The Mayans must surely be laughing at us. No, mocking us!

Seeing that today’s post modern generation has a rabid interest in ambiguity, the latest Mayan discovery has sent hordes of anxious young people spinning on their heads as the end of the world has become infinitely indeterminable. Surely the Mayans must have hidden this bit of calendar and then tweeted to themselves “LOL”! You see….

In a striking find, archaeologists in Guatemala report the discovery of a small building whose walls display not only a stunningly preserved mural of a brightly adorned Mayan king, but also calendars that destroy any notion that the Mayans predicted the end of the world in 2012.

These deep-time calendars can be used to count thousands of years into the past and future, countering pop-culture and New Age ideas that Mayan calendars ended on Dec. 21, 2012, (or Dec. 23, depending on who’s counting), thereby predicting the end of the world.

The newly found calendars, which track the motion of the moon, Venus and Mars, provide an unprecedented glimpse into how these storied sky-gazers — who dominated Central America for nearly 1,000 years — kept such accurate track of months, seasons and years.

It seems the Mayans were post modern too! Wait till the archeologists dig up the bit of calendar that had them all tweeting “ROFL”. 😉

    Ted: Bill dude, 2012 upside down is 5105…

    Bill: Correct Ted dude, and 5105 is like 5150…

    Ted: Correct Bill dude, and Van Halen has an album called 5150…

    Bill: Ted dude, do you know what this means?!

    Ted: Yes Bill dude, …it means Van Halen will headline the apocalypse…

    Bill: Excellent!
