2012--The Dreaded Year Has Arrived
Fear of the year 2012 has been simmering for a couple of years at least. World issues and events have caused those fears to boil and bubble to the top of the cauldron, but then the ominous broth would settle to simmer again for awhile, until the next eruption of conjecture about what 2012 means. I wrote more than a year ago about this impending number that has now burst to the top of our calenders
I wrote the following in an article I gave the title “2012: The End?”:
Ominous sounds of the approaching year 2012 rumble in the ears of this generation. The thunder comes from constant media mantra-meanderings about the end of days as foretold by the Mayan calendar hundreds of years ago. Is this generation looking the end of the world squarely in the face on December 21, 2012?
The year 2012 is but some twenty-seven months away, and the hype is on. December 21 at 11:11 pm Universal Time of that year will...well, we don't really know. But, it will—according to pundits from scientists, astrologers, and religionists to new agers, fiction writers, and documentarians—be very bad indeed for inhabitants of the earth
I presented in my article what one website praising the Mayans had to say:
The Mayan civilization was extremely advanced in mathematics, engineering and astronomy. They also had an incredible understanding of time and space. Various calendars were in use to track time in linear progressions within cycles. The "Great Cycle" of the "Long Count" calendar equates to 5,125.36 years. The current Great Cycle is due to be completed on the winter solstice of 2012, December 21. So, it has been interpreted that on this day, the Great Cycle ends, time ends, so the Earth must end as well. (2012endofdays.org
 Todd and I are looking to install a regular feature for this portentious year of 2012, counting down to the doomsday prediction by the Mayans. But, remember, we are Rapture Ready, so it will be a feature unlike any other in analyzing that dreaded, approaching date, December 21, 2012. Stay tuned…
