2012 Question: What Date Was the Mayan 2012 End Of World Info Decoded?
Tonight I watched a documentary on 2012 that was on the History Channel. I thought it was decently done. But there was information missing and I wanted that info. So I'll ask here and see if someon on GLP knows the answer and can direct me to that web site.

What date Was the Mayan 2012 End Of World Info Decoded? Also what date was the Mayan 2012 calender found? I just want to see how long this 2012 info has been known by the public, but also when this Mayan Calender was discovered.

That is a common misconception.

Tha mayans simply did not care to calculate the calendar past 2012. It does not mean the world will end in 2012.

I saw that show and it referenced the 'beginning of the 5th age' was around August 11th, 3114 B.C. ... anyways, their cycle is something like 5125.36 yrs and this one ended 2012 and the new age began at that point.


Here's a great link to an article that talks specifically about this...

You asked a good question because I couldn't find the answer using serch engines. I was hoping to find a website that had a time line of the discovery of the Mayan calendars but none of these web pages had the info you seek. Now I want to know too.

i figured it out in 96.The symbology encoded in a simple design seen throughout Meso-America 5 stepped frets bring you to the spiral of the milky way.Cross it then 5 steps(suns,or ages ,worlds)back.Its the precession of equinoxes (and the period of whatever it is the Sun orbits)The pope tried real hard to find out and suppress it when he did.

It is known that the Mayans used at least 2 calendars, one of which ended in 1984 , the year that the planets lined up.
P.S.
NOTHING HAPPENED !! that time.

Such a typical uneducated response from the resident shill.. give her a round of applause ladies and gentlemen!

The Mayans were masters of astronomy, they calculated the calendar to end on 2012 for a reason, not because they just didn't care to make another calendar afterwards.

Your right that the world won't end.. its going to be transformed beyond our belief, as are we..

My question still hasn't got an answer. Somewhere someone knows who deciphered the 12-21-2012 Mayan calender and determined this date and what the date meant for the Maye.

If nobody can come up with this answer then maybe the whole 2012 thing is a hoax. It shouldn't be that hard to find this info but it's not found by me, and no one responding to the thread yet has given the information.

So I've turned to you guys to see who knows this info.

12-21 21-12 . 2012 is in the 21st century .

12:21 added to 21:12 = 33:33. Jesus CHRIST ASCENDED at the RIPE AGE of 33. 33:33 is the TRIUNE of 11:11. The TIME again for CHRIST to DESCEND to EARTH for JUDGMENT.

Astronomical clues crack Mayan calendar's code

* 03 April 1993
* From New Scientist Print Edition.
* BRIAN HOMEWOOD , RIO DE JANEIRO

A calendar that could unravel the history of the Maya Indians has been deciphered after meticulous study of four Mayan manuscripts. Franz Joseph Hochleitner, an archaeologist at the Federal University of Juiz de Fora in Brazil, says the calendar will allow him to date important events described in the documents. 'These manuscripts depict a lot of dynastic history but at the moment, without any dates, we can't say what is happening,' he says.

The Maya lived in the forests of what is now Guatemala, Honduras and southern Mexico. Their civilisation was one of the most advanced in the Americas and they recorded their history. But little is known of the Maya because only four of their manuscripts survived plundering by the conquistadors. They are kept in museums in Dresden, Paris, Madrid and the US.

Mayan hieroglyphics have proved particularly difficult to untangle. The Maya had a complex system of calendars, and parts of three calendars have been deciphered from some of the preserved manuscripts. Hochleitner has now found a fourth calendar which uses a system of hieroglyphics to represent dates and appears in all four manuscripts.

The key to recognising the new calendar was the discovery that a 'chuen figure', the head of a rain god, represents a period of time, and that all dates are connected with some astronomical event, such as an eclipse or particular positions of planets or comets. The chuen figure represents 'katuns' - periods of 20 years of 360 days - while dots and dashes represent years, months and days.

Hochleitner has worked out how Mayan dates relate to the modern calendar, and hence to astronomical events. The Maya timed their most important ceremonies to tie in with such events, the most important of which was the appearance of Venus. On this day, they held religious festivals with human sacrifices. Perfect accuracy was demanded from the astronomers who predicted the dates. Execution was the usual penalty for getting it wrong. [link to www.newscientist.com]
