Hundreds of millions of people around the world with confidence refer to the secret knowledge of the ancient Mayan calendar which amounted to the end of 2012, predicted the offensive end of the world. Apocalypse in the current year is waiting for every ten people on the planet, according to The Global Post in the "News, which you do not want to know."

We add that the calendar of the Maya civilization in Mesoamerica, the heyday of which goes to I millennium BC, covers 5000 125 years. It is rated up to 21 December 2012. Some people believe that after that, according to the beliefs of Indians, comes to an end. Others tend to think that the Mayan calendar just too lazy to make up for a longer time.
In the 2012 calendar commentators predicted a number of disasters that could put an end to the Earth. One of them — a global parade of planets, in which Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and Earth are visually line up in one line, which supposedly can lead to disastrous consequences. Many believe that the transition period could be a change of the Earth's poles, and the electromagnetic field of the planet, "off" for about three days — and as people closely related to the field of the Earth, may disrupt the physiology and "zeroed" memory.
In early 2011, Mexican researchers published a study that claimed that any Mayan predictions about the end of the world does not exist in principle. According to them, the Indians have calculated their calendar before December 21, 2012, but never pointed at him, after that the world will end. Calendar just ended, and all. In this case, the Maya followed the theory that "history repeats itself at some point," after which the countdown begins again.
