2012: The Origination, the Science and the Doomsday Theory.

mayancalendar-mysticmamma.com_I’ve received quite a few emails over the past few weeks regarding the Mayan Calendar theory of doomsday, so I figured I’d write a small explanation and history:

Mayan society was an ancient civilisation that loved nothing better than solving maths problems. Their mathematical systems were made up of dots, lines and shells and even though they hadn’t discovered numbers, their knowledge was so advanced that their calculations were more accurate than those of their European counterparts who had already discovered numbers. Along with sums and maths quizzes, the Mayans loved calendars, so much so that they cross-referenced the day by using three different types – one including the “long count” calendar that some reference as ‘the decider’ of today.

Upon the rediscovery of the Mayans’ long count calendar, modern mathematicians number-crunched, decoded and rearranged it on to our modern Gregorian calendar. It was discovered that the long count would end on the exact date of 21 December 2012.

For mathematicians it denotes the end of the current Mayan calendar cycle; for others it predicts the end of the world.

Scientifically, there’s no merit to the entire claim. NASA themselves even made an effort to debunk the millions of emails they claim to have received. Their response was complex but simple enough to state that there are no large concerns for the world at the end of the year:

“Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012… Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then — just as your calendar begins again on January 1 — another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.”

    Some quotes from a relevant blog discussing the World Transformation Movement and how science can now explain the world, we no longer need mysticism or faith (like cultures that once-upon-a-time gave (killed) their first born to the lightening gods… science has since explained lightening)…

    “In the light of Griffiths work, this behavior is easily
    understandable, we can arrive at conclusions about our Human dark
    behavior, that are compassionate and humane, better still we can be left
    with enthusiasm and a realistic hope for the future. When we stop
    damming ourselves, because we understand how we arrived at this
    junction, we can start living free and fair lives based on knowing what
    we are.

    We have ZERO
    need to invoke Secret Societies, Nazi Moon Bases, manipulative Hyper
    Dimensional beings or corrupting Demons. The Alt Media circuit runs in
    endless circles, fear mongering, false predictions and implausible
    theories abound. Never do we see a cogent, organic answer to WHY we behave as we do, only complex puzzles, and unverifiable ‘Secrets’.

    Its always ‘They Make us do it’, or ‘We’ve been programmed from birth’,
    truth is hardly any of the Human race makes into adult hood undaunted by
    the Human Condition. We do what we do, because we didn’t have an answer
    that explains WHY we did what we did.

    Personally, I think Griffiths research provides that answer, and does
    so without dogma, political or religious. One feels a tangible relief,
    when the subject is understood, no need to kick oneself anymore.

    The social programming we do see and comment on in the Alt Media, may
    explain the symptoms of our collective alienation, but it doesn’t
    explain the cause of the desire to dominate. Until that was explained,
    we were doomed to carry on down the bitter road of alienation and self

    We don’t have to put up with ‘Not Knowing’ anymore, check out the WTM’s research, I think you’ll find it compelling.”
