Just out of curiosity, does anyone here have much belief in the whole "12-12-2012" Mayan prophecy? Some people claim it to be a "doomsday" scenario, while others view it rather as a day of rebirth. The main reason I find it to be extremely interesting is that the Mayans....way back in their time, predicted a specific eclipse to occur on that day, and modern science tells us that we will indeed have an eclipse that day. With this particular type of eclipse, the poles (north and south) will switch places, potentially causing great natural disasters and catastrophes across the entire globe. Any thoughts on this?

If you mean that the earth will be flipped upside down, so that north pole is south and south pole north, then this would mean that the Sun is going to rise from the West.

 

We don't know about the exact dates, but if something is going to happen in the year 2012 then it might be the Armageddon which is the mother of wars or the war of wars.

 

1. According to a lecture the United Nations (Romans) and the Muslims will fight together against a common enemy. This war will last 4 days and will take place in Palestine. Both Sunnah and the Bible confirm this.

 

2. The Muslims will be victorious, but not the United Nations.

 

3. After the battle which could be nuclear in nature there will be a period of peace, but the United Nations will prepare for war against the Muslims, because of jealousy.

 

4. During the period three princes in Arabia will fight over a treasure that is buried under the Kaaba and in that time the Imam Mahdi will appear. He will flee from Madinah to Makkah and hide inside the Kaaba. A Muslim army will approach Makkah to fight Mahdi, but this army will be swallowed by the earth in the desert. Then another army with black flags will appear from the east and they will be the army of the Imam Mahdi.

 

5. When the Mahdi is there the Islamic Ummah will be united.

 

6. Then there will be a war after about nine months period of peace. This time it is a war between the Romans and the Muslims. The Romans are most probably the United Nations, because it is said that the Roman army will an army under 80 banners or standards and each banner will be about 12000 soldiers. This can only refer to the United Nations, because NATO does not have so many members etc. However, I am sure the The Romans are representing the West. The West does not necessarily mean Christian, because they may be Christian, Atheist, or other. The Europeans/Caucasians are referred as Romans, because in the time of Muhammad this part of the world was part of the Roman Empires. The Europeans are generally called Romans.

 

7. The war between Romans and Muslims will last 7 days, but Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, described this war as a very intense war without any break. Even a bird who flies over this battlefield will die, because of the severance.

 

8. One third of Muslims will run away, one third will die as martyr, and one third will be victorious.

 

9. The Muslims will be victorious, but the Muslims cannot rest because an emissary will come to the Mahdi and announce that the Antichrist came out and started corrupting the world. This will begin the war between the Muslims and the Antichrist.

 

10. The army of the Muslims will be cornered in Damascus and there is no escape. Then Jesus will descend from the Second Heaven leaning his arms on wings of angels. With the help of Jesus the Muslims will be victorious against the Antichrist.

 

11. There is an interesting information about the Antichrist. It is said that the Anitchrist, the False Messiah, will come out and he will travel around the globe in 40 days. However, the interesting part is the following:

 

 

a) The Antichrist will be the one who has the 666 or kafir written on his forehead which is usually referred as the number of the beast.

 

b) The Antichrist will not be the Beast, because the Beast will be a different figure who will come after Antichrists death, and this Beast will be a Servant of God Almighty. He will not be evil, but his task will be to stamp the people on their foreheads. The disbelievers will be brandmarked on their foreheads with the ring of Solomon and the believers will be marked with the Stick of Moses. This will happen after the time of Antichrist and Jesus.

 

c) The Antichrist will travel around earth in 40 days, BUT, the first day will be as long as a year and the second day will be as long as a month, and the third day will be as long as a weak, and the other days are like regular days.. There must be an unusually cosmological change for this to happen, maybe, the earth will be flipped upside down?

 

d) You need to know that after the appearance of the Antichrist the sun will rise from the West, not the east. The Sunrise from the West will be the ultimate sign of the Day of Judgement. When this happens every person on earth will become a believer, but this repentance will not be accepted.

The coming of the Antichrist and the Sunrise from the West may even occur parallel.

 

 

On the 12.12.2012, one of the above might happen if it happens in that year. However, we don't know the dates exactly, however, we know that the event above will occur and they will occur very soon, probably in our lifetime.

 

Be prepared and don't miss learning about Islam.

The prediction of the pole shifts is interesting.

 

Muslims believe in 10 Major signs:

 

1. The coming of the Antichrist

2. The descending of Jesus

3. The war with Gog and Magog

4. Three sinking of the earth. There will be earthquakes, so intense that parts of the earth will be swallowed. There will be sinking of earth in the West, the East, and on the Arabian Peninsula.

5. The Sunrise from the West

6. The Beast will appear.

7. A fire will appear from Yemen and follow the people. The people will run away. The fire will lead the to the land of Palestine.

8. A smoke will rise from Yemen which will kill all the believers. Everyone, who has at least an atom weight of faith will die. This death is a blessing.

 

The sinking of earth might be the result of the pole shift?

I find it to indeed be a scary topic for a few reasons...the big one being that the Mayan's prediction on the eclipse and pole shifting was so accurate all those years ago, without all the modern technology and science we possess today. On top of that, they cited that day as being a day of "rebirth." That can mean many different things, however one such thing that strikes my mind is a "cleansing" of the Earth as we know it. I think the weirdest thing though is simply not knowing...will the poles switch and nothing happen at all? Will they switch and cause major natural disasters? Will they not switch to begin with? Will it just be like any other day? Who truly knows until the day is upon us!

No Doomsday in 2012

 

Written by Ian O'Neill

 

Did the Mayans REALLY predict a doomsday event?

Apparently, the world is going to end on December 21st, 2012. Yes, you read correctly, in some way, shape or form, the Earth (or at least a large portion of humans on the planet) will cease to exist. Stop planning your careers, don’t bother buying a house, and be sure to spend the last years of your life doing something you always wanted to do but never had the time. Now you have the time, four years of time, to enjoy yourselves before… the end.

 

So what is all this crazy talk? We’ve all heard these doomsday predictions before, we’re still here, and the planet is still here, why is 2012 so important? Well, the Mayan calendar stops at the end of the year 2012, churning up all sorts of religious, scientific, astrological and historic reasons why this calendar foretells the end of life as we know it. The Mayan Prophecy is gaining strength and appears to be worrying people in all areas of society. Forget Nostradamus, forget the Y2K bug, forget the credit crunch, this event is predicted to be huge and many wholeheartedly believe this is going to happen for real. Planet X could even be making a comeback.

For all those 2012 Mayan Prophecy believers out there, I have bad news. There is going to be no doomsday event in 2012, and here’s why…

 

The extent of the Mayan empire

 

The Mayan Calendar

So what is the Mayan Calendar? The calendar was constructed by an advanced civilization called the Mayans around 250-900 AD. Evidence for the Maya empire stretches around most parts of the southern states of Mexico and reaches down to the current geological locations of Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador and some of Honduras. The people living in Mayan society exhibited very advanced written skills and had an amazing ability when constructing cities and urban planning. The Mayans are probably most famous for their pyramids and other intricate and grand buildings. The people of Maya had a huge impact on Central American culture, not just within their civilization, but with other indigenous populations in the region. Significant numbers of Mayans still live today, continuing their age-old traditions.

 

The Mayans used many different calendars and viewed time as a meshing of spiritual cycles. While the calendars had practical uses, such as social, agricultural, commercial and administrative tasks, there was a very heavy religious element. Each day had a patron spirit, signifying that each day had specific use. This contrasts greatly with our modern Gregorian calendar which primarily sets the administrative, social and economic dates.

Most of the Mayan calendars were short. The Tzolk’in calendar lasted for 260 days and the Haab’ approximated the solar year of 365 days. The Mayans then combined both the Tzolk’in and the Haab’ to form the “Calendar Roundâ€, a cycle lasting 52 Haab’s (around 52 years, or the approximate length of a generation). Within the Calendar Round were the trecena (13 day cycle) and the veintena (20 day cycle). Obviously, this system would only be of use when considering the 18,980 unique days over the course of 52 years. In addition to these systems, the Mayans also had the “Venus Cycleâ€. Being keen and highly accurate astronomers they formed a calendar based on the location of Venus in the night sky. It’s also possible they did the same with the other planets in the Solar System.

 

Using the Calendar Round is great if you simply wanted to remember the date of your birthday or significant religious periods, but what about recording history? There was no way to record a date older than 52 years.

 

The end of the Long Count = the end of the Earth?

The Mayans had a solution. Using an innovative method, they were able to expand on the 52 year Calendar Round. Up to this point, the Mayan Calendar may have sounded a little archaic - after all, it was possibly based on religious belief, the menstrual cycle, mathematical calculations using the numbers 13 and 20 as the base units and a heavy mix of astrological myth. The only principal correlation with the modern calendar is the Haab’ that recognised there were 365 days in one solar year (it’s not clear whether the Mayans accounted for leap years). The answer to a longer calendar could be found in the “Long Countâ€, a calendar lasting 5126 years.

 

I’m personally very impressed with this dating system. For starters, it is numerically predictable and it can accurately pinpoint historical dates. However, it depends on a base unit of 20 (where modern calendars use a base unit of 10). So how does this work?

 

The base year for the Mayan Long Count starts at “0.0.0.0.0″. Each zero goes from 0-19 and each represent a tally of Mayan days. So, for example, the first day in the Long Count is denoted as 0.0.0.0.1. On the 19th day we’ll have 0.0.0.0.19, on the 20th day it goes up one level and we’ll have 0.0.0.1.0. This count continues until 0.0.1.0.0 (about one year), 0.1.0.0.0 (about 20 years) and 1.0.0.0.0 (about 400 years). Therefore, if I pick an arbitrary date of 2.10.12.7.1, this represents the Mayan date of approximately 1012 years, 7 months and 1 day.

 

This is all very interesting, but what has this got to do with the end of the world? The Mayan Prophecy is wholly based on the assumption that something bad is going to happen when the Mayan Long Count calendar runs out. Experts are divided as to when the Long Count ends, but as the Maya used the numbers of 13 and 20 at the root of their numerical systems, the last day could occur on 13.0.0.0.0. When does this happen? Well, 13.0.0.0.0 represents 5126 years and the Long Count started on 0.0.0.0.0, which corresponds to the modern date of August 11th 3114 BC. Have you seen the problem yet? The Mayan Long Count ends 5126 years later on December 21st, 2012.

 

Doomsday

When something ends (even something as innocent as an ancient calendar), people seem to think up the most extreme possibilities for the end of civilization as we know it. A brief scan of the internet will pull up the most popular to some very weird ways that we will, with little logical thought, be wiped off the face of the planet. Archaeologists and mythologists on the other hand believe that the Mayans predicted an age of enlightenment when 13.0.0.0.0 comes around; there isn’t actually much evidence to suggest doomsday will strike. If anything, the Mayans predict a religious miracle, not anything sinister.

 

Myths are abound and seem to be fuelling movie storylines. It looks like the new Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is even based around the Mayan myth that 13 crystal skulls can save humanity from certain doom. This myth says that if the 13 ancient skulls are not brought together at the right time, the Earth will be knocked off its axis. This might be a great plotline for blockbuster movies, but it also highlights the hype that can be stirred, lighting up religious, scientific and not-so-scientific ideas that the world is doomed.

 

Could an asteroid wipe out the Earth? (NASA)

 

Some of the most popular space-based threats to the Earth and mankind focus on Planet X wiping most life off the planet, meteorite impacts, black holes, killer solar flares, Gamma Ray Bursts from star systems, a rapid ice age and a polar (magnetic) shift. There is so much evidence against these things happening in 2012, it’s shocking just how much of a following they have generated. Each of the above “threats†needs their own devoted article as to why there is no hard evidence to support the hype.

 

But the fact remains, the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy is purely based on a calendar which we believe hasn’t been designed to calculate dates beyond 2012. Mayan archaeo-astronomers are even in debate as to whether the Long Count is designed to be reset to 0.0.0.0.0 after 13.0.0.0.0, or whether the calendar simply continues to 20.0.0.0.0 (approximately 8000 AD) and then reset. As Karl Kruszelnicki brilliantly writes:

 

“…when a calendar comes to the end of a cycle, it just rolls over into the next cycle. In our Western society, every year 31 December is followed, not by the End of the World, but by 1 January. So 13.0.0.0.0 in the Mayan calendar will be followed by 0.0.0.0.1 - or good-ol’ 22 December 2012, with only a few shopping days left to Christmas.†- Excerpt from Dr Karl’s “Great Moments in Science“.
