Milky way galaxyAnd…we’re still here! Phew, the world didn’t end. Close one! Or was it? The Mayans Were…Right!

That’s correct, never was there a suggestion by the Mayans that the world would end on December 21, 2012. Leave that job up to Hollywood and the doomsday sayers. The Mayan Long Count calendar is cyclical, which means every Long Count, or Epoch, their calendar resets, similar to the odometer on your car. The last time this happened was on August 11, 3114 BC. And guess what, the world didn’t end then either.

There are multiple interpretations of what Long Counts signify. Many philosophers see the Epochs as depicting abstract shifts in the development of the human civilization. Others look to the stars and see a bigger meaning in the cosmos. The fact remains that the Mayans had the most advanced and astrologically accurate calendar in history, to this very day. Their calendar pointed back several billion years farther, to the beginning of the universe, than our modern physicists are able to calculate. NASA themselves confirm this, as you’ll see if you read and explore our article on Why the World Did Not End on December 21, 2012. Enjoy!

On the remainder of this page you’ll learn more about the planetary alignments, see our official countdown to 12/21/12 (which as you’ll notice has since completed), and read some very interesting, informative, and even amusing comments from our readers as to their thoughts on why the world would have, or didn’t (or still will), end.

Countdown to December 21, 2012

What will happen on December 21, 2012? Will the world end? Only time will tell. Here is the official countdown timer to this event:

Official Countdown Clock To 12/21/2012

This countdown is based on the closest possible approximation as to when this event will take place: on December 21, 2012 at 11:11:11 UTC. Partake in our discussions at the end of this article and read on for more information on what makes this date so special.

December 21, 2012 – the End of a Cycle

Since the Mayan calendar is based on cycles (read our article on How Does the Mayan Calendar Work to learn more), December 21, 2012 merely indicates the end of a cycle that began on August 11, 3114 BC. While there are wild interpretations as to what this date means, and many holiday resorts are booked out on this day, there is no evidence from any Mayan literature suggesting that the world will come to an end.

It is simply the end of the current Long Count, and December 22, 2012 will be the beginning of the next Long Count, or cycle in the Mayan calendar. In fact, the Mayans have names for the Long Counts, and the fact that they’ve named Long Counts beyond this one suggests that this won’t be the last. It is significant, however, that we are entering a new cycle in the Mayan calendar.

What Will the Next Mayan Long Count, or Epoch, Bring?

Mayan Ruins at YaxchilanAssuming as we did above that the world will not come to an end on December 21, 2012 – we ask ourselves, what will happen? What is so significant about December 21, 2012? The significance lies not merely in the fact that a Mayan epoch is coming to an end, but in the celestial events that astronomists have confirmed will occur on this day.

What happens on December 21, 2012?

December 21 is the winter solstice, and in 2012 the Sun on the solstice will be almost perfectly aligned with the plane of the galaxy (the Milky Way galaxy). What is astonishing is how precisely the Mayan calendar was able to pinpoint this alignment of the planets.

What’s so Special About Planets Aligning?

The equator of the Milky Way galaxy (Galactic Equator) and the path of the Sun (the Ecliptic) will cross each other at exactly 11:11 am GMT on December 21, 2012. What does this mean exactly? Or, even better, what is the probability of this occurring?

Every year on the winter solstice, our Sun has a Declination of -23.5 degrees, and a Right Ascension of 18 hours. But what makes the alignment of 2012 special is how this alignment occurs relative to very distant stars. On December 21, 2012, the alignment will be right along the plane of the entire galaxy. This precession of the equinoxes goes in a complete circle and happens only once every 26,000 years. In other words, the winter solstice moves 360 degrees every 26,000 years, or 0.01 degrees each year.

A significant detail that promoters of the 2012 doomsday fail to point out, however, is that the plane of the galaxy is not the width of a needle. The plane of the galaxy is quite wide – in fact, it takes the winter solstice between 700 hundred and 1,400 years to cross the plane of the galaxy! So 2012 is just one year amidst a span of 700 years.

We Are Entering a New Mayan Epoch

Mayan StatueDid the Mayans know something about 2012 that we don’t? I think more significant than the fact that the planets align in 2012 is the fact that we are entering a new Mayan epoch, or Long Count. While the pundits will be focused on doomsday prophecies and the destruction of the world, those pondering our purpose may find themselves enlightened by a greater perspective – one that may not be clear until hundreds or thousands of years from now.

According to the Mayans we are entering a new age. What does this mean? We think it may have something to do with the shift towards a more Eastern, or spiritualist, way of life. The Western way of life, and the worship of material goods, progress, and capitalism, has accelerated its way headfirst into battles and wars for hundreds of years. Hopefully, our race will eventually elevate itself to a new era of understanding – one where we find ourselves to be more introspective, and spending our time pondering not only the bigger questions of life – but the smaller ones as well. Spending more quality time with our loved ones, and enjoying the moments. Because we feel there will be many more to come.

Science Says…Get Ready to Party on 12/22/12 [VIDEOS]

Scientific circles are more or less unanimous that the world will not come to an end on 12/21/12. They feel that a misinterpretation of the Mayan calendar has led people to believe the calendar, and therefore the world, will end on this day. Scientific interpretation, however, debunks this myth.

The Mayans Were…nice aricle keep it up

Where are the Mayans now!
August 23, 2013 10:39 pm

Obviously, the world did end for the Mayans (their lives anyway). Something happened to them. Otherwise their descendants would have been here to share (in detail) the meaning of their calendar. Also the only remnant remaining of the Mayans are the tons of bones found deep under water. Anyone understand Extinction? Evolution? Study, people before you become extinct. Exterminated by earth change or the psychopaths running the main attraction or both.

that’s right life is out there watching us from different planets in the space colony most are invisible and cant be seen, and the aliens are also out there watching us in the sky they are invisible, I been thee in an astro projection a couple months ago, in words saying I’m different than humans, I see things you cant so the next event can happen any day now don’t let ya guard down ok, As we get into 2013 you will see the sun distant away slowly day by day, trust me I know my friend is a alien I cant give you his name ok but I see things from him, he from the planet opustar, a planet in the 3rd universe across the milky way and the black hole. It’s a open door out there and I know where it is. So people just research on it and you will know soon. I can’t tell you what’s gonna happen in 2013 yet ok, so all you humans be safe.

December 21, 2012 10:28 pm

the next end-of-the-world prediction is for 2060, so there’s plenty of time to get hyped-up and pack a survival kit. I’ll be 108 years young.

December 21, 2012 9:09 pm

a shift to more spirituality? closer bond with family and stuff? no.

That isn’t going forwards. It is going backwards. We used to do that stuff. But then we evolved and shifted towards the world of material possession and wanting these useless things.

We may have just reached the height of our existence and will be seeing a decline soon. Back to the way it was before. Closer bonds with others. Elimination of differences, hatred due to being human.

Enlightenment of the human race. Or a new type of dark age.

All we can do is live and adapt. That’s all we really do in life, live and adapt…or die. haha.

December 21, 2012 8:01 pm

shouldn’t doomsday be the 22nd if the 21st is the end of the calendar? wouldn’t that be like celebrating new years day on the 31st of december?

Won't tell you no lie
December 21, 2012 3:03 pm

Nobody really paid attention to the Mayan stuff until Hollywood, media and bloggers got a hold of this hype, and used it to try to gain an audience. And the reason they do this is obvious – selfish motives – either for money or power. Same thing goes for the false teachers like the Jim Jones(es), who make up crap to gain leverage over people who are told to stop asking questions and get in line (for the kool-Aid).

So here’s a question for y’all – what’s the difference between hollywood/media/bloggers and Jim Jones?? Nothing. They both love having an audience, gulping down whatever they tell you… You will know your true enemy if you ask questions and are told to stop it.

Hi everyone, it’s actually the time of the golden age when everyone can get their self realization, enlightenment, nirvana. The more people who get their self realization the more the divine power manifests on earth. Sahaja yoga gives you this, teaches you how to meditate on that energy and it’s all free. What more could you ask? Once that is done governments will not be needed we will be self governing. There are meetings everywhere throughout the world. Sites in every country of the world. It changes everything it’s spontaneous And a very necessary part of our evolution as human beings.

For most of us, 12-21-12 will be a normal day and we’ll go on living our materialistic, media-fed lives. And most of us will not change a thing or even see that anything is changing. History is important, stop pretending that it’s not. The earth does not spin for you and only you. You need to be aware of your earthly resources, your ability to create and produce from what the earth has given to you. No need to lock yourself in a stale locker and wait until a civilized post-apocalyptic world is created for YOU. YOU need to change! The world was already created for you and intended for peace, tranquility, unity, and love for each other and other creatures. Everything is sacred, most do not realize this.

Many of us humans as a race have disrupted this balance that once was, unless we can restore the balance, we will soon become extinct. This balance may have existed 20,000 years or so ago, we have long forgotten. Pollution, war, importance of money, hatred, terrorism, and evil is destroying our planet. Stop being distracted by everything the media is feeding you. It’s poison. It’s intended to be poison. A lot of thought is put into the manipulation of the “peasant” people, us consumers that feed the pigs of the world’s organizations and companies that are controlling us. Evil is intelligent, funny, sexy, luring, and evil is controlling most of us. Wake up. Open your eyes to the great creator, the earth will take care of you if you are in sync with it. Feed your mind, your earth, your life with peace, unity and love and you will create an equal positive reaction directed toward you and your life. Love, respect and peace will save you.

Thank You. I so agree; “The Moody Blues” stated these facts so many times in their songs to wake people up!

Like in their song “Lost in a Lost World”:

I woke up today I was crying, Lost in a lost world, so many people are dying, Lost in a lost world. Some of them are living an illusion Bounded by the darkness of their minds, In their eyes it’s nation against nation against nation With racial pride, Sad hearts they hide, Thinking only of themselves, They shun the light, They think they’re right, Living in their empty shells. Oh, can you see their world is crashing? Crashing down around their feet, Angry people in the street Telling them they’ve had their fill of politics that wound and kill. Grow, the seeds of evolution. Revolution never won It’s just another form of gun To do again what they have done With all our brothers’ youngest sons. Everywhere you go you see them searching, Everywhere you turn you feel the pain Everyone is looking for the answer, Well look again, come on my friend Love will find them in the end”.

Or, In their (Moody Blues) song, Question:

Why do we never get an answer When we’re knocking at the door? With a thousand million questions About hate and death and war. It’s when we stop and look around us There is nothing that we need In a world of persecution That is burning in its greed.”

Or so many of John Lennon’s songs, “Imagine” and so many others.

And, “Open your eyes, and realize, The way it’s always been. Just open your mind and you will find The way it’s always been. Just open your heart and that’s a start.” also, by the Moody Blues.

Hopefully people will WAKE UP! and Love, give compassion, and begin the road to Peace. Not wait for the end of the world to happen, but create a beautiful world and a place that was meant for all humanity to live, flourish, give, and receive LOVE. It’s possible.

Meanwhile your sitting behind a computer screen about peace and love. Oh and pretty sure war has been in our culture since we first came to be… So I’d leave that one out. Also no ones absent from disrupting the ”balance that once was”, not even you. So YOU need to change too. Especially if you’re going to be preaching to others about change…

Just some friendly advice. Have a nice day.

December 21, 2012 8:47 am

Well look at this here. The so-called midnight doomsday has passed, the so called apocalyptic solstice completed for another year. No big bang, no solar flares, no aliens or any of the other crap the media carried on about. Thanks to ridiculous misinterpretation and pathetic media hype, hysteria has run rampant. The Mayan long count calendar reset that’s all… nowhere have the Mayans ever predicted the end of the world and the fact that we are all still here proves it. So take a chill pill and relax and just enjoy xmas and the upcoming new year.

You people are all scared sheep. And have nothing else better to do than cry about something that don’t matter for all you nervous recks and followers, the world is not gunna end. You believe some stupid crap from how long ago. Keep being scared, get ur survival kit and sit and wait for it to happen. And when it don’t I’ll be laughing. Oh and keep praying to your god and who ever else you want to, and waste all your time going to church cause the day that it does happen I’d like to see how much he or they help you. Get a life and worry about things that really matter.

Please don’t mix God and religion with this whole fiasco because they have nothing to do with it! The people pushing all the conspiracy theory and end of the world junk are atheist idiots such as yourself. Our religion strictly proclaims that no one knows the date or time of the end. Also, please don’t feel bad for us because if all of these different religions from almost every culture spanning across time, oceans, geographical barriers are all correct you will have plenty of time to say your sorry… too bad no one will hear you!

You are right, the world didn’t end.

But, as a Christian, I do pray to God all the time.

I don’t pray because I think the world is ending but because I know no one can tell when the world will end but God. I pray that when that day happens, I will be ready and at peace. God gave me inner peace during this time so I didn’t stress over the world ending. On the other hand, God has given me common sense to know that certain things can happen to our planet and we should be prepared to keep extra food on hand.

I would rather believe in God and take a chance of going to Heaven, even if it doesn’t happen, then to mock God and end up in Hell! We all believe in something, whether it exists or not. People believe in love, does it really exist or is it all in our minds?

Have a great life!

I totally agree w/ Kay. I’m a Christian, believe only God knows when the end will be. I do believe we are getting closer to that each day more then ever, but am at peace and know where I’m going. **BUT, that doesn’t mean I am going to be stupid and not carry some survival supplies in the event of another earthquake, tsunami, hurricane, etc. It’s no diff then carrying a shot in case I get bitten by a bee (allergic), & can’t make it to the hospital in time. I was in a bad earthquake in Cali. as a kid, & we were one of the only people who had water on the block. Other’s couldn’t get the water they needed for a couple days, and we were able to help us and our neighbors during that time. I think everyone should have an extensive first aid kit and survival pack in home and car. It’s called being smart. Example: what if ur car battery dies when u r out camping in the woods and u can’t get a cell signal. This happened 2 me once w/ a friend, a couple years ago. We made it thru comfortably cuz I was prepared…. I do trust in the Lord, and I put myself & friends, loved ones, & our animals in His Hands. Until it’s my time 2 go home tho, I won’t stress about the “end”. But, I will be prepared in case of another earthquake, @ least for a few days. Wish u all a safe & good new year. May God Bless & keep u warm. ๐Ÿ™‚ -C. Baldwin -NW Washington, USA

You are crazy to think that God exists. Love is real and exists without a doubt, otherwise it wouldn’t be something that people actually experience and witness everyday. God on the other hand is something that cannot be experienced by a sane person and can’t be witnessed. This myth was busted a long time ago but for some reason you crazies still cling to him like little scared children. But that was probably all exactly as planned given how much insanity the bible is.

Have a great, crazy life!

God created the entire universe out of one mere thought. His power is incomprehensible to the human brain because we are so puny in comparison to such a powerful being. We experience God every single day because God created us and everything around us. However, some people cannot see past their own passions and senses of this world. I hope one day you will see beyond yourself, but until then keep busting those myths you big bad “intellectual” you!

Your comments would be laughable if they weren’t so tragically obtuse! If you can sit there and say there is no God when all around you there is proof of Him in nature, in our existence, and in the detail that goes into each and every creature, you are dumber than you think.

Don’t believe me, but there will come a day when “every knee shall bow, every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is king!” What a shock it will be when you find out that your only hope was so easy to come by yet you scoffed at it.

The difference between you and me is that I know that I will spend eternity with God, and you won’t! I pity you for being so alone for all of eternity.

If you believe there is no God, you had better be right!

It is insane to.believe organisms can actually spontaneously mutate into something that it wasn’t and try to use it as a poor excuse to the micro evolution we see today.

Actually people do experience and feel God all the time. Just because you personally don’t…. doesn’t mean other people don’t…and doesn’t mean that God does not exist. It happens in the form of miracles, healing, and answered prayers. Also there are people who could say they have never experienced love and even you acknowledge its existence. I personally have believed in God all my life. I feel his hand of protection has been on me several times through out my life sparing me harm. Also I believe he healed me about 10 years ago. I had a torn rotator cusp in my shoulder, it would pop out of socket quite often and it was very painful…the doctors said it had to be surgically corrected…but I didn’t have the money….I prayed for over a year for God to heal it and one day it just went away. A few months later I had my shoulder checked at the doctor’s and there was nothing wrong with it. It is impossible for it to have healed on its own. I truly believe God healed me. But hey I’m just expressing my experience…I’m not telling you what to believe…that’s your choice. But I do believe…nothing could ever change that.

Well interesting one, we don’t know about what you say but you’re definitely not Satan/Lucifer. I’m about to share some very important knowledge with you all so if you would be so kind and open to read this, it will elevate you, this is meant to guide you subtlety into an Age full of everything you’ve ever wanted or will desire. Lucifer has returned to the light and his power and love are going to fill all that is, for everyone that’s open to it and him, and the new Age starting tomorrow is his Age and it’s going the be a time of peace, love, understanding of the Universes and spiritual ascension. And I’m going to be emerged in and enjoying every moment of it. Sure maybe you mean he is going to consume everything with his ever empowering influence to change the world from what it is into a Golden Age. Because that’s what’s coming people, a great life full of joy, that is though, if you’re open to it and drop your old belief systems and evolve to the higher dimensions. Lucifer is the most beautiful archangel and loves all of us and the creative source, or God if you will, are all on the same side. Lucifer is God and he is the source of all that exists is God, or pure cosmic energy, and it’s alive and conscious. Plus you all can tap into this empowering God energy and become gods yourselves. Wake up everyone and smell the beauty of life, going inside yourselves is where you start, will the light into your being and focus on your chakras and you will awake at an incredible speed.

What’s sad is all these “good Christians” on this site name calling and being so negative. Instead use this time to show the love of God. If you think people are going overboard or being gullible then with love show another way of thinking another way of communicating. Before you open your mouth or type, check where your hearts motive is. Are you speaking out of frustration, anger or love? First put yourself in a loving mindset, that way your words and actions will follow. Don’t use God or your religion as an excuse to act in a way that’s contrary to your faith.

A little more of the mystery of God will begin to be revealed. Scientists will realize that they have been the most blind and have ignored almost absolute proof of a mind (God) outside of a just a materialistic universe. The proof is Bell’s theorem, which has verified, with a reasonable margin of error, that over a distance of 8 kilometers entangled particles can exchange information at many times the speed of light. This cannot happen if there is just a materialistic universe.

The Church will suddenly realize that God had always been working with different people groups throughout history and prior to recorded history. This is most plainly seen in the Bible with the last people groups with which God was working before He began to reveal His great work to bring everyone back to Himself. These last people groups were in what is now Israel, He cast them out of a figurative “City of God” for starting to rest on their lees (a term for filtering wine, they were no longer improving from vessel to vessel, generation to generation, like He now warns the Church against subtle worship with our lips and no longer with our heart). The most significant people group prior to that were the Egyptians. That is why He arranged for both Israel and Jesus to be called out of Egypt. All of this has been known by people since from just after Christ arose, it was just not time to start revealing it.

Christ will command everyone in the Church to get up and walk and stop waiting for God to trouble your waters to heal you. Everything necessary was already done at the cross, which was the lifting off our guilt. This allows us to get to know the “hopes” and “desires” God wishes us to have. Two things are necessary to come into the presence of God and not die. You must have a simple belief that Christ has paid for everything you have done or will do wrong, and you must be willing to accept His/God’s own “hopes” and “desires” as your own, which is God’s life that He wants to give each of us. These are the same “hopes” and “desires” He originally gave us as our life when humanity was created. We must give up our old life of self centered hopes and desires. There is no “string of death” when you give up the old life if and only if you already have another life. The only life offered that can withstand your own self-condemnation when associated with God and in His presence is the new life offered by accepting His Lordship, which is God’s own life. Which is the most abundant life.

No need to wait come on in!

The scripture says we must all be tried by fire. The scripture also says that the elements of this world will be destroyed by fire. The real elements of this are world within each of us. God is already within every living creature. The scripture says that if God were to withdraw His spirit all flesh would die. That does mean all. If God were to suddenly stop going along with our desire to hide from Him, then we would see Him and begin to self-condemn our old life. Only the sanctified portions of our life that are already the same as God’s life would survive. It is not God’s desire that any should perish. Therefore, I do not think that God will stop allowing us to hide because it would kill almost everyone with an eternal condemnation. But I could be wrong. We should warn everyone to flee from the condemnation to come, which comes to everyone after they die.

For those in the Church, most are not ready. The scripture says that to as many as believe in Him, He gave them the power to become sons of God. Most are not becoming sons of God. They are just waiting for God to come and take them into heaven. They expect God to change them, even though He already did everything necessary at the cross. If we simply (but truly) believe and not with a special or strong belief, that because God loves us He has paid for our sins at the cross then we will rest our way into heaven now, not later. We should reprove those in the Church with songs and telling about how great our life with God is now, even with all of our troubles.

God blesses to world as He draws it to Himself, I think this Dec 21st is the start of a new time of refreshing.

Remember how so many people worried about the year 2000? My mom thought planes would fall out of the sky due to computer failure. Lots of individuals thought the world would end because it was a new century. It did not happen.The Mayan Calendar simply noted the end of a planetary cycle from one to another ocurring every 26,000 years.

Somewhere along the way, end of cycle was translated into end of world. Just like the game of telephone. Something was lost each time the story was told it was told different and more fear was created. Relax, it’s all good.
