xx 2012: Your thoughts on the Mayan calendar mystery.
« Thread started on: May 28th, 2008, 2:36pm »

Thanks to April for setting this section up for discussion. With time speeding towards the Mayan calendar end date of December 21, 2012, several dozen books, documentaries and discussion groups have emerged trying to tackle the subject. What was the meaning behind the Mayan calendar ending on that particular date? Was this a warning of end times for planet earth, or just the place where they stopped making their calendar system? Many theories, some very scientific, some way out in left field, have popped up. One publication that I am currently reading by several scientist and theorists on the subject is called "The Mystery of 2012: Predictions, Prophecies & Possibilities". This is a very well written book by several authorities on the subject.

What are your thoughts on 2012? There will be those who sell all of their belongings and await the end of the earth. There will be those that will laugh it off and go about their daily lives as though nothing will happen at all. Will this be a major evolution for the human race? An awakening of the spirit and a shift into a higher form of spirituality and awareness? What scientific evidence is there about physical earth changes that may affect where and how we live on the planet post-2012? Will these earth changes produce disasters on a global scale that could wipe out a huge portion of the over 6 billion human inhabitants of earth? These are all questions that many people have leading up to this event. I don't believe this is another year 2000 computer crash scare. This is something we won't be able to fix by upgrading or reprogramming millions of computers. We can do things to prepare ourselves, while not going totally nuts about it. If we keep certain things in mind and make small but effective preparations we won't be too surprised if something DOES happen, and we won't be too put out if NOTHING happens at all. Please share your thoughts and ideas.

Well, we may be looking at a new world and a shift in consciousness to a higher dimension. I don't believe there will ever be an end. In the present day, the level of human suffering has become so great that to say we are out of balance and harmony with the universe, is a gross understatement.

You can feel something barreling down the pike for sure. Something has to give... it's interesting that the 1991 eclipse, and subsequent UFO sightings in Mexico city, coincided with the Mayan prediction about meeting the brothers from the sky. The sheer accuracy of the calendar and it's spiritual import, cannot, and should not be discounted or dismissed.

On the same note, I would have to stress that while we keep it within our consideration, we should not obsess either. Several accurate descriptions have occurred all over the globe through many different mediums and the world has not yet ended. Some predictions and theories have indeed occurred while others have just seemed to fizzle out.

The Mayan Calendar may indeed be accurate on a lot of counts, but we have to keep in mind that with anything man has his hand in, there is a certain degree of fault or inaccuracy.

As my husband just pointed out, our present day calendars end every year... while the Mayan calendar ends in 2012. Does that mean our world will end on Dec 31st? No. The Mayans could have just as well created a new calendar when that particular cycle ended. While we automatically assume they meant world destruction in 2012, who's to say there isn't more information from them we have yet to discover?

I don't believe in endings or doomsday predictions. Only transformations. It will be an interesting year to be alive in the physical construct we call life. What shall happen? Well, at the very least consciousness will expand within some and add to the totality of all being. What I mean is, there may be no physical change at all, but the fact that it's being talked about and pondered on, will push new minds beyond their self imposed limits into a greater state of being and conscious awareness.

That is how the world can and should be changed... through consciousness... not through wars and ego gratification. So, I think something will happen, but probably not anything that we expect or predict.

Nothing unusual will occur on 12/21/12. There is absolutely NO proof of anything bad happening. The Mayans were not a spiritual people and did not possess any knowledge of future events. Their calander stopped because their civilization collapsed. Also, no mention of 2012 was made by Nostradamus or the Book of Revelation or anywhere else for that matter. I see the 2012 hype as a way for certain people to profit from creating fear.

What happen to the Mayans? Everything I've read and watch on TV, they just vanish. I really don't think anything will happen on 2012. But I wonder if they were Ancient Astronauts rolleyes

Probably the same thing that happened to the Incas... the d**n Spanish Conquistadors, LOL. There will be changes again on Mother Earth. Poles will shift, natural disasters will ravage and change the landscape, and civilizations will be lost... but it won't have anything to do with doomsday predictions or prophecies. I do though disagree with Grey that the Mayans were not a spiritual people... and predictions, one way or another, whether they be that something or nothing will occur, are pure conjecture. It's still fun to discuss though.

Yes Zuma, it is fun to discuss. lol What I do not buy into is the 2012 doomsday crap. My problem is with the people who are profiting big time by creating fear of an impending event that will not even occur. It's the Y2K hype again, but this time on steroids. Predictions of doomsday have been foretold for 2000 years, but we are still here. Thank God. The year 100, 666, 1000, 1666 & 2000 were all supposed to bring world changing events that never materialized. In the case of the year 2000 (Y2K unevent), alot of people profited from other peoples fear. Now December21,2012 is the big money maker. They say that we will pass through the galactic equator in 2012 and the alignment will cause Earth changes. You don't pass through the equator of the Milky Way in one day or one year. We are there right now and will be for a long time. They mention Nostradamus and the Book of Relvelations. No mention of 2012 was ever made by Nostradamus or the Book of Revelations. I know that someone now claims to have found a lost prediction that Nostradamus made. Give me a break. As far as the Mayans go, just because their calandar ended on 12/21/12 means nothing. They were a primative people who practiced human sacrifice. So, that's where I stand on 2012.

Yup. Through it all the world keeps turning. The Mayans have always been fascinating to me. They were master astronomers and stone craftsmen. Really blows my mind the level of sophistication that went into the building of their cities and temples... truly amazing. And how about the death ball game they used to play? Lose the game, lose your life.... yeeeoowww! That would certainly put a new spin on professional sports. smiley

As far as 2012 goes? I think 2012 will come and 2012 will go, and 2013 will come and 2013 will go, etc, etc...

Everyone has opinions, but none of us really knows anything about what will or will not happen in 2012. Just because people are making money on books and whatever else they can sell, means nothing as far as what might happen. I don't happen to put any faith in anyone's interpretation of Nostradamus' writings, so even if someone had claimed to see 2012 in those tea leaves, it would prove nothing to me.

Yeah, there was a load of hype surrounding Y2K, but it was a real problem. Businesses and institutions spent tons of money avoiding catastrophe. They were almost completely successful, so now some say it was a hoax. The reality is that the power grid would have gone down, along with a lot of other things that would not have mattered with the power out, if the problem had been ignored. It would not have been the end of the world, of course, but there would have been massive chaos for an extended period. In the dead of winter. The hoarding of food, fuel, ammunition, and so on was a result of the hype, and has no bearing on the reality of the "Y2K problem."

I personally do not expect any sudden transformation or even any particularly interesting event when the Mayan calendar finally "runs down." But what do I know? My favorite quote concerning the topic was in a recent news article, which pointed out that the Mayan calendar "ends abruptly" on the winter solstice of that infamous year. Hmm. Just how does a calendar end if not abruptly? Does it lose a day here and there, then a couple of days now and then? Pretty soon whole weeks are missing? I don't recall ever seeing a calendar that does not "end abruptly."

Hey, it's good to see some activity here! smiley I have not been able to log in for some time, but tonight it worked for some reason. Maybe the planets were aligned correctly.

Why is 2012 any different from any other year? Oh yeah, that's because someone took the fact that the Mayans' stopped their calandar on a certain date and built this big doomsday scenario around it. What scares me is that there are so many people out there that have fallen for this crap. LMAO...
As far as Y2K goes; Y2K was an unevent. Thousands of companies bought into the impending event scenario and spent millions of dollars to prevent something that DID NOT HAPPENED. No they did not prevent anything. The event never materialized.
