Mayan calendar ends on March 31, 2013...
February 11, 2013 - I am deeply wearied by the proliferation of the lie that the Mayan Calendar ended in 2012. Rather than making a long, exasperated (and exasperating) argument debunking the lie, I'm just going to point out one simple thing:
The end of a calendar must be the last day of the calendar, otherwise, the calendar has not ended. Oct. 3rd is not the end of the Gregorian Calendar, nor is Sept. 25th or Nov. 17th. The end of the Gregorian Calendar is Dec. 31st. However, this simple principle is grossly disregarded in the banter about the end of the Mayan Calendar.
The Mayan Calendar being bandied about is called "the Tzolkin". In and of itself, the Tzolkin encompasses a 260 day cycle. The last day of the Tzolkin's cycle is called "13 Ahau". If it ends on 12.21.2012, that date should correspond with 13 Ahau.
Make's sense right? If it's not at the end of the cycle it happens to be transiting at that time, then it can't be the end of the Calendar; right? Well, the date of 12.21.2012 corresponds to the Tzolkin date of 4 Ahau; 4 Ahau is the 160th day, not the 260th.
13 Ahau is 100 DAYS AFTER 12.21.12 - March 31, 2013; 03.31.13!!! -- THAT's the day we need to ponder relative to the end of the Tzolkin['s 5200-year Great Cycle] and the beginning of the subsequent Great Cycle, its first 20 years in particular.
Since 03.31.13 is the real end [260th day] of that particular cycle of the Tzolkin, 12.21.2012 simply CANNOT be the end of the Mayan Calendar! The Tzolkin is pure logic; the argument that 12.21.2012 was the end of it's cycle is simply illogical. It just makes no sense; it's nonsense
All those who are claiming to be experts and pushed the 12.21.2012 illusion are not in it for Truth's sake; effectively, they promoted a lie.
