Okay, I'll try to do this without sounding like a crackpot.
My first introduction to information regarding 2012 was with the Mayan Calendar ending in 2012. Apparantly, the gist is that 3,600 years ago, the
planets aligned and created a corridor in which the "gods" came through and that on December 21, 2012, the planets are aligned yet again and the
corridor is created and the "gods" will come back through to earth.
I was originally interested in the story, not so much for the corridor and planetary alignment portion, but more for the ending of time and it's
correlation to the Bible's "and time shall be no more." Yeah, I know.. there are lots of forecasted calendar endings, but this one tweaked me for
Then I pondered a bit on the planetary alignment deal and what impacts that might bring to our planet. Which lead me to looking at pole shifts and
that whole line of stuff. A friend eventually found ATS and linked me up here where my mind has now had plenty to digest. lol
It was here at ATS that I found references to the Sumerian texts and that sent me off looking at them and of course, the whole Nibiru/Planet X train
of thought. Now, throwing Sitchin out of the mix as he is apparantly quite controversial, I am peaked by the fact that the Sumerians were very
accurate in their description of the planets, their descriptions, and their orbits AND they included the extra planet, Nibiru. I have trouble
understanding how they could be so accurate regarding everything else we know to be true about our solar system, yet be erroneous in an extra planet.
Interesting enough, it is forecast that this extra planet is due back to us in 2012.
That was enough to spur me to go try and find some sky charts. I went to www.heavens-above.com...
where I was able to pull up various
skycharts for my location. As I played with the Hour and Minute setting, I was starting to see alignments. The strongest viewing for my location is
for the date of Year: 2012 Month: 12 Day: 21 Hour: 10 Minute: 0
This is what the chart looks like for my location at that date and time:
What I found was that by drawing a straight line from Mars to Saturn and then a second straight line from the Sun to Mercury and Venus, you end up
with a corridor.
This prompted me to go back to the Sumerian texts and to try and find a source on them that is not Sitchin. I found what I was looking for here:
It was very interesting scanning through this and finding reference to the creation of man.
I have yet to have the time needed to dive deeply into the information at secred-texts but I am looking forward to doing it.
So.. now the Speculative portion of this thread:
I do beleive that in 2012, we will see a planetary alignment that creates a corridor in space. The Mayans combined with the Sumerians both basically
make the same statements: "The Gods came from the sky". Planet X? Dunno, but the Sumerian drawings of the planets certainly gives some merit to
the idea of such a planet's existence and I don't think it can be quickly waved off without good conversation and reasoning behind it.
So if, we're looking at a return of the "gods" which is forecast by the Mayans and also in the Bible (even though the Bible is monotheistic), it
really makes me wonder how people will react. It also makes me wonder if this planetary alignment, of which the Sun and the Moon also play a role,
will produce natural disasters beyond anything we have experienced in our lifetimes and if survival of such disasters will be possible. If the 3-1/2
years of tribulation do precede the end of time, we should see increased activity beginning mid-2008, no? Thoughts anyone?
