BREAKING! - Mayan Scientists say 2012 Apocalypse NOT HAPPENING - Ancient Mayan's never said the World was ending in 2012!
Experts meet to discuss Maya calendar, debunk end-of-world stories
Published October 01, 2012 - Associated Press


MEXICO CITY – As the clock winds down to Dec. 21, experts on the Mayan calendar have been racing to convince people that the Mayas didn't predict an apocalypse for the end of this year.

Some experts are now saying the Mayas may indeed have made prophecies, just not about the end of the world.

Archaeologists, anthropologists and other experts met Friday in the southern Mexico city of Merida to discuss the implications of the Mayan Long Count calendar, which is made up of 394-year periods called baktuns.

Experts estimate the system starts counting at 3114 B.C., and will have run through 13 baktuns, or 5,125 years, around Dec. 21. Experts say 13 was a significant number for the Mayans, and the end of that cycle would be a milestone — but not an end.

Fears that the calendar does point to the end have circulated in recent years. People in that camp believe the Maya may have been privy to impending astronomical disasters that would coincide with 2012, ranging from explosive storms on the surface of the sun that could knock out power grids to a galactic alignment that could trigger a reversal in Earth's magnetic field.

Mexican government archaeologist Alfredo Barrera said Friday that the Mayas did prophesize, but perhaps about more humdrum events like droughts or disease outbreaks.

"The Mayas did make prophecies, but not in a fatalistic sense, but rather about events that, in their cyclical conception of history, could be repeated in the future," said Barrera, of the National Institute of Anthropology and History.

Experts stressed that the ancient Mayas, whose "classic" culture of writing, astronomy and temple complexes flourished from A.D. 300 to 900, were extremely interested in future events, far beyond Dec. 21.

"There are many ancient Maya monuments that discuss events far into the future from now," wrote Geoffrey Braswell, an anthropologist at the University of California, San Diego. "The ancient Maya clearly believed things would happen far into the future from now."

"The king of Palenque, K'inich Hanaab Pakal, believed he would return to the Earth a couple of thousand years from now in the future," Braswell wrote in an email to The Associated Press. "Moreover, other monuments discuss events even before the creation in 3114 B.C."

Only a couple of references to the 2012 date equivalency have been found carved in stone at Mayan sites, and neither refers to an apocalypse, experts say.

Such apocalyptic visions have been common for more than 1,000 years in Western, Christian thinking, and are not native to Mayan thought.

"This is thinking that, in truth, has nothing to do with Mayan culture," said Alexander Voss, an anthropologist at the University Of Quintana Roo, a state on Mexico's Caribbean coast. "This thing about looking for end-times is not something that comes from Mayan culture."

Braswell compared the Mayan calendar, with its system of cycles within cycles, to the series of synchronized wheels contained in old, analogue car odometers.

"The Maya long count system is like a car odometer," Braswell wrote. "[The odometer on] my first car only had six wheels so it went up to 99,999.9 miles. That didn't mean the car would explode after reaching 100,000 miles."

Psalm 90:4 .. 2 Peter 3:8
1 Day to God, is 1000 years on Earth.

Do the Math, Genesis was the Neolithic Revolution!

The 7 "Days" of Creation (including His 1 Day of Rest) were actually 7000 years, add that to the current 6000 Years of the Hebrew Calender dating Genesis to the Present, and you have 12,000 - 14,000 years! Right smack in the middle of the Neolithic Revolution, when the "Homo Sapien" species learned how to... "grow a brain"!

It's stated right in the Article that I posted...

"The king of Palenque, K'inich Hanaab Pakal, believed he would return to the Earth a couple of thousand years from now in the future," Braswell wrote in an email to The Associated Press. "Moreover, other monuments discuss events even before the creation in 3114 B.C."


This prophecy regarding King Pakal is a very well known prophecy and was part of the basis for History Channels special "Apocalypse Island" where two guys go to an Island in the South Pacific because one of them believes some huge rock is an ancient Mayan carving of King Pakal, and that it might even mark where his Tomb is and that its discovery signifies Pakal's return...

Pakal himself believed that he would return on his 3000th Birthday or something like that, and that he would return as a GOD who will be the Savior of the Mayan people...

Thus, they predicted that a GOD would return.

The Mayan calender is a circle there is no end to a circle it just starts over. It is a bounded infinity.

What should be questioned is what did the Mayans attempt to signify with the timing of the end of their long count calendar. I read an article from 1995 by John Major Jenkins last night that makes the case that the calender was created to coincide with an end date in mind (Winter Solstice 2012) as opposed to being created based on a specific starting point.

We know from the geolotical record that the Earth has experienced periodic and cyclical catastrophes and extinction level events. The Mayan Calendar and their prophecies of the various worlds being destroyed by certain elements should be examined closely. Mayan say we are in the 4th World (age) and when it is destroyed we will enter the 5th World. In this sense the world (in totality) never ends, but world ages do. What does this signify and how will it materialize? That is the question.

lol the Mayan calendar is not even that accurate

the Maya calendar was not as accurate as the Roman Julian calendar. When compared to the solar year, the Julian calendar had an error rate of 1 day every 128 years. The modern Gregorian calendar is substantially more accurate, with an error rate of 1 day every 3,300 years. In contrast, the Maya calendar, which did not use any system of leap days, had an error rate of 1 day every 4 years when compared to the solar year.
