the maya never cited 2012 as the end of the 5th World calendar--- thats true...
the maya only went by the formula of certain subunits that made up the time spans totaling 13 Baktuns,,,,
something over 5 million seperate 'days' in the Earth's Solar journey==
the calendar 'began' under a certain rulers presence and would continue until some ~5,120 winter solstices' later
you will note that i put the 5.200 year average of the 4 previous 'worlds' up against the current 'world' calendar time period of 5,120 years as a
distinction... but in all events the 5 calendars of Maya 'Worlds' correspond to the other cycle we & other cultures know of as the Precession Cycle
of some ~26,000 years
further study will be needfed to determine if ALL sequential Maya Calendar time periods were equal = being 13 Baktuns long...or if there were new
starting dates for each calandar start with a period of 'rest' in-between these 5,000 year long timespans....~ interesting
as for the rest of your 2 posts... i will need to refresh my memory right now....
No... of course there is no specific proof of the anciet maya forecasts... the dang christians from spain destroyed all but fragments of the pagan
maya (for the glory of god no less)
but from the bits & pieces of info i picj up... Quiche Maya Elders (a supposed direct authority)
tell us of 5 worlds (aka time spans/epochs)
don't feel that dissing my posts is a exercise in disproving anything... i only relate the bits & pieces of sparse info sources out there...
use-the-google-search-function instead of defending a stance as neing absolutely valid
thanks for your reply anyhow
