I was interested

until you brought up the Mayans. Their civilization is GONE; I'm not inclined to pay any attention to a ruined civilization whose remnants got curb-stomped by a few hundred Spaniards and their screaming native allies.

Also, here's an awkward fact: my calendar ends on December 31st, 2013. You know what happens after that? January 1st, 2014. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the Mayan one probably worked the same way.

I just don't understand people's obsession with a dead civilization that didn't predict ANYTHING.
