Don’t worry, the world is not going to end on the 21st, unless Athens decides to withdraw from the Euro Zone.
As far as the Mayan calendar, one of several (the oldest discovered earlier this year), is concerned, scholars has always pointed out that they represent a ‘cycle of time’ e.g.,
The calendar was last reset in August 3114 B.C and the world did not end then – thus each cycle lasts 1,872,000 days and then is reset again. it is important to note that the all the calendars make no reference to the end of the world, but highlight a new age and good times (putting it simply).
But just to be sure i am cancelling my haircut on the 22nd.
I would make sure I go out early after the end of the world and check to see if I’m in the Daily Telegraph obituaries page. :-? If I’m not then it didn’t happen. That would be a relief !!!
And Gerald, do take a photo of your sunset and post it in ‘crete sunsets’ would you. ;D
