Did you know scientists finally figured out what went wrong in the Mayan doomsday prophecies?

Asked by ETpro (34247 points ) January 2nd, 2013

Archeologists had misinterpreted certain glyphs in the Mayan carvings and that led to the failed Dec. 21st 2012 doomsday claim. Actually, as the most recent work discolses we were just reading the glyphs incorrectly. After reinterpreting the carvings in light of the newest findings, how close do you think those Ancients came?

…and the new doomsday falls on a Tuesday. What kind of world ends on Tuesday?

We just didn’t recognize Santa Claus without his clothes on, I guess.

@ETpro Nice. I love theonion.com If the onion was for real, they’d be (to quote “My Cousing Vinny”) “Dead on balls accurate.”

@Self_Consuming_Cannibal Ain’t it the truth. It’s a Mad Mad World when humorous fiction it truer than the news.

What? I thought they discovered another chamber below that contradicted the readings from the first chamber. Ok, I didn’t watch the video so sorry if I just said something stupid. : )

@ETpro Ha ha…that video explains it all quite thoroughly. Thanks. I knew those Mayans discovered and drank and/or sniffed strong substances other than chocolate or coffee. : )
