google it quicker


Google what?....If someone makes a claim on a discussion forum, then they should be able to back up those claims, I don't want an answer from google, I want an answer from the person who made the claim.

An error occurred during validation.

Sorry about that.

That's all I saw, link not working. But I can imagine some heathens depicted in working clip.

I really think everyone who frequents the 2012 forum should read that book. Stuart's writing style is so accessible while at the same time providing a lot of good information. I think if people read actual research regarding the Maya and 2012, as opposed to the likes of Jenkins, Arguelles, and Calleman, they would quickly see that all these 2012 claims are pure nonsense.

Sigh... Why does everyone immediately assume this date means the end of the world? (poster after OP) I'm pretty sure that that is a 21st century ideology. Lets all just wait it out, see what occurs, we'll soon see if anything even happens at all.
I really don't think it'll be the end of the world but I do find it interesting that this date should be on an ancient calendar (or 2
)

What specifically?...

Things were "un-right" in 1914
Things were "un-right" in 1939
Things were and have been "un-right" in many forms for hundreds if not thousand of years!.....what specifically do you consider to be "un-right" today that makes you particularly concerned?

For those who read this story, might i suggest also reading this same story from Sciencedaily ? you might get more insight from the people who actually study these things for a living. btw, that story came out yesterday lol

that's the most stupidest evidence I have ever heard, i am not saying it's true but what you have done is just said that it's untrue because someone wrote a book on it? I don't think it would be hard for me to pull up a book and a paragraph stating the opposite in a quote written by a "pro" 2012er and that would be exactly the same. The truth is we wont know until the date has passed and gone, everyone needs to just be patient and stop waiting for the "end". Whatever and whenever that may be. I personally believe that this will not occur anytime soon

Hopefully, December 21, 2012 will be the "end date" for all of the nonsense concerning the Mayan Calender. I doubt it though...

See ya,

There is more from the article.


"What this text shows us is that in times of crisis, the ancient Maya used their calendar to promote continuity and stability rather than predict apocalypse," Canuto said.

You have to realize that David Stuart is probably the leading expert on the Maya in the world. He is also the one who originally translated the 2012 "doomsday prophecy." If Stuart isn't a credible source than the 2012 charlatans certainly aren't credible.

That "someone" is the archeologist who discovered the Calendar we're talking about. An actual archeologist who has actually studied the Mayan culture.

Now your talking. I can totally agree with that. However, did those era's not come with great destruction and demise? Oh, yes they also eventualized into good times, but we appear to be on the front end of the destruction. I'm sure you are wise enough to see this? But maybe you aren't able?

Yes I can see that.....can you not see that it is nothing unique?

We have seen global wars, extreme weather, political unrest....we have seen all of these things a multitude of times in the millennia that has passed......I see nothing to suggest that we won't see them again"......but it has nothing to do with the Mayans, their predictions or anything else....it's to do with living on this rock we call Earth, which has a very unpredictable nature, and mankind being a very unpredictable and hostile species.

It is an interpretation open for debate, however, saying they know the date is ridiculous, as to the end? could be the end of this cycle and the beginning of a new cycle, the end of civilization as we know it is impossible to predict based on any calendar, we have been in existence for millions of years and pinpointing an exact time the world is going to end would not be what we should be focusing on. we all have to live our lives for today. yesterday is gone, and tomorrow may never come. find inner peace and love your fellow man, regardless of what the mayan calender supposedly says.

sincerely,

Have you decided yet which unique "big changes" are concerning you the most in today's world?


haha I always enjoy the smartazz Walmart guy. Well for me the economic impacts. I'm not too Wireless about a planet coming our way or aliens etc. I remember the Berlin wall still up in my lifetime, and all of my now deceased grandparents stories of the depression WWII era. Since your savant on global event cycles I'm sure you understand it all.

Well thats usually what this 'end date' of the Mayan Clander eventually leads too.


Sorry, but you are incorrect. Maybe based on what you've read, but that is not the meaning.

The Mayans never said anything about the end of the world. It was, and always has been, about CHANGE.

Their beliefs stem from cycles that occur in relation to astronomical events, and the changes that they bring when they occur. Those astronomical events happen in predictable cycles over many hundreds and thousands of years.

I would say that we're seeing some real changes in the world as we speak, wouldn't you?

~Namaste



You are wasting your time and energy attempting to correct. They maya aren't the only group of folks who refer to the cycles, they just happened to be the only who carved the information given to them in stone - though there is a great relief sculpture in the ceiling of a pyramid which speaks to the same cycle.

The "end of the world" strawman has its own monument with a maya inscription and its own set of worshipers who accept the human condition as not only a fact but desirable. Humans were programmed to believe in linear time, and time means days of the week, month, and year and that's it. Humans were programmed to leave all aspirations of anything beyond being water carriers and sex slaves for their keepers in favor of considering themselves lucky to be alive. Their keepers made sure to create confusion and hatred whenever things came up that contradicted the poor little slave races true identity - slaves on a rock that came from a bang, evolved to a life where smart phones are the highest form of expression and anything, anything regarding their true identity is to be only connected to the ape, which, had the ape been good at making tea would have been the preferred slave.

Thankfully at the end of these cycles there is always the choice to remain enslaved, and those who prefer this floating prison can indeed continue on. For the rest who would like to explore the rest of Creation - the fun awaits.
