2012 Mayan calendar questions are now occupying the minds of many people around the world. Whether you live in the US, Europe or far east Asia you probably have heard of the end of the world theories that have circulated around the web and television. Many people are preparing themselves to deal with the worst 2012 end of the world cataclysmic turnouts others dismiss it as a conspiracy. But what are the main theories behind 2012 “end of the world” events?. We will go over the “Galactic Alignment” and the “Approaching Planet X.” which have created many 2012 Mayan calender questions.
The Galactic alignment and the approaching “Planet X” (or Nibiru) are the two main theories that are being attributed for the much talked about cataclysmic effects of dooms day or end of the world, as we know it.
These two doomsday theories are widely based on the indications of the Mayan calendar, which has “predicted” a galactic season to roll over to a new era on December 21, 2012.
What is proven to happen from 2012 theory?
Similar to how the movement of the earth around the sun causes many different seasonal changes, which we call summer or winter, the galactic movement of the sun around its galaxy will affect the earth in a more intense fashion for longer periods of time. Because of the long duration, which takes for such galactic changes, they are unknown and undetectable to our relatively short human life.
Although such galactic changes may or may not happen in 2012, it is scientifically proven fact that they will take place at some point in the future.
What is the significance of the Mayan Calendar?
December 21 for the ancient Mayans marked a huge celebration period that was recognized as the end of a whole calendar cycle. This calendar was not only based on the solar system (movement of the earth around the sun) or the lunar system (movement of the moon around the earth) but astonishingly it was based on a whole galactic system movement, comprising and including the of movements of the moon around the earth, the earth around the sun, as well as our sun around it’s galaxy.
What is a galactic system and how does it work?
Just as the earth moves around the sun – identical to many other solar systems in the universe – our sun itself is in constant circulation around the black hole of its (our) galaxy. Most people are quite surprised to find out that the sun is moving at a speed of nearly 1,000,000 km every hour and is constantly accelerating. So with its massive gravitational force the sun is also pulling the earth and rest of our neighboring planets along with it – We too, just as everything else on earth, are moving at this enormous speed with the sun.
Did the Mayans get it right?
As explained above, the Mayans with their incredible knowledge of astronomy were able to predict the movements of the moon around the earth, the movements of the earth around the sun and amazingly the movement of the sun (hence our solar system) around the Milky Way galaxy. And as far as our astronomers and scientists have proven prove, they did such prediction flawlessly and exactly to the point, which has given rise to many 2012 Mayan calendar questions these day.
Why should we believe in the Mayan calendar?
The Mayan years were so accurate that it eliminated the need for Leap years, something today’s calendars cannot avoid annually. These ancient people who lived (as far as archaeologists can trace back) nearly 5000 to 7000 years ago kept their solar calendar years to exactly 365.25 days.
The Maya were not just astronomers, but sophisticated astronomers; people in the pre-Classic period whose daily work revolved on their observation of the skies and stars. As a matter of fact, they appear to be the only pre-telescopic civilization to demonstrate knowledge of the Orion Nebula.
What exactly does the Mayan calendar predicts?
The Mayan calendar predicts that the sun will finish its one complete rotation around the Milky Way galaxy, hence rolling over to a new galactic year. For the humankind on the earth, each galactic year takes approximately 26,000 25 million solar years. At this time the sun will cross exactly through the galaxy’s equinox, which could also be considered as the Galaxy’s “equator”. If this prediction is true then it means that during such special galactic alignment the sun and the earth will be exposed to an increase in the gravitational forces that are triggered from the Milky Way galaxy’s center, commonly know as the “Black Hole,” hence disastrous consequences to follow.
As mentioned before, the reason why the 2012 Mayan calendar is so highly regarded is because it is considered to be even more sophisticated than modern day calendars and it so complicated that we still cannot decipher everything the calendar predicts. It consists of a 365-day agricultural calendar, as well as a 260-day sacred calendar. The people of Maya had measured the length of the solar year to a high degree of accuracy and was perfected to a precision that our own Gregorian calendar lacks.
When exactly did the Mayans predict doomsday?
The ancient people of Maya produced a calendar that predicts the galactic alignment and disruption in the gravitational of force of the earth to be exactly on 12/21/2012 at 11:11 p.m. Universal Time. Although it is commonly believed amongst scientists that such disruptions will not occur rapidly, such date and time may very well be the start of a new Galactic seasons and consequent disruptions.
The Mayan calendar’s solar tracking of the earthly days were extremely accurate, which is why many people believe that their early galactic prediction will also prove to be exact. Although there is no doubt that the solar system will eventually cross through the Milky Way’s equinox, there are many scientists engaged in vigorous debates on whether or not the Mayans were correct about their prediction and whether or not this will prove to cause a polar shift on December 2012; something that remains to be witnessed for accuracy.
What has science proven about the Mayan calendar?
There are many people who are fearful about events of 2012 and many that have full doubts. However, scientists have proven that cataclysmic events are destined to take place on earth. However, whether or not the start of a new Mayan year in 2012 is thought to be the start of the cataclysmic disasters is yet to be proven.
What happened to the Mayas?
The Mayas continuously calculated future events through the studying the skies, mostly considerably the Venus cycle, in the observatory named, The Pyramid of Kukulkan. Their work and their living continued until their calendar mysteriously stops on a winter solstices. ( solstice is an astronomical event that happens twice each year, when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is most inclined toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun’s apparent position in the sky to reach its northernmost or southernmost extreme. – Wikipedia)
The day the Mayan race and their calendar stop is exactly on December 21st, 2012, which is the day winter solstices. Many people who reject the Mayan calendar perdition label this date as being purely coincidental. As a matter of fact, this is exactly what started the whole debate of the 2012 Mayan calendar.
How could a civilization so intelligent, so precise, so devoted, just abruptly stop to exist on a specific day? What is even stranger is the whole civilization seems to have just vanished, with no descendants left behind them. 2012 Mayan calendar questions will continue to get more intensified as we get close and closer to this date.
