The Mayans recorded dates past 2012. Their calender did not end on 2012. They never said anything major would happen in 2012.

I'm pretty sure there is no Mayan prophecy that states the world will end in 2012, that's just when their calendar was expected to roll over. It's like the odometer in a car, it just is the beginning of a new cycle.

There's a stack of calenders at work, it goes up to 2010. The end is near!

It’s nice to know we have something to look forward to! Some people have grandiose preconceived notions of impending doom, no wonder there are a bunch of sorry miserable people hanging about. Self-fulfilling prophecy is a bitch. It’s just a date, like 1914 when the Jehovah Witnesses freaked thinking the world was coming to an end or all the hoopla over 2000, yeah (scary…not).

It didn't end, it started over. Like ours does every year. That doesn't mean that every new years serious shit goes down, does it? I probably won't do anything different, maybe notice and start messing with my friends. But that's about it.

2012 could mean anything, maybe it's preparation for aliens visiting our planet again (maybe they did in the past and the Mayans created the calendar to tell us). The possibilites of what could happen are endless.

People have claimed the world would end in 1899, 1900, 1999, 2000, and more recently, the 6th of June 2006.
Just because the calender of an ancient civilization, that just happened to be the geniuses of their time, ends doesn't mean a meteor is going to smash into the sun and cause it to somehow turn into a supernova or black hole.
Just like the Gregorian calender has ends on each millenium, the Mayan long count calender has/had ends too.

They may have been smart, but they weren't seers. They didn't predict the Spanish landing, or their eventual demise(or sort of demise). So no, I don't believe in 2012 prophecies. That doesn't keep me from being fascinated by the theories.
And last I heard, the Mayans even celebrated the day.

2012 is not the end of the Mayan Calender.

The current Mayan calender age began August 31st 3114BC. The current Mayan calender age ends on the Winter Solstice, December 21st 2012. IIRC this is based on the long count calender.

According to the Mayan's we end one cycle and will begin a new cycle.

Hopi Indian prophecy says that the white man will engage in a great war which will kill many. It will be a time of purification and renewal.

Then there are also the people saying the dwarf star Wormwood woll fly by earth and cause a great upheavel and a third of the earth will be incinerated. Accompanying Wormwood is supposed to be the planet Nibiru. So far there has no proof that Nibiru exists. Some people are saying people in the southern hemisphere can see a bright star at morning on the horizon but I have never heard anyone confirm this so at this point its all rumour.

I think if something as large as a sun was hurtling towards us, we would know about it by now. And isnt Nibiru the planet thats supposed to have the lizard people on it? The Illuminati lizard people that Jeff & Eddie was ranting about a few years ago?
