Why the Creation Cycles do not end
December 21 2012, but October 28, 2011
Could it be that TPTB are giving everyone the wrong date on purpose? I for one support the logic proposed by Calleman, that the 2012 date was just
chosen because the calendar would then end on a winter solstice.
What are your thoughts?
That the end date of the Long Count falls on December 21, 2012 is thus just a necessary logical consequence of the beginning date chosen by the
Izapans and not something that the Maya had intentionally targeted. The creation cycles described by the Maya, including the tzolkin, are
fundamentally of a spiritual, non-astronomical, nature. Thus, any theory that implies that the Mayan Long Count would have been designed to reflect
astronomical phenomena, be it the precession of the earth or a solar zenith, is a warning signal that its originator is off the mark. It should be
obvious that if the Mayan calendar is a prophetic calendar describing cosmic energy cycles of a universal nature then the particular date at which the
sun was in zenith in the particular location of Izapa is totally irrelevant for us who live today and must be considered as nothing but a result of a
tradition too strong to be changed.
Another equally compelling reason why December 21, 2012 cannot be the true date of completion of creation is that this day is 4 Ahau in the tzolkin
count. Since the Long Count consists of exactly 7200 tzolkin rounds then the true end of creation must fall on a day that is 13 Ahau in the tzolkin
count so that the tzolkin rounds even out. If we want to find out what is the real date of ending of the creation cycles we must therefore look for a
day around the year 2012, which is 13 Ahau in the tzolkin count. The inscriptions in Palenque, written about a thousand years after the Long Count was
devised in Izapa, seem to indicate that the date of relevance is October 28, 2011, which in fact is 13 Ahau in the tzolkin count.
