Today, one of the more vigorously promoted ideas is that they are messages, buried in complex numerological codes, concerning a Great Change connected to the pre-Columbian Mayan calendar and due to occur in 2012.
False evidence intended to corroborate an existing legend is known to folklorists as “ostension.” This process also inevitably extends the legend. For, even if the evidence is eventually exposed as false, it will have affected people’s perceptions of the phenomenon it was intended to represent. Faked photographs of UFOs, Loch Ness monsters and ghosts generally fall under the heading of ostension.

But what about real evidence for which there are no answers?
Mass Die-offs increasing?
An all-time Record temperatures for this month of March?
Weather extremes increasing?
Sounds in the sky?
Not saying it has anything to do with 2012 though. But it doesn't look good.
Mass die offs are not uncommon.
What do you think a heat wave in March means?
What do you think sounds in the sky means?
True. However, the numbers have increased and that is uncommon.

The heat waves are normal weather for the Earth as a whole. Back in 1923 there were 160 days in a row for 100+F temperature. That's a record that still stands together. That makes me shrivel just thinking about it.
