioned above there is only a single reference to this
date. On the other hand we have a number of dates that extend beyond 126.96.36.199.0 such as those at Palenque that go beyond 188.8.131.52.0.0. We can also look
at Coba Stela 1 and see that the Maya actually believed the universe to be trillions of years old and that the calendar never started over during this
