“This text talks about ancient political history rather than prophecy,” says Marcello A. Canuto, Director of Tulane’s Middle American Research Institute and co-director of the excavations at the Maya ruins of La Corona. “This new evidence suggests that the 13 Bak’tun date was an important calendrical event that would have been celebrated by the ancient Maya; however, they make no apocalyptic prophecies whatsoever regarding the date," says Canuto.La Corona for many decades has been known as the enigmatic “Site Q,” the source of many looted sculptures whose whereabouts had remained a mystery until its rediscovery only fifteen years ago. For the past five years, Marcello A. Canuto and Tomás Barrientos Q. (Director of the Centro de Investigaciones Arqueológicas y Antropológicas at Universidad del Valle de Guatemala) have directed the La Corona Regional Archaeological Project (PRALC) which has been investigating this intriguing Classic Maya city and its jungle environs.
Another entirely unexpected discovery was made on another stairway block bearing 56 delicately carved hieroglyphs. Stuart recognized that it commemorated a royal visit to La Corona in AD 696 by the most powerful Maya ruler of that time, Yuknoom Yich’aak K’ahk’ of Calakmul (located in modern Campeche, Mexico), also known as Fire Claw or Jaguar Paw. Calakmul had been an immensely powerful kingdom for centuries until its king was defeated in battle by his longstanding rival Tikal (located in modern Peten, Guatemala) on August 3, 695. “Scholars had assumed that the Calakmul king died or was captured in this engagement” says Stuart, “but this new extraordinary text from La Corona text tells us otherwise.”

I don't really believe in this anymore. In my school there was lots of people who highly believed in this now they don't give a crap. Still there is supposed to be a solar storm on the date but no harm it only takes out power (don't know how long). Next thing is Nibru. To be honest with you i cant believe people still believe in this Nibru crap. It was scary in between 2008-2010 but kinda stopped in 2011. Then a movie came out called 2012. When it came out people did get a little scared. To the Mayan Calendar. Modern Mayans today say it isn't the end but a new beginning and not the end. Well look back then to now. If you think of it , it is impossible to predict the future of mankind even if you are a good astronomer back then. You could these days because all of the tech we have. We now know our sun dies in about 5 billion years well that's the theory. THE END
