i think they A. the people making the calendar got sacrificed to theyre zombie gods or the back side of the calendar got worn off so yeah we should really get cracking on the giant floating city idea right or better yet city on stilts then we all move there and then another zombie apoolypse were i get to have the fun of operated the paster dont know what it is but its fun using.
How I feel about the whole 2012 nonsense is A. they said the same thing about 2000 and june 6. 2006 so I am rather sceptical. but on the other hand whatever happens is going to happen weather we like it or not all we can do is try to be prepared for it. The weak won't survive although if its just going to in fact have something to do with the sun enveloping the earth then we are all screwed anyway. Whatever happens is going to happen no matter what we do, a sad yet true fact of our lowly existance in this universe.
Being someone who has been to Guatemala and spoken to experts on Mayan culture, the interpretation of the Mayan myth is way off. Their "end of the world" is really only the same as a clock resetting at the end of 24 hours. the entire calender simply resets.
We can only hope 2012 is zpoc but most likely not and besides the mayans were using rocks and strings and shit so do you really think they could predict a gamma burst? so ya know what? It's all bullshit they said the same god damn thing about 2000
The world will end when the world ends, there's nothing we can do about when it happens. Speculating about when it happens shouldn't be anything more than entertainment and, if you feel the need, preparation. But, like a lot of things, some wackjobs have taken it to a crazy, and sometimes deadly, extreme.
I think the world will end on the day when no one say it will end, so we're pretty safe.
