        Do We Want the World to End? | PBS Idea Channel

        The so-called Mayan long count calendar predication of the 2012 apocalypse was based on a fundamental misunderstanding of Mayan calendars and of society. It was so far off base that scientific and anthropological experts could dismiss it with a laugh. Yet, if it was so fundamentally wrong, why did we keep hearing about it? Why were there movies, news casts, and websites dedicated to this non-event? Watch the episode to find out, and tell us what you think!
