So I happened to find this article: Maya archaeologists unearth new 2012 monument For those of you who obviously don't know the mayans, they never predicted "you know what" (as proven above). The calender itself doesn't end this year, just one of it's cycles. The cycle we're currently in is called the 13th Baktun, a cycle of thousands of years. It just so happens to end in december, and as you know, crazy doomtards and conspiracy nuts have grasped this and squeezed the living hell out of it putting fear and anxiety in the hearts of the trembling believers. In fact, the mayans saw this cycle stop as a political celebration for their time. Unfortunately, they had a few issues of their own and the declined. But as you see, this has nothing to do with us, or the rest of the world for that matter. Pretty interesting I understand why we're finding so much about the mayans this year, because ya know, with it being 2012 and all. But it seems like the more about the mayans' relation with this year we find out, the more of a Hoax this "doomsday" is. NOTE: I didn't make this for any debate, just wanted to post as an interesting read like all the others out there. it is news after all..
