Mayan's Doomsday Prophecy ...... Friday, Dec 21, 2012

Its been a week of break for me to pen down ..... Was running short on a piece ..... But interestingly came across Mayans calendar predicting 2012 apocalypse !!!

People are easily charmed and lead but I also think part of this 2012 appeal is the mystery......... We find it interesting that a culture was able to create a very accurate calendar that for some reason ends on a date most of us will live to see......

It's like Y2K, many were curious and talked about the date being 'end of times' but how many actually took steps to prepare for disaster ?? ........ There's a line between active discussion and active belief - people enjoy reading about these sorts of things, doesn't mean they deep down believe it to be true...........We enjoy our fiction, we enjoy a bit of danger - that's the bulk of it ..........

Then again I could be completely wrong. After all I’m only human ............

These 'end of world' stories have been doing the round for years now. I think even last year one earthquake was SUPPOSED to wipe out all human life! But as you can see, we all are still very much alive...

This is a popular misconception which the doomsday theoriests like to believe in, with good reason as the Mayan calendar (& later the Aztec borrowed from them) was quite perfect, so much as to not require the use of a leap year! But the reality is much more simpler, the mentioned date is just the end of the Mayan/ Aztec cycle, quite analogus to our concept of the four Yugas. The end of one cycle will be the start of another... :). May our tribe increase till eternity... :).

there's plenty of time for 2012, and i hope the global recession ends before that...it would be sad if everything finishes off during an economic slowdown !

oh these things are fun u know....

i really enjoy reading them...quite frankly, as u say, none of us actually believe it. But we humans love to amuse ourselves with just about anything. Especially with things that are beyond us and our understanding...

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
