The end of the world countdown has begun.
December 21 2012 signifies the end of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, used by the pre-Columbian Maya civilization among others. This date completes a “great cycle” of thirteen b’ak’tuns (periods of 144,000 days each) since the mythical creation date of the calendar’s current era. And is the official ‘end’ of their calendar.
So on this date, the Mayans predict the end of an era. They believed that we are now in the 3rd era and on this date, and on the 21st of December the 4th era will begin. This could be interpretted as the beginning of a new golden age or it could mean the end of the world and life starts all over.
Either way…. I wonder if they predicted the amount of crazy parties that would take place or the crazy cults that would be gathering in camps in the woods waiting for the aliens to come take them away?
I can’t wait to see what happens, one thing for sure this is bound to be the biggest anti climax since the Y2k.
Lets all count down together
