ooohhh...Sounds scary and ominous with a sense of forboding. Actually, if you know anything about the Mayan Calendar, the year 2012 is not the end. The calendar merely resets itself. It has reset before, however this is supposed to be the last. There are many factors that are coincidental but pertanent. The solar system will align with the galactic equator. The electromagnetic poles of the Earth will shift (which according to the best minds is long overdue). Planet Nibiru flyby? Nah... I think it is a brown dwarf star attached to ours. Most stars are binary systems. Astronomers deny this but there is evidence that something has been seen. The Mayas daily life was the calendar. Thanks to the Conquistadors, and an over zelous priest we will probably never know the whole story..until it happens.
