Recently Archaeologists in Guatemala announced the discovery of the second-known reference to the "End Date" of the Mayan calendar, found inscribed on panels recently uncovered at the La Corona archaeological site.

The panels are 1,300 years old, and are considered one of the most significant hieroglyphic discoveries in decades.
[Dr. David Stuart, University of Texas at Austin]:
"I was very amazed and amused yesterday to notice that that panel records the date of the end of the 13th baktun (20 cycles of the Mayan long count calendar), which for us is coming up in just a few months time in December of 2012. Here we have a Mayan monument that was carved 1,500 years ago that's talking about the year we're in right now."

But the inscriptions also predict that the ruler's lineage will continue, rather than any apocalyptic prophecies.

The lineage, the blood lines will continue after 21 12 2012.
Interesting times will wait us....

excellent thread!
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 monumental.
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!
why!!!!!!!?????????
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!
peace

Oh, time and this planet will continue on, for sure. It's what happens to the people that is the big question.

What will the Age of Aquarius hold for us? Birth is always a painful, bloody process. The first birth pangs have been felt. I believe we'll see the actual birth next year.

There's no way we're getting out of it easily, by a sudden apocalypse. I believe it will be drawn-out and messy.

Still, the fact that the Mayans were able to predict celestial mechanics before and after their civilization is fascinating indeed.

Of course it will continue.
Even most of the "elites" call it the Great Culling.
Where all of the "useless feeders" will perish.

They all know that something is brewing.
Why else would every superpower nation build underground bunkers?
Why else would they construct huge seed banks around the world?
Why else would the business model become "Profits first, customers last"?
These "elites", CEO's CFO's and VP's have to pay their way into these bunkers.
And it ain't cheap.


Interesting times ahead, indeed.
Good find.

Great phage showed up and ruined our fear porn party, right when it was getting good too.


On another note, I believe I have seen a similar pattern to all these events, it seems there is going to be some "event" for sure that will reshape the world as we know it, and society along with it.

BTW star for you phage, even though you ruined the fun, with you logic, and reason, like we need any more of that around here.

ETA- dont worry OP I didnt forget about your star and flag, good find, very intersting!

The discovery only confirms the end of the baktun date of December 21, 2012.

The events all around the world show that we cannot continue on as is, something's got to give. The correlation between the 12/21/12 date and the problems in our world are made by individuals currently alive.

Not exactly. That date was "confirmed" previously. This is just another mention of it. It's like finding two calendars with March 15th on them (except that this is bit longer time span than a single year).


The correlation between the 12/21/12 date and the problems in our world are made by individuals currently alive.
Then why say "New Archaeological Discovery Suggests End Of The World December 21, 2012?"

You're going to have to ask the OP that question.

I personally think that our current system of things is unsustainable, and it's only a matter of time before a big change takes place.

However, the world will still be here, and time will continue as always.....as will human beings.

I have a VERY small list of people I like to troll on this website because of their lunacy.. you may end up on there.

Anybody who makes it their business to troll people because you don't like what they have to say is the real lunatic.

If you disagree with the OP, that's fine, but no need to be threatening on top of it. You're the only one who thinks it's cool to behave in such a fashion.

I find it interesting that they are finding a bunch of different "rocks" all with the same date. It must have had some significance for the Mayans. I guess they liked making calendars. Besides, "End of The World" could mean a myriad of things. It's all in the interpretation.

I did a little research and it appears that this video originally appeared on NDTV.org on June 29, 2012. You can find the video here.

So according to the timeline, archaeologists would have released the news on Thursday June 28, 2012.

This is typical of most pre-19th century art; if the king/commissioner was not pleased, the artist was often put to death or the work destroyed. Basically, if you don't want to tell your ruler that he's going to die.

You'd think that if the Mayans were so good with prophecies they would have foreseen the downfall of their own society and prepared better for it.

Ah if only. The planet is middle aged. We are at about 4 billion right now and we have about another 4 billion before our planet comes to its end. Mankind could be long gone from the earth before the planet itself sucombs to its own demise. The planet has gone through so many changes in the last 4 billion years and our time span upon this land has been very very short. The planet has been many different things from an ice ball to a steaming jungle. Species have come and species have gone. We delude ourselves into thinking we are it for earth or that mankind will even be around any time near the end of our planet.
