When you use words like "supposed" then you lose all credibility and have no right to have 100% proof in your title.
this is another example of moving the goal posts for the apocalyptic end date. What happens when the calendar ends you ask. you get a free one in the mail and it starts over. Not entirely unlike all the threads about the END TIMES......... pceedit on 4-11-2012 by ThoughtIsMadness because: (no reason given)

Yes there is a spiritual awakening occuring on our planet, yes, energies are increasing in frequency... But does it seem like they have increased enough to make a big difference... no, not yet. Give them another 75 years, and I can totally see change happening. It feels to premature for 2012 to be the time of a great shift... humanity isn't desperate enough yet, we are too materialistic and are only just waking up to that fact. 75 years from now is when a major change will be needed. It makes more sense to me, and the math proves it.

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
The mean tropical year, as of January 1, 2000 was 365.2421897 or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, 45.19 seconds. This changes slowly; an expression suitable for calculating the length in days for the distant past is 365.2421896698 − 6.15359×10^−6T − 7.29×10^−10T^2 + 2.64×10^−10T^3
The Long Count calendar identifies a date by counting the number of days from the Mayan creation date 4 Ahaw, 8 Kumk'u (August 11, 3114 BC in the proleptic Gregorian calendar or September 6 in the Julian calendar). But instead of using a base-10 (decimal) scheme like Western numbering, the Long Count days were tallied in a modified base-20 scheme. Thus 0.0.0.1.5 is equal to 25, and 0.0.0.2.0 is equal to 40. As the winal unit resets after only counting to 18, the Long Count consistently uses base-20 only if the tun is considered the primary unit of measurement, not the k'in; with the k'in and winal units being the number of days in the tun. The Long Count 0.0.1.0.0 represents 360 days, rather than the 400 in a purely base-20 (vigesimal) count.
