Why was everyone complaining that the world was going to end on December 21 2012?

First off, the calendar didn't even end, it just switched over to the next "Buk'un" (hope I spelled that right) which happens every 200 some odd years.

Because little minds believe in little facts, which in turn makes little sense.

The Mayan calendar ended at December 21, 2012, and that's when they thought the world was supposed to end

well, those Archaeologists found a template showing the date 12/21/2012 so right away they assume that something is going to happen. So every Archaeologists started rumors of world ending, Jesus is coming, some planet call nebru or planet x is hitting us,and other stories. So it was just a calender that ends 12/21/2012, just like ours end Dec. 31, 2012. So of course people that are new to this story don't know whats going on, so they assume by word that the world is going to end.
