Mayan Calendar Proved Incomplete
Mayan 2012 End of World Predictions Shortsighted Due to Technology Limitations
As the attached JPEG shows, the last date is 40 years after January 1, 1988, or December 31, 2027. This ingenious faux-marble and copper-colored tin disk is a fully functional 40-year calendar. It was accidentally discovered during the last century in a San Francisco gift shop and represents the high-water mark for stone-disk End-of-World calender-based forecasting. The esteemed international historian and Biblical scholar Dr. Cerah Palynn said, "We've long suspected the Mayan 2012 prediction was less than accurate and in fact may have ended in 2012 only because the ancient Mayan astronomers chiseling away at the circular stone calender simply ran out of room to chisel years in 2013 to 2027."
The Reverend Ted Haggard, founder of the New Life Church, stated, "Every generation believed they were the last generation and the end was coming soon. I guess the discovery of this new stone calender gets the baby boomer generation off the hook. Now it's up to the slacker generation to further extend doomsday."
