Doomsday Has Been Cancelled
I never believed that the world was going to end on Dec. 12 of this year because the Mayan calendar is a calendar of cycles, not doomsdays. I learned this during my research for Woman Of A Thousand Secrets, in which I explore the Mayan culture before the arrival of the Europeans. But now an earlier, more accurate Mayan calendar has been found in Xultun, Guatemala, proving my personal theory -- that when the 13th "baktun" (cycle) ends, a new series of cycles begins -- NOT the end of the world. Which is a good thing because I have Christmas plans.
