On December 21, 2012, Venus will cross the sun. Many ancient societies are believed to have used Venusian calendars, including the Mayans and the Egyptians. While solar calendars are based on increasing and decreasing daylight, and lunar calendars use the phases of the moon, a Venusian calendar uses the position and phases of the planet Venus.
I don't buy this story. Bear in mind that people also thought that the world was going to end on December 31, 1999, and May 5, 2000.
