The problem is that you are trying to twist the facts to meet some preconceived conclusion. If the date ranges do not overlap, then they do not overlap. The date range for the impact is given as a 200 year range. That's like a date plus or minus 100 years. You are essentially reducing the precision of the estimate to plus or minus 250 years.
You also estimate a long recovery time. Could you show that cultures worldwide were not growing, but stagnant at that time? The Egyptians seemed to be doing quite well. The earliest known hieroglyphics come from the 32nd century BC.
Melancholia was mentioned as one of three common themes, due to the fact it shows a planetary body entering our solar system. The other themes were Alien invasion and Cluster comets/multiple objects hitting Earth.
Melancholia did not have multiple impacts.
Another explanation is that the Mayan culture continued to use a calendar they were adopting. There was no back dating.
Actually, you are quite wrong, the south pole is Antarctica and the north pole is the Arctic.
I believe Europe was experiencing their Dark ages during this period, I will research this more but given how far back we are looking it isn't that much of a stretch to add 50 - 100 years. We're also talking about something with a theorized impact time. Again, it isn't all that far out. Recovery time of civilisations isn't important to the actual info I'm researching anyway but it is still an interesting path I need to follow up on.
As far as I could tell Mayan civilization began from 2000BC....so YES, they did back-date their calendar.
After further research into this topic it appears to me that it is possible there may be a celestial body in and or around the "Dark Rift". It is so dense we may only feel the affects.
After some analysis, I believe there are well known Mayan Calendar experts like Jose Arguelles and Carl Calleman who promote their interpretations with the intent to uplift the consciousness of mankind.
After further research into this topic it appears to me that it is possible there may be a celestial body in and or around the "Dark Rift".
Anything in the Dark Rift is at least 300 light years away making it too far away to have any noticeable affect on us.
When you state that the fluff is 300 light years away....where are you getting this information?
modern Mayan Elders have correctly predicted that the world is now rapidly moving into a completely new dispensation.
Dr Paul LaViolette’s book Earth Under Fire; Earth’s survival of the Apocalypse, was first published in 1997 and then revised and republished with a different subtitle as Earth Under Fire; Humanity’s Survival of the ice Age (2005). It seems that this research was not known about by Jenkins and this is most unfortunate. To provide accurate information about Galactic Cosmology it is necessary to consult scientists who have attempted to integrate their research with ancient world mythology and ancient archaeoastronomy.
Star perturbations and stellar companion hypotheses Besides the galactic tide, the main trigger for sending comets into the inner Solar System is believed to be interaction between the Sun's Oort cloud and the gravitational fields of near-by stars or giant molecular clouds. The orbit of the Sun through the plane of the Milky Way sometimes brings it in relatively close proximity to other stellar systems. For example, during the next 10 million years the known star with the greatest possibility of perturbing the Oort cloud is Gliese 710. This process also serves to scatter the objects out of the ecliptic plane, potentially also explaining the cloud's spherical distribution. In 1984, Physicist Richard A. Muller postulated that the Sun has a heretofore undetected companion, either a brown dwarf or a red dwarf, in an elliptical orbit within the Oort cloud. This object, known as Nemesis, was hypothesized to pass through a portion of the Oort cloud approximately every 26 million years, bombarding the inner Solar System with comets. However, to date no evidence of Nemesis has been found, and many lines of evidence (such as crater counts), have thrown its existence into doubt. Recent scientific analysis no longer supports the idea that extinctions on Earth happen at regular, repeating intervals. Thus, the Nemesis hypothesis is no longer needed. A somewhat similar hypothesis was advanced by astronomer John J. Matese of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2002. He contends that more comets are arriving in the inner Solar System from a particular region of the Oort Cloud than can be explained by the galactic tide or stellar perturbations alone, and that the most likely cause is a Jupiter-mass object in a distant orbit. This hypothetical gas giant planet has been nicknamed Tyche. One all-sky survey using parallax measurements in order to clarify local star distances, the WISE mission, is currently underway with part of its mission being to help with either proving or disproving the Tyche hypothesis.
so I have no idea if any approaching object bigger than a comet would be able to come close enough to Earth without someone knowing it (if it were detected either by sight or by instruments) but anything is possible. Could something sneak up on us? Thats possible too. It is my understanding that objects outside our Solar System can come in our Solar System as well.
Honestly..... I don't think "we" have been studying the heavens long enough to really grasp it..... its all speculation and theories.... no concrete evidence as far as I can tell.

Yes, thank you. What you just wrote is what I am reading as well to do with the "alignment" and that is only IF we are where we think we are and IF there is really a black hole...and IF.... see what I mean. Its all an IF. lol
I await whatever comes my way and doesn't. In a way I hope something HUGE happens to set the stage for us as humans to be on the "right" track. The way its been the last ten years is not something any of us, if reincarnated would want to experience again. It just sucks overall. We need some change in the air and if it is is in the form of the wave.... I welcome it.
Also, this "wave" is something Viola Neal foresaw (in the 60's).... still trying to get her book, Though the Curtain. I may have to pawn one of my kids to afford it though. lol Just kiddin!

If something were inbound from the north pole it would be very difficult to keep it secret. On the other hand, if something were inbound from the south pole it would be easier.
no indigenous inhabitants, but there are both permanent and summer-only staffed research stations
the population doing and supporting science or engaged in the management and protection of the Antarctic region varies from approximately 4,400 in summer to 1,100 in winter; in addition, approximately 1,000 personnel, including ship's crew and scientists doing onboard research, are present in the waters of the treaty region
There are now approximately 4 million people living permanently in the Arctic,
Indigenous populations now range from about 80% in Greenland, 50% in Canada, 20% in Alaska, 15% in Arctic Norway and as little as 3-4% in Arctic Russia
Antarctica has no indigenous populations. The permanent human population of the Arctic - about 4,000,000. The Antarctic - 0.
