One thing more certain than having to pay taxes, is that the world will not end on Friday, 21 December 2012.
The theory that the world will end on 21/12/12 is derived from a misconception that the Mayans predicted that the world will end on 21/12/12 by ending their Calendar on 21/12/12.
The reality is that the Mayans never actually predicted that the world would end in the year 2012.
In fact, many modern-day Mayans are deeply distressed at how their culture has been hijacked by Hollywood blockbuster films, conspiracy theorists and propagandists.
Friday, December 21 2012 is NOT the end of the Mayan Calendar, but simply the end of one b’ak’tun. A baktun is 20 katun cycles of the ancient Maya Long Count Calendar and contains 144,000 days, equal to 394.26 tropical years.
Therefore, there’s no need to worry about the world ending on Friday, 21 December 2012. I guarantee you will wake up on Saturday morning feeling fine, or a little hung-over.
