2012 Doomsday Clock
If you are reading this you are living in one of the most interesting times. From the Mayan perspective and from many other perspectives: These are the End Times. This is the time of prophecy about a 2012 Doomsday. Just about everybody has heard of the date 2012 and read about 2012 doomsday predictions. Most people hear about Dec 21, 2012 and say, “Hmm, isn’t that when the Mayan calendar ends? Isn't that 2012 Doomsday date? Accoding to some scholars the Mayan calendar doesn’t end in 2012. The Mayan calendar is based on cycles within cycles within cycles. What happens in 2012 is the ending of a major cycle. For the Maya 2012 is the ending of what is known as the Great Cycle. The GreatCycle is a 5,125 year cycle that began at the date 126.96.36.199.0 on the Mayan calendar. Modern day media has tagged this date as "2012 Doomsday" The present Kali Yuga cycle of the Hindus began just 11 years later in 3102 B.C., this is supposedly when Lord Krishna disincarnated and then the Kali Yuga began. Kali Yuga is the final and darkest age. For the Maya, history did begin at 3113 B.C. The first dynasty of Egypt was established circa 3100 B.C. The first city in history was founded circa 3100 B.C. That was the city of Uruk, from which the name Iraq is derived. Uruk was founded by seven wise men at the beginning of history in Mesopotamia. If you look at the history books you will see that virtually everything we think of as the history of civilization began at that point and slowly builds up from there—this is the Babylonian/Mesopotamian origin of civilization. Mayans say that this whole cycle of civilization 5,125 years comes to an end on the Winter Solstice December 21, 2012 A.D.

What most intrigues scholars is not the beginning dates of the Mayan calendar, but the projected end of all cycles date, known to us as December 21, 2012. The Mayan's studied the stars and developed an extremely advanced calendar. A calendar that most would agree is more precise than our own. Many predictions have been deciphered from the Mayan calendar. One of the more well known and controversial prophecies is that December 21, 2012 marks the end of the world, doomsday. The Mayan doomsday prediction coincides with a winter solstice that, when predicted, was to occur over 2,300 years later.Reconciling the Mayan long-count calendar with the Gregorian calendar has puzzled and intrigued researchers for years decades. The Mayans measured time in cycles related to astronomical phenomenon. They had both a short-count calendar and a long count calendar, based on mathematical equations and their observations of the constellations and other astronomical phenomena. Some Mayan experts believe the Mayan calendar was based on precessions. Precessions are observations of the equinoxes as the earth wobbles, changing the precess of the earth's poles in relation to known constellations. In simpler terms, precession is the identification of a change, over time, in the constellations which provide a backdrop for the earth's poles. Today this is known as The Platonic Calendar. Egyptians, Babylonians, and Greeks also observed precession, but it wasn't until recently that scholars began to unravel the Mayan understanding of precession. As scholars continue to exam Mayan calendars and astronomical observations many now agree that Mayan knowledge of precession seems evident. It has also become evident that the Mayans associated their observations with their belief system. Careful study of Mayan Mythology confirms the Milky Way as an essential part of their mythology and belief system. The position of the Milky Way was believed to be the integral opening from the heavens through with their god-king arrived on earth.
