I've also heard the Egyptian Pyramid(s) have a timeline built into their inner structure that stops at that time. Any light you can shine will enlighten me & many others as to what may become of us, the Earth, Time, and Space. Thanks a lot! Steve McClung Carpinteria, CA 93013
Question about Palenque Mayan Ruins and the Temple of the Inscriptions
Have you been listening to the hype about the upcoming film? The Mayans had a different way of marking the passing of time called the Long Count Calendar which finishes it's cycle on the 20th of December 2012. It does start up again the next day though, on the 13th cycle, so the ancient Mayans had met the end of a cycle before and would have been partying like it was 1999, rather than worried about the end of the world. The ancient Mayans did predict events that happen beyond that date, so they mustn't have thought it was going to be the end of it all.
