Uh Oh- Another Doomsday Date Correction (The Maya One)

Oops! Maya doomsday date corrected

El Castillo

    The El Castillo pyramid at Chichen Itza in Mexico is one of the monuments left behind by the Maya.

Are we having doomsday yet? Some folks say the ancient Maya calendar‘s “Long Count” runs out on Dec. 21, 2012, and that a world-changing crisis will occur at that time. Other folks, including the modern-day Maya, say that’s just a load of llama crap … and that 12/22/2012 will merely mark the start of a new calendar cycle.

And then there’s Gerardo Aldana, a professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara, who says they’re all probably wrong.

Aldana contends that the calculations we’ve used to match up the Maya calendar to our modern reckoning could be off by as much as 50 to 100 years, and that the Long Count may have already ended. If Aldana is right, the timetable for the apocalypse may already be up. Which might explain why “Apocalypto” director Mel Gibson’s been acting so weird lately.
