End of Days or simply a New Beginning?
End of Days or simply a New Beginning?

The Mayan civilisation roughly 3,900 BC developed the most accurate calendric system ever devised, far more accurate than the Gregorian calendar on which we base our calendar today. This calendar ends on the 21st of December 2012, marking the end of the fourth age of man. This date is not only significant for the Mayans but shared by many cultures: Hopi Indians, Maoris, Zulu, Hindus, Incas, Aztecs, Dogon, Pueblo, Cherokee, Tibetan and Egyptians to name a few. The significance of this date varies within each culture. However it generally marks either major catastrophe: collision of a meteorite, inverted poles or the end of life on earth. Perhaps it will be a major change like spiritual renewal, return of alien masters, emergence of the fifth world, coming of the Golden Age or many other interpretations. But one point remains, all these cultures and their individual calendars based on generations of astral study, all agree on this timeline. So what will happen on the 21/12/2012?
Scientifically they have proven that in earth’s history there have been dramatic events that occur approximately every 4,000 years. This comes from geological evidence as well as written records and oral history. Events like The Great Flood, Ice Age and Asteroid impact are well-known and documented. And the earth is still here. Great losses of life have occurred, but as a planet we are still here.
So how did the Mayan know so much? The Maya worshipped a pantheon of deities, and rulers believed they were the descendants of Mayan Gods and often engaged in blood-letting as a sacrifice. Among these deities were Gods that were claimed to have come from the stars, with the Maya, from the star system ‘Pleiades’. These visiting Gods would come and go in flying fireballs and the last of them discussed over the last few thousand years was an Annuk Demigod known as Quetzalcoatl. Like Jesus, Mohammad and all the Demigods, he taught principles of peace and kindness. He was described as a tall, white skinned, blonde hair, blue-eyed humanoid with a beard. This description is identical with the descriptions of Enki in the ancient Sumerian culture. The Inca relate the same experience, being taught by these beings. They knew the earth was round centuries before the western world and Inca ruins reveal impossible feats, like a 20,000 ton block of stone at the pinnacle, over 13000 feet high.
The Mayan culture revolved around time. Priests were consulted on all matters including religious, agricultural and civil matters. Everything was based on maths using only three symbols: a shell-shaped glyph for zero, a dot for one and a bar for five. Let it be said that zero was so abstract for this early culture, even the Romans had no concept. From these basic beginnings the Maya devised many calendars to do with astrology, cycles of weather, agriculture and all aspects of their lives.
Our modern calendar was first introduced in 1582 in Europe, based on the Gregorian calendar, which calculated the Earth’s orbit to take 365.25 days. It was 0.0003 of a day too much. Without the use of instruments the Mayan calculated a year of 365.2420 days, only 0.0002 of a day short.
So we must acknowledge the accuracy of this ancient people and at least be aware of this prediction. Perhaps the world won’t end 21st December 2012, but there seems much knowledge that suggests there will be some event to mark this date. Whether you believe the bible, end of days, or simply think this is a whole lot of bunkum, the ancient culture have a lot of unexplained knowledge that raises many questions.
I believe that our earth is due for a shakeup. We simply can’t keep abusing our mother earth without a major ramification. We are already feeling the affects of our rampant pollution and disregard for nature. Perhaps it will only take some catastrophe before we start to see what we’re doing.
Regardless, on the 21st December 2012, I’ll be sitting with my kids on our veranda, sipping a scotch and looking up at that infinite sky. It will be beautiful and if it all falls down, so be it. It will still be beautiful.
