December 21st 2012 is the end of the 13th B'ak'tun going on to the start of the 14th. This is the actual date.
The idea it's the wrong date due to differences with our calender or even the leap year argument is irrelevant to the long count calendar system,
because it's not based on solar years, it's simply based upon math.
I can't remember where i got this from. So forgive me but here..
"What does 0.0.0.0.0 (the Long Count "beginning" point) equal in the Gregorian calendar? When this question is answered, archeological inscriptions
can be put into their proper historical context and the end date of the 13-baktun cycle can be calculated. After years of considering data from varied
fields such as astronomy, ethnography, archeology and iconography, J. Eric S. Thompson determined that 0.0.0.0.0 correponded to the Julian date
584283, which equals August 11th, 3114 B.C. in our Gregorian calendar. This means that the end date of 188.8.131.52.0, some 5125 years later, is December
21st, 2012 A.D" - (Remember these aren't my words, just info i have)
Now, don't get me wrong. This date is probably no more likely to be the end of the world as tomorrow is. But when people get the Calenders mixed up
and say "oh but they didn't use our calender system" "they didn't account for leap years" Or "The Mayan date is not the 21st December. It is just
another date in the Gregorian calendar" This is ridiculous. This of course may not be 100% accurate (things rarely are) but it's the best and most
probable and logical answer they have gained from years of research. So to just turn that upside down and say 'it's not even the 21st' is not really
The date is correct. It's just the meaning of the date that seems to be splitting this place in 2,3,4 or even more sections who think things from
NOTHING to EVERYTHING will happen on that date. You name it, people have probably suggested it.
I'll see ATS and the 22nd (i hope, nothings ever certain in life) and i hope i don't see you, or anyone else for that matter giving the big "i told
you so" because it will be pointless and an unnecessary attempt to cause an argument.
