The Mayans themselves do not believe that their ancestors' calendar predicts the end of the world literally.
So why are so many people freaked out about it in our culture???

I think it simply cuz it has been 13 years since Y2K... people have nothing better to do (apparently!!) than fuss about something they cannot change even if it is true.. bet these same people don't recycle and drive SUVs and don't believe in man caused global warming... lol

Only people that don't understand Mayan culture are freaking... Which in a country where ignorance is a way of life, that means a lot of people! There is no reason to believe that the Mayan calendar has anything to do with the end of the world in a literal sense... Every religion has their beliefs about how the world began and how it will end... Many Norse paths teach that a wolf will eat the moon... Do you think they ever believed a giant wolf was coming to eat the moon? No, it's a metaphor... Just as this and any other end of the world religious tradition is.
