I’m sorry, I’ve got to say this: It’s twaddle.

I wrote my undergraduate thesis on pre-conquest Latin American culture and the impact of the Spaniards, particularly on the Aztecs, but they believed that the world had ‘ages’ and no Mayan said the world as a whole would end tonight. Apart from which, whose ‘midnight’ are we talking about? And isn’t ‘midnight’ a very convenient time considering that they didn’t have clocks…?
