When reading this article about the mayan civilization and the believed ending of the world on December 21st some of it I had heard of in the past but some of it I was shocked about. I knew that the Mayans believed that the world was going to end in 2012 but I had no idea that they didn’t actually think it was ending they believed it was just the ending to one thing and the beginning of another stage in their life. It always thought that they saw it as the end of the world but really it seems that they see it as the end of one chapter and the beginning to another. One point that one of the daykeepers made was that even if they didn’t say it was going to be the end of the world, if the day came and went and nothing happened everyone would blame them and say they were wrong. No matter what they say or do people will always blame them if something does or doesn’t happen just because we misheard what they thought/think is going to happen in the future. The whole the world is going to end is something I think could happen but I am not going to sit around and freak out about every myth someone has or else I will never be able to live my life.


I like your point about how the Mayans just think the world is going to start another stage of life. I don’t think that people understand what the Mayans thought process, so to speak, on all the 2012 events are, and just rushed straight into panic mode.
