The Mayans Were Wrong!

That’s what I am seeing a lot around the web these days, now that the 21st has passed and the planet Earth is still standing.

But hold the phone.

The Mayans never said the world was going to end on December 21st, 2012. That was entirely our interpretation. As I mentioned before about the other calculations for the End-Date based on correlations done by people who were not G, M, or T.

Even the end-date correlation favored by Linda Schele (the 23rd of December, 2012) has already passed without a whimper.

All this means is that the correlations we have made are in error. Our calculations for the end date are wrong, not the Mayans.

Of course, that does not mean that the Mayans were not wrong about the ending of their calendar but only that our correlation for it is off. Perhaps we should research the thing a little bit more and come up with a better correlation before we claim the Mayans were wrong.

It may still come to pass, some future day, and we’ll be able to better correlate their calendar – or see if they were really wrong.

Until then, the world continues as it has and – more importantly – the Sun continues as it has for some five thousand years.

If nothing changes in that regard, then the Mayans were wrong.

For now, the only ones wrong were us.

    ” Yeah..relief..21st Dec,2012 has passed without a happening. Mayans may be correct in calculations..but we are not..we are not sure of how many times World Calendars have been or adjusted and from when. The present Calendar is not in a position to synchronise with Mayans because of multiple Cosmetic change of Dates and Calendars. The Sidereal concept should have been appilied for the celestial observations not for World Calendars.
    May be we are 100 years ahead of actual time.
    Maya had set of genuine system as per ancient practice but now we have a out of orbit calendars.

      Absolutely!
      Maybe someone will be able to find a new and better correlation but I think it is probably a lost cause. We have fiddled with the systems for far too long.
