To me this mean there will, and certainly not abruptly, be a change in thinking, a maturity in society, where hopefully the wars of the past and the complete desolation of certain areas in the world will stop and we will finally start realizing we're all in this together and we will work our way towards a sustainable global utopia (for lack of a better word). Well thats what I hope anyway.
How could a couple of civilizations from several thousand years ago predict a change in human thinking on a specific year? (forgive me if I misinterpreted that). I could believe the end of the world prediction more than that.

And why is everyone worried about 2012? I'm more worried about the zombie apocalypse. I keep weapons and a collection of canned food in my truck at all times.
