The Mayans living there say it isn’t real–now Mexico’s archaeology institute is checking out that December 21st doomsday prediction. They basically deny it, but they HAVE admitted that a SECOND reference to that date has been found on a carved stone fragment at a ruined Mayan site.
Earlier, most experts knew of only one surviving reference to the date in Mayan glyphs, on a stone tablet from the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco. The second apparent reference to the date has been found at the nearby Comalcalco ruins.
Both inscriptions–the Tortuguero tablet and the Comalcalco brick–were probably carved about 1,300 years ago.
