Re: A True story from my childhood regaurding the Myan Calender
My Parents in the early 70's had this round gold replica of the Mayan calender hanging on their large brick fireplace . My Mother had got the Mayan replica calender as a decoration ( the whole Spanish style was really in back then ) .

I used to stare at it and wonder what it was as a young child . The face in the middle was creepy and scared me.

One day this man came over . my Dad was a rocket scientist/ engineer and worked with this guy who was a higher up one of their top scientists in the department.
( We found out later he really came over to lay off my DAD cause they were letting people go after the space program had died down. He wanted to tell him in the private comfort of his home as liked my Dad and they were friends ) .

Anyways, this scientist who worked with my Father notices the Gold Mayan calender hanging over the fireplace , he walks over to it , touches it, and says to my Mother " you know what that represents and means don't you ?!!!"
...Then says to us
( right in front of me as a little kid )
" END GAME " ! -
THAT Calender represents and marks our end ,
when our world ends DEC of 2012 "!!! -
that's our death hanging on you wall "
and then he looked down at me and said -
" you will be all grown up then so don't worry that's like 40 years from now ! "

I now believe he was one of those professor types without any comment sense .

IT upset my Mother so much after he left she picked it up , took it outside and smashed it on the new driveway . It broke into little pieces . I think she was mainly upset that he had told her 6 year old kid about the end of the world , combined with the fact he had just let my Dad go from his engineer work at Rocketdyne ( my parents had just bought a brand new home ) .

I will never get that image out of my head of her breaking that Mayan replica ! she was so angry - it really affected me.

For years what he said that day has always haunted me . I used to be afraid for many years of this year and month . terrified in fact.

I have read and studied about Dec 2012 for years .

Way I see it now is
what will happen will happen
and there is nothing more I can do about it
( yes I have prepped a little )
but ok somethings are just out of our control
and I have accepted that .

IT no longer scares me .

Dec 2012 - is here
I am at peace

I am so sorry that you've spent 40 years of your life "prepping" for doom that will never come. To make it worse, had you done 5 minutes of research, you would have seen there is 0 evidence for the doom to begin with. What a wasted life.

I was able to read her story and get a sense that it created a SENSE OF DISCOMFORT and was RATHER DISCONCERTING. I do not get a sense that OP has been living under a bridge rocking back and forth for 40 years.

I hate people like this that twist and dramatize everything someone says. Go crawl into a corner and shut your trap, because you are simply an annoyance. There are several people in my family like this and I hate them all. So yeah, this touches a nerve. Start listening to people and maybe PROCESS SOME INFORMATION. Jerk.

I went to College . yes - was a few classes away from finishing as I got married and pregnant.
I was very successful in marketing stopped working so much when I lost my Father to cancer.
Recently I have been into photography and art and am told I have a gift for it ( have won awards ).
Sometimes I am detached .
I am a people person but I really only open up to few and am guarded . I am not as trusting of people as when I was younger.

Re: A True story from my childhood regaurding the Myan Calender
Hi Apocalypse girl. I too had a home where my parents hung that same golden Mayan plate. They hung it in the dining room. I remember looking at that plate as a child and thinking how odd it was. I came from a fundamentalist Christian home, so in hindsight... why would my parents hang such a pagan thing in the home? Anyways, I saw a documentary in the early 1980's on the Mayans and the end of the world and that is when I realized what that plate was... the Mayan calendar.
Anyways, I too have lived my whole life thinking that 2012 was the end of it all....
And now here we are December 1, 2012. Wow! Almost unbelievable... we are 20 days away from 'the end of the world'
I am not afraid at all. What will be will be.

Anyways, according to the documentary I saw, on December 21, 2012 our technology turns against us and attacks us.

Life is short. Live love and laugh. Smell the roses. Enjoy your morning coffee. Spend all the time you can with your children and always show them and tell them how much you love them. God is good!

Re: A True story from my childhood regaurding the Myan Calender
Actually it is the beginning not the end. You are spirit and eternal. Come to God and Jesus Christ and pray that you may be worthy to be with him when this event takes place. He has always saved his own, from Noah when this happened at that time to moses when this event happened again to Jesus Christ when he died on the cross this happened and now it will happen again. Some will be removed before this event happens others because of lack of belief will have to go through this because they chose not to believe in the only begotten son of GOD. It is the purification by fire. But those that are born with his spirit will not go through what's coming upon the earth.

Re: A True story from my childhood regaurding the Myan Calender
We know now, that the Mayan calendar does not predict the end of life, but the beginning of a new age. Things will be a lot different. We may not notice it right away, but something may happen (probably deep in some lab somewhere) that will spell a real sea change for humanity.

Some people believe it will be the first truly successful mating of a human being and an animal. This is strictly forbidden by God. Rumor has it that fallen angels pulled off this trick before God destroyed the world with Noah's flood and it is the reason God wiped everything out. This theory makes sense because the Bible suggests that our age will be like the age of Noah. Only, this time instead of fallen angles messing with human DNA it will be we ourselves who break the forbidden rule.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1212477


THIS...although I believe the days of noah could also include the return of the fallen ones...i'm 100% convinced about the animal/human hyrbids...which will be offered to us as a way to upgrade our DNA and become more "like the beast". Seems like every movie Hollywood puts out is along the aliens/transhumanism lines. I just saw the Bourne Legacy recently and the ENTIRE movie is about how they "upgraded" their agents to be better.

READ the book of Jasher, Enoch, and Genesis. Or just check out my thread here:

Thread: ANIMALS Containing HUMAN Material......"As in the Days of NOAH".
 Quoting: No More Lies


I agree, and add that the comment above does not necessarily rule out the return of the fallen angels. Probably posing as 'aliens' for the great deception. If any aliens show up I would be highly doubtful of their claims. Odds are they will not actually be aliens.

Re: A True story from my childhood regaurding the Myan Calender
Great story OP.

put together the engines....

Fallbrook, Chatsworth, Stony Point..... They were all Orchards back then, Simi Valley was virtually non-existant except orchards, the freeway used to stop halfway.

Family picnics at RocketDyne were a blast.
 Quoting: Redpaw360


Thank you ! pretty cool you know about Rocket-dyne !
Oh so they did the engines? I didn't know that like I said i was very young when all this happened . I just knew that my Dad knew some very smart people and that he had to always wear this white starched shirt and tie ( after he got laid off he tossed them all out and refused to wear ties lol )

Didn't The Simi Valley division have some kind of nuclear accident ?!

yes I am pretty sure he was in Chatsworth I remember that.
And the picnics they were amazing !!!
They had fun things for the kids to do.
One time they even had pony rides
and these big wavy amusement park type slides
( like the kind they had in that 70s Bananna splits show )
you would slide down in potato sacks !

Did you ever go to those picnics AC ?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27951003


Yes, the location is in the Santa Susanna hills west of West Hills and South of Simi Valley. They still try to deny any of this.

The picnics is where my father and I got into Archery, yes, they taught and provided the kids with real bows and arrows. The slides, the pony rides and all the workers were one big family for a while.

My father always assumed that the murder of JFK, was to blame for the massive firing of employees. He came home that day and said that quite a few of the workers and upper execs were cheering.

I was also there for the Van Normand dam evacuation, Hal Fishman of Channel 5 news broadcast from Toys R Us following the 71 quake.

I remember Hal as I stood next to him telling the live viewers that authorities believed the Los Angeles spillways might not be able to handle and divert the flood from our location.

Up until 1990 ish, you used to be able to hear the rocket engines being tested in the Santa Susannas regularly. On Saturday nights they'd fire lasers across the valley from west hills rocket dyne to unknown location in the east..... You'd see the laser 100' off the ground if you looked closely after midnight.

Well Dads reaction was one of shock and disbelief. He had worked so hard to become an engineer and was top in his field . He had worked his way up in the Navy and had a good paying job and was well respected ( he was a natural at putting things together and had an amazing mind ) .
The scientist guy lived close by and would come over from time to time as he liked my Dad .
I dont remember much about how my Dad reacted ( he was always had an amazing attitude and was good at hiding his emotions ) . I mainly remember the horrified look on my Mothers face when the guy pointed to her Mayan wall hanging and told her that the it represented the date the world would END " in front of her young child .

Just was watching the History Channel last night they were saying something to the effect that bigfoot was an ape human/ experiment. then i just read on here a thread about Bigfoot DNA coming back and that he is a human hybrid?!
Thread: Bigfoot DNA study is finished
There was also a scientist in Russia that found he could only breed monkeys and humans if they used the male sperm from the monkey and was almost successful but was stopped . n the 1920s and 30s Soviet scientist Dr. Ilya Ivanov began a series of disturbing experiments to cross breed humans with apes. At first he tried to make female apes pregnant using humans as the fathers. His experiments grew so grotesque he was expelled from French Guinea in Africa when he attempted to make women pregnant using apes as the fathers. [link to en.wikipedia.org]
this is interesting and a little scary ( its prob where writers back in the 60s got the whole Idea for the planet of the apes movies ) .
With Technology being so advanced now who knows what they might try .

Okay, this is getting strange.

My dad was recruited from the navy as well, he worked there designing the rocket motors and somewhere lost in time is our family in a picture standing next to the rocket motor outside the facility there at Rocketdyne.

Fast forward to Archery.... Yes, but not standard bows and arrows, I switched to crossbows. I currently use a Ghost 350. In my opinion there is nothing better than this model for the money and accuracy. It was an upgrade from a Barnett commando model I've used for decades.

There are strange parallels between us, our age, our history, most likely our fathers or our neighborhoods as well.

Do you remember Builders Emporium on White Oak & Sherman Way?, how about the early Fallbrook Mall?.....

Ever climb Stony Point? At the end of Topanga Canyon as a child with your parents?

Good times.

I was also there for the Van Normand dam evacuation, Hal Fishman of Channel 5 news broadcast from Toys R Us following the 71 quake.

I remember Hal as I stood next to him telling the live viewers that authorities believed the Los Angeles spillways might not be able to handle and divert the flood from our location.

Up until 1990 ish, you used to be able to hear the rocket engines being tested in the Santa Susannas regularly. On Saturday nights they'd fire lasers across the valley from west hills rocket dyne to unknown location in the east..... You'd see the laser 100' off the ground if you looked closely after midnight.

very cool redpaw !

Yes my Dad told me that they were like a family it was hard for him at first to leave ( but then he got so busy rebuilding after the 71 quake he had a whole new outook for being outdoors and free in his building ventures )

... loved reading your memory's of it thank you so much for sharing
are you still into Archery ? (something my oldest daughter wants to learn . )
It would have been amazing to see those lasers going out across Simi valley ( my best friend lives out there now and I often go out that way ) !

Okay, this is getting strange.

My dad was recruited from the navy as well, he worked there designing the rocket motors and somewhere lost in time is our family in a picture standing next to the rocket motor outside the facility there at Rocketdyne.

Fast forward to Archery.... Yes, but not standard bows and arrows, I switched to crossbows. I currently use a Ghost 350. In my opinion there is nothing better than this model for the money and accuracy. It was an upgrade from a Barnett commando model I've used for decades.

There are strange parallels between us, our age, our history, most likely our fathers or our neighborhoods as well.

Do you remember Builders Emporium on White Oak & Sherman Way?, how about the early Fallbrook Mall?.....

Ever climb Stony Point? At the end of Topanga Canyon as a child with your parents?

Good times.
 Quoting: Redpaw360




Yes I have climbed up Stoney point many times in fact i used to live not far from there in Canoga Park ... ( i met the love of my just down the hill from that on Tapanga canyon at the 7-11 there )
and yes used to go to the builders Emporium all the time my Dad owned a construction business in the 80s summertime's i would work with him ( painting ) and we would go there! ..
Ok and I used to work at the Fallbrook mall selling animated children's educational videos .
Hey remember kiddie land on Tapanga redpaw ? wow that goes way back ! ...

We are brainwashed into thinking that Empires mean World.


It will be the beginning of a new paradigm.

Re: A True story from my childhood regaurding the Myan Calender
Too strange......

Way too eerie.....

It's like lines are being connected between long ago friends.

I'll continue this conversation later, the day is young and I have to get a few things done...

But, I remember every bit of my childhood, including newspaper drives at our local elementary school. The entire school got into this, local schools battled each other for largest collections.....it would start before dawn and go till noon. Large trucks would come by and record your tonnage and declare winners...

We must share similar timelines, something.... And yet, here we are.

Oh, and one more....

If we didn't go to the beach, we'd hit up the place on Venture Blvd?, that had the trampolines...it was an icon for its time.

Talk later, this is unreal. If we went to the same schools, I'll swear it is a new beginning of timelines or something of that nature.
