Countdown Maya – The Maya Doomsday Clock for December 21, 2012, begins it’s countdown for the ‘Year of Doom’ and the end of the world as we know it. Yes, the sky is falling, but the people in the territory are planning a year-long celebration.
NASA has even jumped into the prophecy debate and stated that there will be stronger solar winds from the sun this year.
With only one calendar year left to what some have said is the end, according to the Doomsday Clock.
It all started when a 1,300-year-old stone tablet was found. According to the stone, the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012, and some archeologists believe that it was the Mayans predicting the end of the world.
But most familiar with the Mayan couture say it is just the end of one cycle and their will be a renewal of a new one. The Mayan calendar has 20 cycles and this is just the thirteenth. However, in Mexico where they average about 22 million tourists yearly, they are expecting 52 million this year because of the lure of it all.
However, most Mayans today believe that the only thing that comes to an end, is the calendar itself, not the world. There are different interpretations on what the message really says on the ancient stone. And, it’s really up to each individual to decide on their own belief on what really happens, since the ancient Mayans aren’t here today to inform us.
People in the region are taking it seriously because the town of Tapachula, located on the Guatemalan border, will begin a countdown on large 8-foot digital clock display exactly one year before the predicted date. And at the nearby archaeological site of Izapa, Maya priests will burn incense, chant and pray.
The Maya ‘Doomsday Clock’ has several interpretations, but there is only one December 21, 2012, which is spelled out correctly. If we’re still here after that date, then there’s something wrong with the countdown.
