Come on guy. You notice nothing un-right in the world today? Big changes? What rock you living under, maybe I can come stick my head under it, I might be releived of much unsettling global unrest and changes occuring as well.
"What this text shows us is that in times of crisis, the ancient Maya used their calendar to promote continuity and stability rather than predict apocalypse," Canuto said.
Now your talking. I can totally agree with that. However, did those era's not come with great destruction and demise? Oh, yes they also eventualized into good times, but we appear to be on the front end of the destruction. I'm sure you are wise enough to see this? But maybe you aren't able?

Well thats usually what this 'end date' of the Mayan Clander eventually leads too.
Sorry, but you are incorrect. Maybe based on what you've read, but that is not the meaning.
The Mayans never said anything about the end of the world. It was, and always has been, about CHANGE.
Their beliefs stem from cycles that occur in relation to astronomical events, and the changes that they bring when they occur. Those astronomical events happen in predictable cycles over many hundreds and thousands of years.
I would say that we're seeing some real changes in the world as we speak, wouldn't you?
