I'm kind of new to all this 2012 stuff. One thing did occur to me though regarding current events. As I see it 2012 will also have another milestone that may or may not have been discussed in other threads. If it has I appologize if I am being redundant but 2012 will have already arrived if I sit down and try to read through all the threads on this topic.
Anyway, here it is.....2012 will also mark the end of the first term of whom ever gets elected president here in the US. Now for those of you who believe this to be an New World Order event as opposed to a global or celestial event, this election may carry additional significance.
The road has to be plowed, so to speak. So my question to the true believers of the NWO/2012 connection, whom do you believe is going to set things into motion? It's not going to happen over night the precusor might just very well be the here and now! November 2008! Granted, you will probably say that things have already been put into motion a long time ago. Fine, but for the grand final event wouldn't you think that the powers behind the scenes could find a better selection than the three who stand before us? I see nothing remotely intriguing about the McCain/Obama/Clinton cadre. Nothing at all!
So, will the next President of the US be the great father/mother of a new world? Or a patsy who finally hands over the keys to the vault and ultimately becomes the court jester?

dk3000 right on! It brings to mind another perplexing thought.
Logic would make one think that when the Mayans created the calendar it was with the thought in mind that the Mayan civilization would still be around when the so-called great event occured?
This is a conundrum to me. Are we to surmise that such a great civilization who could apparently predict such "earth changing" events could not in turn save themselves from total extinction?
It makes for great reading and I suppose it gives a few something to look forward to and speculate on in the years leading up to 2012. All I see is a great big "catch basin" for every conspiracy theory there is. UFO's/Alien disclosure, Planet X, Global warming, Armaggedon, Pole shifting, NWO taking over....or whatever!
Sigh, I suppose if you throw enough against the wall.....well you know the rest!
I certainly do!
Well, when the Mayans encountered Cortez and his Christian missionaries- it is no secret the missionaries destroyed much of the Mayan records because they were deemed to be devil-worshipers and evil in general.
Mel Gibson- to his credit- came up with Apocalypto based solely on remaining Mayan hieroglyphs which he used to tell the basic storyline- the rest was dramatic interpretation, speculation and historical thrown in for spice and drama.
The real truth is, like so many civilizations which encounter "new" peoples- suffer new plagues with which they are not prepared to fend off. Then add the destruction of their "heretical" histories leaves current "scientists" with only one option- to reverse engineer what did manage to survive- such as the calendar.
The fact remains that the real reason/explanation for 2012 being the last calendar day will never be known because is has been forever lost in destruction.
The same can be said for Paganism, Christianity and every culture- much was destroyed which may have and likely did reveal the information we are looking for- but now can never verify!
Here is a truly interesting read for you: www.gladwell.com...
You may just find out why you are as brilliant as any scientists and more so- without all their education and fancy worded theories at your disposal!
