For me the Mayans correctly predicted the arrival of the Spanish. That for me gives Mayan prediction the benefit of the doubt.

I love predictions as much as anyone else, but where do we draw the line on what is a prediction and what is guessing or just BS. What makes you believe in a prediction? Accuracy, Dates, Times, Generalities, Religious ties, Gut Feelings?
To me a prediction is not something that is ambiguous, predictions have to have specific dates, times, places, names, and undeniable facts. If someone makes enough claims or they are generalizing what will transpire, then with all the events, news, reports worldwide it will be easy to say: "See I predicted that".
What I would love to see is people that make predictions stop explaining away why something didn't happen.
What a Prediction needs to make it credible is the following:
1) It must contain precise dates and times.
Please everyone add to this list..... Next person #2)
