Mayan 2012 Prediction

Updated on October 27, 2011

Mayan 2012 Prediction

We love the fear. Politicians use it, Discovery Channel uses it, Hollywood uses it... everybody loves the fear. It makes us consume they say. We eat up the fear while we eat up the comfort foods. Now since the Year 2000 was a bust and is gone and a few of the other "bad dates" are behind us; a whole lot of people are gearing up for December 21, 2012.

First off, sure you can see what they are saying because look 21 is 12 reversed. That is a bit spooky. It seems the Mayans who completely vanished about 1100 years ago had a calendar that ended December 21, 2012. They said there would be a new era but many less than reputable scientists have pointed to this as some kind of doomsday event.

Really? When were the people from again? Oh yeah, they lived around the year ZERO and they seemed to vanish by 1000AD. Without any warnings too. You'd think they'd chiselled something about their own end of days. Maybe, at some point the guy who had to chisel the rock said, "Enough is enough!!! I'm out of room on this stone!!!". And shortly after that he no doubt saw his own beating heart.

Which brings up my second point. Why are we going to listen to a group of people who thought there was a connection between growing crops and cutting out people's hearts while they watched? Especially, babies and women. Really? This is the group of experts? And (again) it seems to me they missed whatever was going to happen in 900AD when their asses disappeared but now we worry about what this bunch of savages said over a thousand years ago?

Sure sure... they made nice rock temples. They were an impressive culture. They also killed all the players of their losing "hipball" teams and wondered why the Mayan Hipball League was unsuccessful? But oh!! But oh!!! Is it a coincidence that a bunch of planets and stars align on December 21, 2012? What about that?!?!? Uhm, well if there was one thing these rock heads did know... it was the stars and their movements. They didn't have TV y'know? So they did manage to understand the movement of the planets and stars. You look at something for a few hundred years - you find a pattern - good job. They also thought the lights were the eyes of beasts looking down on them. So yeah, they ended on something logical like an alignment. Alignments happen all the time.

Now there is a 2012 movie to stoke up all the fear and nervousness... like there isn't enough of all that right now? It would be ok if people weren't so easily taken in by this nonsense. Why reject hundreds of actual scientists who are not impressed but instead listen to a handful of guys (who I wont even refer to as scientists) who say these rock savage baby killers predict we end in 2012 - that we actually do meet doomsday in 2012?

It's dumb. If you fear 2012. Stop it. If I'm wrong shoot me an email in 2013.

      Y2K was a big money maker and I suppose 2012 will be a big money maker too.

      I am just wondering why the Mayans could not predict their own demise? As far as I am concerned, they were demon worshippers and their entire civilization was devoted to these demon gods.

      I am a Christain and I don't put other gods before my God, and when you buy all the crap about 2012 that's what you are doing.

      i love your logic. makes perfect sense to me. incidentally, other peoples, not just the Mayans, disappeared without a trace. i believe the Anasazi cliff dwellers disappeared and no one knows where they went. excellent hub!

      Remember when we hit the year 2000? All the computers were supposed to crash. Didn't happen. I'll be the one shooting you that email in 2013 right here on hubpages. :)

      Thought that this hub had something to do with a squirrel? Can't find it...

      It's the end of a 26,000 year cycle of our solar system's rotation around the galaxy. That's why there are the 13 signs of Pisces, Aries, etc. Each age is 2000 years.The ancients knew all about this. Once this 26,000 cycle is over, guess what? We do it again! Some people hope this will be a consciousness raising event, and that would be nice, but I won't be holding my breath.

      No one does. So why freak out about it? That's how I feel. Let's take the bad stuff as it comes. Let's not burn ulcers over things that most likely wont happen. There is enough real stuff to deal with. I don't do worry.
