Really? So if he's not out to gain anything why does he sell a number of things on his website? For example you too can learn the Maya Vibration Sound Technique for only $130. I wish I could find the post but I remember someone even providing proof that he isn't even of Mayan ancestry. Regardless his "science" is lacking at best. For example the alignment he speaks of is not important. It occurs twice every year and has been occurring on the solstices for decades now. He is just another person trying to cash in on ignorance by exploiting an indigenous people.
EDIT: I just saw your edit. I believe this is the first thread where the video was discussed.

Of course....I would think...so lofty a soul such as yourself realizes there is a difference between a skeptic and a debunker. I am a skeptic. I think skeptic is someone that really wishes there was something special happening and just does not see it and a debunker just flat refuses to see it even when it is falling on his head.
I really do wish there was magic in this universe...that something wonderful and profound was right around the corner...but I personally see no evidence of that. I see...just another day. I so wish I was gifted like some of our fellow members...they see wonder at every turn...they see lights in the sky and shadows moving through the trees...I don't. In nearly every single circumstance...I have found a rational explanation. I am painfully technically minded and generally allow science and knowledge to answer my questions...and it almsot always does.

Some people expect a climax to strike (or not) on one particular day (or not) only so that they can breath a sigh of relief when it doesn't. Back to business as usual! For these people, this is a defense mechanism of the ego-self. For all we know, "2012" already happened and only to a few people. Would that make it any less significant? Nope. It would just mean that people have a lot to learn. What else is new?
The average Joe-Sixpack has no idea how to understand religion or myth. The very words themselves have been twisted by common usage. The only way to cut through the pop-culture BS and so forth is to study the comparative fields. Comparative mythology, comparative mysticism, comparative religion must be studied for years. And that's just for starters.
The average Joe-Science-Specialist has not studied those fields either. One can specialize in science without religious studies. By the same token, one can be religious without religious studies. No wonder that only a very few people have any idea what's going on! Without an understanding of religion and myth and related fields, one can't form appropriate thoughts, practices, experiences, and expectations.

So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean. Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes. Give me reason to fill this hole, connect the space between. Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies across this new divide
When it doesn't, you will then understand me the way I will understand you. We will have more in common at the end of this month than we have ever had. Something in you will click, and a realization will take place. You will be more than disappointed. You will be disgusted.
