It has been predicted by the Mayans, through their Mayan calendar, that the apocalypse will come this December 21. And according to “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to 2012”, there are about 600,000 websites that are devoted to worrying about this news.
A few years ago, the movie “2012” was released and showed that the world, as we know it, will eventually end. And to make it more convincing and believable, the characters even consulted the Mayan calendar; hence, their conclusion of the end of the world.
This said Mayan calendar represents the earth in more than five millennia. And of course, the end of it happens in December 21, 2012. According to interpretations, the said halt of the calendar is just the end of the cycle of the Mayans. It is more like completing one long year. If the Mayans had been lucky to be around for another century, then they would have made another, a post 2012 calendar.
