The Mayans were some of the best mathematicians and astronomers the world has ever known. Their calendar was much different from ours, but after
rectifications, research, etc. we do know that the date Dec. 21, 2012 coincides with the end of the Great Year (26,000 year cycle). It is not the end
of the world. It simply means that the calendar will then start over again in another 26,000 year cycle. They did know something momentous would
happen though, but AFAIK, they didn't predict anything specific, but they did see it as a shift in consciousness.
Oddly enough, the stars and planets in the sky will be making strange and unusual alighnments and scientists are studying those movements, but don't
know what they might mean. One theory is that the magnetic poles on Earth might shift and there is alot of evidence that points in that direction.
Certainly earthquakes and floods would be part of that.
For those that believe in astrology, there are lots of interesting aspects to study in regard to 12/21/12. For those that don't, well at least you
have the facts now.
There are many other cultures that also believe in a shift at that time. The Hopi, Navajo, Egyptian, Mayan and also Terence McKenna believe something
will happen then. There may be others, too, but those are the ones I know about for sure, so that will get you started anyway, if you want to
I have also read that the concept of time will change - perhaps it is when we hit infinity, who really knows?
2000Y2K was based on the fact that the computers might go whacky, but it was based in fact.
These predictions are not related to Y2K at all. They are predictions made by ancient peoples. Peoples, I might add, who didn't have TV, so they
watched and studied the stars and planets and learned a great deal about them. The Hopi believe that we are coming to an end of the Fourth World and
will be starting the Fifth World.
Personally, I don't believe it is the end of the world, but I do think there's a good chance on the poles shifting, which would of course kill
perhaps 90% of life on the planet, but it will regenerate. This would wipe out things like corporations and corrupt govt., so it may also mean a huge
shift in our consciousness. Let's hope so, we all need one here on this planet.
