No Doomsday in 2012

No Doomsday in 2012

Written by Ian O'Neill

pparently, the world is going to end on December 21st, 2012. Yes, you read correctly, in some way, shape or form, the Earth (or at least a large portion of humans on the planet) will cease to exist. Stop planning your careers, don't bother buying a house, and be sure to spend the last years of your life doing something you always wanted to do but never had the time. Now you have the time, four years of time, to enjoy yourselves before… the end.

So what is all this crazy talk? We've all heard these doomsday predictions before, we're still here, and the planet is still here, why is 2012 so important? Well, the Mayan calendar stops at the end of the year 2012, churning up all sorts of religious, scientific, astrological and historic reasons why this calendar foretells the end of life as we know it. The Mayan Prophecy is gaining strength and appears to be worrying people in all areas of society. Forget Nostradamus, forget the Y2K bug, forget the credit crunch, this event is predicted to be huge and many wholeheartedly believe this is going to happen for real. Planet X could even be making a comeback.

For all those 2012 Mayan Prophecy believers out there, I have bad news. There is going to be no doomsday event in 2012, and here's why…

The extent of the Mayan empire

The Mayan Calendar
So what is the Mayan Calendar? The calendar was constructed by an advanced civilization called the Mayans around 250-900 AD. Evidence for the Maya empire stretches around most parts of the southern states of Mexico and reaches down to the current geological locations of Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador and some of Honduras. The people living in Mayan society exhibited very advanced written skills and had an amazing ability when constructing cities and urban planning. The Mayans are probably most famous for their pyramids and other intricate and grand buildings. The people of Maya had a huge impact on Central American culture, not just within their civilization, but with other indigenous populations in the region. Significant numbers of Mayans still live today, continuing their age-old traditions.

The Mayans used many different calendars and viewed time as a meshing of spiritual cycles. While the calendars had practical uses, such as social, agricultural, commercial and administrative tasks, there was a very heavy religious element. Each day had a patron spirit, signifying that each day had specific use. This contrasts greatly with our modern Gregorian calendar which primarily sets the administrative, social and economic dates.

Most of the Mayan calendars were short. The Tzolk'in calendar lasted for 260 days and the Haab' approximated the solar year of 365 days. The Mayans then combined both the Tzolk'in and the Haab' to form the "Calendar Round", a cycle lasting 52 Haab's (around 52 years, or the approximate length of a generation). Within the Calendar Round were the trecena (13 day cycle) and the veintena (20 day cycle). Obviously, this system would only be of use when considering the 18,980 unique days over the course of 52 years. In addition to these systems, the Mayans also had the "Venus Cycle". Being keen and highly accurate astronomers they formed a calendar based on the location of Venus in the night sky. It's also possible they did the same with the other planets in the Solar System.

Using the Calendar Round is great if you simply wanted to remember the date of your birthday or significant religious periods, but what about recording history? There was no way to record a date older than 52 years.

The end of the Long Count = the end of the Earth?
The Mayans had a solution. Using an innovative method, they were able to expand on the 52 year Calendar Round. Up to this point, the Mayan Calendar may have sounded a little archaic - after all, it was possibly based on religious belief, the menstrual cycle, mathematical calculations using the numbers 13 and 20 as the base units and a heavy mix of astrological myth. The only principal correlation with the modern calendar is the Haab' that recognised there were 365 days in one solar year (it's not clear whether the Mayans accounted for leap years). The answer to a longer calendar could be found in the "Long Count", a calendar lasting 5126 years.

I'm personally very impressed with this dating system. For starters, it is numerically predictable and it can accurately pinpoint historical dates. However, it depends on a base unit of 20 (where modern calendars use a base unit of 10). So how does this work?

The base year for the Mayan Long Count starts at "". Each zero goes from 0-19 and each represent a tally of Mayan days. So, for example, the first day in the Long Count is denoted as On the 19th day we'll have, on the 20th day it goes up one level and we'll have This count continues until (about one year), (about 20 years) and (about 400 years). Therefore, if I pick an arbitrary date of, this represents the Mayan date of approximately 1012 years, 7 months and 1 day.

This is all very interesting, but what has this got to do with the end of the world? The Mayan Prophecy is wholly based on the assumption that something bad is going to happen when the Mayan Long Count calendar runs out. Experts are divided as to when the Long Count ends, but as the Maya used the numbers of 13 and 20 at the root of their numerical systems, the last day could occur on When does this happen? Well, represents 5126 years and the Long Count started on, which corresponds to the modern date of August 11th 3114 BC. Have you seen the problem yet? The Mayan Long Count ends 5126 years later on December 21st, 2012.

When something ends (even something as innocent as an ancient calendar), people seem to think up the most extreme possibilities for the end of civilization as we know it. A brief scan of the internet will pull up the most popular to some very weird ways that we will, with little logical thought, be wiped off the face of the planet. Archaeologists and mythologists on the other hand believe that the Mayans predicted an age of enlightenment when comes around; there isn't actually much evidence to suggest doomsday will strike. If anything, the Mayans predict a religious miracle, not anything sinister.

Myths are abound and seem to be fuelling movie storylines. It looks like the new Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is even based around the Mayan myth that 13 crystal skulls can save humanity from certain doom. This myth says that if the 13 ancient skulls are not brought together at the right time, the Earth will be knocked off its axis. This might be a great plotline for blockbuster movies, but it also highlights the hype that can be stirred, lighting up religious, scientific and not-so-scientific ideas that the world is doomed.

Could an asteroid wipe out the Earth? (NASA)

Some of the most popular space-based threats to the Earth and mankind focus on Planet X wiping most life off the planet, meteorite impacts, black holes, killer solar flares, Gamma Ray Bursts from star systems, a rapid ice age and a polar (magnetic) shift. There is so much evidence against these things happening in 2012, it's shocking just how much of a following they have generated. Each of the above "threats" needs their own devoted article as to why there is no hard evidence to support the hype.

But the fact remains, the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy is purely based on a calendar which we believe hasn't been designed to calculate dates beyond 2012. Mayan archaeo-astronomers are even in debate as to whether the Long Count is designed to be reset to after, or whether the calendar simply continues to (approximately 8000 AD) and then reset. As Karl Kruszelnicki brilliantly writes:

"…when a calendar comes to the end of a cycle, it just rolls over into the next cycle. In our Western society, every year 31 December is followed, not by the End of the World, but by 1 January. So in the Mayan calendar will be followed by - or good-ol' 22 December 2012, with only a few shopping days left to Christmas." - Excerpt from Dr Karl's "Great Moments in Science".

Make your own decision,.. you can watch more videos pavelsmutny40,...or movies,..but,..for example Emmerich''s movie 2012 could be better with appropriate scenario,… from people who devoted enough time, years to this problematics. This way, how it is made, so it is catastrophic movie with many effects but also with many misinfos. People would see it and will say that it is not again what probably happen. It is pity. End of era, how was described in last minutes of Return of the king/Lord of the rings so is better suitable, realistic for description of 2012 than this movie.

Proof for the existence of Nibiru and for Nibiru’s arrival to perihelion in 2012
1. Historical proofs
2. Geological proofs
3.Astronomical proofs

Historical proofs
Description of Noe’s flood-40days heavy rain,150days-water was high above the highest mountains, 150days water was receding, waters were rising and receding. -represents tidal effects of heavy body 5-20 Jupiter masses, with perihelia 100-400mil. km from us,…Nibiru circa 1 year close to perihelia, minim. distance from Earth.
Rests of Noe’s ark and stone anchor discovered on Ararat slopes in height circa 1800m.
How was that possible? Nibiru sucked waters from one hemisphere to second one, so particular time on north hemisphere was circa doubled total water amount, so such way even Caucasus,..was under water longer time,…
Asirian texts with Utnapisthim’s story are very similar to Noe’s one.
Chinese texts from stone on top of one mountain.There is description of flood in China,…till level of everlasting snow/till circa 2000m. Description of how to desalinate land after flood!
Maya’s codex’s, Lhasa’s codex,Hopi,…legends
Mentho’s, Plato’s story about flood, about the catastrophic end of Atlantis 9500 B.C./in accordance with GISP2, VOSTOk ice core probes research.

Senmut map-arrival of Planet X-star map from Senmut’s tomb, cca 1350 B. C., Narmer palette -depicted arrival of Nibiru approx.4300 B.C., other predynastic, 0.,1th dyn. paletten,.,Dendera zodiac, markiza Tai funeral banner 168 B.C.,texts from pyramids(Unas-Venis/5th dynasty),
Ancient oriental carpets,…many details about Nibiru’s orbit abut our Solar system, about advanced technologies of previous times. Carpet motives very precisely proportionally put into architecture of outdoor, of indoor of gothic cathedrals, orthodox churches, moslem’s mosques from that time.
Painting from stone near Fergana-Usbekistan, legends from that area,…time line similar to end of Atlantis.

Geological proofs

Results of GISP2 and VOSTOK projects, from ice probes from ice core, glacials from Greenland and from Antarctic. Dramatic 20deg. Celsia temperature changes 11500 and 13000 years Before Present. Mammoths, hairy rhinoceros,..and many other animals extinction, mammoths frozen on to -70 degrees with subtropical food in their stomachs, broken bones by wooden logs, big ice blocks. Temperature,…peaks with periodicity 1200-2000years, 100000year, 400000year long periods.
Periodicity of big earthquake waves approx. 1300-1700 years in Mediterranian area-coincidence with Nibiru period from Senmut map -second panel.
Significant changes in glaciation, ocean water level, till 100m, after beginning of global warming 9500 B.C.

Astronomical proofs
End of ½ of Precession cycle 25000-26000 years long. There was first catastrophic end of Atlantis, dramatic temperature change 13000years ago. Intersection of our galactic plane with plane of Earths axis.
2012-transit of Venus, Jupiter’s aphelia, maximum of Solar cycle.
All planetoids behind Pluto, Pluto, Neptune are close to perihelia or aphelia on their orbits. Why?
Opposite motion of Sun with inner planets toward arriving Nibiru causes projection, appearant changes, such shapes of that outdoor planets,’ planetoids’ orbits.
North magnetic pole accelerated motion in last decades,..toward North, toward plane in direction of Orion, of coming Nibiru.. Magnetic field is weaker so that in this change velocity it would disappear after 1500years. Last such full change was 730000years ago and this change had to be earlier than this time. There were 30 magnet. Poles switches per last 22 millions years.
Magnetic pole change about 30 degrees on Saturn in last years.
Global warming, extreme temperature changes on Earth, but also ice cap melting on Mars in last years, signif. temperature changes on other planets, their moons-Neptune’s Triton, doubled tickness of its atmosphere, rising temperature,…
Water level rise, but only on north hemisphere,…rising number of extreme floods, strong winds, hurricanes, tornadoes,earthquakes, temperature records,..due to rising level of tidal forces from coming Nibiru,…especially in time about 21 jun, 23december when earth axis is in plane pointing toward Orion, coming Nibiru, when Moon, Sun, some other planets like Venus, Mars, Jupiter are too circa in that direction.
Results from Milagro Los Alamos observatory 10 years long cosmic rays survay. Results are two hot spots next to Orion what are projections of coming Nibiru during spring and autumn equinoxes, represent also distance of Nibiru from us circa 1,5 billions km,…like Saturn from us, it means arrival of Nibiru to perihelia in 3 years, in 2012!More is on and over there mentioned webs.
nother reason why there should be Nibiru,..or more distant Nemesis. Values of axial,.. momentums for jovian,…planets are much higher,..comparable with axial momentum of Sun,….Position of comming Nibiru is quite clear,..people from Milagro know it but don’t want to speak,..why?
