We’ve all heard the news by now that the Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012, and that is a predictor of the end of the world. Fortunately, ending the world isn’t that easy! Remember the Y2K scare? The end of the world was supposed to happen then too as the computers were all going to shut down.
Even last year, American Christian Radio Host Harold Camping predicted the end of the world would begin on May 21, 2011 and end on October 21, 2011. Both of those dates came and went, and we are still here.
Similarly, the world won’t end in 2012. The Mayan calendar doesn’t actually end on December 21, 2012, it actually begins a new period of time, not unlike the turning of the millennium under our calendar. The Mayan Calendar records time very differently than we do, which is part of the confusion.
