The Mayan’s are most renown in doomsday prophecy discussions for the Mayan calendar, which many believe predict the end of time in the year 2012. Some have said, “It’s the end of the world.” Others said, “It’s the end of the world as we know it.”
What is the significance of December 21, 2010? We are in a 5,125-year-long cycle linked to an astronomical event that occurred in the year 3114 B.C., which ends on December 21, the Winter Solstice, December 21, 2012 A.D.
What will happen on December 21, 2010? Our sun will move into an alignment with the equator of the Milky Way. In plain English, the center of our Milky Way galaxy is a very powerful source of magnetic energy. Where we are, in relation to that energy source, has a huge effect on planet Earth. Sometimes we’re further and tilted away and impacted less by it. Sometimes we’re closer or tilted toward it, and the effect is greater. On December 21, 2012, we have a direct path to that source of energy, unobstructed by any other planets or any other bodies in the solar system.
How will that energy source impact planet Earth? According to geological studies, this is something that has happened in the past and will continue in the future. What is relevant is that during these times in history the magnetic fields of the Earth became weaker. The energy from the sun was stronger so that the ice on the poles began to melt. The oceans began to rise, the climate began to shift, and the weather patterns began to change.
In many ways, we are already experiencing the great changes that so many have predicted. We have seen earthquakes of great magnitude and tsunamis wiping out cities from shallow coastlines, forest fires, millions of people dying from disasters and diseases and global warming.
Were the Mayan’s able to predict the future? Were they visited by aliens and given this knowledge? Perhaps! But what they knew for certain is our history and cycles of time. Did they intend to warn us or did they simply run out of room on their calendar? After all, they had to end their calendar somewhere and sometime. Maybe December 21, 2012, for the Mayans, was a good stopping point!
