    Here's what's not going to happen this year: the earth won't end on Dec. 12; it won't be swallowed by a black hole, consumed by the sun or get taken out by a collision with the imaginary planet Nibiru. Here's what will happen: as of today, more people than ever will believe that those calamities will occur on precisely the day they're predicted to. The reason: a new discovery -- just reported in the journal Science -- of the earliest known Mayan astronomical calendar, featuring elaborate and detailed work by one of the most impressive civilizations that ever lived.
    It was earlier interpretations of other Mayan calendars that gave rise to the Internet-fueled doomsday scenarios of the past few years -- mostly because one calendar cycle the Mayans computed ends Dec. 12 (though no one paid much attention to the fact that another one was supposed to begin immediately after that). If people can stay focused on the science this time though, they'll find a lot to be impressed by in the new findings.

    The site described in the Science paper seems modest at first: a small painted room unearthed in 2011 in the Mayan ruins in Xultun, Guatemala. The overall Xultun site was first described by archaeologists in 1915 and has been explored -- and, sadly, plundered -- intermittently ever since. But the 2011 find was something new. As described in the paper by a team led by archaeologist William Saturno of Boston University, the room was built in the early 9th century and appears to have been originally used to depict historical figures and events in Mayan history. The west, north and east walls of the room, as well as the ceiling, were covered

    as far as i have learned on this topic is that we are approaching the end of an age. it is the end of the world in some ways or better yet the end of this world and the structure of power. if you look close enough you can already see the changes occurring. people all around the world are tired of being ruled by a very small group of families or elites whatever you want to call them. we are currently in the information age where people are finding out that most the things we have been taught is blatant lies and distortion. changes are coming but it wont be like the movies where its an overnight thing thats not how the world and nature works but 1 day we will be able to look back on this time as a time when things started to change, people woke up one by one not a mass event

    one more thing is that i have read somewhere that while the mainstream media are pointing everybody to the mayans as always with everthing in this reality we know we have to look a little deeper and what we may find is that the real genius behind the mayans were actually the olmecs who were no doubt here long long before the mayans and were a branch of the kushite empire who traveled the world leaving thier mark everywhere they were. so i would like anybody here with any information on the relationship between the mayans and the olmecs to post it
