    It wouldn't matter either way, the point is that, although I believe that they had their own unique understanding of what would happen on 2012, it appears incompatible with a contemporary consensus. So, while it is a novel notion, a genuine curiosity in the modern world, I cannot say that I share these particular beliefs of the Mayans, ancient or otherwise.

    Death is also happens to be one of the ways that change ones way of looking at the world.

    I'm going for the revised Inca calendar myself. Those folks knew how to wear their loincloths and headdresses.

    I think he meant that we can't know for sure what they were really thinking and believing because so much information is missing. At least that is how I understood the comment.

    I've already posted two threads about 2012:

    It seems scholars and present-day Mayan elders are in agreement that 2012 is not supposed to be the end of the world.

    Thank God for that, I was worried.

    Generation Y - First Wave

    I relate quite a bit to younger GenXers because my older sister is one & 5 years older, & I relate to people 5 years older more than people 5 years younger, even though they are technically of the same generation Y.

    Yeah, those of us on the cusp between 2 generations (I'm X, 5th wave) can sometimes identify with both generations, or the one we weren't technically born in more than the one we actually were born in. I think it has a lot to do with the age of our parents, as well. My parents are Boomers (3rd and 4th wave), but if they had been younger maybe I would identify more with Gen Y. I definitely identify more with X than Y, but there are some aspects of Y I identify with, as well.

    ^ Yes, my parents are boomers, 3rd & 4th wave as well. I suppose that does have something to do with it. I remember being in HS and some of my friends had parents in their 30s still, but mine were squarely middle aged...and I tended to hang out with other people who were "the youngest", meaning they had older siblings of GenX influencing them also.

    It's funny that GenX 1st wave starts at 1961 because my mom's sisters were born in that generation & they definitely have a different "vibe". They sort of lived the 80s as young single people, and my mom was already married & a parent & seemed "older" by then.
