I still wonder, though, if the Mayan Calendar does not predict or insinuate the end of the world, but simply that the calendar (the circle) is to be repeated, in order to carry on the dates and go forward.
Here is an excerpt from my article:
So, I came upon a simple solution. The Mayan calendar, based on a period of 260 days and covering centuries, from ancient times to the winter solstice in 2012, is a cycle of time. At the end of that cycle, a new cycle will begin. The new cycle was just not calculated by the ancients. Why would they go beyond the many centuries they did when maybe the new cycle will just be a repeat of the same calendar, the same cycle with different dates?
Since ancient times, the Native Americans have seen life in the form of circles, from birth to death, to rebirth in another realm - in human life as well as all creation. On that morning, after the end of the Mayan calendar cycle, is the world going to be destroyed? Or, is simply a new cycle of time in centuries going to begin?
What do you think?
