HA HA, thanks for the vote of confidence buddy...........then again, that does sound kinda fun......

The Mayan calender says nothing about the end of the world. All it says is "they will come again", the Mayan were the world's first master astronomers and the builders of the most accurate calender ever devised. All astronomers know that on that date the planets line up in a way they only do once in a blue moon (not sure, like every 6,000 years?).My personal opinion is that it will probably end up being new stars or astrological features that would otherwise not be visible that show them selves during this rare alignment.

Either that or the alien's are coming back to take Tango home.....both scenarios could be equally as likely

Anyway, I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on this end date on the Mayan Calendar???

Personally, I think it will come and go like the Y2K debacle. No end of days. No world wide disaster, or the beginning of the end, etc.

Just curious what everyone's thoughts are on this.

Anyone ever given any thought that the Mayan's calendar guy just got tired of writing out their calendar, took a siesta, had a frosty beverage and said: "2012. That should be good enough for now. I'll finish it up in a few years before I retire". ???

As I explained to a few people on MSN, the Mayans were advanced enough to create herbal mixtures, like today's pot, that were able to last for decades.
Upon taking them, one of the men began creating the calendar, but their advanced drug wore off upon completion of the year 2012.
(Also explains why they played soccer with people's heads and killed the ones who don't make a goal)

Nothing is going to happen. Dec 21, 2012 is the day that the Sun will cross the Celestial Equator. Meaning it will cross through the equator of our galaxy. It isn't the end of the world or anything. Makes sense since the Mayan calender and other ones that predict this event were based on the Earth/stars/Sun.

If something bad is going to happen, I'm not worried about it. I'm going to sit down on the porch, and pour myself a nice glass of Scotch on the rocks and enjoy my final moments.

Yes a lot of so called prophets have listed 2012 as either the end or something catastrophic.

I will not be paranoid as some of my friends were with the Y2K scare, but I will not sit back oblivious and taken by surprise either.

There seem to be too many soothsayers calling for something big/bad to ignore

You do realize that there is no equator in a 4th dimentional universe, right?

Elsewise, there are 'scholars' that have realized that the Mayan calendar is approx 4 years off of our own since our own is is not nearly exact as theirs.

Ever wonder why the next year, we are not going off the DLST deal?

Next time, try dividing by 0...

Who knows, just prepare ourselves for the nutjobs in some mass hysteria about the date.

Have fun,

Wasn't their calendar more accurate than our Gregorian calendar?
Well, Spanish priests burned all but two or three of their scroll, labeling them as Satan's work. So all we go one are like three books out of hundreds.

It's going to be Y2K all over again. We spent thousands of dollars preparing for what turned out to be nothing. Even threw a big party at the fire station so all the Volunteers would be there when the SHTF, and nothing. But do to circumstances we are already planning to do the basically same thing again only this time we are talking about having our bug out kits with us just incase.
