The prophecy dictated by the Mayans that the world, as we know it, will end in 2012 has been thrown in to doubt after a discovery of writings in a Mayan book 'What We Did On Our Holidays'.
The book actually states that the world will end at 20:12. Meaning 8:20 of the pm not the year 2012.
A specific year is not given. The book goes on to describe the earth and it's inhabitants going on to live a higher life, with less empahasis on material wealth.
We are all expected to use our holiday entitlements to go on caravan holidays at local tourist destinations and not travel far and wide accross continents.
This discovery has seriously jeopardised the new film by director Roland Emmerich. He says "If this is true, then my whole plot for the movie '2012' is buggered. How can I have an 'end of the world' movie which ends, not with destruction, but a pleasant family holiday in the Lake District?"
The Mayans were, and still are, great believers in family holidays and became fearful of the widening use of global travel, sparking the prophecies that haunt us today. Eddie Bugsmith, Mayan diplomat, said "why travel half way around the world to see some island paradise, when you haven't even been next door?"
Translators are still working on the book to discover if any more is said about the prophecy.
More as we get it.
