All we can really go on is what the Maya themselves say, and that's very little and sometimes contradictory, which is why there are at least 3 "end
dates" floating around. It really doesn't matter, though, because just as my calendar "ends" every year and a new one "begins", so does the
Mayan calendar. It "ends", and a new cycle begins.
It's not an "end" where nothing else follows, at least according to the Maya understanding. Also, the Maya don't talk about all this
"evolution" business that modern New Agers have tacked on to what was originally a pretty elegant time keeping system.
It's very, very important and they have stages of evolution.
Do tell. Do they really, now? According to who? The Maya themselves, or some white guy with a penchant for feathers and a will to fleece the gullible?
You'll have to excuse me. I'm not a Mayan, but I AM a Shawnee. These white guys running around and stealing native cultures, repackaging them to
suit a peculiar agenda, and then selling them to unsuspecting folks really get under my skin.
Apparently we are about to reach the end of evolving.
There is another name for "the end of evolving". It's more properly described as "extinction". Until a species is extinct, it will ALWAYS evolve.
That's the way of nature.
As we reach the end of evolving, the last thing to do is shed everything around us that still keeps us as lesser beings. We have to get rid of
government and control. Basically everything that surrounds our culture. And that means destroying it; literally.
This is one of those things I've never quite understood about this whole farce involving the theft, repackaging, and resale of Maya culture. How,
precisely, do folks expect to survive destruction? Have they never seen what destruction looks like?
OR... have they just re-defined and re-packaged the concept of "destruction" too? Something more user-friendly, perhaps. A warm and fuzzy sort of
When the cosmic rays start pouring over us from the milky way galaxy, something will happen.
I have two questions about this, and they are serious questions. I'd really like to know. First, precisely what sort of "cosmic rays" are you
referring to? Gamma? Alpha? X-rays? There are all sorts of radiant energy under the catch-all heading of "cosmic rays", and I'm not sure which of
those folks are referring to as being involved in this alleged "evolution".
The second question is this: We live, right now this instant, INSIDE the Milky Way. Why are these "cosmic rays" going to wait for this upcoming
moment to start bombarding us? What's supposed to be keeping them from bombarding us right now, this instant, bathed in the environment in which they
flourish? It's like getting into a bath tub without getting wet. How does that work? What is it about this alleged "alignment" that will strip off
the coating that keeps us safe from these rays NOW?
I bet you back then, the Mayans were in awe of whoever would be living in 2011 AD. It's us! We are the evolved ones! We are becoming more spiritual
and truth is coming more constant.
What is there to envy about a people you believe are going into total destruction? Do you envy convicts as they are strapped in to the electric chair
Don't you guy's feel it too?
In a word, and in all honesty, NO.
