Now that's just plain silly isn't it.
The date "21st December 2012" refers to the end of the Mayan calendar, but it is not only this date that is important... heck, with basic research
you can see that even the exact year of 2012 may not be the year that "X" (relating to the 2012 phenomena) happens, if indeed it does at all.
The Mayans used their calendar then pretty much as we do now; to count days, groupings of days, cycles and obviously keep track of time long-term.
From all of the sources I can ever recall during my own research into the phenomena, the focus/emphasis has been on a period or time (of change),
shifting over several years (I think it was a period of maybe 20+ years), rather than the specific date (and time) that the Mayan calendar technically
There is a substantial amount of evidence that I've come across when researching other avenues I might add, pointing to major Earth changes, or
cataclysms as we would know it, occuring almost like clockwork (on a planetary scale at least) roughly every 26,500 years, with a smaller
"half-cycle" roughly every 13,250 years. The important thing to note (for me), is that the Mayan calendar ending coincides EXACTLY with the (larger)
26,500 year cycle changeover, and the one we just experienced 13,500 years ago (end of the Ice Age) is supposedly a smaller/milder change. The larger
26,500 year cycle is also when we enter the age of Aquarious in the (precession of the) Equinox, and with the Mayans and all ancient cultures heavily
into the stars, it is natural that their calendar should start and end on the changeover, regardless of cataclysmic events. The Inca and the Aztec
calendars also end on this date to mark the changeover in the Equinox, but they are rarely given airtime, and also there has been a lot of work done
at Giza in the last 10 years which shows through sacred geometry (and indeed just geometry), that the Pyramids and complex there points to this
specific date. Fancy calendar I know, but the evidence is there. I even read it on this forum first so search away if you're interested in more on
Let it be known that I believe our modern day history does deliver some proof of the 13k shift in the "Great Deluge" story from the Bible, and in
other religion's texts also, but anyone with any intelligence can see that this myth, or truth, was borrowed from Sumerian and more importantly Pagan
history and folklore long before scholars and priests wrote the Old Testament.
Anyway, modern day assumption seems to be that the Earth shifts to very cold around the 26k mark, warms up slightly to somewhere approaching our
modern day climate around the 13k mark, then gradually keeps warming until it hits our climate today before dropping significantly again at the
cycle-turn point. Looking at probably our best modern-day marker for measuring change towards this (on a global scale) is the system of measuring the
North Atlantic Current we currently employ, and I'm sorry to confirm that the current is dropping in speed/flow and temperature every year, and now
to dangerous levels, reaching critical sometime in the next 10 years, but apparantly it can go like a light-switch and when it does it won't reverse
for a very long time. When this current drops below a certain flow-rate and temperature, a rush of arctic ice cold water will enter the Atlantic ocean
and over a period of what could be as short as a few days, the warm air that gives us our lovely temperate climate will cease to exist and the Earth
could enter a new Ice Age, with average temperatures in the US and most of Europe below -50 degrees.
Anyway, in light of your question, I think it would be more than a bit drastic (not to mention tempting fate) to pull down the 2012 forums before it
hits 2013 at the VERY LEAST
And if we go from the word of the Mayans (Hopi) still in existence today, as well as followers and specialists in this area (Melchizedek to name but
one), then we should leave the forums open until around 2025-26, when the window of change officially closes as per the Mayans. You do know the shift
started about 5 years ago don't you?
