Mayan Calendar - Dooms Day Prediction

I read an article on this the other day and didn't think to much of it. I thought of it as just a bunch of hype.

Ends up that I was right. Tim Jones on Jimmy Akin blog sets the record straight.

You know, I've always thought, even before I was a Catholic, that if you want to find out what Christians believe and why, you ought to ask Christians before you take too much to heart what is said about their beliefs by critics or cranks or even professors.
I have come to apply that same approach to the beliefs of other groups, as well. So, for instance, if I want to know what Buddhists believe, I favor asking Buddhists, rather than some expert in comparative religions who studies Buddhists like insects pinned to a card.
The same courtesy ought to be extended to the modern descendants of the Maya, who would like to make it very clear that they - none of them - are lying awake nights wondering if the world will end in 2012. Not according to
this AP article from Yahoo News, anyway.
