A Mayan scholar is claiming that the end of the Mayan calendar is actually going to occur between 3rd -4th June, 2016, saying that experts had the original December 2012 date wrong.
The end of the calendar is thought to mark the end of a 5,126-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, which many believed would see a New Age of positive spiritual transformation on Earth and the beginning of a new era. Some also thought the 21 December 2012 date marked the end of the world.
The ‘end of the world’ theory was apparently debunked when the 2012 date came and went four years ago. However, an expert believes that the calculations that previous scholars used to arrive at that date were completely wrong.
According to a user on the website Godlikeproductions.com:
There is a 1260 day difference between the calendars! The Julian Calendar vs. the Egyptian calendar and Maya Haab’ Calendar.
The Julian Calendar is 365.25 days which accounts for leap years.
The Gregorian Calendar is 365.2425 days which accounts for leap years as well.
The Egyptian and the Maya Haab Calendar don’t account for leap years! Thus, the Egyptian and Maya Haab Calendar is 365 days!
And Dec. 21st, 2012 plus 1260 days = June 3rd/4th, 2016
There just so happens to be a perfect square grand cross alignment on June 4th, 2016.
I will show you more how June 4th, 2016 is actually Dec. 21st, 2012 and that June 4th, 2016 could be the true end of the Mayan Calendar later.
The numbers and proof I will show will be crystal clear!
August 11th, 3114 BC (Gregorian) = Sept 6th, 3114 BC (Julian)
and the end of the Mayan Long Count or the 13 baktuns which are 144,000 days each =
Dec. 21st, 2012 (Gregorian) = Dec 8th, 2012 (Julian)
Both the Gregorian and Julian calendars account for leap years. That is why the Gregorian is 365.2425 solar year and the Julian calendar is 365.25 solar year. That means, every 4 years or .25 + .25 +.25 +.25 = 1 leap year.
But the Mayan calendar didn’t account for leap years. It had the solar Haab calendar, which was 365 solar days.
The Real Deal: How the Mayan Calendar Works
“The second calendar was the Haab’, or secular calendar, which lasted 365 days but did not account for the extra quarter-day it takes the Earth to revolve around the sun. (The modern calendar accounts for this fraction by adding a day to February every four years, the reason we have leap years.) That means the calendar wandered a bit in relation to the seasons.”

So researchers trying to figure out the Mayan calendar end date end up using a calendar, both the Julian and Gregorian, which include leap years and the Mayan Haab solar calendar doesn’t???? Now that doesn’t make any sense to try to calculate the true end date!!!
And there is more to this….
The baktun is 144,000 days.
There are 13 baktuns in the Mayan Calendar.
144,000 days x 13 baktuns = 1,872,000 solar days
Now the Gregorian calendar solar year is 365.2425
The Julian calendar solar year is 365.25
The Haab Mayan calendar solar year is 365
1,872,000 days/365.2425 (Gregorian solar year) = 5125.36 years
1,872,000 days/365.25 (Julian solar year) = 5125.256 years
and then here is the big difference….
1,872,000 days/365 (Haab solar year) = 5128.76 years
Subtract 5128.76 years (Haab) from 5125.256 years (Julian) =
=3.504 year difference and that makes 1260 days
