'Apocalypse in 2012?'

'Just as "Y2K" and its batch of predictions about the year 2000 have become a distant memory, here comes "Twenty-twelve."

Fueled by a crop of books, Web sites with countdown clocks, and claims about ancient timekeepers, interest is growing in what some see as the dawn of a new era, and others as an expiration date for Earth: December 21, 2012.

The date marks the end of a 5,126-year cycle on the Long Count calendar developed by the Maya, the ancient civilization known for its advanced understanding of astronomy and for the great cities it left behind in Mexico and Central America.'

Thank you, Ben, the Tzolk'in civilisation is (was), indeed, an enigma. Too bad that most of the West's exposure to their eXistenZ is via Catholic agent provocateur director Mel Gibson's cinematic fantasy, "Apocalypto". Oh, well.

Two such 2012 websites which THIS writer recommends are as follows:

The latter one is maintained by world explorer & goddess of anesthesiaology EJ Clark's & green energy proponent Dr Brooks Alexander Agnew's efforts. BTW, Dr Agnew is arranging an oceanic voyage into the Antarctic polar aperture into the Hollow Earth! Fun!

Never stop looking,
