Why do people continue to try to tie the Long Count in to all of these "prophecies?" 2012 came and went. Move on. Find some other culture whose
traditions you can butcher into "proof" of doomsday. The Long Count was never supposed to end with the 13th baktun and there were never any
prophecies associated with it. In this case, the author of this piece clearly has no idea how the GMT correlation was constructed. It's not just
simply counting. There was a lot of work that went into correlating events (such as astronomical) that were witnessed by the Mayans and those that
used the Gregorian calendar. We also have documents that use both dating methods. There's also the fact that the Long Count starts on August 11, 3114
BCE, not 3113 BCE. As a result, if the author used the correct starting date, they would still get 2012. This is once again just a bunch of hokum
regarding claims involving the Long Count.
