Mayan Calendar End Date Misinterpreted: End Of The World Is 12/23/2012

Just when you thought all that “end of the world” stuff was over and done with, word out of Mexico has it that the Mayan long count calendar end date may actually correspond to Sunday, December 23, 2012, instead of the generally accepted date of Friday, December 21, 2012.

Carmen Rojas, archaeologists with Mexico’s national Institute of anthropology and history, said yesterday that the very intricate and interlocking Mayan calendar system may actually correlate to this upcoming Sunday as the end of the calendar instead of Friday the 21st.

The end of the 13th baktun cycle of the Mayans was never meant to indicate that this would be the final day in Earth’s existence, as Mayan petroglyphs in various locations connected to the Mayan Empire indicate dates thousands of years further in the future then December 21, 2012.

Mayan scholars have indicated that some calendar dates in relationship to certain cultural and political events of the day in Mayan culture, may have been modified over time, and such inconsistencies and misinterpretations have led them to believe that the actual end date of the Mayan long count calendar is on Sunday, December 23, 2012

“If you look at a book of Maya epigraphy, there are so many dates that could be commemorated. The glyphs also are not so easily interpreted. It depends on the correlation that you use.” Said Dr. Rojas, adding December 21 “is not a relevant date for us. It is an accident that someone would take and pull it out.”

In spite of all the recent hoopla about the potential for the end of the world on December 21, it has been a boon for tourism on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, as tourists have flocked to these areas in an attempt to satisfy their urge for adventure, or perhaps for a perceived spiritual awakening of sorts.

We shall see what Sunday brings, but don’t be surprised if were still all here on Monday morning.

      Mac, No one thing or government can control you or make you fear something if you don’t let it. The human brain is very powerful, and I would hope that after reading this, that you try and use your intelligence to re-arrange your thought process as to create an area of solitude for your spirit.

    The fact that the Mayan calendar ends in Dec. 2012 is no more an end of the world prediction, than the 2 digit year that computer programmers used in the 70’s and 80’s was a prediction that the world would end in 1999. The world is in for an unprecedented a$$ kicking in 2013 thanks to a evil 6 letter world called “credit”, which has been the bane of our civilization for the last few decades, and it may end up feeling like the end of the world to some, but judgement day it is not.

    I simply cannot believe the gullibility that has manifested itself over this debacle.
    “Of that day and hour knows no man but only my Father in Heaven” said the Lord Jesus Christ. Seems like he was right, doesn’t it?

      Val, All things begin and end with God above, and all else is mere conversation or visual eye candy for the brain to occupy itself while waiting for the creator to call. God Bless.
