Experts: Mayan predicted stuff, but not the end of the world

Mayan experts reaffirmed that fears over the end of world this December 21 are unfounded. At a meeting of scientists who specialize in Mayan culture Friday, most agreed that Mayan prophecies were extensive, yet none predicted the end of the world. …

It is still unclear how the apocalyptic visions were attributed to the Mayans but experts said that it was likely the influence of Christian thought, which has been linked to similar predictions.

The Daily Aztec reported that the predictions resurfaced recently with the 2006 book by Daniel Pinchbeck, “2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl,” which claimed the Mayas predicted that 2012 would end in death and destruction. Needless to say, the story was subsequently picked up by Hollywood producers and the rest was pseudo-history.

Indeed, the number 2012 does surface in Mayan carvings, say experts, but never as the year the world would end, said the Daily Mail.
