Four days into 2012, and all is well.

4 days, 96 hours into 2012, 5 days to go until a full moon, and the all is well. Will we make it through another year? I think so! Illustration at end of post.

It seems pretty safe to safe to say the Mayans, who were correct about a lot of things but I think they missed the mark on Doomsday in 2012. “The Mayans speak of a dark rift or galactic plain.  They say that the end of an age, which can bring about world wide catastrophes (but not the end of the world) is caused by the world sitting on the what they call a dark rift.  Modern scientists speak of the earth passing through this dark rift, or galactic equinox or central plain.  This event refers to the cyclic and destructive gravitational influence caused by the massive black hole at the centre of our galaxy. Some scientists believe that this is behind the increase in magnitude and frequency of earthquakes, floods etc which our world and other planets in the solar system are experiencing… All the so-called “Mayan prophecies of 2012” are nothing more than wildly speculative extrapolations, which are based on the yet uncertain interpretations by scholars of Mayan hieroglyphs. However, the truth is that apart from the astrological convergence, there is little indication that the Mayans prophesied anything specific regarding the events of this distant future. The Mayans were not prophets; they were not even able to predict their own cultural extinction. They were great mathematicians and accomplished sky watchers, but they were also a brutally violent tribal people with a primitive understanding of natural phenomena, subscribing to archaic beliefs and the barbaric practices of blood-letting and human sacrifice.” …

…”DEC 21, 2012, The sun reaches a solstice. With Mayan mythology teaching that our sun is a god and the Milky Way is the gateway to life and death, the Mayans concluded that this intersection in the past must have been the moment of creation. Mayan hieroglyphs seem to indicate that they believed the next intersection in 2012 would be some sort of end and a new beginning of a cycle.”  Info/words from:

What do you think? I think not a Doomsday, maybe a cool new beginning? Big change can bring good things too!

All this Mayan chatter got the gang curious…..they traveled to Mexico to see for themselves. Pretty amazing stuff those Mayan built! The steps, the angles, all connect to sun/moon travels. They certainly DID know something!

Chichen Itza - Mayan Temple
All this Mayan talk and some folks decided to head over to Chitzen Itza, a Mayan temple that still stands.
