    A new reading of a Maya tablet mentioning the 2012 date suggests that it refers to the end of an era in the calendar, and not an apocalypse.

    The date was "a reflection of the day of creation", Mayan codes researcher Sven Gronemeyer told AP.

    The day also marked the return of a Maya god, Mr Gronemeyer added.

    Bolon Yokte, the god of creation and war, was expected to return, according to Mr Gronemeyer's reading of a Mayan text carved into stone 1,300 years ago.
    .................

    Only two out of 15,000 registered Mayan texts mention the date 2012, according to the Institute, and no Mayan text predicts the end of the world.

    Not the end of the world, but the end of an "era within the calendar". Large scale changes usually accompany the end of any "era". Many might wish it was the end of the world. Or, it will just be another day like every other..

    In the end (pun intended?), on earth stuff blows up, weather gets really nasty, the fault lines quakes, and too many people die every single day. In that regard, 12-21-2012 will be just like any other day.. give or take

    The Skyrim meme is pretty much the only meme I've ever liked, as such I'm going to continue to milk it to fit in on the internetz, where memes rule. (Actually I still just find it funny.)

    I don't see how anyone can care to even spark a conversation regarding this.
    Just can't go without seeing a topic.

    I kinda find it amusing how a lot of people are actually buying into this. The Mayans couldn't even predict their own extinction. Lol.

    I'm fine with it all ending should that be God's plans. Would have liked to have some grand kids, but other than that life's been pretty good. But, if it doesn't end quickly I have some survival gear stashed just in case. When you live in the potential hurricane zone folks tend to be prepared for lapses in societal support systems.

    So, this expert claims that the Mayan Calendar started on Aug. 13, 3114 B.C. That's 3100 years of BC time, add 100 years for life of JC then 2112 more for AD. That's a bit over 5.000 years. Isn't Aug. 13, 3114 B.C. about when the Old Testament was written too?
