The question that has lurked the minds of many for a very long time now: Will the world end about a year from now, on December 21st, 2012? Apparently the Mayan calendar's end date is December 21st, 2012, which is one of the reasons why some people think the end is on that day. Other reasons include Jesus, judgement day, etc.

Quote by Wikipedia
December 2012 marks the conclusion of a b'ak'tun—a time period in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar which was used in Central America prior to the arrival of Europeans. Though the Long Count was most likely invented by the Olmec,[9] it has become closely associated with the Maya civilization, whose classic period lasted from 250 to 900 AD.[10] The writing system of the classic Maya has been substantially deciphered,[11] meaning that a corpus of their written and inscribed material has survived from before the European conquest.

Unlike the 52-year Calendar Round still used today among the Maya, the Long Count was linear rather than cyclical, and kept time roughly in units of 20: 20 days made a uinal, 18 uinals (360 days) made a tun, 20 tuns made a k'atun, and 20 k'atuns (144,000 days or roughly 394 years) made up a b'ak'tun. Thus, the Mayan date of 8.3.2.10.15 represents 8 b'ak'tuns, 3 k'atuns, 2 tuns, 10 uinals and 15 days.[12][13]


This video also explains it well.

So pit, do you think the world will end on this day?

No one actually believes this. We're all being duped into thinking that the idea has a large following but very few people see it as more than a joke. Now never post a thread about it again.
i don't know why i feel so dry

I don't know much about Mayans, but they probably stopped the calendar because they figured you can only go so far on a calendar before it get ridiculous.

As for the end of the world, it may mark the beginning of the end of the world as people will become paranoid and start having end of the world parties and lots of unprotected sex. This will lead to a major increase in the world's population and resources will become scarce and the Earth will not be able to sustain a large population.

That's my two cents.

Absolutely not.


If I recall, the myth was started by someone on the internet back in 96' who was thought to have been communicating with alien life forms.

Anyone who sincerely answers yes is an absolute moron. I guarantee that not 2 days has passed after this one when people have already ''discovered'' a new date.

Aliens could come, and teach us about love and friendship. This planet needs more of it honeslty.

No. My belief is that in order for the Mayans to be able to mark down a specific thing on a calendar they must have seen that thing happen. If they lived through this then I'm pretty sure that we will too.

Yeah I think it is gonna end. The reason the mayans stopped making calenders is because of the prophecy of Techutititlon, who is said to have predicted a great storm that would swallow up our world whole.
