I do find it quite funny that the Mayans have waited until 2012 before really attempting to debunk these myths!
They could have seriously started debunking all this 20 plus years ago. Instead, they have allowed it to be milked to death and then when 2012 comes round...
Gomez's group issued a statement saying that the new Maya time cycle simply "means there will be big changes on the personal, family and community level, so that there is harmony and balance between mankind and nature."

It is funny how one guy can say he is the spokesman for and entire culture. It is even more funny that the culture is virtually extinct, and has been for hundreds of years.

There were these same people in this country in central america that attempted to defraud me of my house title and land title (separate districts) of which I had to hire an ex-supreme court judge (out of the system) to represent myself and prove the facts as they were. It was an amazing experience! The criminals expected me to accept their conditons as some were in positions they did Not deserve. This surprised me as I would assume they were aware of the consequences of their actions. Maybe not, though I believe they were informed.
I hired a lawyer; a retired supreme court judge to represent myself. It was settled for the present though the future is another unknown although the taxes have been paid on the property for past 7 years The criminals have suffered for their crimes in various ways and many more to follow though I was surprised at the ignorance of it all.
Either way, justice will be served in the end, one Way or another. I suppose this is understood? All scumbags should be Removed from the sytem when found for what they are. Otherwise they are encouraged to do the same to the next victim as my American real estate agent and her husband from Colorado were murdered a few months after the house contract! There is much more though most have been sweeped from the public record for 'some' reason. Either way they are punished in the present and in their End. Amazing to experience as one could imagine.edit on 26-10-2012 by Bluemoonsine because: (no reason given)
The Maya people constitute a diverse range of the Native American people of southern Mexico and northern Central America. The overarching term "Maya" is a collective designation to include the peoples of the region who share some degree of cultural and linguistic heritage; however, the term embraces many distinct populations, societies, and ethnic groups, who each have their own particular traditions, cultures, and historical identity.
There are an estimated 7 million Maya living in this area at the start of the 21st century. Ethnic Maya of Guatemala, southern Mexico and the Yucatán Peninsula, Belize, El Salvador, and western Honduras have managed to maintain substantial remnants of their ancient cultural heritage. Some are quite integrated into the majority hispanicized Mestizo cultures of the nations in which they reside, while others continue a more traditional culturally distinct life, often speaking one of the Maya languages as a primary language.
The largest populations of contemporary Maya inhabit Guatemala, Belize, and the western portions of Honduras and El Salvador, as well as large segments of population within the Mexican states of Yucatán, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Tabasco, and Chiapas.

Guatemala's Mayan people accused the government and tour groups on Wednesday of perpetuating the myth that their calendar foresees the imminent end of the world for monetary gain.[...]

I don't think anything will happen this year or the next to affirm the "mayan prophecy". However, there are people on far more money and with far more influence that are going nuts right now... the international seed bank has been sealed, there are numerous underground facilities being constructed...the governemtns of this world are going nuts, see the news lol.
Bring it on, so we can laugh, and they can hang their heads in shame for using all our money in a staged world economic disaster.....come on...you know its all staged.

I've done a lot of research on this topic and I've never come across another civilization that places an emphasis on 2012. I've come across plenty of sources claiming such things but none of them have ever been able to back the claims up when questioned. In regards to Hindu specifically, there is a small subset that makes claims regarding 2012. However, this group is Hindu in name only. It emerged in the second half of the 20th century and bears more resemblance to the New Age movement than anything else. None of their claims regarding 2012 are supported by Hindu scripture. In fact they had to create an entirely new Yuga just to get their date to lineup with 2012.

Don't feel bad. They have coined it for decades because of these rumours, as have many others. That is why i have no sympathy that they are claiming to be offended nowadays. You aren't suddenly offended after milking it for decades are you?
