    A recent article in the Orlando Sentinel stated that on April 13, 2036, there is a 1 in 6250 chance that a massive 1000 ft. wide asteroid named "Apophis" could smash into the Earth with enough force to disintergrate a state.

    NASA claims that an asteroid this size hits the Earth every 1000 years and they are busy tracking this one to see where it is heading. Let's hope this one is a miss, because if it hits the Earth, it will result in quite a mess (considering that it would release the power of about 880 million tons of TNT).

    That sounds terrible and the object seems too heavy. Let us pray, oh God the almight take away this cup.

    According to the Mayan calender the world will end December 2012. Hawa Mayans walikua wana sifika kwa kuwa ahead of time for their time. Kitu amnacho sijui ni kwamba ni wao tu calender yao ina isia tarehe hiyo au ni ulikuwa utabiri kabisa kuwa dunia inaisha? I mean for a civilization which was considered good at foreseeing the future it's strange that they could predict their own demise. Na haya mambo ya mwisho wa dunia kila siku yanaongelewa. 2000 watu walisema mwisho wa dunia, 06/06/06 nayo waka sema ita kua mwisho wa dunia. Hollywood is just using this to make big money but I doubt that they actually believe that themselves. If you are a Christian or Muslim you will believe that no one knows the day or the hour but the Almighty God Himself.

    Mayan Prophecies and Calendar

    [​IMG]


    Most ancient civilizations found a way of marking time to predict changes that would affect their survival and destinies. These 'calendars' were often linked with one or more gods, who at some point in their progression, would return. Today, as human consciousness evolves in the age of healing, awareness, technology and reasoning, our attention is riveted to one calendar in particular, the Mayan Long Calendar, as something within its end time date, resonates for many souls. The date is December 21, 2012 (13.0.0.0.0 in the Long Count) as projected by Jose Arguelles and others. I have been taught that 13=4=closure or the end of linear time.

    Reality is a holographic construct create by the patterns of sacred geometry that repeat in cycles called linear time. Reality is myth, math, and metaphor. The movement of all consciousness follows a sequence called the golden spiral - the Fibonacci numbers published in 1202.

    There have been many calendars throughout history that do not necessarily correlate to our Gregorian calendar or the Mayan calendars. Therefore, how can one be sure that this date is the beginning of what some call a Golden Age? The term 'gold' takes us to alchemy now understood as a metaphor for the evolution of consciousness in the alchemy of time. It is something you feel within your soul, something that follows your life with synchronistic reminders that all is connected as consciousness moves through the gears, or wheels of time to evolve into something beyond the physical experience/experiment.

    Did the ancient Mayans know something that we don't? Are we meant to find and understand something as the date, December 21, 2012, comes closer? Look within your soul to determine a greater meaning. We are evolving, learning, and not by accident, putting the pieces of the puzzle together, as guided by the grids through which our consciousness experiences as our souls return 'home'.

    The Mayan Calendars

    There were 3 Mayan Calendars: Haab', Tzolk'in and Long.

    The Mayan Long Calendar speaks of the end of one cycle of time moving into the next on December 21, 2012.

    [​IMG]


    The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is a non-repeating, vigesimal (base-20) calendar used by several Mesoamerican cultures, most notably the Maya. For this reason, it is sometimes known as the Maya (or Mayan) Long Count calendar. Using a modified vigesimal tally, the Long Count calendar identifies a day by counting the number of days passed since August 11, 3114 BC (Gregorian). Because the Long Count calendar is non-repeating, it was widely used on monuments.

    Among other calendars devised in pre-Hispanic Mesoamerica, two of the most widely used were the 365-day solar calendar (Haab' in Mayan) and the 260-day ceremonial calendar, which had 20 periods of 13 days. This 260-day calendar was known as the Tzolk'in to the Maya and tonalpohualli to the Aztecs.

    [​IMG]

    Tzolk'in (Round)

    The Haab' and the Tzolk'in calendars identified and named the days, but not the years. The combination of a Haab' date and a Tzolk'in date was enough to identify a specific date to most people's satisfaction, as such a combination did not occur again for another 52 years, above general life expectancy.

    The Tzolk'in, the most fundamental and widely-attested of all the Maya calendars, was based in the 26,000-year cycle of the Pleiades, and was a pre-eminent component in the society and rituals of the ancient Maya. The tzolk'in calendar remains in use amongst several Maya communities in the Guatemalan highlands. Its use is marginal but spreading in this region, although opposition from Evangelical Christian converts has erased it from some communities.

    The word, meaning "count of days", was coined based on Yukatek Maya. The corresponding words in the K'iche' and Kaqchikel cultures of Guatemala, which have maintained an unbroken train of observance for over 500 years, are, respectively, Ajilabal q'ij and Cholq'ij. The actual names of this calendar as used by the pre-Columbian Maya are not known. The corresponding Postclassic Aztec calendar, probably based on extinct central Mexican observance, was called by them tonalpohualli, in the Nahuatl language.

    The Maya used several cycles of days, of which the two most important were the Tzolk'in, or Sacred Round of 260 days and the approximate solar year of 365 days or Haab. The Sacred Round combined the repeating cycle of numbers 1-13 with 20 day names ... so that any particular combination would recur in 13 x 20 or 260 days; the day name and the number changed together: 1 Imix, 2 Ik, 3 Akbal ... as we might say Monday 1, Tuesday 2, Wednesday 3, and so on.

    Because the two calendars were based on 365 days and 260 days respectively, the whole cycle would repeat itself every 52 Haab' years exactly. This period was known as a Calendar Round.

    To measure dates over periods longer than 52 years, the Mesoamericans devised the Long Count calendar.

    The Long Count calendar identifies a date by counting the number of days from August 11, 3114 BC. Rather than using a base-10 scheme, like Western numbering, the Long Count days were tallied in a base-20 scheme. Thus 0.0.0.1.5 is equal to 25, and 0.0.0.2.0 is equal to 40.

    The Long Count is not consistently base-20, however, since the second digit (from the right) only counts to 18 before resetting to zero. Thus 0.0.1.0.0 does not represent 400 days, but rather only 360 days.

    The short answer from the Maya is,
    It's not the end of the world!
