Shall the Earth Life vanish in 2012 according to the MAYA’S Prediction?

(From the Mayan and Asteca Civilization)

 

21 December, 2012 : Is this the end according to the Mayan Culture and Calendar? 

 

Ominous 2010 hype puts Mexico on edge

Forget the Mayas´ gloomy predictions for 2012 — it´s the coming year that has many Mexicans worried.

 

Bicentennial Anxiety: Why Mexicans Are Wary of 2010 

Forget 2012. As far as many Mexicans are concerned, the ancient Mayas were being generous: the sky´s actually going to fall next year. Why? Because it´s 2010, Mexico´s bicentennial, and Mexican history has an eerie way of repeating itself. Mexico´s 1910 centennial, after all, saw the start of the bloody, decade-long Mexican Revolution, which killed more than a million people. And that cataclysm was precisely a century after the start of Mexico´s bloody, decade-long War of Independence in 1810.”

 

(The World  Press)

 

 

The Earth Life shall expire one day according to the "Islamic Belief". 

No one can predict the end of the world.

(Hiç kimse dünyanın sonu konusunda bir kehanette bulunamaz.)

 

P.S.

Archaeologists have demonstrated that HONDURAS (República de Honduras) had a rich, multi-ethnic prehistory in the past : The Mayan Civilization and Asteca Civilization were born in HONDURAS.HONDURAS is a very historic country for that.

Well, I think it is obvious that the world will end someday.  It is the natural order of the universe.  I don´t think you need to be a scientist, prophet or shaman of the Mayan people to come to this conclusion.  All of this 2012 business is taken from a Mayan codex that may or may not indicated that the world will end on December 21, 2012.  However, what many people don´t realize is when missionaries came to the "New World" there were hundreds of Mayan codexes.  Missionaries trying to convert the natives destroyed many of these ancient documents.  What we are left with is a scant few.  Nobody knows what was on the codexes that were destroyed.  Any information that we have today about what Mayans believed is just a fraction of what existed.  The Mayans that still exist today have been, for the most part, assimilated into western culture.  With that said, I think that much of Mayan civilization is still a mystery.

That´s an interesting read, Lis. Thanks

 

"Will it be a blow-up or a bliss-out? Doom or delight? That depends on which of the New Age prophets--an eclectic collection of self-appointed seers and mystics, with names such as "Valum Votan, closer of the cycle" and the "Cosmic Shaman of Galactic Structure"--one chooses to believe."

 

Self-appointed prophets? Ok, thinking of a catchy name to choose and organising my own cult...

 DD can now stand for DoomsDay...you can be "The Doomsday Prophet of TC"{#emotions_dlg.lol_fast}  If people send you enough money, perhaps you can guarantee them room on your spaceship!

Actually, Elisabeth, there are still Mayas who don´t even speak Spanish.  They have very little to do with others.  The other day  I passed a group who were speaking a strange language, it was clicky sounding.  It turns out they were a group of Mayas and were speaking Maya.  Quite beautiful peope.  It was a whole family here looking for work. I almost hired them, but thought against it.
