Is the world going to end this year?
Posted 20 June 2012 - 10:25 PM
Well, I totally disagree with the fact that the Mayans even said that there was an apocalypse, because all the Mayans did was run out of stone for calenders. However, many people interpreted that as no more calender meant no more life, and here we are today.
So what do you think about all this crap?
Btw, here is a video that I found explaining my point even further :
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill just laughed at Jack as he sat there unconscious.
Jack should've known that Jill was a baddie . . .

Of course it's complete BS. I'll be laughing on December 22nd at all the idiots that thought the world was going to end.

Thalia, just to clarify:
The Mayan calendar didn't have to take into account leap years. It's actually more specific than the Gregorian calendar (that most of the world uses) which has to have leap years. So saying the Mayan calendar was "wrong" because it didn't have leap years is incorrect. It was the people doing the math to calculate the end of the long-count cycle who didn't take into account leap years & the adjustments made to our calendar cycle over time.
Of course, there's also the thought that the original start date of the cycle could have been mis-interpreted, and we may have already passed the into the new cycle ... as much as a decade or possibly even a century ago. Or that it's actually next year or two years away from now. *shrug*
At any rate, I'm sure enough that the world isn't ending just because I have to buy a new calendar. I do that every year anyway.
(Now, world ending because some idiot decides it'd be a grand idea to declare nuclear war - I can see that happening anytime.)
