Wait, you actually believe that when the Mayan calendar will or won't end will actually affect your lifespan? What Bob said. Aztecs, on the other hand, and Montezuma in particular, are a bunch of annoying warmongers in Civilization V.

The underlying assumption for the whole 'world ends when the Mayan calendar ends' is that the Mayans, had they survived this long, wouldn't have created another calendar. :3

the whole theory is that they guessed that a man would take a shit at one point in time, so all of a sudden people who didn't have deodorant are the wisest people in the history of the world.



I don't give a shit if they drew an astronaut. Fahrenheit 451 predicted headphones, does that mean that if the author says a horse will fuck us, that it will be true?

I never believed in the whole 2012 thing, just because Mayas could predict astronomical events extremely well, doesn't mean they know when the world will end. I always figured the people who believed in 2012 also believe we didn't go to the moon and Obama wasn't born in Hawaii.

And "affect my lifespan" as in end my life early by the way.

Yes, I got that. And again, if you believe the Mayans were a bunch of jack-offs anyways, why do you actually believe their calendar predicted anything about the world ending?

Exactly what I was trying to say. In less nice words.

I think the chain of events goes something like:

1: Some people notice that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012 (except it doesn't).
2: Some people interpret that as the world definitely ending (why there is a consensus on this, I'm not sure), because, as all the ancient civilizations, the Mayans were totally smarter than we are.
3: Various theories of how the world could end are formed.
4: More and more jump on this band vagon, making their own theories, because the world ending is a great subject to earn some money and fame off of. The theory in question are backed with the flimsiest scientific and circumstantial evidence.
5: Gullible people, the kind of people who prefer their "documentaries" with scary music and sentences like "Coincidence? What do YOU think?!", go into hysteria and buys lots of doomsday stuff and spread it around.

Well, it's just like the Y2K bug and Nostradamus prophecies.

They're just fads until it turns out nothing actually happens.

Well, the Y2K bug was real. It's just that it was largely fixed in time, and not much of significance happened.

Wasn't it fixed somewhat well in advance of the issue?

And then the media continued on milking it for all it was worth, because people just found it interesting/were too ignorant about the issue to know the difference?

But you're right, Y2K bug could actually happen in reality. Still, I related it since was another huge pseudo-apocalypse scenario fixed to a certain date/time that, during the height of its popularity in media, was basically guaranteed to not actually happen.
