One More Year: 2012 Mayan Apocalypse Countdown Starts TODAY!

by at . Comments

The countdown to the end of the world is ON, people.

We’re one year away from December 21, 2012, the date that the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar allegedly marked as the end of the world and humanity as we know it.

But will it? Guess we'll find out in 365 days.

Mayan Ruins

There have been many such proclamations - Christian radio guy Harold Camping botched two this year alone - but the Mayan prophecy seems to have the most clout.

The Mayan civilization, which reached its height from 300 A.D. to 900 A.D., had a talent for astronomy, as advanced mathematics and primitive astronomy flourished.

After creating allegedly the world's most accurate calendar, the Mayans predicted the world's end, marked by a solar shift, a Venus transit, violent earthquakes, etc.

Their Long Count calendar begins in 3,114 B.C., marking time in roughly 394-year periods known as Baktuns. The 13th, and FINAL, Baktun ends December 21, 2012.

Basically, we are beyond f*%ked. You heard it here. Enjoy your final Baktun, become a fan of THG on Facebook and help us break a million followers by that date!

Also, VOTE: Will the world end on 12/21/12?

@nicki I agree with you. But your comments isn't an opinion but a fact!! And my reason go google "Mayan calendar" and it will show you that the calendar is only ending a certain period and it starts again. Nothing is going to happen to earth. God loves us soo much so why would he want to destroy us.
Another thing scientist are circling the asteroid that claims to hit earth. And many pictures of the asteroid has being sent back to earth. It appears to be that the asteroid looks like another planet!!!! I'm not a scientist but I have my contacts!!!!!

I don't think it will unless an asteroid hits us or us humans destroy it ourselves. God will not destroy the wold. I believe in science and many people argue there's no God. And yes there are many religions in the world who predict the world will end t different times, so the Mayans may not be correct. But then again, that's just my opinion.

Jeez no one knows when the world is going to end. Jesus said it himself. And future more Mayans aren't even a real religion because if they were they would know that after the end of the calendar it starts again. Go google it and you'd find out. After many years the calendar starts again for them. And btw Mayan is only one religion. What about all the other religions and their beliefs. Christians believe in the second coming. Hindus believe in born again into something else. And muslims believe in Jihad. So basically Mayan is just another religion that doesn't have correct knowledge about their calendar!!!!!!
