The Mayan prophecy is real. The only issue is that we are viewing the dates wrong. The Mayan's never accounted for a leap year, so in reality the end of the world is going to happen this coming June.

"Shroom trip" is always what I mean by "prophecy."

i read some article where they interviewed a Mayan and he was like 'we don't believe the world will end. Our calendar will end, but a new calendar will begin. It is like a new beginning.' what kind of calendar is 5125 years? how do you come up with a random number like that?

the world doesn't end every december 31st for the rest of us does it?

Is there a naturally occurring form of mythology I am unfamiliar with? Old wives tales and urban legends, perhaps?

It's amazing the level of shiat religious whack jobs and new agers leap to because they so desperately want the world to end. They are all death cults. Jews, Christians, Muslims, New Agers just froth at the mouth over messiahs, imams and "masters" to destroy the world.

You're all a bunch of sick farks. Just my opinion, don't take it personally. You need to get a farking hobby or become gainfully employed to a degree that makes you responsible for helping make the world a better place.

Religion is the science of pulling bullshiat out of your ass to force down people's throats.

The 21st of December
That day I'll always remember, yes I will
Cause that is the day, that Mayan Calendars die
I never got a chance to see 'em
Never heard nothin' but bad things about 'em
Momma I'm depending on you, to tell me the truth
Momma just hung her head and said, son
Calendar's a rolling stone...

No, the world will and on December 31 when your 12 Cutest Kittens calendar runs out. Notice how the calendar ends and don't have an infinite number of pages? It means the printer of the calendar has mystic foreknowledge of the end of the world on December 31... not that the year starts over from January 1.

FTA: The December 21 date appeared in a 1975 book by Terence McKenna, a writer who is also infamous for strange descriptions of "machine elves" he saw while he was tripping balls.

To be fair, in Mayan mythology (from what I remember in high school Spanish, so YMMV) there were 4 'worlds' which end after a certain time to be destroyed, and the last one (the third world) was destroyed after 14 b'aktuns. We are ending the 12th in this world, so there's no connection there. In addition, the previous worlds were destroyed because they were not 'successful,' I suppose habitable to men. Wiki says that dates in the 13th (upcoming) b'aktun and beyond are mentioned so apparently even they didn't assume the world is going to end.

Their callander has base 20 and base 18 units parts. So the long count is a funky length. It was so funky, even the ancient Mayans stopped using it by the 1500s, prefering the Short Count, which is more useful to human time frames.

KiwDaWabbit: So, it's like the Book of Revelation?


Well, the primary way that people induced hallucinations when the bible, koran, talmud, etc were being written was basic deprivation, or at least that was the popular method. And I'm not being ironic with the word "popular", self-inducing visions and claiming to be a prophet in the Roman period was basically the regional sport, with declaring yourself the Jewish messiah running a close second.

There's a reason people with even a passing familiarity with that period of history get all twitchy when religious idiots start going on about "evidence for a historical Jesus" and so on. Sure, there were about 100 of them at any given time, and 10000 prophets in the desert to go with 'em.

And you didn't account for our switch to the Gregorian calendar from the Julian calendar. We still have 7 years

All I know is, I was a kid in the 70s, listening to all the Atlantis, Bigfoot, Bermuda Triangle stuff through an earplug in my AM radio in the "Chariots of the Gods?" era, perhaps even concurrent with the Watergate hearings on TV, so basically there wan't anything I wasn't ready to believe in. I didn't think radio shows like that were strange or unusual at all. I thought everybody talked about and knew about that kind of stuff, including the Mayan calendar 2012 legend.

Miami being 1 corner of the BT, we had our share of disappearing planes and ships and that was real enough for me to go ahead and then believe in all of it, lock stock and barrel full of monkeys.

Most New Agers historically haven't seen the end of the Mayan calendar as a doomsday event. Those who believe it has some real meaning usually interpret it as the date of some kind of worldwide spiritual awakening. You know, New Agey stuff.

The idea of 12/21/2012 as the end of the world didn't really take off until the movie "2012" came out and The History Channel did a few so-called "documentaries" on the Mayan calendar.

In fact, most of them are hosting potlucks for the event. Nothing says apocalypse like a couscous sweet potato casserole.

The Mayans did understand a lot of stuff about the universe. Then they all died. I hope this is just the last calendar they had time to make.
