i love this stuff.
i'm not an 'end of days' kinda guy,but it is fascinating that these people could actually formulate the date
DEC.21,2012,and actually envision it as a real,actual date.
can we as humans now think about a date 1500 years from now (Dec.21,3512 AD)and think of it as a 'real' date!?
peoples of the earth have recorded time in this way for eons.
modern man is not 'modern' at all! we have all been turned into zombies,with little if any knowledge about anything significant,not to mention
most of us can't even decide whats for dinner tonight,nevermind a date that is 1500 years from now!
yet,these people found it necessary to record it in stone!
modern man - 'how was your day at work honey?' - horrible! the boss is a jerk,and i have way too much paper work!'
ancient mayan (circa 500 AD) - 'how was your day at work honey?' - 'enlightening! i finished the 13th baktun carving telling of the end of an age
that will be in the year 2012!!!'
any way, i think the ancients knew a lot more than we think!
