I'm sorry Shrunkensimon, I tried looking for proof of other people and cultures predicting 2012 besides the Mayans, I really did.
However, all I found were new age religous sites predcting 2012 as the rebirth of the world, (And all sourcing the mayan texts.) A guy selling a book
on the 2012 doomsday, (Again, citing the mayans.) and an X-files episode where it is revealed that the aliens will come on Dec. 22nd, 2012 to invade
So please, share with us your souce links citing Christian/Jewish/Islamic text that predicts 2012. And you also mentioned that a freemason made the
great stone of Hendaye and that it says that the earth will go kablooie on 2012. Please share us your links on that. It would greatly add to this
As for me, out of good faith, here are my sources.
is a Mesoweb article describing the problems translating the Mayan calendar
to our gregorian calendar. According to the author, the gregorian translation could be off by 260 years! So if "2012" is true, we got some time.
is an Astronomy Answers site that says that on Dec 21 nothing special happening in
the heavens that day.
I've also talked to my Mayan History professor, Kathryn Dungy, on the subject of 2012 (among other paranormal things) several years ago. She pretty
much laughed at the idea of the world ending then and explained to me that the end of a baktun was like that of the ending of the year 1999. Yes, the
1000's millienium was at the end, but the 2000's millienium will pick up where that one left off. the same is true for the 13th baktun.
BTW, can you recall anything big that happened on September 18, 1618? I sure can't.
And yet, that
date was the start of the 12th baktun of the Mayan calendar. Hmm...
Oh yes, I'm sorry if my jab at the bible code was pathetic. This gentleman
this other gentleman
are far better in describing faults of the bible code than I can ever
