About the author:
Trained in statistics and raised by hippies... what a combination! Perhaps that lends the unique vision I have to the world and the repeating cycles apparent around us, all throughout history. Hence my interest in the Mayan Calendar and the furor surrounding the End Date coming at the close of this year, 2012.
As I am just embarking on my publishing career, you can tell I don't put much stock in the world coming to an end this year, but that will become obvious to the readers of my study on the 2012 phenomena.
That is also the subject on my blog, which I have been adding to since 2007. But that is not the only interest I have delved into over the years so if the Mayan Calendar is not your thing, perhaps my next book will interest you. Only time will tell where my pen will take me.
12-20-2012; Our Last Golden Sunset?
R. S. Marshal
The End-Sate of the Mayan Calendar is rapidly approaching and many people sense it will bring change. Though most of the 2012 "prophets" see this change as the beginning of a Golden Age, there are many who see only doom and destruction coming on December 21st.
But did the Maya ever mention either of those possibilities? We will sift through the evidence from Mesoamerican myth as well as that gleaned from archeological digs. Though pious monks have destroyed much of the writings of the ancient culture, there is more being uncovered every year.
Examination of what the Maya were in the past and what they believed offers a wealth of clues to what their calendar was really about.
And it also reveals why the New Age prophets are erroneous in their pronouncements of the event coming at the end of 2012. It was never intended to warn of the end of the world or to usher in any Golden Age.
Still, the message is earth-shattering in many respects.
