The 2012 End of the World Craziness Debunked, Again

Maya calendar

It’s a sad day for the maniacal loons fixated on the ‘end of the world will be 2012’ Mayan calendar.  Seems that the calculations for the calendar are all off… by 50 to 100 years…

A new critique, published as a chapter in the new textbook “Calendars and Years II: Astronomy and Time in the Ancient and Medieval World” (Oxbow Books, 2010), argues that the accepted conversions of dates from Mayan to the modern calendar may be off by as much as 50 or 100 years. That would throw the supposed and overhyped 2012 apocalypse off by decades and cast into doubt the dates of historical Mayan events.

Aww… poor things. Better luck with your next crazy calculations.

One thought on “The 2012 End of the World Craziness Debunked, Again

    A year or two ago, “Archaelogy” did a good story about the calendar. As I recall, it stated that the end of the calendar just meant another one would start… It reminded me (in one respect) of the “Great Year” Thomas Thompson describes in “The Mythic Past.”
