Well…here we are. 12-21-2012. A date that erroneously predicted as the end of the world… Armageddon, in fact. One professor, Gerardo Aldana, an associate professor at the University of California Santa Barbara who has been studying the Mayan calendar since 1995 had this to say:
Aldana argues the misinterpretation dates back to the 1960s when archeologist Mike D. Cole published “The Maya.” There he suggested the Mayan calendar would end in 2011 or 2012, hinting, in jest, that it meant the end of the world. Scholars have since said there’s no evidence the calendar predicts an apocalyptic future.” Read more here.
In fact, the predominant belief for most who follow the Mayan Calendar is that it is the end of one era and the beginning of a new one. Many even go further and express that it is an exciting time, a new period of optimism and positive opportunity for we humans.
But don’t tell that to the doomsdayers….you will wreck yet another deadline of carnage and End of the World anticipation. These people spend their lives wrapped up in wanting to get out of here that they never really live. It is actually quite sad.
This is the dark thinking and gullibility of far too many who become obedient Sheople and follow orders here in America and abroad. They drink in the rhetoric fed to them by charlatans, snakeoil salesmen and women, false prophets and greedy self-interest entities. It is a serious game of feeding relentless fear and paranoia.
I don’t know about you, but there is no way that an end of the world prediction is going to deprive me of watching my 2 year-old granddaughter open her new drum on Christmas morning – in front of two parental units who may want to strangle me. No sirree! I for one, am going to wake up tomorrow appreciating every day I have in this life and look forward to many more and I am also going to be thankful that the days will now begin getting longer.
I wish the same for all of you and wish you the Happiest of Holidays!
