The movie 2012 and its relevance with the actual end of the earth

2012, is a film that is just about to be released here in Australia.

The movie provides great pictures and scenarios of how our world may end. (im gonna watch it in the movies, seriously) But, guys (and girls) im sorry to say… pack away your guns and any materials you might possibly use for anarchy, coz the end of the world aint coming. (not in our life time atleast).

Im saying this because many people around the world who heard that the mayan calander depicts the end of the world, just took it the wrong way…

WOW, some calander ends in two years and this gives us the excuse that the world is going to end? BIG DEAL!

Let me prove to you WHY it wont happen!

The mayan calander is much like our own.

We have 365 days in our year (not including leap years).
Our calander only runs for one year.
After every year, we make a new calander.

Now, WOULDNT you think this also applies to the mayans?
well, correct me if Im wrong, coz i typing this from the top of my head.

BUT, the mayan calander has an age of 5,125.36 years.
so in 5,125.36 years, they need to make a new calander.
This is the end of the ‘Great Cycle’

See... it looks JUST like a clock..

so then, after this amount of years, their calander ends, and they need to replace it.

Now, coincidentally (yes, thats right, coincidences happen) the calander ends in two years (since 2009 is practically the end and the beginning of 2010).
But many people say, if the the calander is ending, and its not depicting the end of the world, then why arent they making a new calander?

Simple reason folks, VERY simple.
The mayans are an extinct civilization. If there were to still be some distant relatives or survivors, i would seriously doubt their ability to create another system of exceptional engineering, mathematical mastery in cyclical deviation and complex thinking in terms that incorporate time for past/present/future!

So therefore, the world is not ending. Only that we need to replace an irreplaceable artifact that has simply…gone out of date…
