How to align the Mayan calendar with the Western world's calendar is disputed by an academic who thinks the Mayan calendar might already have expired.
It's a good news/bad news situation for believers in the 2012 Mayan apocalypse. The good news is that the Mayan "Long Count" calendar may not end on Dec. 21, 2012 (and, by extension, the world may not end along with it). The bad news for prophecy believers? If the calendar doesn't end in December 2012, no one knows when it actually will — or if it has already.
Click thru and read the details. The academic who disputes the widely accepted December 2012 date does not know what the correct date is. So the world could end at any time. This takes up back to where we were before the Mayan calendar came to be viewed as the reliable source of end of world predictions for Hollywood movies.
There are so many reasons the world might end. If you are the solipsist whose imagination dreams up this world then your breaking up with someone could end the world for all of us.
