The mayans couldn't even predict their own end how did they manage to predict ours.

How could any educated civilized human believe the Mayan calender could predict any thing? The Mayans crashed 500 years ago because they did not know a horse from a god.

I mean, if their polar ice caps are melting like ours then them little green dudes have to be screwing up too.
It's because the Martians and their greenhouse gasses (oh...excuse me ) Barry will get a group together to tackle this problem. I see a Mars Czar in the future.

That's another argument that's been debunked. They did account for the 1/4 day extra accumulated every year.

I still just don't believe anything will happen though. Same as Y2K. I only heard of one problem. A display screen on a friend's brand new DVD player died at the stroke of midnight that year. What a tragedy.

That's part of the problem with keeping both eyes toward the future, you forget to leave one on the present. This is why the civilization fell. So consumed with advance they were ignorant to the current... sound familiar?

Really our current state reminds me more of the state of Rome before it's downfall. Which is very similar to what you just described.

You think it so dissimilar to that of the Myan? Hell with broad enough a stroke all can be encapsulated within this. We all strive for a greatness, that's what sinks us. I think we're more capable of floating, but happenstance and hindsight...
