Mayan DecorationsWhen is the end of the world?

According to some 'experts', the end of the world is on or after 12/21/2012

Who Were the Mayans?

The Mayan civilization flourished in what is now the modern day Central America region which includes parts of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, and Honduras. The period of their society lasted from roughly 1800 BC to 800 AD. Why the Maya civilization disappeared is subject to debate among scholars, and includes theories such as a multi-year drought, peasant revolt, disease, and possible over population.
The Mayans left many contributions to the world including their hieroglyphic language, Mayan architecture which includes the famous stepped pyramids, and one of their most famous contributions, the Maya Long Count Calendar.

What is the Mayan Calendar?

The Mayan Calendar is actually a collection of several calendars that were used to synchronize events for farming, politics, and astrological events such as the Venus cycle. All of these calendars ranged from as short as 13 days up to 584 days. The Mayan Calendar was designed (we believe) to be liner in nature so that it could be extended to any date in the future until eternity. BUT IT STOPS! December 21, 2012 is the last possible day of the current Mayan Calendar. Did they anticipate a new, updated calendar would be created? Are you supposed to re-cycle the existing calendar as the Mayan culture was steeped in the recognition of death and rebirth. What did they intend when they made the current calendar? What better way to get together with friends on December 21, 2012 to discuss Mayan culture and folklore that to host your own Mayan party.
