    While the Mayan calendar does end for some reason in 2012 [December I think], it is not mean to indicate the end of the world. Its actually is thought by some that the Mayans believed it simply indicated a change...some think they thought it would signify the ascension of man, or a period of new enlightenment.

    There is a Mayan temple that has some windows/skylight features that is supposedly designed to capture the light from the sun exactly once this alignment takes place in 2012 and they theorize it will actually cast a serpent shaped shadow down the stairs leading up to the temple. Now, while I am curious about all of this stuff and have no doubts this won't be some earth-ending event...I am highly impressed by a society that could predict a celestial alignment event that only happens every 26,000 years and be able to take into account some of the more elaborate astronomical considerations such as planetry wobble [precession] and such.

    I mean...how in the heck could they understand that way back then?

    Of course I still don't understand how the Nazca lines were pulled off either....

    Wouldn't Nibiru have to be close enough to see now if it was out there and coming? Thought that's what I read. Crazy planet x stuff :ha:

    Yes, you'd see it well before it was going to hit.

    Hell they can see an asteroid that may hit us in 30 or so years from now.

    Considering the size of the universe, how unlucky is a planet to be hit by something?

    It's like hitting an exact speck of dust from across the room.

    I think this is where Lil Wayne got his theory that the world was going to end, in 2012

    Happens all the time, actually. It's just unusual for the object to be big enough to make that big of an impact.
