Actual Mayans are not thrilled with all that Mayan doomsday panic12/21/2012
Joining NASA in giving the Mayan-calendar-ending-equals-apocalypse theory the side-eye are actual Mayans, who are simply not into doomsday mania.

They see it as just another way the world is making a quick buck by misinterpreting their heritage (cough cough — Indiana Jones and your crystal skull). As Vera Rodriguez, a psychologist of Maya descent, puts it: "It's a psychosis, a fad, I think it's bad for our society and our culture." [Source]
