No []

But really i watched it so i did some research and all that and even asked my genius nerd brother (bluechip) what he thought...he was no help clearly. Everything that i mcgooglized refered to the Mayan calender so i thought to myself "great...3 years. well this sucks". Anybody with some smart background on them??

Heres what happened:

The Mayans are pretty smart, so they use their brains and make calenders that go far into the future. They get to the end of a big one, which happens to end in 2012. They ask themselves "Should we keep making calenders?" The answer was no. The Mayans simply got bored, and were preoccupied with remaining a legitimate culture and not extincting

A sport is something that you cannot do with a torn ACL, and is not decided by "judges". Everything else is an "activity"

My dad went to Cancun on vacation this spring simply to ask that question to a Mayan. The guy acted angry that my dad asked and explained it was like a 53 year calendar and that they would just make a new one. My dad really got into the 13 crystal skulls or something like that and the great flood. He watched a ton of documentaries this past winter on it. He's a big conspiracy theorist. Well, let's just say he was disappointed on his conversation with the Mayans in the Cancun area. He still thinks the world is ending though.

I would tend to agree on some of them though. Look at all the natural disasters in the last 5-6 years. MAjor tsunami's, increased rains and droughts, heavy snowfalls, increased global warming trends, the jellyfish thing, tons of eruptions and earthquakes. The signs are all here. I may go see the movie though for the fun of it.

They said nothing about the world ending in 2012, that's just when their calendar ended. It's really not that big of a deal; all calendars eventually have to come to and end. And, even if they had predicted it outright, here are two things to take into consideration.

1. The Aztecs were a much more advanced society than the Mayans, and according to their great powers of astronomy, Cortes was supposed to be the return of Quetzalcoatl... and how'd that work out for them?

2. If the Mayans were so great at forseeing future events, then why didn't they see their civilization being wiped out by the Spanish by the year 1700?

The modern Mayans don't even put any emphasis into this old ass calendar anyways.
