Have you noticed how the talk about "2012" Mayan calendar has pretty much vanished?

Funny how December 21st (?) 2012 Mayan calendar talk has pretty much dried up. I wonder why? In the past stuff like this would run right up to the date but this subject seems to have dried up.

Conspiracy?? Probably.

Last I heard was that another whole new calendar was found that begins in 2012. Kinda sticks a fork in the whole "end of the world" rumors.

I think right now people are more concerned with the 2012 election calendar. Both calendars have the potential to end the same.

NHBandit hit it. National Geographic did a great story on the uncovering of a scholar's cave/vault/temple showing multiple calendars, one picking up where another leaves off. That was 8 months ago?

The oldest-known version of the ancient Maya calendar has been discovered adorning a lavishly painted wall in the ruins of a city deep in the Guatemalan rainforest.

The hieroglyphs, painted in black and red, along with a colorful mural of a king and his mysterious attendants, seem to have been a sort of handy reference chart for court scribes in A.D. 800 the astronomers and mathematicians of their day. Contrary to popular myth, this calendar isn't a countdown to the end of the world in December 2012, the study researchers said.

"The Mayan calendar is going to keep going for billions, trillions, octillions of years into the future," said archaeologist David Stuart of the University of Texas, who worked to decipher the glyphs. "Numbers we can't even wrap our heads around."

I talked to a guy who was in mexico this summer, at the pyramids. Apparently they were swarming with new-age d-bags in white robes, chanting and waving their arms about.

These dumbasses need to give some serious consideration to hitching a ride on the next comet, ala Heaven's Gate.

Well all I can say is that there are a few micro brewerys making "end of the world" concoctions and that's really more than enough evidence for me. At least the 21st of December is a Friday so I'll be able to take full advantage of the new brews.

Actually I recently heard that scientists were off by 45 days in interpeting the calendar. So the world will end 45 days before December 21st. Some quick math tells us the world will end on November 6th...

That is good news. All the fuss is over a gross misinterpretation. The Mayans "predicted" all kinds of coming events, some as far a 4000 A.D.. The concern that 21 DEC 12 will be the end is pure media-hype BS. Unfortunately, some folks are believing it's going to be the end.

For a good read on the subject, check put Claire Wolfe's article on it in Backwoods Home Magazine, about tow issues back.

Like my Mom use to teach us, "The world ends for somebody everyday day."

What I always found funny is the lack of information regarding a little known fact. When the Spanish conquistadors found many of the Mayan ruins, they found volumes and volumes of written and recorded information. When they began to interpret the info back in Spain, the church said it was blasphemy and destroyed most of records. So for anyone to claim anything regarding anything Mayan is just plain ignorant. Like someone said Mayan followers should attach themselves to a passing commit and enjoy the short lived journey.

It's a business that preys on the mentally ill. As a date approaches, the professionals need to shift the date to keep the cash flow going. Interesting to watch, wish I could dream this stuff up.

Lama of the monastery under Gyandrek Kailas, known as the Oracle of Shambhala told how to survive the apocalypse, which he said will last two weeks.

Australia's Prime Minister Julia Gillard has warned that predictions of the end of the world by ancient Mayans were correct and that the final days are coming -- in a deadpan ad for a lighthearted breakfast radio show.

"Whether the final blow comes from flesh-eating zombies, demonic hell-beasts or the total triumph of K-Pop, if you know one thing about me, it is this: I will always fight for you to the very end," Gillard said in a message to the "dear remaining fellow Australians."

She concluded her message by saying "Good luck to you all."

I have told my entire family that I'm not getting them anything for Christmas because the world is going to end before then. Blame it on the Mayans, not me..

National Geographic channel had doomsday programs on all last week. Seems they haven't gotten the word about the new-found mayan calendars. Surely they wouldn't do it simply for ratings!

Chinese authorities arrested more than 450 people accused of belonging to a doomsday cult after they held secret gatherings and spread leaflets, China Central Television reported today on its website.
