Thats a great link, Fanatic, I especially liked reading through the Native American links that were listed therein.
There is always the argument of 'cross pollination', where other cultures pick up these 'end of the world' scenarios from conquerers, But I'm
convinced that is not the case (entirely).
There is a book which I would recommend if you are able to find it. Gordon Brotherson's 'Book of the Fourth World', a study of Indiana State
University @ Bloomington and the University of Essex, England. This book is published by Cambridge University Press.
Within this lengthy study is an detailed analysis of the Popol vuh and its' relationship to the Sunstone.
Here's our present 'age' Ollin, as written in the eighth century A.D by Native Americans (before the advance of Christian doctrines);
The fifth Sun,
Sign Four Ollin,
is called Earthquake Sun
because it started into motion.
The old ones said
in this sun there will be earthquakes and general hunger
from which we shall perish.
from; Nahuatl of the Cuauhtitlan Annals
Hmmm...so this age will end in earthquakes by that description. The world, btw, does not 'end' entirely, the 'age' does. Nor do ALL the people
die, but most do.
But, isn't it interesting when we note the (seemingly) increasing numbers and violence of quakes, coupled with a weakening magnetic field around the
earth and, also, an increasingly violent solar activity when it should be at a low?
I'm beginning to suspect we may be getting closer as 2012 draws nigh.
Lots to discuss here, Fanatic...
