Some very interesting points there. Couldnt it be possibe that the Mayan just thought "we have to end the calander somewhere, why not there? We'll all be dead by then anyway."

The mayan calendar is based on precise astronomical measurments made by their pyramids (the steps provided a standard from which to measure) and actually has a starting date which begins 3114 BC... They didn't just randomly pick it. Actaually even armageddon as believed by the followers of christ is not a dooms day, but rather a re-birth of humanity.... I think this strongly agrees with the mayan inte... [More]
