So what is the compelling evidence here that the Mayan Council is presenting? Who is this Council anyway? Remember the Mayan disappeared long ago, so anyone could at this point identify themselves as a "high council" if they wanted and probably have little resistance to their claim.
This whole 2012 thing I suspect, and again this is just a suspicion, is a clever distraction by those unseen powers that run this planet both economically and politically. They use Hollywood in movies like "2012" to get everyone all riled up and just to make our fears even more valid, they orchestrate worldwide disasters in the political arena and in the banking systems.
This feeds our nightmares and creates panic, all the while the real damage is being done beyond our ability to perceive and we become the puppets they want us to be.
Again this is just my opinion, but every 2012 prophesy ever uttered has come up false, every doomsday scenario has come up false, and each time we panic as a people....they take a little more of our freedoms away from us....legislatively....legally.

"It's a proven fact that ancient civilizations(Mayan's, Hopi's, Symerians, Egyptians, Greeks) had more knowledge of the solar system and its behavior a thousands of years ago than NASA."
I would very much like this proven. So the ancients knew that the Sun was actually a big ball of hydrogen being fused into helium and later produces carbon and other elements. And then it explodes and condenses to start over again.
You may be able to claim that the ancients had PHILOSOPHIES which explain Universal law.
If i said everything in the universe came frome 1 source, I cant claim also to know how everything works.
Basically I'm saying that the Ancients Had no where near the knowledge of Physics as we do today.
What they did have was more knowledge than we had previously thought.

the problem with 2012, is that there's mayan calandars that go past 2012, some for a few more centuries, everyone just harps on the one that ends 2012,
by the same rational, we should panic every Dec, as that's always when our own calandar ends
plus, given the current state of the mayans, I'm surprised there's still a mayan high council that can speak with any authority on it.

I'm not really sure what to think.
One story says the mayans are saying its all bs. This one says its the eotw.
We have plenty of other bs going on besides a pole shift to worry about.
Regardless, be ready to roll at a moments notice. Be armed. Be stockpiled.
IF it does happen, people are gonna be as crazy as a crap house rat!

The magnetic pole is presently not in agreement with the geographical north pole. No matter. We call the difference magnetic variation.
OK so if it shifts some more down into Russia then it will be a new variation which will have to taken into account by those whose business is navigation. There is no reason to suppose that the arctic environments will move away from where they are now. This is because of the axis of the earth, not the magnetic fields of the earth. There is no indication that the axis must be affected by the magnetic field. Possible I suppose but I admit here that I am not sure about it. The axis is balanced with the rotational centers in the cores. We will see.
The bit about darkness for (what was it?) 30 hours makes no sense to me. The sun will still shine will it not? The earth will still rotate will it not?
I mean if it stops we will all fall off.
Also the disappearance of the magnetic field of the earth seems a bit much. The moment that happens our atmosphere will begin to be ripped away and we will all need to get underground for protection from solar radiation. So long as the relative movement between the inner and outer cores of our planet continue the result will be magnetism.

Lol, I think you misunderstood what I said. What you bringing up is precise scientific analysis.
What I'm talking about is the type that when most people though the world was flat. THEY KNEW is was ROUND.
While most people though the Earth was the center of the universe, THEY KNEW the SUN was the CENTER.
