    That makes more sense. Sort of like the end of a decade, century and so on.

    Does this mean that I don't have to start worrying for another 2000 years?

    It seems there should be some doubt for those who think the Mayan's predicted the end to be this year since the end for the Mayans happened with the arrival of the Spanish. :confused:

    The Mayan Calendar is part of the Mayan Mythology that every thing that takes place in Life is Cyclical and knowing what those Cycles mean can help predict those things that might take place in the Future.

    The End of the Baktun was just the End of a Cycle and the beginning of the Next Baktun and not the End of the World as we know it.

    And to be completely fair...

    "The end of the world as we know it" does not necessarily mean the end of the world at all.

    One could argue the world "ended as we knew it" in the early 20th century with the technological explosion... The "world as we knew it" might have ended again when we set foot on the moon. Just to use a couple of examples.

    Uh oh! Here we go again.

    I just noticed that the calendar hanging on the wall in my kitchen ends on 12/31/2012. There are no more days after that.

    Seven more days to go. :eek2:
