    Mayan calendar did not include the leap year.
    As far as I can tell:
    Caesar created leap years in 45 B.C.
    There has been about 514 leap years since then,
    which would make it like 6 or 7 months ago.
    But then I don't think the world will end just because a calender does.
    My calender at home ends at the end of every year but I don't panic! : )

    If the Mayans were still around they'd just be making a new calendar.
    Why anyone thinks arbitrary numbers assigned to mark the passing of time have any significance is beyond me.
    If I make a new calendar and declare today the 1/1/1 will something significant happen ?

    Lol...why should the earth end on the 21st anyway? The Mayans were just a primitive people. How could they possibly predict the end sooo many years ago?

    Its kinda funny seeing that they never actuly predicted the end of the world at this date, its simply just a cycle in their calander much like the year or month but obviously alot longer.

    I think we should be more worried about the year 7600002012 as scientist predict the sun will engulf the earth in 7.6 billion years.

    But really... world ending... No. 2012 ending.... Of course as did the 2011 years before this one... (and years prior JC).

    A calender is like a colander without the "o"?
