Mexico acknowledges 2nd Mayan reference to 2012

End of the world Dec. 21, 2012? Two thing that I can think of are an asteroid hitting the earth or possibly solar activity causing an ice age. Mayan astronomy was much more advanced and they had a lot more data than modern astronomy.

Mexico's archaeology institute downplays theories that the ancient Mayas predicted some sort of apocalypse would occur in 2012, but on Thursday it acknowledged that a second reference to the date exists on a carved fragment found at a southern Mexico ruin site.
However, erosion and a crack in the stone make the end of the passage almost illegible, though some read the last eroded glyphs as perhaps saying, "He will descend from the sky."
