first, you're not even in winter, the mayans were in central america, above the equator.
so their winter solstice is 5:12 am local time, or 6:12 am (eastern standard time, new york, etc.).
the winter solstice is when the earth is farthest away from the sun. it has nothing to do with time, but distance.
so it doesn't matter where you are in the world, the earth is still not the farthest away from the sun.
and third, why would the mayans know when the earth is going to end. read a little about their history and they are one of the most messed up
civilizations to grace God's green earth.
for example, a coconut could fall off a tree and hit a mayan in the head and 15 mins later their would be an alter for that coconut and human
sacrifices to it and blood letting.
