Why didn't the world end in 2012?

The Mayan calender said the world was to end. But it didn't. Why?

  • No the calendar didn't say it would end. It was just the fact that the calendar just stopped at 2012 and people wrongly assumed that it meant the end of the world.

    • As well if i may. The Mayan calendar does not match up to our own since ours are based off of the Roman calendar. The Mayan calendars actually ended before 2012 came.

  • Maybe the secret government via "Torchwood" put a stop to it, or maybe "The Doctor" stopped it. Who the hell knows? It was merely a myth, prophecy or something stupid, predicted by some idiot (s)

  • because
    1. actually the calendar didn't end in 2012
    2. no one said that the world will end when the calendar ends... and even if someone did, why would that be the case?

  • so somebody in the past made a calender that was supposed to go for "ever" so they made one that would go far beyond their livetime so that it seemed forever to them. we are just so stupid to assume the world would end, when this calender happened to end in the time of our lives.

  • Because in the Mayan tradition, the world wasn't supposed to end. The cycle was supposed to start over.

  • The Mayan calendar STOPPED in 2012... that's not the same thing as suggesting to people that the end of the world was 2012. Maybe they just decided to stop there because that tribe of people were moving somewhere else? Maybe they all got sick and died before they finished it? Maybe the never intended to continue to go past 2012 because they found a different calendar they preferred?
