2012: The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius…or the Rapture???

Mayan calendar predicts that on December 21, 2012 that the world will…? No, it does not mean that the world will come to an end; nor does it tie into biblical scripture (rather, non-scripture) of the supposed Rapture event. I know this is a hot-trigger topic; but people, we need to get a grip on reality. The originator of the doomsday scenario was implanted by 70-year old Jose Arguelles, the founder of the Planet Art Network and the Foundation for the Law of Time. While he bases his prediction on the Mayan calendar, the studies of Arguelles are totally unsupported by any Mayan scholar. ancient-maya-ruin

Unfortunately, doomsayers including radical religious zealots in North America are facilitating ideological beliefs and opinions of one man (Arguelles) to create an environment of Zionist fear. According to Sandra Noble, MA, PhD of the University of British Columbia, who is the executive director of FAMSI (Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies, Inc.), the Mayan calendar doomsday scenario “is a complete fabrication.” In fact, the claims of Arguelles are much further from religious beliefs than realized — so much so, that his opinions are taunted as “New Age,” or “Pop Culture.”

Have we all been duped?

Throughout the ages, prophets and not-so-prophetic prophets have made “predictions” about the future. Literature from Nostradamus is often referred to in hindsight. As the old adage goes, hindsight is always 20/20. Even history’s philosophers like Socrates could’ve been reeled in by theories like that of Arguelles because in an ideological sense, the story was planted based on ancient writings — that, however, does not mean that the planted story held any virtue in relation to actual writings.

In essence, we haven’t been duped; but we have been “reeled in” by a good story…a phenomenal story about doomsday — based on the Mayan calendar. There are a lot of good movies based on true stories, but unless the film states it is totally “non-fiction,” the story is a dramatization of actual events.

So what will happen on December 21, 2012?

Good question. Probably not at all what you’ve been led to accept or believe. Ancient Mayans from Guatemala created their calendar by using astronomy — which is not in any particular alignment with modern “religion.” In fact, Mayan astronomers calculated and supplemented their calendar with Mayan mythology, various god forms, and other worlds. As some of you may have seen, the ancient Mayan symbols depicted such gods, and other mythological forms — which, in my opinion, bare a striking resemblance to rune stones (dating back to the Viking age and Norse religion [Paganism]).

Because the Mayan calendar was in fact one of the most modernized forms of calculating time in ancient history, it does still bare noteworthy attention to be studied and understood by Western civilization. Much of its enumeration was tied into major events during their lifetime. Some of these events merely coincided with certain times, thus these dates were marked to represent those events. To give a stereotypical example of such an event, one could take random landing dates of Hurricane Katrina and decidedly create an event marker on a calendar cycle. Based on numerical calculations and mythological beliefs, philosophers (and maybe astronomers) might calculate that such an event could occur again on August 29, 2055. It’s a stab in the dark, but it could potentially sway people to action, or even constrain those who fear the future.

What do you think?

Personally, if the Mayan calendar is indicative of any potential event, I’d like to believe that it will be a positive one. Perhaps, since the Mayan calendar was based on mythology, astronomy, and numerical calculations, it may just well signify the coming of the Age of Aquarius — which is just fine with me. Ushering a cycle of brotherly love and peace right now doesn’t seem half bad. aquarius-picPeace — know it, love it, and share it.

  1. Anything is possible but when God is Love I prefer hope over fear even if the Rapture did happen.

  2. I have been reading a novel which to me is about medeival times, in it is mention of the rune stones being a way to time travel if you are sensitive to them. I really like it. 🙂

    When I think about what 2012 will bring, especially now in 2009, I think of this date as only new beginnings, like the ending of a 3 beginning a new cycle.

  3. Hello Tumel and thank you for taking the time to leave your positive feedback. I am very familiar with the Runes, and have at one time in my life cast Runes for prophecy…or perhaps better said, insight. I was drawn to the Runes because of a dream I had several years ago. I remember (in the dream) that I was walking along the top of a mountain with a brigade of soldiers. As we reached the end of the cliff, there was a long, rope bridge. On the other side of the bridge was a tribe of Native American Indians.

    As I walked alongside this brigade, stones similar to hengestone arose from the earth. On the faces of these stones were hieroglyphs, which made absolutely no sense to me; nor did they appear as anything I had ever seen. As we neared the edge of the cliff, the “Wise Man” from the Indian tribe, stopped the General (who was leading the troops). He said to the general, “You can not go further from this cliff…for if you do, you will never be able to turn back.” I then awoke from the dream.

    Metaphorically speaking, one can draw a million conclusions…and none at all. However, I believe the dream was relavent to the time frame of roughly two years prior to the Iraq invasion in 2003. My opinion of the dream was the “once we entered this territory, there would be no turning back. <– This has, after all become a long-running war; and the Native Americans often rely on ancient relics, as well as their tribal physicians for counsel.

    The Runes, are in fact, a part of the earth and nature; and harness a strong connection to the energy of Gaia — Mother Earth; so yes, new beginnings are on the way. This may be, however, calamatous to those who fear the change for growth and mental exploration. This will be a time for reckoning…and awakening. There will be those who may panic (as has already happened and continues to happen) and may spiral out of control…but this is of their own makings. 2012 will be a time of renewal and new belief systems. Humanity, as a whole, will learn to break the chains and bonds of dictatorial leaderships and move forward in their spiritual, mental, and emotional consciousness. This, in turn, will eventually lead to brotherly love and peace — absolute acceptance without the bars of indifference and intolerance. We, as a whole…the human race, will finally be on the path to achieving greatness.

    The path will be long and maybe even treacherous along the way, but we will finally overcome the challenges of primordial behaviors that have been engrained in our DNA for thousands of years.

    Peace — and praytell, what novel is it that you are reading?

  4. BRAVO! THANK YOU! people are getting so worked up over this it’s ridiculous. Age of aquarius is gonna be freekin sweet!

  5. Thanks CA, there are a number of astrological events that occur on time. The birth of Jesus was not marked by a “Star” but by a “heavenly event” which was the aligning of celestial bodies.

  8. Well, we can rule out the ‘rapture,’ as that was predicted to be a 1st century event for the saints living in the transition period between the Old and New Covenants. (30-70CE). The preterist view of the ‘end times’ (end of the Old Covenant Age, not the planet) is the most valid one, though a troublesome paradigm shift for most Christians, at least at first, until they understand it better. Jesus has returned. He lives in our hearts. He’s wondering why we keep looking for Him to crack the sky when He said He was coming ‘soon’ and ‘shortly’ to people living 20 centuries ago.

    So obviously, we’ve been way off in date setting before. 🙂 But the way I see it, even if the calculations are wrong, 12/21/2012 offers the potential to make this world a better place. Everyone wants and seeks a change for the better, and Jose Arguelles may have been the catalyst for just that. I truly hope so.

  9. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d
    like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
