    Dec 21 2012 Mayan calendar day already far back?

    With a new book, Pope Benedict XVI released few days ago, hes saying (scientists say exactly the same) Jesus was born 7 or 8 years befor what is nowdays knows as Jesus birth day. Doesn't that mean those 7-8 years of time was counted twice, so due to that fact, mayan 21.12.2012 already passed 7-8 years ago?

    All doomsday predictions are 100% retarded. According to predictions, the World has already ended at least 50 times just in this decade.

    This is new? We've known for a few centuries that the Christian calendar was a few years off.

    So like, up until a few days ago, have you been worried?

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Not exactly a trustworthy source. We've only been using our current calendar system since the 16th century anyway, not to mention nothing is going to happen on December 21st.

    I wonder, are there people out there somewhere who fear the world will end every Dec 31st when their current calendar runs out of days and they have to buy a new one? That's effectively what this nonsense is based on!

    Scientists and Christians believing the same thing? That's more likely to end the world.

    Scientists don't believe in Jesus in the first place, why would they say 'exactly the same thing'
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    What are you talking about, Jesus wasn't a made up person. He really was alive, whether or not he was the son of God.

    just to clear it, i never did and never will believe in Maya prediction, i just wanna prove others who still believe in it that world will clearly not end on 21.12.2012.

    Not really, there's no evidence at all except, well, you know...literary works.

    Closed.

    We really don't need another thread to discuss the Mayan doomsday scenario, especially not one relating to Jesus's birthday. (Forbidden Topic if you didn't know)
