Actually that's not correct.  The end of a cycle isn't simply the begining of the next crop planting cycle that repeates itself year after year.  The end of age cycles has much more to do with major changes in human spirituality.  So the end of an age is actually associated with the growth and evolution of humanity therefore it really is a little like the end of the world.

Your problem is that you are seeing the end of the 13th baktun in a very ethnocentric way. It has been appropriated by the new agers and all the ridiculousness of "spiritual"anything or any change in humanity is simply not what the Mayans believed. It was the end of one baktun and the start of another. To the Mayans, this was the destruction and creation of the world. That's it. Anything else is new age flimflammery.

Besides, they couldn't even predict their own end and they were still recording things like eclipses that were to occur after the start of the 14th baktun. It was more like 1999 to 2000 was for us. No great anything, just a date change.

Time will tell.  Although at this particular moment a great change in humanities empathy for themselves or the world doesn't seem likely.

You say they failed to predict thier own end....so if they ended they're dead....so who's complaining?  Faux-mayans?

Nothing more than unsubstantiated garbage.
