If people would just read a damned book for once in their lives (one thats not about vampires) and garner some information the world would be a better
For the record though, the mayan culture today isn't remotely what it was back then. The Mayan elders of today know nothing about their ancestry
other than what archaeologists can provide for them. They spoke spanish, as the mayan language was lost. Most of them still speak only spanish, but
the mayan language (again thanks to archaeologists) is being taught today.
You are wrong in more ways than one.
First of all, very few, if any, of the people/members who know something about the Maya, know that 2012 IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD....
I am getting tired of how many times throughout the years I have to say this....
The Hopi view the time around this date, it is not exactly on this date, that it would be THE END OF A CYCLE...and so do the Maya, but the Maya have
the time as Dec 21st 2012, on the winter solstice. But again, to the Maya, just as to the Hopi, this is not the end of the world. It is just the end
of a cycle. One that will end in conflict, and a cycle which is a time of purification, when unfortunately there will be much suffering.
BTW, there are many different Maya elders, and some have more knowledge than others.
The Hopi, and the Maya, are one at the same. According to the Hopi, they were instructed long ago to make 4 migrations, and the Hopi believe that the
Maya could be a clan that decided not to complete their migration as they arrived to the tropics, where it is warm year around.
Both have many similarities. Although the prophecy of the Hopi is a bit different in that according to them the blue star Kachina, would appear at
the end of this cycle, and it would shed it's skin, and this is symbolized in a Hopi ceremony, and the appearance of this star shows to the Hopi that
the 7 years of tribulation, and purification have began.
The Hopi say that comet Holmes was the blue star Kachina, as it exploded in 2007, and much of it's particles expanded to be bigger than the Sun, and
it became a million times brighter being visible to the naked eye.
Comet Holmes survived this explosion, and it is set to return it's voyage back around the Sun around 2014.
Anyway, to the Hopi this tribulation and purification is a time of suffering also, a time of conflict.
Both the Maya, and Hopi see this time frame as a time of much conflict, when a third great war could also start.
But at the end, it is NOT the end of the world... It is just the end of a cycle.
BTW, most modern Maya didn't learn their language from "archeologists"....
There isn't just ONE Maya language. There is Mam, Q’anjob’al, Jacalteco (Jacaltec) or any one of 28 other ancient Maya languages which are
spoken by many different clans, and they weren't taught by "archeologists." Only two ancient Maya languages are extinct.
Originally there were 31 Maya languages, and two are extinct. So there are 29 Maya languages which are still spoken by different clans.
Oh, and try telling the Maya/Hopi that archeologists know more about their culture than them...
There is MUCH that the different clans of Maya/Hopi know about that NO ARCHEOLOGIST, or any white man knows. They don't tell everything to the white
man, or any other race.
Did you know that most Maya clans still live without electricity, and without indoor plumbing, etc?
To them the more white they become, the less Maya/Hopi they become, and in order to survive they have to live as close to nature as possible, without
many possessions as it was instructed to them long ago.
Another thing to add, according to the Hopi another star will make it's appearance after the blue star Kachina. This star will be red, but they
don't want to mention much about this red star.
