Mayan Predictions 2012
2012 Mayan Predictions
With the recent hubbub about the world coming to an end on December 21st 2012, we are looking for answers and quite honestly - someone to blame. This particular date was not picked out of a hat, but rather predicted by the Ancient Mayans. The Mayans are an ancient civilization skilled in mathematics and astrology. Through many calculations they came up with calendars quite similar to the lunar cycle. On December 21st 2012, the Mayan calendar signifying the fourth world period will reach its end resetting itself to 0.0.0.0. After this, the fifth world would begin the next day. Since many believe that the Mayan writings have accurately predicted events that have already taken place, this prophecy has quite a bunch of takers. However, are the Mayan 2012 predictions as reliable as we assume
2012 - Mayans Predict - End of The World
Firstly, it is important to realize that although the Mayan calendar does come to an end, the Mayans did not state an end for life on Earth. Instead they implied a sense of spiritual transition during this period. Since there are no Ancient Mayans surviving today historians find it rather hard to analyze the prediction for the correct answer. Furthermore, their prediction about the end of the world on December 21st 2012 is quite vague. The events have not been depicted their prophecy, which implies that the Mayan elders themselves were unsure.
Moreover, some historians claim the Mayans predicted a galactic alignment to take place on December 21st 2012. As a result of this alignment, Earth could be apparently destroyed. However, in reality this alignment takes place every winter. The Earth is 30,000 light years away from the center of the galaxy which is a rather safe distance. Other than the usual number of snow related issues life is not really in any danger of any kind. Nevertheless, some people assume the disaster and destruction on December 21st 2012. Mayan 2012 predictions definitely suggest an end of some kind. However, they do not mention anything about disasters occurring on December 21st 2012. These claims have been put forward by those who are combining prophecies made by other sources. Although there have been quite a lot of natural disasters and economic problems, it is essential that we realize the Earth has been was built by natural disasters and the mankind has experienced many economic problems in the past.
It is possible that the Mayan 2012 predictions might be accurate, but it is also possible that the apocalypse could be upon us at any time. It is important to understand that the world is not experiencing more disasters than before. The Earth has gone through worse periods throughout history and life has survived. In order to prepare yourself for the end of the world, research more on the events. It is best not to follow predictions but rather to find evidence for the end.
December 21st, 2012 Doomsday
In the Mayan calendar takes into account three important astronomical processes. This is a precession of Earth's rotation axis, the orientation of the ecliptic plane and the location of our solar system in the Milky Way galaxy. The duration of these processes used in the Mayan calendar. It is derived from the ancient South American civilization by the accurate astronomical observations. Perhaps this information shared with the Mayan people by aliens, or previous advanced civilization of the Earth.
The Mayan calendar is set to end on Dec 21, 2012. Many feel that this date is the day of end times and the world will be destroyed. Others feel this will be a time of major earth disasters, space changes, and mythical planets invading our galaxy along with strange Milky Way alignments. There is talk of a pole flip causing problems all over the earth or this being when we have a second coming of Christ.
Who were Mayans
The Mayans lived in subtropical Mesoamerica in parts of countries that we today know as Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize, Honduras, and the Yucatan peninsula area of Mexico.
The Mayan culture developed between 2500 B.C. and A.D. 250. The peak of Mayan civilization was in seen in the Classic period, which began in A.D. 250. The Mayan lasted for about another 700 years before suddenly disappearing as a major force; however, the Mayan belief did not die out then and hasn't to this day.
What is Mayan Calendar
The Mayan calendar is associated with nine creation cycles, which represent nine levels of consciousness or Underworlds as symbolized by the Mayan pyramids.
In the Mayan Calendar, the various cylindrical cycles of the Maya are related much as the cogs on the cogwheels in a machine. In principle this is not very different from the Gregorian way of counting time, where not only the date in the month changes every day, but also the weekday. In the same way, as the day sign changes in the sacred Mayan 260-day calendar, so does the number of that day and its place in the longer Heavens and Underworlds. A given day is hence defined with symbols that belong to many different calendars or counts.
What makes the Mayan calendar fundamentally different from other calendars in existence in the world is that its various symbols are reflective of the evolution of consciousness in the cosmos. This is in contrast to calendars from other cultures or religions that are based on astronomical cycles in our own solar system, such as the solar year or the moon cycle.
The ancient Mayan scriptures talk about the beginning of Mayan Calendar. The exact date for this beginning was apparently based on the day of the year, August 11, when the sun was in zenith in Izapa, where most likely this calendar first came into use..
A very significant misunderstanding prevails among modern people that the world would end on December 21, 2012. This is because Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012. While the debate continues as to whether the end of the calendar in December 2012 can be seen as a message of Doomsday or not is unending. Many say that Mayans just managed to make a calendar till that date; others say it's a hidden message of world ending in 2012... .the exact answer is difficult to find.
