2012 isn't the end of the world, Mayans insist

2012 isn't the end of the world, Mayans insist
Right from the horses mouth
SNIPPETS OF THE ARTICLE: ( click link above this )

..."MEXICO CITY — Apolinario Chile Pixtun is tired of being bombarded with frantic questions about the Mayan calendar supposedly "running out" on Dec. 21, 2012. After all, it's not the end of the world.

Or is it?

Definitely not, the Mayan Indian elder insists. "I came back from England last year and, man, they had me fed up with this stuff..."

...Bernal suggests that apocalypse is "a very Western, Christian" concept projected onto the Maya, perhaps because Western myths are "exhausted."

..."They're really super-duper trying to find anything astronomical they can to fit that date of 2012," Plait said.

....Scientists say that, at best, the poles might change location by one degree over a million years, with no sign that it would start in 2012.

While long discredited, Brasseur de Bourbourg proves one thing: Westerners have been trying for more than a century to pin doomsday scenarios on the Maya. And while fascinated by ancient lore, advocates seldom examine more recent experiences with apocalypse predictions.

"No one who's writing in now seems to remember that the last time we thought the world was going to end, it didn't," says Martin, the astronomy webmaster. "There doesn't seem to be a lot of memory that things were fine the last time around."

this is going to be worse than y2k

And so they are...

I think that nothing will happen in 2012.Apparently, the world is supposed to end in 2012 to be exact December 21st. A lot of people predict when the world will end on some far-fetched conspiracies and they always movie it back years later. And those too fail. First People said world would end in 2000 then nothing happened in 2000. In my opinion nobody know exactly what will happen in 2012 and end of the world is only in the hand of god.
