Mexico: Mayan ball court was celestial 'marker'
Friday, October 5, 2012 5:03pm
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican archaeologists say they have determined that the ancient Mayas built watchtower-style structures atop the ceremonial ball court at the temples of Chichen Itza to observe the equinoxes and solstices, and they said Friday that the discovery adds to understanding of the many layers of ritual significance that the ball game had for the culture.

The structures sit atop the low walls of the court, where the Mayas played a game that consisted, as far as experts can tell, of knocking a heavy, latex ball with their elbows, knees or hips, through a stone ring set in the walls.

The bases of the structures — essentially, look-out boxes set atop the walls, each one with a small slit running through it —had been det..

The ball represents the sun at the winter solstice. The goal ring for the ball represents the galactic center. Getting the ball in the ring ends the game, as getting the winter solstice sun at the galactic center ends the age/world. Read John Major Jenkins' Maya Cosmogenesis 2012.

Between the ballcourt game, the alignment the Chichen Itza pyramid was built for (sun and Pleadies in the zenith) and the end of the Long Count calendar, they encoded three astronomical methods of showing that our time is the end of the age or world.

The Bible also uses astronomical descriptions pointing to 2012, and much more so to December 21, 2019. Unless this is all symbolic, perhaps a seven year tribulation comes between 12/21/2012 and 12/21/2019.
