Here's an article with two charts that clearly show the cycles of major comets:


The first chart shows that one of the comets had a periodicity of 4 Baktuns (1,577 years).  This is also the comet that would have been expected in 2012  (1142 BC + 2 X 1,577 ~ 2012 AD).   It is apparently also the comet that was (at least partly responsible) for the beginning of the Dark Ages in Europe around 454 AD.  So, what happened to this comet?  First of all, our ability to count the years that have transpired between the event of circa 1142 BC (1159 BC - 1142 BC) and 2012 AD is not precise.  The Mayans evidently used Venus Cycles to check their own math (13 Venus Cycles X 121 years/cycle = 1,574 years).  Also, the orbits of these long-period comets are not exact.  They vary by a number of years between each successive pass.  The "window" for the expected appearance could be as large as 30 years (e.g., 1990 AD - 2020 AD).  I think we should still expect some kind of event, although with each passing year the probability goes down significantly.  The comet in question may be greatly diminished, but it probably still exists.  Possibly, we have already dodged whatever "bullets" this comet still had remaining.

The second chart shows the periodicity of a second major comet with a cycle of 3098 years.   The last visitation of this comet would have also been around 427 AD and probably contributed to the disaster of the mid-5th Century AD (i.e., fall of the Western Roman Empire).  This comet, if it still exists, won't return until 3025 AD.

There is a third major comet that is also known from ice core and dendrology data.  The period of that comet was around 3150 years, and it resulted in catastrophic climate changes around the years of 13865 BC, 10700 BC, 7553 BC, 4400 BC and 1250/1300 BC.  It would have been expected again around the year 1900 AD and could have been associated with the Tunguska event.  Perhaps there isn't much left of that comet either, however if the impact event had occurred anywhere else other than Siberia the damage would have likely been far more devastating in human terms.

The irony of all the 2012 hype was that we have no idea what year it is in the Mayan Calendar!  Year 2012 in the Mayan Calendar could have passed or be still in the future.  The main purpose of the Mayan Calendar "Long Count" appears to have been to track major comets and prepare (as best possible) for them.  However, we don't know if those comets are still a threat today, and we don't know if other comets have replaced them as possible threats in the future.

One can perhaps see the wisdom in allowing a population increase prior to a major disaster. It might increase the odds that some will survive and their knowledge with it.  In fact, after the previous "big one" (just prior to the Egyptian Old Kingdom) there were survivors along the Nile River and despite enduring the environmental disaster many were killed off (ala the Narmer Palette) by the royal family in their struggle to regain control.

It seems reasonable that the Mayan Calendar was designed to keep track of at least two major cycles of destruction.  It may be that the comets that plagued Earth over thousands of years have finally played out and we are entering a more quiet period.  The star system that came barreling through the Oort Cloud 70,000 years ago would have been a cause of increased comets over tens of thousands of years (and may be yet a cause of concern).
