We’ve Been Punk’d, But Not By The Mayans

December 22, 2012

Mayan-PunkIf you’re reading this, the world did not end on December 21st. Don’t blame the Mayans because we punk’d ourselves. Recent archaeological discoveries have proven that when the Mayan “long calendar” (5,126 years long) ends on 12-21-2012, a new long calendar begins. This is like when our current calendar ends on 12-31-2012, a new calendar begins on 01-01-2013. Another analogy would be when your car’s odometer rolls over from 999,999 miles to 000001. The car (if it made it that far) doesn’t necessarily cease to exist, it just begins another cycle.

There’s something intrinsic within the human psyche that causes us to want to believe in doomsday theories and, when they don’t come true, we somehow feel a little disappointed. Be of good cheer, however. Just because the end of the world didn’t coincide with the end of the current Mayan long calendar doesn’t mean that the end is not coming soon. Considering the disastrous condition of the 21st century world, the end could come anytime now… probably slowly with a whimper, rather than mercifully with a bang. Happy New Year!
