If the world really was going to end tomorrow, do you think a government employee would really tell the truth? Think of the panic that would cause. He's just buying time to let the top secret rocket with all the world's leaders (or all the world's billionaires) get away safely. This story has been told in the movies over and over again.

Here's the reality of this stupid Mayan myth meme. The Mayan king in AD 696 visited allies after having lost a key battle, and, in trying to reassure them of his durability, associated his reign with the extreme length of the Mayan calendar. In saying that the world would end on 12/21/12, he was really just saying that his current reign was no more likely to end than was the world at the end of the Mayan calendar cycle.
There you have it; that's the first time I've gotten to the bottom of it, and I hope everyone spreads the truth so that all those inclined to worry, worry not.
