so dec. 21, 2012, according to the mayan calender, is the day the world is going to end. this is the date that the mayan calender ends, and the world along with it. well, not any longer. breaking news! the end of the world has been postponed.
a new textbook, “Calendars and Years II: Astronomy and Time in the Ancient and Medieval World” (one of my favorite books ever, by the way) has argued that the conversions from mayan to the modern calender may be off as much as 50 to 100 years. so the 2012 apocalypse is off by several decades, so what!?
so…i guess the Lord really does come like a thief in the night, huh? imagine that.
hey blog buddies, before the world ends hit me up on facebook or twitter! thanks.
