Mankind has long been fascinated with Doomsday and hundreds of thousands of predictions have been made about the end of our world. While most of these are associated with the Second Coming of Christ, the focus is now on the Maya Civilization of Southern Mexico and the end of their calendar on the Winter Solstice: December 21, 2012.
