New Mayan Calendar Discovered That Doesn't End in 2012

Archeologists have unearthed what they say is the oldest known version of the Mayan calendar and one that doesn't "end" with the Earth's destruction later this year. Yeah, you're welcome.

According to The Washington Post's Brian Vastag, researchers excavating the "lost" city of Xultún in present-day Guatemala discovered new astronomical tables carved into the wall of a "1200-year-old residential building." Much like the Maya codices that conspiracy theorists say predict an end-of-the-world date in December 2012, the tables chart planetary movements, moon and star patterns, and can predict the positions of celestial bodies thousands of years into the past and the future.

” the wall of a “1200-year-old residential building.” “

the inscription across the top says - “First National Bank of Xultún”

Oh great, because uh, obviously they had all the answers. Ya know, because they’re so CULTURAL and EARTHY and like they just FEEL so SPIRITUAL woooooo.....

So now we’re all safe, because the EARTHY SPIRITUAL MAYAN SHAMAN says so, woooo...

Because we all believe that so much more than the actual Bible with REAL prophecies that have been PROVEN true.

After obama’s laws start kicking in in 2013 it may not be the end of the world but it WILL be the end of America. I have a feeling there will be some who will cry out for the mountains to fall on them.

...Tulane University’s Marc Zender, who led the expedition, says that the Mayan calendar still begins a new “long cycle” in 2012, but compares he compares to an "odometer on a car rolling over from 99,999 miles to zero...

Nothing ever said the Mayan calender ever indicated anything other than a "rolling over."

After all, it's a wheel.

On the other hand, a second hand clicks off a minute hand when it finishes a cycle, and a minute hand clicks off an hour hand when it finishes a cycle. Likewise, the Mayans say that when this calendar finishes its cycle on December 21, 2012 (winter solstice), if finishes the "Fourth Sun" and initiates the "Fifth Sun."

What does that mean?

"Something wonderful."

How do you "max out" free money? That dude Visa pays for everything. I even have these four winning numbers that when I stick the card in the lotto machine at the bank and play those numbers.....yup, you guessed it; winner every time.

The irony of the timing of this is unbelievable. Those who thought the world would end THIS YEAR in 6 months suddenly have a new calendar that says NOT YET.
The correction is found in the year we were all freaked out.

“...can predict the positions of celestial bodies thousands of years into the past”

I can predict my past with 100% accuracy, too. Except for those times I was stupefyingly drunk as a college kid. Or perhaps for those early moments of rapture when the earth moved for me, too.

What is ending according to their calendar system, is a “sun” or an age. We’re leaving the fourth sun and entering the fifth. It’s a new creation under the Mayan cosmology ormythology, take your pick.

A “sun” is a complete transit of the zodiac, thousands of years. The first sun began with the “birth” of the planet Venus, or so the story goes. “Suns” die violently. The last was purported ushered in with a great, cataclysmic flood. This one, movement, darkness and cold, although just what that could mean is not settled at all, even among those who follow the belief.

Me, I only look at the advanced astronomy of which they appear to have been capable, and have some curiosity or concern that there may be some astronomical reason, something cyclical on a very long orbit, that could be the basis for this. The whole thing is so thoroughly tinfoil by now, that it’s pretty well impossible to get objective information sans hype.

If there’s anything at all to it, the sky’s going to get increasingly active. I sincerely doubt a world changing event is associated with this, but it gives me enough pause to look.

In the Mayan calendar, there are no Leap Years or Leap Days, so their 2012 ended a number of years ago.
