The title may remain an open question, but it wouldn't hurt to make an attempt to answer it.
First, there is an important prerequisite: Every prediction has to be based on certain facts. In the case of the 2012 doomsday prediction, the fact is
that there was once a relatively advanced ancient civilization in Central America who left behind artifacts which were later found by the
archeologists. Those artifacts were subjected to a scientific analysis and the results became publicly available and a subject to a mental inflection
if needed. It is known that the New Age priests, who are the authors of the doomsday scenario predicted to take place at the end of 2012, were not
inspired by scholarly articles referring to the Mayan culture - someone pre-chewed the material and spit it out on the altars of the the New Age
Well, there were two men whose work became the Inspiration Supreme for the cerebral intercourse out of which the doomsday prediction was born. Here is
the first person:
José Argüelles was known for his role in organizing the Harmonic Convergence event of 1987, and his book The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond
Technology, published the same year. In The Mayan Factor Argüelles devises a complicated numerological system by combining elements taken
from the pre-Columbian Maya calendar with the I Ching and other esoteric influences, interspersed with concepts drawn from modern sciences such as
"genetic codes" and "galactic convergences". The book first popularized the Hunab Ku design as a symbol within New Age discourse, after altering
its appearance from that originally presented by Mexican anthropologist Domingo Martínez Parédez ( 1904–1984 ) in his 1953 publication Hunab
Kú: Síntesis del pensamiento filosófico maya.
The doomsday scenario proposed by the New Age cardinals has initially involved a mythical planet whose return to our solar system was supposed to
wreak havoc with the ecosystem of the earth due to a strong gravitational influences. The mythical planet called "Nibiru" was supplied by the second
Zecharia Sitchin (Russian: Заха́рия Си́тчин Azerbaijani: Zaxariya Sitçin) (July 11, 1920 – October 9, 2010) was an
Azerbaijani-born American author of books proposing an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts. Sitchin attributes the creation of
the ancient Sumerian culture to the Anunnaki, which he states was a race of extraterrestrials from a planet beyond Neptune called Nibiru. He believed
this hypothetical planet of Nibiru to be in an elongated, elliptical orbit in the Earth's own Solar System, asserting that Sumerian mythology reflects
this view. Sitchin's books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 25 languages.
So the two ingredients were placed into the Malevolent Mixer of Unusual Desire and the New Age shamans pushed the start button. The result is
well-known: The Mayan calendar ends, planet Nibiru is on its way back... OMG!!!!!!!
But the New Agers were not good students of their own religion. See, the doomsday prediction involved the Mayans and a large extraterrestrial body. We
know that the largest chunk of cosmic debris, whose impact has been confirmed by man, hit the earth about 65 million years ago in the region where is
now the Yucatan Peninsula. The impact zone is called the Chicxulub crater because it's center is near a town of that name.
The Chicxulub crater (pron.: /ˈtʃiːkʃəluːb/ CHEEK-shə-loob; Mayan pronunciation: [tʃʼikʃuluɓ]) is a prehistoric impact crater buried
underneath the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. Its center is located near the town of Chicxulub, after which the crater is named. The crater is
more than 180 km (110 mi) in diameter, making the feature one of the largest confirmed impact structures on Earth; the impacting bolide that formed
the crater was at least 10 km (6 mi) in diameter.
The name of the town derives from the Yucatec Maya language. Yes, the region where the catastrophic impact of the asteroid/comet took place - an
impact whose aftermath may have spelled the END for the dinosaurs, as heavily theorized - was once populated by the ancient Mayans. This circumstance,
which involves Mayan land and asteroid impact, had a consequence that the New Age high clergy didn't know about. By predicting the end of the world in
2012, the New Age prognosticators actually armed the prediction!
But that consequence was known to the small, renegade branch of the New Age religion who call themselves the Guardians of Light. According to the
ancient text that the Guardians are in possession of, the doomsday prediction could be disarmed by a procedure that calls for a well-timed expiration
of those two men whose work inspired the folks who put the 2012 prediction into the motion. The ancient text implied that José Argüelles and
Zecharia Sitchin had to die in two years that immediately precede the year 2012, that means in 2010 and in 2011. Their well-timed demise would in
effect disarm the catastrophic prediction.
The Guardians of Light may have used a special derivative of "Dieffenbachia seguina" which is a poisonous plant found in Central America also used
by the Mayans. I say that because Zecharia Sitchin indeed died in October 2010 and Jose Argüelles in March 2011. Then, in the third consecutive year
2012, the malevolent prediction made by the "inspired" New Agers fizzled.
What is the identity of those members of the Guardians of Light group who poisoned Sitchin and Argüelles? Can they be charged with homicide?
Well, their unlawful act has saved the life of seven billion of Homo sapiens, so the Light of Leniency should illuminate the charge, shouldn't it?
What do you think?
