The World Will End on 21 Dec 2012...

I was skeptical when I first heard about the news of the world ending on December 21 2012 but with the recent out of control weather changes, I'm slowly admitting to the fact. You know deep down I want to believe but I'm telling myself until I see it happening, that is if we make it through. People were alerted about this fact after coming across the Mayan calendar which suddenly stops ends on 21st December 2012.

I know many people who leave out of the americans and the non-historians are wondering who are the Mayans? The Maya is a Mesoamerican civilization, noted for the only known fully developed written language of the pre-Columbian Americas, as well as its art, architecture, and mathematical and astronomical systems. Initially established during the Pre-Classic period (c. 2000 BC to 250 AD), according to the Mesoamerican chronology, many Maya cities reached their highest state development during the Classic period (c. 250 AD to 900 AD), and continued throughout the Post-Classic period until the arrival of the
Spaniards from Europe. At its peak, it was one of the most densely populated and culturally dynamic societies in the world. In short the Maya are one of the indigenous people of the Americas.

The Mayan calendar acted as a harmonic calibrator, linking and coordinating the earthly, lunar, solar and galactic seasons in an aesthetically simple and elegant manner. According to the calendar, on this day an incredible event will take place up in the sky, the sun will move and stop at a certain point in the sky, and stay standstill for a while. This will cause a chain of reactions that will affect the earth, eventually us. The calendar does not explained what will happen afterward because when the Spaniards conquerors came over they destroyed everything that the Mayans had written as well as killing them, few of the things that survived including the calendar itself have the explanation.

The Maya were very good in astrology and they were able to predict many things including every solar and lunar eclipse until 2012 that have all actually happened until today. That is why even the most skeptics are challenged.

The Maya people still exist until today, few of course, but most of the knowledge of their ancestors was never passed on when the Spaniards invaded them.

Some scientists and explorers are saying that it is not actually the end of the world but is the the beginning of a new world, end of an old cycle and beginning of a new one. But some are also saying that during this process some civilizations will be wiped out just like the way the dinosaurs were destroyed.

So there is no doubt something will happen - a change, I don't believe it will be the end of the world maybe it will be the end of our life in this world and another civilization will begin, or maybe something will happen that will change the way we live forever.

Do you believe the world will end in December 2012?
