What happened to the Maya? Was their civilization destroyed by Earthquakes and are Earthquakes connected to the 2012 Mayan Calendar, End of the World 2012 – Fin Del Mundo – Prophecy?

First lets clear the air on a few misconceptions floating around the web. The Maya did not die off as a people.the Maya believed that time was cyclical and not occuring in a straight line like we believe. Therefore they believed that time and history repeated itself in cycles and was therfore essentially predictable, at least in a broad sense.

So many people are alarmed by the fact that the current cycle of their lonmg Calendar is ending on December 21, 2012. The Mayan civilization was devastated by numerous earthquakes. The lived in southern Mexico, Guatemala, etc. The history of these areas include many devastating earthquake events.

Could deadly earthquakes have led to the decline of the Mayan Civilization? It is very possible. The fact is that no one knows what started their decline (We do know that the Spanish conq1uered the weekend Mayan Civilization over a hundred year span). Is that what will happen in 2012? Will we die in 2012 by Earthquakes???

The fact is that the first colonial capital in Guatemala, Ciudad Vieja, was destroyed by a major earthquake in 1542. They built a new capital on the same spot. It was called Antigua. That Capital city was destroyedtwo centuries later by -drum roll- by earthquakes in 1773.

In addition, we will discuss further devastating quakes and their affects on the decendents of the Maya in a little bit. But givben all of this incormation it is easy to see that if the Mayan Doomsday prophecy is true, then they might very well have forseen earthquakes as the end of the world (Remember the whole cyclical time belief of theirs. Who is to say that their concept of time is wrong and ours is right?).

End of the world 2012 – by earthquake?

2012 apocalypse - A Mayan Heiroglyphic believed to describe an earthquake

FACT: David Stuart of the Peabody Museum, Harvard has studied the hieroglyph above It is his belief that it depicts an earthquake in early Mayan times. The fact that it was found in a temple says a lot. You can read David’s paper at this link:

Earthquakes devistated the Mayans – Is that what will happen in 2012 to us?

December 21 2012 - is the Mayan Calendar warning us of Earthquakes?

FACT: As we already stated, the Mayans lived in an area that was hit by terrible earthquakes. If the Mayans did have the ability to predict the future, and if time was cyclical to them (or if it is cyclical) then ity is easy to see that they believed the apocalypse whould be caused by earthquakes! above is the map of quakes in the region from the United States Geological Service (USGS). In my opinion – Given the above, it would be easy to see how the Mayans might predict the end of the world, especially by Earthquake, on December 21 2012! It is easy to see that the Mayan 2012 end of the world prophecy was pointing towards earthquakes.

FACT: As we mentioned earlier, decendandts of the early Mayan were also plagued by earthquake disasters, In 1976 more than 20,000 people were killed in Guatemala’s capital when a major earthquake struck – half of those that died were most likely descendents of the original Mayans!. This quake was widespread, occurring along a fault line more then 200 kilometers in length! So for those people it certainly must have fealt like the end of the world. 200 Kilometers!! And now we ourselves appear to be in the midst of an unexplained rash of strong, devastating earthquakes. Could all the devastating earthquakes of the last 5 years be leading up to the end of the world 2012? The 2012 Mayan Prophecy?

FACT: Here is a list (with links) to major Guatemala earthquakes in the last 100 years:

* April 1902 Guatemala – M 7.5 Fatalities 2,000
* August 1942 – Guatemala – M 7.9 Fatalities 38
* February 1976 – Guatemala – M 7.5 Fatalities 23,000
* June 2007 – Offshore Guatemala – M 6.7

A full length film by Reality Films.

Is December 21, 2012 the end of the world as we know it?

Climate change seems inevitable with countless hurricanes, earthquakes and innumerable disasters around the globe in recent years. What did the ancient Maya know and why did they place such significance on this date?

As we near the final date of the Mayan Calendar, mankind must face what is perhaps the most difficult hurdle of all- a profound change in ourselves. This enigmatic film unveils the other side to the 2012 engima:

* The Underlying Mystery of 2012
* The True Nature of Time
* Current Evolution of the Human Mind

Geoff Stray and Philip Coppens take us on a journey into the Mayan mysteries to uncover a startling perspective on 2012, the lost meaning of the great cycle of the ages. They challenge the doomsday prophets and argue that 2012 is not the apocalyptic end of times, it is in fact only the beginning.

Time will never be the same again.

Reality Is What You Make It

The film also features Don Allejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, the Leader of the Mayan Council of Elders.

Of all the 2012 related documentaries/talks out there,this is the most profound of them all. This is the one to watch.

This 3 hour DVD is a presentation based on Dr. Calleman’s breakthrough discoveries of the structure of the Mayan Calendar as it relates to the Evolution of Consciousness.

“Lungold takes a complex subject such as the Mayan Calendar and makes it very easy to understand on a personal spiritual level.”

He explains that the Mayan Calendar contains the schedule of creation that can be overlaid with past historical events and most importantly can be used as a predictor of what to expect in the near future as we approach 2012. This presentation also includes questions from the audience.

A message from Ian:

To all my fellow passengers on planet earth, THANK YOU…I’m laying here thinking about whether I’m going to continue my life. I feel very relaxed, calm and as though I’ve accomplished a lot for a life time. I am feeling very sleepy I don’t know if I fall asleep if I will wake up again… so I want to get this said…

Actually, I don’t have a whole lot more to say other than, THANK YOU… and to let you know that if I do pass I’ll be joining with the legions of Light ~ Workers, who are to assist everyone else through these changes from the “Otherside.” Being as I’ve not been on the “Otherside” this time around, we will have to see how this works out. I will be attempting to stay in contact with Madaline, so that she can keep you up to date.

Whether this is the end of my life or not I have a request that each of you pick up what information I have brought concerning the Mayan calendar and with renewed vigor pass this information to as many people as possible.

It is my personal belief that we each have a sacred duty to find what works in the world in what ever arena we are familiar and then pass that information as straight as we can for the benefit of others. This is basically what I have done with Dr. Carl J. Calleman’s work and if I’m granted the time what I will continue to do for as long as I can from here too.

I have received a couple of questions regarding the 2012 countdown clock on this site.

Question: What timezone are you using?

Answer: I am using the timezone from Tikal, the ancient Mayan capital city.

Question: Why use Tikal?

Answer: The prophecy is Mayan and therefore will probably be based on the Mayan timezone and date. This countdown will run down on midnight, 21 December 2012, Mayan time.

Question: Why do some other sites have a different time to you?

Answer: They are probably not using Mayan time as their base, as a result their time will be out by several hours.

Question: What will happen when the clock runs down to zero?

Answer: I don’t know. That is what this site is all about. We look at different 2012 theories and leave it up to YOU to decide which you believe.
