OMG the unifying theory of bullshit metaphysic loonies and crackpots! they have managed to link the mayans, the christian bible, astrophysics, astronomy, and random thoughts into one coherent mess.

He must be a very great scientist, with so many computers on his desk.
in his studio apartment...

Every time I hear about the mayan calendar I want to punch someone in the face.

Get ready to repent heathens. Don't get left behind. 2012 approaches, and everything from Revelations is coming true.

I can't wait to start hearing the crazy theories coming out when these people catch up to the fact that we're in 2 galaxies combining.
or theory rather.
More than two. The Milky way has several smaller galaxies in various stages of digestion.
If you meant M31, it and the Milky Way are combining in the future tense of the word, as in "are falling toward each other and will eventually combine," but the two won't intersect for many billions of years and it will take many billions after that to finish the job. The Sun will go out long before it really starts.
Space is really, really big.

Because this is exactly what happened the last time.

That's it, I'm cashing out my IRA and 401k to buy hookers and blow.

The mayans discoveries were eerily similar to modern scientists, not pleasantly, not vaguely, not coincidentally, they were eerily similar!

this kind of stuff reminds me of that episode of Babylon 5 where they had some crazy christians talking about the end times, and it kind of depressed me because it's the one thing about the show that seemed like a realistic portrayal of the future.

Listen fellas. I don't buy into the doomsday BS any more than you, but if you look through the "Repent, sinners" and "THIS IS TOTALLY WHAT CHRISTIANITY IS TALKING ABOUT GUYS K THX", then this is actually pretty interesting. I mean if the Mayan calendar really does sync up with passing through the galactic plane, maybe we won't feel any effects, but it's kind of a once-in-a-lifetime event we would be living through anyway. Like when Bush won the 2004 elections. Or the 2000.
Anything that could be said to be the "galactic plane" will take hundreds of thousands of years to cross, it's not like one second you're on one side or it and a second later you're on the other. Not a "once in a lifetime" event, more like "once in a species" event.
The Mayans did not invent calculus before Newton and didn't beat Einstein to general relativity by several centuries, either. They hadn't quite got the wheel figured out, let alone celestial mechanics.
