I've heard them all, and they are all just incorrect interpretations if you look at them literally. Though in the broadest sense, they are correct.

I love how people here react to this story, since it gets posted about once a month, every month.

And it does not fortell the end of the world, but a transition to the next age of man.

It's a fantastic achievement that the Mayan calander is so precise, and that that date corresponds with some amazing astronomical occurences that we have only recently realized (Earth crossing the galactic plane, for one). The "End Of The World", however, it is not. As many have said it's the end of an age... what will happen, what changes may occur, who knows? It's quite possible that something interesting will happen, relating to long-term natural cycles, which the Mayan calender is obviously in tune with... but the Earth will still be here the next day, I'm sure, as well as Mankind.

We don't know if their precisely correct. Because they make up facts from Gods and you'll never know if it's not even correct.

Wait, wasn't this thread just made a month ago? :confused:

It could be starting the cleansing right now for all we know, what with the flood in the Philippines, the Earthquake in Indonesia, the list goes on. ;)

And I still stand by my theory, which I will find then post. :pi:

Here you go.

Hmm, I have a new crazy wacko comic book geek idea.

Has anyone read Infinite Crisis, or any of the Crises by DC?

Basically there are multiple worlds out there, all vibrating at different speeds. They're all the same yet slightly different.

It could be that the world will not end in 2012, But rather, like Crisis On Infinite Earths (or more correctly, Zero Hour) implies, the world is reborn again, but without any of us noticing simply because. It did happen catastrophically though but by some Deranged Hal Jordan (Or more correctly again, Hank aka Hawk aka whatever they named him, I forgot), they refined the time stream so that nobody remembers, And all that has happened will slowly be repaired and replaced with false memories that fit, but only Time Masters like Rip Hunter, could ever exploit.

So basically were Earth Prime!

:o I know, I'm Deranged.

I'm getting serious deja-vu from this thread.I swear even some of the replies are the same. :vlol:

Wasn't the world supposed to end in 2000 according to Nostradamus? I find it difficult to believe all this stuff to be honest. What the Mayans or other ancient civilisations may have believed in their time, doesn't necessarily have to be true now. The Mayan calender could be referring to change rather than actual end. Who knows, we still have 2 years to find out.

The sad thing about this recurring story is that, while some people get all whacked-out over it and think it means the end of everything, others--in an attempt to debunk it--ignore the very real achievements of the Mayans. The Mayan calender is an incredible thing... it DOES predict the flow of natural celestial cycles that have been otherwise unknown to us until the last few years! The scope of their knowledge in this particular area was remarkably advanced.

For that reason alone I tend to believe that this date is important... the only thing is, that doesn't mean it's "doomsday" as I've said about a million times before. But just because you don't believe it marks the end of humanity, or whatever, doesn't mean you should scrap the whole thing and call it bull****. The only bull**** here is that many people don't have an understanding of it beyond sensationalism.

well a lot of cultures believed that the end of the world would occur when a dragon would fly over planet x - including the maya.

and come on thats not real :ton:

the mayan calander may or may not be true, but i doubt the end of the world will be in our life :)

Everybody likes a scare, if gives you a thrill and something to keep you on your toes; the Maya were the same.

The Maya & other ancient cultures didnt understand a lot of things - so they adapted their own rules and beliefs - hence the gods instead of weather.
I reckon its just another of the maya's beliefs that we shouldnt believe :hug:

I wouldn't call this a conspiracy theory it's more of a fact that the Mayan calender stops at that date. People make up stories to go beyond why it stops at that date then it becomes fiction when people add their own story to it.

Sorry, Tony. I lived in Alaska for five years. We moved there shortly after Murkowski was elected governor and left a little over a year into Sarah's first term. No one's going to blindside me with any "re-imaging" of Sarah the Great Leader, Sarah the Maverick, or Sarah the New Politician. "Appalled" does not begin to cover what my husband and I felt when we heard that she was the VP nominee. I've seen the real Sarah Palin, and the Katie Couric interview surprised me not. She's an intellectual lightweight who only sounds good when speaking glittering generalities because that's all she knows.

She was elected governor of a state where every resident had about a 1 in 600,000 chance of being governor, and that includes children. Only in Alaska . . . .

There's no question in my mind Obama is smarter than Palin. I may not agree with his policies, but at least if he utters the word "fungible" I'll know it wasn't fed to him that morning.

why are ppl caring about their calendar? maybe they just died out before it could be continued, or they go tired of updating it.

Because their calendar accurately a depicts a shift in our astral position relative to where we have been for the last 5 millennia. The doomsayers seem to think that will mean some bad things for us. All it really means is that the planet itself might be more exciting to live on for awhile if it does anything at all.

their calender says where our planet has been since 5 millenia (10,000 years) ago? some thing like that?

Calendars are astrological timekeepers, our modern calender is a very simple example of that as it only really keeps track of the annual revolutions that our planet makes, and not very well at that.

The Mayan Long Count Calender does that, but on a much much bigger scale, it literally is perfectly aligned with Sol's (our sun) revolutions around the galactic core. Each time we pass through the Galactic Plain, the calendar starts over.

We are currently leaving the Age of Pisces behind. This is an exciting time to be alive really, because for the entirety of our knowledge and recorded history we have been in the Age of Pisces.

Age of Aquarius

The Mayans didn't predict anything.

According to general astrological sources, each age is about 26,000 years.

But since there is no hardline authority on the subject, think of the whole Age thing as a minor detail.

What the Mayan Calendar does for a fact convey is that the human understanding of the universe has actually regressed significantly throughout history.

I remember reading somewhere that the exact time of the crossing of the galactic plane is 11:11 on Dec. 21 2012... which feeds into the 11:11 phenomenon which I've experienced for at least 20 years--and which I had no idea was something that literally millions of other people also experience! I've talked to several people personally who all said "I thought I was crazy!" upon hearing that I see 11:11 all the time, and everywhere... and, of course, they admit to seeing it as well.

The Mayans/ Egyptians and all great civilizations, studied the stars and nature in ways our scientists cannot explain today. The Mayans didn't offer some random prophecy, like Nostradamus did. They studied the movements of the stars and based on that, they made a prediction.

I believe that a disaster may occur in 2012, but not one that will destroy the world. Perhaps an earthquake or a tsunami, that will harm a part of the world. I wish of course the Mayans were wrong. But in case such an event happens, governments must be prepared.

The last decades the planet is going from bad to worse... Global Warming, the melting of the Poles, mass destruction of forests, more and more animals in danger of extinction. One does not need a degree in ancient cultures or a prophecy to see that unless we change our way of life, this planet won't be holding us for ever.
