Seriously, Mayas were gone long before spanish invation. Those were the Aztecas, read a book (or wikipedia) before talking! And lastly, no apocalypse or **** , it's just the end of their calendar just as yours ends in dec/31.

Someone never took a history course.
The Spanish invaded the Aztec.
The Mayans "mysteriously" vanished years before Spanish even entered Americas

The Mayans weren't wiped out by the Spanish. That's the Aztecs retard. There are at least 88 competing theories about why the Mayan civilsation collapsed but none of them involve the Spanish. Wiki "Classic Maya collapse". Thumb down for you for historical inaccuracy.

Mayans didn't predict the end of the world, they just ran out of space on  their rock, so it just means its the end of a cycle. Technically, the last day should be a huge New Years Party.    
   
Why didn't they continue on another rock, you say? Well, why spend double the amount of effort  for extending a calendar far past the time anyone you'll ever know and love is already dead?

It's time for history class bitches!   
They did see them coming, the ghost Quetzalcoatl was predicted to come around the time the Spanish showed up. Quetzalcoatl was described as being a white ghost from the east. When the Spanish came, their leader was thought to be the eastern ghost. The only difference is that Quetzalcoatl was supposed to bring good luck and riches to the Mayans, but instead death and destruction came about.

Betcha they never predicted the Loch Ness Monsta either, did they?

The Mayans died out on their own hundreds of years before the Spanish came. The conquistadors wiped out the Aztec empire.

The Spanish destroyed the Aztecs.   
And you realize that they did predict the Spanish coming, right?   
As in down to the time of that year.   
Congratulations, you're a faggot. Not that there's anything wrong with it. Just letting everyone else see it too.
