The start date of the Mayan calendar is accurate but it is the end date that is wrong because we are using the Gregorian calendar, which is not accurate. Using the Gregorian calendar researchers arrived to Dec. 21st, 2012 as the end of the 13th baktun cycle. That equated to 5125 years.

But researchers got it all wrong. You have to use the Mayan calendar to get to the correct end date, and not the Gregorian.

Look at this below:

" It is no surprise, and indeed it is to be expected that most of the audience who gives their time over to reading any of this author’s material will first give themselves over to critiquing my knowledge and information about the Mayan Long Count Cycle. There are indeed some rules to be followed in the study of this unfolding Long Count Cycle of 5125.366-years. The problem however remains that no one seems to know why these rules are in place! So, for all of the formalities that are to be garnered in such a task of understanding this count, this author had instead attempted to understand the Long Count from a corrected perspective, in which the cycle is then imbued with the intercalary dates added within the passage of every 52-years. This resulted in the infrequently advertised, and rarely to be seen year phase for the Great Baktun cycle in current literature, which is to be 5128-years.

Just Google 5125 years Mayan calendar and look at all of the references you get.

But the one that is not used that frequent is 5128 years because the Gregorian and Julian dominates all of the literature out there. The 5128 years from the start of the Mayan calendar date is the correct one, not 5125 years and I will show you why.
