It’s long been my belief that the Mayan calendar prediction was some sort of misunderstanding on our part. I wondered if perhaps they just didn’t get a chance to calculate past 12/21/2012 and westerners read this as the end of all ends. Well, the Mayans are finally speaking out about this and according to them, they don’t have a prediction for the end of time happening in 12-21-20012. They believe the world will go on. Mayan elders are sick of getting letters from little kids worried that they are going to die before growing up or being hounded by New Agers who have come to believe this. In a recent AP article all of this is detailed.
Here’s an excerpt follow the link provided to read the rest of the article:
Definitely not, the Mayan Indian elder insists. “I came back from England last year and, man, they had me fed up with this stuff.”
It can only get worse for him. Next month Hollywood’s “2012” opens in cinemas, featuring earthquakes, meteor showers and a tsunami dumping an aircraft carrier on the White House. At Cornell University, Ann Martin, who runs the “Curious? Ask an Astronomer” Web site, says people are scared.
“It’s too bad that we’re getting e-mails from fourth-graders who are saying that they’re too young to die,” Martin said. “We had a mother of two young children who was afraid she wouldn’t live to see them grow up.”Chile Pixtun, a Guatemalan, says the doomsday theories spring from Western, not Mayan ideas.
A significant time period for the Mayas does end on the date, and enthusiasts have found a series of astronomical alignments they say coincide in 2012, including one that happens roughly only once every 25,800 years. But most archaeologists, astronomers and Maya say the only thing likely to hit Earth is a meteor shower of New Age philosophy, pop astronomy, Internet doomsday rumors and TV specials such as one on the History Channel which mixes “predictions” from Nostradamus and the Mayas and asks: “Is 2012 the year the cosmic clock finally winds down to zero days, zero hope?” It may sound all too much like other doomsday scenarios of recent decades — the 1987 Harmonic Convergence, the Jupiter Effect or “Planet X.” But this one has some grains of archaeological basis. One of them is Monument Six. Found at an obscure ruin in southern Mexico during highway construction in the 1960s, the stone tablet almost didn’t survive; the site was largely paved over and parts of the tablet were looted.

Next I will tackle the H1N1 virus and shot. I’ve been asked to look into it. I’m curious as well. I’ll let everyone know soon what information I can psychically dig up.
Best wishes to all,
