This is my theory, which is mine*:
The Mayans did not predict the end of the World,
they just got heavily into recycling and stone tablets were non-renewable.
(What? Keep your shirt on. I’m comin’ to that.)
As I was a-sayin’, they got heavily into recycling, so the plan was to use the same calendars but they’d count backward this time. They could then re-use the stone tablets forever!
(What? Well, yeah, or they could start back at the beginning and keep a log of which cycle they were on. You know, add another digit on the left side of the ol’ odometer. Hey, it was a good plan until the Conquistadors showed up.)
* You all know the Monty Python cultural ref, so I don’t need to add the link.
