21 December 2012 the end of the world 2012 predictions? Until a couple of years ago not be knew that many people were familiar with the end of the world 2012 prophecy that was presented by many scholars who have studied the end of the Mayan long calendar. This calendar’s long count has lasted five thousand one hundred twenty five years, and although the end of the calendar has been to many different interpretations, one of the most popular is the belief that at the end of this cycle of the world (or the existence of humanity) will reach an abrupt end on December 21, 2012. Will the world end in 2012? To fully understand the end of 2012 for the preaching of the world, then you must first understand the calendar that is in the center of this controversy. The current cycle, or baktun, this calendar was started on August 13, 3114 C this marked the end of the last period and the beginning of the current. The baktun we are currently living in the 13th, and the end of this cycle is that has been considered to have a high level of importance for the Mayan people, which is why so many people have come to the conclusion that this cycle’s end is that will mean the end of the world as we know it. Although there is not a definitive proclamation of how the end of the world 2012 will happen, those who have studied this assertion, are confident that the calendar was created in order to correspond with a prediction long-term astronomical by the Mayan people. This has led some to believe that this end of the world scenario will play in a way that has something to do with something beyond this world. Although this correlation to something that is happening in outer space is not a definitive thing, for some it’s a basic knowledge of the Mayan culture and its unique understanding of astronomical phenomena and planetary alignments.
