2012 - The End of the World and The Science of It All
Culture and Society Author: CA Perez
2012 - The End of the World and The Science of It All
Hollywood just released its latest doomsday movie, 2012. If your are into special effects, then this a movie to see. If your looking for information on the Mayan 2012 prophecy, you will disappointed.There is however more science in that movie than all that has been written about 2012 and the end of the world.

Why can I say that? Think of the technology that went into creating the special effects of that movie. I swear it looked like real life photography.
Hordes of people fell into crevices deeper than the eye could see, buildings crumbled to the ground, and tsunamis drowned the coastline. It was like a National Geographic photographer was filming the whole event.

Obviously, the idea for the movie came from Roland Emmerich's knowledge of the Mayan prophecy, but it was hardly mentioned in the film.

I can only guess that the prophecy was not mentioned more often because there is not much scientific information to back up the claims of the cataclysmic soothsayers.

Let's look at what is scientifically known about this phenomena.
  1. The Mayan were astronomers and great mathematicians.
  2. Their calendars recorded time in cycles, much like our own: a year, a decade, a century.
  3. Bolon Yookte' K'uh the Mayan god of war, conflict, and the underworld is mentioned in the same codex that identifies 2012 as the end of the Mayan cycle.
  4. That codex refers to blackness and the descent of the god, Bolon Yookte' K'uh.
That's all there is, no more. Everything else is inferred. It is prophecy. This archaeological discovery has generated almost as much conjecture as the Book of Revelations.

We should not be to quick to discount the end of the world soothsayers. Even scientists cannot agree on the translation of the 2012 Mayan codex. The well known and respected archaeologist and anthropologist, Michael D. Coe, and author of the scholarly book, The Maya, wrote:

there is a suggestion ... that Armageddon would overtake the degenerate peoples of the world and all creation on the final day of the thirteenth [b'ak'tun]. Thus ... our present universe [would] be annihilated on December 24, AD 2011, [later revised to December 23, 2012] when the Great Cycle of the Long Count reaches completion." [Wikipedia].
