Sounds to me like the Mayans forgot to flip the calender page before their decline in 900a.d. . Its just something else for ppl to make money on. Y2K was another example of crap. Who really knows... Come on 3 years form now the We will be wiped out forever?? F-that.

why does everyone bring up y2k with this? It has nothing to do with it and is irrelevant. If nothing happens, oh well, but don't put it in the same sentence with y2k.

We were predicting the downfall of humanity in Y2K. Now we're predicting the downfall of humanity in 2012. You don't see the similarities?

Nah it's good man, gotta preserve that science. But I did learn the stages a scientific claim must go through to reach being a Law. I thought gravity would be a Law, though, because it never fails. We don't know of any place without gravity, that I can think of, just places with low gravity. Seeing as about everything has mass, everything would have gravity.

this is astronomical stuff we are talking about. I don't think y2k had anything to do with that. Correct me if i am wrong.

Possible documented history about what happens on a grand scale over time astronomically speaking, is a much bigger deal that some hoax just to get attention.

I'm talking on the subject of apocalyptic catastrophe. And Y2K was some bad stuff; all the computers in America shutting off/going wild at one time isn't something to joke about, though it obviously was played with. Yeah, they're different in history, but the same in subject matter.

i really don't know much about y2k, but

If those calendars are right, and something does happen in every cycle, then we could be screwed. I mean, they created their city off the sun. They were smart as hell and knew way too much about astronomy. Everything goes in cycles probably, so i think there is a decent chance of being a massive eclipse of some sort every couple thousand years? It might not even be that bad, but the scariest part is that they seemed to know alot, and something like a solar eclipse is not out of the question. There really aren't any parodoxes i have found with the calendar either, which makes me think more that something is going to happen.

I do agree that that's what makes the Mayan predictions so eerie, that they were so great with calenders and astronomy. But there have been probably a dozen times where someone who was greatly trusted with their predictions have made mistakes about the future.
