What is the Mayan Calendar - The long Count and how is it related to 2012?
The Mayan Calendar, or as so often called the Aztec Calendar, is recorded as a carving on the Aztec "sun stone," It is more complex than the Gregorian Calendar we adopt, it's actually three calendars in one: the Religious Calendar, the Solar Calendar and the Long Count Calendar.
In fact, in relation to 2012, there are two major factors to examine: the long Count and the End of the Great Cycle. According to experts, the Long count or more importantly the end of this long count is based on:
- Eight (8) bakatuns
- Three (3) katuns
- Two (2) tuns
- Ten (10) uinals
- Fifteen (15) days
They assume that the end of this long Count will see the end of what is known as the Great Cycle. This time period coincides with December 21, 2012.

Some Mayan archeologists say that there are writings that refer to the descent of a Maya God Hunab Ku at that time period. In short, the end of this long Count and the End of the Great Cycle come to indicate December 21, 2012 as the end. Is it the end of the Mayan Calendar or the end of the world?
