Following the recent release of the film 2012, staring John Cusak, there has been an increased interest in the theory that the world will end on 21st December 2012. There have also been several books that have been written on the subject such as:
2012 The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck
Beyond 2012: Catastrophe or Awakenings? By Geoff Stray and John Major Jenkins
Apocalypse 2012: An Investigation Into Civilisations End by Lawrence E Joseph
The basis that the world will end on 21st December 2012 has stemmed from the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar, whereby the 13th b’ak’tun ends.
