For those of you that don't understand how the Mayan Calendar works, I will break it down for you, and show you how long each cycle is and how the
year 2012 is wrong. I am getting my information from the book, The end of days by zecharia sitchin, and it makes complete sense and is mathematically
sound. I have backtracked myself, and done the math, over and over again, researching all sorts of different cycles, and I have found that the real
end day of the Mayans is not til the year 2087, just like sitchin found. I know many of you are against sitchins work, but this really has nothing to
do with him, as the math speaks for itself. Here are the cycles to the Mayan Calandar.
1 kin = 1 day
1 uinal = 1 kin x 20 = 20 days
1 tun = 1 kin x 360 = 360 days
1 ka-tun = 1 tun x 20 = 7200 days
1 bak-tun = 1 ka-tun x 20 = 144,000 days
1 pictun = 1 bak-tun x 20 = 2,880,000 days
So given that information, we know that the end of the 12th bak-tun and the start of the 13th, signifies the end of the cycle, the end date. So you
when take 144,000 and multiply it by 13, you get, 1,872,000 days.
This is where it gets tricky. As you can see, the mayans used a sexagesimal numerical system. They called one year to be 360 days. Not 365.25 as in
our current calendar. So when you take the 1,872,000 days, and you divide it by 360, you get, 5200 years. When you take the same number and you
divide it by 365.25, you get 5125 years, which doesn't make any sense because that is no longer a part of the sexagesimal system.
The start date of the Mayan calendar, is supposed to be august 11th, 3113 BC so when you take 5125 years, and go into the future, you come up with the
year 2012, right down to dec 21st. However, this is inaccurate because the math has taken two different calculation and combined them. They have
taken our current calendar year, and mixed it with the mayans sexagesimal system, how can that be accurate, when the mayan themselves weren't doing
the math with 365.25 in mind.
However, when you do the math properly, and divide 360 into 1,872,000, you get a mathmatically sound 5200 years. So when you add the 5200 onto the
3113BC, you get the year, 2087AD.... That is when the end of the calender occurs, if you are using mayan only calculations. Why would we use any
other calculations? That just doesn't make any sense. So the mayan calendar is far from over! It won't even end in most of our lifetimes. This
is something that our children will see, and hopefully it is the dawn of a new age and not the destruction of the world. I just hope we can make it
to 2087 without killing ourselves first.
The math speaks for itself. We simply made the wrong calculations, by adding our own calendar into the mix.
