The year and number 2012 is meaningless. The mayans never gave a date 2012 or otherwise. The whole idea of the prophecy came from the idea of the end
of the 13 baktuun, which has already ended regardless of what year other cultures and calendars assign to that end day.
Having said that though, I think the prophecy actually did come true and is coming true all around us. We see the signs of it in the news and on ATS
everyday. The changes in technology, medicine, society that are accelerating rapidly.
There is a report of a new medical and technological advancement almost every week sometimes more; stem cell advancements, cloning organs, 3d printing
organs and body parts, new perfect beat pacemakers, 3d technology in general that will completely change our way of manufacturing, drone developments,
robots, exo suits, self driving cars, flying cars, new moon missions, mars missions, opening up space even commercially. Also look at all the threads
talking about and debating the drastic shifting in morals and culture going on right now. And personally being part of the cusp generation, I can see
it plan as day everyday, just looking at the drastic difference in understanding, beliefs, attitudes, morals and desire to uphold traditions, between
the older generations; my parents and grandparents generations, and the younger generations; the children and grand children's generations.
A new world and a new age is being born right now and it will be radically different then the old one. Most of the people who think the prophecy was a
failure are really just the people that expected to much from the changing of the ages. They are the instant gratification types and since, meteors
didn't rain from the sky, aliens didn't show up in mass, nor did the earth suddenly shift dimensions, they think nothing happened. But anyone with
eyes to see and ears to hear, can just look around them and at the recent post pages on a daily basis and see the whole world is a changing and
changing pretty damn fast.
And frankly it looks like it is scaring the crude out of the old guard, but then their world and age; their way of doing things and traditions were
never intended to last forever.
Just my opinion though
