4.2 – The Doomsday Prophecies (2.17.12)

“Both the man of science and the man of action live always at the edge of mystery, surrounded by it.”

– J. Robert Oppenheimer

The Maya created the most sophisticated calendar system in the ancient world, and according to many scholars their Long Count Calendar will come to an end on December 21, 2012. What does that mean for mankind? Some researchers believe it will usher in the return of Bolon Yokte – a mysterious god associated with creation and war. Could this god actually be an extraterrestrial, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? Other scholars believe the end of the calendar will bring about a series of catastrophic events that will threaten the very existence of mankind. They point to a rare galactic alignment that will coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar as proof of an impending geological catastrophe. If these Doomsday Prophecies prove to be true, will it mean the end of the world as we know it? Or could it reveal some profound truth about the origins of the human race? [3]

INTRODUCTION [3a]

Ancient calendars forecasting a deadly countdown…

“The Maya have this opinion that what’s happened in the past will happen again.”

Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D.
(Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Center)

…A galactic alignment, triggering a wave of natural disasters…

“It’s like having a whole bunch of massive earthquakes at the same time.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist / Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

…Could our planet really be headed for extinction?…

“These changes could be life-changing or they could be life-ending.”

Logan Hawkes (Publisher, The Mexico Less Traveled),
(Author/Producer, Ancient Mysteries of the Americas),
(Author, Close Encounters of the Old West),
(Ancient Aliens of the Americas)

…Or is there another agenda, one even more profound?…

“Each age for the Mayans was clearly defined. And it was defined by the gods returning.”

Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? Did Ancient Aliens really help to shape our history? And, if so, might evidence of alien contact help to unlock the mystery behind the Mayan prophecies of doom?
