I do believe the world will end in 2012. For liberals. November 6, 2012 to be exact.
Mexico archaeologists acknowledge 2nd Mayan reference to 2012
Mexico’s archaeology institute downplays theories that the ancient Mayas predicted some sort of apocalypse would occur in 2012, but on Thursday it acknowledged that a second reference to the date exists on a carved fragment found at a southern Mexico ruin site.
Most experts had cited only one surviving reference to the date in Mayan glyphs, a stone tablet from the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.
But the National Institute of Anthropology and History said in a statement that there is in fact another apparent reference to the date at the nearby Comalcalco ruin. The inscription is on the carved or molded face of a brick. Comalcalco is unusual among Mayan temples in that it was constructed of bricks.
Arturo Mendez, a spokesman for the institute, said the fragment of inscription had been discovered years ago and has been subject to thorough study. It is not on display and is being kept in storage at the institute.

That’s a bad bet altogether, either way you lose your money 🙂
Can you double down on that bet?
hindu reckoning about ‘doomsday’- the end of the Kali Yuga ( a terrible age of violence, avarice, dishonesty, depraved leadership, injustice, and the denigration of the feminine principle or the obama administration’s term in offcie so far)- is only 11 years off of the Mayan projection – an entire continent away.
but civilizations die and pass away- each has it’s own ‘doomsday’ in effect. it should make us ever aware of the facts of history: that societies destroy themselves-it’s their own doing. injustice and the disregard of the rule of law destroys from within-in individuals and entire countries. there are few known religions that have not had and do not have a judgement day/end of the world scenario . no state can endure an endemic corrosion and abuse of it’s laws or the widespread corruption and greed of its leaders. the hindus in particular point out the abuses of political leadership as being telling that the end could be near.
