    I think it's a lot of nonsense.

    I am sure we will all still be here in the new year.

    The same nonsense was spread about the Y2K BUG
    back in 1999.

    More than half the world didn't even know the Mayan calendar existed. It only became famous because some fools believe it indicates the end of the world. Why they thought of that only the other fools would know. If the end does come on that day, it would be a fluke.

    My guess is, the end can come sooner and if not, it will come later 😉

    I posted earlier in another thread about that calender ending so abruptly. I think the maker of it just got tired of working on it and retired or was a beheaded as a sacrifice..lol

    How does a calender end non-abruptly?

    I mean a calender is just counting periodic events...
    How do you stop counting in a non-abrupt manner?

    Do you start getting bored and only count every other periodic event,
    and then just count some periods and not others at random,
    till you finally peter out and stop?

    It was just a joke. Yes you are right any calender ends.

    I didn't say any calender ends.

    I just said that when they do end, they do so abruptly.



    As to whether all calenders do end... Probably, but probably not in the way you mean.

    December 21, 2012 is simply the day that the calendar will go to the next b'ak'tun, at Long Count 13.0.0.0.0.

    Just like when our Gregorian Calendar turned 2000

    Mayan Calendar, Y2K, Book of Revelation, the Vedas, Nostradamus, Charles Taze Russell's predictions, the end of Kali Yuga, the Great Disappointment, Masih ad-Dajjal, etc. etc.

    These portentous and imaginative speculations are the fruits of the human condition and nothing more.
