Early contact? Mayan calendar similar to ancient Chinese

th[7]Ancient Mayan and Chinese calendar systems share so many similarities, it is unlikely they developed independently, according to the late David H. Kelley, whose paper on the subject was published posthumously in August.

Kelley was a Harvard-educated archaeologist and epigrapher at the University of Calgary in Canada. He earned fame in the 1960s for major contributions toward deciphering the Mayan script. His article, titled “Asian Components in the Invention of the Mayan Calendar,” was written 30 years ago, but was only recently unearthed and published for the first time in the journal Pre-Columbiana.

In 1980, a major science journal had solicited the article, said Pre-Columbiana’s editor Dr. Stephen Jett. But, Jett said, “the editors rejected it as being overly documented for the journal’s spare format; understandably for so revolutionary an effort, Dave did not wish to weaken the documentation, and he never published the piece elsewhere.” Jett obtained Kelley’s permission to publish it before he died.  Read Complete Report

Chinese Explorers Paved Way for Euro Invasion of Americas (W Video)

uvs130303-001

Mark and Laura Nickless are translating an ancient Chinese chronicle, a history of exploration from 1433~34. What they have found so far – and they are no where near done – is a record of exploration to the very heart of North America, surprising evidence of a Mayan influence at Cahokia, and the inadvertent spread of deadly plague that cleared the majority of the populous from the continent.

They will present their findings at the Midwestern Epigraphic Society Spring Symposium, Airport Marriott, Columbus, Ohio, May 31st ~ June 2nd. Read more

The Mayan 2012 Prophecy: The Orwellian “End of the World” Doomsday is “Made in America”

The 2012 Mayan Prophecy has been readily distorted and misunderstood.

The End of the Mayan Calendar on December 21, 2012 has nothing to do with the “End of the World”.

In fact, the Mayan calendar does not end on December 21st, 2012.

Rather December 21 marks the beginning of a new “Long Cycle” in the Mayan calendar system. (See Washington’s Blog, End of the World: Hear the 2012 Prophecy … Direct from the Mouths of the Mayan Priests, Global Research, December 13, 2012)

The End of the World concept is a falsehood and misinterpretation of Mayan thought. . . . Read Complete Report

Fringe groups all set for end of the world

12:53 am | Thursday, December 20th, 2012

BUENOS AIRES—As mountaintops go, this one is for meditating. And the odd UFO sighting. But now it is closing for a few days to avert a mass suicide by folks girding for the world’s end.

That doomsday is indeed upon us—with Christmas just around the corner, heaven forbid—is one gloomy interpretation of a Mayan India calendar.

To wit, Dec. 21 marks the end of a 5,200-year cycle on the Mayan “Long Count” calendar.

It’s a cause for celebration for many in Mexico and Central America, but spells doomsday for some believers. . . . Read Complete Report

Published: Tuesday, December 11, 2012

While doomsayers are predicting the end of the world nine days from now, there is an exclusive group of adolescents who are too busy celebrating to notice them.

They are the children born on Dec. 12, 2000. They are celebrating their 12th birthdays today — the 12th day of the 12th month of 2012.

This triple-12 date has inspired everything from a “12-12-12” fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy victims by celebrities at New York’s Madison Square Garden, to a “Maya Marriage of Many” on Mayan ruins in Belize.

According to the organizers of the group wedding – featuring 12 couples, of course – the ancient Mayans considered 12 a number of strength, conviction, absoluteness and finality. . . . Read Complete Report

The Mayan prophecy that the world will end on December 21, 2012, is now affecting flight bookings according to fare finder Skyscanner, which reports that its customers have taken a sudden interest in one-way tickets to places rumored to be safe havens from the purging flames.

The villages of Bugarach in Southern France, where a UFO supposedly lies dormant in a mountain, and Şirince in Turkey are the current destinations of choice among believers who would prefer not die. This is presumably why one-way tickets searches to the South of France have increased 41 percent while one-way tickets searches to Turkey have surged by nearly a third. . . . Read Complete Report

Evidence of the miserable life lived by the Maya during the Spanish conquest of the 16th century has emerged in an ancient settlement of Mexico’s east coast, as archaeologists unearthed dozens of infant skeletons with signs of malnutrition and acute anemia.

Found in the recently opened archaeological site of San Miguelito, in the middle of the hotel chain area of Quintana Roo, near Cancun, the human burials were excavated within 11 housing buildings dating to the Late Postclassic Mayan Period (1200 – 1550). . . . Read Complete Report

Maya Museum opens in Cancun

By Jayne Clark, USA TODAY

3:22PM EST November 15. 2012 – A $15 million museum has opened in Cancun, just in time for the end of the world.

If some interpretations of the Mayan calendar are correct, the world will come to a screeching halt Dec. 21. So consider the debut of Cancun’s Maya Museum not only a tribute to the ancient civilization that once occupied this part of Mexico and beyond, but a vote of confidence that the sun will rise on Dec. 22. . . .
