    If I remember right this prediction is based on the fact that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012.

    Given how difficult the computation and recording process was in the Mayan culture and time, I figure the guy who was making the calendar died before he got any further. I mean, how many mathematically talented stone carving calendar obsessed Mayans could there have been? Everyone else was perfectly content to just make copies, which was dedication enough considering the materials. ;)

    its more then just the Mayan calender, there are a few different groups like the Hopi Indians, Nostradamus... etc that all agree.

    What the naysayers neglect to tell you is that the alignment of the planets on December 21st occurs EVERY December 21st. Plus the Mayan calendar isn't ending, but merely starts the cycle over again.

    As an amateur astronomer we get asked these questions from the general public. That and the myth that every August, Mars will be as big as the Moon.
