Okay, everyone “knows” that the Mayans have predicted the end of the world. According to Wikipedia, the premiere source of all 100% factual and reliable information on the internet:

According to the Popol Vuh, a book compiling details of creation accounts known to the K’iche’ Maya of the Colonial-era highlands, we are living in the fourth world.[29] The Popol Vuh describes the first three creations that the gods failed in making and the creation of the successful fourth world where men were placed. In the Maya Long Count, the previous creation ended at the start of a 14th b’ak’tun.

The previous creation ended on a long count of 12.19.19.17.19. Another 12.19.19.17.19 will occur on December 20, 2012, followed by the start of the 14th b’ak’tun, 13.0.0.0.0, on December 21, 2012.[n 7] There is only one reference to the current creation’s 13th b’ak’tun in the fragmentary Mayan corpus: Tortuguero Monument…

Only man and his ego believes he has a divine right to survival.

    • I just don’t believe in any of the prophetic crap regarding the Mayans, just like I don’t believe the prophetic doomsday warnings of the established religions.

      On another note, my money is on us getting wiped out by a virus, just like in Contagion. That, or the lovely “supervolcano” beneath Yellowstone, but I think the safe bet is still global pandemic. In the words of T.S. Eliot: “this is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends, not with a bang but with a whimper.” Slightly paraphrasing the last part, but you get the idea.
