Heres an interesting quote..
"To explain this away as "coincidence" would only obscure the issue."

We tend to agree the speaker missed the different interpretation of coincidence as co incidence. Of course this coincided otherwise it would not be subject to observation. :P

Tzolk'in("Count of Days"/Ritual Calendar) ~ 260 day Sacred Year

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tzolk'in
http://www.levity.com/eschaton/Why2012.html
This calendar was used for rites and divination and formed the foundation for the entire mayan civilizations system of time reckoning. The first day of the Tzolkin is 1 Imix. 260 days (twenty thirteen day periods) must elapse before the same patten repeats itself. The Maya considered days and numbers to be divine, different combonations bringing luck or ill fortune, thus individuals and communities based decisions on this system.

(in the revised orthography which is now preferred, formerly and commonly tzolkin) is the name bestowed by Mayanist scholars upon the version of the 260-day Mesoamerican calendar which was used by the Maya civilization of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica.

The tzolk'in is the most fundamental and widely-attested of all the Maya calendars, and was a pre-eminent component in the society and rituals of the ancient Maya. The tzolk'in calendar remains in use amongst several Maya communities in the Guatemalan highlands. Its use is marginal but spreading in this region, although opposition from Evangelical christian converts has erased it from some communities.

The word was coined based on Yukatek Maya, with an intended meaning of "count of days". The actual names of this calendar as used by the pre-Columbian Maya are not known. The Postclassic Aztec calendar equivalent, derived from the earlier central Mexican versions of the 260-day Mesoamerican calendar, was called by them tonalpohualli, in the Nahuatl language.
