    Interestingly if you want to see where we are on the old Julian Calender ask your Eastern Orthodox friends they still use it for religious purposes.

    Personally I am going to stick to the Mayan calender, its just more fun wheels with wheels all spinning and spinning. The end of the thirteenth baktun coming up should be interesting.

    For those of you interested in calendar stuff, here is the next revolution: http://www.theworldcalendar.org/Index.htm

    Could there possibly be a standardized annual calendar on the horizon?

    Good luck with that. As soon as you get the religious fanatics to give up their calenders let me know.

    After 2012 it won't matter if we follow the Mayan one as it ends in 2012. BUT if we go by the Discordian calendar and look at the precepts of Discordianism which says all things are related to 5 (and 5 is the magic number equaling the chaotic beginning and end of everything) we see that the Mayan 2012 can be Cabalistically extrapolated to read: 2 + 0 + 1 + 2 = 5 so both the Mayan and the Discordian calendar are in agreement on the ending... but if it doesn't end in 2012 it will prove Discordianism even more by simply just being a new beginning... lol!

    It sounds awfully inconvenient to use those calenders, because they all end at 2012. You'd have to find something else to use in 2013.

    oesn't end in 2012 it will prove Discordianism even more by simply just being a new beginning... lol!
    Hey, then we can't lose
