Mayan apocalypse isn’t what it used to be

Science Technology

What if you threw an apocalypse and nobody showed up?

A critique in a new textbook argues that the supposed Mayan-predicted doomsday of Dec. 21, 2012, is off by as much as 50-100 years, due to possible a miscalculation in the conversion from the Mayan calendar to the modern Gregorian system.

So, the good news is that the world isn’t ending in just over a year from now. The bad news is that no one is really sure when it will end now.
