    if the world ends I am not sure I want to be a survivor.

    but then if the Mayans were so smart where are they now? an extinct society?

    i don't think the Mayan calender is correct; however, the idiots who believe in it may cause rioting and chaos, perhaps even a societal collapse, so it's smart to be prepared.

    It's a calendar for the planet alignment. They can't even get all of the directions for the thing

    I'm in agreement about the prediction-thing: How could the Mayans predict the end of the world, when they couldn't predict the arrival of the Spainards? Pretty darn stupid, I'd say..

    All Calendars come to an end, then you go out and buy another.

    Maybe it's just doomsday for the remaining Mayans. We'll see the rest of you on the 22nd.

    The only one who knows the end game is Father God. The rest is pure speculation.

    Frankly, I think I would love the world to end on the 21st and see my Lord & Savior return. But, God's timing is not subject to what I want.

    All we can say is; "Not my will Father, but, let your will be done!"

    People have said, the Mayans predicted the coming of the spaniards. It was actually the predicted return of their god Quetzalcoatl... Montazuma mistakenly believed that was Cortez since he "fit the profile" and Cortez played into that role to conquer the Maya.) It was more like racial profiling than a prediction.

    Just goes to show how stupid the human race can be. Just because it is the completion of a cycle why does that mean the end of the world?

    12/22/2012 Will be the start of a new cycle.

    DUh!

    Who is to say these Mayan's are all that great?

    I am sure that if i looked up at the stars at night and started taking notes I too could come up with some usuless information.

    Honestly looking up at the stars changes nothing and just seems boring to me. That is why i dont do it.

    Have you even seen this Mayan calander? what does it look like? Is is a paper calander like we use today? Is it some crap carved out of stone? I what to see the dam thing since its making such a fuss. Pleae provide a pic someone if you can?

    I am amazed that anyone could possibly believe that the mayans were that intelligent. I, mean, after all, this brilliant, highly intelligent civilization didn't even understand the concept of the wheel for crying out loud. Just like Y2K. The year 2000 was not the first year of the 21st century. It was the last year of the 20th century. That alone shows just how intelligent way too many of the humans are today. NOT!!!
