Is it not correct that 12/21/2012 marks the end of the Mayan 4th world?
The real question is, so? I've never understood why the Mayans have been put on this pedestal because they managed to figure out a reasonably accurate
calendar. In other respects their civilization was so-so. They weren't particularly technologically adept. Their civilization was not vast and
occupied very litte space relative to say, the Chinese. Their contributions to the world have not been all that great, and their civilization lies in
Contrast that to the Chinese, for example, whose contributions have been stupendous over thousands of years. The Egyptians, the Persians, the Greeks,
the Romans, have contributed much more to modern times. Indeed, the skeleton of Rome's civilization is still with us today. You speak Latin words
every day. How many Mayan words do you speak?
The Mayan influence is almost nothing, yet people look at their calendar and figure they had he whole thing down for the entire world. Every culture
contributes something, but to elevate the Mayans to the world stage after they are nearly extinct seems like complete foolishness.
Most researchers at least tend to think a means a major transition of some kind.
What do you think will happen?
Absolutely nothing spectacular at all.
Assuming its not the end of the world, either humanity will evolve or devolve. I don't see any other options especially when the date is tied
into current events an the inability of the Illuminati to keep the secrets they've been keeping much longer.
Well, humanity could stay more or less the same. Evolution is pretty slow all the same. It'll be awhile before we grow game controllers as appendages.
That last sentence is extremely difficult to parse. The date is just a date. It's not "tied into" current events any more than today's date is. You
can't even prove the Illuminati exists at all, much less that they have secrets.
