    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..

    Boy, a lot of idiots who purchased doomsday shelters are going to be really red in the face when nothing happens on December 21st.

    Being confronted with evidence to the contrary can actually lead some people to believe MORE strongly in their original opinions.

    Finally! Some people are starting to get it! Frankly, this disproves that theory of you know what, and coupled with NASA debunking a lot of those so-called world ending natural events, this means that those fools who believe this garbage are proven wrong! :p

    Yeah, already knew that it cycles.
    Still, good to see that this news finally got out before people start doing something stupid regarding the 2012 prediction.

    I really don't care anymore. There's no rationalizing with irrational people. I was just waiting til 2013 and saying "You're a fucking idiot. You know that, right?"

    I personally think that it shouldn't matter to others what you believe, I personally think that it's nonsense that the Mayans predicted the end of the world, but that's me. If you think that the world is going to end, go ahead and believe it, if you think it's not, then good for you. There's only one way to know when the world ends, and that's when it ends, and that's if it even happens in our lifetimes, for all of which we know the planet could still have many billions of years left to it.

    I can't wait to see their faces when nothing happens.. Saw a Wife Swap with a family that believes it will happen. Kids have to carry emergency packs with them at all times. God are those kids gonna never trust their parents again after this.

    I don't feel bad for anyone who thought ahead, and went for shelters. They could be used for other emergencies. Tornadoes, Hurricanes, etc.

    I've always suspected the 2012 Doomsday thing was bullshit and that it was just the end of how far the Mayans decided to plan ahead. I'm sure that if it had been 2013 instead of 2012, people would have been freaking out about THAT year instead of this one.

    Why wait until Jan 1st? You could have easily told them "MERRY CHRISTMAS! YOU'RE STILL ALIVE!" since the Mayan Apocalypse was foretold to happen only on the 21st or 23rd of December.
