This is a myth that is yet to be seen or proven. The Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world by the year 2012, which is less than 2 years from now. Who here believes this to be true or do you think this is just a myth?
I think it's a myth, but it's intriguing... I saw a history channel show about the Mayan calendar, but then there was a follow up show about the Chinese "I-Ching" and a Hindu Text that claims the same thing will happen in 2012. (Can't remember what text - Vedas, Mahabarata or Puranas... anyone know?)
I kind of classify stuff like this in the same category as all the hype about the millennium. I just can't make myself crazy about it. I'll watch some TV shows about it and read an article or two, but I'm not going to stock up on water and canned food or anything like that. Not that that would help anyway, if it really was the end of the world.
The problem I have with that is it does not really say the world will end, but be reborn into a new age. I forget how many times they say this has happened. I believe it is the Navajo also have a similar prediction that some people believe is in 2012.
