MEXICO CITY—The end is not near.
At least that’s according to a German expert who says his decoding of a Mayan tablet with a reference to a 2012 date denotes a transition to a new era and not a possible end of the world as others have read it.
He said the inscription describes the return of mysterious Mayan god Bolon Yokte at the end of a 13th period of 400 years, known as Baktuns, on the equivalent of Dec. 21, 2012. Mayans considered 13 a sacred number.

The mayans were tracking galactic, planetary, and species evolution. Our solar system is about to go through a period of change and transformation, that is all. Human consciousness will experience evolution and change as its surroundings do so as well. Ancient yet advanced civilizations like the mayas were in the business of studying important and relevant matters unlike modern societies who are fixated with the ego and the perpetuation of the individual. If the mayas say we are entering a new era i will take their word for it not agenda driven fear mongering western scientists.
