|(Mayan ruins in Guatemala)|
- "Four long numbers on the north wall of the ruined house relate to the Maya calendar and computations about the moon, sun, and possibly Venus and Mars; the dates may stretch some 7,000 years into the future. These are the first calculations Maya archaeologists have found that seem to tabulate all of these cycles in this way. Although they involve common multiples of key calendar and astronomical cycles, the exact significance of these particular spans of time is not known." ~ USA Today, 5/10/2012
This just in...well, as of May of this year...new Mayan calendar information has been found in Guatemalan Mayan ruins. An archaeology student from Boston University found the paintings in ruins of a home, and archaeology professor, William Saturno, found the wall entries during the excavation of the site.Certain people are saying that Doomsday is imminent in the next six months. That the Maya say so, and that makes it true. No 'ifs', 'ands', or 'buts'.
Nothing is ever that cut and dry.
If the world were to end as the Dooms-dayists are saying, that would be letting the human race off too easy. The world is a mess right now. Here in the US, things are in the proverbial "crapper". To my mind, what happens in the next six months dictates how we enter the next 'age'. That's on a collective level. I think we can also dictate things on a more personal level, too. We each have the personal power to use in laying the brick work of our own paths. Life over all is many layered. It is up to humans on an individual and a group level to create the steps we make in moving forward. We can either move in a positive and enlightened way, or make the ride a lot rougher by allowing the negative to take deeper root.
Will the new evidence change any of the panicky minds out there? Maybe some. At the very least, it offers some food for thought.
