After watching the discovery program (mentioned in my previous blog) and doing some research into the subject of 2012 I have been able to read through tones of information concerning the end of the world come 2012. The Mayans predicted 2012 as the end of their calendar (after western researchers mastered the Mayans system and concluded that the end of their long count calendar approached 2012 on our Gregorian calendar.)
Mystics like Nostradamus and the fabled Mother Shipton Prophecies are being used to confirm the Mayan's predictions as well as one of the oldest prophetic works in recorded history the I Ching form China.
Granted, as people look at prophesy and work hard enough long enough they will come to similar conclusions - All prophesy a few years ago pointed at 1999 /2000 as the end of the world. Now it's been moved up to 2012 to jive with the Mayan calendar whose date ends with that number.
The Mayans may have concluded that the end of their Calendar was the end of the world - or just the end of another cycle - but to see a calendar that is thousands of years old essentially end in your time is disconcerting to say the least. That and the fact that the winter solstice on December 2012 (The predicted date the calendar ends) and the fact that we will be experiencing the most rare of astrological events on that day (galactic equator) does not bode well for the planet. Astrologists think that with this may come a bizarre turn for the worst in weather, and even that the poles may shift as they did 8,000 000 years ago. This event happens every 27,000 years and since there are no records back that far we can only assume what might occur.
Fact is when we look at "the end of the world" books like the Bible and the Quatrains of Nostradamus, they are always bleak and horrifying. It's been embedded in our DNA over the past few thousand years to fear the end, not to see it as an opportunity to change but to see it as a terrible suffering plague.
Who knows, the Bible states that no man shall ever know the true date the end will come, so why are we listening?
