In an article by Jaweed Kaleem entitled "Mayans Protest 'Twisting Of Truth' Over 2012 Doomsday Predictions,"  Felipe Gomez, head of a Maya alliance called Oxlaljuj Ajpop, says, "We are speaking out against deceit, lies and twisting of the truth, and turning us into folklore-for-profit. They are not telling the truth about time cycles."
From the article: "The Maya never said anything about the end of the world or anything about a great change in the universe on that date," David Stuart, a professor of Mesoamerican art and writing at the University of Texas at Austin, told The Huffington Post in December 2011. "The calendar not only continues after that date," he said. "It goes 70 octillion years into the future."
