December 21st, 2012 is the end of the Mayan calendar. The Mayans were better astrologers and all sorts of other mumbo-jumbo than the rest of the world at the time of their existence. They made quite a few predictions (pretty vague, but not Nostradamus vague) that came true. In the past they had calendars that went through several cycles and it was a more accurate calendar than ours. Now, their calendar ends on December 21st, 2012. People (anthropologists, historians, etc.) wonder why their calendar ends then, of all dates. They also have found a lot of Mayan hieroglyphs that relate to the return of their god, Quetzalcoatl. So, it has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CHRISTIAN ARMAGEDDON. You can't relate the two.
