Many people, which includes some of my friends, are confused of the complexities of the 2012 prophecies --- Nibiru, Nostradamus' predictions, end of the Mayan calendar etc. According to an article I read few days back, much of these prophecies are the result of the so-called "Mayan Calendar". Phew! What the heck is this? Why some people seems so much interested in a calendar made thousand years ago?" you may ask. I'm not an expert about this "2012 thing" but I'll try to give you the very basic surrounding this.
The Mayan calendar was made by the Mayans of Central America, obviously. This civilization were extremely advanced in areas related to science-time knowledge. They developed the most advanced mathematics and astronomy of their day. The Mayans built amazing structures that is beyond the capabilities of the "modern man". At the peak of their civilization from the 5th to 9th centuries AD, Mayan cities are among the largest in the world.
The Mayans were also incredible keepers of ancient and sacred knowledge - probably originating from sources not apparent at this time - that they were able to construct calendars which charted forthcoming great world events. They forecasted that at the end of the 'Long Count' calendar which is lasting 5,125 years, the world will end. According to them, it is the end of days as we know it, nothing more and nothing less.
Looking back at history, it can be noticed that there has been major catastrophes that struck the Earth every quarter of the "Long Cycle". Such events are documented as the "Great Flood", the sinking of Atlantis etc. And, it is said that the final quarter is set on December 21, 2012.
If the destruction will be similar to the one in Noah's time, well, we can never be sure unless it happens.
***In the past, there are several situations like this that sprang like mushrooms. Can you remember the rumored doomsday in 2003? Or the Y2K? I think (and I hope) that they are all the same.
But if it's true, Nibiru, Maya or whatever it is, we're going to die and perish in the end anyway. *wink* LOL. Nanakot ba?
Last Sunday, Cammille egged me to watch the movie that is stirring a lot of fuzz on the past weeks, "2012". I must say that the movie is wonderfully-crafted. Two thumbs up for Emmerich and all the people behind it.
