Emily Do you think the end is coming?

Some day. But do I think the Maya made predictions towards that end...? Absolutely not.

I've been asked to turn a classroom presentation on the Maya calendar into a video to be archived in the PAR department for future classes. The gist of it is that with so many incredible and factual achievements in art, math, astronomy, and architecture, to focus on a co-opted made-up prophecy of apocalyptic doom, is an act of cultural eradication on a part of the modern Western world toward a "primitive" ancient peoples. :)

Emily Wow, congratulations! I personally think they ran out of stone to write on and then were attacked to the Spanish and never got back to the predictions.
