Something that has been in the news lately is the end of the Mayan Long Calendar on December 21, 2012, and its impending message for the future of human civilization. Many people who have studied Mayan culture and the calendar note that the end of the cycle that occurs on the winter solstice of 2012 would have been an extremely significant date for the Mayan people. Another indicator that this date is an important one is the fact that it is the end of thirteenth baktun (cycle), and the number thirteen had great spiritual significance to the Mayans, which means that to them this date and the end of the baktun which it represents is no mere coincidence.
This significance about the date December 21, 2012, has caused many to speculate about the end of the world that the Mayan culture may have believed was looming ahead of them. For instance, the fact that this culture was one that was very large in astronomy and the solar system has caused many people to believe that the end of the cycle will coincide with the appearance of a phenomenon in our solar system.
When archeologists uncovered the ancient writings and tombs of the Sumerians they found the appearance of a mysterious Planet X (or Nibiru) in their mythology. This planet was one whose orbit only intersected with our solar system once every three thousand six hundred years. According the Sumerian’s belief system, the celestial beings that inhabited this planet were known the Anunnaki. In fact, this same system of mythology also claims that the Anunnaki were the ones that genetically engineered the first human beings as a way to mine the gold ore from Africa.
The relevance of Nibiru and the Anunnaki is that the return of their planet is scheduled to occur at the same time as the end of the Mayanh calendar. This has caused many to believe that the planetary orbits of Earth, Neptune, and Jupiter could be disrupted by sudden integration of this unfamiliar celestial body. If this were to happen it could have serious consequences for the inhabitants of Earth as our orbit is the one thing that helps keep us in the harmonious balance that has worked to create and sustain life on this planet. Most people do not realize that if we were just a little farther away from the sun our environment might cool off so much that it might not be as easy to support life. On the other hand, if we were closer, then the heat of the sun would destroy our o-zone layer in a short period of time, leaving the Earth’s inhabitants without its necessary protection.
Even if this mysterious Planet X does not reappear, there are still other indicators that the Mayan calendar date of December 21, 2012, has more significance than one might think. For example, this is the date of a very rare galactic alignment of the planets in the Milky Way, and it is something that only occurs once every twenty five thousand years. Some scientists believe that this alignment might cause a problematic shift in the magnetic poles. While this may not sound like much to someone who doesn’t understand the science, the truth is that the effects of a polar shift could be catastrophic. The environments around the world that people are familiar with would change suddenly, and they would be left to navigate their way through a world that was suddenly completely foreign and unfamiliar to them. Not to mention the fact that this shift could also usher in a new ice age. It is not something of science fiction. A polar shift has occurred in the past, and could easily happen again in the future.
