Well, it is my contention that humanity is 'waking up' as it were, as we lead up to this date i believe that forces within the universe are pushing forward the evolution of our consciousness.
This can be happening in numerous ways in my opinion. Even us discussing this matter is playing a part in this evolution. Although to be specific I believe that as a species we are slowly starting to recall our links to the natural world, we are starting to see more clearly as we evolve our consciousness.
I think that dec 2012 marks the peak in the evolution of our consciousness and this will push us into a new age of understanding and knowledge where we can hopefully use our newly acquired outlook to hep each other and restore the damage we've done to our world, and to ourselves spiritually.
I believe that this is the return of Quetzalcoatl (kukulcan), the return of a higher understanding and a connection to our higher selves, through the evolution of our consciousness.

You bring up some very important questions. I would like to attempt some answers.
Is it possible that the Mayan civilization of old actually "ascended" because of their advanced knowledge and did not "disappear", as it seems to us?

If the mayan people 'disappeared', then how do you account for their genetic descendents, the present-day Maya who very much do still exist?
Are you aware that Mayan 'civilization' peaked and crashed from resource exploitation over generations? They didnt fly off in little spaceships or 'ascend' any more than fundamentalist Christians will be 'raptured'.

I'm really interested as to your motivation, obviously you align with Mayan scholars with degrees, and put anything Maya related into the hands of these scholarly individuals, although I don't see your need to post on EVERY thread maya related and basically shut people down, you may have a degree in history, specializing in the Maya, although I don't feel this warrants you to be the authority on all things mayan, it seems like a very arrogant assumption that you are the be all and end all of all knowledge mayan because you may have studied their civilization at college/university.

My motivation is that this belief in 2012 is dangerous. You either have the people who think it's the end of the world who then end up committing suicide out of fear; or the people that think some form of ascension is going to occur and as a result they sit around waiting for some cosmic reset button to make everything better. Nobody should be harming themselves or others over this nonsense and if they think the world is in need of being fixed they need to step up and do something about it. The reason I reply in every 2012 thread is because the same false claims keep getting made over and over and as a result these errors need to be corrected over and over again. If you want to sit around waiting for some mystical event that will change the world for the better that's fine by me. I on the other hand will actually be taking an active role in helping the world.
