I have heard several different interpretations of the Mayan prophecies regarding *December 2012.
* Gregorian calendar.
As you probably know, the Mayan Calendar has been credited with predicting everything from the dawning of an age of enlightenment for humanity to complete and utter destruction of the world a we know it today.
Some have said the Mayan's were predicting a solar X class flares similar to the solar super storms of 1859 that overloaded telegraph lines.
I can not think of a more appropriate venue to collect your thoughts, the thoughts of over landers everywhere on planet earth....as you become aware of the differences and similarities of 2012 to other years you have lived or learned about.
Your prophecies welcome too...and any report of events that can be attributed to any Mayan Prophecy are especially welcome.
I will reserve my judgement until reports from all continents begin to flow in, and as they do I will look for common threads among the reports that might indicate a worldwide event or events.
There was a news item a few weeks ago in the UK about this issue; the end of the world forecast for some day in Dec 12. They inferred that the document(s) are interpreted in this way because "pages" are missing, hence it ends in Dec this year.
My first motorcycle ride through Yucatan, Mexico was 1968 after the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. I was on my way to the States after working 2 years in Costa Rica.
I spoke with many,many Mayans. Including a Mayan princess who still sang in the native Mayan language. My first hand account of what the Mayans actually said about the future was very much in line with this video.
Since 1968 I lived and worked in Mexico for 3 years and each Mayan I met, and there were many, said more or less the same thing.
Why some people have attributed destruction as opposed to enlightenment to the Mayan Prophecy, I do not know, I would like to hear more from you, before deciding what I believe about the Mayans and 2012.
Realmc26, I only post this as a sincere attempt to help you and others who spend far too much time barefoot in locker room showers.
Athletes Foot might indeed be considered "an auspicious incident indicating armageddon" if the flow of blood to the measurably highest part of the anatomy, when the specimen is upright, is as restricted of blood flow as the lowest parts of the anatomy so that the lowest parts of the anatomy, due to lack of oxygen carried in the blood, succumb to the aforementioned disease of Athletes Foot, or Athletes Feet as the case may be.
Simple remedies are: wear looser socks, and/or looser fitting shoes or just remove your foot from your mouth.
My calendar ran out 2011. Think I will get a new one.
From what I have been told the Mayans works the same way. When it reaches the end they gust restart. But think some other tribes are looking for the star brothers to return. Or the big space snakes will come back.
But as fare as end the word we really do not outside help.
