For the ten percent of the world population who believes the world end end according to the Mayan calendar, you may want to make plans for 2013. For months, experts have been saying that this is simply hogwash. Now the oldest-known version of the ancient Maya calendar has been discovered in ruins of a city deep in the Guatemalan rainforest and it shows, as previously said, that the Mayans not only believes life would go on past 2012 but would continue for centuries and centuries.
The hieroglyphs, painted in black and red, appear to have been used as a reference chart for court scribes in A.D. 800. Archaeologist David Stuart of the University of Texas said
“The Mayan calendar is going to keep going for billions, trillions, octillions of years into the future.”
