Misinterpretation of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar was the basis for a popular belief that a cataclysm would take place on December 21, 2012. December 21, 2012 was simply the day that the calendar went to the next b'ak'tun, at Long Count 18.104.22.168.0. The date on which the calendar will go to the next piktun (a complete series of 20 b'ak'tuns), at Long Count 22.214.171.124.0.0, will be on October 13, 4772.
The Mayans never said the world was going to end in 2012. According to Mayan cultural expert Dr. David Stuart of the University of Austin, their calendars actually account for time and prophesied events far into the future: “The Maya calendar not only doesn’t end, but it keeps going for eons and eons beyond 2012,” Dr. Stuart tells EarthSky. Another name for the Long Count is the Great Cycle, the operative word here being cycle.
Quetzalcoatl ain't got time for that.

Apparently, the Mayans Long Count calender keep their dates from 0 to 19. So, the next calender is on March 26, 2407 which I doubt humanity will ever live to "celebrate" it i.e. panicked like their great-great-great-great-ancestors do when the calender resets on December 21 2012.

Quote Of The Moment:
I knew the world wouldn't end. I find it funny when people say they are happy to survive. But there was nothing to survive, because nothing happened. xD
What a waste. All this attention for some doomsday could've been diverted to helping the world.
If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.
