Well, at least I am; I can’t speak for anyone else at 5 a.m. But I suspect, according to today’s Google doodle, that we all made it:
The Telegraph explains:
Clicking the image send visitors to Google’s search reults page for “End of the 13th Baktun”.
The 13th Baktun is the last cycle of the Mayan calendar, due to end today, December 21 2012. A Baktun is a period of almost 400 years.
The date has been misinterpreted as the heralding end of the world, but descendants of the Mayans have insisted the calendar merely resets and there will be no apocalypse. Instead, a 14th Baktun offers hope and change, they claim.
Sort of like theologians, aren’t they?
Neverthless [sic], across the globe people were last night converging to witness the apocalypse at sites including Mayan ruins, Stonehenge, Stalin’s bunker in Moscow, Byron Bay in Australia, and a sacred mountain in France.
In Central America believers flocked to ancient Mayan sites like Caracol in Belize, where they watched light passing through purposefully positioned structures, just as the inhabitants would have done over a millenium ago.
