The Mayan Calendar was based on the path of the moon for agricultural purposes. The mathematics are curiously common throughout various parts of the universe. Nothing is going to happen. It's the winter solstice.

The Mayan Long County Calendar ends on what translates in the gregorian calendar as 12.21.12. Mayan texts say nothing about the end of the world. Just the end of the calendar. So what happens? The stupid calendar starts over again. Big deal.
The point of interest for these early astronomers seems to have been the projected end date in 2012 A.D., rather than the beginning date in 3114 B.C. Having determined the end date in 2012 (for reasons we will come to shortly), and calling it 220.127.116.11.0, they thus proclaimed themselves to be living in the 6th baktun of the Great Cycle. The later Maya certainly attributed much mythological significance to the beginning date, relating it to the birth of their deities, but it now seems certain that the placement of the Long Count hinges upon its calculated end point. Why did early Mesoamerican skywatchers pick a date some 2300 years into the future and, in fact, how did they pinpoint an accurate winter solstice? With all these considerations one begins to suspect that, for some reason, the ancient New World astronomers were tracking precession.
It should be noted that because precession is a very slow process, similar astronomical alignments will be evident on the winter solstice dates within perhaps 5 years on either side of 2012. However, the accuracy of the conjunction of 2012 is quite astounding, beyond anything deemed calculable by the ancient Maya, and serves well to represent the perfect mid-point of the process.
i.e believe it
LUCIFER, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darknesss! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!" p.321
Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled, to conceal the truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it. Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it."

I think there is something to the 2012 thing. I'm not saying it will be the "end of the world", but I think we are in for a major change at the very least. I, too, was a bit skeptic of the Mayan Calendar at first. But then I learned that other sources, without knowledge of the other, came up with December 21, 2012 also. These sources also predicted world events accurately that have already proven to be true in the past. These include, but are not limited to, the medieval predictions of Merlin and the Chinese oracle of the I Ching. In addition, a new technology called "The Web-Bot Project" makes massive scans of the internet as a means of forecasting the future, and also came up with the 2012 date. I'm not entirely sold on the Web-Bot thing, as it could have come up with this date simply because so many people are talking about it on the net. The point is that it is all a matter of opinion until December 21, 2012. That is when we will know for sure what the deal is. Until then, I don't think it can be debunked.
As for the skeletons of "giants" being found... this is the first I've heard of that, excluding the occasional ATS hoax. So why is it that when the fossils of a 5-foot-tall penguin are discovered, it is carried all over the news, but when 10 and 15 and 30-foot humanoid remains are discovered, we don't hear about it? To me, the discovery of human-appearing "creatures" that are three stories tall would be the most amazing discovery in the history of mankind.
I anxiously await some links to some legitimate sources for this giant stuff. Hopefully I will remember to return to this thread and look for the links. But maybe some really nice ATS member will U2U me the links when they read this!

The earth is going to stop rotating because Nibiru is a brown dwarft and is extremely dense, thus, causing a massive gravitational force on the earth which is strong enough to stop the rotation tempoary until it passes. Science predicts that may happen, not ancient text. Ancient text only gives you outlines, modern science is proving it.
