WHAT IS THE DATE The Maya had 3 circular calendars that were used together:

the Long Count: an astronomical calendar of cycles of 2,880,000 days (about 7885 years) The Tzolkin: a religious calendar of 260 days with 20

periods of 13 days each the Haab: a solar calendar of 365 days with 18 months of

20 days and one month with 5 days) The Maya long count calendar began on a mythical

date of August 11, 3114 BC, the date of creation. The calendar date to the right shows how many days it has been since August 11, 3114 BC on January 16, 2018. The earth was not destroyed on December 21, 2012,

but was the end of the13th bak'tun, (a baktun is 144000 day or about 394 year cycle). But there are 20 baktuns in the next larger cycle, a piktun. Remember

the Maya calendar is round, it just started a new cycle. The Maya did believe the world was destroyed and recreated at the end of a piktunso we still have about 2754 years to go (October 13, 4772). Is that a Friday?

you die you go on a journey through heaven and the underworld before eventually coming back to earth. Legend of the corn people
