I looked at the first third before dropping off to sleep.
I heard a Monk and some Archaeologists talk about this. Are there any actual Astronomers on this video? If I can afford the time I may finish watching
I note from the start that the narrator says "could" the sun be part of a binary system. I have heard of no evidence to back the idea. But surely if
the Mayans etc were so advanced to understand the workings of binary system mathematics they would have included it in there various charts and
I could just be that observable data was used to predict star movements. Of course the problem here is that they would need as a civilisation a full
cycle of 25000 years at least to work from.
I think the whole 2012 / 2007 thing is hokam. If all these wonderful mysterious civilisations were capable of redicting the future, where are they
now? In the last hundreds of years the Europeans have "discovered worlds and destroyed the civilisations that were there. In the south Americas where
so many of these "advanced" peoples hailed from, where so many "end of days" predictions are supposed to have come from, they did not predict the
end of their own existence.
Of course you may say that the arrival of the evil European conquerors could not be predicted by the stars. A good point perhaps but is that what
happened to ancient civilisations? They thought "Oh we're allright for a bit nothings happening for a thousand years!!" and so ignored impending
doom because it was not predicted?
I will sleep as soundly tonight as I will at the end of the year or either side of 2012. If we kept on taking notice of all the loony crackpot
theories out there we would never get anything done. Personally, I believe, what will be will be. I try to live a blameless life just incase there is
a maker , I try not to cause harm to other living things but I am not too worried about the end. Of course there are horrible ways to go, but
equally there could be horrible ways to live on...imagine an eternity in Wales being terrorised by close harmony singing
