Today, probably only a child does not know about the Mayan calendar. Some people think that this is fiction, but some believe it to madness, but somehow this calendar really is. Mayan calendar combined calendar just three. Religious, consisting of 260 days, solar – 365 days and the calendar “weeks”, consisting of 13 days. Each date in the calendar had its purpose and how on any given day could affect the destiny of the people.
Mayan calendar itself is very old he is already 5125.36 years, but despite this, he amazingly accurate. For comparison, to cite one example, modern scholars have calculated that the duration of the solar year is 365.24 days, Maya found that date too, and it amounted to 365, 242 days. And it is worthy of respect and admiration.
In his description of the life of the Maya indicate that since the creation of life on earth was 4 cycles, or as they call 4 “Sun”. During this period, replaced by four human race. “First Sun” closed the earthquake, the second – hurricanes, the third rain of fire from the craters of volcanoes, and a fourth – a flood. Now is the time “of the Fifth Sun” and end this period the movement of planets. This period should, according to the predictions of the Maya, will end Dec. 21, 2012. So whether it will or not, time will tell, but it is worth recalling that it was this civilization, has never made a mistake in the predictions.
