New Conspiracy Theory Online Claims The Mayans Actually Predicted The World Would End This Sunday

Some Believes Based On The Mayan Calendar We Are Actually Now In The Year 2012

June 15, 2020


Back in 2012, a portion of the online community believed that the world was going to end, based on the Mayan calendar. While that didn’t happen, many have continued to look for explanations as to why the Mayans were wrong. Now, a new conspiracy theory floating around online is claiming the Mayans actually predicted the world was supposed to end this Sunday.

The majority of the world began using the Gregorian calendar in 1582. However, some continued using other calendars to track dates, including the Mayan and Julian calendars. The new theory states that 11 days were lost from the Julian calendar, and as time has passed those dates have added up, meaning we are actually in the year 2012.

“Following the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012. The number of days lost in a year due to the shift into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days. For 268 years using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days. 2,948 days / 365 days (per year) = 8 years,” scientist Paolo Tagaloguin recently said in a since deleted tweet. Based on this theory the date of June 21, 2020 would actually be December 21, 2012. While this theory would explain the current state of the world, it seems many online are about to be disappointed once again this Sunday.
