When it comes to sheer bunkum, snake-oil-caliber nonsense, it is hard to surpass the Mayan Calendar Prophecy. Let’s be honest with one another: it isn’t a prophecy. It’s more like a Rorschach ink-blot test wherein everyone gets to develop their 2012 fantasy and share it with the world.
Think about it. First, the year 2012 was to mark the end of the world, because the Mayan calendar only went out as far as the year 2012. Then someone else comes along and says, “No. What will really occur is the world will be magically transformed by the dawning of some sort of Age of Aquarius, or superconsciousness, or…whatever.” The fact that the calendar is producing so many different flavors of “prophecy” is proof that there is no prophecy. Let’s call it the 2012 Free-For-All, or the 2012 Guess-a-thon, but not the 2012 Prophecy. That gives prophecy a bad name.
That said, I would like to offer my own update to the 2012 forecast for humanitarian reasons. I have a Planetsafe calendar hanging on my wall that ends in 2014. Based on the faultless logic that inspired the 2012 prophecy, I must conclude that we’ve still got a few years left. So, Mayan Prophecy proponents, I am here to announce a two year reprieve. Relax, stop building your bunker, no need to head for the hills, at least not until 2014.Blog post by Tom Payne // Please visit www.thetemplateoftime.com to see how a pattern in history has been discovered that generates accurate forecasts of future historical events.
