Scientists and historians have refuted the claims that the end of the Mayan Calendar means the end of the world. Many argue that the Mayans had a cyclical sense of time, such that the end of the calendar merely signifies the end of one period, and the start of another, just like our modern day calendars.

In fact, most experts say that the Mayans did not have anything to say about the end of the world, an apocalypse on December 21, 2012, or the Winter Solstice.

Many doomsdayers, however, believe that the world will end on December 21, 2012. Some go as far as claiming the exact time – the exact time of the December solstice.

Because the Mayans did not predict the end of the world, we at timeanddate.com have used the predictions of some doomsdayers to set up our countdown.

Also, since the world can only end at one time, the time of the end of the world/ Mayan Calendar as shown by the Countdown is the same (11:11 AM UTC) for every part of the world.

If you see a different time for the end of the Maya Calendar in your city, it is because that is the time in your time zone when it will be 11:11 AM UTC on December 21, 2012.

Please note that we do not endorse any apocalyptic claims.
