Why the Mayan calendar says the world would end in 2012? I heard they were quite accurate in the past in relation to other predictions related to the planets. How can you be sure that you know more than they knew? Calendars are to watch over (move) time, rather than for predicting the future. Astronomers of the ancient Maya were smart, so they invented a very sophisticated calendar. Ancient calendars of interest to historians, but they can not comply with modern features, that we have to keep track of the time, nor does it have the precision of which have modern calendar, we now enjoy. However, the fact that calendars, whether modern or ancient, can not able to predict the future of our planet or to warn of what will happen in a particular day, for example, in 2012. I note that my desk calendar comes to an end much earlier, on December 31, 2009, but I do not take it as a prediction of Armageddon.
This is just the beginning of the year. 10. What is the theory of displacement of the poles? Is it true that the crust makes a 180 degree turn around the core in a matter of days if not hours? Does it affect on what's happening in our solar system dipping below the galactic equator? Changing the direction of rotation of the Earth is impossible. This has never happened and never will. Place more slowly movement of continents (for example, Antarctica was near the equator hundreds of millions of years ago), but it bears no relation to applications for change of the poles of rotation.
