I appreciate the interest. Sorry I didn't get back to this thread sooner, Christmas stuff, you know. I hope you all don't find this too disappointing. After all, this is just a load of armchair psuedo-science.
We know that at the center of the galaxy is a massive black hole, likely one of the largest in the galaxy. I remember reading about a black hole with a diameter roughly equal to Pluto's orbit. I would think the one at the center of the galaxy is at least that size. Considering how dense black holes are, that's a staggering amount of matter.
We know that black holes absorb light, but they do emit x-rays as well as strong gravitational forces. Who knows what other energies and forces they may emit? If String Theory is correct, and there are a minimum of 11 dimensions including the 3 we know. I think it's reasonable to assume that black holes emit forces and energies of which we may not be aware.
"So what?" you may ask, " We're bombarded by these energies and forces all the time, and we survive OK." True enough. Just like we are bombarded by sunlight all the time, and the Earth suffers no ill effect from it.
Further, we know that massive bodies can "bend" electromagnetic energies like light and x-rays. For instance, we can see a star behind the the sun because the sun can bend light rays around itself.
Now, here's the tricky part. The Mayan calendar begins and ends when the sun is positioned directly between the black hole at center of the galaxy and the Earth. Ordinarily, the Earth gets a certain cross-section of radiation from the black hole. But when the sun is directly in front of the black hole, it will bend the radiation around itself and focus it directly on the Earth. Then, the radiation we get won't be simply a factor of the Earth's cross section, but the sun's cross section. Essentially, the sun will act like a magnifyng glass, focusing the x-rays and whatever other radiation on the Earth.
It would have been easier to describe this with some diagrams, but I hope I've explained this well enough. Maybe a mental image would help. Imagine if the moon was a large magnifying glass. During a solar eclipse, it would be able to focus the sunlight that hits the US into a spot the size of a city. Now imagine a magnifying glass the size of the sun focusing x-rays on the earth. Can't be good.
