Wow, interesting how very few posters here on your thread were actually paying attention. I believe the jist of your thread was the turnabout of your
professor's position regarding 12/21/12, not whether or not anything was going to happen.
On that note, is it possible you could shoot your professor an email and just ask about the change of thought? I'd be curious as well to find out
I hadn't thought of that but an excellent idea. I just sent him an email and I will post again if he is gracious enough to respond. I also sent him a
link to this thread. Could be interesting.

I am happy to conclude this thread by sharing a reply to my email from the the good professor himself. It may raise more questions than answers but
his voice on the subject is clearly relevant and appreciated.
Chapter 12 of my most recent book, 2000 Years of Maya Literature, deals with the
2012 issue in detail. What you saw on TV was bsed on the a projection of the
Popol Vuh-s story into a future era but was not connected to 2012 as such. What
happens on December 21, 2012, in brief, is the passage into 6-digit long-count
numbers by Mayan reckoning and continues the long count dates over a span that
lasts many billions of years. Forecasts for the era that begins on 18.104.22.168.0.0
cover only the passage to 22.214.171.124.0.0, which lasts 7200 days (360 x 20).
