    Merely the end of a cycle of 5,125 years since the beginning of the Mayan Long Count calendar in 3113 BC.
    No mention was ever made of the world ending, or indeed civilization.

    Although there is a reference to the return of the lizard king, if my memory serves me correctly, on said date…or perhaps the date being mentioned twice in 1500 ors it 15000 mayan codices eg Dresden codex.

    The story propagates in the following fashion
    1) I Invented the wheel.
    2) 2 people quote me
    3) 4 people quote those 2 people
    4) 8 people quote those 4 people, and so on…
    5) Like a virus; sprouts arms, legs and forked tongues. So to spake, in the manner known as verbatim.
    6) BTW I really did invent the wheel, as well as the shoe...

    Mind you planet earth has been here 4.36 ish billion years.
    So chances are its gonna be here a very long time,
    Ors it chances are its been here waay too long,

    I asked it once, "What are you doing on Earth?" It said, "Listen, if you're a mushroom, you live cheap; besides, I'm telling you, this was a very nice neighborhood until the monkeys got out of control."

    just a continuing part of the Mayan creation myth where the gods become unsatisfied with life on earth and destroy it and then replace it... the mud people were destroyed by a flood and the wood people (who had no souls and mistreated their dogs and cooking pots) were destroyed by being beaten to death by their possessions... we are the humans created from monkeys and are to be destroyed eventually by a massive earthquake (they made us read the popul vuh in comparative mythology! the mayan hell has a much cooler name than the english speaking hell... xibalba )

    of course, when I was taking comparative mythology 6 years ago I informed my mother that the world was said to end on December 21st, 2012... she said "good... no christmas shopping"

    Damn it, I was just gonna invite y'all to an end of the world party I'm throwing. Never mind my peeps think I 'm bat shit crazy for doing so. So 21/12/12 y'all are all welcome to come stay at my Place. There will be beer and vodka. And maybe cookies if I remember.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.
