ok, the 2012 ~without the prohpecies~
these links are probably duplicates of links found in prior ATS threads
...students of Maya calendrics are increasingly looking for some
underlying significance of one so-called "Grand Cycle" and the beginning of another.
A "Grand Cycle" consists of 13 baktuns, each of which numbers 144,000 days,
making a total of 1,872,000 days. This in turn equates to 5,139.44 solar years...
(the 'Grand Cycle' is also named 'Long Count' by archaeologists)
so the calendar date is just the completion of 1.872million days
tells of Maya cosmology & religion
...according to legend, VUCUB-CAQUIX carried the false sun in his beak
and was shot down in flames at the end of the last creation...
In this item, an underlying significance could be presented/developed->
since each 'Great Cycle'/'Long Count' is a beginning & end of a creation period
a case could be made that; having a false sun equates to having created a nuclear or fission device ,
then having the god meet a disasterous end....it may well be that the mythic history will repeat itself at he end of this Long Count in
have a great 2007 , the year of the pig in Chinese cycles
