    You do not want to run into mythical planets. That's all I'm going to say.

    1. The Mayans didn't account for leap years, therefore the world should have been over months ago

    No, because it means more days have passed over time than they accounted for. You would be ahead that many days, so the date would have already passed.

    Of the thousands of civilizations that have been on the planet, why is it that people believe the Mayans? If they could predict the future, why did their calendar extend past their own survival?

    They probably put a decimal point in the wrong place. They always mess up some mundane detail.
