Mayan priests debunk 2012 end-of-world prophesy

The sky is falling! – Not

Chicken_Little
We are now a mere 8 days from the much-ballyhooed Dec. 21, 2012 End of the World supposedly prophesied by the ancient Mayans. Reportedly, a panic is spreading among children and suicidal teeangers. As many as 1-in-10 people believe in the Mayan prophesy.
Please take a deep breath.
The world won’t end in 8 days.
How can I say that? Because we have Mayan priests’ own words about 2012 debunking this stupid prophesy.

Here are their words, helpfully provided by blogger George Washington for ZeroHedge, who emphasizes that Mayan elders say something very different from what we might have heard. The elders insist that the 2012 end-of-the-world notion is strictly a western misconception.
Here are what Mayan elders say:

  • Wakatel Utiw – leader of the National Council of Elders Mayas, Xinca and Garifuna, Day Keeper of the Mayan Calendar, and 13th generation Quiche Mayan Spiritual Leader –  says that the end of the Maya calendar has nothing to do with the end of the world. He also explains that December 21, 2012 might not even be the end of this cycle of the calendar: “Contrary to popular belief the living elders of the Maya do not agree that December 21, 2012 is the end of their calendar. A new ‘Sun’ represents the beginning of a new Long Count cycle in the calendar system of approximately 5,200 years, which they say may not happen for many years.”
  • Tz’utujil Mayan elder Tata Pedro Cruz says that the world will not end in 2012, quoting Mayan elder and priest Carlos Barrios (who has extensively studied the Mayan calendars): “Anthropologists visit the temple sites and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It’s just their imagination. Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed.”
  • Leonzo Barreno – a Guatemalan native who was trained by Mayan elders to read the ancient calendars – says the ‘apocalypse’ concept is a false interpretation of the Long Count calendar, that the Mayan elders taught him that December 21 this year simply marks the start of a new calendar: ‘There are two sides to the story,’ he told CBC. ‘The one that we know is this apocalyptic meaning that has been given to the Long Count. ‘The other side of the story is the Mayan side, which you rarely see on media articles, because they never interview my own people.’ ‘For them it’s a joyous event, not an apocalyptic event. What is coming is the end of a calendar and the beginning of a new one.
  • Ricardo Cajas – president of the Collective of Native Organizations of Colectivo de Organizaciones Indígenas de Guatemalasays the date did not represent an end of humanity or fulfillment of the catastrophic prophecies, but that the new cycle “supposes changes in human consciousness.” (Translation).
  • Pedro Celestino Yac Noj – a Mayan sage living in Cuba – says “The 21st is for giving thanks and gratitude and the 22nd welcomes the new cycle, a new dawn.”
  • Mayan priest Jose Manrique Esquive believes that 2012 may bring a transition to a better time for humankind.
  • The AP reports in 2009, “Apolinario Chile Pixtun is tired of being bombarded with frantic questions about the Mayan calendar supposedly “running out” on Dec. 21, 2012. After all, it’s not the end of the world.” “Definitely not, the Mayan Indian elder insists.” “Chile Pixtun, a Guatemalan, says the doomsday theories spring from Western, not Mayan ideas.”

And if you don’t believe what the current Mayan leaders say, please remember that archaeologists recently found a cache of ancient Mayan calendars which goes thousands of years past 2012.
Lastly, none other than Pope Benedict 16th recently declared that – due to a miscalculation – we are currently in AD 2016, not 2012. So if the world indeed ends on Dec. 21, 2012, then we must have missed it four years ago!

READ…”The MAYAN CONNECTION” by Jose Arguiles (? not absolutely sure of the authors name as i don’t have the book in front of me)…He explains exactly “how” the Calendar works from start to finish…the last day is sometime between the 21st of December and the first week of January, 2013…or so! And the Calendar says that the “…human race will be raised to the next level of consciousness!” NOT THE END OF THE WORLD!

Hey Bobby, I believe Jose Arguelles is the correct spelling for the author, but beware! He has lots of good info on the workings of the calendar but there is a bizarre underlying “prophecy” thing with lots of blind cult followers. This prophecy included a “two towers falling” type reference before 9/11/2001 and fringe-associated websites http://www.tortuga.com and http://www.13moon.com applauded the fulfillment shortly after. (I, seriously, have a weird prophecy game in my garage and gave the group a $100 “donation” for some materials. This fueled my quest to find out about the “real” Mayan calendar). Ask a follower about dealing… Read more »

Thank You, Paul Guyer!
Finally…someone at last that “finally” understands something about what I wrote! As for the cult “thingy???” I believe most everything we “know” today has been “scrambled” over the centuries and turned into one “thing” or “another” and is NOW…so far removed from it’s “original intentions”…that we will be lucky to ever find the truth!

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this fascinating post and the clarification of the Mayan prophecy. This is most interesting.

Eowyn;
There is no such thing as a Mayan priest. How did you become so gullible? Our Lady of Guadalupe did such a thorough housecleaning in Mexico that whatever the Aztecs left of Mayan ‘religion’ was completely washed away. Even the freemasonic rulers of the country had nothing left to exterminate when they came after the Catholic hierarchy. If it’s called Mayan, it’s new-age, postmodern tourist trappers, who couldn’t tell an equinox from Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Well, here’s how it probably went down: Mayan King to his servants: I want you to make me a calendar so that we can measure the time of the ages. I want you to put your best effort into this and make it really special, capiche! Servants: You got it, your most holiness, great one, etc. A while later: Servants: Oh great King, we have labored for many moons to create the calendar you desire. We have sought out the greatest astronomers, astrologers, mathematicians, and even sought out the great gurus who reside on our highest mountain tops. (Of course… Read more »
