"This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 -- hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012."

Which has always been bullshiat. There is no evidence that the Mayans believed that this was the end of the cycle. That conclusion only holds if you believe that the final gear of their clock/calendar has 13 teeth. The only reason anyone thinks that is because SOME of the other gears have 13 teeth. But 13 isn't even the most common number of teeth on a gear from the known gears. That distinction belongs to the number 40.

So, in short, all of you people who put any credence into the idea that ANY of the Mayans thought this was the end of time are total farking tards, and you should kill yourself in a kerosene fire before you breed and pollute the planet with your idiocy.
