just a belated update item
an author doing research of Maya elders and tour guides etc
got a lot of imput about the stories that grandfathers told
the next generation...
the most related story is that 2012 date is when a unique
'Lightning Bolt' will strike earth,
some tales say the cosmic Lightning Bolt will strike an
ancient Temple which was deliberately buried by the Maya ancestors
for when the Gods returned from the stars
i'm thinking that the Lightning Bolt could be either a Sun spot or coronal mass ejection hitting earth
or the lightning bolt is a metaphor for alien 'gods' returning to a site of ancient Maya temple...
some storys say that when the sky glows and the sun goes black,
then the lightning bolt will strike
~now that sorta sounds like modern additions to those multi generaton stories to my ear~
