I would like to hear other peoples thoughts!
What do you think it means, if anything? ....... and why?
Will this be the famous, TEOTWAWKI?

According to my bitter Mayan, Aztec, Inca prof in college, it doesn't really "end", but starts over.

I mean, the calender on my wall ends in October and I'm not freaking out. I'm buying a new calender.

My post from another thread:

December 21st, 2012 A.D
That's when planet X will be here, and causes the end of the long count calendar, this the Mayans knew.
TEOTWAWKI begins. and that is when TSHTF........
who knows what they will be like.....I suppose like Pharaoh's and such, likely with different gods. (time to start over again, there won't be to many survivors left to convert, after the introduction of the other planet in our solar system, it's really going to cause alot of hell on earth here, we will welcome their arrival and the technology they bring, even if we have to build their stupid pyramids.)

Oh! I'm sorry "or Hillary will win, and it's all over sooner than expected....

The heck kind of calendar ends in OCTOBER?



I'm having flashbacks to that episode of Kino's Journey where she runs into a town that thinks the world is going to end. Then when it doesn't, everybody is like "now what are we supposed to do?"

Then at the end, a bunch of idiots who ALSO think the world is going to end go and totally waste the first town because they think it will avert the apocalypse. So in a way, the world DID end for the first bunch of idiots.

S will HTF in 2012 but not because the Myans say so but because of the events that will take place in 2008 up 2012. Once it begins there is no stopping it. Prepare yourself.


I'm glad my driver license is good until January 30th 2013.

05/05/05.....Isn't that when all the planets lined up?

The Mayan calendar doesn't predict anything. It just stops. Have you ever gone for a walk and jut turned around and went home? Did that mean that you reached the end of the world and couldn't walk any farther?????

Great. So that's what the "ressurection" is all about. Dead bodies brought back by Christ as zombies who will chomp on the living. We should start several rallying points so that the Arfcom Nation can emerge from this mess.

"I pledge allegience, to flag, of the Arfcom Nation, and to the guns, which we bear- against all enemies, foreign and domestic, with emphasis on domestic-as one Nation, under God, with guns and bullets for all. Amen."

December 21st, 2012 A.D, The End of the Mayan Long Count Calendar

I have done a lot of research into this. My research leads me to believe that at the end of the Mayan Long Count, if the world doesn't end then they will call a time out and punt it away.

Actually, if I recall correctly, the Spanish arrival did match up with something in one of the other Myan calanders.

Thus, Osiris, the Bull of Egypt, will return from the dead at 22:18:13 on December 21, 2012. If these calculations can be backed up, they will have fulfilled the ancient prophecy. It will also prove that the Hall of Records is the stars. Remember one simple fact. Everything we are and everything we can know, is within the stars. That was the fundamental synoptic meaning of the Giza complex.


Wow. That makes perfect sense! I knew it!

They did figure out how to cut the beating heart out of their fellow man with a sharp rock while he was still alive in order to appease the rain God Chac. What's wrong with you?

We're working on that, and should have Volume II of the Mayan calendar out sometime late 2011.


Well, as long as it doesn't use Windows Vista we should be good.

The precessive "wobble" of Earth's axis takes 26,000 years to go full circle. Does the Mayan calendar work for that long?

Actually it's all speculation its when a few planets line up. The Aztec based their calendars off of astronomy and did not know how o predict what would happen after 2012 A.D. BAsically calendar starts all over again.

"The End of the Mayan Calendar is scheduled for December 21, 2012 (give or take a year). "

Oh now isn't that just oh so comforting. We are all gearing up for it in 2012 and when it doesn't its time to celebrate by firing off a crap load of our stockpiles of ammo just for the zombies to come for us in 2013. Won't that just bite the big one.

My great uncle was one the leading authorities in the world on the interpretation of the Mayan calendar.

He wasn't concerned.

In the simplest terms, this is like getting worked up because you saw a 2007 calendar that ended on December 31st and concluded that the calendar maker knew that's when the world was going to end. It's just the end of THAT calendar.

Obviously, a calendar. They also were doing well with astronomy, mathematics, medicine, and a developed written language. They had a complex religion. They had large cities, a road network, art and armies. The Mayan culture/empire existed for thousands of years and only ended with the arrival of the Spanish. They were a civilized, developed people. They just had a different idea of what civilized meant and developed in a very different direction then western Europe.

LOL...the Mayans are hardly extinct. In fact they are one of the largest Ethnic groups in Central America. Their original CULTURE has moved on but as a people, they are hardly extinct.

In fact, before the Conquistadors began their quest for domination Central America, large portions of the Maya that WERE living were living in a culture that had simply "taken" over ( and in poor fashion ) the temples and living quarters of much superior, prior Mayan groups. Their culture was already on the way out. The Spanish simply sped it up....REALLY REALLY QUICKLY.

I agree, they were a pretty smart race,
Where did they get this knowledge, it seems like there was a couple civilizations on earth, that were getting outside education.
