Mayan Calendar - Is The End Near?

Updated on September 29, 2012

December 21, 2012 is that it?

If you believe the Mayans then that's it, adios, ka put, were out of here and I guess that would concern all of us still alive, Right? Naw we have bigger concerns like why aren't my text messages going through, when can I get my next botox injection or where is Paris Hilton. What a life.

Now to do this subject any justice in research I concluded by the time I would finish the world would have ended, December 21, 2012. So I decided to note a few landmarks and let you take it from there. For that time the precision in pyramid construction was fascinating and poses many questions.

The overwhelming evidence of Mayan prophecy in the last decade of the millennium supports the accuracy of the calendar and the Arguelles' interpretation of the Dreamspell and Time Shift of July 26, 1992. After perceiving the final sequencing of the Mayan calendar in 1987, the Time Shift in 1992 was an adjustment of the annual calendar's beginning to July 26, so that the Dreamspell New Year falls on that date each year.

Since the Maya codices were destroyed during the European Conquest, the tables of dates and interpretations of codes were mostly destroyed. During the 500 years since the Conquest, Mayan tribes have adopted various new year dates and interpretations. In 1992, the University of Guatemala identified the July 26 date based on an eclipse of July 11, 1991 and the Dresden Codex. Arguelles interpreted that date as the new beginning of the solar year.

In 755 AD, Mayan Priests prophesied that the total solar eclipse of July 11, 1991 would herald two life altering events for humankind - Cosmic Awareness and Earth Changes. Shortly after 1:00 PM, on July 11, 1991, the prophecy seemingly began to unfold.

Beneath the eclipse that the Maya had labeled 'The Sixth Sun', a silvery disc shaped object hovered silently above Mexico City. 17 people, unknown to each other, in different locations of Mexico City, videotaped the UFO. This sighting became the earliest most documented mass sightings in history. For months, teams of international researchers from the U.S., Mexico, and Japan followed a wave of UFO activity that connected with the volcano, Mount Popocatepetl. Sightings still continue.

The End Times - A New Beginning

The end of times does not mean that the earth explodes and disappears into a black hole, but that a long period will be ended and that on a higher level a next period is started. The bad thing is that this transformation, as so often with a large improvement, is preceded by a lot of misery.

It is like the necessary struggle of the caterpillar to become a butterfly. The bible calls this turbulent period 'labor pains'. Just as expressively, the bible tells us that after this a period will start of a thousand years, in which 'tha satan' is chained; resulting in 'many many' years of peace. This whole situation reminds us of the story in which Jesus dies in a miserable way, rises from the dead and arrives at a higher level by ascending to heaven. 'This large time cycle has been thought since ancient times to represent a complete cycle of human spiritual advance.

      There are formula's which are applied to leap years and such. But there is an atomic clock (In Harwell or Greenwich I think) that keeps time accurate to a millesecond and adjustments are checked against this.

      It is noteworthy that so many revisions of time and events have taken place and calendars have changed accordingly

      RB, it is fascinating that so many prophecies, writings as well as scientific data, do target either 2012 or 2017 for the end of our planet. Great hub
