throughout time since there was religion, there has always been an end of the world, and its always coming soon. the mayans were correct about lot of things, and i wouldnt be surprised if they were right about this, although i dont really care, wxcept i got alot more drugs to do in the next 10 years, hehe.

I don't really believe the Mayans could have cared less about what happens to the USA. All civilizations are concerned primarily about their own survival, and the Mayans experienced their end-of-world scenario hundreds of years ago.

So much for that prediction.

Who said anything about the USA? The mayans predicted the end of time in 2012..
Don't you think they would care about the end of time?

Wasn't it you who told me to read between the lines a little bit -and here you are pretending that you did not understand the intent of my post, so I will restate in a more verbose way so that we can waste bandwidth.

No one said anything about the USA. However, most posters here are from the USA and are enormously concerned about their ultimate survival.

Why would the Mayans possibly care about some event many hundreds of years after their civilization was wiped out? Their personal end of time happened long ago, which they most certainly did not predict.

The end of time is a cosmic event, the end of their civilization is a political one. They would have a great deal easier time predicting the former than understanding the genocidal motivations an overseas civilization who they hadn't even heard of at the time.

I like McKenna?s theory, but I am not sure if will happen on 2012, perhaps something big will happen but not the end of time, well I hope so things are finally shaping out good for me in my life : ).
In the mean time lets party just in case it does happen!
Will know soon enough

Assuming there is such thing as prophecy ( I have seen no solid examples) what makes it easier to prophecy one event over another and what logic have you used to make such a determination?

First of all, the Mayans did not even predict the "end of time" (whatever that means), it is just that their calendar ended in 2012. That is a 20th century interpretation by some fringe theorists.

Archaeologists claim that the Maya began counting time as of August 31, 3114 B.C. This is called the zero year and is likened to January 1, AD. All dates in the Long Count begin there, so the date of the beginning of this time cycle is written 13-0-0-0-0. That means 13 cycles of 400 years will have passed before the next cycle begins, which is December 27, 2012.

A new calendar cycle does not mean the end of time. My last year's calendar ended on December 31st, 2001 and we are stiil here.

For me to put any credence in these stories would take two things:

1. The Mayans had a history of accurate predicitions - they did not- and

2. They predicted the end of the time - they did not.

it isn't completely agreed that time will end at this date. some feel that the date marks the beginning of true existence( whatever that means). i just find it odd that mckenna was able to derive the same date from the i-ching.

The end of time is perhaps not the most appropriate description. December 21st, 2012 marks the beginning of the 5th density, and therefore a calender is no longer needed because time will not effect us in the same way.
If you ask me the calender should go by the Moon's phases as well as the Sun's and holidays should be during planetary alignments, eclipses, and meteor showers and the like.

And you think that McKenna was unaware of the Mayan calendar? He used his timewave to "fit" many events in history.

dunno if anyone find this useful, but this site gives a nice explenation (for me at least) of the "end" date of the mayan calender. http://www.crawford2000.co.uk/maya.htm

Also, I find it to be a good explenation that our real life will begin after that date, or rather say, continue. I have the feeling lately that I am returning to something, to myself.
What we now experience, is just an extracted moment.
The state in which we'll be in, is what we now experience as the whole timeloop, all of your experience in lifetimes, is being put into one moment.

Based on the Mayan's knowledge of astronomy, they created 2 calenders. I read somewhere that talked about sunspots and their effect on the Earth, and our calenders and astronomical findings have matched their astronomical calenders and charts, which leads me to believe that they could have very well predicted many things based on the stars. I read somewhere about a pole shift due to the increase in sun spots, fucking with the magnetism of Earth and shit.

BTW, Time doesn't mean SHIT to me, as on a 1/4 of shrooms I had some strange revelations, those of which I can't remember by words, but by undescribable feelings of the uselessness of TIME... such as hours, minutes, seconds.... all for the feeling of protection and measurement. Einstein PROVED that time is relative, and the calender of the Mayans was based on astronomy, not time. The Mayan's didn't predict the end of the world in 2012, their calender restarts at the period we designated 2012.

I never heard of any theories on the end of the world. Two years ago I had a dream, you could say, that the year 2013, the earth will become one, where in which Sleep and Day will come together, thus ending dreams. If this means the world will end, it only means that in this reality, maybe we will cross over, as a whole planet into some reality where it is different. Life never ends, Just memory. I don't know why I dreamt that, but I have come to trust my dreams, one time I had a dream that a forest told me it was second generation. What second generation means I had no idea. But the forest I think was second generation. So then I trust both dreams. What do you think of the end of memory for the year 2013, not 2012 i am definite on the year

this post is intended for SWAMI!
question: Why do you even waste your time arguing in this forum? You should find a board with a bunch of people with similar beliefs to yours. That is what we are all doing here. We have found that we can share theory, and possibly teach each other a thing or two about the way we chose to live life. You will never change any of our minds with your persistant nay saying. We have all chosen to look beyond the terms, rules, and regulations of man made science, and my guess is that we are all past the point of no return as far as that goes. I am sure that you will pick this apart, and challenge my sentences. Just know this, I will not respond because I have said to you all that I need to say. Thank you for your time.

Dear LOVE EVERYTHINHG(sp): In what way does your post contribute to the discussion?

question: Why do you even waste your time arguing in this forum?
I am touched by your concern for how I expend my energy. Unlike your judicious use of time in making this zero content post...

You should find a board with a bunch of people with similar beliefs to yours.That is what we are all doing here.
*Shows extreme astonishment* Are you truly saying the everyone here is in perfect agreement on every subject? Do you believe that dolphins are aliens from Sirius who forgot where they parked the ship? (Aisle 3B, no, no its in aisle 4C...)

While using man-made science (note redundancy as that is the only science there is) such as computers, networks and electricity to slam said science.

Just know this, I will not respond because I have said to you all that I need to say.
I will sleep easier tonight knowing that.
