Great video, thanks.
Being 300 years in the past is quite an interesting theory. So, what would that mean for the Mayan calendar?

I think a more plausible theory (both of which are obviously pure speculation) is that were actually 300 yrs in the past.. check this out.
At the LatinoLA Site, there is a report of the announcement (circa 2000 AD) by the Mayan elder, Don Alejandro Cirilo Pérez Oxlaj, which includes the following: "...on Dec. 20, 2012, Mother Earth will pass inside the center of a magnetic axis and that it may be darkened with a great cloud for 60 to 70 hours and that because of environmental degradation, she may not be strong enough to survive the effects. "It will enter another age, but when it does, there will be great and serious events. Earthquakes, maremotos (tsunamis), floods, volcanic eruptions and great illness on the planet Earth. Few survivors will be left." Don Alejandro has been sent as a messenger from a council of elders to warn the world that we must change the way we live and take care of Earth. We hope his message resonates with people of all faiths and beliefs."

The Mayans described the end of the long count as the end of the world as we know it.
No. The Mayans described the end of the current b'ak'tun and the start of the next b'ak'tun as, er, the end of one b'ak'tun and the start of a new one.
