According to modern interpretations of the ancient Mayan calendar, the world was supposed to end this morning at 6:11 EST.
Well, pinch me if I'm dreaming, but it looks like we're still here.

Earth was NOT sucked into a giant black hole. The sun did NOT enter an apocalyptic "galactic phase." Solar flares did NOT reverse the poles and fry us. Earth did not smash into a giant planet called Nibiru.
The Mayan Apocalypse will go down as just another false doomsday theory, along with those of Harold Camping, Pat Robertson, and many more.
