Centuries ago, Mayan intellectuals created a calendar at least equal to today's most commonly used. Because Catholic priests made certain almost all of Mayan (Codex) history was burned (heretical), we have few factual threads to follow to try to ascertain what this portends for mankind. What little remains seems to predict a unprecedented cataclysm occuring on or after 12/21/2012. Will it, and if so what form will it take; meteor, bombs?

What happens when you get to December 31st of every year? You get a new calendar.

The same with the Mayans. Except they have much longer cycles then our measly 365 day calendar. They were going to create a new one when the time came. Except the Spanish sort of came in and killed the majority off.

I think it marks the end of the Mayan civilization... or would have, if it hadn't ended prematurely through the efforts of others.

Nothing's going to happen. Life will continue as it has on the 22nd. I trust a bunch of physicists and scientist at NASA more than I trust the internet (sorry, internet). http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/2012.html

I believe if you can find a Mayan Office Depot, they will have calendars, it just won't have any dates.

Nothing will happen. If the Mayans had some knowledge of a major cataclysm, they would have recorded it on one of their many edifices.

If the Mayans knew so much, why did the even bother to go to 2012, since their civilization ended a long time ago?
Maybe they just got distracted with some party, war or human sacrifice, and just never got back to it.

The Mayans will be forced to use a different calendar, most likely the Julian Calendar

I can't believe some clever entrepreneur hasn't started selling a Mayan calendar that begins on 12/22.

LOL: you will die a horrible death and the rest of us will be just fine until the next "end of time" crackpot comes along.

Hopefully, people will stop asking.

My kid takes her road test that day. It will truly be the end of the world as we know it.

Czechbird: A great puzzle for archaeologists and anthropologists is figuring what really did happen to the Inca. There was no gold in what was their domain, so the Conquistadors, except for the ever-present priests trying for conversion or destruction, had no interest. However, much of their civilization was gone before Spanish arrival. What conquistadores did find they destroyed as symptoms of heresy and soulless savages. The Spanish were intellectual midgets as compared to what the evidence from the mysterious Inca had left behind shows.

D.F.W. I certainly hope that you, wherever you may be, are able to enjoy a wonderful 12.22.2102. Hope you have Saturdays off.

Orion 1113: The prediction is a part of the (engraved/carved stone) calendar, found by archaeologists, who proclaim that this self-same calendar stops at 12-21-2012. Truly remarkable that these people had such knowledge (of celestial events and calendars) while northern europeans were trying to figure out what to do with fire.

The Mayan calendar didn't account for leap years. Once you account for them, our (their) time ran out over a year ago.

So what did happen then?
