On the date of December 21, 2012 a mystery awaits us. This mystery has been set into motion by the Mayan's long count calender. This calender lasts for 5,000 years making it end in December 2012. In this month on the 21st the sun will align with the milkyway's equator. Then the calender will start over again from day 0. In conclusion the mayans were not predicting the end of the actual world but instead a replacement with a new one.
